Cannabis can be healing to the body—inside and out! With new cannabis skincare products entering the market everyday in Ohio and beyond, it can be difficult for consumers to know what’s what and how they work. MedicateOH examines a few cannabis beauty products to give readers an idea of what to expect.
What Makes Cannabis Beauty Products so Alluring?
Cannabinoids have gained the attention of dermatologists for their potential to ease itching and inflammation. Whether you’re treating a condition like dermatitis, psoriasis, or rosacea, or just looking for a healthier glow, here’s a few products to consider:
Pacifica – NATURAL ORIGINS TOMBOY VIBES Hair & Body Mist
Love the smell of cannabis? Ever wanted to smell like freshly grown bud? Tomboy Vibes set out to achieve a perfume and body spray that would give the smell of fresh flowers in bloom with citrusy undertones and grassy notes.
First Impression: Smells like Spring. It reminded me of taking a walk on an early Spring morning and all of the flowers are in bloom. There’s a brightening undertone of citrus that breaks up the floral smell ever so perfectly.
Final Thoughts: The body/hair spray smells strong straight from the bottle, but provides a light scent with application. It may not last your entire day, but it will make it to lunch. It smells wonderful. The scent more resembles flowers from a garden rather than flowers from a growhouse. Sativa lovers will enjoy this uplifting scent.
Calm Sexy Hair Dose Soothing Oil Elixir with CBD
This hair oil can be applied to dry or damp hair, the choice is yours. Apply it to damp hair from mid-shaft to the end or use a small amount on dry hair to control frizz. Either way, it only takes a little to go a long way. The purpose of this product is to add moisture and reduce breakage for all hair types.
“Key Ingredients: Infused with 99% pure CBD. CBD is chocked full of vitamins A, B, C & E, minerals including Zinc and Iron as well as fatty acids, Cold-pressed avocado oil, Cold-pressed macadamia oil”
First Impression: It is lightly scented and will not overpower any scent you are wearing or using on your hair. Hair does not feel oily, rather feels soft and detangled.
Final Thoughts: After a few uses, this hair oil is great. I cannot say whether or not the CBD is making a difference or if it is the act of oiling my hair, but my hair is sleek, shiny, and manageable. I recommend this product to anyone who likes to use hair oil or anyone who wants to give it a try.
Milani – Green Goddess Transforming Lip Balm
According to the Milani website (2022), this lip balm is “infused with ultra-hydrating Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E, and Aloe Leaf Extract, the nourishing formula goes on green and shifts to create your perfect pink shade.”
First Impression: Whether looking to add subtle color to your look or to heal those dry, cracked lips, this lip balm is perfect for you. It is extremely nourishing, with a slightly minty aroma. The mint also provides a stimulating experience.
Final Thoughts: This lip balm is great for a low-maintenance, easy look. The pink is subtle enough to be worn as a lip balm, but is perfect for that natural look. It is an easy lip color on the go that eliminates the need to moisturize before application.
Milani – Green Goddess Makeup Melter Cleansing Balm
Not all cleansing balms are created equal. According to the Milani website (2022), this formula is “suitable for all skin types, [and] removes the most stubborn makeup, sunscreen and pollution with a spa-like blend of bergamot, vetiver and verbena”.
First Impression: Waterproof makeup is no match for the Milani Green Goddess Makeup Melter Cleansing Balm. Not only does it smell amazing, but it is super silky and leaves your skin feeling hydrated.
Final Thoughts: Not only does this balm smell like a light and creamy key lime pie, but it knocks out the hardest makeup to remove. After rinsing, you are left with hydrated and velvety soft skin. This is a great tool to add to your repertoire.
Revolution – High Brow Gel
This eyebrow gel comes in three colors – ash brown for fairer hair, medium brown for chocolate brown hair, and dark brown for darker hair. According to the Revolution website (2022), “Your eyebrows will appear fuller and the infused cannabis sativa seed oil will help to nourish and protect the hairs”.
First Impression: Great gel for those who want a medium hold without adding any weight to the face. The gel consistency is thinner than other brow gels on the market, but that allows for buildable use. Once dry, your eyebrows will stay in place, but also will be afforded movement.
Final Thoughts: I appreciate the way this allows by eyebrows to move, while still holding the style. I cannot visibly see a difference in my brow hair health, however, this is a great product for those who may be new to brow gel or those looking for a lighter hold.
Makeup Revolution – Good Vibes Chilled Bomb Lip Oil
Pair it with or without your favorite lip color for a look that shines and hydrates. This lip oil nourishes, hydrates, and cools the lips. This formula is vegan, cruelty free, and infused with Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil.
First Impression: This lip oil has a cooling sensation when applied to the lips. It nourishes and moisturizes your lips, leaving behind soft, smooth skin. It provides great shine and works great as a lip gloss.
Final Thoughts: This takes me back to middle school with the clear lip gloss that all the cool girls wore. It can be added to literally any look, or worn by itself to heal the lips. It pairs greatly with the Milani Green Goddess Transforming Lip Balm. This is a new staple in my skin care routine.
Potency 710 – The Gold Serum Botanical Face Oil
If you like to feel like you are relaxing in a wooded, floral area while tending to your skincare routine, this is the product for you. According to the Potency No. 710 website (2022), “This full-spectrum CBD serum is uniquely blended together with oils like blue tansy, frankincense, sandalwood, and rose oil to name drop a few.”
First Impression: A little goes a long way. One small drop covered half of my face. It absorbs well and does not leave you feeling oily.
Final Thoughts: With all of the oils present in this mixture, having the CBD and CBG infused in this oil is an added bonus. The scent can last you through your workday. Your skin will thank you for the nourishment this oil provides. It is not too heavy and an easy addition to your skincare routine.
