I’m somewhat of a natural cosmetics junkie – always ready to try the latest DIY tonic or small-batch soaps. Whether makeup or bath bombs, as long as they’re natural and cruelty-free, I’m always willing to give them a try. So when I stumbled upon the vegan Etsy-based skincare Herbivore Botanicals, I knew I was sold.
Featured in an Etsy shopping guide for Father’s Day, I scooped up a men’s gift set for my hubby. “It’s an early Father’s Day present!” I told him. “But we don’t have kids” he protested. Four-legged babes count – don’t they?! Besides, I thought it would be more apt for him to try the line as it’s meant for toning the skin of those with facial hair, something I’m thankful I don’t qualify for.
So what did he think? It was love at first splash!
David’s set included an aftershave, full-sized soap and sample all dressed to impress in a minimalist cloth bag and uber trendy chevron tag. He was delighted that the Shave Tonic has a slight hint of coconut scent and was assuredly burn-free. The Green Clay soap softened his skin without leaving it overly dry or weighed down. He says that thanks to this set he’s ditching his other soap and aftershave – a big step for a guy who is loyal to brand and daily ritual.
So should you be looking for a gift for this upcoming Father’s Day, or would like to shower your man with earth and skin friendly products, check out Herbivore Botanicals. You and your partner will be glad you did!
