Herbivore Botanicals

Monday, 14 May 2018

Herbivore is a brand I've been eyeing for quite some time as I have seen it all over on Instagram and it seems like an awesome brand. I love that their products are made with coconut water and I really dig the packaging too, so simple yet elegant. I've picked up some of the best selling products to try and I just want to say that it is wonderful companies like Herbivore do travel size products so I could try them out without "breaking the bank". All Herbivore products come in transparent glass bottles even their travel sized products so we can definitely re-use the bottles and save the environment. 

I just want to put it out front that the products do not "wow" me, they are not bad but I've tried better. Bear in mind that this is my personal opinion so if they work for your skin then that's great and I am happy for you but for me, they don't live up to the hype and I'll tell ya why...

Let's start with the product I actually quite like which is the Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist. It's hydrating, it has a fine mist and it feels refreshing which is wonderful but it smells nothing like roses, straight up honey if I'm honest, don't get me wrong, there's nothing bad about that, it's just that I'm not a big honey fan. I use it after cleansing and I do like how it feels on my skin, very light and comfortable so I do recommend checking it out if you are looking for an all natural face mist/toner. 

I love a good sea mist for my hair which is why I am so excited for this Sea Mist Coconut + Sea Salt Beach Wave Hair Mist (their products have the longest names ever). Unfortunately, it doesn't do much for my hair at all. The only thing I like about it is the scent. It smells so coconutty and so pleasant. It leaves my hair smelling good all day long but sadly, that's about it. It doesn't give me the volume I need, it doesn't give me the texture and It doesn't give my hair that beachy wavy look. It does make my hair pretty soft but I need more volume than being soft so I will not buy it again. 

As for Lapis Balancing Facial Oil, it's best for oily skin peeps I think but for me, it's not hydrating enough. I know that a lot of people want to know the differences between Lapis and Sunday Riley Luna and let me tell you now, I much prefer Luna because it's more moisturising and may I just say that I don't care for the scent of Lapis, it makes me kinda nauseous for some reason. On a positive note, Lapis sinks in instantly and it doesn't leave any greasy residue so if you have oily skin, you have found your gem. 

Last but not least, is something I was most excited about - Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask. I got this and the Lipis face oil in a kit actually as it was such a good value kit but I have to say, this mask makes my skin a little dry after so I'm not sure about it. It has the same smell as the face oil which I don't particularly like but I do enjoy the lotion to gel texture and the fact that it sinks really fast, almost too fast and I feel like I need another layer or something. It doesn't tingle as much so if you have sensitive skin you can use it with no problem. It does leave my skin quite soft but other than that I do not see any visible result. In my opinion, this mask is best for people who have oily or blemish-prone skin types and for dry skin peeps, it might not be the ideal mask option. 

All and all, Herbivore is somewhat a disappointment for me. The products do not work well for my skin and I will not repurchase any of the products here but I really like the packaging, so simple yet elegant, and I love that they use coconut water as an ingredient so if you are curious, try it because they do sell minis and I so appreciate that. 

Have you tried Herbivore? Which is your favourite product?
