What It Is
A CBD based body lotion full of high-caliber, skin-loving ingredients.
why it is special
Le Vesqueâ€™s signature ingredient, a high-quality Full-Spectrum CBD, works synergistically with other natural ingredients to make healthy, glowing skin. Â Le Vesque products contain only USA-grown CBD thatâ€™s C02 extracted and third-party tested. And it’s cruelty-free.
Full-spectrum CBD does not contain components to give a â€œhighâ€ or altered sensation. What it does have is natural beauty benefits, including the ability to relieve dry skin, eczema and psoriasis. 
Many CBD lotions have a hempy, masculine smell. We love Le Vesque CBD Luxe Body Lotion because it smells of invigorating grapefruit, not hemp!
In addition to a high-quality Full-Spectrum CBD, this lotion has an especially impressive combination of ingredients.
Â Ingredient Profile
Full Spectrum Hemp-Derived CBD Oil
Full Spectrum Hemp-Derived CBD Oil comes from theÂ Cannabis sativa plant. It contains skin-lovingÂ cannabidiol,Â cannabigerol and antioxidant compounds.Cannabidiol Oil isÂ high in Omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids. It is also high in Vitamins A, E, and D.

Algae breaks down with light exposure. Fortunately CBD Luxe Body Lotion comes in protective opaque packaging.
10-Hydroxydecanoic Acid is an extraction from a fatty acid in Royal Jelly.
Royal Jelly is what bees make for the Queen and queen larvae to eat. It is a white creamy substance containingÂ B vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes and minerals.
This anti-inflammatory anti-oxidant fights infections. Research shows royal jelly increases fibroblast action to promote wound healing.  It also healsÂ acne, scars, and scrapes.
Meanwhile, Royal Jelly has anti-aging properties and smooths the appearance of wrinkles. 
Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
Camellia Sinesis Leaf Extract is Green Tea.
Green tea contains polyphenols that soothe skin while providing antioxidants. Polyphenols may improve sun-damaged skin. Â It contains phenols to strengthen collagen and elastin.
Camellia Sinesis Leaf Extract also contains EGCG. Research shows EGCG enables the production of new cellsÂ in the epidermis and reactivates dying skin cells.Â  This shows promise for repairing sun damage and scar healing. Â  Â EGCG is a potent antioxidant. It protects against environmental damage and neutralizes free radicals that prematurely age skin.
As a topical ingredient, it evens the skin tone. It is anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and inflammation around the delicate eye area.
Simmondsia Chinesis is Jojoba Seed Oil.
It has a similar structure to sebum, replacing the natural oils which the skin needs to stay healthy. It regulates oily skin, removes impurities and flakes, reduces inflammation and soothes skin. Jojoba is soothing to the skin and softens wrinkles. Jojoba oil is an emollient, made of 98% monounsaturated fats.
Jojoba is a carrier oil, increasing the efficacy of other active ingredients.
Cetearyl Olivate is theÂ fatty acid of Olives combined with a Cetearyl alcohol ester.Â A very safe ingredient that emulsifies active ingredients together within a moisturizer. It is a natural alternative to PEG.
Cetearyl attracts and binds moisture.Â Cetearyl alcoholÂ is one of the â€œgoodâ€ alcohols that soften, soothe and heal dryÂ skin. It is an emollient.
Olive fatty acids contains Omegas 3 and 6, and polyphenols. PolyphenolsÂ are antioxidants that protect skin cells from oxidative damage.
Within a formulation it is not greasy like olive oil but retains the benefits.
The olive fatty acids give deep hydration, smooth skin and give the product a silky texture.
A combination of fatty acids from Olive Oil plus an ester of sugar. Olive Oil fatty acid contains theÂ highly emollient squalene. ItÂ also contains oleic and palmitic acids.
It contains Linoleic acid which has an anti-inflammatory effect. It hydrates skin to help stop wrinkle formation.
Olive fatty acids within a product base, such as this one, is superior because it gives olive benefits without the greasiness. It gives a product slip without being greasy or clogging pores.
Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter
A highly emoillent Itâ€™s rich in oleic acid (an omega-9 acid); and the saturated fatty acid stearic acid.
These moisturize, tighten, plump and firm the skin. It provides long-lasting moisture.
Mango is also rich in A & C to refine the skin.
Citrus Grandis, commonly known as Grapefruit Peel Oil, is high in collagen-producing Vitamin C.
It has antibacterial benefits and studies show it reduces acne.
As with other citrus oils, it is an antioxidant with an uplifting scent.
Vegetable-based Glycerin is a natural, non-toxic, vegan-friendly humectant.
It attracts and retains water in the skin while supporting other active ingredients.Â It fills inÂ gaps in dryer skin which makes skin look better and keeps the outer layer of the skin intact.
A fraction of coconut or palm oil fatty acids combined with glycerin. It gives a product a rich feel and creates a silky appearance when applied to the skin.

A protective antioxidant that lessens discoloration. Â Tocopherol makes damaged skin soft and pliable again while reducing wrinkle and fine line formation.
An impressive line-up, isnâ€™t it? But even great ingredients can underperform if they are chemically processed. Le Vesque uses no chemicals and a clean harvesting method: CO2 extraction.
CLEAN CBD & CO2 EXTRACTION
The CBD in this formulation is harvested by CO2 Extraction. CO2 Extraction is a green technology which retains all the natural properties while eliminating any heavy metals and pesticides. CO2 Extraction doesnâ€™t pollute the environment.
CBD is sometimes extracted by using harsh chemicals. This is cheaper and faster. But it strips many of the wonderful natural healing properties of CBD.
If you are using a CBD skin product that doesnâ€™t impress you, then the CBD may be inferior and a cheaper, chemically extracted variant.
Le Vesque CBD Luxe Body LotionÂ is a soothing treatment. It is an excellent skin hydrator, hand lotion, and cuticle fixer, especially after hand washing. It treats my dry feet and parched elbows, and rough knees. It leaves my shoulders soft and supple.
It leaves my skin smooth, plump, and luminous with no greasy feel.
Just a tiny dollop of the creamy lotion is all that is needed.
The scent is a natural leafy scent with grapefruit overtones. No hempy odor.
The dry-down is not waxy, gritty, greasy or oily.
Skin does appear instantly more supple. The effect lasts through hand washing.
Package Design Features
The opaque pump bottle is airtight to keep the CBD and other precious ingredients fresh.

We produced this blog post because we think this product is great and want to share it with you!
Love cbd but hate the smell grapefruit sounds good
Style Chicks says
We agree, the strong smell is a dealbreaker on some otherwise good CBD products. Le Vesque isnâ€™t just tolerable, it smells really good.
Hannah Spence Smothers says
CBD royal jelly and algae sound wonderful together!!
Style Chicks says
Hey there Hannah!
They ARE wonderful ingredients, and it dries down so nicely on the skin without causing breakouts.
Hailey Simpson says
My hands are dry and raw from all tge hand sanitizer!! This looks like a good idea
Style Chicks says
Us too! My hands have really gone through the ringer lately. This is a very versatile CBD product. It is great for hands, and it is a wonderful anti-aging cream.
I used LJ high cbd from sephora for my eczema but ugh the smell! Cant leave the house wearing it. But i like fruit scented
Style Chicks says
Absolutely, CBD is GREAT for eczema, and is one of the few ingredients to treat both eczema and acne at once.
Some CBDs smell pretty strong, I wouldnâ€™t wear one out of the house either. This has a nice light, natural grapefruit that is not overpowering.
