I purchased the facial skin care set via their Etsy shop that consisted of pink clay mask and soap, nourish facial serum and facial toning elixir for $68.00 plus $7.50 shipping. The sea mist sea salt hair spray skin refresher in the lavender waves scent for &18.00 with reduced shipping of $5.50 and the dead sea clay soap for $9.00 with reduced shipping of $2.00. My grand total was $110.00.
My receipt indicated since the items were made in small batches it would take 3-6 "business days". I eagerly awaited my order.
A wonderful whiff of clean greeted me as I opened the box.
What did surprise me was the lack of "seals" on the packaging. That may have changed since my purchase.
The other was the closures didn't match. Not a big deal but set up in my all white cabinet the black top stood out like a sore thumb.
The other issue was the sprayers themselves seemed to be on the wrong bottles. The hydrate spray for the face came out stronger while the sea mist for my hair I had to keep pumping. "Sea mist" lavender get's a thumbs up!
The "pink clay mask" is a very fine powder that needs to be mixed well. The consistency will be little grainy.
I picked up the mixture with a small spatula and placed it on a stiff bristled "fan" brush to apply it to my face. It dried fairly quickly and crusty and I removed the mask with facial sponges. A washcloth will work just fine. For me, some old cosmetic industry training still sticks.
My absolute favorite product was the 1oz "nourish" restorative facial serum. At the time of my purchase "nourish" by itself it was $36.00 for 1 oz/ 29 ml size.
I also was very pleased with how this product dispensed. An eye dropper helps keep the product from picking up any residue you might have on your hands.
I was disappointed when I went to purchase "nourish" again that it had been discontinued and replaced with a new formulation called "Phoenix" I wrote to Herbivore expressing my disappointment wishing they had "nourish" and added "Phoenix" to the line up. It was my hope being a smaller skin care business they might make a batch of my beloved "nourish" 1 oz size in the round dropper bottle or better yet put back in their product line.
Here is to hoping Herbivore doesn't change their "hydrate" and "sea mist" sprays.
