Why Facial Oil?

We get this question a lot: Why oil? Wouldn't that clog my pores or make my skin way too oily?

Let’s talk about it!

Oftentimes after using strong facial cleansers or products with harsh chemicals, skin is stripped of its natural oils, causing it to overcompensate in oil production or become dehydrated and unbalanced.

That’s why our skin needs good old fashioned MOISTURE. And oils are the most concentrated moisturizers available (a little bit goes a long way!). In contrast to traditional cream moisturizers and lotions, which tend to be high in water and emulsifying agents but low in actual effective ingredients, our facial oils contain no fillers and are formulated with only effective natural ingredients.

Herbivore’s facial oils are made with 100% natural, cold-pressed oils — such as jojoba, rosehip, and sea buckthorn — that thoroughly hydrate skin without clogging pores.

Our carefully chosen oils absorb easily to get moisture, vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants into your thirsty skin. They also form a natural lipid barrier to lock moisture in and protect against dryness and heat in the environment. Pretty radical, huh?

In short, skin (oily or not) needs moisture and nutrients! And quality oil is the most effective way to get it.

Now the only question is: Which of our facial oils is right for you?

I’m really interested in trying the Lapis for my acne-prone/sensitive skin, but I’m always nervous to spend a lot of money without knowing if it will work for me. I was thinking about purchasing the roller as a tester, but it seems kind of difficult to use as opposed to using my hands to put on the oil. Do you have any tips for using the rollers?
