Herbivore Serums: A Guide

Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum and Bakuchiol Retinol-Alternative Smoothing Serum, both help to plump, hydrate, and improve the texture of the skin, and each offers their own unique benefits and targeted concerns.

Prism Serum is our bestselling exfoliating serum. It works to break down dead skin and impurities with gentle botanical acids, helping to clear the skin and prevent breakouts. The formula contains White willow bark-derived beta hydroxy acid and Fruit-derived alpha hydroxy acids that reveal bright, radiant skin and boost cell turnover. Unlike physical exfoliants, they’re gentle enough to use on sensitive skin. 

Prism Serum’s soothing aloe helps to cool and shrink the appearance of pores and revive the skin with deep hydration while calming rosewater softens the skin and reduces the appearance of redness. The result after using Prism Serum (especially when used consistently) is fresh, even-toned, smooth, calm and glowing skin.

We recommend using Prism Serum with Lapis Facial Oil if you have sensitive skin, Phoenix Face Oil if your skin is dry or mature, Emerald CBD Glow Oil if your skin can be reactive, and Orchid Face Oil for a luminous glow.

Bakuchiol is our youth-boosting serum. It provides comparable benefits to retinol with babchi extract, an uber-gentle botanical with divine purple flowers that works to smooth the skin’s texture and minimize the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, without the irritation retinol can often cause. 

Bakuchiol’s formula includes blueberry stem cells, which provide the skin with a ton of antioxidants that guard against damage and accelerated aging. Tremella mushroom dramatically hydrates the skin for plump, youthful skin. Amethyst extract gives this formula a calming metaphysical vibration to reinforce the ritual aspect of your skincare routine. 

Bakuchiol and Prism Serum can be used together or with any of our facial oils to achieve a range of desired results including fresh, exfoliated skin, moisture, smoothness, and more even-toned, youthful-looking skin.
