Beauty Heroes October Discovery: LILFOX

It’s time for Beauty Heroes October Discovery: LILFOX!  I was excited when I saw the black glass bottles from LILFOX in this month’s box.  In this box we are seeing the famed Prickly Pear Illuminating Tourmaline Infused Beauty Nectar and The Kalahari Eye Serum.  These two couldn’t have come at a better time with the cooler temps from Fall!  If you haven’t heard of Beauty Heroes Subscription box- then keep reading to hear why it’s the “IT” green beauty box.

Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot.  A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie last year 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…

Beauty Heroes LILFOX Prickly Pear Serum Review

Beauty Heroes October Discovery LILFOX Prickly Pear Serum Review

Prickly Pear Illuminating Tourmaline Infused Beauty Nectar-

This oil is seriously wonderful.  If you’ve followed me long enough, you know I have a thing for prickly pear seed oil.  It’s a power house oil known for it’s anti-aging properties, hydrating benefits and brightening effects-really there’s not much it doesn’t do.  Well, this beauty nectar not only contains prickly pear but a host of other amazing oils.  I love the smell-a mix of frankincense, and bergamot is what I pick up.  I apply it after I spritz my face with a toning mist.  It melts into my skin and leaves it feeling perfectly hydrated.  The best part?  Waking up to skin that feels moisturized, even and balanced.  I love this little creation!  If you’ve been looking for a good serum/oil-this is your baby.

The Kalahari 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!

Beauty Heroes September Discovery: Josh Rosebrook

Beauty Heroes September Discovery: Josh Rosebrook

Beauty Heroes September Discovery: Josh Rosebrook is one for the books!  I mean it’s no secret I love anything Josh makes.  I loved seeing his products in this month’s box.  I’ve tried all these products previously and can say they all knock it out of the park.  I’ve met and talked with the founder many times and I have to say it’s easy to see how his products flow out of him.  He is all around magnetic and his creations are just an extension of who he is!

On to the review…

Ok, if you haven’t heard of Josh Rosebrook by now you’re really missing out…sorry but it’s just the truth!  Not only does Josh create hair products, but skincare products as well.  Some people can only master one or the other, but I’m here to say he’s successfully mastered both.  Not to mention he is a hair stylist, someone who knows hair creating hair products…hello!  I’ve tried a handful of his products, from hair to skincare, and have been left wanting more each time.  The amount of care and dedication that goes into each product Josh makes is truly a work of art.  He really takes green beauty to the next level!

Get the box here before it sells out!

The premise that the body heals itself is what Josh crafts his products from.  Whether in skincare, or hair, the body knows when to produce the correct amount of oils, when to exfoliate and when to cleanse.  Josh believes it’s our job to help the process along.  I love his whole concept and fully subscribe to it.  Another huge part of the products Josh creates is the ingredients.  There’s nothing toxic, or synthetic about them.  All ingredients from plants are 100% organic or wild harvested.  It’s very important that not only are the ingredients high quality, but that the ingredients work together to create something truly special.  Sign me up for this!

Beauty Heroes September box Josh Rosebrook Active Enzyme Exfoliator

Beauty Heroes September Discovery- Josh Rosebrook Active Enzyme Exfoliator

Heroic Product:

Active Enzyme Exfoliator-

My go too exfoliant in green beauty! This exfoliator uses a mechanical exfoliant of walnut shells, and also an enzyme exfoliant. Not only did my skin feel smooth after but it looked brighter!  It is chockfull of plant oils and active honey- a serious treat for the skin.  I’ve tried to pinpoint the smell and I’ve come to the conclusion it smells like black licorice to me-which I love or used too…haha.  So how did I use this bad boy?  I would squirt my skin first with Josh’s Hydrating Accelerator, per instructions to open up pores, then I would massage a small nickel size amount all over my face.  Then I let it set for 15 minutes, I found that was my sweet spot.  But you can do it up to an hour.  This is another must have!  If you’ve been looking for an exfoliant that leaves your skin feeling smooth but also looking bright-this is it.

Beauty Heroes plus Josh Rosebrook

Beauty Heroes September Box Sidekicks- Hydrating Accelerator + Advanced Hydration Mask

Sidekicks:

Hydrating Accelerator-

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.

Advanced Hydration Mask-

As we get older we lose a lot of hydration in our skin.  The perfect antidote is a good hydration mask.  This one by Josh Rosebrook is great at adding hydration back into the skin.  You can leave it on even overnight for intense hydration.  It goes on like almost a thick frosting and just melts into your skin. I leave it on for 15 minutes and when I take it off my skin feels so hydrated! You don’t remove it with water either but just a dry cloth-helps retain the moisture! Dare I say fine lines look a little less fine if you know what I mean! This has been especially great after flying, when my skin tends to get even drier. ⠀⠀

Clearly, I’m obsessed with anything Josh makes!  I would hop on this month’s discovery- word on the street it will go fast!  The value is $125 but you can get it for $42.95!  Get it here!

Natural Rejuvenating Treatment Cream-

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!

Get the Discovery now before it sells out! 

Body Cream-

This body cream is another skin treat from Ayuna!  It’s filled with prebiotics that help to balance your skin’s microbiota.  In my opinion this is a cutting edge product!  It contains Plasma Rich in Cell Factors from Noni and Peptides from Lactic Bacteria.  It also has a blend  of Calendula, Zea Mays.  It’s power packed and will visibly improve the skin.  It feels SO luxurious going on- a serious skin treat.  My skin throughout the day fills so hydrated.  I love how it soaks in though and doesn’t leave behind an oily residue.  It also contains their signature scent!  Trust me you will be loving this until the very last drop.

Beauty Heroes July Discovery: True Botanicals

Beauty Heroes July Discovery: True Botanicals

So excited to announce Beauty Heroes July Discovery: True Botanicals!  I was over the moon when I saw True Botanicals was in the July Beauty Heroes box.  If you’ve been following me long enough you know True Botanicals is one of my favorite green beauty brands.  Their products deliver results!  This month we are seeing their Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner as the heroic product and their Body Wash as the sidekick.  I can’t wait to share my thoughts on these amazing products!  But in case you’re not familiar with Beauty Heroes, allow me to introduce you.

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, let’s get down to the nitty gritty!

Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner-

If you’ve been following me for a hot minute you know I love this duo!  It really cleanses the hair SO well- something that can be hard to find in green beauty. This stuff is just the best!  If you’ve thought that no natural shampoo and conditioner will work for your hair, think again.  The shampoo suds up like a mainstream shampoo, but without the harsh chemicals.  The conditioner doesn’t leave that greasy oil residue…you know that feeling I’m talking about!  Need, I say more?  Not really, but I will because I just can’t help myself!  It smells insanely good, fresh like everything they make does.  They also come in recyclable metal bottle pumps, that literally look so luxe in the shower.  I promise you won’t be disappointed, this stuff is amazing and worth every penny, and that says a lot coming from a stylist.  My hair is fine and thin and I have friends with thick and curly hair and it works for both of us so well!

Nourishing Body Wash-

Guys, even body products TB nails!  The body wash lathers up perfectly.  Giving you that fresh clean feeling.  The woodsy citrus scent is perfect too, smells clean but not overwhelming.  It makes my skin feel hydrated without any added greasiness.  True Botanicals uses plant based surfactants to help clean the skin.  With ingredients like organic green tea extract, aloe leaf extract, olive fruit extract- your skin will feel silly smooth.  A great addition to the Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner.

Beauty Heroes June Discovery: Honua

Beauty Heroes June Discovery: Honua

It’s the beginning of the month, which means Beauty Heroes June Discovery: Honua is here!  Honua is no stranger to Beauty Heroes, but the products being showcased this month are.  This month we are seeing a day cream that has an spf 30 sun protection in it, plus a mask.  Did I mention Honua is based in the Hawaiian islands?  You get a little taste of the island in there products- who can’t love that?!  If you haven’t heard of Beauty Heroes, allow me to share with you this stellar green beauty box and the founder who started it.

Beauty Heroes was founded by Jeannie Jarnot.  A longtime spa director herself and healthy beauty expert.  I had the pleasure of meeting Jeannie last year 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.

On to the review…

So I haven’t tried a ton of products from Honua, so I was excited to see them in the Beauty Heroes box!  Honua skincare line is based off of the healing practices and medicinal herbs found on the Hawaiian islands.  The founder Kapua Browning, the founder is a native Hawaiian herself.  She grew up on the beautiful island of Oahu.  After growing up in the sun she started to notice skin damage in her early 20’s.  She studied aesthetics, herbalism and after years of practice created what is now Honua Skincare.

Being a native Hawaiian, her goal is to share her love of the Hawaiian culture and practice in her creations. Once you smell her skincare treats you will feel transported to the island life.  After all the skincare line is named Honua in Hawaiian, which means earth.  The founder loves to protect the land where she grew up and donates a portion of her proceeds to three organizations preserve such things as coastlines, forests, reefs and wildlife.

Malu-

This month’s heroic product is called Malu, which means shade, shelter or protection.  The name couldn’t connect more to the product!  This is exclusive to Beauty Heroes and the first time we are seeing it.  Malu is a protection day cream with spf 30.  It comes in a dark glass pump bottle- I love that you can turn the cap for when you travel.  It comes out white when you apply it to your skin but quickly fades to clear as you rub it in.  The natural sun protectant in the formula is non-nano zinc oxide.  It feels SO nice on the skin.  It hydrates but doesn’t leave behind a greasy residue.  It really feels like a nice primer too.  Really filling in lines and creating a perfect canvas for makeup application.  I also felt I had a bit of a glow using it.  I really dig it!  Some facial sunscreens can feel heavy or greasy but not Malu!   A great way to protect your skin the summer months especially but even year round.

Moana Mask-

This mask is made for days spent in the sun.  The ingredients are meant to revitalize and regenerate the cells, using ingredients from the ocean such as Hawaiian spirulina, and blue green algae.  It also contains a long time Hawaiian healing plant called Laukahi.  These ingredients help bring calm and healing to the skin.  Unlike some mask that are more pasty or thick, Moana Mask feels like a heavier cream on the skin.  I applied it after toning and left it on for 15 minutes.  My skin felt hydrated and renewed after using the mask.  The scent reminds me of the leis they give you when you get off the plane in Hawaii- a pleasant memory indeed!

We are also seeing a special sidekick in this month’s box- a glass straw!  This ultra chic glass straw is one step in helping to reduce the plastic craze that surrounds us.  Take this with you in your purse or your car and say no to plastic straws when out and about.  This small step makes a world of difference and also helps to get people thinking about one time use plastic.  

This box couldn’t have come at a better time with summer almost here!  I will be using Malu all summer to keep my skin protected without the greasy feeling. If you’ve never been a Beauty Heroes subscriber I recommend signing up!  The value this month was $90!  You can sign up here!

If you’re already a Beauty Heroes member, you know each time you shop in the Beauty Heroes store you get 15% off your purchase.  Stock up here on all your must have green beauty products!  Also, for the month of June, the love more promotion for Beauty Heroes Customers is Nectar Vital Rose Drops Face Serum from Osmia Organics, a heavenly scented serum designed for the Goddess in everyone.  Receive a deluxe travel size with any $125 purchase in the Beauty Store. This is a stellar deal!  Shop the Beauty Store here!
