Lapis | Orchid | Phoenix | Facial Oils-Herbivore Botanicals
We love us some Herbivore Botanicals. This small company based out of Seattle has grown leaps and bounds since our giveaway with them a year ago. It’s been fun to watch them grow within the URBN community, as they are now carried at two of our four stores (Free People, and Urban Outfitters). Whats so great about these facial oils you ask? Lets talk about Concentrated Moisture. In contrast to traditional cream moisturizers and lotions which tend to be high in water and emulsifying agents but low in effective ingredients HB’s facial oils contain no fillers and are formulated with only effective natural ingredients. They absorb easily to get moisture, vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants into your skin. Oh yeah, and everything from Herbivore Botanicals is 100% Natural.
