Kushkush online is a platform dedicated to women who consume cannabis and are curious to learn more.

The founder, Jo Hope (a formidable businesswoman, I might add), started Kuskkush because she wanted to create a lifestyle platform that not only sells the most beautiful, premium cannabis related products, but also to help de-stigmatize cannabis use.

The brands mission is to cultivate a refreshing and inspired representation of cannabis culture in South Africa that educates, illuminates and shifts public sentiment.

Kushkush has curated a selection of the most beautiful but functional premium cannabis lifestyle products and nifty, specialised tools – everything you need to enjoy cannabis in real style.

Also available on the site is a selection of really cool beauty products like facial oils and skin rubs.

Kushkush sent me their best selling Kiskanu CBD Face Oil (R895 – BUY) to review & I like it so much; I’m giving one away.

The Kiskanu CBD Face Oil is super gentle and can be used on all skin types (even sensitive).

It works to deeply nourish the skin and uses only the finest, cold-pressed virgin, organic oils including sunflower, Argan, coconut and jojoba.

Rose Geranium oil has been added for its wound-healing properties and ability to soothe blemishes and inflammation while calming irritation. The anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties of this facial oil are useful in fighting acne and other skin irritations.

Hemp and calendula are both antispasmodic and can help with facial tension, headaches, achy jaws and more. Lavender provides anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties while aiding in wound and blemish healing.

Wild carrot is a gentle cell rejuvenator and an excellent first line of defense for supporting aging or environmentally stressed skin.  This lovely facial oil is high in Vitamins A and E to promote youthful skin through collagen formation, leaving skin looking lustrous and radiant.

How cool is the packaging?

I love the delicate, slightly floral scent of this oil which, no doubt, comes from the addition of the rose geranium in the formula – an ingredient I LOVE. It also absorbs really quickly, leaving the skin hydrated without feeling oily.

I apply mine by first warming the oil up in my hands, then gently pressing it onto my face, neck & décolletage. You could also add a pump of this to your regular moisturiser if your skin needs a boost of comfort & hydration. You can use it morning or/and evening.

When I use this oil at night, I like to include a short, relaxing jaw massage (I’m a clencher).

This is how I do it:

Working from the bottom of the chin upwards, along the jaw, I gently pinch the skin along the jaw on either side, repeating 6 times on each side. I find this really helps to ease my jaw clenching.

This is a really good choice of facial oil for someone looking for an all-natural product that addresses a host of various skin care needs from hydration to rosacea & skin sensitivity. It’s a great all-rounder to have in your beauty cupboard.


I have one Kiskanu Face Oil valued at R895 up for grabs.
