PurErb Skincare

When your first glimpse of a website looks like this, you know you are in for a unique experience. PurErb Skincare is a brand based on herbology-based care and aromatherapy. They embrace the power of nature with something called NLE (natural liposome encapsulation) that intensifies the ingredients.

Pur Erb Serenity Calming Facial Oil and Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil

We were sent two products to learn about this newer line that are perfect examples of what PurErb™ is all about.


The Vitality Deep Cleansing Oil is a clear rinse off cleanser that uses 15 exotic botanical ingredients in its formula. This cleanser absorbs into your skin quickly which helps moisturize and soften it. Start with a dry face, then put a drop onto your fingertips and rub them together. Massage this onto your your dampened face and neck to activate the oil. When you are done just pat it dry to leave your skin radiant, smooth and beautifully refreshed.

It contains ingredients like Abyssinian, Moringa, Geranium, Kukui, Frankincense, and Sacha Inchi oils to provide Mother Nature’s answer to calming your skin.

  • Dissolves and washes away surface impurities
  • Helps prevent dehydration and excess sebum
  • Leaves skin refreshed, smooth, and radiant

I love the smell of this and I’m normally extremely sensitive to any fragrance, I mostly smell citrus. It’s not too sweet or too tart, it’s in between and I love it. What is terrific about this is that they sell a 1 oz size (the one I have) for only $9 so you can try out a nice size bottle before investing in the 6 oz. $32 size.


Serenity Calming Facial Oil isn’t a cleansing oil so it’s used differently and has a much stronger aromatherapy fragrance to it. This is considered to be a Meridian Oil which are used often in spa treatments. According to PurErb these oils resonate more deeply than individual essential oils and are better for transporting your senses and enhancing well being.

This too has oils that are multi-layered and include Baobab, Marula, Bulgarian Rose, Helichrysum, Sandalwood, and Lavender.

With Serenity you first do a precleanse and tone your skin. Dispense a small amount onto your fingertips and rub them together. Then massage this onto your face and neck. You won’t be washing this off. This is the oil you’d use either alone or under a moisturizer. Here are the benefits:

  • Absorbs quickly to moisturize and soften
  • Nourishes and calms stressed skin
  • Ethereal floral notes promote relaxation
  • Helps soothe mental and emotional distress

A full size 1 oz bottle (the size of mine) is 1 oz and sells for $75 while a .3 oz is $28. These contain more expensive ingredients thus the price difference. While both of these oils come in darkened glass bottles to keep the ingredients away from light, Serenity’s bottle is also frosted protecting it even more.

Information about some of the essential oils in PurErb Skincare

KUKUI: The Kukui tree was originally valued for its oil used in torches and lamps, from which its alternate name “Candlenut Tree” was derived. The dark nuts, white flowers, and downy leaves of the tree adorn traditional Hawaiian leis and symbolize enlightenment peace, and protection. The rich, silky oil contains essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins that soothe dry, stressed skin, deeply moisturize, relieve skin irritation, and promote healing.

SANDALWOOD: Prized across the globe for thousands of years, the Queen of Sheba offered sandalwood as a gift to honor King Solomon. Inhaling this scent helped Buddhists maintain alertness during meditation, and prompted Australian Aborigines to focus before the walkabout rite of passage. The slow-growing wood provides a luxurious oil that fades scars, tones, and rejuvenates the skin, while the elegant fragrance creates a sense of clarity, composure, and tranquility.

BAOBOB:  Known as the “upside down tree” of legend, the baobab overflowed with energy and walked across the African plains. Mother Earth decided to plant the baobab upside down to make sure it stayed in one place, and ever since, its root-like branches reach up to the sky. Baobab oil provides a superior source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants, promoting softer, smoother, and more toned skin. Vitamins A, D, and E deeply moisturize and nourish dull, dry, and aging skin while encouraging the regeneration of skin cells.

FRANKINSCENCE:  This fragrant resin has been revered by royalty for thousands of years, valued even more than gold. Unguent vases discovered in King Tutankhamun’s tomb contained frankincense, as further testimony of the ancient Egyptian obsession with eternal youth. Known for its healing powers, this anti-aging secret conditions, tones, and rejuvenates irritated, environmentally-damaged skin. The aroma is reminiscent of pine, honey, and lemon, and provides a sense of calm and serenity.

MORINGA:  Ancient Egyptian tombs often contained vessels filled with Moringa oil for use during the afterlife. Today, this deeply penetrating aromatic oil is still valued for its superior antioxidant and moisturizing powers for ageless-looking skin. With a superior oleic acid content of 72%, Moringa oil is deeply absorbed, delivering vital nutrients and restoring moisture to the skin.

The Expedition Essentials Set is my first exposure to PurErb™, an herbology-based skin care line. This gorgeous hand treatment set includes Neroli Baobab Hand Balm and Hand Butter, both great for extremely dry or chapped hands. They come in a sweet gift box and I can’t rave enough about the fragrance. It’s sweet and floral but not overwhelming…to me it smells like lilacs and jasmine, two of my most favorite scents of all time. My dry, itchy hands love a layer of the balm followed by a layer of the butter, and my nose is in total heaven thanks to the incredibly delightful aroma. It seriously lifts my spirits and makes me so happy every time I use it!

Ingredients include exotic oils and butters including Baobab, Abyssinian, Murumuru, Moringa, and Macadamia.

Another great option is the purse-friendly Farmhouse Fresh Plum Chiffon All Purpose Balm ($12.50). This all-purpose balm works on every part of the body from hair to toes, and is slim enough to travel along with you on all your journeys.

I love this for smoothing dry winter hair flyaways, for conditioning rough cuticles, for soothing my chapped lips, and for elimating scaly patches on my hands. Ingredients include pure shea, cocoa, and mango butters. Oh, and the Plum Chiffon scent is amazing! Sugared plum roses….truly delightful.

Don’t fall into that candy and flowers Valentine’s Day trap…use this day of love to pamper your skin and your nose with these sweet-smelling, skin softening treats.  – Lisa
