I got my first taste of PLANT Apothecary in my January Glowing Beet’s Box. I received their body wash in the box, and it was love at first smell! I was so excited to try out more of their products. Oh and news flash: The body wash is now in Target-hello! I just saw it there the other day, and did a happy dance. How cool to offer clean beauty to the public, and at one of the largest retailers nationwide?! So check your local Target. You can find it in the Natural Beauty Section, near other natural brands like Acure, and S.W. Basics. You can find all of PLANT’s products online at Target.com as well.
PLANT was founded by Holly McWhorter and Bjarke Ballisager, a wife and husband duo in Brooklyn, NY. They either together or independently formulate all PLANT products. They both are passionate about the environment and green beauty. One thing I love about their whole process? Their products are made with the help of individuals with physical or mental disabilities-how cool is that?! I also am taken by their sleek and simple design, and their clean ingredients.
Ok, on to the review. I sampled a handful of products and I’m happy to report they’re all winners!
I received a full size of their Wake Up body wash in Rosemary and Lemongrass, and then small samples of all their other scents. I have to say after trying them all, my favorite scent is the Wake Up and the Get Happy, which is a geranium and peppermint scent. I’m a sucker for anything mint as you guys know, and the Wake Up body wash with the Rosemary and Lemon is so refreshing. They also have three other scents, so if the above doesn’t appeal to you, you might find something else that suits your fancy. Now to the formula. It’s foams up and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and not dry at all. I’m seriously addicted guys! I love knowing that when I run out, I can just drive to my local Target and get more-so easy. If you haven’t found a body wash that you’re crazy about, look no further, this is your diamond in the ruff! $20
This stuff comes in powder form. I just received a small sample, but a little goes a long way. I put it on a zit that was starting to form-think red and raised, not pretty. I just added a touch of water, not a ton and swirled it in my hand. I then put it on the zit. It dried and then I went to bed with it on. In the morning my zit wasn’t gone, but it wasn’t big and red anymore. It definitely helped to calm it down and relieve the puffiness of it. A nice spot treatment when you’re fighting those pesky little zits! $24
I received this in a full size and I’m so happy I did! It really is such a different type of cleanser. The main ingredient is rice bran which has long been used in the Japanese culture. It has been shown in studies that it protects the skin from UV light and softens the skin. Well, I can tell you my skin definitely felt softened! It didn’t leave a dry feeling at all either. I just mixed a few drops of water in the mixture in my hand and rubbed together and applied in circular motions over my face. I rinsed off and my skin felt smooth and clean. It’s really in my opinion also a gentle exfoliant-a two in one. This would especially be good for those with sensitive skin. $24
This mask smells so good-just like a matcha latte!. I also received just a sample of this, so only was able to get a couple masks out of it. It comes in a powder form too, and you just add water to it. You only need a very small amount of water-a few drops. I mixed it in my ceramic bowl, and applied it with my facial brush. It goes on wet and then dries. I left it on until it dried and then rinsed. My skin felt refreshed and revived after using it. I just felt it brightened up my whole complexion. You all know I’m a serious mask lover, and this one did not disappoint! $24
I also sampled the body oils. My fave scent was the Wake Up-lemon rosemary. The body oil is unique compared to other body oils because the first ingredient is rice bran oil. They also add in jojoba oil, and apricot kernel oil. They all blend so nicely together. I applied it right after the shower while my skin was still damp and it melted right in. No oily residue left behind. A serious treat for your skin! $38
