Herbivore Botanicals Face Masks Review

Herbivore Botanicals is a minimal, luxury brand that creates unique products for your face and body. Their products are made in their facility in Seattle, Washington. Here in Canada you can find some of their bath and body products in Indigo.

This is my second review of their face masks. This time last year, I reviewed their Activate, Brighten, and Blue Clay masks. But since then, they've adjusted their line up and introduced two new masks.

The Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask is totally different from the rest of their line up. All of their other masks are clay based and must be hand mixed with water to create a paste. But this is a gel like, liquid mask. Instead of purifying, this mask is perfect for gently exfoliating your skin.

Just like the rest of their products, the ingredients are pure, natural, and great for your skin.

The star of this mask, Blue Tansy Oil, is anti-inflammatory so it works to reduce redness and irritation. It's also what gives this mask the gorgeous, deep blue colour. There's also papaya and pineapple enzymes to exfoliate, willow bark to clarify, and aloe to hydrate and soothe.

But my favourite part is this mask is gentle enough for super sensitive skin. It's actually great for sensitive skin, because the Blue Tansy oil works as an anti-inflammatory, while the aloe is really soothing.

The second mask is a Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask. This is one of their classic clay based masks. But I'm disappointed with this one. Their other formulations are much more user friendly. They apply smoothly and are easily removed with a hot towel. But when I apply this one, it balls up and creates an uneven layer. And it's also really difficult to remove, even in the shower.

Despite those issues, the ingredients are still great for your skin. French Pink Clay makes up the foundation for this mask, as it's great for reviving and regenerating your skin. There's also rosehip for skin repair, and chamomile to soothe and de-puff.

In summary, I'd say the Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask is a winner. It's a simple, gentle, easy to use mask that makes my skin glow. But the Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask was a bit of a let down, and I expect more from this amazing brand.

What are your thoughts on Herbivore Botanicals?
