Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

HERB + FLORA is an environmentally conscious clean beauty brand that is cruelty-free and invested in the use of top quality ingredients coupled with scientific innovation. 


HERB + FLORA is an ode to life, to beauty, to achievement. An invitation to push your own limits, to explore what is possible for all Athletes of Life. We leverage the advanced science of energy and performance, combined with the power of botanicals, to create holistic clean beauty products that mimic the effects of exercise on skin, hair and nails and help people get to their own finish line every single day, feeling beautiful, healthy, balanced.

According to HERB + FLORA,

We believe in embracing life to the fullest, pushing our own limits and INSPIRING others to do the same. We believe in using the latest science to empower Athletes of Life to achieve their dreams. We believe in the power of together, in empowering people to help people, in a community of shared beliefs. We believe beauty is not only skin deep but surrounds us in nature and we have the responsibility to protect it.

HERB + FLORA The Potion Youth Recovery Serum is a very lightweight serum that immediately melts into the skin without leaving behind any sort of residue. Described as a "facial in a bottle"– this serum deeply and effectively hydrates the skin, and the Hyaluronic Acid plumps fine lines and attracts and retains moisture. The antioxidant-rich formula offers the skin protection by scavenging free-radicals, and its nourishing ingredients leave the skin refreshed, soft, smooth, supple and luminous. While it lists fragrance as its last ingredient, I only detect the most faint herbal aroma.
According to HERB + FLORA,

No magic. Just science. The energy recovery and rejuvenating “facial in a bottle” serum to help erase yesterday’s fatigue signs fast with no irritation while helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.

Formulated with the highest concentration of our own Exercise Mimic Youth™ Complex combined with a gentle level of smoothing AHA and PHA and skin replenishing mineral electrolytes, The Potion Serum helps accelerate skin’s daily recovery and reveal a smooth, renewed complexion without irritation. As a result, skin looks healthier, gently rested and younger-looking as if after a professional facial.

Directions: Apply on clean skin morning and evening. Dispense a pea size on your fingertips then massage lightly over face and neck, starting at the center moving outward.

  1. Hi, Lola - Wow! This sounds like a power-packed product. And I love that it is nature based. What an amazing idea: to infuse skin with elements normally brought on by exercise! It's such a revolutionary idea that I hope I'm understanding it correctly. It's blowing my mind. Sounds like something I want in my arsenal! Thanks - Angie,

    1. Hi Angie, It is a very nice serum, and I love that it is nature-based as well. The whole idea that it is based on ideas advanced from exercise science is fascinating, but I am not certain how that actually works, and I want to understand it in greater detail. They are definitely onto something because this serum really does work quite well!

  2. This sounds like a wonderful product. I will keep it in mind when I'm out of my current serums. Thanks for all the information.

    1. Hi Marsha, Thank you for stopping by! This is definitely a wonderful serum, and a brand worthy of your consideration! Warmly, Lola
