One of my most recent beauty buys was Herborist Discovery Kit from Sephora. I bought it three weeks ago, since I have been using it.
My skin is oily and I have some difficulties in finding nice suitable products, so while I was in Sephora I asked for some recommendation, so I got the answer that Herborist may be the perfect range for my skin. And of course I was very curious to try it.
Herborist is the only Chinese brand which you can buy in Sephora, their products are oriented around the idea of using natural ingredients and Chinese methodology.
“Herborist is the first modern skin care brand based on traditional Chinese medicine.”
First, let me say that the packaging was very nice and pretty. I like the idea of the set.
Herborist Discovery kit contains the following products:
- T’ai Chi Mask (30 g x 2)
- Revitalizing & Firming Eye Cream (5 g)
- Revitalizing & Firming Day Cream (15 g)
You can find it here: Herborist Official Site or in Sephora: Sephora Online
Tai Chi Black Mask
The black mask is Yin. Formulated with a host of active herbal ingredients such as Red Peony, Bamboo Charcoal and Ginkgo Biloba, it rids the skin of impurities—dead cells, makeup residue, excess sebum. A mask without grains, it gently purifies without irritating, leaving you with perfectly cleansed skin.*
You have to use the black mask first. It contains Red Peony, Bamboo Charcoal and Ginkgo Biloba, it is a deep cleanser and removes the impurities from inside of the pores and gently purify the skin. I can’t really say that is better than other face masks. It implies easily and the smell is good. It leaves the skin fresher. After 5-6 minutes when you wash your face, it is time to apply the second mask.
Tai Chi White Mask
The white mask is Yang. It nourishes and soothes your skin like a caress. Boasting at least ten active herbal ingredients including White Peony, it leaves your skin soft and restores its radiance.*
The white mask soothers and softens the skin, and it helps the shrinking of the pores. After applying it has to stay around 10 minutes, and be rinsed with warm water. I personally use a small towel with warm water to remove my face masks. After using both of the masks, I felt my skin softer and cleaner.
Revitalizing and Firming Day Cream
A creamy daytime moisturizer that delivers elasticity and softness to skin as it protects from the damaging effects of daily exposure to sun and pollution.Revitalizing & Firming Day Cream delivers total antiaging skin care that firms the skin and smooths the appearance of wrinkles. With a nourishing, quick-absorbing texture and a fresh scent, it boasts active, herbal ingredients for rejuvenated, radiant skin.*
The face cream, I have been using everyday and I love it. That is the part of the set I am most excited about.. It is moisturising and it absorbs very good and fast in my skin. It doesn’t leave any extra oil or shine. When I apply my make up, my face stays mat for the rest of the day, which is a miracle in my case. Usually I get shiny and oily after couple of hours, especially on my forehead and my nose, but with Herborist face cream I don’t have this kind of problems.
3-in-1 skincare that targets wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness, while being gentle on the fragile skin around the eye. Comprehensive skincare that targets the 3 main concerns of the eye area: wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. Its gentle, creamy texture boasts a potent trio of herbs that deliver anti-aging action: Rhodiola Sacra, Ganoderma Lucidum and Fragrant Solomon’s Seal. Wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed, puffiness and signs of fatigue are diminished, restoring all the vibrancy to your eyes!*
My second favourite item in this set! It is very light and it absorbs very good. I really like it, my skin feels much better and moisturised after it.
In conclusion, I really like the set. It is nice and very affordable. The quality is excellent and it definitely worth the try. I would like to buy in real size the Revitalizing and Firming Day Cream and to try some other products of Herborist.
