Lord Jones Pain and Wellness Pure CBD Body Lotion, $50
Lord Jones is known for their killer packaging and potent THC gummies (which, speaking from experience, holy wow), but their lotion deserves a cult-following of its own. Touted as an anti-inflammatory sunburn soother, I coated my sore, rosy shoulders with it after an August afternoon sans sunscreen (I forgot, so judge me), and while I wouldn’t say it made my burn dissipate faster—sorry, only time can do that—my skin did feel significantly less tender, to the point where I could slide on tight bra straps without feeling that intense post-burn stinging. Basically, I’m keeping this on hand for literally anytime my skin feels itchy, sore, or irritated, which, thanks to the impending winter, will be often.
Overall, I wouldn’t say that CBD beauty products changed my life, but they definitely made my routine more fun, and way more soothing. To feel legitimate pain-soothing effects without downing Advil or slathering on Bengay was kind of awesome, especially when you realize there are practically zero downsides.
