CBD skincare is the new overwhelming trend. I get dozens of emails a week to review some new anti-aging CBD products. A few I accept and most I decline, from the few I do decide to try, I usually send most back. CBD skin care can at best drastically reduce inflammation and worst break me out or do absolutely NOTHING! There is a small handful I recommend.
HOUSE OF GRŌ® is one! When they reached out I almost passed but after reviewing their website I was intrigued.
House of GRO
What I like:
- they started small with a serum and an oil
- well thought out ingredients
- anti-inflammatory based oils
- nice scent profile
- transparency on ingredients and percentages
- gorgeous textures
- great and simple packaging
- easy to use
- can blend into any skincare routine
What is it?
HOUSE OF GRŌ® makes two products a face oil and night serum. I layered both products morning and night for about three weeks. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the oil. It absorbs well, leaves a glow, smells amazing, and did not break me out! I felt my breakouts were actually lower while using the oil. The texture is what I really like about the product. It has a nice slip so gua sha work or facial massage are totally possible. By the time my massage ritual was done the oil was fully absorbed and didn’t leave a residue or pilling.
Who Needs It?
For this duo, I think over the age of 25 and more on the dry side. While CBD is anti-inflammatory and can help with breakouts, the formulas together can be heavy. 25 and under or more on the oily side– stick to the oil. It leaves a gorgeous GLOW and was soothing each night. I was using a heavy retinol protocol while I used the oil and felt like my acclimation period to vitamin A was easier with the oil.
I hope HOUSE OF GRŌ® makes a cleansing oil or balm in the future. The brand does texture very well and the results were exactly what I wanted in an oil. The oil is so gorgeous I hope to use it in my facials when we reopen next month!
