Happy 4/20! 6 Beauty Products Packed With Cannabis
We’ve been hip to the benefits of Cannabis for years, but as others rush to play catch up, the beauty industry has found innovative ways to integrate this “magic” ingredient into face creams, lip balms, and even facials. There’s little that cannabis can’t fix—from chronic pain to inflammation (which could help keep breakouts away) — and below are 6 products packed with the ingredient that are more than just a gimmick. And before you ask, no, none of them will leave you with the munchies.
It’s only appropriate that the cult-vegan brand release a mascara packed with cannabis oil. Using CBD (cannabidiol) as an alternative to beeswax, which is most commonly used in mascaras, this creamy formula applies super-smooth leaving your lashes with little to no clumping.
We weren’t kidding when we said there’s nothing a little cannabis can’t fix, including your curls. Who would have thought that Hemp Seed Oils could be used to close the hair follicle, making your hair super-hydrated? After using this hair masque your curls will be bouncier than ever and retain moisture all day long.
There are many critics of using cannabis on their faces, but this cream will put all of those fears to rest. The CBD’s high lipid production aids in fighting off skin issues such as acne, and greatly reduces redness. It leaves the skin glowy and refreshed, and will have you wondering why you haven’t tried it sooner.
No, this will not make your living room smell like a dispensary. Rather, the mix of cannabis, wild, ripe plums and fresh green fig create a fruity aroma with the perfect amount of depth and warmth. Not to mention, this beauty of this candle is almost as fantastic as the scent.
Though the cold months may be coming to an end, keeping your lips hydrated through the spring and summer is just as crucial. Blended with 100% vegan shea butter, this hemp-heavy “chazstick” perfectly hydrates your lips— without the greasiness— and unlike many other lip balms doesn’t fade after a lowly 15 minutes.
Cannabis Spa Treatments
Even spas are now incorporating cannabis into their treatments. Black-owned spa Harlem Skin & Laser Clinic, has mastered their “cannabis facial,” featuring in-house ingredients that are guaranteed to reduce inflammation and feel like heaven on your skin.
