Herbivore botanicals

A natural, cruelty-free skincare brand that provides results you can see and feel. All product formulas are original, created and tested by the team at Herbivore Botanicals, on real people — never on animals and always from scratch. All of the products have an emphasis on organic, high quality and food-grade ingredients to help restore your skin.

Blue Tansy – AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask

Blue Tansy - AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask

Made from a combination of superstar ingredients (blue tansy, fruit enzymes and white willow bark), the Herbivore Blue Tansy clarifying and cooling gel mask is a skincare game-changer. The blue tansy, which is naturally high in azulene, not only gives the mask its distinct pretty blue shade but is also anti-inflammatory to reduce any redness or irritation on the skin. The fruit enzymes present, such as papaya and pineapple, help to exfoliate dead skin cells. Lastly, the white willow bark helps to decongest and unclog those pores leaving your skin soft and rejuvenated.

Brighten – Pineapple Enzyme + Gemstone Instant Glow Mask

The micronised Brazilian tourmaline gemstone present in the mask helps increase circulation while the pineapple and papaya enzymes work to resurface and exfoliate. With continued use, the mask leaves the skin feeling a lot fresher, smoother and more radiant.

Facial Oil

Lines, premature or not, are a big no no in our books. Made from a blend of botanical oils and cell renewing coQ10, the Phoenix Facial Oil leaves the skin feeling soft and silky to the touch. To further prevent signs of wrinkles and the like, Herbivore’s Phoenix Facial Oil also uses rosehip and chia seed Co2 oils to allow for deeper absorption of vitamins and nutrients, which also help to lock in moisture.
