Herbal Dynamics Beauty
It's pretty tough these days to find ethical brands that uphold cruelty-free, paraben-free, vegan standards while still being affordable for most of us. That's why I want to introduce one of my favorite skincare companies that has somehow managed to do it. They create high- quality, all natural products that help your skin and don't hurt the environment! I don't know about you, but I have super sensitive skin so finding something without harmful chemicals with natural ingredients is a must. Here are a few of the products that I've been using regularly and officially can swear by!
Cacao & Chamomile Clearing Clay Mask - $24
Key Ingredients: Lavender | Salicylic Acid | Ginseng | Kelp
Purpose: Brightens natural skin tone, Deeply detoxifies, Soothes inflammation
If you're addicted to clay masks AND chocolate, look no further. HD has come up with a product that makes my inner girly girl's heart sing. This mask smells like hot chocolate and I would make a candle out of it if I could. My favorite part is that it doesn't feel really cake-y such as others that I've tried. It's very silky and light which means it won't take 3 bath towels and 30 minutes to take off. My favorite clay mask I've ever tried!
Vitamin C 25% Rejuvenating Serum - $22
Key Ingredients: Vitamin C | Hyaluronic Acid | Green Tea | Aloe Vera
Purpose: Brightens skin tone, Fights inflammation, Hydrates to reduce fine lines
When my skin gets really dry, all I want is to apply something that feels like it's soaking into my skin and really hydrating it. This serum immediately allows your skin to feel hydrated and appear brighter. To be honest, it's one of those products I kind of want to apply like 100x a day. But HD recommends twice a day, in the morning and at night. I get weird about seeing the word "acid" used in ingredients lists but have no fear, hyaluronic acid is simply a moisture- binding ingredient that we already have present in our body.
Rose Water Calming Face Toner - $20
Key Ingredients: Rose Oil | Chamomile Extract | Witch Hazel | Aloe Vera
Purpose: Soothes and calms skin, Instant hydration
Okay, I couldn't wait to save my favorite for last and have to talk about it now. For the size of the bottle, the price is just impossible to beat. Not to mention, the fragrance is much stronger on this one than a standard rose water which I can't get enough of. I have incorporated this into my skincare routine but I really recommend rose water before a meditation. The scent just works wonders for calming you and silencing the mind.
Mango & Macadamia Intense Body Balm - $26
Key Ingredients: Mango Butter | Shea Butter | Macadamia Oil | Pistachio Oil
Purpose: Hydrates for youthful appearance, Protects skin barrier, Perfect for very dry areas
When this body balm says intense, it means INTENSE. I would describe it as being similar to a vaseline but with a way better scent and without all the harmful, chemical ingredients. My elbows and knees to tend to get the driest and I've been applying this to those areas a few times a day. The moment it touches your skin, you feel a major difference. I can honestly say I have never had a more hydrating product in my life and I'm never letting it get away.
Shea & Squalane Rich Body Butter - $26
Key Ingredients: Mango Butter | Shea Butter | Pistachio Oil | Squalane
Purpose: Promotes healthy skin over time, Hydrates and softens, Perfect for any skin type
After applying the intense balm on my elbows/knees, this is what I use for the rest of my body. It (like everything else) smells incredible and feels like an extra intense lotion. It's just so rare to find a lotion or body butter that smells this amazing from natural ingredients. I love knowing that the stuff I'm putting all over my body isn't heavily scented with artificial junk. It's also fast- absorbing so you don't feel greasy for the rest of the day. It's perfect to keep in your purse or backpack!
I feel like I've been looking for a brand like Herbal Dynamics for awhile now, and I'm so thankful that I have found them! We can finally get quality products with natural ingredients without going completely broke. Each product has such a different scent and they're all super fragranced. If I had to choose a winner, it would definitely be the rose water because I have been using rose water before meditating for a couple years now and have never had one as scented as this! Plus, the fact that the bottle is huge and inexpensive. If you're looking for a brand that really promotes natural products for healthy skin, you have found your new go- to. I know I have!
