The key to a sun-kissed glow? Mushroom face oil

That is Product of the Week – a weekly round-up of the Dazed Beauty team and wider community’s must-have buys.


Brand: Herbar
Product: The Face Oil
Price: 75/£65


First off, I like the packaging – it just looks so different from what’s on the market and the bottle itself is a ravishing object. I discovered the brand a couple of month ago, once I was on Instagram and it showed up on someone’s story. I remember pondering that the bottle looked super odd and was wondering what it was. Then I checked out their Instagram and it was love at first sight, I felt very drawn to their aesthetic.

I purchased a small bottle because I find it a bit pricey, but they guarantee good ingredients. This face oil is special since it’s filled with mushroom extracts which, in keeping with the brand, “work their magic to adapt to your unique imbalances to coach and strengthen skin against on a regular basis stresses.” I actually have been using it for 3 weeks now and I actually prefer it. I don’t like oils that feel super greasy on my skin but that is fast absorbing and makes my skin feel soothed and radiant.

The way in which I take advantage of the oil is, before going to bed, I mix it with some fake tanning lotion. Using it before bed allows the color to develop on the skin and I only use a tiny bit otherwise I look super orange and no person wants that (I made the error in the future)! I apply the mixture to my skin and the subsequent day I look ALIVE in a world of zombies because my complexion looks super glowy and sun-kissed.

Herbar also sells The Gua-Shroom derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s principally a gua sha that has the form of a mushroom. I don’t have it but I’d prefer to add it to my routine, it’d make it even higher!


If this product was a song it will be… “Moonlight” by Flwr Chyld. That’s what it’s giving.

If I went back in time, the historical figure I might give this product to is… I’d give it to Marie Antoinette, I heard she was using mice piss to bleach her hair. She might enjoy using shrooms for her skin, who knows.

This product’s astrological sign is… It might be an Aries since it looks offended at me.
