After running out of my body scrub, I went on the hunt for a new one, and ran into Herbivore Botanicals. An American natural cosmetics brand, started from the Seattle kitchen of the founders, for me it was love at first sight. The simple chic packaging with rose and coconut infused products were pretty much everything a girl could wish for. Since I was new to the brand, I bought a couple little things to try out, and I can honestly say they make some of the loveliest products out there (trust me, I’ve tried!).
HERBIVORE COCO ROSE
Over the summer I’ve gotten quite addicted to face mists, and as soon as I saw this little bottle on the site I knew I had to have it. I mean, a hydrating coconut water face mist? Doesn’t that just sound heavenly for a hot day. The ingredients are all natural and beautifully soothing and hydrating, from aloe vera to witch hazel and hibiscus petals.
It has a lovely fine mist that you can spray on your face as a quick bit of extra hydration in the afternoon, without having to worry about ruining your makeup. (In fact, I find that it gives my face a lovely glow if it’s starting to look a bit chalky). The only downside is that the mist is so fine that it’s easy to accidentally breath it in, so I always make sure to hold my breath while I spritz!
This scrub is actually what spurred the entire haul, and boy am I happy that I got it. I’m rather picky when it comes to scrubs, and tend to prefer the natural ones, since I can’t stand the plastic micro beads. Coco Rose is a sugar based scrub, meaning that it’s super fine but effective and melts on your skin in the shower. The virgin coconut oil means that it’s not only exfoliating, but moisturizing as well. It leaves your skin feeling amazingly silky smooth, and the rose coconut scent is subtle and lovely. Honestly the best scrub I’ve ever used!
(The only downside is that despite being simplistic and gorgeous, the packaging can sometimes be a little leaky. So be careful where you place it not to get oil stains anywhere.)
Have you tried anything by Herbivore?
