Natural Beauty Find - HERBIVORE Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil

Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil 

CBD is all the rage right now in many skincare products with it's relaxing and moisturizing qualities, but there's such a big rush of products and brands, it can be confusing to decide what is really worth the money.

I've tested several of these products over the last 6 months and now Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil is one of my favorites.

Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil is a non greasy, hydrating oil that boots its calming powers with added turmeric root and ashwagandha, two natural ingredients that hydrate and give skin a healthy glow.

Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil contains 100mg of full spectrum, hemp-derived CBD which is organically grown in Colorado. It also contains ultra hydrating Hemp Seed Oil and Ashwagandha, an herb that helps skin deal with pollution, UV rays and dehydration.   

Note: Herbivore Emerald CBD  contains less than .3 percent THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis. The presence of THC in small amounts strengthens the "entourage effect" where cannabinoids work together to make full-spectrum CBD more effective than processed, isolated forms of CBD. 

I loved using Herbivore Emerald CBD in the evening after washing and toning my skin.  It gave me the the perfect amount of hydration and skin soothing effect. The 
Moisture Glow Oil  texure was medium weight and silky. I did a 1-2 minute facial massage and also used it on my cuticles before going to bed.  If you have small skin irritations, Herbivore Emerald CBD also helps clear them up, without leaving any greasy feel.  It does have a noticeable, but not too strong, Cannibis scent (there are no artifical fragrances added), when first applied, but it dissapated after a few minutes.

In the morning, my skin felt soft and looked hydraed and glowy.  If I felt like I need a bit more moisture, I would add a light layer before my makeup, which worked well together.  The Herbivore Emerald CBD formula is very concentrated with a nice "slip", so I needed no more than a pea sized amount  for my face, etc., which makes it a product that will last for a while. Even if you have combination like I do, using just a thin layer was enough to get the benefits, and it didn't clog my pores or cause my t zone to look more oily.

If you're making the journey into CBD skincare, I suggest adding Herbivore Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil to your skincare routine today. - RLB

Beauty Find - Urban Decay PERVERSION Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen

Summer is here and I've discovered the perfect new waterproof eyeliner that you won't want to be without.

Urban Decay PERVERSION Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen will give you a perfect, mess free cat eye in just one stroke.  This liquid liner has a new brush-tip pen that gives you a super dark black, semi matte color and extreme precision.

With this ultra-fine flexible brush tip, I had complete control over the shape and the angle of my cat eye that I drew on. The pen design and weight felt very nice in my hand, and it was one of the easiest to use eyeliner pens I've ever used. The formula dried within seconds and then did not budge, even on hot and humid days.  

I wanted to test just how long lasting the formula was, so I left it on for 24 hours and the color was just as dark and the line had not moved by the next morning. If you've got a long day at work or traveling, Urban Decay PERVERSION Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen is the eyeliner you want.  You apply and then you don't have to worry about it for the rest of the day - or night.

Since the pen tip is very fine, I was also able to create a very thin natural line when I wanted a more natural look as well, and the size and shape of the pen is perfect to fit into any day bag or travel bag.

While it costs more than the average drugstore eyeliner,, Urban Decay PERVERSION Waterproof Fine-Point Eye Pen is worth EVERY penny. - RLB
