Hi! It’s Lindsey from the Sow Eden team –– part time CBD dealer, full time skin care junkie.

Almost as far back as I can remember, I have been totally obsessed with skincare and trying different beauty products. You name it, I have probably tried it, and I most definitely have an opinion on it. With so many choices out there, it’s hard to know what exactly to try, or what will even work. But allow me to introduce you to BLOOM, my new skincare bff, and hopefully yours, too.

Bloom is the newest addition to our premium CBD product line. It is a superfood facial oil serum that contains a proprietary blend of essential fatty acid-rich and vitamin packed plant-derived oils including Rose Hip, Jojoba, and Sweet Almond. Bloom is also naturally fragranced with the intoxicating scent of Rose Geranium. If you’ve never had the pleasure of smelling scented Geranium before, it’s a must! By the way, each bottle of Bloom contains 15 mL (0.5 fl oz) with 300 mg active CBD. This tiny bottle is packed with anti-oxidants!

Bloom’s power trio of superfood oils are rich in anti-oxidants, vitamin C, trans-retinoic acid (‘retinol’), the natural form of Vitamin A, beta-Carotene, and essential fatty acids that nourish and repair the skin.

Ok, so I know what you are thinking: “I don’t need this.” YES, YES, YES YOU DO! While CBD has amazing benefits taken internally or sublingually, research has shown it can also play a very important role as a topical (for your skin). Not only are we talking about pain relief, we are talking wrinkles, fine lines, hyper pigmentation, rosacea, acne, and much, much more.

Scented Geraniums,  Pelargonium graveolens,  are much more fragrant than regular Geranium varieties. According to aromatherapists, the smell of Rose Geranium promotes emotional wellness.

Starting to reconsider? Good. When Jacob first proposed the idea of a facial product, I honestly thought, “nope, not for me!” I have my highly curated beauty arsenal that I spent years creating. The order of my operations was top notch and I wasn’t looking for any new additions to my skincare regimen. How could anything compare to my beloved potions I spent hours on-end researching? In my mind, it wasn’t possible.

It wasn’t until BLOOM was in the testing phase and Jacob insisted I add it into my routine that I fell in love with it. I woke up to amazing, glowing, hydrated, dewy skin. Doing a double-take in the mirror, I literally thought to myself, “he freaking did it!” My boyfriend, someone who couldn’t even stand to step foot in Sephora, let alone know the difference between a toner and cleanser, beat the skincare game. He gave me an organic skincare product that I spent years trying to find –– an all-in-one skincare game changer. Now Jacob’s favorite part of all of this: the “I told you so.” And so that was that. Bloom was now a member of the Lindsey skincare tribe.

By this point, you know skin is something I take very seriously. Morning and night I spend time looking at my beauty cabinet, carefully choosing what products will be put on my face and in what order. Should I mask today? Exfoliate? The opportunities are endless. All my products are screaming “pick me! Pick me!” But one thing is for certain: Bloom makes the cut every time.

If you’re looking for a “suggested use,” Bloom can be applied morning, night, or both. Whatever floats your skincare boat. And for all my oily girls reading this - yep, it’s for you, too. Bloom works for all skin types. A few drops onto freshly cleansed skin is my favorite way to apply it. Adding in a nice cold jade roller to the mix is a great way to pamper yourself. Overall, the product goes on smoothly and quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving behind a fresh, glowy mug. FYI - a little goes a long way, so start small. Just a few drops is enough for your entire face. And for my gals on the go who don’t have time to lovingly gaze at their skincare products every morning before they make a decision (or is it just me?), you can add Bloom to you favorite moisturizer as a boost for a one-stop shop. It sits well under makeup for daytime use and provides a nice base for your thicker moisturizers and creams for nighttime. 

Pro tip: rub any excess onto your hands, chest, and neck! 

If you’re still left wondering why you should spend your hard earned money on something for your face, maybe we just can’t be friends. Just kidding! But please, invest in your skincare and you will be forever 21.  Or 28, in my case.  Sun damage, scarring, hyper-pigmentation, etc., are all things that age us. And let me tell you, Botox and filler can only do so much. MAJOR NEWSFLASH: the damage is already done to your skin! With the help of CBD’s anti-oxidant magical powers, Bloom can help prevent and even reverse some of the major signs of aging.  Beautiful skin starts with your skincare regimen.  Give it a try.  What do you have to lose?

I would love to answer any questions you guys have about implementing CBD into your skincare regimen.  Leave them in the comments below!
