Prism Glow Potion Full Size, BALANCE & SOOTHE Lapis Oil, and SMOOTH & BRIGHTEN Orchid Oil
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This potent potion blends a rainbow of fruit acids—bilberry lactic, sugar cane glycolic, orange peel citric, and apple malic—with rose water, aloe, sodium hyaluronate, and kakadu plum, a potent source of vitamin C. The lightweight exfoliating serum gently smooths, soothes, brightens, and plumps the appearance of skin.
- A calming dose of azulene-rich blue tansy reduces the appearance of redness while encouraging balanced hydration.
- Get a dewy glow with lush floral oils and skin-smoothing squalane. Orchid extract and jasmine sambac oil soften while smelling divine.

By ethically sourcing the best ingredients the planet has to offer, Herbivore Botanicals creates good-for-you products that uplift the mind and benefit the body.
Looking for ways to help Alex’s sensitive skin, Julia turned to her training in natural remedies to create a gentle soap. It was so effective, they combined Alex’s design skills with Julia’s plant knowledge, and Herbivore Botanicals was born.
Favorite tradition? A: Birthday trips! Julia and I usually head to the desert since our birthdays are in December and April, both particularly rainy months in Seattle where we live.
Wake up routine? J: Drink water and chai tea, then do some deep breathing, meditation, or yoga if I have time.
A: I like to do a crossword in bed to wake up my brain and take my miniature poodle Monte for a walk to wake up my body. Then an Earl Grey tea—always iced!
Wind down routine? J: Take a bath.
A: Walk the dog, play guitar—really anything to calm my mind so I can prepare for sleep.
Introvert or extrovert? J: Introvert.
A: I’m a wannabe introvert because I like the mystery, but I’m an obvious extrovert. No mystery here!
Theme song? “Crystal” by Fleetwood Mac.
A: “I Feel It Coming” by The Weeknd. I listen to it before anything that has me feeling nervous—it pumps me up!
Happy place? J: The beach.
A: Out in nature. The woods, the beach, the mountains—natural beauty inspires me!
Worst skincare habit someone could have (and maybe they don’t realize)? J: Not reading ingredients and not wearing SPF.
