I was introduced to Herbivore Botanicals by a very good friend of mine, and don’t you just love friends like that? Pink Cloud Rosewater Moisture Creme by Herbivore Botanicals gives me such a luminous, natural glow that I have fallen in love with it pretty quickly- I have done a video review of it over at my Instagram so it’s easier to see the effect on my skin! This is a lovely moisturizer that features aloe vera juice, kukui nut and sunflower seed oils, rice powder, rosewater, and white tea extract. The aloe vera and various oils help to bring moisture, rice powder helps to even out pigmentation, the rosewater acts as a toner (and makes this creme smell fantastic), and the white tea extract brings antioxidants to the party. Over all this moisturizer is great for the skin, deeply moisturizing, without being greasy or heavy on the skin. I also appreciate the price- at $48 for the 1.7 oz jar that will last quite a while, it’s super reasonable!
The only negative I could see with this creme is that I don’t think it would be appropriate all year around. During winter months or in colder/harsher weather, you might need a thicker moisturizer to get all the moisture you need. I will need to try when the weather is colder, really- during these hot summer months, this lightweight creme is perfect. It’s generally hard to find products that can be used all year around, so that’s just something to be mindful of in general. Using a product that’s inappropriate for the season or weather can get you off on a bad skin cycle- just as easily as using a product with ingredients that don’t work for your skin.
Overall, this moisturizer is a product that I am so happy to have in my routine. I really appreciate the natural glow it gives, as that just means less makeup needed to highlight my skin’s healthy beauty. I am a big believer in putting my effort (and money) towards skincare products rather than makeup products whenever I can. I’m a big fan of some other Herbivore products, so I will definitely have more reviews of their line!
Overall, I am a fan of this moisturizer, the only thing I am watching for is when my skin gets drier. It will be interesting to see what the difference is then!
