Crave Skincare

For all of you who got her via my YouTube channel welcome to my blog! I wanted to do this review through and cross platform because it’s covering multiple items and I wanted to give each of them enough time to shine. 
I have already introduced you to the use of cannabinoids (CBD specifically), in skincare items and I’ve also already introduced you to the Crave Skincare brand via its one body care product Alchemy.  What I did over this past month is dive face first (literally lol), into a morning skincare routine that consisted exclusively of products from Crave Skincare. Crave Skincare is an all-natural, handmade, and well thought out brand that uses a variety of oils and botanicals. What makes them different is one botanical that is used throughout the line is CBD and Hemp Oils.

I’ll break them down by each product in order of use (all of which I love).
Crave Oil Cleanser + War Paint Remover
Ingredients: Rice Bran Oil, D1-PPG-2 Myreth-10 Adipate, Hemp oil with Hemp extract (Aerial parts), Castor Oil, Caprylic Capric Triglycerides, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Kukui Nut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Cucumber Seed Oil, Moringa Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil, Kalahari Watermelon Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Sea Buckthorn Fruit Oil, Elemi Oil, Rosemary and Sunflower Oil, Bisabolol, Phytosterols, Alpha Lipoic Acid
This product will be my new go to oil cleanser (now that the one I use to use is no longer made), a little goes a long way, and like a really quality oil cleanser it gets your skin ultra clean without any stripping or making your skin fill oddly tight.
Crave 40 Winks Eye Serum
Ingredients: Water, Safflower Oleosomes, Tremella Mushroom Extract, Apple Fruit Extract, Goji Berry Extract, Lactobacillius Ferment, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein + Glycine Soja (Soybean) Protein + Superoxide Dismutase, Lactobacillus/Nereocystit Luetkeana Ferment Filtrate (Sea Kelp Bioferment), Nannochloropsis Occulata (Algae) Extract + Pullulan, Saccharide Isomerate, Betaine, Lactobacillius Ferment + Cocos Nucifera Estract, Macadamia ternifolia seed oil, Glycerine, Salvia Hispanica (Chia) Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil)+ Hemp Extract (Aerial parts), Lecethin (Sunflower, Non-GMO), Sodium PCA, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 + Panthenol + Sodium Hyaluronate + Algae (Dunaliella Salina) Extract, Hydrococtyl (Centella Asiatica) Extract,Beta Glucan (yeast), Tocopherol (Vit. E), Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Resveratrol (Grapeseed), Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Camellia Sinesis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Caffeine, Sclerotium Gum, Xanthan Gum, Gluconolactone
This product is great as well and easy to apply, although it’s a bit looser than a traditional serum. I highly suggest putting this in the refrigerator to make it even more refreshing during applications. While it didn’t take care of darkness, I did notice I was significantly less puffy (especially since I use this in the morning when my bags are at their worst).
Crave Virgin Skin
Ingredients: Water, Sea Kelp Bioferment, Safflower Oleosomes, Tremella Mushroom Extract, Apple Fruit Extract, Goji Berry Extract, Lactobacillus, Glycerine, Betaine, Licorice Root Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment and Cocos Nucifera Extract, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides (fatty acids from Coconut Oil), Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp) Oil with Hemp extract (Aerial parts), N-Acetyl Glucosamine, Lecithin (Sunflower Non-GMO), Licorice Root Extract, Sodium PCA, Green Tea Extract, Vitamin E, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Coconut Endosperm, Algae Extract + Pullulan, Saccharide Isomerate, Xanthan Gum, Ferulic Acid, Centella Asiatica Extract (Gotu Kola), Beta Glucan (Yeast), Bisabolol, Sunflower Oil and Rosmarinus Officinalus (Rosemary Antioxidant), Canarium Luzonicum Oil (Elemi Oil), Sclerotium Gum, Xanthan Gum, Gluconolactone.
Out of the two products you should use post cleansing this was my least favorite (I’m dedicated to the next one I’ll list), I just don’t’ think it is for me specifically because I’m not really looking to firm up my skin although it does have some benefits I do want such as brightening and evening the skin tone, but since I did not use this one consistenatly for the entire month I cannot 100% say it hits all though marks, although it has great reviews and may be the product you are looking for.
Crave Radical-C Serum
Ingredients: Agua (Water), Lactobacillus/Nereocystis Luetkeana Ferment Filtrate (Sea Kelp Bioferment), Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oleosomes, Lactobacillius Ferment, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vit. C), Citrullus Lanatus (Watermelon) Fruit Extract, Citrulline, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Betaine, Lactobacillus + Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil)+ Hemp Extrat (Aerial parts), Lecithin (Sunflower Non-GMO), Sodium PCA, Tocopherol (Vit E), Leontopodium Alpinum (Edelweiss) Extract, Glycerin, Ferulic Acid, Melatonin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf (Green Tea) Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil, Bisabolol, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract + Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Oil, Xanthan Gum, Gluconolactone, Quercetin
Similar to the 40 Winks product in that it is less like a traditional serum you’ll find in a drug or a department store, it’s is less viscus and a bit more watery. However it’s still powerful, and a little goes a long way (the full size bottle will last a while). While this product is also “anti-aging” like virgin skin, what I love about it is that it has some non-oily natural hydrating ingredients, and it’s really a great antioxidant potion for those who live in a city environment where the sun is present (i.e. Cali). It’s really an all in one product, you can kick out your hyaluronic acid, environmental defense cream, and vitamin C serum because this takes care of all three. The small amount you use really moves across your skin and absorbs easily with no film, or oiliness.
NOTE: You either use Virgin Skin or Radical-C Serum not both
Crave Salvation Oil Serum
Ingredients: Squalane Olive Oil, Macadamia Oil, Jojoba Oil, Borage Oil, Echium Oil, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp Oil)+ Hemp Extrat (Aerial parts), Chia Seed Oil, Moringa Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Black Cumin Seed, Rose Hip Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglycerides, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Lecithin (Non-GMO Sunflower), Sea Buckthorn CO2, Bisabolol, Vitamin E, Phytosterols, Tetrahydrocurcuminiods (Tumeric), CoQ10.
I 100% prefer to hydrate/moisturize with an oil, but it’s always so hard to find one for someone with combination skin that won’t have me looking like an oil slick by the end of the day.  The word serum is misleading when you open up the bottle, because it’s 100% an oil. That said product has a few ingredients (that I love) that I used independently in the past as skin hydrators and, or mixed myself. This has all of my absolute skincare oil favorites, plus ones I never heard of, ones I wanted to try, with a splash of CBD on top, it really could not get any better.
Crave Glo-Berry Glistening Skin Oil Serum
This is really similar to Salvation Oil (I love them equally), but with a shimmering/dewy (but your skin isn’t oily) finish to it. I love this one, but I don’t wear it every day. I use it when I’m going out, or on the weekend for the most part. I don’t want to waste next level glowing skin at work LOL.
Ingredients: Squalane (Olive), Opuntia ficus indica (Prickly Pear) Seed Oil, Daikon Seed Extract, Cannabis Sativa Seed (Hemp) Oil + Cannabidiol (CBD), Psidium guajava (Guava) Seed Oil, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Berry Oil, Citrullus lanatus (Watermelon) Seed Oil, Caprylic Capric Triglycerides, Red Raspberry Oil, Sunflower Lecithin (Sunflower, Non-GMO), Tocotrienols (Vit E), Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Cananga Odorata Flower Oil (Ylang Ylang), Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Oil, Bisabolol (from Chamomile), Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Tetrahydrodiferuloylmethane (Tumeric antioxidant), Alpha lipoic acid
NOTE: I usually use one or the other and not both Salvation Oil and Glow Berry at the same time, but you technically can do that.
Here’s exactly how I used the products by visiting my YouTube Page:  
My overall thoughts, I love the line and I’ll definitely continue to use it. The items I will probably keep re-ordering forever even if I add in products from another brand are the Oil Cleanser + War Paint Remover, Radical-C, Salvation Oil Serum, and Glo-Berry Glistening Skin Oil Serum.  Hell, I actually already reordered I even the full size of the Salvation oil as well as ordered a travel sizes of all the products to put in my carry on this summer when I travel.  You can check the price points, any further product information,  and purchase CraveSkincare online.
