Hey everyone! I know I’ve been AWOL this summer, but I’ve been interning all summer (thankfully paid). I’m back and I have so many posts coming your way. My June skincare routine will be posted next Monday and I have some really exciting products to share.
I have been trying herbivore products for the past three weeks. I bought two value sets:
This includes their resurfacing clarity mask and their Lapis balancing facial oil
I LOVED the facial oil. Has a very strong smell, but it was light and I really felt like my active pimples time on my face was cut in half.
The face mask gives off the same smell, it’s a fairly thin mask with a dark blue color. I felt like this didn’t really affect my skin but it was a nice cooling mask for when my skin was just looking kind of dull and tired.
If you’re anything like me then you get super excited when a product has the word “glow” in it. I was initially really excited to try on this set versus the clarifying one. It comes with a moisturizer, their regenerating facial oil, a face mist, and a “instant glow” mask. I really enjoyed their face mist, It has a VERY strong rose scent, but the feel of it is so refreshing. The mask was very lightweight and did make my skin glow, however overall I’d say none of these products changed my skin dramatically over the course of a month. I hardly reach for the regenerating face oil (because I adore their balancing one), and the moisturizer is nice and light weight, but I hate fragrance in my moisturizers (personal preference)
Top 3 herbivore products
1. Lapis Oil Balancing Facial Oil
2. Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist
3. Brighten Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask
Worth the splurge?
I think both value sets contain a fair amount of product for the price. I think that although the hydrate and glow collection had more, I personally found a lot more benefit from the clarifying duo. If you do not have acne prone skin like mine it might not appeal to you.
Herbivore overall has some nice light products that really feel luxurious. There were some hits and misses, but these products are not agitating at all and a great brand to dabble in (which is why these value sets are so amazing) do beware of the strong fragrances most of these products contain. If you can get past the strong perfume, herbivore contains some promising products and I’m excited to see them grow in the future.
