Introducing Color Up Theraputics

38081621_261382971165587_6703059693981401088_n.jpg

I’ve been wanting to find an amazing skincare line infused with high grade CBD oil for quite some time now! In my years’ long search, I was able to narrow it down between 3 companies, basing my decision on three main goals:

  1. Quality CBD Oil in therapeutic grade dosages

    There are SO any companies claiming the beneficial effects of CBD oil, when they don’t actually contain ANY CBD! Not all hemp oils are created the same; some have Full Spectrum CBD, some have Pure CBD, and some hemp oils have 0 cannabinoids at all. I wanted a real CBD product, with high enough dosages to actually have a significant effect on my client’s skin.

  2. Customer Service
    When working with any line, I wanted to be sure they had a professional social media presence, friendly and helpful brand reps, and are dedicated to making products as amazing as if I could be in the lab myself! When I got a chance to visit the Color Up Therapeutics HQ in Denver last year, they proved they were all that and more! I got to tour the lab, and even got some sneak peaks of new products they were working on. When I tried out the samples they’d given me, it sealed the deal. #besteyecreamever

  3. Price!
    I wanted my clients to be able to afford the full regimen of products their skin will benefit best from, instead of having to save to buy just one product and diluting it with less effective products elsewhere in their routine.

From the company:

“OUR INTENTION AND OUR MISSION

Rooted in Science, Created with Intention. Made with Love.

Our intention for all of our customers is to cultivate balance, harmony, and ease by evoking the power of self healing. We accomplish this through creating carefully formulated products that are derived from cutting edge scientific research, created by chemists, and tested (on humans) for efficacy and potency. We infuse these powerful products with heart centered love, intention, and healing energy.

Our mission is to create products that we can put into service throughout our community, and to provide space for even the most novice of users to learn about how to incorporate cannabis into their lives. We put our products into service by integrating Eastern and Western therapeutic bodywork, aesthetics, yoga, and meditation into our list of offerings. We educate the community by hosting workshops and informational events at our CBD Wellness Center in Denver, as well as teaching CBD/Hemp classes at several schools around the country. We feel strongly about building and maintaining community and we strive to make our products, services, and information available to everybody. We are strictly cruelty-free, all natural, and gluten-free. We lead with our hearts and we believe that when acting for the highest and greatest good of the whole, we will make an impact.

Color Up describes our mission, our intention, and our values; it represents coloring up your life, coloring up your attitude, coloring up your choices, coloring up your chakras, coloring up what you eat – through foods, plants, and more educated choices. Our logo represents triangle breathing, a form of pranayama that focuses on relaxing the mind, body and spirit. It is a leaf cut into 7 intentional spaces; it is a symbol of health and wellness, a way to find balance and harmony, and a way to stay connected to mother earth and all of her offerings.

 

OUR STORY

At Color Up Therapeutics we believe that homeostasis is attainable. All of our products and services aim to evoke the body’s natural ability to heal and balance. Our process begins with the proper care and study of the plants that lend themselves to all of our creations, and extend themselves into all of our products and services. Our Reiki Masters and Therapists work alongside our Cultivators and Chemists to infuse our products with loving and healing intentions.

It’s here in Colorado that the magic begins, but it was decades ago that our collective love for plants, a more natural lifestyle, and the desire to heal ourselves from the inside out, began. As child athletes, we all experienced injuries, aches, misalignments, and emotional pains that needed deep healing. We all come from very different backgrounds, yet we found ourselves making the collective choice to find relief and healing in a more natural and wholistic way. Needless to say, when one of our dogs, Kali, had a series of illnesses leading up to a cancer diagnosis, we made the hard decision to keep her off of pharmaceuticals and instead chose a more natural route of healing. This included Cannabis in its many forms. We began her treatment utilizing high THC marijuana plants, but after noticing the intoxicating effects, switched to high CBD hemp plants and found the results to be powerful. We had such great success treating her, to include tumor and tremor reductions, pain and anxiety relief, and an overall decrease in inflammation throughout her body, that we couldn’t deny the truth – cannabidiol heals.

We began making CBD infusions for everyone who would try it. We gave it away as gifts to our friends with animals, we sent it out to our families, and we started implementing it into our diets as a health measure. Once we began experiencing the benefits ourselves, we realized that we had to help the world on a larger scale. In February of 2015 we created Color Up Therapeutics with the intention of helping others incorporate cannabis into a healthy lifestyle. We spent several years perfecting our formulations and testing our products before building our first CBD Wellness Center and certified cannabis lab in 2017. “

Product Information, Product Reviews, Q and A

Q: What's the difference between a setting powder and a finishing powder?

A: Yes, there is a difference between a setting powder and a finishing powder! Setting powder is what you use to 'set' liquid or creme foundations. This helps to prevent product transfer from the skin to other things such as clothes, or your phone, as well as reducing the tacky feeling some foundations may leave behind. Setting powder is particularly important for those with more oily skin, as many setting powders contain mattifying agents to help control excess shine.

Setting powders come in both pressed and loose versions, and whichever you choose is simply a matter of personal preference. Pressed powders are typically a bit more travel friendly, but many brands now, such as Priia, have nifty resealable sifters to prevent loose powder flying everywhere after you take the container out of your purse or makeup bag. Setting powders are typically translucent or sheerly tinted, but if you still need more coverage than your creme or liquid foundation provides, you can opt for a powder foundation to set your makeup instead.

Glo Minerals Luxe Setting Powder: $42

Finishing powders, in contrast, is intended to go on top of setting powder and all other makeup! Most finishing powders have a high level of silica, which refracts light and helps pores and imperfections appear smoother and smaller. Acne safe brands such as Priia, opt for rice, silk, and pearl powders to achieve the same luminescent effect without potentially clogging sensitive pores. Some finishing powders are translucent, and some are sheerly tinted.

Be careful with finishing powders however! When used incorrectly, they can cause flashback in certain lighting situations (think of all the photos of celebrities with white splotches across their face- misuse of finishing powder). Using a finishing powder to set your makeup can backfire under a camera flash, so be sure you are using your beauty arsenal properly. When used correctly, finishing powders decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pores.

My initial thoughts:

Looking at the ingredient list and then at the price, this moisturizer is a steal! It goes on silky and lightweight and absorbs quickly without making my face look/feel heavy or greasy. The Amino Acid blend is PRETTY far up on the ingredients list, which means this little baby really packs a punch. Just about everything is organic or kosher and its PARABEN FREE which I don't think they even mention in the description. Even the hyaluronic acid in this product is botanically based, not synthetic. The one thing I don't like about vacuum pumps is you never know when you are going to run out, however, they are definitely the most sanitary type of bottle to have. I did receive this product at a discount in exchange for review on Amazon but I can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations and is MUCH better quality than most things I see in department stores. I'm a licensed esthetician, and now am truly wondering if I should keep this for my self, or use on clients in my studio, and I have access to professional grade skincare as well.. I am looking forward to checking out other Foxbrim products.
