Chantecaille’s debut CBD product is a ultra-rich, luxurious cream that blends 300 milligrams per jar of broad-spectrum cannabidiol oil with powerful botanicals specifically for their ability to nourish, moisturize and cocoon dry skin. Packed with phytonutrients and antioxidant properties, CBD is paired with eggplant stem cell and cannabis sativa stem cell to visibly soothe redness and relieve skin from discomfort along with cherimoya extract, derived from a South American superfruit, to give the skin an extra calming effect. $125, chantecaille.com

Luxury CBD Face Cream
As “exceptionally discerning consumers” themselves in pursuit of a CBD-forward face cream that didn’t sacrifice luxury or efficacy, New York City-based founders Audrey Kirdar and Tracy Wydra started WINNØW in 2021. By working with best-in-class chemists, their first release is a silky, fast-absorbing daily moisturizer that delivers the complexion enhancers we all crave: hydration, brightness and clarity. It’s also one of the rare face products to pair CBD with a blend of fellow hero ingredients like hyaluronic and amino acids (to boost elasticity and reduce redness), niacinamide (a water-soluble form of B3 which helps reverse signs of aging) and shea butter (a natural emollient and antioxidant). $85, winnowskincare.com
