Wanting to promote healthy ingredients, environmental friendliness, and social responsibility, couple Holly McWhorter and Bjarke Ballisager created Plant Apothecary, an overall wellness brand aimed to moisturize, purify, de-stress, exfoliate any skin. Their uses aromatherapy and herbalism to create plant-based products that are vegan, cruelty-free and are made without gluten, GMO, petroleum, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, and silicones.
The Re:Fresh Organic Toning Face Mist ($12) promises to hydrate and nourish the skin using cucumber, rosewater, and aloe vera. It felt a little heavy on my face but it smells great. It always feels hydrating and nourishing to the skin. I use it in the morning as a toner before applying makeup.
Providing antioxidants while purifying the skin, the Matcha Organic Antioxidant Face Mask ($24) uses white clay, fair trade matcha tea, and chamomile flower oil. Smelling like matcha, it instantly relaxes me. It leaves the skin feeling plump and smooth without stripping and overly drying my skin.
The Be Well Body Wash ($18) contains coconut oil soap, olive oil soap, jojoba oil soap, glycerin, and guar. First off, this smells so good. The texture feels like honey slowly being poured to your skin and it leaves my body feeling cleansed and soft.
For relaxing, the Super Soak ($32) has sea salt, organic mustard, organic eucalyptus essential oil to increase circulation, help wash away painful lactic acid buildup in your muscles, and provide gentle pain relief. I enjoyed every bath with this as it helps calm and relax me. It’s good for days when you’re feeling under the weather.
I really enjoyed using Plant Apothecary products. Aside from smelling great, all their product claims are true. Also, the price is amazing, honestly.
