Beauty 101: CBD Oil + Cannabis Beauty Products

No comments
Whenever there is a hyped up ingredient in the beauty industry, I get very curious about it. Whether it's hyaluronic acid or environmental protectors, once something becomes popular you will notice it more and more.

Sometimes when a trend is popular in one category, beauty will pick it up and make it their own. That's exactly what is happening with Cannabis and CBD Oil.

These two hemp ingredients have become more popular in recent years (probably within the last year and a half) in the wellness industry. CBD is being used in supplements, in massages and facials, and even in food.

CBD is a natural anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and a lot of other things so it's a no brainer that it would start to be used in beauty products.

*From the wellness perspective, I have used CBD and incorporated it into my wellness routine. That post will be coming soon! 

I've taken note of all the beauty products that contain CBD and have purchased a fair amount of them, so that's what this post is all about!


MILK Kush Mascara

The MILK Makeup Kush Mascara was the first time I saw a makeup brand release a CBD infused product and I was stoked. I was insanely curious about what this mascara would be like and what kind of effect the CBD would have on lashes. Per Sephora's website, the CBD is infused into the mascara to help condition and thicken your lashes and prevent any fallout. It will also help hydrate your lashes (interesting), even after removing your makeup.

I received a sample of this from Sephora and wow, I was blown away. It is hands down a top 5 mascara for me and I have a few samples stocked up so I haven't bought a full size yet. The brush is thick without being overpowering, so it grabs onto all my lashes and really lengthens them which is exactly what I look for in a mascara. It's a must-try in my opinion.

MILK Kush Lip Balm

Once I tried the Kush Mascara, I was intrigued by the other Kush products. After reading a review of the lip balm, I immediately purchased the $18 CBD infused balm. My shade is Green Dragon (which is the original and until writing this, I had no idea that there were other tints) and it is truly the most insane lip balm I have ever tried.

Before that, let's examine the CBD oil in it. It makes sense that CBD would work well for lips because it's a natural anti-inflammatory. The Kush balm hydrates and calms the lips; pair that with the other good ingredients like shea, cocoa and mango butter and you have a recipe for success.

I've had a lot of issues with lip balms in the past; sometimes they work for a few weeks or months and then they wreak havoc on my lips. However, I have used an entire tube of this over the past four months and I am blown away. It's a lip balm that leaves my lips smooth, soft, supple, and healed. It doesn't just cure the chapped lips for a few days, but really penetrates the lips and heals them. If you have issues with your lips, please pick up this lip balm. It's magic.

Origins Cannabis Hello Calm Mask

Back in September when I went to the Kate Spade NYFW event, they had activation booths for other brands, and that included Origins. They were sampling their new Cannabis Hello Calm Mask and when I tried it, I was very intrigued. I think this might've been the first time I actually tried a cannabis skincare product... just as the lip balm, it makes sense. CBD is supposed to calm you and incorporating that into skincare just makes sense. I recently picked this up after having it in my Sephora favorites for months and I'm so happy to have it. It's the ideal mask for when your skin is having a moment; it soothes and calms your irritated skin but also hydrates so you get the best of both worlds. I think it'll be great in the coming months as we transition out of cold weather and into the hot, humid months.

Below are more cannabis products that I hope to buy and try soon!




As CBD becomes more popular and people start to understand it more, I'm sure we will see the rise of it being used in more consumer products.

Have you ever tried a beauty product with CBD in it?
