I love a good
clean beauty brand as much as the next person, but you know what I love even more?Ones that infuse their products with actual crystals. Crystals are such powerful tools that we have at our disposal to heal our bodies and shift our vibration, so putting them in skincare (safely) feels extra strategic. Sorry, can you tell I also practice Reiki? I digress. The brand in question today is Herbivore Botanicals, which believes strongly in the power of nature and its ability to provide us with the nourishment our skin needs.
The brand definitely has a few cult-loved formulas that are original, packed with nutrients, and 100% free of toxic ingredients. Need I say more? If you’ve ever wondered which of its products are truly the best and are always gone in a flash, you’re in luck. I spoke to the brand directly about its best sellers and what makes each of them a must in your daily
beauty routine. Whether you have acne-prone skin or are looking for something to pacify your dry winter complexion, keep reading below for all the Herbivore staples you should snag ASAP.
According to the brand, this is the one breakout treatment you haven’t tried yet. It really helps clear up blemishes, balance your skin’s oil production, and soothes redness with star ingredients such as blue tansy, squalane, and kukui nut oil. The secret is this oil’s ability to keep surface sebum in check while nourishing the skin’s barrier with hydration. This way, your skin doesn’t become dry and overproduce extra oil, which can lead to breakouts.
This pick for drier skin types remains a best seller for the brand because it replenishes and revives your complexion with rose-hip oil and CoQ10, which provides antioxidant protection.
I’m pretty much a sucker for anything with rose water in it, and I think you all are, too. That’s why the Pink Cloud Cleanser continually flies off the shelves over at Herbivore. The brand describes it as “the easiest, gentlest cleanser for all skin types that melts off makeup without stripping your skin’s natural oils.”
This moisturizer shouldn’t be described as anything other than dreamy. According to the brand, its popularity continues to grow because it’s a super-easy and gentle moisturizer you can use both in the a.m. and p.m. “It really hydrates the skin, gives it a natural glow, and protects your skin barrier with Tremella mushroom and squalane.”
For those with acne-prone skin, Herbivore made this gem just for you. “It really balances, hydrates, mattifies shine, keeps pores clear, and reduces their appearance with white willow bark, a powerful BHA.” It also features blue tansy, an ingredient that’s really having a moment in the world of skincare right now.
Any time I need an immediate boost, I reach for this vitamin C serum. Its glow-boosting properties are completely unmatched because it adds antioxidant-rich turmeric into the mix. The brand says it’s good for all skin types, including those with sensitivities, and it helps improve dark spots in record time.
Infused with Moroccan rose, coconut oil, and pink clay, this luxurious body scrub is guaranteed to make you feel like a million bucks. The brand thinks of this one as its most indulgent exfoliator that smooths skin, moisturizes, and leaves behind a soft, rosy scent.
Herbivore’s radiance-inducing mask comes courtesy of actual gemstones—seriously. It’s formulated with Brazilian white tourmaline, which naturally illuminates your complexion. Pineapple and papaya enzymes also work to gently resurface and exfoliate so your skin is left much smoother and brighter after use.
Although the brand’s Prism Glow Facial acts as a powerful resurfacing treatment, the addition of aloe gel and rose water helps soothe skin and leave it extra hydrated.
If you’re into face mists, this one happens to be top of the line. It’s loaded with hyaluronic acid, rose hydrosol, coconut water, and hibiscus extract to help soften your skin and reduce redness.
If retinol is a bit too strong for you, try the brand’s retinol alternative the Bakuchiol Smoothing Serum. It irons out fine lines and wrinkles while gently exfoliating and hydrating with Tremella mushroom.
Behold—another expensive-feeling body polish, this time infused with amethyst gemstones, Epsom salt, and jasmine sambac oil to leave skin feeling soft and your energy a lot calmer.
This is a great toner for oily or acne-prone skin. It’s infused with jasmine water, green tea, willow bark, and witch hazel to help keep skin looking its clearest on a daily basis.
Another great staple if you’re prone to redness. It contains CBD, shiitake mushroom, and ashwagandha root to help alleviate that while protecting against environmental stressors and providing supplementary moisture.
