Good Gracious Green Dry Skin CBD Balm Review
Considering how my hands are constantly subjected to a cycle of hand wash and hand sanitiser at the moment (as I'm sure yours are too) the opportunity to try a CBD balm specifically for dry skin was very much appreciated.
The first thing you notice about this balm is the the colour! It's a beautiful dark green and you can just tell that it's chockablock full of lovely natural goodness. In terms of ingredients, this balm contains 375mg of raw full spectrum CBD extract, a mixture of hydrating butters and oil such as cocoa and shea, baobab and sunflower (which have been infused with calendula and St. John's Wort) as well as a wide range of essential oils like rosemary, lavender and tea tree.
Quite frankly, it's a treasure trove of soothing and hydration.
As I said at the beginning, I primarily used this balm to soothe my cracked knuckles (thanks COVID) as well as my dry elbows which always seems to be a weak spot in the colder months. Upon application I immediately felt the tightness in my skin ease and the raw pain of my cracked skin was eased instantly. After I had applied this over a few days, the redness of my knuckles had definitely reduced and as a result it didn't burn to apply anti-bacterial hand gel. My elbows also mirrored this, with them noticeably being softer, smoother and less sensitive to touch.
Now, GGG do warn that this balm could stain and upon first applying it, I can see why. That beautiful green colour turns your skin the colour of Shrek but luckily it doesn't last! You just have to make sure that you really rub it in and let it settle before letting your clothing sit back on your skin. With that in mind, I didn't really find it an issue as I always give any CBD topicals 5 minutes to sink in anyway but I think it's worth mentioning.
Would I use this again? Absolutely.
Good Gracious Green Dry CBD Balm is £35 for a 30ml tin (or £6 for a sample 5ml tin).
