Your current run-of-the-mill CBD oil isn’t exactly cheap, so you may be surprised to hear that the beauty market is starting to include “luxury” CBD products that cost even more. And they are being sold at high-end stores like Barneys New York, Sephora, and Neiman Marcus.
What exactly is so special about these lux CBD beauty products, and why do they cost so much? And more importantly, are they worth the money? Here’s a look at some of the brands and what they can do for your skin and health.
Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion
Lord Jones may be the OG of luxury CBD beauty. Now you can find their products in high-end retail stores, too. One product that’s worth spending your hard earned paycheck on is the High CBD Formula Body Lotion ($60). If you’ve tried other CBD lotions before and felt they didn’t do much, this one is an extra strength formula with 2 mg of CBD per pump. It’s also going to absorb faster than what you are used to so your skin will feel silky smooth on the outside and less inflamed overall.
Kiehl’s Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate
You might know Kiehl’s for their collection of addicting facemasks and serums. Now they have a Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil ($49) that’s a bit pricier than their other products. (The $49 is for a 1 ounce bottle!) The benefits may justify the cost, though. The oil can help calm blemish- and redness-prone skin. If you suffer from acne, this may be the secret weapon that finally helps. Plus you only need to use a few drops at a time, which helps the little bottle last longer.
Herbivore Emerald Cannabis Sativa Hemp Glow Oil
Herbivore has long been a staple of high-end skincare, so it’s no surprise they are jumping into the CBD market, too. The Emerald Cannabis Sativa Hemp Seed Deep Moisture Glow Oil ($48 for 1-ounce) is made for you if you have dry or combination skin (a mix of dry and oily.) That’s because it’s meant to smooth out uneven skin texture, soothe irritation, and hydrate dry spots. It also contains adaptogens, or super herbs, that are all the rage in skincare for their ability to protect it from environmental stressors and pollution. The additional ingredients like adaptogens including shitake extract and meadowfoam oil may explain the high price tag. If your skin is lacking a glow and looking a bit lackluster, though, it may be worth it.
Bottom line: If luxury and brand name recognition are important to you, it may be worth the price to invest in these products! Of course, if you like to save money, you can find alternatives that aren’t going to eat up your paycheck.
