The lap of luxury

Acne prone? This is your oil (yes, you can still use a facial oil!). Named after Lapis Lazuli, an ancient Egyptian stone known for its deep blue color, it gets its gorgeous aquamarine hue from blue tansy oil—no artificial colors in sight. Along with being the most beautiful product on your vanity, it also works to balance sebum, calm inflammation, and negate redness caused by blemishes.

After cleansing and toning, apply three to four drops to skin morning and night. Massage in and allow to absorb for one to three minutes before applying makeup.


This oil isn’t just for use once acne pops up—use it as part of your daily routine to keep skin clear and breakouts at bay.

Customer Reviews

  • Not for my skin type

    Jill B. August 26, 2020

    I wouldn’t reccomend this product for people with generally dry somtimes oily skin, semi-acne prone. I thought it would work but it caused milia to appear on my skin. After not using it for 2 days, the milia went away.

  • Perfect Addition to Routine

    Kate S. April 21, 2020

    I have very oily skin and am very acne prone. I love this serum at night, since it is heavier. The smell is a little strong but it does smell like tea which is nice. I haven’t broken out since using it which is a plus for my sensitive skin!

  • Great scent, not too heavy, great for evening routine.

    Sarah D. July 12, 2019

    I struggle with adult hormonal acne flareups and I think this has made a difference for me. It really has a nice feel to it. Like the other reviews mention, a little goes a long way. Also- the scent! It is tea like- but also a bit fruity. I really enjoy having this in my evening routine.

  • True acne help

    Emma O. July 08, 2019

    Truly calms my breakouts! I can wake up with much less redness and swelling. I’ve had fewer and shorter breakouts since using this product! Would definitely recommend it.

  • Great product

    Megan K. June 29, 2019

    When I serendipitously walked into the shop in NYC, I truly didn’t even know what kind I’d shop I was walking into. It was pouring and the window display of flowers was inviting. So glad I stumbled in! I smelled and touched products I found interesting and only one other (cherry enzyme peel) smelt so amazing I had to purchase on the spot. I’m really not one for any type of daily routine, but these two products have changed me forever. I look forward to using this oil everyday! It smells like heaven and has transformed my skin. My monthly breakout has disappeared. Highly recommend.

  • Amazing!!!

    Katie F. May 28, 2019

    This is the first face oil I’ve tried and there’s no need for me to look elsewhere! I’ve just started using this product two weeks ago and I already notice a difference. My skin feels super healthy and hydrated. Love this item it is worth the price point.

  • Love

    At April 14, 2019

    Smells like tea to me which I love, light weight and feels so nourishing. Highly recommend.

  • Just what my routine was missing!

    Jennifer B. February 23, 2019

    This facial oil is as effective as it is beautiful. It smells lovely and absorbs perfectly into my skin to keep it hydrated and balanced throughout the day. Great value for money. I will keep using this for a long, long time!

  • No Blues Here!

    Megan R. February 06, 2019

    While this product is colored blue it has only brought me joy. I started using oils to moisturize my face a few months ago and when I ran out of what I had I tried this one in the travel size. It is amazing! I love that I only need a tiny bit to cover my whole face and neck and that it is dry within a minute. It feels super light and refreshing on my skin and I haven’t had any issues of it clogging my pores or irritating my skin. I already went back and bought it in the larger size.

  • So glad I found this product!

    Heidi G. January 25, 2019

    I was dealing with super dry, winter skin as well as hormonal breakouts along my chin line. A Follain employee recommend I try the Herbivore Lapis oil and I am so glad that I did. It has definitely evened out my skin, made it softer and reduced breakouts significantly. Highly recommend!

  • Perfect balance

    Emme January 24, 2019

    I have relatively normal skin with larger pores in the T-zone, I tend to get breakouts caused by hormones, digesting dairy, and not keeping up with my daily skincare routine —which now requires using this product everyday. I’ve been using it since October (it is now January) and I award this product for keeping my skin balanced and feeling hydrated in a New England winter. It’s light-weight and fast absorbing (although, I like to let oils soak in my skin for up to 15 minutes before applying a moisturizer or sunscreen layer over it). I use this once a day, sometimes twice if I’m feeling super dry or if I know I’m about to step into below freezing conditions. Would recommend this for acne-suffering customers along with the Indie Lee blemish potion (the pink zinc stuff) — both work wonderfully together!

  • Amazing

    Tori January 15, 2019

    This oils has made my skin so much less red an irritated!! Everyone can already tell a difference after a week or two and my breakouts have calmed down dramatically

  • Bad!

    Shannon S. January 03, 2019

    Broke out horribly after putting this product on twice. Too bad as it smells amazing!


    Alexandra November 09, 2018

    This is my all time favorite facial oil I’ve tried. The scent is amazing and so soothing. Great for acne prone skin. I haven’t had one breakout since using it.


    Caroline W. October 24, 2018

    I’ll follow up once this is an “empty,” but in less than one week of using Lapis, I can tell a visible difference in my skin! It is so much less angry (red), less dry, and I feel like my breakouts are way more tame. I bought the travel size because I wanted to make sure it really worked for me before committing, but if I’m as happy when it’s empty as I am now, I will definitely be investing in the full size! So far this tiny bottle packs some punch! xx

  • Blue my mind.

    Shelby S. September 12, 2018

    I incorrectly assumed this was an average oil dressed up with a bit of blue tansy, but boy was I WRONG! It’s full of great ingredients—squalane is a super hydrator, particularly great for oily skin—and that blue tansy scent can’t be beat. It absorbs well, so you won’t be left looking like a greasy Smurf. You’ll just be left with balanced, calm, healthy-looking skin!
