I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company.
Everyone knows I'm not a sucker for natural products. Having had a lot of that pushed on me as a child in lieu of treatment proven to work has given me some trepidation on all that stuff. Still, there is so much to be said for items that help us cope.
For me, the CBD oil containing lotions from The Fay Farm are some of the most helpful things I've ever found. I've already reviewed a few of the products they sell - their Healing Hemp lotion and their Serenity lotion which both have CBD oil. When the opportunity came up to review their Rejuvenation lotion, I was ecstatic.
This lotion is made with organic ingredients such as Purified water, hemp oil, grape seed oil, apricot kernel oil, emulsifying wax, stearic acid, argan oil, magnesium, white sesame oil, jojoba oil, essential oils, 200 mg. CBD oil, fennel, licorice, turmeric, valerian, gluconolactone and sodium benzoate (certified organic preservative).
It smells fantastic. It seems to be appreciated more around the house by guinea pig or human more than even the other Fay Farm lotions I have. The mixture of different oils and ingredients make this a unique smelling lotion that just cannot be recreated from any other store-bought stuff. It's a gentle smell that I can handle even during the worst migraines. It also smells a heck of a lot better than any other thing I've ever put on a sunburn.
Oh yeah, the sunburn thing.
You might recall that, back at the beginning of February, I took a friendship trip to Mexico with my best friend from college. It was very lovely and full of me making decisions that didn't necessarily keep my health in mind, like not doing enough sunscreen.
I got one of the worst sunburns I have ever had. When I got home, all I could do was sleep on the couch, wear a blanket, and lotion lotion lotion every five minutes.
When I pulled out my Rejuvenation lotion, I figured that this would sting my sunburn and that I would still have to apply the lotion really frequently.
I was so happy to be wrong!
It wasn't like using aloe vera gel where I stick to everything for days and it definitely wasn't like greasy lotions that make me slip on the bathroom floor.
Rejuvenation is soft and gentle on even the most painful - and scarred - sunburned skin. It also absorbs really quickly into the skin and does an amazing job actually bringing moisture to the area.
This lotion saved my skin.
I'm really tan for me, especially in March in Wisconsin. I don't have any scarring or scabbing leftover from my sunburn which, six weeks later, is usually somewhat common for me given the severity of this burn.
The only reason that my skin healed up as quickly and as nicely as it has is this lotion. Instead of scars, I have these gorgeous freckles like I used to have all over when I was younger.
Rejuvenation is definitely a part of my warm weather survival kit. Want to add it to yours? Visit The Fay Farm - and be sure to use the code 'chronic' to get free shipping (for US customers only)!
