I found Crave Skincare from the online shop, The Art of Care, an excellently curated collection of CBD-based products. Check them out if you’re into that CBD life too! Also, if that’s you, stay tuned because I’m working on a post about all of my favorite CBD-based beauty products.
Will Crave Skincare make another appearance? Read on to find out.
I purchased the Crave Skincare Trial Pack for $39.00 which contains 7 4.5 mL sample sizes of the following products:
- Glo-Berry Glistening Skin Oil
- Oil Cleanser War Paint Remover
- Salvation Phyto-Beauty Oil
- Alchemy Lux Body Oil
- Virgin Skin Youth Serum
- Rebel-C Antioxidant Serum
- 40 Winks Firming Eye Serum
This is a cruelty-free, plant-based skincare line, made with hemp-derived CBD (short for cannabidiol) and no silicones, parabens or petrochemicals. I’ll be telling you about my experience with the products, oils first, followed by the serums.
Salvation Phyto-Beauty Oil
This is a blend of oil to address nearly any skin issue you might be having. The ingredient profile is stacked, including olive-derived squalane plus oils from macadamia, jojoba, borage, chia seed, moringa, evening primrose, rose hip, pomegranate and sea buckthorn. It also contains brightening turmeric and black cumin, as if you needed more oomph. This skincare oil is fully-freaking-loaded.
Glo-Berry Glistening Skin Oil
With squalane and oils from prickly pear, guava, acai, watermelon and red raspberry, this is a literal fruit salad of antioxidants. In addition, this contains mica for an instant glow. Seriously, it’s so pretty on it’s own or under makeup. I put this on the other day, followed by my foundation, didn’t set it with powder and my husband told me I looked like a “slime ball” which I personally took as a compliment. I love when I look glistening and shiny.
Oil Cleanser War Paint Remover
As a dry skinned daily makeup wearer, ya girl loves a good oil cleanser. I rub this all over my face (eyes too) then steam my makeup away with a hot washcloth. It’s the most relaxing way to wash your face. I like the herbal scent and it doesn’t leave skin feeling greasy. I’ve not used this on days I don’t have makeup on as it seems best for the night time cleanse.
Alchemy Lux Body Oil
I wish I could say I religiously moisturize my bod but I suck and I don’t. I won’t be able to get by with that once it gets colder and we start running the heat. This feels really luxurious and cozy after a shower or bath. I wonder if you could even add some to your bath water?
Virgin Skin Youth Serum
I’m blown away at just how many good ingredients are in this one product, which seems to be a theme for Crave Skincare products. To name just a few, tremella mushroom to hydrate better than hyaluronic acid, goji berry, probiotics, licorice root to brighten, sodium PCA, naiacinamide, pullulan to firm. I mean, geesh. I feel like I wouldn’t be surprised if “infant baby magic” were listed in this too but don’t worry, it’s not.
Rebel-C Antioxidant Serum
A solid vitamin C serum is something pretty much anyone can benefit from and should be using. I admit; I haven’t found one I love enough yet to do so. This one has promise with it’s lightweight texture, ferulic acid and quercetin, probiotic, and edelweiss (Sound of Music plays in brain). I like the feel of this and firming effect.
40 Winks Firming Eye Serum
Let’s get this out of the way. I have no idea why it’s 40 winks. Why not 50? Why not 100? I seriously might email Janet at Crave Skincare to ask because I can’t sleep without knowing. Speaking of not sleeping, if you have puffy eyes, the caffeine in this should help. It also contains tremella mushroom to hydrate as well as goji berry, green tea, resveratrol, sea kelp, algae, apple extract and more. I prefer a cream consistency for my eye treatments but I’ve enjoyed switching it up with this lightweight serum. Just make sure not to apply too much as it could flake away under makeup.
I’ve noticed my skin looking really good lately. I have less redness, no breakouts and an overall glow that I am not about to argue with. I’ve honestly just had such a good experience with these products.
While I truly did love all of the Crave products, there are several that I would definitely purchase full size versions of.
I want to grab the Virgin Skin Youth Serum, Salvation Oil and Glo-Berry Oil for sure.
Any duds in the bunch?
No, no duds. I simply wouldn’t purchase the body oil and oil cleanser at this time because I don’t need either one right now. I have an oil cleanser I’m currently using and liking but wouldn’t be opposed to switching to Crave once I finish it.
I admit; I’m not great about moisturizing my body after showers and baths but probably should get into that habit come fall/winter here. I usually would reach for a body butter over an oil though.
Do I recommend Crave Skincare?
Oh, absolutely. If you’re on the fence at all, just get one of the sample packs and you’ll see what I mean. I don’t remember the last time my skin seemed so happy and well adjusted to a skincare line. My skin really likes Crave and I’m going to keep giving it what it likes so we can be one big happy family.
For the quality of ingredients, the price point also feels very modest to me. I’d love to see more from Crave in the future, possibly a body scrub, bath bomb or lip balm.
