Herbivore are definitely an “Instagram made me buy it” brand. Their luxury oils and creams that look good enough to eat, are all over Instagram at the moment.

The main product that seems to be in everyone’s favour is the enchanting blue coloured Lapis oil. Well obviously I had to try it and a couple more of their products!

Lapis oil is a squalane based oil containing blue tansy and is designed for those with oily, blemish prone skin. After using this oil on and off for a few weeks I can confirm the hype is justified! It’s amazing! I think this would suit any skin type. I’ve been using this oil last in my routine on a night on top of moisturiser. I’ve had no issues with pilling. I’ve found 3-5 drops rubbed between my hands is enough. The oil seems to loosen up a bit when I do this. I’ve then been patting the oil gently on my face and neck. It’s completely not greasy and absorbs beautifully. I’ve found it calms my skin if my acne is flared up. I’ll definitely be purchasing the larger bottle of this oil when my current one runs out. 

The second product I’ve been using is the Jasmine Green Tea Toner. Again this is aimed at oily / combination skin. I was a bit worried about the fragrance of this, as some scents give me migraines. Thankfully I’m absolutely fine with this! It’s got a gorgeous Jasmine smell but it’s not overpowering at all. The spray itself is super refreshing and hydrating. I’m using this most in a morning after cleansing. Another hit for me!

The third Herbivore product I’ve fallen in love with is the Phoenix Regenerating oil. This oil is designed to hydrate and rejuvenate skin to leave it glowing! I’ve been using this on the same way as Lapis, on an evening, after moisturiser and applied in the same way. It’s got a stunning light floral fragrance. My complexion the day after use has looked amazing! Well hydrated and youthful. Another fabulous product from Herbivore that I’ll be buying again! 

So all in all, I’m in love with Herbivore at the moment! I’m definitely wanting to try more from this brand (Moon Fruit Superfruit Night treatment and Blue Tansy Mask I’m looking at you 👀).
