CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant – although it does not contain psychoactive compounds.
The health industry is obsessed with its relaxing properties, but do not take more than 70mg a day. We look at the latest CBD products, while our beauty editor puts lip glosses to the test.

- Exalt, £5.54 per 330ml bottle but cheaper on subscription, exalt.co.uk – buy now
A cold-pressed juice that tastes amazing as it is a mix of fresh pineapple, orange, mango and lime juice. It is infused with a generous 15mg of Amma Life CBD oil. You could really taste the mango.
Thick without being too thick, filling and refreshing. Contains 122 per cent of your RDI of vitamin C, 155cals and 7.8 per cent sugars. I loved this.
- ZenBears CBD gummies, 600mg jar of 30 fruity flavoured bears costs £39.95, or less if you subscribe, Zenbears.co.uk – buy now
ZenBears CBD gummies are chewable treats with all-natural ingredients that are perfect for popping on the go.
They contain a guaranteed 20mg of CBD per bear and are fat-free. But be warned – they are 52 per cent sugar.
- Little Rick’s Pina, 32mg of CBD per 330ml and 63cal, £14.49 for pack of six, littlerick.co.uk – buy now
Little Rick’s Pina is inspired by the pina colada cocktail. This drink has a tang of pineapple and a taste of coconut.
I don’t like the fact there isn’t any coconut listed in the ingredients, although there is six per cent pineapple juice.

- The Body Shop Shine Lip Liquid, £7 for 8ml, thebodyshop.com – buy now
Described as a shiny, non-sticky blend of lip-smacking goodness – and it is. As a budget buy, it’s great – moisturising, glossy and shiny.
It’s much more sheer than the Bobbi Brown one and sits and slides a bit on the lips. It doesn’t quite soak in as well as the pricier option but for the cost, it’s great.
- Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss – £19 per 6ml; bobbibrown.co.uk – buy now
Super-smooth, ultra-hydrating, not-sticky lip gloss in 12 sheer shades, from very light to bold. Glides on and isn’t thick or gloopy but moisturising and glossy. It’s sheer but with a great colour tone to it.
It lasted ages and there was a slight tint that remained on my lips afterwards. Will keep in my bag! My favourite.

- Hourglass Unreal High-Shine Volumising lip gloss, £29 for 5.6ml, hourglasscosmetics.co.uk – buy now
Described as the ultimate lip gloss that breaks all the rules, it’s hydrating and long-lasting while making lips fuller without the sting in traditional lip plumpers.
This is a lot thicker than the others I tried so you can’t just bung it on easily. But if you want a thicker, covered look, this lasts really well and isn’t sticky. Plus it comes in an impressive 18 shades.
