Taking care of your skin is a form of self-care — whether that’s remembering to wear sunscreen or washing your makeup off before going to bed. But you don’t need an extensive, long routine to get smooth skin you’ll feel good about — and The Feelist is setting out to prove it.
The Feelist makes just four products: a facial oil, two types of body cream and a detoxifying salt scrub. All of its products contain broad spectrum CBD and ingredients you can actually pronounce.
“We believe that clean beauty should be the rule, not the exception,” the brand writes on its site. “Our botanically rich and highly effective products are carefully formulated without thousands of harmful ingredients.”
Social media influencer-turned-entrepreneur Shea Marie launched The Feelist in 2020 after working on the products for a couple of years. The goal, according to the brand’s site, was to make luxurious, yet functional products that work with many different skin types. And, of course, make them look gorgeous too.
The Feelist’s hit product is undoubtedly the Most Wanted Radiant Facial Oil, which took two years to formulate and has hit sell-out status multiple times.
“In formulating our face oil, we chose oils that serve a multitude of different skin issues and are non-comedogenic, so they won’t clog your pores,” Marie told The Zoe Report. “Some members of our team were reluctant as face oils don’t work well with every skin type, so we started working on it almost as an experiment.”
The facial oil contains 500mg of broad spectrum CBD, along with jojoba seed oil, rosehip oil, evening primrose oil and marula oil. Together, these oils moisturize and soothe skin, and give skin a radiant glow without clogging pores.
CBD is often hailed for its anti-inflammatory properties, and may reduce redness and inflammation caused by acne, rosacea and eczema. It’s important to note that CBD hasn’t been approved by the FDA.
Nonetheless, the Most Wanted Radiant Facial Oil has been lovingly dubbed “the face oil for people who can’t use face oils” by the team at The Feelist. And, it has an average 5 out of 5 star rating on its site, thanks to 122 happy customers.
“I don’t know what it is about this oil but it just instantly feels so relaxing and soothing when I put it on my face,” wrote one five-star reviewer. “I started using it at night as the last step in my routine and now I can’t imagine skipping it.”
