Review: If you haven’t heard of the wonderful effects of hemp oil, where have you been? Hemp oil is known to improve “dry skin, acne, wrinkles, scars, sunspots, eczema, and psoriasis.” Well… sign me up!

This Starter Kit contains the Revitalizing Serum, Moisturizing Lotion, and Hemp Salve (5 ml each). All 3 products contain hemp oil. The Revitalizing Serum is a thin consistency with a light citrusy herbal scent. This serum works into the skin easily and absorbs quickly.  Along with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, this contains fabulous, good-for-your-skin ingredients including resveratrol and vitamin C to fight free radicals and signs of aging.

The Moisturizing Serum is to be layered on after using the serum. The consistency is thin and absorbs quickly like the serum, making this pair of products perfect to use under makeup or at bedtime.  The scent is unique and absolutely delicious! It smells like a sweet vanilla creme donut and I really love it!

When used together, these products definitely hydrated my skin without causing breakouts. The redness in my cheeks was reduced and my skin feels firm and healthy.

I have to note that the Hemp Salve that comes with this set contains beeswax, but the company is working on a vegan formula which they hope will be certified vegan soon. Based on that information, I will say that this salve does an excellent job moisturizing. The consistency is that of a thick balm and has a moderately strong lavender/herbal scent. It is intended to use on very dry areas of skin, like elbows, knees, cuticles or even lips. I used this as a lip balm and it made them so soft and smooth with only one use! I will definitely purchase this once they release the vegan version.

The Bottom Line

I truly enjoy these products from Cannabliss Organic! Hemp has such amazing effects on the skin, and these products would be suitable for all skin types. They smell amazing and really bring your skin to life. I highly recommend the Revitalizing Serum and Moisturizing Lotion, and can’t wait for them to release the vegan version of the Hemp Salve!

Thank you, Cannabliss Organic, for sending me this Starter Kit to review! I’m a huge fan!

Leven Rose Natural Beauty – Rosehip and Jojoba Oil Reviews

Company: Leven Rose Natural Beauty

Products:

Rosehip Seed Oil (1 ounce) $13.97

Jojoba Oil (1 ounce) FREE, just pay shipping!

Reviews:

Oh man, oh man, oh man! I’m so happy that I found these products! They’re AMAZING! These 100% organic and cold-pressed oils seriously nourish your skin! Ok, let’s jump into the reviews!

This Rosehip Night Serum is everything that your skin is asking for! Rosehip Seed Oil is a powerhouse in the skincare game! It’s a light oil that moisturizes and fights fine lines and wrinkles. It is also known to fade scars and sun spots and help with dermatitis and skin irritation. It has a high omega fatty acid content along with Vitamin A, Beta-carotene, and Vitamin C and E. This oil really brings it!

Don’t wait another second! These 1 ounce bottles of 100% organic Jojoba Oil are FREE on the Leven Rose website! All you pay is shipping! I ordered 3 bottles and only paid $9.00 for shipping! Seriously, this is a fantastic deal!

Jojoba Oil is a multi-tasking, all around moisturizer. I use 3 drops on my face to hydrate my skin. This oil is said to diminish fine lines and even acne! I use this as a body moisturizer for smooth skin and in my hair as a leave-in conditioner to soften my dry ends. You can even add a few drops to your moisturizer for an extra boost! You only need the smallest amount of this product so this bottle (did I say it was FREE?! Well, I’m saying it again, it’s FREE!) will last quite some time!

The Bottom Line

These 2 products are like the all-star power couple of skin care. They’re fabulous on their own, but together my skin is looking softer, smoother, more radiant, and the texture is improving. I love knowing that the products I put on my skin have immediate effects and will also help my skin in the future.

I HIGHLY recommend these products to anyone looking for vegan, cruelty-free skincare that is organic and naturally effective! You can pick up the Rosehip Seed Oil and get the Jojoba Oil for free! How awesome is that?

Thank you so much to Leven Rose Natural Beauty for sending me these products to review! I can’t wait to explore more of your products!

Life's Nuts Flavored Sprouted Nuts:

Pizzalmonds

Buffalo Almonds and Ranch Cashews

Salt and Vinegar Almonds

TCG Cashews

Cinnamon Pecans

Coconut-Crusted Macadamia Nuts

Crunch Time Sprouted Blueberry Baobab Crunch

Crunch Time Sprouted Rainforest Crunch

Reviews:

I'm going to start with my favorite, the Pizzalmonds! It seriously tastes like pizza! Sundried tomatoes, basil, dates and bell pepper combine to make a delicious and healthy alternative to actual pizza. Honestly, these taste amazing and I'm super impressed!

The Buffalo Almonds and Ranch Cashews are another healthy replacement to the otherwise extremely unhealthy buffalo wings with ranch sauce. I must admit before I turned vegan many years ago, I did enjoy some wings and ranch. Of course, now, I enjoy the plant-based variety, so I was psyched to try these! The Buffalo almonds have a mild spicy kick while the ranch almonds add oniony and zesty flavor. Another winner!

The Salt and Vinegar Almonds have the signature taste of their distant junk food cousins, the Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips. Salt amplifies the pleasant sourness of the vinegar and nuttiness of the crunchy, sprouted almonds. While you're eating these, it's hard to remember they're raw, vegan, gluten-free and actually good for you!

The TCG Cashews (Turmeric, Cayenne, & Ginger) were the spiciest in my opinion and had a very unique flavor profile. The cayenne and ginger definitely gave it a kick that lingered and burned for while! These ingredients are anti-inflammatory and take these sprouted cashews to the next level!

If you're looking for something sweet but know you probably shouldn't down a whole box of Snickerdoodles, try the Cinnamon Pecans! The nuts are full of protein and minerals, and with the subtle sweetness from dates and cinnamon, these are the perfect snack to quiet your evil little sweet tooth!

The Coconut-Crusted Macadamia Nuts are truly a tropical treat! Shredded coconut and dates add sweetness to crunchy macadamias. They're absolute Perfection!

The Crunch Time Sprouted Blueberry Baobab Crunch is yet another one of my favs! Sprouted cashews and macadamias add crunch and protein while Baobab adds vitamin C and antioxidants. What the heck is baobab? Baobab is a superfruit that grows in Africa and helps with energy production and immune support. To make it even healthier, blueberries are added to the mix for a fruity and satisfying snack!

Last but not least, the Crunch Time Sprouted Rainforest Crunch is a fabulous combination of raw cacao, vanilla, dates, cashews, and Brazil nuts that is guaranteed to kill your cravings! Got a chocolate addiction but want a healthier option? Try this!

The Bottom Line

Sprouted, raw, vegan, gluten-free, Kosher, Paleo… these aren't words that you may automatically associate with delicious snacks, but Organic Living Foods has done an INCREDIBLE job creating snacks that not only taste fantastic but are truly healthy and nutrient dense!

The nuts are soaked in "triple-filtered water to activate live enzymes" and then dehydrated "at very low temperatures to protect the integrity of their vital nutrients." With that level of care and detail, these snacks are a must-try! They are suitable for just about every diet and there is bound to be something for everyone!

I highly recommend these products to anyone looking for healthy snacks with great flavor (who isn't?!). Don't just take my word for it! They have sampler packs for sale so you can try all of these out for yourself!

Thank you, Organic Living Superfoods, for sending me these products to review!

Soothing Sloth Bath Bomb Reviews

Company: Soothing Sloth Soap Co.

Products:

Hey Girl Bath Bomb

Frootylicious Bath Bomb

Hello Lover Bath Bomb

Sunset Sorbet Bath Bomb

Reviews:

If you love pretty floral fragrances, you'll love the Hey Girl Bath Bomb! It slowly fizzes around your bath while turning the water a gorgeous and shimmery light pink shade while making your bathroom smell like a bouquet of fresh cut flowers thanks to gardenia, cherry blossom and cedar wood. It leaves the scent behind on your skin so you can even skip perfume!

The Frootylicious Bath Bomb smells like candy and is a fun, energizing way to take a bath! It's sweet fruity fragrance lingers on the skin long after your bath is over. Berries, white tea and ginger combine to creates unique scent while Kaolin clay and coconut oil moisturize and purify the skin.



The Hello Lover Bath Bomb has a sweet and sexy scent and turns your bath water into a deep sapphire blue shade. I soaked in the bath for a long time and felt like I was floating in the ocean at sunset. This scent reminded me of something but I couldn't put my finger on it. After the bath, my boyfriend said it reminded him of Love Spell, and gosh darn it, he was right! It smells very reminiscent of Victoria's Secret signature Love Spell scent, without all of the chemicals and unnecessary junk. Lavender essential oil helps you to unwind while coconut oil softens your skin. You will love this one!

The Sunset Sorbet Bath Bomb's scent is as bright as the sun with its citrusy notes and vibrant colors. Lemongrass essential oil, kaolin clay and coconut oil are the star ingredients of this little show stopper. It slowly fizzes in the tub and creates swirls of yellow, orange and pink. It really looks like a picturesque sunset that you could spend hours looking at!

The Bottom Line

Besides the awesome name, Soothing Sloth Soap Co. creates fabulously scented bath bombs that completely transform your bath water and transports your senses. They are carefully handmade in Cleveland with surfactants that are much milder than other big competitors like Lush. This makes them suitable for children and much less likely to cause skin irritation (Yay!). Kaolin clay detoxes and purifies the skin while coconut oil naturally hydrates, so you get clean and deliciously fragranced skin!

I wish blogs were "Scratch and Sniff" because these bath bombs are so fragrant and beautiful they have definitely become one of my favorite brands (and I've tested a lot of bath bombs!). I will absolutely be including them in my upcoming Holiday Gift Guide, so stay tuned for that!

I highly recommend these products to anyone looking for bath bombs that are fun, high quality, and suitable for all skin types! Be sure to stop by their website to check out these bath bombs and their new skin care products. You'll be glad you did!

Thank you, Soothing Sloth Soap Co., for sending me these amazing bath bombs to review!

ILLUMA Cosmetics – Face Serum and Eye Shadow Reviews

Company: Illuma Cosmetics

Products:

Ink Matte Eye Pan $10.00 USD

Vegan Algae Serum (2 oz.) $48.00 USD

Reviews:

The Ink Matte Eye Pan is a navy blue eye shadow that can be used all over the lid or as a liner. When applied with a dry brush, the color is very sheer (see the top swatch), and can be used to create a light smokey eye. When applied with a wet brush as I did in the middle swatch, the color is much more intense. The bottom swatch was done with a wet liner brush.

I love using a dark blue shade as a liner instead of the same old black liners. It really defines and brightens the eye. When applied wet, this shadow has great staying power, but I recommend using a primer like I do with all shadows.

The Vegan Algae Serum is a light organic serum made for all skin types. The star ingredients include blue green algae extract, white willow bark extract, vitamin E and aloe vera leaf juice. It is made to reduce inflammation and redness, while tightening and brightening the skin. It can be used under moisturizer or added to oils or creams.

When used alone on bare skin, this serum can become a little tacky. I preferred to mix this serum into my face moisturizer which added skin loving nutrients to my routine and got rid of the stickiness. This serum made my skin feel tighter and helped to calm the redness in my cheeks.

The Bottom Line

ILLUMA Cosmetics creates organic, vegan and cruelty free products that are made to enhance everyone's natural beauty. The eye shadow is fantastic when used wet. The face serum is packed with nourishing ingredients that can improve anyone and everyone's skincare routine! Follow ILLUMA Cosmetics on Instagram @illumabeauty and check out their products!

Products:

Apres Sun Body Polish (8 oz/226g) –  $32.00 USD

Apres Sun Body Oil (8 oz/226g) – $29.00 USD

Apres Sun Body Soak (8 oz/226g) –  $32.00 USD

Reviews:

Moon Luv  is a new company that creates cruelty-free, vegan products that are truly luxurious and unique. Their raw ingredients are sourced from all over the world, and each product line features a specific crystal. The Apres Sun Summer Collection (meaning After the Sun) features Citrine, a crystal known to carry the power of the sun. Admittedly, I am not a crystal expert, but I have always been interested in them. After a little research, I found that Citrine comforts and energizes while turning negative thoughts into positive ones… How cool is that?!

The Apres Sun Body Polish is a perfect scrub to use before you hit the beach to tan. It's vibrant yellow color and bright fruity scent is perfect for summer! This truly special scent smells of pink grapefruit and mango, and possibly a little bit of sunshine!  The scrub is made of cornmeal, which is a very gentle, yet effective exfoliant. This body scrub left my skin feeling soft and smooth. Cocoa butter, almond oil, and shea butter work together to hydrate the skin to prepare it for some time in the sun!

The Apres Sun Body Oil is made to be used under your SPF. It contains raspberry seed oil that has a natural SPF of 28-40, while Shea oil, Buriti and Ucaaba oils moisturize and nourish. This oil is thin and is easily massaged into the skin. It leaves a sheen, which is perfect for showing off those arms and legs you worked so hard for all year (push ups and squats for days, am I right?).

The Apres Sun Body Soak is an awesome, unique product. Have you ever soaked in a tub full of crystals? I couldn't say that I had, until trying this. This body soak has the same bright scent as the body polish, maybe even a little bit stronger. It contains Citrine crystals and aloe, making it the perfect after-sun skin treatment. While you're soaking, you can't help but feel happy and energized while your skin is softened and pampered.

I was also given a sample of Moon Luv Hibiscus Coconut Monoi Bath Soak, which I must admit, was one of my favorite bath products to date! The scent of Gardenias, Hibiscus, Lilac, Jasmine, and Coconut fill your bathtub and calm your senses. This soak contains Rose Quartz, the stone of love, beauty, and fertility. Dead Sea Salt and strawberries detox and tone the skin while the sophisticated floral fragrance melts your worries away!

The Bottom Line

Moon Luv Vegan Skin Care is a high quality, luxury skin care line. Their products are made with ingredients that you really don't see everywhere, and the scents are truly special. The frosted glass packaging of the body polish and soaks, along with the metallic bronzey-gold lids, look fantastic on top of your vanity or counter.

The Apres Sun Summer Collection is the perfect line to nourish and protect your skin after summertime sun exposure! I recommend these products to anyone that is looking for luxurious ingredients, bright summery scents, and crystals to energize your senses!

Products:  Rose Garden Body Oil – 4 Fluid Ounces (120 ml)  – $19.95 USD

Rosemary Citrus Makeup Remover – 4 Fluid Ounces (120 ml) – $19.95 USD

West Indies Poppy Seed Facial Scrub – 4 ounces (112 grams) – $22.95 USD

Reviews:

Alright! Let’s jump right in and talk about the Rose Garden Body Oil!

The star ingredients of this antioxidant packed oil are organic cold-pressed Macadamia, Jojoba, and Rosehip oils. This oil is light and absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it soft, smooth, and hydrated. I like to use it right after the shower to lock in moisture and to smell fantastic for the rest of the day!

I wish I could accurately describe how fabulous this oil smells! If I had to smell like one scent for the rest of my life, this would be it! I want to buy 5,000 bottles of this to keep in my closet, ya know, just in case! It’s fresh, light and sweet. I would have to describe the scent to be like a delicious macadamia nut cookie straight out of the oven mixed with a little fruitiness! This scent makes me feel beautiful… I know, I know beauty comes from within but girl, this stuff smells good!

This product is multitasking meaning that it can be used on your skin, in your hair and cuticles, as a massage or bath oil, and for shaving. I really like using this on the dry ends of my hair to make them look smoother and, of course, smell really nice!

The Rosemary and Citrus Makeup Remover is made with organic Jojoba, Sunflower, Apricot Kernel Oils, as well as Sweet Orange, Spearmint, and Rosemary essential oils. The scent is citrusy, herbal, and minty, and is refreshing to use at the end of a long day. I used this remover to take off my concealer, foundation, bronzer, eyebrow pencil, liquid eyeliner, eye shadow, and mascara. This remover did a good job taking off all of these products. It is gentle enough to use around the eyes and it did not dry out my skin. I always let my cleanser or remover rest for 10-20 seconds on my eyes so that it can break up my makeup without having to pull and tug at my skin and lashes. I used this method with this makeup remover, and it worked!

The West Indies Poppy Seed Facial Scrub is made with Kaolin Clay, Organic Poppy Seeds, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Rosehips, and French Green Clay. This is a powder exfoliant, so you need to mix a teaspoon of the product in the palm of your hand with a small amount of water. This scrub is very gentle on the skin, since poppy seeds are the main exfoliant, as opposed to sugar or salt scrubs. The scent is natural, sweet, and somewhat earthy smelling due to the clay. It massages easily into the skin and leaves it smooth and glowing. The clay helps to detox the skin while rosehips provide nourishment. My skin is mostly dry but has been looking a little oily lately. This scrub helped to remove excess oil and dull skin, giving me a radiant complexion!

The Bottom Line

I couldn’t recommend these products more! They are organic, all natural, and effective. The products smell WONDERFUL and perform very well! The prices are great, especially since you only need the smallest amount to work (with the exception of the makeup remover… if you wear a ton of makeup, you’ll need a little more product). The packaging is adorable. It reminds me of old school apothecary bottles with a natural, modern twist. Of course, Thesis Beauty products are vegan and cruelty-free and contain only good-for-you ingredients, I mean, what’s not to love?

Thank you so much to Thesis Beauty for sending me these products to review!

 

CYPRESS SkinCare Review

Company: Cypress SkinCare

Screen Shot 2017-07-13 at 3.22.06 PM.png

“CYPRESS SkinCare is 100% Organic Natural Nourishing Skin Care Indulge Yourself With Affordable Luxury”

“The oils in CYPRESS SkinCare are 100% organic and cold pressed. They are pure, potent goodness delivered by nature. We keep the ingredients true to their natural state by never overheating.

CYPRESS SkinCare products are handcrafted in Laguna Beach and never tested on animals, also vegan. The product containers are the highest quality, BPA free, made from recycled material and recyclable. And lots of people ask why I don’t use glass. The plastic I use has the same ‘foot print’ on the earth as glass but enables me to keep my costs down which are passed on to our Cypress Family Clients.”

Body Love

Pure Love Cleanser

Face Love

Review:

Body Love is a light yet powerful oil that moisturizes the skin without feeling greasy. 100% Organic, Cold-pressed Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond, Jojoba, and Olive Oil blend together to give you some serious hydration! It absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves a subtle sheen, perfect for showing off your legs and skin this summer! Body Love has only the slightest scent of coconut oil and lemon essential oil, and it’s absolutely delicious! The ultimate test was to massage this oil into my dry feet, throw some socks on, and see how it moisturized. I’m happy to report that it made my feet much softer and smoother after just one use!

I usually use cream cleansers to gently clean my dry, sensitive skin, so I was curious to try the Pure Love Cleanser. It is a blend of 100% Organic Hemp, Jojoba, Castor Oil, and Lemon Essential Oil. I’m happy to report that this oil cleanser quickly melted away my foundation, concealer, and eye makeup. My face was left completely clean, without a trace of makeup left behind. My face felt hydrated and soothed after massaging off this cleanser with a warm washcloth. After using this, my face had a nice glow with noticeably less redness.  I could have even gotten away with not using a moisturizer afterward, but I didn’t want to get the skincare gods all riled up, so I did anyway.

Face Love is a lightweight beauty oil that leaves your face moisturized and radiant. The ingredients include 100% Organic Almond, Cold-Pressed Coconut, Hemp, and Jojoba with Cypress Essential Oil.  I used Face Love after washing my face and before applying my foundation, which made it glide on and blend much easier (ugh, don’t you just hate it when your foundation gets patchy looking because of your dry skin?). I only needed 1-2 pumps of this product to cover my face and neck.  It made my skin feel and look soft, healthy and happy!

The Bottom Line

Cypress SkinCare makes pure, good-for-your-skin oils that do any excellent job hydrating, cleansing, and nourishing your skin. Of course, the products are all vegan and cruelty-free, YAY! The Pure Love Cleanser and Face Love oil work wonderfully together, and Body Love is an excellent, all-natural body moisturizer. I highly recommend giving these products a try!

Georgia Charms Cosmetics Product Reviews 

Company: Georgia Charms Handmade Cosmetics  

“Fresh Handmade Cosmetics, Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars and More”

“I believe in the therapy of natural cosmetics. Sometimes all you need to turn your day into a happy one is a hot bath, a beautiful bath bomb, and a good book. I love providing people with things that they will enjoy and brighten their day. Enjoy the little things in life!”

Products:

Mother of Unicorns 40 oz. XXXL Bath Bomb – $15.00 USD

Rose Glow Pearl Priming and Setting Mist (2.7 oz. – $12.00 USD)

Cool As A Cucumber Facial Toner (2.7 oz – $7.95 USD)

Reviews:

Let’s just jump right in and talk about the GIANT BATH BOMB in the room! The Mother of Unicorns 40 oz. XXXL Bath Bomb is everything you could ever want in a bath bomb… just a lot more of it! Everything from the sweet strawberry fragrance, the bright pink, yellow, and blue colors to the biodegradable glitter is absolutely fantastic! Not gonna lie, I had a hard time waiting to take pictures of this. I just wanted to throw it in the tub to watch what happens! To put the size of this Mother of Unicorns Bath Bomb into perspective, a Lush bath bomb is 6.3 ounces. This bad boy is over 6 times as big! Now that is a big mother (of Unicorns)!

Once I dropped this gigantic bath bomb into the tub, it fizzed and danced around for over 2 minutes! It swirled the beautiful pink, yellow, and blue colors to create the bathtub masterpiece you see above! See the “V” for vegan?! Once the bubbles disappeared you’re left with gorgeous amethyst colored water that I just didn’t want to put down the drain! I do have to note that my bathtub was stained a bright magenta color which required me to scrub it with bleach. It’s a good idea to clean your tub after each use, so it wasn’t too big of a deal. Totally worth it!


The Rose Glow Pearl Priming and Setting Mist is another super unique product from Georgia Charms. It’s a primer and setting spray made with homemade rose water and aloe vera juice to hydrate and nourish the skin, witch hazel to purify, and natural mica to give ya some shimmer! It has a light, natural, powdery rose fragrance and the shimmer is a golden tone that makes tanned summer skin and pretty much all skin tones look GORGEOUS!
This spray is not shy with the shimmer, so 1-2 sprays is all you need. Unless of course, you want to look like a Golden Globe Award, which is cool, too. I did have a few instances where the pump got stuck, and when I tried again, I got a ton of product on me. So, I suggest giving it a practice pump, then spraying it onto your face. This product really does give your skin a nice and summery glow while giving it a kiss of hydration. I sprayed it on my collar bones and arms to look like the mermaid I was born to be, because why the heck not?


The Cool as A Cucumber Soothing Facial Toner is a nice and refreshing treat for ya skin! Aloe vera and witch hazel hydrate your pretty little face while cucumber extract cools and calms. This is perfect for hot summer days and nights when you don’t want to use a heavy moisturizer but still want a little something on your skin. The fine mist smells of fresh cucumbers and quickly absorbs into the skin, making it the perfect for using under your makeup or moisturizer.

The Bottom Line

The Mother of Unicorns XXXL Bath Bomb is probably the most fun I’ve ever had taking a bath! I highly recommend trying this, or any of the other XXXL bath bombs out. The Rose Glow Setting Mist is a great product, just be careful with the pump! The Cool as a Cucumber Soothing Facial Toner is nice and refreshing, and I would recommend it to anyone that likes the smell of cucumber! Georgia Charms makes unique, high-quality products that are fun to use and great for your skin. Head on over to their site to check out all that they have to offer!

Blue Ridge Hemp Co. CBD Infused Product Reviews 

Company: Blue Ridge Hemp Co.

“We have taken Industrial Hemp derived CBd and combined it with other ethically and sustainably source Terpene rich botanicals to form products that allow all people to harness the healing power of Cannabis.”

Products:


CBD Infused Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Joint Care ( 10 ml, 50 mg CBD – $20.00 USD)

CBD Infused Massage & Body Oil ( 8 oz, 100mg CBD – $40.00 USD)

CBD Infused Salve ( 2 oz, 200 mg CBD – $50.00 USD)

All 3 Products – Joint Care Bundle (On Sale for $90.00 USD)

Info/Links:

So, if you’re anything like me, you may have questions about CBD. What is it? What is it used for? Is it legal? Don’t worry, Blue Ridge Hemp Co.’s website breaks this information down for ya! Click here for general info about the company/CBD or check out the science behind CBD.

Alright everybody, put your science hats on for a second. CBD (Cannabidiol) is a nonaddictive compound derived from Industrial Hemp that is known for its health effects, like reducing pain and inflammation and even improves anxiety and stress. It is not psychoactive (it doesn’t get you high) and does not contain THC (I told you, it won’t get you high!).  I highly recommend that you check out their website to become an expert, I mean, why not? This is interesting stuff!

Screen Shot 2017-06-23 at 8.58.40 AM

Reviews:

Alright, let’s do this! The first product I tried was the CBD Infused Roll-On Essential Oil Blend – Joint Care. It comes packaged in a super handy roller ball and contains 10 ml of product with 50 mg of CBD. Grapeseed Oil is the base of this product, along with Cannabis Sativa L. Extract (CBD). Turmeric and White Willow Bark amp up the pain and inflammation fighting ability of this product, and essential oils from Pine, Juniper Berry, Rosemary, Lemon Peel, and Peppermint give this a unique herbal, woodsy fragrance that I honestly freakin’ love and look forward to!

I used the Roll-On about 3-4 times a day on my hands (my joints always hurt), feet, and temples. I love how convenient it was to take with me and how quickly I could apply it wherever I needed it. How effective was it? Well, keep reading or skip to The Bottom Line at the end of this post.

 

Next up, is the CBD Infused Massage & Body Oil. You get 8 oz with a 100 mg of CBD. This oil has the same fresh and woodsy scent as the Roll-On, and it is a thin oil with a bunch of moisturizing ingredients. It contains Sunflower, Sesame Seed, and Jojoba oils, which will leave your skin feeling hydrated after you use it (who doesn’t like a multi-functional product?!). It is mineral oil based, so if you avoid that or are sensitive to it, I suggest you look into the other products in Blue Ridge Hemp Co.’s wide range of products.

I used this massage oil on my hands and feet to reduce joint pain and stiffness. I did, however, forget that I fired my personal masseuse (sarcasm, I’m so cute), so I did not get to use it on my sore back except for the time my boyfriend got home early and helped me out. Thanks, babes! It is important to note that this oil has a higher concentration of CBD than the Roll-On.

Last but not least, is the CBD Infused Salve that contains 2 oz of product with 200 mg of CBD. This product is Mango Butter based and also contains Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, and Menthol. The scent is similar to the others, but you also get fruity notes and hints of cocoa with a slight cooling sensation from the menthol. I really like this scent! This product has the highest concentration of CBD. I used it at night time before bed on my hands and feet. It has the texture of a thick balm and a little bit goes a long way! It melts into your skin quickly and leaves behind the awesome scent!

The Bottom Line

I am so glad I got the opportunity to try out these products from Blue Ridge Hemp Co.! They are made with good-for-you ingredients, the packaging is dope, and the company itself is aimed at helping people deal with pain in a natural, vegan, and cruelty-free way (Tylenol, who?). Pretty awesome.

I would say that I have pretty severe pain in my hands, and I do feel that these products have decreased the pain and stiffness over the past week. With continued use, I am sure it will continue to help. If you have severe pain like I do, I highly suggest that you select the products with the highest concentration of CBD, like the salve and gel or give a bundle like this one a try. If you are looking for a product that is quick and easy to use on the go, definitely try out the Roll-Ons! They have a range of products that address muscle pain, joint pain, stress, and more. There are also body scrubs, lotions, and even transdermal patches that I definitely want to try out!

I highly recommend these products and enjoy using them! Thank you, Blue Ridge Hemp Co., for generously giving me these products to review! I truly enjoyed meeting you and will be a customer for life! Head on over to their website to learn more about CBD and sign up for a $10 off coupon on your order! They’re also on Instagram @BlueRidgeHempCo. Let me know how you like the products!
