Herbivore Botanical’s products are natural, vegan and cruelty free so, obviously, we love them. But when the skincare brand throws real, crushed up amethysts—a gemstone believed to relieve stress, soothe irritability and balance hormones—into their Crushed Amethyst Exfoliating Body Scrub, you know we’re going to rub it all over.
Purple on the outside and gently exfoliating on the inside, this scrub’s formula is made with intoxicatingly divine jasmine sambac oil to hydrate our skin. A lot. Plus, it smells luxuriously good. A healthy helping of virgin coconut oil, a fatty acid that’s typically part of our skin’s natural makeup, works overtime to soothe dry skin, while providing extra hydration and then, there’s our new favourite gemstone. Finely ground up, this energy healer eliminates dirt, grime and dead skin cells, leaving our body silky soft.
All we have to do is massage a handful over our rough and dry spots (yup, we’re looking at you elbows, knees and shins), wait a minute or two to let the goodness soak in and rinse off. So powerfully effective, we don’t even need to apply lotion after we’re finished. One more reason why we’re adding easy-to-use to the list of reasons we love this brand. And now, we think you will too.
