My skin has never been this happy! Inflammation gone, acne gone, uneven skin tone gone and dry patches gone. Serious miracle worker.
Anna C. New York
Bought it back in October and already went through one bottle. Ordering two more cause my skin loves this fungi Face Oil. Glowing from miles away.
Artur B. Milan
Bought it for my wife as a gift and she got me hooked. Never been one to use skincare but this product makes it easy and minimal. Also helps that the bottle looks great.
Rita B. Lisbon
Love how it absorbs so fast and instantly feeds my thirsty but very oily skin. It decreased my oil and it hydrated my rough patches.
Mila M. Wisconsin
This oil is a life saver. Winters in Wisconsin leave my skin feeling dry and rough. Wishing for a refill option.
Rose D. Sheffield
It does, hydrate and brighten the skin but can we talk about the fact it completely erased my stubborn pimples, decreased all the redness and blemishes?!
Liam N. Berlin
I have been getting compliments on my skin. Like this a lot, easy to use and efficient.
Helen L. New Orleans
Glowy, dewy, even skin. My acne has subsided and my pores are smaller.
Lea S. Munich
This product single handily gave me the most gorgeous complexion.
Tania B. Budapeste
I apply over 6 drops every night and always wake up to a calm, even and glowy skin. My nighttime non-negotiable.
Thirtha M. London
I'm now on my third bottle and my skin is just completely hooked. My only issue is that the bottle is too pretty to bin and I really need you guys to launch refills asap.
Mathilde G. Cannes
I can’t make this up but this's an awesome product that helped my psoriasis issue that I’ve been dealing with for 10 years. I’m still on my first bottle, and I can say it’s not a miracle oil that will just make your skin perfect overnight, but there is significant improvement to my skin and I only have to use prescription cream once a day (after showering) instead of multiple times throughout the day.
Emily V. Janesville
I really love the face oil and Gau-Shrooms! It took about a month to see some results, but wrinkles around my eyes have drastically improved, acne has cleared, and the best part is all the fluid in my neck around my swollen lymph nodes and scar tissue from previous acne and trauma has almost vanished! The oil is really a miracle! I have tried a lot of oils lol, and this one is by far superior to the others! I will be replacing it when it is gone.
Ana B. Ohio
I've told everyone I know about this Face OIl. First because I love everything about it and second because people keep asking me how and why my skin is looking so fabulous!
Paulina V. Brussels
I have very stubborn pimples around my mouth and lots of dark scars from being a chronic pimple popper. This Face Oil and the Skin Pearls together are my dream combo. Pimples drastically reduced and scars are fading! Will share a before and after soon.
Karim T. Malmö
My teenage daughter has now stolen this from me, that's how good it is. I think the bottle made her curious. I've tried many oils before but never one like this, must be all the funghi extracts. My skin is glowy, smooth and even, already on my second bottle.
Varum S. Goa
Love this so much that I now put it on my body too. Any plans to launch a jumbo size? I need it urgently cause otherwise it gets very expensive.

I also take all kinds of multi vitamins and supplements & I exercise daily.

The glow playlist
A playlist curated by Herbar founders' Acupuncturist to get you in the mood to glow.

In Chinese Medicine (CM), the five music scales are used to connect the human body and the universe, interpret personalities and constitution and analyse the influences of climatic changes on health.

"When I was a child my favorite game in the car was to imagine how I could make the landscape that just passed before my eyes more beautiful. I wanted to somehow create a harmonious world, pleasant to contemplate anywhere you are. I also have always been intrigued by Roger Dean’s artworks that he designed for Yes covers, I wanted to live in this organic world. My father used to use his work as our computer wallpaper and I would find it fascinating. In the last few years I discovered I could design anything I pictured with very few limits. I finally have the opportunity to create landscapes and scenes that gives me the feeling of stillness. For me, it's a kind of aesthetic release that is very satisfying."
Gua sha tutorial with Catarina & Rui
A guide curated by Herbar founders to get you in the mood to glow. Catarina and Rui take you through the ancient practice of the Gua-Sha with our carefully designed Gua-Shroom. Illustration by Luisa Shala @theinfinityofspace
It's best to use our Gua-Shroom on cleansed skin with a few drops of The Face Oil.
Jawline and Chin: Glide your tool upwards from the center of the chin out to the earlobe to contour the jaw.
Forehead: Start at the center of the forehead and divide your forehead into three sections and glide your tool outwards. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again.
Cheek: Start at the nose and work upwards in a sweeping motion along the cheeks and cheekbones, moving outwards toward your ears. Scrape once, then move down a bit and scrape again, move down a bit more to the center of the chin and scrape again.
Under-Eye: Start in the inner corner of the eye and glide outwards to the temple.
Catarina & Rui
It all started back in 2017 in Berlin when Rui overheard Catarina talking to someone about adaptogenic coffee and Tim Ferriss. Safe to say, not many people were into these shroomie concoctions back then. They instantly bonded over their deep love and appreciation of adaptogenics.
Catarina is a former athlete and Wellness Consultant for brands such as Adidas and Lululemon. Rui is currently finishing her PhD on Plant Nutrition after completing a degree in organic agriculture, food system master and nutrition bachelor with an oncology focus.
They started Herbar with the aim of showing that health and beauty are not mutually exclusive and to bring ancient healing to modern self-care.
