Beauty Heroes celebrates 5 years and is curating the best of the best in honor of the celebration. In 5 years there have been so many products that have landed in their hands. After testing it all when it comes natural beauty, they've chosen 5 standout products. All of these products have been hero products in the past.
Here's the lineup:
- Laurel Sun Serum
- Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask
- Honua Skincare Aloha Youth Serum
- Ayuna Natural Rejuvenating Treatment Cream II
- LILFOX Kalahari Eye Serum
Talk about some serious natural beauty goodness! I've tried each of these beauties in the past and I'm here to report on their heroic status.
Laurel Sun Serum– This is a serum and oil in one that helps to repair sun damaged skin. The formula contains 27 whole organic plants! It helps to reverse the signs of aging that the sun brings. It also helps to brighten and fade age spots. The oil feels richer on the skin but it also seeps right in. When I used it I noticed a decrease in overall redness, faded sun spots and clearer skin tone. I just love how this oil feels on the skin too. Laurel really uses the power of plants to restore the skin. 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!
Josh Rosebrook Cacao Antioxidant Mask- 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.
Honua Skincare Aloha Youth Serum- This is the perfect morning serum for the skin. It instantly wakes it up. It's not necessarily hydrating on it's own. If you have dry skin you may need an additional lotion or oil on top of the serum. The serum's scent is a total floral Hawaiian scent. You're transported to the island vibe when you smell this serum. The consistency is milky, different than many serums. It has a blend of Hawaiian kava kava and kukui. It gives your skin a glow- especially great in the morning when skin needs a little pick me up.
Ayuna Natural Rejuvenating Treatment Cream II- This cream is creamy, decadent and addicting. I remember after first using it waking up and literally touching my skin and thinking- wow! My skin felt so good. Smooth and supple, completely hydrated. Now you might be wondering what’s in this luxurious cream- allow me to explain.
It has a combination of phyto-peptides, and restorative botanical factors. Not too mention it is preserved through probiotics- how cool! It is also vegan. This cream is meant to firm and restore your skin’s texture and color. I use it morning and night. It’s light enough to apply in the morning before makeup. It smells wonderful too! If you’ve smelled Ayuna’s products in the past then you know what I’m talking about- their signature scent. But if you haven’t let me give you a little preview. It has an essential oil natural fragrance of Gurjum Balsam, Holy Wood, Myrrh, Chamomile, Rosemary, Buchu. You will love the smell
LILFOX Kahlahari Eye Serum- Love that this eye serum comes in a rollerball form. Such easy application! This eye serum is a mix argan oil, prickly pear, watermelon and passion fruit. The vitamins A and K really help to brighten the eye area. Something pretty much anyone can use! I know I can as a mama of two. There is also peridot gem inside the formula which has been known to help the skin and heart take in all the plant has to offer them. I’ve been rolling this on in the morning and at night. I love how it feels cooling from the rollerball and hydrating but not greasy. It quickly soaks in!
Ok, are you drooling yet?! The natural beauty box roundup September is off to a stellar start. I mean talk about a serious organic beauty lineup! This Beauty Heroes box is just plain off the hook. This whole lineup is valued at $256!!! Should I say that again? I know crazy. But you can get it for $58.95! I wouldn't delay- clearly this box will sell out!
The Detox Box is back this month featuring Naturopathica. This line is made in East Hampton, New York. Created by an herbalist, esthetician, and aromatherapist. Barbara Close is on a mission to educate people on natural beauty. Naturopathica has been going strong for over 20 years. Excited to share this box as part of the natural beauty box roundup September.
Carrot Seed Soothing Facial Oil- This is the perfect oil for skin that needs a little love. Maybe it's been overworked or stressed from environmental factors, either way this oil will sooth the skin. Rich in carrot seed, evening primrose and lavender oils. It feels rich on the skin and weighty but absorbs nicely. My skin felt so hydrated even the next day!
Oat Cleansing Facial Polish- This is such a great mild exfoliant. Using the power of jojoba beads and oats to gently remove dead skin cells. It leaves skin feeling smooth and vibrant. It's really a 3-in-1 product. Not only is it an exfoliant but also a cleanser and mask too. A triple threat for your skincare routine! I love how it wasn't harsh for an exfoliant.
Calendula Essential Hydrating Cream- Where's my dry and sensitive skin gals at? This is for you! Not only does it have soothing calendula in it but also borage, trehalose, and saccharide. A winning combination of comforting, hydrating and protection from environmental factors. It literally feels like butter on the skin. Perfect as the weather transitions to cooler temps.
Easy to see how this box made it into the natural beauty box roundup September lineup! This whole box is valued at $145, but you can get it for $55! Another jam packed box from The Detox Market. Snag this month's Detox Box here!
I'm always so excited to see what's in the box for Boxwalla. It's usually filled with a new unique product I haven't tried- which is kind of amazing considering I've tried a lot of product as a natural beauty blogger! I'm no stranger to the brand this month, but I am to the actual product. This month we are seeing Le Masque Hydralift Intense from African Botanics. African Botanics has been in Boxwalla Boxes before and it is always a home run.
This month is no different. I love the theme of this month's box- Dream A Little Dream Of Me. This mask will make you dream of the best skin because that's what your skin will feel like after using it! Combining micro and mini Hyaluronic Acids, South African Aloe Ferox, fermented Yeast, along with Saccharides, Resurrection Plant and Mallow this is a one, two punch for increasing your skin's overall hydration. Not only does it add moisture but also helps to lift, firm and smooth the skin.
I like to think of the mask like this: Not only is it feeding and nourishing my skin but it protects it from environmental factors and normal pollutants. It really goes much deeper than any mask I've used. Really getting to the cellular level to deliver deep nutrients. I also loved how soothing it was on my skin. With ingredients like Niacinamide that help to brighten and calm redness.
I would apply to slightly damp skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. You can also leave on overnight! I noticed an increase in overall brightness, hydration and suppleness. The mask is made for dry, thirsty, stressed skin.
I can't recommend Boxwalla's September box enough! It really is such a unique product and for a stellar deal. The box is valued at $180 but you can get the box for $49.95 through Boxwalla- crazy amazing! Get the box here!
