Our beauty bags are stocked up to celebrate the legalization of marijuana on October 17. Cannabis ingredients have been making a splash in beauty products in recent years thanks to their natural healing properties. Oils extracted from cannabis are easily absorbed into the skin and provide almost instant relief for sufferers of dry skin and hair – and they are also known to aid in more serious conditions and irritations such as rosacea and eczema.
Oils also help contain frizz and static, leaving skin and hair silky smooth and flexible. With the continuous trend of natural makeup and hair products, along with the proven benefits of cannabis for a myriad of reasons, we’ve collected our favourite beauty products that are 4/20 friendly.
1. Hemp Hard-Working Foot Protector, The Body Shop - $18.00
Kiss those rough heels goodbye, and welcome smooth soles thanks to The Body Shop’s Hemp Hard-Working Foot Protector. Infused with hemp seed oil that helps soften skin because of its essential fatty acids, this is the perfect addition to after-shower care to help heal your feet.
2. Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze, Lush Cosmetics - $26.95
Hair that could use some silky hydration in the dry winter cold will benefit from Jasmine and Henna Fluff-Eaze hair moisturizer from Lush Cosmetics. Packed with organic hemp that helps hydrate your strands, as well as other healthy ingredients such as Brazil nut and extra virgin coconut oil to control frizz. Add this product weekly to your hair care routine for ultimate hair shine and health.
3. KUSH High Volume Mascara, Milk Makeup - $29.00
Sky high lash volume is possible with a little help from cannabis oil. Milk Makeup’s KUSH High Volume Mascara does just that – adds intense volume and dark black pigment while still making your lashes soft and flexible. The mascara’s cannabis sativa seed oil (hemp seed oil) helps bind the volumizing fibers, ultimately preventing flaking.
4. ‘REPLICA’ Music Festival, Maison Margiela - $155.00
They say scent is tied to memory, and you will be reminiscing about Coachella with this fragrance influenced by the smells of favourite music festivals. Offering a woody and spicy scent with notes of cannabis, incense oil, and leather accord, you’ll be taken back to summer days listening to your go-to jams with thousands of other fans.
