ULU is a CBD skincare company that focuses on marrying technology with CBD oil to create the best skin care solutions. Paul Hemberly is the founder of the UK based skincare brand, and he is passionate about more than just making brilliant skincare products.
Paul is familiar with highly stressful events and tackling challenging situations. He is on a personal mission to ‘increase positivity and confidence in people and life in general’, and does so through his brand ULU.
ULU stands for ‘U Love U’, which is a fitting name for the brand and its goals. Although Paul is a very successful and career-driven businessman who wants to give something back to people that feel stressed and overwhelmed (just like he has felt many times in his career) by relieving those stresses through his brilliant products and normalizing the use of CBD oil.
Now that you know a little bit about ULU’s background, mission, and founder, let us dive into their product. In this review, I am going to be looking at their Revitalise 5% CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory serum.
I have been in the skincare and beauty industry for over nine years and have worked for some of the top skincare and makeup brands in their flagship stores in England and Melbourne, Australia. I will be picking apart ULU’s CBD serum and sharing with you what I love about it, what I feel needs improving, along with an overview of its pros and cons. So, let’s begin!
A Deep Dive Into The ULU Revitalise 5% CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory Serum
Your skin is a very complicated organ; if you are run down, stressed, tired, or haven’t been eating healthily, your skin will give it away. The Revitalise 5% CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory serum use CBD as its key ingredient to fight free radicals and the damage caused to your skin from pollution.
It also improves the look of wrinkles and is packed with antioxidant properties that brighten your skin, resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance. The serum has a high CBD concentration of 5%, which is the key natural and organic ingredient in the serum.
The serum works from the deepest layers of the skin upwards, repairing damages that haven’t surfaced yet and are not noticeable to you at this moment in time. It not only prevents and slows down damage to your skin; it helps reverse rings of aging and damage caused by pollution.
Who’s It For?
This serum is ideal for anyone who is suffering from one or more of the following symptoms:
- Dehydrated skin
- Skin that looks dull and lifeless
- Puffy skin
- Irritated skin
Men and women of all ages can use this serum. The CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory serum can be applied as a preventative skincare solution to protect or repair past damage made to the skin.
It is important to note that it is never too late or too early to use skincare items. Adding moisture to the skin is important to keeping you looking and feeling fresh at any age.
A common misconception is that people with oily skin shouldn’t use skincare products as they will make their skin oilier. This is not true; regardless of whether your skin is oily or dry, everyone should use a moisturizer. A lot of the time, oily skin is very dehydrated, and excess oil is the body’s way of protecting dehydrated skin.
Men usually have oilier skin than women and shy away from using skincare items. Serums are different from moisturizers; serums penetrate to the deepest layers of the skin and work their way up, whereas moisturizers work from the top layers down. Serums are fast-absorbing and lightweight, so anyone that doesn’t like the feeling of skincare products on their skin will not find this serum uncomfortable.
What We Like About ULU Revitalise 5% CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory Serum
I love that the serum has such a high concentration of CBD, which is in fact, the first ingredient on the list, meaning there is more CBD in the serum than anything else on the ingredients list. Next on the ingredients list is organic aloe oil leaf juice and coconut oil, which are popular and luxurious natural skincare ingredients.
The serum is rich yet fast-absorbing, giving you an intense, fast relief from dryness without being sticky or uncomfortable. It has a lovely cooling effect on the skin, which is very soothing for people suffering from dry, cracked skin or rosacea.
Our skin is porous, and anything we put on it is absorbed into our bodies, just like if we were to eat the ingredients. This CBD serum is 100% organic, pesticide, and herbicide-free, making it clean and pure.
Items are shipped within one or two working days, and there is also a 30-day return window. You can have a full refund if you change your mind and decide the serum isn’t for you.
What We Don’t Like About ULU Revitalise 5% CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory Serum
It is a little disappointing that there is only 15ml of product per bottle. This is a very small amount and is the size of eye creams or eye serums, not face serums. The standard industry size for face creams and serums is a minimum of 30ml per pot and up to 75ml.
ULU will not refund items that have been used or opened. If the seal is damaged or has been removed, you will not be refunded. This is a standard procedure for makeup and beauty brands; however, premium beauty brands offer their clients a 100% satisfaction guarantee, regardless of why the customer decided to return it.
- High-quality product
- Organic ingredients
- 5% CBD oil
- Fast delivery
- The return policy does not match premium brand standards
- Very little product for the price
When you order the serum, there are no added extras or free gifts. You do get very fast delivery and an option of 24-hour delivery though, so that is a bonus.
Overview Of Features
Here are the four most prominent features this serum has:
As I mentioned earlier in this review, CBD makes up 5% of the overall product. It is the first ingredient on the ingredient list, which means that the serum contains everything they said it does.
THC is the psychoactive chemical that makes cannabis so popular. The THC in this product is untraceable and will not have a physical or mental effect on you.
Pesticide and Herbicide Free
Pesticides and herbicides are very strong chemicals. Although these chemicals will not cause your skin or body any harm, they are toxic and may affect you in the long run.
Local cultivation is important for the economy, and the fact that ULU cultivates their ingredients nearby, as opposed to from cheaper and less regulated areas in the world, is important to many customers.
The Revitalise 5% CBD Anti-Aging and Anti-Inflammatory serum are definitely worth using. You can tell that every detail has been thought about, from packaging to ingredients and customer aftercare. As a skincare product, it is, without a doubt, a great serum and one that breaks boundaries.
Top Tip: After applying the serum, put a pearl-sized amount of your favorite moisturizer to get the best results from your skin care products. Serums and moisturizers have been designed to go together. You do not have to use a serum and moisturizer from the same brand, although it will boost your results if you do so.
