CBD Living Soap & CBD Living Chocolate-2 of 2.
CBD soap is a pretty awesome idea. My CBD tincture is something, I will admit, that I don’t always remember to take. I actually write myself reminders or put it right next to my supplements so I don’t forget. I think I wake up and go straight to my coffee maker, so my brain isn’t thinking much of anything other than COFFEE! I may have to put my CBD next to my coffee.
The thought of getting CBD in an easy way, like through soap, is fantastic because we all take showers and without even putting much thought into it, we can get some CBD. It’s a nice, new addition to our regular routine. That makes it so easy.
I was able to try the CBD Living Lavender and Eucalyptus soaps and I will say, they are quite awesome. Now, if you aren’t a bar soap person, don’t click away just yet. I used to not be either, but traveling in our RV makes lugging bottles of body wash around pretty difficult sometimes, so I started using bar soaps around the time we moved into our RV, about a year ago. I love natural soaps too. With extremely sensitive skin, I have to be choosy about what I put on my skin and what I cleanse it with. I have Keratosis Pilaris, otherwise known as “chicken skin”, the little, itchy bumps on my arms and legs. I don’t have too much trouble with it as long as I keep it moisturized and use natural ingredients and if you suffer with a skin condition like I do, you are probably like me in the sense that I get reluctant to use anything other than the products that I am familiar with due to the fear of irritation. The nice things about these soaps is they are 100% organic and hypo-allergenic, so I wasn’t worried about using them on my skin, which is a huge relief.
Scent: The smell of these soaps are so nice. Some soaps I have tried in the past can be overpoweringly scented, but these soaps are really nice. Subtlety scented, which I prefer and naturally scented.
Feel: The feel of the soap in the hands isn’t sticky or tacky. When used, it’s smooth and rinses clean, without that tight feeling on the skin. Now, that tight feeling may make you feel like you are getting a good clean, but certain ingredients in soaps can strip your skin of the natural oils it needs to protect it and I didn’t get that at all with these, but they also rinsed clean. No residue left behind. One thing you will notice is that they don’t lather as much as a soap you may buy at your drugstore. The really soapy soaps (for a lack of a better term) usually contain sulfates, which help them foam up for a better texture and skin feel, but these are not good for the skin. A less lathering soap also doesn’t mean it’s not cleansing, so don’t be concerned with that when using it. It lathers enough to clean, just as it should.
The CBD: The best part about these soaps is, of course, the CBD. Each bar contains 60 MG of nano-CBD. The ingredients (below) are also 100% organic and vegan friendly.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerin (Kosher, of vegetable origin), Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Oat Protein, Natural Fragrance, Mica Powder
- Sodium Hydroxide, otherwise known as Lye, is necessary for making most bar soaps. You probably heard of lye being a caustic or dangerous substance, but it’s not dangerous in the reacted form in soap.
- Mica powder is also a natural ingredient, used to give most cosmetics a pearlescent or shimmery finish. There is a bit of confusion on whether this is a safe ingredient in cosmetics due to reports of lung irritation, but It is safe as long as it’s not directly inhaled, such as in the form of a powder.
- Glycerin is also widely used in soap and other cosmetic products. I use this in my hand soap I make at home. Glycerin is a natural by-product of the saponification process of soap making and helps in moisturizing the skin. Vegetable glycerin is made from natural oils, such as coconut oil.
- Oat protein is fantastic for calming irritated skin, I have used it for years on my arms and legs and you can now find this ingredient in many commonly known products that promote skin calming benefits.
- Safflower oil is an oil that is known to be used for very dry skin and it’s nourishing for skin due to its source of Vitamin E.
As you can see, these soaps are pretty great and getting your CBD, while using a lovely soap is as good as it gets.
The soaps are $14 a bar and honestly, one bar lasts quite a while as long as you take care of it, like with any soap, you might wanna keep this one in a case or out of the reach of water while not showering.
Now for the delicious part of my review. I tried CBD chocolate. Yep, you heard me right. CBD IN CHOCOLATE! It’s an actual thing and it’s very tasty. When I read about this, I knew I had to try it. My dessert of choice is always anything chocolate and it is known to produce chemicals in the brain similar to what we feel when we fall in love. These chemicals act as an anti-depressant. This may be why I never feel sad when eating a chocolate bar!
Add some CBD and even more warm fuzzies for the brain! CBD, as you probably know, can help us feel relaxed and less anxious, also in less pain, so adding this to something like chocolate is honestly, in my opinion, kind of genius.
Now to the best part, how do they taste? Well, like chocolate, but better. Smooth and creamy. Not dry and there isn’t any weird aftertaste or underlying tone, just chocolate and if I am eating chocolate, I want it to taste like chocolate.
Ingredients: Palm Kernel Oil, Sugar, Nonfat Dry Milk, Cocoa, Soy Lecithin and salt.
Each chocolate bar is $22 and they contain 120MG of nano-CBD in 8 segments which give you 15mg per segment.
Onto my leaf score. These products get a four leaf score for the reasons below.
- Natural ingredients.
- Very tasty.
- No unnecessary ingredients.
- Gluten free.
Cons: The reason for the four leaf score.
- Price: For both products, price may be an issue. $14 for the soap isn’t too out of reach for an effective body product. Just look at the price of some CBD out there and you will see you are getting a great deal here. $22 for a bar of their chocolate may seem a bit pricey, but I would buy it in the future as a treat to myself or to have it around for those really anxious times that I need my sugar-tooth satisfied. What to keep in mind is that they are very effective and quality CBD products shouldn’t be cheap. If they are, they aren’t usually quality made and for this, I think it’s a worthy spend and everyone deserves to treat themselves with delicious CBD.
CBD Living is not disappointing me. If you missed my review on their CBD water, be sure to check it out. I love companies that have so many ways to get CBD. CBD isn’t always easy to use in one single form, so discovering a company that has so many to choose from is really the bomb!
Speaking of bombs, check out their other products like bath bombs and lotion.Disclosure: This blog may contain affiliate links.
