Herbivore Botanicals

First, let me start this off by saying that this is NOT a paid post. I repeat...NOT a paid post! 

I can't tell you how many times, I've gotten excited about a product after reading a great article proclaiming it's benefits only to read at the very bottom of the post, that it was in fact a paid post! So frustrating! 

I get it, everyone from celebrities to social media stars and a ton of bloggers make bank sharing themselves enjoying said product, often accompanied with a discount code for you to save too. But, the problem has become, at least for me, to know whether or not the product is actually good or if the author is just trying to peddle junk to make a buck!

Now, having said all that I will tell you that I'm an Amazon Associate but I buy all the goods that I recommend with my own hard-earned money. 

Let's get into it, shall we?

This week's one of our favorites that we've been using and testing for a while now, has some new goods

Every ingredient that we include in our products is there for a specific therapeutic reason. We do not use fillers of any kind, meaning that almost every ingredient in our products is an “active” ingredient. This results in pure, highly concentrated, and effective formulas that are a rarity in the skincare and cosmetics world today. All of our formulas are original, created and tested by us, on real people — never on animals and always from scratch. All of our products have an emphasis on organic, high quality, and food-grade ingredients.

Knowing that everything we put on our skin quickly absorbs into our bodies, we ethically source the finest raw natural materials the earth has to offer. With ingredients ranging from French pink clay to Brazilian gemstones, we formulate treatments that combine essential vitamins, minerals, and botanicals to restore skin to its optimum health and vitality.

In addition to creating products that give you noticeable results, we also create our products with personal rejuvenation and a little indulgence in mind. We believe that daily bathing and skincare rituals should be enjoyable — a way to carve out some much-needed downtime in your hectic routine. From thoughtfully designed packaging and labels that really allow our ingredients to shine through, to intoxicating scents and luxurious textures, we truly want you to love your skincare and bathing routines.
