We found the best CBD and hemp-based skincare solutions to solve your every beauty concern
CBD is finally having its long-awaited moment in Hong Kong. From the opening of Found, the city’s first-ever CBD cafe, to CBD yoga classes at Yoga Bambam, and even CBD beer from Young Master, Hong Kong can’t seem to get enough of the hemp movement.
And it’s no wonder why—CBD is shown to balance serotonin levels in the body, soothing anxiety and depression when consumed orally, and aid with skin issues when applied topically thanks to cannabidiol’s anti-inflammatory properties and nutrients.

Best for: Damaged Skin
A blend of hemp seed oil and oregano oil, Kiehl’s Hemp Seed Oil is a non-comedogenic facial oil that targets problematic skin. While the hemp seed oil works to improve the skin’s barrier, repairing damaged skin and reducing discomfort and redness, the green oregano extract acts as a natural antibiotic which purifies and relieves skin issues such as acne.
Claiming to help reduce the appearance of blemishes, redness and discomfort as well as helping skin feel softer and more moisturized after four weeks of usage, Kiehl’s recommends massaging 2-3 drops of this concentrate on clean skin after toner and serum until it’s fully absorbed.
