With Christmas just around the corner we're scouting hard for the best and brightest skincare gifts - for a friend or you this holiday season. Read up on Herbivore Botanicals & enter to win a $40.00 Gift Certificate to their online store - details below.
If you are a Pinterest fanatic, there is no way you have missed out seeing the beautifully packaged products crafted by Herbivore Botanicals. I recently was lucky enough to try a few of their products and was totally blown away by their quality and attention to detail - so now I'm sharing. Here's, in their own words, what their company is all about:
We chose the following 5 products to try and here are our thoughts on them:
- Coconut Milk Bath Soak This is the partner for wintertime baths. It makes your bathtub smell like a tropical paradise with rich coconut milk and vanilla undertones. I love this one and would absolutely gift it to lady friends for Christmas.
- Lapis Facial Oil This product is really awesome. Let me start by saying I was really hesitant to try a facial oil. I have combination skin that is temperamental on any given day. I can be dry and breaking out simultaneously and the idea of oil on my face just seemed wrong to me. But, I know that drying products don't help either - plus I'm not getting any younger and want to give my skin the moisture it needs. What sold me on this was the combination of organic, anti-inflammatory ingredients. I've been putting it on before bed and waking up with considerably less redness - and it hasn't caused breakouts. For me, the natural scent was a little strong - but absolutely worth it for the results.
- Bamboo Charcoal Cleansing Bar Soap The Smell! This lush-smelling, beautiful, black bar of soap is rich with quality, skin-saving ingredients like bamboo charcoal, tea tree and bergamot essential oils. I love that you can use it on both your body and face - making it great for travel. It would make a great stocking stuffer.
- Brighten Facial Mask Again with the scents. This luxurious mask smells so fantastic. I've been putting in on and hopping in a coconut bath in the evenings. It's unique in that it comes in a powder form that you add a couple of drops of water to to make a paste. This space-saving feature I would assume also adds to the lasting-time of the product. Also great for travel.
Mens Face Elixir We couldn't test out Herbivore Botanicals without thinking about the guys. Since Tyler doesn't sport a beard, I thought this would be a good one for him to try. He often complains about dry skin in the winter months and this amazing, woodsy-smelling oil seemed like a great fix for him. He liked that the scent was light and not overpowering
Ok, so now that you know what we tried and what we thought of it, it's time for you to try it!
