Milani Cosmetics launched their first cannabis collection in January of this year to compete with other DTC (direct to consumer) brands who have launched cannabis infused products. The Green Goddess Collection features 3 skincare products aimed at hydrating, soothing and prepping skin for makeup. Like E.L.F.’s Hit Lit Collection, Milani’s Green Goddess Collection uses one main cannabis derivative Sativa Seed Oil, has their hero ingredient. Here’s what comes in the collection:
- Green Goddess Glow Oil
- Green Goddess Sleeping Mask + Primer
- Green Goddess Transforming Lip Balm
Milani Cosmetics claims the collection will soothe and calm stressed out skin due to the infused with Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil. It’s widely known that Sativa Seed Oil is a powerhouse ingredient, rich in essential omega fatty acids. It is known to be fast absorbing and provide extended hydration. Here’s a break down of the key ingredients in the Green Goddess Collection:
I really am enjoying this entire line. Most of all I really love the Transforming Lip Balm. It’s very hydrating and it also leaves your lips with a beautiful natural pink tint that seems like it works with any skin tone. The Sleeping Mask + Primer is very interesting. I’m not sure how I feel about sleeping with it as I have like to do my skin treatments (i.e. retinol, vitamin c, etc.) at night and don’t know how I feel about adding the Sleeping Mask to the mix. However, I do like the results when I apply it a few hours before I’m ready to do my makeup for the day (like with my morning skincare routine). In my video, I actually demostrate how to apply the Green Goddess Sleeping Mask + Primer
All in all, I’m enjoying the Collection while I have it but don’t see myself reordering this set. I really like the novelty of the oils and balms but don’t feel like it fits into my day to day skincare regimen in a meaningful way. I think the set is a perfect gift for someone who is seeking to experiment with skincare and wants to find the right regimen for them. I can very much see how Sativa Seed Oil is a perfect alternative for face oils for those that benefit greatly from them. I do believe this collection as well as the E.L.F. Cannabis Collection are very early in the cannabis beauty evolution and I’m looking forward to seeing what other products evolve out of this.
