Today’s cool kids are doing more puff-puff-brush and less puff-puff-pass.
Weed isn’t just for a recreational sesh under high school bleachers anymore—and we’re not just talking about medicinal treatments or pain management. The natural substance is here to increase and enhance your own natural beauty.
That’s right kids: marijuana is actually the secret cure to all of your beauty qualms. Irritated, acne-prone skin? Cured. Greasy, heavy hair? Solved. Thin or clumpy eyelashes? Forgotten about.
That once stigmatized drug that’s been causing so much legal debate and gotten us into trouble with parents during our teen years is in fact a game-changer to the beauty field. And, as recently vegan Milk Makeup has realized, it’s the perfect ingredient to keeping products au-naturel and cruelty-free, while still providing the same, if not better, results as harsh chemical-filled products.
Kush Mascara, Milk’s latest release is infused with cannabis oils, as well as it’s fellow natural ingredients like poppy seed oil, sunflower seed oil, and cupuacu butter. The cannabis whips the formula into a creamy texture, so that along with the nourishing, softening, and hydrating benefits, the mascara gives you the lashes you’ve always dreamed of. Not to mention that the mascara comes off with ease when you’re ready to wash it off.
Now, we’re not really talking about that stuff you’d roll in a joint or pack in a bowl. Cannabis produces two types of compounds, THC and CBD. THC is what will get you high, whereas CBD is a cannabinoid that will meet your skincare needs. The CBD oil used in beauty products is derived from hemp, rather than marijuana, so it is completely legal with or without a prescription.
So, with a low dose of CBD-rich cannabis oil, Milk was able to make the perfect mascara to those in need of both volume and conditioning, and in a way that doesn’t hurt animals.
“When we started talking about coming out with a fully vegan volumizing mascara with fibers, we knew we couldn’t use beeswax, a common binding component in mascara formulas,” the innovators at Milk share. “CBD-rich cannabis oil fuses the heart-shaped fibers to your lashes without fallout. Kush Mascara is the vegan way to get major volume and healthier-looking lashes.”
While Milk’s ingenious Kush Mascara will give you high volume and mesmerizing eyes, it’s not going to get you high. Your eyes will be striking but in no way dilated.
