Hey there! How are you? I hope you’re staying well and sane amidst this roller coaster of a year.
2020 has been really stressful and mentally draining for all of us. And If you’re anything like me, stress starts to show on your skin in the form of unexpected acne and eczema flare ups. I have been struggling to keep my hand eczema from flaring up again and again, constant hand washing and sanitizing make the matters worse.
Having heard about the amazing benefits of CBD based products, I was very excited when Gentle Jane reached out to me and offered me their soothing products to try. After using them for 2-3 weeks, I have my thoughts gathered on their comfort cream and their glow oil. I’ll be listing them in the form of product aspects and my opinions on those aspects.
Ingredients and claims:
Please remember that I’m no expert in ingredients and I’m only stating the ingredients for your information. The Gentle Jane Superfood+CBD comfort cream and glow oil both contain 500 mg CBD. The comfort cream claims to create and restore moisture barrier while the glow oil claims to brighten and plump your skin. I’m always on the hunt for products to give me relief from itchy and scaly skin around my palms and fingers and comfort cream has been really effective because it’s so nourishing. I apply it before going to bed and wake up with smooth hands.
The glow oil is very intensely hydrating. I have very oily skin so I use it only 1-2 times a week which is pretty normal for my skin as I can’t use facial oils every night because If I do, my skin starts to break out and I develop tiny bumps around my cheeks and chin. The glow oil really leaves my skin glowing and soft and if you’re looking for something for dry skin then I highly recommend trying this one.
Texture and Quantity:
The comfort cream has a very buttery texture and I love how it melts into my skin. Since the cream has a lot of oils as main ingredients, it does leave your skin a little greasy but I find that very helpful for my eczema spots. Since the texture is so thick, a little goes a long way. I do wish that the cream had some kind of subtle fragrance to it so that it’s pleasant to the senses.
Now the oil is very luxurious and it has a very subtle fragrance which reminds me of the kinds of oils used in expensive spas. It’s a very relaxing ritual to apply the oil and massage it into my skin with my Gua Sha tool after the end of a tiring day. And since it’s very rich in consistency, you only need 3-4 drops so the bottle will last you a long time.
Packaging and Price:
I love that their products come in sturdy and luxurious glass packaging. The 2.0 oz. jar of comfort cream is priced at $50 and the 1.0 Oz. bottle of glow oil is prized at $70. I do wish that the oil was less expensive because it’s a little steep for 1 oz.
Overall, I’m very happy with the products and I recommend checking out their products if you struggle with eczema and dry skin. You can use my code “Trulyangieblog” to save 15% off your first order 🙂
