Annmarie Skin Care Activated CBD Serum Facial Complex Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

I do not use a lot of CBD skincare products, but I was drawn to the Annmarie  Skin Care Activated CBD Serum Facial Complex because they asserted that this serum gently alleviates, "that patch of temporary discomfort on your skin" and that it "rejuvenates your skin to a youthful glow." When my skin is irritated by the cold weather, or by skincare products that cause my skin to react, a little patch of dry and peeling skin will appear on my chin. I recently experienced this dry and flaky patch of skin from skincare products that I tried, that didn't agree with my skin, and I started using this serum to see if it would heal my inflammation and peeling. Thankfully, it worked, just as its claims suggested. It is a lightweight, and fast absorbing oil, that melts into the skin quickly, and leaves it soft, hydrated, smooth and luminous. This antioxidant-rich serum has the consistency of a high quality face oil, and a pleasant clean and herbal aroma. While it has trace amounts of THC, it is non-intoxicating– just as Annmarie Skin Care suggests. My dry patches were calmed and healed within a week of use, and I am quite happy with the results. 

About Annemarie Skin Care and Ojai Energetics,

Annmarie Skin Care and Ojai Energetics officially launched the new Activated CBD Serum. A product born out of Ojai Energetics’ fast-acting CBD tech and Annmarie Skin Care’s signature wildcrafted and organic ingredients. Annmarie Skin Care naturally formulates the wildcrafted serum with a unique 3-step, proprietary energized botanical infusion process to support healthy skin. It is packed with high-performance seed oils, antioxidant-rich botanicals, and synergistic plant stem cells that provide active, supernaturally-effective skin care that will leave skin balanced and visibly toner. This new serum will also bolster your skin's natural defenses over time—leaving you looking ageless. 

Annmarie Skin Care was founded by Annmarie and Kevin Gianni, healthy living bloggers and hosts of The Renegade Health Show, a popular YouTube videocast. Annmarie and Kevin traveled across North and South America for two and a half years, posting interviews with healthcare experts, manufacturers, growers, and healers to find the best natural-care products and protocols. 

When their viewers started asking what products they use for their skin, Annmarie and Kevin were horrified to discover nothing that the brand used met their high standards. As a result, the couple set out to create a clean skin care line free of toxic chemicals, and Annmarie Skin Care was born in 2009.

Annmarie Skin Care’s search led them to Ojai Energetics and its certified organic water-soluble CBD formulation, unmatched for its speed of absorption and efficacy.

Ojai Energetics had the technology to create the kind of CBD-based skin care product Annmarie Skin Care wanted.  Ojai Energetics water-soluble CBD is pure, certified organic, fully bioavailable, and contains vital nutrients with no synthetic fillers—perfect for a serum. 

Annmarie Skin Care is a brand committed to bringing high-quality, pure skin care made with organic ingredients with a clean and conscious approach. Ojai Energetics perfectly aligns with these core values and shares the same enthusiasm for delivering organic products to its customers. Thus, the birth of the new Activated CBD Serum full-spectrum cannabidiol facial complex.

According to Annmarie Skin Care,

The serum is made with a hemp extract high in naturally-occurring full-spectrum cannabidiol. But of all the natural ingredients out there, why CBD? 

This product is a powerful CBD full of antioxidant properties for the body and we love using it for skin in the same way—making it a great anti-aging ally in staving off the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. CBD is also effective in balancing the skin, which can make it ideal for oily and combination skin types.

This luxurious and activated emulsion brightens, hydrates, tightens and rejuvenates dull and aging skin. By utilizing both water-soluble and fat-soluble hemp-derived full spectrum CBD, this potent and concentrated serum provides immediate benefits with long lasting effects. Utilizing a colloidal method delivery system allows for increased absorption and bioavailability of CBD to the skin.

Antioxidant-rich superoxide dismutase (SOD) and astaxanthin help protect against environmental stressors, while Abyssinian, mangosteen, copaiba and black cumin seed oils deeply nourish the skin. Formulated with an aloe-herb infusion to calm and soothe, and combined with hyaluronic acid and tremella extract, this serum helps to keep the skin hydrated, plump and glowing for ultimately radiant skin.

A little bit goes a long way. You apply this to your skin, genuinely excited about the benefits you're seeing and what's to come. A distinctly unique CBD skin care product, you feel the beautifying results on multiple fronts. On one level, you experience the physical sensations of the actual ritual, feeling the slick texture of this hydrating serum cooling the skin; on a more microscopic level, the water-soluble CBD absorbs evenly into the skin and the fat-soluble CBD nourishes the surface. You feel the Activated CBD Serum gently alleviating that patch of temporary discomfort on your skin and rejuvenating your skin to a youthful glow. And you know your skin's protected from the environmental stressors once you enter the busy world outside.

  1. I haven't seen Annmarie products in years. I used it when I first started blogging. This new addition sounds nice.

    1. I really like this serum, and their collaboration with Ojai Energetics certainly seems to have been successful, Marcia!
