I’ve decided to go all vegan with my skin care and had a recommendation for Herbal Mineral on etsy. I decided to purchase some stuff that I needed and give them a shot.
I placed my order on 5/16/10. Five days went by and I hadn’t received a shipping notice so I sent an email inquiring if my order was shipping any time soon. According to their shop policies all orders are shipped within three business days. I never got an email back or shipping information or tracking but did notice that the status on etsy was changed to ‘shipped’. I received my order on 5/27/10.
I ordered several things:
Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
Ingrown Hair Dissolver
Bright Eye Illuminator
Micro-Dermabrasion Buffing Cream
Cocoa Sun Balm-SPF 45
Organic Nail Oil
Natural Glow Gift Set
I also received a free gift of the Green Skin Oil…..sweet!
Everything was wrapped well except for the Ingrown Hair Dissolver which leaked a little bit. It was in it’s own little baggie with the Organic Nail Oil so it wasn’t a big deal.
I’ve tried several of the products and really like them so far!
The Vitamin C Miracle Pack is awesome…I’ve used it the past two nights. It comes in powder form and you mix it with the Acai Berry Hydrating Serum. Supposedly the vitamin C lasts longer in powder form which is why it’s kept separate. Its was easy to use and I noticed a difference after the first night.
I just had my waxing done and the Ingrown Hair Dissolver seems to be working. It’s in a roller ball appplicator that’s easy to use. You can also use it as an acne spot treatment.
The Bright Eye Illuminator is a good eye balm, but I wouldn’t use it as an eye shadow base as I think it’s too emmolient. It’s a nice night time treatment, though.
The Micro-Dermabrasion Buffing Cream is fabulous! I used it last night and followed it up with a mask and the Green Skin Oil. My skin looked super fresh and glowy this morning. I’ll admit that I was a little freaked out about putting oil on my face instead of a cream but it was actually quite lovely. I imagine I’ll get a lot of use out of this stuff in the winter as well.
I have several more products to try and will update when I’ve had a chance to review them. So far I am very impressed with all of the products that I’ve tried. Check them out!
**Edited to add new reviews!
Coco Sun Balm SPF 45-Hmmmm. This stuff shows up pretty white on my skin. I know that’s how the protection works but it was VERY creamy and thick. I didn’t mind it too much but I bet it would be too heavy for a lot of people. It seemed to work!
Organic Nail Oil-I love this stuff. I’ve been using it every night and am noticing a huge improvement in my cuticles and nails. I wash my hands all day long so I can use all the help that I can get!
