Puff, Puff, Mask: Cannabis is a Rising Beauty Trend

Danyelle Valentin // @bufferingbetty

For chronic good skincare *winky face*

We all know the ‘party’ properties of cannabis, even if not from experience. However, many of us, including myself, are or were ignorant of the beauty benefits of it! Cannabis beauty solutions are far from new but they certainly are on trend. Kush Mascara from Milk Makeup and Sephora carrying High Beauty, it looks like CBD should have been on my vanity and in my skincare cabinet ages ago! In addition to improving the skin, having the beauty world have such an emphasis on the healing benefits of marijuana speaks to the social, in my opinion, progression of society. I’m not saying a face cream is going to cause Congress to legalize cannabis, but maybe it will de-stigmatize people and cultures that embrace it.

We be burning not concernin’ while we blending our eye shadow. For me, I noticed the trend really kick off with the launch of this palette. I thought it was funny, socially relevant, and stunning!!! I also LOVE green eye makeup! While this gorgeous palette is not formulated with any cannabis, it is truly a tribute to plant.

The O.g. Hemp Product


Who else remembers going to a beauty supply store with their mom, seeing this brand, and feeling totally confused. Hempz? Is that a weed on the package? Is the place my mom buys rolos and pinches selling drugs? Should I ask my mom or will she grill me about even knowing what the weed looks like?

The Trend Intensifies


Mascara is that one beauty step that, according to me, 9 out of 10 makeup wearers wouldn’t skip. Milk Makeup comes across as the brand that caters to that cool kid, aloof type so adding in a product that hypes up le ganj’ makes perfect sense from a branding POV. But! Their whole base line for infusing this mascara with cannabis would make you pick up a tube.

According to Milk, “Conditioning hemp-derived cannabis oil fuses heart-shaped fibers to lashes for thickness without the fallout. The hydrating formula also fills the hollow fibers for a double dose of volume.” They also used it as a binding tool in order to make the product totally vegan by not using beeswax.

To put it bluntly, cannabis creates reefined beauty.





I tried it for myself! This is the Ambary Gardens Deep Rub. It isn’t a beauty product. It did, however, prove to me all the benefits of the anti-inflammatory goodness of CBD oil. My maternal lineage is cursed to have bad right knee. Not kidding. My grandmother, my mother, and my aunt all have a bad right knee. Mine was activated when I turned 27 and it’s an inherited trait I’d like to speak to the manager about. My grandmother’s knee pain can be intolerable at times so my sister found this ointment that can help. After convincing my grandmother, that, no, she will not get high off of the ointment or addicted to the weed she used it. She said it has been helping her! My knee pain is intolerable when I am menstruating (anyone else get joint pain from pms?). I tried the ointment and I felt like I could literally do jumping jacks with confidence. I had my 26 year old knee back and it was beautiful!
