Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Mist Is A Luxurious Treat For Your Skin
The very first time I heard and visited Herbivore Botanicals website around April, I become totally obsessed and can not wait to try all of their products! The brand was launched and founded by Julia Wills and Alexander Kummerow back in 2011 at Seattle. Their personal approach, beautiful packaging and commitment to bring the effective (meaning they only use mostly 'active ingredients'), safe-green beauty products in the market amazed me. They started off with a cleansing-bar soap production, and later on the brand quickly expanding into various skincare and body care products.
After several months observation and tested all the various skincare products in market, so far I found that face mist/toner, face oils, serums and masks are the most effective and results-driven products that literally worth for every penny. For the first introduction with the brand, I chose to try their Rose Hibiscus Hydrating mist (since my face mist/toner is almost empty).
Herbivore Botanicals has several online stockists that ships globally, such as Urban Outfitters but I bought it directly from Herbivore Botanicals' website. I bought the small size, 60 ml/USD 16.00 (Rp. 216.000). As the shipping cost from U.S to Indonesia is quite hefty (around USD 20), I would suggest you to buy it collectively so you can share the additional customs' fee. After three weeks, the package neatly came through USPS delivery service. So far, I can say their delivery even faster than my Amazon's order. I was so excited to unbox the package and along with my face-mist, they also slipped their signature Pink Clay Cleansing Bar mini-sample (yay, thank you so much Herbivore Botanicals!).
This face mist, can also be used as face toner after using face cleanser. Simply spritz it into cotton-pads and dab it gently into your face. What I really love about this mist, it does not makes my skin irritated although I have a very sensitive skin. Instead, it gave me a very nice hydration and made my skin looks naturally dewy. After months of using this products, I feel it helps my skin's conditions improved. I noticed less visibility of fine-lines and reduced flaky skin around cheeks area.
They are using five-keys active ingredients for the mist: coconut water (to add natural-glow), hibiscus flower (to improve skin-tone), rose (to reduce redness and inflammation), aloe vera (to give an extra hydration) and witch-hazel (to reduce puffiness under eyes and refreshened the skin). I can feel the benefits from all those active ingredients every time I use the product. The subtle rose scent is not too much, and bring the luxury feels on my skin.
On daily application, I regularly use it after motorcycle-taxi (ojek) ride. I feel it freshen my skin instantly; I don't know why but it feels like the heat and pollution goes away. This product is definitely a must-have item in my beauty purse, and can be use as a finishing spray as well after makeup application to get that 'red-carpet glow' looks. If you are feeling dull and looking for something to accompany you every day, then this beautiful mist could be your new love.
