Canavation Product Group Launches New Skincare Line with Denise Richards

2019 is definitely a year about CBD products! There is an awesome beauty CBD brand I want to introduce. Canavation Product Group, Inc. (Canavation) announced that it has developed a new skincare line with reality star, actress and former fashion model Denise Richards (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Bold and the Beautiful, Starship Troopers, Wild Things, Drop Dead Gorgeous, and The World Is Not Enough). Richards played an active role in the development of the line, participating by defining its key elements and then personally testing the formulations until she was satisfied.

The line is called CBme Beauty ( and the brand is defined as sophisticated, cool and self-indulgent. This daily regimen contains superior formulations that include patented peptides to enhance performance. The line includes a daily use pH neutral probiotic cleanser, a light weight, hydrating cream oil moisturizer with an optional SPF 25, a retinol based nightly renewal serum, an advanced eye therapy treatment and a neck & décolleté treatment.

Canavation and Richards decided to launch the CBme brand initially with hemp seed oil, a long-accepted ingredient in topical skincare because it contains vitamins, omega-6 & 3 and fatty acids. CBme Beauty will soon feature CBD and other rare cannabinoids that Canavation produces or has available under an exclusive license agreement with Teewinot Life Sciences (Teewinot).

Due to patented technology and its exclusive license involving premium quality, rare cannabinoids, Canavation is poised to be the first consumer product company to introduce rare cannabinoids, well beyond CBD, that is starting to flood the marketplace. The next generation of cannabinoids are Non-GMO, consistent high-quality and will outperform the functions that CBD is known to achieve.

“I am delighted by the CBme line that we have created. These are wonderful products, Richards said. “What I find most exciting is that there is a long-range plan to introduce new items that will constantly be better and better.”

“Denise has been a please to work with,” says Bill Barlow, CEO of Canavation. “She knows exactly what she wants each product to do and our team has been able to give that to her, all while making them unique products in the marketplace.”

This is the official launch of the CBme Beauty brand. Here are the key brand items:

Probiotic Cleanser PB3 is a gentle pH neutral cleanser featuring 3 patented lipo peptides formulated to remove makeup and impurities without stripping away your natural oils. The vitamin enriched treatment also feeds and protects the skin. It cleans, treats and protects in a single wash. PB3 is pH neutral and ideal for all skin types.

Cream Oil Moisturizer C0M is a light weight, hydrating day cream formulated to repair, replenish, and provide the perfect balance of moisture for healthy, glowing skin. C0M is a 2 in 1 product because it hydrates and treats in a single step providing a controlled release of moisturizer throughout the day. This helps hold the moisture in the skin longer without feeling greasy.

Nightly Tri-Retinol Renewal Serum N3R is a true age reversal serum that allows the proper dose of actives to be delivered so that the skin can adjust to the activity, resulting in a thicker stratum corneum which minimizes irritation potential. Hemp Seed Oil helps boost activity because it is a small molecule that can penetrate deeper into the skin. N3R is enriched with vitamins; A, B, C, D & E. The lipidated Vitamin C – Promotes collagen production while our patented peptides are designed to target single repair functions.

Advanced Eye Therapy AET is an age reversal regimen that firms and tightens delicate skin surrounding the eye. The formula targets these areas with retinol with 6 bio actives including vitamin K. It helps dark circles, it lightens the skin, and helps reduce “crow’s feet”.

Continued use lightens the appearance of dark circles under the eye and lessens fine lines and wrinkles.

CBme Beauty’s Magic Ingredients:

Hemp seed oil helps “boost” activity because it is a small molecule that can penetrate deeper into the skin. Hemp Oil has balancing properties making it ideal for any skin type (oily or dry, regular or sensitive). Hemp Seed Oil by itself is a good source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which are called essential fats. To benefit your skin, these fatty acids have to be absorbed externally because the body does not produce them.

Peptides are tiny proteins and fundamental components of cells that boost activity in other ingredients. Structurally, peptides penetrate the top layer of our skin and help other ingredients get to lower layers where they can go to work.

Chamomile is used as an herbal ingredient known for its anti-inflammatory and bactericidal qualities. Scientific research supports this. Research also confirms that it can help calm sensitive skin and can be used to soothe, moisturize and inhibit the growth of bacteria.

Retinol, also known as Vitamin A has been shown to be effective at being the magic ingredient in helping your skin restore a youthful glow. Effective in reducing the appearance of the effects of environmental stressors such as sun damage. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, help to even the appearance of skin color and helps stimulate collagen production.

About CBme Beauty:

CBme Beauty’s mission is to deliver results through their products. They recognize that a daily skincare experience is as much of an indulgence as it is a necessity. That’s why CBme has devoted countless hours of holistic research to bring you a skincare line dedicated to maintaining and restoring your beauty with the highest quality ingredients.

As the property readies to unveil an all-new hotel lobby later this month, the iconic resort is seeking donations of memorabilia and collectibles from the original Sahara Hotel and Casino to display and provide a hint of nostalgia to its new exquisite, modern design.

All submissions will be considered. Rare items from the 1950s through the 1970s are of particular interest, especially those that will provide dimension to the look and feel of the all-new lobby including menus, china, figurines and more. Selected contributors will have the opportunity to experience an exclusive lobby tour and fireside chat with the designer at CASBAR Lounge. 
SAHARA Las Vegas will be accepting submissions through Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019. Those looking to contribute their items to the resort’s transformation can submit by sharing a photo on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #OURSAHARA or by email at

How to Make Your New House a Home

Having bought your first house has to be one of the greatest moments in life. When that loan got approved, you were a homeowner, and it felt pretty good.

Whether it’s an old house or a brand new estate, you’re going to be stepping into an empty space. Empty as in you have yet to establish your presence. To make it your own, you’d need to put a lot more than furniture in it.

Our homes are our sanctuaries, so most things in our home have a reason for being there. There are a few things you can’t do without to personalize your new territory.

Stylize Your Front Porch

Most neighborhoods will have their own themes when it comes to exterior design. Most of the houses, including yours, will share the same looks. You can paint the outside walls to make it stand out, and it would. 

Most of the time, though, it’d make your house an eyesore. Not to mention, you could risk violating local regulations.

A safe bet is to decorate your front yard. There’s a ton of room for you to personalize the front of the property. When doing this, avoid putting common or overused stuff all over the place. We want people to remember our home as a stylish space, not a dumping ground for random knick-knacks, and lawn ornaments.

It’s better to handmake things for the porch. If you’re handy, try building a small shed or treehouse. You can also customize your deck or patio. For those of us with a big, grassy yard, adding exotic plants with beautiful flowers will draw the eye to the greenery.

Plant Your Own Scent

Ever noticed whenever you go to someone’s house, there’s always a smell that you can’t seem to find anywhere else? It comes from the items and activities inside their home. Since everybody has different living arrangements, the airy mixture is unique.

Your house will greet your guests with its special scent, too. It’s best to keep your visitors as well as their nostrils comfortable during their stay.

Know that every object in the house produces an odor, even if it’s an unscented product. Your choice of wood for the floor or the material of your curtains all affect the smell of the house. 

Try to get a good whiff of the stuff you plan to bring home before you do so. Once you start living with it, you’d stop noticing its scent.

Keep your house drafty. Have the doors and windows open to let air in. Avoid using room fresheners or any artificial fragrances. They don’t remove odors. They only overwhelm existing odors with their own.

Use natural perfumes such as flowers or certain plants. However, use fragrant plants, but ones that people aren’t allergic to.

Renovate and Repair

If you’re buying an old house, renovation is bound to happen. Some owners may leave their homes in terrible conditions. Make sure you check for any damage and prolonging structural issues before moving in. 

The important things to check for include mold, leakage, floor, and roof damage. It’s best to hire professionals for these repairs. You do not want to see broken shingles or any distortion on your roof. These are warning signs of serious damage, and you will need to get it fixed as soon as possible.

There are plenty of customization options for new houses. Each home often comes with exclusive upgrades like foyers and kitchen counters. It can be fun going through the collection. Keep in mind that these upgrades can and will get very expensive.

Other Concerns

Nothing lasts forever, but your house will survive you if you maintain it. Keeping your home tidy and secure can help improve your wellness and the property because a home is a great long-term investment.

Check regularly for possible deterioration or damage around the house. Take care of the exterior of your home, too. This includes annual painting and re-roofing. Climate can be unpredictable; you can’t be too careful when it comes to property damage.
