With Ramadan almost over, we're looking forward to the lights and sounds of Eid. We have family time, important traditions, and delicious food to look forward to. But what about the gifts?
We understand that this Ramadan might be a little different. Because of this, we want to take the stress out of shopping. Whether you're not sure what to get your skinfluencer cousins, or just want to shop from the comfort of your own home, we can help!
This Eid-ul-Fitr, it's time to introduce your nearest and dearest to the glorious world of CBD skincare.
Is CBD Halal?
Most Muslim scholars can agree that CBD is, in fact, halal. This is because manufacturers extract CBD from a natural plant. Therefore, given that it's a natural plant extract, CBD is halal.
However, not all forms of CBD are created equal, or considered halal. For CBD to be halal, it has to be free from THC. In the case of full-spectrum CBD, small quantities of THC are permissible, as this won't cause intoxication.
Therefore, you can quite safely give CBD skincare products as Eid gifts. Plus, most CBD skincare products are topicals. This means that they remain on the surface of your skin after application, so you don't have to worry about THC content, or feeling intoxicated.
Because of this, you can shop for (and gift) CBD skincare products, without fear of what your family will say. In fact, after they try these products, they might hop on the CBD bandwagon too!
This Eid, take care of your Mum's skin
Nobody does it like your mum. From delicious dishes to home remedies, there's really no one like her. However, you have to admit -- her skincare routine can be a little, well... basic.
Why not encourage her to take better care of her skin? Start off small with Poko's Correcting Eye Cream. Formulated to tackle fine lines and dark circles, it's a must-have in anyone's beauty routine. Plus, its light formula and natural ingredients work for all skin types!
You could also surprise her with Poko's Regenerating Collagen Moisturiser. Formulated with CBD and Matrixyl 3000, this moisturiser helps to stimulate collagen production. Its luxurious texture means that your mum will get a little me-time whenever she puts it on, no matter how busy she is.
Eid skincare gifts are for men, too
At Poko, we believe that good skincare isn't gendered. That's why, this Eid, we've got the best gifts around for your dad, your brothers, or your husband. Why not treat the special man in your life to a bottle of our Luxury Facial Oil?
We've formulated this facial oil to hydrate and moisturise the skin. A few drops on the skin after a clean shave will go a long way. In fact, it could help dry, ashy cheeks feel smooth and supple again.
Plus, the Luxury Facial Oil doubles up as an excellent beard oil. This means that it could help nourish facial hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and strong. It also works to moisturise the skin underneath, helping to address dry and itchy patches.
Additionally, you could treat your favourite men to our Cooling Balm. It's the perfect gift for someone who works or studies from home. After all, we all know how hard it can be to work from the dining table, while constantly adjusting the screens to optimum height.
While their WFH setup might not be ideal, this balm could be a gamechanger. By combining menthol crystals and CBD, this balm works to target and address sore muscles in the back, neck, and shoulders. If they've been working round-the-clock throughout Ramadan, it could go down a treat.
The best Eid gifts for your wife are...
Good things come in small packages, but small packages can be just as thoughtful. This Eid, show your wife that you care by treating her to one of Poko's gift sets. We'd recommend the Hydrating Skincare Gift Set; it works for all skin types, with products anyone would love.
Our Hydrating Skincare Gift Set consists of our:
Luxury Facial Oil, to reinforce her natural moisture barrier. Plus, with its list of antioxidants and fatty acids, she won't want to be without it.
Soothing Serum, to keep her skin hydrated. This serum also helps reduce redness and spot-causing bacteria. Its lightweight texture means it's perfect for everyday use.
Ultra Hydrating Moisturiser, for an added boost of moisture. It's a non-comedogenic way to lock in moisture, hydrating the skin without clogging pores.
If you don't want to mess with your wife's established skincare routine (and with good reason), we still want to help. Why not give her a jar of Poko's Warming Balm this Eid? It contains CBD, comfrey oil, and capsicum oleoresin to help with menstrual cramps and bloating.
She can also apply it liberally to sore joints and muscles after a long day at work, or after beating her personal best at the gym. Therefore, if you understand her struggles and want to ease her aches, this balm is a thoughtful, personal gift.
Eid gifts for your children and younger siblings
We all know that sometimes, teens have to be encouraged to take better care of their skin. Your younger brother might have made fun of your extensive skincare routine -- but not for much longer. Why not give the gift of good skin this Eid, with our Soothing Serum?
Teenage skin is fickle. It goes from clear and smooth to oily and acne-riddled -- practically overnight. Here's where our Soothing Serum could come in handy.
The combination of tea tree oil, CBD, and aloe vera powder helps to regulate sebum production. It could also assist in soothing breakouts. Therefore, it's an extremely helpful addition to any teenager's skincare routine!
Furthermore, with the gift of skincare, you're expressing the need for self-care, and for them to take time for themselves.
We all need a little self-care this Eid
This Eid-ul-Fitr is the perfect example of how we're adjusting to the new normal, with hopes of going back to how things used to be. While some of us are safely celebrating with our families, others might not have the chance to do so.
At Poko, we're here for you -- regardless of your situation. If you're apart from your nearest and dearest, we can deliver their gifts safely, right to their doorstep. We also ensure quick delivery, if you're a last-minute shopper who wants to give their family the best.
If you're on your own this Eid, why not treat yourself to one of our Skincare Gift Sets? After all, you've made it through Ramadan, and you deserve beautiful skin. Plus, there's really no better time to treat yourself.
No matter how you're celebrating, we hope this Eid-ul-Fitr is the best one yet. From everyone at Poko, Eid Mubarak!
