August Beauty Hero: Laurel Whole Plant Organics

Oh guys I was busting at the seems to share August Beauty Hero with you!  It’s that good.  Laurel Whole Plant Organics is in a league all by itself.  This is the second time this year Laurel has been featured in Beauty Heroes-coincedence?  I think not.  The whole line is that good!  This skincare line is based on flowers and herbs.  The line is 100% organic, raw and unrefined, and sources from bio-dynamic farms- I mean hello does it get any better?!  No fillers in this line, all formulas are water and alcohol free.  I love that the Laurel line is not only pure to the core, but also deeply rooted in creating a spa like ritual for yourself in the process.  Taking time to savor the experience not only for your skin but for your mind.

I had to share this quote on Laurel’s website:

“As we are awakening and learning where our food comes from, this is also a time to be aware of where our skin care comes from, how it’s made, and what is in it. The most effective skin care is raw, organic, farm sourced, handcrafted and made with love. It’s time to raise the bar for skin care ingredients.”

– Laurel

Laurel sets the bar high and does not disappoint.  This month it’s all about pure wholesome ingredients, and taking to time for yourself to savor them.  If you aren’t familiar with Beauty Heroes, then read on to learn more about this luxe monthly beauty service.

Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot.  A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie at IBE, and she is truly one of the sweetest people.  Beauty Heroes is a monthly beauty service that selects only the best clean beauty brands.  Each month you can find one to two full size truly heroic products in each box.  I absolutely love their “Use Less, Love More” philosophy.  By only getting one or two products, you allow yourself to truly experience them.  Of course you can trust their picks, as they are strict on their integrity standards.  What’s not to love about this whole concept?  I recently joined Beauty Heroes as an Ambassador, and couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement.

So what Laurel products did I have the pleasure of trying out this month?  Sun Damage Repair Serum, Honey Berry Enzyme Mask, and Before and After Sun Body Oil.

Sun Damage Repair Serum-

 This serum is a one of a kind product.  Who doesn’t have sun damage?  I’m raising both hands.  This little serum packs a serious punch towards fading hyper-pigmentation and freckles.  It has 27 active ingredients, helping to promote skin rejuvenation and give you that glow we all crave.  The scarlet pimpernel flower does wonders to help reverse the signs of aging.  Not to mention, organic licorice and carrot seed oil(packed with vitamin A).  It doesn’t stop there.  Not only does this serum help with current sun damage, but it also has red raspberry seed oil, jojoba and cranberry seed oil that protect for future sun damage.  The whole serum is off the charts.  It melts into your skin and leaves behind the scent of rosehip and sandalwood.  This is a must have item for anyone looking to transform their skin!  $72

Honey Berry Enzyme Mask-

I’ve had the pleasure of sampling this mask in the past and it was gone too quick!  It smells amazing, like your favorite berry jam.  It does wonders to awaken the skin and gently exfoliate.  Say goodbye to dull looking skin with this baby.  The ingredients again are so good.  Raw honey, and raw royal jelly, are just a few that make this mask truly decadent.  Not only does my skin look brighter, and more even after using, but I love knowing that it’s fighting signs of anti-aging with it’s super antioxidant vitamin b found in royal jelly.  This is a cult favorite from Laurel’s line and for good reason!  $44

Before and After Sun Body Oil-

This body oil not only helps protect skin naturally from the sun’s harmful rays, but it also helps to soothe and bring healing after being exposed to the sun.  It’s not a complete sun protectant but it does have avocado oil, red raspberry seed and coconut oil, all ingredients that have been proven to help prevent sun damage.  I really love applying the oil after sun exposure.  I felt it helped to heal my skin and bring relief to my sun worn shoulders.  Plus, it minimized peeling action.  This is a luxe body oil all around.  The perfect oil in your beach bag for pre and post sun exposure.  $80

    How are you using the Laurel sun repair serum? On its own or as a true serum under another oil or moisturizer?

      Hi Meg! Great Question. I’m using it as my nightly and morning serum with no other oil or moisturizer. My skin tends to be less dry during summer months and this is all my skin needs. I can’t say enough about it-it doesn’t feel greasy or oily and my skin glows!
