I try to use as many natural products as I can, so when I came across Herbivore Botanicals via Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, goop, I admit I was a bit intrigued. I am going through a goop/ Paltrow infatuation phase, buying all of her cookbooks and reading her website daily, so what ever she recommends is truth….right?
Well, I started seeing this brand via many other publications and other blogger’s instagram accounts as well and decided I needed to order some items to see what all the hype was about. After browsing their website and filling, then removing and then refilling my shopping cart, I decided to ask my boyfriend for a few of their items for Christmas (
Even though I received these items almost 4 months ago, I just got around to using them. I wanted to use them in our new apartment (which we moved into at the end of February) where we would have a nice, deep soaking tub. Let me tell you, my skin was living in coconut and coco rose heaven! I’m pretty sure I blew through the Jasmine body oil spray in 2 seconds, leaving my skin glowing, hydrated and silky smooth. (need to buy another bottle of this body oil ASAP).
The one product I am extremely loving is the pink clay soap. For some odd reason my back and my chest just randomly started breaking out (something about producing too much sebum?….idk) and it is hella annoying! I’ve tried
almost everything! Since I’ve started 1. working out more and 2. using this pink clay bar soap all over my body (concentrating on my chest and back) I have seen a BIG difference. I literally have absolutely no breakouts on my chest and back and I’m not just saying that (now to get rid of the pesky dark spots! ugh).
So since I started noticing this difference, I started reading up on the benefits of pink clay and found that pink clay is known for drawing out impurities amongst other things (read here and here). The other ingredients in this simple and non-drying bar of soap include Geranium essential oil which is an anti-inflammatory agent! (hence my breakouts going down and vanishing).
So if you’re in the mood for a body scrub (the Coco Rose body polish), a Coconut bath soak, an impurity cleaning pink clay soap or a calming body oil spray (Jasmine body oil) then head over to Herbivore Botanicals and start making your first purchase (or purchases)! Your skin will thank you and the glow will be amazing….I promise.
