Discovering and falling in love with a new brand is truly a satisfying moment. Finding a miracle product begs the question: does this brand offer other items I’d like? You begin to stalk the brand and before you know it, your online cart is full. When I think of a brand that continuously impresses me, inspiring me to try several more of their products, it’s Herbal Dynamics. For each product, Herbal Dynamics provides a very transparent breakdown of their ingredients. I appreciate their in-depth explanation of benefits each ingredient has on the skin. You may have read my past blog about Herbal Dynamics’ Rose Water Calming Face Toner, where I discuss how much I adore the product. The Rose Water Calming Face Toner was the first Herbal Dynamics product I added to my collection; it’s truly the product that made me a loyal fan of Herbal Dynamics.
I’ve received the incredible opportunity to work directly with Herbal Dynamics, to try some “new-to-me” products and voice my honest reviews. Herbal Dynamics prompted me to choose three products from their website. My choice of products reflect which items I felt would work best for my particular skin type. I was sold on a trio of products, I knew could be used together effectively. The three products I opted for are the CollagenR8™ Restorative CoQ10 Facial Toner, RevitAge™ Replenishing Squalane & Argan Oil Serum and the Prickly Pear & Vitamin C Daily Face Moisturizer.
I have a soft spot for brands offering product lines that work flawlessly together. This gives consumers the creativity to develop their own regimen.
I’ve been using the Herbal Dynamics products I picked, all together, both morning and night for the past week. I’ve developed a 3-step regimen utilizing each item, which has proven to be quite beneficial to my skin.
The first product I use in the 3-step regimen is the CollagenR8™ Restorative CoQ10 Facial Toner. Per Herbal Dynamics website, the key ingredients in this product are Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera Extract, Cucumber Extract, Papaya Extract and Chamomile Extract. Of these key ingredients the Coenzyme Q10 and Papaya Extract are what influenced me to choose this product. Coenzyme Q10 is known to help regenerate cells, support collagen and cellular metabolism. Collagen is a huge skin must-have as it encourages overall healthier looking skin by increasing skin’s elasticity and reducing wrinkles/fine lines. What I found most desirable about the papaya extract is it accelerates the shedding of dead skin cells; which provides you with a more radiant and even complexion.
The toner itself has a light, but floral, fragrance that just smells super clean. The bottle itself is 4 fl oz which is quite a generous amount of product in my opinion for the affordable price tag of $24; Especially since a little goes a long way. I use the toner by grabbing a fluffy cotton facial pad and lightly dousing it with product. I then wipe the facial pad in outward-circular motions, avoiding my eye area. It goes on smooth and dries quickly. Toners I have experienced in the past have a heavy, sticky texture that isn’t too comfortable on the skin. This product dries quickly because it absorbs amazingly into skin. Since I’ve been using this toner, my skin looks extremely healthy. I’ve also noticed that makeup settles better in any fine lines I have, which I contribute to this toner tightening my skin. If you’re looking for a toner that does its job, this is the product for you. The CollagenR8™ Restorative CoQ10 Facial Toner is also the perfect precursor to using the RevitAge™ Replenishing Squalane & Argan Oil Serum.
The second product I use in the 3-step regimen is the RevitAge™ Replenishing Squalane & Argan Oil Serum. I’m huge fan of serums. They are a skincare item I believe in 100%. I’ve been wanting to try out one of Herbal Dynamics Serums for a while now, so the opportunity to finally test one gave me much excitement. Again, I had much interest in the serum’s awesome key ingredients. They include Squalane, Organic Myrrh Oil, Organic Tiare Flower Extract, Organic Avocado Oil, Organic GrapeSeed Oil and Organic Argan Oil. The oils featured in this serum are organic, which made me feel good about what I was putting on my skin. Organic Myrrh Oil is an ingredient that stood out to me. It’s a precious resin that’s been used for centuries; so you know its properties have been coveted for some time now. With the winter season drying out my skin, the idea of this oil soothing chapped and cracked skin was something I needed in my life.
What I’ve come to love while testing this serum, priced at $30, is the packaging. The gorgeous emerald green, glass bottle features a dropper cap which makes the serum application user friendly. You’re advised to only use 2-3 drops of the oil at a time. With the glass dropper, you’re able to easily dispense the recommended amount of product. I warm it up by rubbing it in cleansed hands before massaging the serum onto my face. The texture is extremely soft. The amount of hydration this serum provides to face is out of this world. It locks in the hydration and makes me skin look supple. I also find the natural oil production of my skin to be lessened which is great and keeps my makeup from sliding off my face. This is all thanks to the squalane ingredient that contains properties like natural sebum, which helps balance oil production. This serum is a great base for the final step, using the Prickly Pear & Vitamin C Daily Face Moisturizer.
The third product I use, to finish off the 3-step regimen, is the Prickly Pear & Vitamin C Daily Face Moisturizer. In my experience, all skincare regimens tend to end with a moisturizer. Every individual should own a moisturizer. If you don’t, Herbal Dynamics Prickly Pear & Vitamin C Daily Face Moisturizer is a terrific choice. The moisturizer is affordable at $24, which impresses me since it features some powerful ingredients. The key ingredients include Vitamin C, Prickly Pear, Hyaluronic Acid, Resurrection Plant, Watermelon Extract and Oarweed Extract. As included in the moisturizer’s name, the prickly pear ingredient really caught my attention. Prickly pear has been quite trendy recently; you may have seen an abundance of social media photos depicting bright magenta prickly pear cocktails. However, I’d take this moisturizer over a cocktail. Prickly pear is a type of cactus. Everyone knows cacti live in desert-like environments, so they are champions of water retention. Who doesn’t want their skin to retain hydration? This moisturizer helps the skin retain water, so skin always looks supple.
This product smell extremely fresh and feels like velvet on the skin. It doesn’t feel oily or heavy on the skin. It is lightweight which is an attribute I always look for in a moisturizer. Shockingly, using only 2-3 pumps of this product is more than enough. This moisturizer will last me a good time which is always a plus. The minute I put this moisturizer on my face, my skin feels refreshed. After a long day of wearing my makeup, my skin is tired. It desires some hydration, which is why this moisturizer has become a crucial step in my skincare routine. I would definitely re-purchase this moisturizer and recommend it to a friend along with the above toner and serum. These products work together as a team to achieve one shared goal: healthy, hydrated and smooth-looking skin.
