We are back again for another CBD oil review. For the past couple weeks I’ve been testing out some products from BuyMellow.com.
Buy Mellow is a 100% Canadian CBD company that is based out of Vancouver BC. For those of you who don’t know about the regulations here in Canada, or the recent things that have been going on in the industry, it has been extremely difficult to import CBD into Canada as of late.
A lot of the big names have discontinued shipping here, and pulled out of the Canadian market, which has left us up here in Canada searching for great CBD oils within the country.
With the legalization of marijuana last year, I was really disappointed in the CBD market here once I started to search within Canada. When I first started out with CBD about a year ago I went online and looked up reviews, which led me to a lot of really great products, all from the US. It was really strange to not find the same quality and variety here.
Fortunately there are a few hidden gems that I’ve come across, and BuyMellow.com is one of them.
Mellow offers Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and CBD Isolate products, so no matter which one fits your situation, they have something for you. They are one company that is growing and expanding in the skin care side of CBD as well, and I couldn’t be more excited about this part.
I started using facial CBD skin care products in January of this year. As someone who is approaching their mid-thirties(yikes!), I’m naturally starting to show a little wear and tear in my face. Thankfully not too much, there must be some good genes floating around in there!
I’d already been taking CBD for awhile before I started using CBD skin care products, so I knew all about the anti-aging and antioxidant properties of it. For those of you who don’t, you definitely need to check this out.
Since starting it, there have been some major improvements in my skin. I’ve always had combination skin, which means I get the best of two equally terrible worlds. Very oily skin, while being very dry at the same time, and toss a little eczema in there for good measure. For anyone who hasn’t experienced this weird combination, just be thankful.
Some things I’ve noticed since introducing CBD orally and topically:
- I’m way less oily, especially around the T-Zone. I’ve gone from blotting and powdering several(8-10) times in a shift to maybe 3.
- My skin stays moisturized for longer, and I can actually wear matte make-up now to combat what oil still remains.
- The fine lines around my eyes have DEFINITELY been reduced. This was one area that I was really starting to see the signs of age in, and to see improvement in this area was huge for me.
- I don’t have to exfoliate as often. Before I started a CBD skin care regime, I was exfoliating on a daily basis to try to combat the dryness and inevitable flaky skin that comes along with it. Now I’m down to 2-3 times a week.
Whatever it’s doing in there, it can keep on doing it, and BuyMellow.com has an incredible skin care line to get you started(more on these further down!), with more products in this line coming soon.
Mellow makes ordering CBD easy, and unlike a lot of other Canadian CBD companies, offers a credit card as a method of payment. Most only offer e-transfer or bitcoin as payment, and having this option is a huge bonus.
The layout of the site is simple, and they strive to make it understandable for everyone. There’s nothing worse than going to a site and having it unreadable or difficult to find what you’re looking for.
Another great thing about Mellow is the fact that they offer a 30-day money back satisfaction guarantee. Mellow wants you to be happy with the items you’re ordering, and they go above and beyond to provide only the best Canadian CBD products. If you’re not satisfied with the products for any reason, just return them within 30 days to receive a full refund.
BuyMellow ships express post to anywhere in Canada, and shipping time is extremely fast. The sample pack I was sent to review arrived in 3 days, which is the standard delivery time for this company. They are also one of the most affordable Canadian CBD companies that I’ve come across.
Shipping costs are $10 express post to most of Canada, with cost a little higher if you are way east or north.
Ok, so now that we have the basic details of the company down, let’s check out their products!
Here’s what I ordered from BuyMellow to review:
BuyMellow.com has several options for oils/tinctures. Up until recently they only offered Broad spectrum products, which means that they were all THC free. They have now expanded their line to include Full Spectrum oils, which is awesome to see.
The oil that I tried from them was a blend of Isolate and Broad Spectrum CBD, and was the second CBD oil that I’ve tried that has had zero THC in it.
Mellow Oil Purity PLUS CBD Tincture Blend
- MCT oil, Broad Spectrum CBD oil, and CBD Isolate blend
- 1200mg of CBD in a 1 ounce(30ml) bottle
- Flavor is very mild, has hints of chocolate, mint, and coffee. Definitely one of the more tasty oils I’ve tried!
- Every dropper contains 40mg of CBD
The one thing I love about Mellow is that their prices are very competitive. Everything that they have to offer on their site is very affordable. The Broad Spectrum oils, along with the CBD Isolate, will always be cheaper than the Full Spectrum options, due to not having any THC in them.
The first Broad Spectrum CBD oil that I tried from another company was some time ago, and was not very effective at all. If you want to read up on the different kinds of CBD that you can get, check out this post here. I was pretty disappointed as it was one of my first experiences with CBD, and after everything I’d been hearing about CBD, I really expected more.
I was, naturally, pretty apprehensive when I got this in the mail, and was expecting similar results from my experience before.
Well, I’m happy to report that this one worked WAY better than the previous Broad Spectrum oil that I tried. A little quality can make a HUGE difference.
Within 15 minutes I was starting to get relief from it, and it has definitely opened me up to trying out more Broad Spectrum options. I still personally prefer the Full Spectrum oils, but for anyone who can’t have any THC in their system, this is a great option.
I didn’t try this one on my skin because of the added flavor in it. Anyone who is looking to use this for any skin issues(eczema, psoriasis, etc), should go with completely unflavored oil, as it may irritate the skin further.
Here are some of the other CBD oils that they have available.
Mellow Oil Purity CBD Tincture
- MCT oil and CBD Isolate
- Mild taste
- THC free
- 600mg/30ml bottle – $29.99
- 1000mg/30ml bottle – $39.99
Mellow Full Spectrum CBD Tincture
- Blend of hemp seed oil and MCT oil
- Full Spectrum, whole plant extract
- 600mg/30ml bottle – $59.99
- 1200mg/30ml bottle – $119.99
On to the next product up for review today… the bath bomb!
Love Mellow Simplicity CBD Bath Bomb
Bath bombs have been around for some time now, and despite their popularity I have had yet to try one out. With the busy lifestyle I lead, I don’t often have time to just sit around chilling in the tub so that’s probably why it has taken me this long to give one a shot.
Well, let me tell you, I am hooked!
I had an extremely busy night at work, and my entire body was so sore by the time I got home. I decided to give it a go and see if it would help a bit with the aches and pains. Running around a busy restaurant for 9 hours can really put a strain on the body, and this was the perfect opportunity to test it out.
Seriously, why haven’t I done this before!!! The smell was great, my body felt way better after I got out, my skin was super soft, and I slept like a rock that night. I generally wake up the morning after nights like these and can barely roll out of bed but I felt great the next day.
This one will definitely be saved as more of a treat for me when I’m feeling really sore, but if you haven’t tried one yet, do yourself and your body a favor and give it a whirl. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
Their bath bomb comes packed with 50mg of CBD, and all natural essential oils and ingredients. You can pick one up on BuyMellow.com for $15, but they often have sales that will drop it down a few bucks.
Next up and one of my favorites from them, the skin care products!!!
LoveMellow Skin Care Line
So there are several products in the line, and I got to try out three of them. I was extremely impressed not only by the quality of the products, but also the ingredients in them.
The skin is the body’s largest organ, and contains numerous cannabinoid receptors. By taking CBD orally and using it topically, you’re getting the benefits from it inside and out.
For anyone who is looking to give their skin an all natural CBD boost, BuyMellow is one company that really delivers in this area.
LoveMellow CBD Eye Serum
So this product comes in a 10ml roll on bottle, and contains 50mg of CBD, along with some other awesome ingredients that are great for your skin. Some highlights of the ingredients used are frankincense, evening primrose, beta-carotene, and Vitamin E, among others. All natural and all very moisturizing!
The area under my eyes sucks. Like it just does. As I get older the skin underneath them gets thinner and thinner, and dries out way more easily than when I was younger. I could tell a difference in the skin there the morning after I tried it for the first time, and it has only gotten better since then. This is a big plus, considering I’ve been using CBD facial skin care products for awhile now.
This isn’t a product that I would wear under makeup, I would recommend just using it at night before bed, because it is quite oily. This is also a product that goes a LONG way, and will last a long time, so you are really getting your money’s worth. You can pick this up from BuyMellow for $32.
LoveMellow CBD Blemish Blend
Another awesome product from them is this roll on blemish blend. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not just for breakouts! The ingredients in here, which include witch hazel, aloe, bergamot, and cedar wood, are all designed to help relieve inflammation, stop bacteria in its tracks, and are great anti-oxidants.
I don’t really struggle with breakouts very often, but do have pretty uneven skin tone, large pores, etc. This product has made a noticeable difference in a few different areas.
All great things that you want to put on your face, you can pick this 10ml, 50mg CBD roll on bottle from BuyMellow for $32. Just like the under eye serum from them, a little goes a long way!
LoveMellow Peppermint CBD Lip Balm
I love lip chap. What I don’t like is searching for good lip chap. I can’t even begin to describe how many I’ve bought just to get them home and be super disappointed in the texture. The CBD lip chap is very soothing, has a great scent and taste, and isn’t sticky at all.
At $12 a pop, it may be a little pricey for some, but as I mentioned above, the products go on sale regularly. There is 12.5mg of CBD in the 4.4ml container.
Love Mellow CBD Face Cream
This is one product in the facial line that I didn’t get to try, because it hadn’t been released yet. As soon as I order some, I’ll update the review on how it is!
The face cream comes in a 30ml jar, and contains 100mg of CBD. With a great list of ingredients that you can check out on their site, I’m sure I’ll be just as impressed as I was with the other products.
LOA OIL All-Purpose Moisturizer
This is another product I have yet to try out from their skin care line, and it comes in two sizes. An all-purpose moisturizer that includes hemp and other essential oils, you can use this anywhere on your body, including your face.
The details on the ingredients can be found on their site, and all of their products are always vegan and cruelty-free.
The 50ml bottle is $39, and the 100ml bottle is $59.
So those were the ones that I’ve tried so far, and I have to tell you, I think this is going to be my go to for CBD oil and skin care products in Canada from now on. BuyMellow.com has all the testing required to ensure you are getting a safe, quality product every time, and they back it up with a 30-day money back guarantee if you aren’t satisfied(you will be!)
They also test for terpenes in their CBD oils, which is awesome. If you don’t know much about terpenes, or the health benefits they boast, check out this post here!
They also have a number of other products that you can check out on their site:
- Lavender or Vanilla CBD bar soap – $10
- Topical CBD relief gel – $49.99
- Topical CBD salve – $39.99
- Topical CBD pain relief stick – $49.99
- CBD Isolate powder – starting at $26
- Transdermal CBD patches – starting at $5.99
- CBD capsules – $89.99
- Pet CBD – $36.99
BuyMellow.com has been really awesome to deal with so far, and they get a five star rating for their excellent customer service.
They also offer wholesale options for anyone who owns a business, and would like to become a retailer and sell their products in shop. The form is located on their website for anyone who is interested.
