This month’s Beauty Heroe’s box is SO special-I couldn’t wait to share it with you guys! Josh Rosebrook is a genius and his products speak for themselves. If you’ve been reading my blog long enough you know I’m a fan of his products. This month his Cacao Antioxidant Mask takes center stage as hero of the month! I was already a huge fan of this mask and was just so jazzed to see it in this month’s box. This mask is what started it all for Josh. After experimenting with cacao, he noticed a significant improvement in his skin. His clients noticed as well and for good reason!
I love Josh’s whole approach to skincare. It’s all about supporting the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. Giving it what it needs so that it can repair on it’s own. Not a quick fix like many would want, but a process of letting your skin regenerate as it was meant too. This happens by supporting the skin with herbs, nuts, fruit, seeds, plants, leaves, and flowers. These natural resources offer similar phytonutrients found in the body and help facilitate the skin’s ability to heal thorough cell turnover. Josh believes in a five step process: Cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate, moisturize and protect-I couldn’t agree more! You can’t have one without the other. They are all connected and help the skin to become the best version of itself. I have seen for myself the amazing transformation skin can take when nourished and given time-can you say glow?!
This month’s hero is not a new hero to me. I’ve been using Josh’s Cacao Antioxidant Mask for a while and have fallen hard for it. First, it comes in this chic glass jar. You open it and instantly get a whiff of rich cacao-just like the name suggests. I’m in love! It looks like dark rich frosting but not the kind you eat. This decadence is the kind you apply to your face. Before application I mist Josh’s Hydrating Accelerator over my face. Leaving my skin dewy and ready for masking. I just use a spoon to apply some of the mask on the back of my hand and then use my fingers to apply to my face. I’ve found the formula is too thick for a brush. Once applied, I wait 45 minutes to let the mask do it’s magic. You can do less time but I like to get the full effect. Then I just wipe off with a washcloth. After, my skin feels revived, refreshed and awake. I love applying my oils after and then waking up to skin that is seriously happy and radiant. The mask detoxifies while at the same time nourishing and giving back so many nutrients into the skin. A serious skin treat!
So what’s in this mask that makes it so magical?! The ingredients in the mask are amazing and really make this “glow” happen. Cacao is a known antioxidant that helps to slow the aging process and beef up collagen to give skin it’s health back. Plus, it helps to bring circulation to the skin, causing it to absorb nutrients better. If that wasn’t enough there are a chockfull of plant oils that help moisturize, repair and calm the skin. Best of all? This mask is perfect for any skin type! Dry, sensitive, oily-anyone can benefit-I’ve seen it for myself. I have dry skin and my sister has oily and it does wonders for us both. Oh, and did I mention the ingredients are 100% certified organic? Yeah, and Josh goes to great lengths to ensure every ingredient is in its purest form when selected. Check out his stance on ingredient integrity here. It’s really all about plant ingredients with Josh’s Products and for good reason. These plants are living and active and offer such a similar composition to our own skin. I believe it’s really how skincare is intended to be made-with the earth as it’s source.
As if the Cacao Antioxidant Mask wasn’t enough to make you swoon this month, there’s also another skin product in the box. The sidekick this month is Josh’s Hydrating Accelerator. This is another Josh product that I’m quite familiar with and love. This mist really does it all-from hydrating, toning and moisturizing. The basis of the mist is aloe vera, which helps the skin absorb nutrients more efficiently and plumps up the overall texture of the skin. Herbs also help to calm the skin and reduce redness. I love spraying this on after cleansing before serums/oils and also before and after a mask. A serious skincare must in my opinion! Plus, this little tonic smells like vanilla, can you say mmm! I’m addicted to the smell alone. I even spray this throughout the day for a quick pick me up of hydration.
