I've hit a point where 90 percent of the new products I try on a weekly basis include CBD in some form. No fewer than three CBD-spiked beauty products made the cut for our roundup of Fashionista editors' favorite beauty discoveries in January, and though it's only a few days into February, I've already found at least one that will be making an appearance on this month's list: Lord Jones's new High CBD Formula Body Oil.
I was already a fan of the brand's ingestible options, which include gum drops and CBD capsules, as well as its body lotion, which is helpful for dealing with pain and muscle soreness. But then the brand sent over this new roll-on body oil, and I was really blown away. The base is a super-moisturizing blend of avocado, jojoba and safflower oil, and it's fairly thick so as not to be drippy or runny during application. It also absorbs into skin pretty well without leaving behind too much of a slippery film (though I tend to like a little bit of dewy sheen), and doesn't have much of a noticeable scent, so you can really roll it on with abandon.
Plus, I love the rollerball applicator, which is about half the size of the kind you'd find in a roll-on deodorant, enabling you to swipe the oil over skin easily and without a mess. Even better, you can use it to target specific areas, concentrating the product and employing the roller tip to become a makeshift massage tool; I've found this aspect to be especially nice for the tension I carry at the back of my neck and shoulders.
The oil has inherent pain relieving properties because of the 100mg of CBD housed in the bottle, so in addition to rolling it over sore muscles, I've also occasionally swiped some on to help deal with cramps and found it to be pretty effective then, too. It doesn't provide intense warming or cooling, like other topical pain-relievers might, but it does seem to subtly help uncoil tension and soothe aches. To borrow a phrase from many an Instagram meme, I'd really like to pour (roll?) this CBD oil on my entire life.
