CBD in Skincare? Yes, please!!! Effective CBD Skincare from Physicians Grade PRIME

Affiliate Link Press Sample 




CBD in Skincare? Yes, please!!! 

CBD is certainly having its moment in skincare. For good reason! CBD itself is a powerful antioxidant. This means it can protect the skin from free radicals like UV rays, smoke, and environmental pollutants. CBD can also reduce inflammation. This protection translates into fighting those signs of aging. Plus, CBD is rich in Omegas 3 & 6 fatty acids, Vitamins E, A, & C. It has natural antibacterial properties and can help to balance oil production to help our skin behave more normal. 

Our bodies are already ready to process and use CBD. Our skin naturally has cannibinoid receptors which take in the CBD and deliver it to our bodies to promote healing. 

Physcians Grade products contain the highest quality CVD derived from industrial hemp. These formulas can reduce inflammation in the skin and promote calm and healing. Physcians Grade PRIME has a simple philosophy: source and blend premium ingredients to produce unique and highly effective CBD infusions. PG Prime is formulated by a team of skincare experts with over 50 years of combined experience. All finished goods are tested for purity, potency, and saftey by a 3rd party accredited lab and include a scanable QR code that links to the lab results for that exact batch. I really appreciate the transparency so that you know what you are getting with each product! You can rest assured that with PG Prime you are getting unrivaled purity and unmatched effectiveness in your CBD formulas. 

I got to try out 3 products from PG Prime:

While CBD offers a variety of benefits for our skin, I am primarily interested in adding CBD to my skincare routine for its antioxidant protection. So, the CBD Revive Drops formula really appeals to me because not only does it contain CBD but also Adaptogens and Vitamin C! I believe these are all key ingredients for healthy skin and I am really wanting to get them all into my weekly skincare routine. This one product adds all those beneficial ingredients to my skin! 

Key Ingredients:
  • Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • Vitamin C
  • Aloe
  • Adaptogenic Mushroom Extract and Hemp
  • Marula
  • Coconut Oils
This product promises to boost radiance while fighting wrinkles. Who wouldn't want that, lol! It also states it can work to soothe redness, increase cell turnover, and even out skintone, while also stimulating collagen production. Collagen production slows as we age. So, I am always looking for ways to increase this! 

Overally, I really like this oil! I apply just 1-2 drops after cleansing my skin (like I would a serum) or I use it as a mix-in with my regular moisturizer. Super easy to add this in to my morning skincare routine! 

Retails for $60 for 1oz. 


If you are just getting started in using CBD skincare, this might be a great product for you to start with as it is a full-spectrum CBD oil compound blended with effective oils. 

Key Ingredients:
  • 1000 mg Cannabidiol CBD
  • Grape Seed Oils
  • MCT Coconut Oils
  • Hemp Seed Oils

With the short ingredient list, this product is simple, yet effective! You can spot dab this on skin areas that need extra healing or you can massage all over your skin. It is also wonderful as a mix-in booster to your favorite moisturizer. I feel like it really packs a powerful punch! 

Retails for $90 for 1 oz. 

Have you experimented with CBD in a cream yet? CBD is wonderful and so healing for all your aches and pains! I have tried a variety of CBD creams. So, I am super excited to try this one from PG Prime! This is an ultra-hydrating and protecting body balm. 

Key Ingredients:
  • Cannabidiol CBD
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Organic Green Tea Extract
  • Avacado Oil
  • Hemp Oil
  • Coconut Oil
This CBD cream provides deep and lasting hydration for your whole body! It helps to calm and soothe your irritated skin while delivering antioxidant protection and I feel that it has some properties to fight inflammation and heal your skin from the inside out! 

Retails for $70 for 3.34 oz.


Looking to try Physicians Grade Prime? It is a fantastic line with highly effective products. Honestly, I can't wait to try more from this amazing luxury CBD line! You can find Physcian's Grade and PG Prime products at Neiman Marcus and bloomingdales.

 Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador


Who watched the Golden Globes Sunday evening? Did you have a favorite look? I tuned in and OMG Kerry Washington's look blew me away. I mean, go girl with that top (or lack there of, lol). She has got it and is flaunting it beautifully! Her makeup was totally on-pointe, too. Nicole as always looks statuesque and glam. So beautiful!

As Neutrogena's brand Ambassadors, Kerry Washington and Nicole Kidman always have amazing skin and makeup and are using the latest and greatest from Neutrogena. 

Neutrogena reached out to me to provide me with the complete beauty breakdown of her gorgeous look. See below for the full scoop from Neutrogena!


GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINEE NICOLE KIDMAN
MAKEUP ARTIST: KATE SYNNOTT

INSPIRATION
“The inspiration for Nicole’s makeup look was a modern take on old Hollywood glamour to compliment her Versace structured red dress. The makeup look was all about the lashes and lips! We went for a deep matte red lip. I wanted the lips to have a modern velvet feel to compliment Nicole’s gorgeous creamy porcelain skin!”

PRODUCT FOCUS: Neutrogena Healthy Skin Radiant Cream Concealer
“Concealer is the most important part of any red carpet look. I like to use a light weight foundation and build up concealer for extra coverage, that way you get a natural but flawless look! I always use a sponge for concealer application to help press the product into the skin. Healthy Skin Radiant Cream Concealer is the perfect concealer for a red carpet look because it’s infused with skin-loving ingredients, like Vitamin E and peptides.”

Update Your Skincare for the New Year!

 Affiliate Link Press Sample 


Update Your Skincare Routine for The New Year with MyChelle Dermaceuticals:

Are you familiar with MyChelle Dermaceuticals? If you have browsed skincare at Whole Foods market, you might have stumbled across it. I absolutely adore this amazing skincare line! Actually, their Sun Schild Unscented SPF 28 is my current Holy Grail facial skincare SPF! So, I wear it absolutely every day and my skin is so happy with it!

MyChelle Dermaceuticals is a clean, conscious, and comprehensive skin care line which features exceptionally pristine, sustainably sourced, and natural bioactives that are biologically similar to your own skin. You can feel good about using MyChelle because the products work and they are eco-conscious.

Since this is the time of year that many people are trying new things, clearing out cabinets, and making resolutions, I thought it would be a great time for me to share a couple of my favorite items for a fresh new clean beauty routine for 2020!


This is an antioxidant-rich unscented mineral-based SPF daytime lotion for the face. It is so soothing and it leaves my skin hydrated and protected. Plus, it never breaks me out. I just love it! I like to wear it either on its own or mixed or layered with a tinted sunscreen for color. 

I have a strong preference for mineral sunscreens and I always particularly like the ones that are a combination of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. This formula contains both. Also, it contains other nourishing ingredients like Aloe and Vitamin E to soothe the face and reduce signs of irritation while protecting the skin from the sun. I like that this daily SPF feels lightweight and absorbs quickly to leave a smooth, clear, and matte finish. 

Key Active Ingredients:
  • Titanium Dioxide 0.67%–PhysicallyshieldstheskinfromUV exposure, disperses damaging UV rays to limit photo aging, and creates an occlusive barrier.
  • Zinc Oxide (ZinClearTM) 11.6% – A non-opaque Zinc Oxide that provides natural protection against both UVA and UVB rays.
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder – Assists in pain relief, reduces inflammation, rehydrates, and improves the skin’s natural UV absorption capabilities.

I am a big believer in wearing sunscreen *daily* and reapplying throughout the day. We must protect ourselves from the sun. I have lost a dear friend to melanoma and my Dad struggled throughout his life with constantly getting basal cell carcinomas removed. Prevention is the key! 



I am trying to be more conscious about using Vitamin C in my skincare routine. I have always been good about SPF and using retionoids. However, I have not been as consistent with Vitamin C. So, my New Year's Skin resolution is to add more Vitamin C products into my daily skincare routine! 

MyChelle's Perfect C Eye Cream contains powerhouse active L-Ascorbic Acid as well as Plant Stem Cells and Hyaluronic Acid and organic Shea Butter help combat the visible signs of aging. While Bilberry, Gotu Kola, and Cucumber Extracts soothe and help to protect skin against the environment. 

This eye cream is gentle to my delicate and somewhat sensitive eye area. I feel like it hydrates and plumps and minimizes fine lines. 

I like using this eye cream during the day for the Vitamin C benefit and also because I like using retinol eye creams at night. I like the consistancy of this eye cream as it layers nicely under my concealer. I also believe it might be brightening up my eye area a bit as I do know that Vitamin C can have a brightening effect. Overall, I love this eye cream and think it is a great everyday staple procut! 

So, if you are looking to update your skincare routine for 2020, be sure to check out these awesome products from MyChelle! You won't be sorry!
