Our video blogger Jessica reviewed three different products from Inesscents CBD: CBD Salvation Hot Freeze Skin Salve, CBD Salvation Balance Beauty Serum, and their just released Colloidal Oatmeal & Lavender Soap.
Today I’m going to be reviewing some products from Inesscents.
Inesscents was one of the first organic body companies in the country, started in 2000.
Inesscents has a variety of body care products including skin care, soaps, and relief & recovery salves. All of their products have ingredients that are sustainably harvested, organic, and fair trade certified.
I have been testing these products out for about a month now and I gotta say, I’m impressed! Not only does the company have great business practices that I look for personally, such as ethically & sustainably sourced ingredients, but they have formulated some really wonderful things with some of my favorite ingredients such as hemp oil, calendula, arnica, chamomile, helichrysum, frankincense. Just so much good stuff.
Inesscents CBD Hot Freeze Skin Salve felt great on Jessica’s sore muscles.
I regularly use CBD topicals on my neck, shoulder, and back. I love topicals that have a cooling or warming sensation to them. The cooling effect is the most immediate and longest lasting. The cayenne in this gives it a nice subtle warming undertone that is really pleasant. I’ve been using this daily and it’s really nice and smells great too!
CBD SALVATION BALANCE BEAUTY SERUM
I use both jojoba and hemp oils regularly in my skin care routine, so I started using this daily. It has so many amazing ingredients in it that I have used in my skincare, so having them all in one product is a nice serum packed full of goodness. Hemp is non-comedogenic and won’t clog your pores. You’ll really notice how much your skin soaks it all up and how hydrating it is! The calendula and chamomile are extremely soothing, and tamanu oil helps combat redness. This serum has a nice light herbal aroma that’s not strong at all and doesn’t linger on your face.
CBD SALVATION COLLOIDAL OATMEAL & LAVENDER SOAP
I was really excited to try this soap out. I have some areas of my skin that are more sensitive so I try to use soaps that have ingredients that are calming. Not only is the hemp oil in this great for so many things like rashes and dry skin, but the colloidal oatmeal and lavender are both really soothing ingredients. The soap has a very light natural lavender fragrance. Not too strong and definitely not an unnatural fragrance, it doesn’t linger on the skin which is also nice!

cbdMD only uses top-quality ingredients, including Kentucky-grown hemp, adding peace-of-mind to your bath. Though smaller than traditional bath bombs, they make up for it with potent CBD oil and relaxing scents.

These CBD bath bombs dissolve quickly in warm bath water. The aromas present mildly and don’t come on too strong.

Since they have no artificial dyes or preservatives, cbdMD CBD bath bombs won’t stain your tub. These bath bombs use all-natural and safe coloring and aromas, allowing for a relaxing experience overall.
Our reviewer first tried cbdMD’s Relax CBD bath bomb, and it instantly lived up to its name. Packed with 100mg of organic full-spectrum hemp extract and infused with 100 percent pure therapeutic-grade lavender essential oils, it was easy for the day’s stress to melt away.

AVAILABLE IN MULTIPLE AROMAS, CBDMD OFFERS HIGH-QUALITY ORGANIC CBD
We were impressed, overall, with the quality and variety of this product. Coming in six different varieties (Resist, Romance, Rise, Restore, Rejuvenate, and Relax) we couldn’t wait to try more. cbdMD’s packaging is professional and lux. Each signature bath bomb arrives in its own box with clear labelling of both potency (100mg per bath bomb) and aroma (lavender, eucalpytus, frankincense, or blend).
We thought bath bombs alone were a treat, but that was before we found these. The premium CBD in each bath bomb allows for maximum relaxation through this luxury experience. These CBD bath bombs are well worth their price due to their high-grade, high-quality CBD. They’re even more of a steal when you consider their packs of 3 or 6 which reduce the price to $6-$8 per bath bomb.

Topical CBD is a great choice whether you’re dealing with chronic pain or just the aches and stiffness of everyday life.
CBD is an extract made from industrial hemp that can offer relief from pain and inflammation. With few side effects or drawbacks, CBD is seeing tremendous popularity today. While most commonly found in a tincture or capsule, an increasing number of brands offer CBD in a salve or cream designed to be applied directly to the skin.
Ministry of Hemp’s review team studied almost a dozen products to pick the best CBD topicals available online.
Quality matters, and there are few regulations governing the CBD industry. At Ministry of Hemp, we maintain the highest standards when it comes to CBD and hemp products. Read on to find out more about the benefits of CBD salves and creams, and to see our complete reviews of the best CBD topicals available online.
WHY DO PEOPLE USE TOPICAL CBD?
The main advantage of CBD in a topical form is that it can be applied directly to whatever part of the body needs help. Topical CBD products bypass the digestive system and can immediately go to work where they’re needed.
There’s a growing body of scientific evidence to support the use of topical CBD products to ease pain, inflammation, and the symptoms of arthritis. One study using rats found that topical CBD has “therapeutic potential for relief of arthritis pain-related behaviours and inflammation without evident side-effects.” More scientific research on humans is needed to confirm all of CBD’s benefits, but the initial research into topical use in humans is also promising.
Topical CBD products bypass the digestive system to go directly to work where they’re needed most.
Hemp and CBD oil are also increasingly popular skin care ingredients. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can reduce rashes and irritation in the skin just like it eases muscle aches and stiffness.
QUALITY MATTERS: HOW WE PICKED THE BEST CBD TOPICALS
For our review of the best CBD topicals available online, we focused only on companies which make third-party, independent lab results available to consumers. Lab results are available online, included in the order, or on request. It’s vitally important that consumers know exactly what products they’re consuming: how strong it is, and whether it has any impurities. We also focused on brands with fast, friendly customer service and easy to use websites.
We rated each brand on their price, strength, and the cost of shipping. We used our Editor in Chief’s address in central Texas to produce sample shipping costs for each product.
Topical CBD products are available in a variety of textures, with different added scents, essential oils, and herbal ingredients.
Our reviews also include the ingredients and a description of the scent and texture of each CBD topical. We tried to remain neutral in our descriptions of each product, since each consumer’s experience is subjective. These are all high-quality CBD creams, balms and salves, but you may find you prefer one scent over another. You might love or hate menthol. Some people prefer a light texture, while other buyers are looking for CBD topicals to use in a massage.
After careful review, we believe these are the best CBD topicals for sale online:
