For the past couple weeks I've been testing out some of the products from BuyMellow.
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 legalization happening 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 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 is one of them. One really cool part that they have on site is the comparison of all their different CBD oils.
I only took a screen shot of the top half, but if you scroll down the page on site it gives you more details on each one. They are missing the 2400mg Full Spectrum in this shot that they recently released, but you can check that out on the product page.
They are one Canadian CBD 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.
What to expect when placing an order with BuyMellow
Mellow makes ordering CBD easy, and they accept credit cards or E-transfer as payment.
BuyMellow ships express post to anywhere in Canada through Canada Post, and shipping time is extremely fast.
The sample pack I got to review arrived in 3 days, which is the standard delivery time for this company.
Shipping is free over $120, with shipping costs under that being $10 express post to most of Canada, with cost a little higher if you are way east or north.
My experience with CBD oil
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 in my skin 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 has an incredible skin care line to get you started(more on these further down!), with more products in this line coming soon.
My experience with BuyMellow
BuyMellow has several different options for oils/tinctures, and a number of other CBD products on site.
For a long time they only offered Broad Spectrum, which means that they were all THC free.
They have since expanded their line to include Full Spectrum oils, which is awesome to see.
Here are all of the CBD products I've tried from them.
Mellow Oil Purity PLUS CBD Tincture Blend
The one thing I love about Mellow is that their prices are 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.
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 a lot better than the previous Broad Spectrum oil that I tried. A little quality can make a big 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.
Mellow Oil Full Spectrum CBD Tincture
The flavor of this one compared to the broad spectrum tincture I had tried previously was a lot stronger.
There is definitely more of that marijuana-ish flavor that tends to go along with full spectrum oils and tinctures, but not in a bad way. It is still a mild taste, and doesn't leave any bad aftertaste.
I liked the broad spectrum, but I could definitely tell the difference when I started taking the full spectrum. The effects were noticeable within 10-15 minutes, and lasted quite awhile.
Using both this and the full spectrum pain relief stick did wonders for my stiff back, and I much prefer the full spectrum for anxiety(some disagree and say they prefer THC free for anxiety, this is always been what works best for me).
You can order the Full Spectrum tinctures all the way up to 2400mg.
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, as I can't justify spending the money to use one for every soak.
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!
Mellow Full Spectrum EXTRA Strength CBD Relief Stick
From the color of this I was expecting it to smell how the full spectrum CBD oil tastes, but that wasn't the case.
If you've ever used a product like Icy Hot, you'll know the kind of menthol smell that it brings, which is what this smells like.
The stick glides on smooth, and rubs in very easily. It has a cold feeling effect from the menthol, and absorbs in nicely, not leaving a lot of greasy residue that some topicals can.
The product is arnica infused, with beeswax, menthol, wintergreen oil, and cajuput
This was great to use after a long night of work, and really helped in easing the pain in my lower back.
There is one other product on the site like this as well that is 400mg instead of 650mg.
Mellow Topical Healing CBD Salve
The best way that I can describe the scent of this is citrus, though that isn't quite it. I can say that it smells great though!
This was one product that I tried on the eczema on my hands. This topical salve is very moisturizing, I did find it to be a little on the greasy side, though not so bad as to have to remove it.
The description of it is as a topical healing salve, that soothes cuts, burns, and skin.
I can't speak to any cuts or burns as I didn't have any, but it was really nice on the patches of dry skin that I put them on.
Ingredients include organic shea butter, beeswax, comfrey, plantain, marigold, Oregon grape, lavender, bergamot, juniper, myrrh, and cajuput.
The only thing that I wasn't a big fan of was the container. It might just be me, but I always have issues with not being able to get the lid off with these types of jars.
Besides that, it was a really nice product with a great scent.
Mellow Purity Sublingual CBD Spray
***This product has been discontinued***
This oral sublingual spray is meant to be taken as you would a normal CBD oil or tincture, but you spray it under your tongue instead of using a dropper.
The spray tastes good, of peppermint, and very mild. It had a slight aftertaste to it, but I always find this with any kind of mint extract (peppermint gives me heartburn too, but the flavor was mild enough to avoid this).
While the product is super convenient, and delivers 5mg of CBD per spray, this is only one I would get again with a few changes.
One, if there was a full spectrum option instead of just the THC free version. Two, if it contained more than 330mg of CBD.
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 a little goes a LONG way, so you are really getting your money's worth.
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.
All awesome things that you want to put on your face!
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 of my problem areas.
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.
This 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.
Overall thoughts on BuyMellow
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.
Couple this with their affordable pricing puts this company high on my list.
BuyMellow 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
- Topical CBD relief gel
- CBD Isolate powder
- Transdermal CBD patches
- CBD capsules
- Pet CBD
The company 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.
I highly recommend!
