Making the Swap to CBD Oil Cleanser

 

“Now, with One For All, I have no redness.”


 

 


So often our approach to face cleansers leans more cream-based instead of oil. We’re afraid of using an oil-based cleanser out of fear of creating breakouts or clogging the skin. But the truth is, when you use an oil cleanser on your skin not only are you breaking down and dissolving all impurities, but you’re balancing the production of your skin’s natural oils, furthering enhancing the softness and glow of your natural skin.

 

A luxurious blend of CBD, gardenia, moringa, tonka bean and sea buckthorn transforms the senses and breathes new life into the skin. Discover one of our own’s experience with this topical wellness oil in the Q&A below!

What is your favorite part of your skin? 

I like that my skin is smooth, I rarely have breakouts except maybe around my period and that’s just a few blemishes. But I guess my favorite part of my skin is that it’s not oily or dry. I have a pretty good balance which is why I was hesitant about putting oil on my face. I didn’t want an oil build up or for it to change my skin to be dry or oily.

 

Where do you judge yourself the most when it comes to your skin? And why?

I stress about the infrequent pimples I get because every day it seems my makeup doesn’t stay on enough to cover blemishes when they do happen. But overall, I’m pretty happy with my skin.

Sidenote: I don’t protect it well enough in the sunlight and I judge my skin for getting dark spots/moles even though I didn’t properly apply sunscreen as much as I should have. 

 

How do you use the One For All in your skincare routine?

I used it, in the beginning, only as a makeup remover but now I also use it as a cleanser. My one and only cleanser. Every night and sometimes in the morning if I feel like I need my “spa treatment” as I use it, let it sit and then apply a hot washcloth to wipe off.

I did mix with my usual primer/foundation today and it felt like I had more coverage. Might try that again. But I do like it best as a cleanser.

I use three drops every night to remove my makeup – on my forehead and both cheeks.

 

What did you use as a cleanser before One For All?

I used Acure face wipes to remove my makeup and Bare Minerals face cleanser or Clean & Clear. (Both are cream cleansers.) All mostly for sensitive skin.

 

Do you feel a difference between the CBD oil One For All cleanser as opposed to a traditional cream cleanser?

Yes. I immediately feel my skin is tighter than before. I feel like the skin under my eyes is getting tighter (a spot on my face I’m always concerned about). It’s just such a natural, clean, strong skin feeling.

Also, even with the cream cleansers for sensitive skin, I can say that my face would still be subject to redness after I cleansed. Now, with One For All, I have no redness.

CBD oil

How does it make your skin feel?

Clean, smooth and I love the scent!

 

Does it give you any other feels or stress relief besides external? 

Just knowing I am using natural products in yet another part of my life is reassuring to me.

I am on a mission to wear less makeup and I have been able to do that lately so I would say it gives me more confidence in my skin.

 

How often do you use it?

Every night and sometimes in the morning.

 

Have you tried mixing it with other products and using in different parts of your routine as a leave on product?

Tried that today. It felt I had a bit more coverage but I do love to use a warm washcloth to wipe it off every night so I don’t know how often I will use it with my primer.

Five Benefits of Sweet Almond Oil for Skin Care

 

Cleopatra liked to bathe in a luxurious mix of sweet almond oil, honey and the milk of a young donkey. The Romans believed almond oil could help reduce wrinkles. The Persian-Greek medicos recommended it for softening dry skin. Originally grown in the Mediterranean region of the Levant, almond trees were cultivated in Greece and Italy. They became an important source of commerce in Central Europe during the Middle Ages, and herbalists soon realized the benefits of using almond oil on the skin. John Gerard, the English botanist, wrote that: “The oil of almonds makes smooth the hands and face of delicate persons…” The ancients had excellent reasons for applying rich and fatty almond oil to their skin. Almond oil contains several antioxidants, including vitamins D and E, as well as essential minerals and fatty acids that help the skin in several ways. Why not follow the lead of the wise Romans and Persians by trying this plant-based oil? Learn more about how it can benefit you, and why it is a key ingredient in our topical oil, One For All.

1. Cleanse Your Skin with Almond Oil

Cleanse your face with almond oil before going to bed each night. Joanna Vargas, a celebrity makeup artist, explains, “Oil cleansers break up makeup on the face in a gentle way instead of stripping the skin so skin won’t feel irritated after.” Oil-based cleaners work because the molecules in the oil react with your body’s natural oil, which shares a similar composition.

2. Almond Oil Makes a Wonderful Moisturizer

Almond oil contains a large amount of Olein Glyceride Linoleic Acid, a rich fatty acid, so it softens and rejuvenates the skin and helps prevent wrinkles. This soothing and calming oil will soon make your complexion look brighter if you use it every day. Dermatologist Soma Sarkar recommends using several plant-based oils on your skin, and she especially recommends almond oil as a moisturizer for dry skin. Spending long periods in the sun causes skin damage as we grow older. Almond oil helps prevent the harmful effects of UV radiation, and it slows down the aging process, according to a study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology. Avoid tough and leathery skin by moisturizing with this natural oil and using UV creams in the sun.

3. Almond Oil Helps Skin Problems

Suffering from red, itchy and flaky skin can be a nightmare. The topical application of almond oil may provide some relief, partly because it contains Vitamin D, which has a “healing effect on the skin.” Almond oil has been used to treat eczema and psoriasis for centuries. Zeeshan Ahmed states in his study published in Complementary Theories of Clinical Practice that the ancient Chinese, Ayurvedic and Greco-Persian schools of medicine used it to treat these skin conditions, and that the mineral-rich oil has inflammatory properties that result in a calming effect on the skin.

 

4. Almond Oil May Minimize Stretch Marks

Applying certain natural products to the skin during pregnancy may reduce unsightly stretch marks. Dr. Alyssa R. Golas at NYU Langone Health recommends almond oil, according to an article in the Australian version of PopSugar. The smooth, lightly scented oil is well-absorbed by the skin, and it doesn’t contain harmful chemicals.

 

5. Almond Oil Helps Reduce Under-Eye Circles

Who wants to see ugly dark under-eye circles when they wake up? These circles have several different causes, including allergies, heredity and asthma. Natural aging and lack of sleep are some other reasons for shadows under the eyes. Massaging the delicate skin around the eyes with a few drops of moisturizing and anti-inflammatory almond oil every night will soon chase those circles away!
