Here's What You Should Know About Herbivore Botanicals Skincare

If you're looking for eco-friendly, sustainable skincare products, Herbivore Botanicals has likely popped up in your searches. Founded in 2011 in Seattle, the brand's official website states that "Herbivore believes in the power of nature to bring tangible results you can see and feel. We make our products, ingredients, and packaging as gentle on the planet as they are on our bodies" (via Herbivore Botanicals).

Over the past decade, Herbivore has expanded to offer a wide range of skincare and beauty products, which can be purchased at major retailers including Sephora, Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and Amazon in addition to Herbivore's official page.

According to The Derm Review, Herbivore is also committed to being 100% cruelty free. It has been certified by both PETA and Leaping Bunny. In addition to not testing on animals at any point in their product development, Herbivore doesn't sell their products in any countries that allow animal testing.

Herbivore Botanicals prides itself on its commitment to being sustainable and cruelty-free, and the brand also donates 15% of its sales to the ACLU (via Honest Brand Reviews).

These are Herbivore Botanicals best selling products

Herbivore Botanicals has expanded its line over the past decade and, at first glance, it can definitely be overwhelming to decide which products to purchase. If you're trying Herbivore for the first time, you may want to look into their three best selling products, as reported by The Derm Review.

The first is Bakuchiol Serum ($54), which is described as "a naturally derived retinol-alternative serum to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while sealing in hydration" (via Herbivore Botanicals).

Then there's Lapis Face Oil ($72), which won a 2020 Glamour Readers' Choice Beauty Award for Best Natural Skin Care Product. The face oil contains Azulene, an organic compound that "is known to soothe dry or irritated skin, reduce the appearance of redness and leave the skin feeling more balanced."

The third best seller is the Blue Tansy Mask ($48), which is made from fruit enzymes, white willow bark, aloe, and blue tansy essential oil and is designed to ease redness and irritation on the skin.

Honest Brand Reviews highlighted far more pros than cons when it comes to Herbivore Botanicals. But the two cons are that customers have reported certain products have caused breakouts and others had issues with absorption when using Herbivore's oil-based products. However the outlet notes that any skincare product can cause breakouts and Herbivore has a 30-day return policy than can be used if you experience any of these issues.
