With National Grooming Day behind us, I'm hoping that every single guy out there has learnt a little bit more about what products to try when looking after your skin. I've put together a list of all of my men's grooming essentials from skincare to shaving, so if you haven't read it yet, do so as there are some amazing products that you should try. However this week I've been made aware of a new men's skincare collection named CBx by Perricone MD. An interesting launch because it is a completely new concept and formulation using phytocannabinoids, which is naturally-derived from the hemp plant. Interested?
But what the hell are phytocannabinoids and why are they good for your skin when used in the Perricone MD formulation?
Phytocannabinoids are naturally derived aforementioned from cannabis sativa and they are known to visibly calm irritation, soothe dry complexions, bring balance to oil-prone skin and promote moisture-retention. Phytocannabinoids are non-psychoactive cannabinoids and have no recreational use. The Perricone MD phytocannabinoids are extracted from the mature stalk of the hemp plant, are prized for their powerful antioxidant properties and have been used to address a variety conditions such as chronic pain and sleeplessness as well as skin conditions such as acne.
Phytocannabinoids deliver impressive antioxidant benefits which help stressed, oil-prone skin feel soothed, healthy and refreshed. Most men would benefit immensely from these products if you suffer from the result of prolonged shaving, irritation and continued exposure to the elements.
The 3 products in their range are the CBx for Men Super Clean Face Wash, Soothing Post-Shave Treatment and the Lightweight Moisturizer.
CBx for Men Super Clean Face Wash | 150ml for £29
This product initially appears gel like but soon turns into a soothing, foamy face wash. Use sparingly as I've found that only a small fingertip amount is required to cover your face due to the heavy foam application. The product cleanses dry skin and softens your stubble pre-shave and works on all skin types.
CBx for Men Soothing Post-Shave Treatment | 118ml for £39
This soothing post-shave treatment gets applied to the skin much like many other post shaving creams I have tried. You need to use generously and straight after shaving to make the most of the cooling, calming feeling.
CBx for Men Lightweight Moisturizer | 59ml for £49
Use the moisturiser as the last step of your daily skincare treatments. This will give a final hydration to the top layers of your skin whilst minimising the appearance of fine lines and also evens your skin tone. This product is fast absorbing because it's a light moisturiser and will not leave your skin feeling oily.
