September Beauty Heroes Discovery- Skin Owl is in the house! As always, I’m so excited to get my Beauty Heroes Box each month. This month we had the pleasure of trying out Skin Owl’s new Beauty Drops PM Maqui Berry. We also got to sample their Beauty Whip Maqui Berry. I couldn’t wait to test out both of them! If you aren’t familiar with Beauty Heroes keep reading to find out why this beauty box takes the cake!
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. The products typically range from skincare to haircare products. However, every 3 months Beauty Heroes offers a makeup box as well that’s optional for members or non-members. 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? As a Beauty Heroes Ambassador, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a movement.
Ok, on to the review!
This month the heroic product came from Skin Owl. I was thrilled to see them in the box. Skin Owl was one of the first green beauty skincare brands that I tried. Their Geranium Oil literally saved my skin. I had the pleasure of sitting next to the founder of Skin Owl, Annie Tevlin last year at Indie Beauty Expo in L.A. and I was so taken by her kindness and smile. She truly cares for her customers and has a heart of gold. If anyone knows about troubled skin it’s Annie. She suffered from acne for years and literally tried everything. Out of her own struggles Skin Owl was birthed. Not only does she know the emotional toll acne takes on a person but also what works to get rid of it.
If you’ve been following Skin Owl you know that before Maqui Berry Beauty Drops PM, there was Mangosteen. Unfortunately, Annie had to make a hard decision when she realized the Mangosteen didn’t meet her sustainability standards. She could either continue using it or discontinue her product. So, she set out to find something to not only replace the Mangosteen berry but go above and beyond what it did. Well, I think she hit the nail on the head! The Maqui Berry is a highly potent anti-inflammatory berry that not only soothes acne, but also rosacea, and hyper-pigmentation. Now you not only get a super dose of antioxidants with the Maqui Berry, but also the same base of organic baobab, that eases redness, and smooths skin texture. This mighty fruit is sourced from Chile, where the Mapuche Indians praise it for it’s anti-inflammatory benefits.
So what was my take on the new formula of Beauty Drops PM? Well, let me first start with the smell. I LOVE the scent! It is a subtle mix of citrus and vanilla. I almost want to wear it as a perfume! It isn’t overwhelming. Mangosteen for me personally before was a little too sweet smelling. This new formula is just dreamy. It still has the same consistency as the previous oil. It feels heavier like you would expect but not greasy in any way. The oil literally sinks right into your skin. Hydrating it and leaving behind a silky smooth complexion when you touch your face. I love how it makes my skin feel. I not only wear this at night, but also in the morning before my makeup application. The formula is so good! On the bottle it says it helps improve lackluster skin- I couldn’t think of a better term than that! It really makes skin shine from within and brings it back to life.
The sidekick this month is Beauty Whip Maqui Berry. The maqui berry in the Beauty Whip is in powder form. This product can be used as a mask, primer before makeup, and a cream or lotion for dehydrated skin. Really the possibilities are endless. It feels like a rich, buttery cream. Annie, the founder of Skin Owl, recommends refrigerating it for best results. I’ve found this to be true! I also was surprised when I used it as a primer- I never would have thought of that but love it. It creates such a smooth canvas for makeup application. I’ve also worn it as a mask and left if on for 30 minutes and afterwards my skin is silky and so hydrated. You can even apply it after your Beauty Drops at night for an extra surge of hydration. Plus, I love that it comes in a glass pump bottle- so convenient for travel!
