Brand to Try: Herbivore Botanicals
A 100% natural skincare company that's widely available in stores, online, and has crazy good packaging to boot? Sign me up! Believe it or not, I actually discovered Herbivore Botanicals via a Pinterest pin that was lauding their gorgeous, modern branding.
Little did I know this skincare company would make a big splash on the scene a few months later! Founded in 2011 in Seattle, Herbivore started out as a small business only selling online. Nowadays, you can find their products stocked in Urban Outfitters, Madewell, and tons of boutiques and spas nationally. I love how their products look in the bathroom, but also love that everything in them is non-toxic and all-natural.
Picks to try? Their travel friendly skincare set is a great place to start, since you can try a bunch of products in one fell swoop. I'm also dying to try their jasmine body oil (I love anything jasmine scented) and their blue clay mask (home spa night, here I come).
