Spotlight: Herbivore Botanicals Skincare

So can we talk about how obsessed I am with the Herbivore Botanicals skincare line? I have never in my life purchased a whole skincare line before. One day I was in Urban Outfitters buying their Pink Clay bar soap and the next day (more like a month) I found myself rolling the turquoise Lapis oil onto my fingers to apply to my face.

I’ve fallen into this great skincare routine where I use at least one Herbivore Botanicals product whether it is the Lapis Oil ($72) or the balancing toning elixir spray. I did a review of the Lapis Balancing Facial Oil a few weeks ago and even upgraded to the big daddy bottle. I’m hoping the oil lasts me for a few months considering how huge it is!

herbivore-2I never got around to reviewing the Balancing Toning Elixir spray ($12), but it goes on great after cleansing or doing a mask and smells divine like everything else I’ve used in the Herbivore Botanicals line. I’ve never been able to use toners without getting small little irritation bumps all over my face and for some reason, this one works fine. Also, the toning elixir spray is alcohol-free! I haven’t seen the balancing elixir on their website, but I know for sure they sell it in Urban Outfitters. The website does have other face mists that are available if you’d rather purchase directly from them.


The Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask ($48) is one of the best masks I have ever used. I read a few blog posts and reviews that claimed the ingredients on the packaging didn’t match up with the ingredients on the website, but apparently that problem has since been fixed. Please correct me if I’m wrong. There will be a full review of the Blue Tansy Mask along with before and after pictures very soon.

I think that the Herbivore Botanicals line is great for someone with acne prone skin (both hormonal + cystic) who is looking for some relief. Remember it’s still imperative to take care of the inside of your body so that it reflects on the outside. So don’t forget to eat as healthy as possible and drink plenty of water!

Come back Thursday for another ChelsiKay blog post. 🙂
