In all my years of beauty blogging (that’s seven), I have finally discovered the best-ever beauty products. Herbivore Botanicals creates natural, cruelty-free skincare products that are simply, truly, utterly amazing.
The brand was founded by husband-and-wife-duo Julia Wills and Alex Kummerow in their Seattle kitchen in 2011. Julia wanted to make a soap that wouldn’t irritate Alex’s sensitive skin, and she started with an at-home soap-making kit. It wasn’t long before friends and family started requesting their own soaps from her, and the brand was born. Herbivore Botanicals has since been featured in the likes of Vogue, InStyle, Glamour and Nylon.
The Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask will transform your skin. It’s made with extracts of Brazilian white tourmaline gemstone (which brightens and illuminates skin) and pineapple and papaya enzymes (which exfoliate gently). It’s also got rice powder in it (one of my all-time favourite ingredients) which brightens, softens and soothes. Use it two to three times a week for 15-20 minutes and skin will be left looking in-croyable.
The Orchid + Camellia Youth Preserving Facial Oil which one customer says is “the best facial oil my skin has ever met.” Ingredients like orchid extract, jasmine, and camellia flower oil combine to give skin a lovely glow without feeling oily. It’s packed with antioxidants and fatty acids from Omega 3 and 6 oils, which protect against premature ageing. All you need is a few drops on cleansed skin, and it will instantly feel luminous, moisturized and smooth.
All products are created without synthetic ingredients, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, animal testing, mineral oils and petroleum.
Do yourself a favour and order some of these goodies ASAP. Check out Herbivore Botanicals’ website here.
