I first came across Herbivore Botanicals in an Urban Outfitters in Downtown SF. I was immediately drawn to their little nook all because of how wonderfully decorated it was. The shelves were perfectly lined with their products along with crystals, geometric shapes, and A+ lighting so it’s pretty impossible not to miss.

Intrigued by their products, I scanned them one by one. I’m big on skincare just as much as I am with makeup. Right off the bat I found myself wanting to buy every single one of their products. I also admired the fact that they use natural ingredients and are cruelty-free (!!!).

Herbivore Botanicals was kind enough to send me two products to review. I gave myself at least a few months to test them out and see how well they fare.

Spoiler alert: I have nothing but good things to say about them. They certainly did not disappoint. No bias, no BS.

Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask is a truly natural AHA + BHA mask to clarify and gently resurface the skin.


  • It has a strong minty + herbal smell which I personally don’t mind but may be bothersome to others
  • Consistency is smooth, thin, and gel-like
  • Gives a tingly sensation upon application
  • You only need to apply a thin layer
  • It comes with a scoop which is a plus for me because I’d rather not dip my hands in the jar and pose the risk of bacteria contamination
  • My skin is noticeably brighter and smoother after washing it off
  • The redness of my tiny spots were reduced
  • Does not instantly get rid of pimples
  • Gently exfoliates the skin to get rid of dead skin cells



Sartorialust x Herbivore Botanicals
Phoenix Facial Oil Roller will dramatically rehydrate and rejuvenate skin at the cellular level. Leaves skin soft and silky with a renewed appearance and texture.


  • It has an orange-y tint but won’t stain your skin
  • My skin absorbs it well and leaves it hydrated
  • I apply this at night (sometimes in the morning) and I always wake up with brighter & smooth skin
  • Helps refresh and rejuvenate tired skin
  • The oil is not lightweight; Feels a little thick
  • Best applied when face is slightly damp


Ever since incorporating these two products in my skincare routine, my skin has significantly improved. I should’ve took before & after photos *face palm*. It’s much smoother and brighter than it was prior to using these products and I have Herbivore Botanicals to thank for that.

It was high time that I started taking skincare more seriously and I will definitely prioritize it more than makeup. Got any skincare recommendations? Leave them in the comments below!
