I have to admit that I have not taken the best care of my skin my whole life, at least when it was under my control. But over the past 10 years or more, I have learned to take my skin more seriously.
When I was younger, like between 8 and 12 years old, I never really thought much about it. I would shower and go, who needed moisturizer? That’s for old people and girlie girls. That was so WRONG, but, I was young, and you couldn’t tell me a darn thing. I knew it all, or so I thought.
After a certain age (puberty) I noticed the dry ashy skin on my elbows and knees that most girls didn’t have. I was quite the tomboy and did not do girlie things, this included using lotions and moisturizers.
Let’s be brutally honest here, puberty hit me like a brick wall. I didn’t even notice the hair growing under my arms until one day at a public swimming pool. I raised my hands above my head and rested my fingers in the chain link fence and happened to look over at something beside me, by golly I noticed this patch of hair in my arm pit and was like, “where did that come from?”. And that is just the beginning of that tale.
Then I went through a phase where I thought you could use any moisturizer for any part of the body. See, I would take lotion, that was meant for your hands and body, and use on my face. I never really gave much thought to it, all moisturizers were the same to me.
Now being older and somewhat wiser, I know that you should use a good body moisturizer, and use a separate facial moisturizer as well. There is a difference and they are both important for healthy, younger looking skin.
The Benefits of Hemp Oil and Shea Butter
Both hemp oil and Shea Butter have essential and non-essential fatty acids that are great for moisturizing your skin, and maintaining a moisture balance. We often forget that our bodies require these essential fatty acids inside and out. But, we do not create them, so we must get them from other sources.
With Hemp Oil and Shea Butter combined in one body butter, this makes a powerhouse of a moisturizer, with the great fragrance of Shea Butter. It applies easy and absorbs quickly, leaving your skin feeling silky and smooth, and replenished of essential fatty acids for a healthier glow.
Why I Chose Civilized Cosmetics CBD Infused Body Butter
I came across Civilized Cosmetics about 2 months ago and was very intrigued by them. Before I ever ordered one item, I did a lot of research on this company. Civilized Cosmetics got my vote for several reasons.
All of their products, not just the CBD and Hemp oil products, are cruelty-free and plant based. Their goal is to lessen the use of harsh chemicals and animal by-products that are in a majority of cosmetics and beauty products. And to develop a line of healthier products for consumers to choose from.
The first product I tried from them is the CBD Oil Infused Skin Cream with Apple Stem Cell face cream. It is, by far, the best face cream I have ever used, and I have tried a lot. With the way the face cream absorbed into and softened my skin, there was no way I was not going to try the CBD Oil Infused Body Butter.
To say I became a fan very quickly is an understatement, I love them both a lot, and will continue to use them.
How Often I Moisturize
As with the face cream, I apply my CBD Infused Body Butter twice daily. In the mornings while getting ready and after my shower in the evening. I find that these are the best times for me to moisturize.
I have always had very dry skin that is hard to keep it moisturized. After two weeks of using this product I have noticed some very nice changes and I will continue using it.
Changes I Have Noticed
I have found over the past two weeks of use, that I am using less moisturizer each time as my skin is maintaining the moisture levels. My hands, elbows, knees, and feet have always been dry, but now, they are showing signs of becoming more healthy and softer, the overall health of my skin has improved a lot.
This is something I have never experienced with any moisturizer. I had to apply the same amount every time and my skin was always thirsty. There was never a satisfaction level.
Civilized Cosmetics, Do I Recommend This To Family And Friends
I believe that the creator’s of Civilized Cosmetics actually stand behind their products and that they are made from quality ingredients, so YES, I do recommend Civilized Cosmetics to my friends and family, I have used these products and I am fully satisfied with my results.
I would love to hear your opinion of or experience with Civilized Cosmetics, and their Moisturizing Shea Butter With Hemp. Please feel free to leave a comment below, I will get back to you as soon as possible.
