Daye are quickly becoming one of my favourite brands. Not only have they made period products delightful, they’re a company with ethics. From keeping their operations C02 neutral, to employing women from the criminal and care systems who might not ordinarily be given the greatest opportunities to succeed, it’s a brand which seriously delivers. A few weeks back, I fell in love with their tampons (you can read the whole post here), so when I got the chance to try their CBD Balm which they taut as ‘rest & relaxation in a jar’, I couldn’t resist!
The chunky tin comes adorned with the brand’s signature doodles and it’s surprisingly chunky. I was expecting something closer to a lip balm tin, but happily, this is far more generous. If you’ve read this site for a while, you’ll know that I’m a CDB fan – when I take it orally, I am noticeably calmer and less panicky, and I find it really soothing when applied topically, so Daye’s balm, which boasts concentrated levels (30%) of pure, whole plant hemp extract with naturally occurring CBD (400mg) and an invigorating botanical blend of ginger, lavender and lemongrass sounded like heaven.
I’ve been loving the balm as an indulgent addition to my nightly regime – massaged into everything which needs a little TLC, from my cuticles to my heels. The balm is heavenly to use thanks to the Shea and Cocoa Butter formula which feels super hydrating as well as silky soft. In addition to loving how soothing and hydrating it is, the balm smells absolutely heavenly too. It’s perfect for combatting winter dryness, and it can even help soothe aching muscles – perfect if you’ve been a bit keen during your at-home workout!
Daye CBD Balm is priced at £21 and is available here.
