Herbivore Phoenix Oil: Review

The brand:

Natural, new, ‘clean’, vegan.

The product:

Rosehip based facial oil.

Who can use it:

Best for drier more mature skins, but my oily face loved it. Good for all.

Cruelty Free Status/ Vegan?:

Fully CF, and vegan.

Ingredients:

SIMMONDSIA CHINENSIS (JOJOBA) SEED OIL, ROSA CANINA (ROSEHIP) SEED OIL, LIMNANTHES ALBA (MEADOWFOAM) SEED OIL, SALVIA HISPANICA (CHIA) SEED OIL, COQ10, HIPPOPHAE RHAMNOIDES L (SEA BUCKTHORN) OIL, TOCOPHEROL (VITAMIN E), ROSA DAMANSCENA (MOROCCAN ROSE) ABSOLUTE, CITRUS AURANTIUM (NEROLI) ESSENTIAL OIL

Not in the ingredients:

mineral oil, synthetic ingredients, fillers

Problematic ingredients?:

Essential oils, so avoid if you don’t like those. I love them tho!

Fragrance?:

No added scent, but smells like essential oils. This was a very rosehip scent, that I found a bti overpowering at first to be honest, but doesn’t linger.

Packaging:

Dropper, that hasn’t leaked on me.

How to use:

Morning and/or night at the end of routine/serum stage. Added to moisturiser or on it’s own. I liked it in the evening.

How much:

£24 for 8ml or £75 for 50ml

The Good:

Full of essential fatty acids, so is going to immediately plump up your skin and make you look instantly good (most oils do). It’s a real skin ‘reviver’. This has a very good ingredients list, CoQ10 and vitamin E are lovely additions. If you’re more mature, then I’m sure this will be good on wrinkles and fine lines. For me, it was just hydrating and soothing and lovely! I used this up very quickly because it was my favourite facial oil for a few weeks, and it was such a tiny bottle.

The Bad:

I still wince at the price a bit, but it matches the inci list. A 50ml bottle would last you a LONG time.

Recommend?:

Yes, if you can afford it, and are looking for plumper skin. I would probably buy it again.
