Seattle-born natural beauty brand Herbivore, which was created by husband-and-wife team Julia Wills and Alexander Kummerow, has been on Byrdie's radar for a few years now (it launched back in 2011). For a long time, avid fans have been able to get their favourite products shipped via the website, but now, at last, you can buy the hero products on Space NK (and try before you buy in-store).
Highly active and efficacious every ingredient included is there for a reason, there is no filler. Each includes essential vitamins, minerals, and botanicals and the packaging feels seriously luxe. And it probably goes without saying that each product is highly Instagrammable. While natural brands aren't particularly alternative these days, on its own website Herbivore sells rose quartz and jade rollers, crystals, tarot cards and even a spirit animal guide book that helps add to the intrigue of this (until now) under-the-radar brand.
If you haven't already, go check it out in Space NK or just take the plunge and treat yourself to one of our favourite products from the line-up below. You won't be disappointed.
Used for three nights in a row and containing fruit enzyme to exfoliate, along with Brazilian white tourmaline gemstone to boost skin circulation, this mask does a seriously good job of enhancing radiance. After the initiation you can drop down to just once or twice a week.
Deputy editor Shannon Peter is a fan of this vibrant oil, and her skin is glowy AF. A combination of oils including rose hip and neroli, along with CoQ10 which energises cells, this oil hydrates and kick-starts a dull, lazy complexion. It's not cheap, but a little goes a long way.
Sure, you can bathe in Epsom salts, but this aromatic balances the skin and draws out impurities, while the scent will leave you uplifted. Plus, it will look great on the edge of your tub.
If you struggle with dehydrated skin, this rosewater-infused moisturiser will plump out fine lines and leave skin pillowy soft. It also helps to prevent blemishes, downplay redness and boost your skin's ability to retain precious moisture throughout the day.
Okay, so this is only available on the brand's website, but since we know our readers love a jade roller, we wanted to show you this rose-quartz version. Rose quartz is thought to ease anxiety and boost feelings of self-love. Fancy incorporating a roller for lifting, de-puffing and sculpting into your weekly routine? Find out how here. ■
