Beauty Heroes: Mr. Fox

Beauty Heroes: Mr. Fox

A special box from Beauty Heroes: Mr. Fox!  This box is actually for the men in your life!  Usually it’s all about the ladies but not this time around.  This special box was created with all the men in mind.  LIL FOX products aren’t new to Beauty Heroes but their men’s products are.  If you aren’t sure what Beauty Heroes is, keep reading to see why I love this stellar 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…

So obviously I had a little help with this box!  My hubs tried all the products to test them out and give his opinion, since they were created for all the men out there.  However, I have to admit the scents and textures of the products still had me swooning- I mean ladies your guy is going to smell amazing!

CUPU-COOL Rainforest Jelly Balm-

This balm is a 3 in 1- yeah you heard me it does 3 things!  The perfect product for most guys.  Need to cleanse your face, this is your product, need to hydrate, this is it as well.  Oh and have a guy who loves to mask- then this is your product too!  Talk about an all star travel product.  It does it all and then some.  As a cleanser apply to wet or dry skin.  Then rinse off with water.  If you need a little extra hydration put a pea size amount on hands and rub into face.  As a mask leave on for 10 minutes for extra moisture.  I love the luxe dark glass jar it comes in too!  It feels so refreshing on the skin- my hubs and I both love that feeling.  It smells SO good!  You all know I love anything peppermint.  This little jar has it all from peppermint to lemon and basil!  The combo sultry, yet fresh.

SANDALWOOD Toning Mist-

This toning mist will have you at first spray!  The smell is divine.  Sandalwood is the ultimate sensual scent in my opinion.  I told my husband he can gladly wear this as a cologne anytime. 🙂  Not only does this smell divine but also helps to keep post shave bumps at bay.  Nourishing and refreshing, great for a little extra hydration throughout the day too.  You can’t go wrong with this mist- from the smell to the soothing properties.  Your hubs will love the way the it feels and smells!

MAN ABOUT MOJAVE Desert Succulent Face + Beard Oil-

Maybe your guy in your life needs a little extra tlc when it comes to their skincare regimen.  Well, this face and beard oil is where it’s at!  It has the perfect blend of soothing and clarifying oils.  Post shave the soothing oils will calm the skin, while the clarifying oils will help prevent breakouts and bumps.  The ultimate skin treat for any guy!  The scent is a mixture of patchouli, mandarin, and rosemary.

The combination of these three products is any dream skincare regimen for the man in your life!  They are literally getting all that they need in three products, and for a stellar deal!  Right now you can snag this box from Beauty Heroes for $65!  Did someone say Father’s Day gift done?!  Or even just because- sometimes the guy’s need to get in on all the product action as well.  I would hurry though, this is a limited edition box!  You can snag the LIL FOX Men’s Discovery Box here!

Have you used any other LIL FOX products?  What are your faves?

September Beauty Heroes Discovery: Skin Owl

September Beauty Heroes Discovery: Skin Owl

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.

Skin Owl's Beauty Drops Maqui Berry is great for lackluster skin, acne and perfect for hydrating skin.

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.

Skin Owl's Beauty Whip is not only a skin hydrator but also primer!

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!

This month was another winner from Beauty Heroes!

I would hop on this month’s Beauty Heroes Box if you haven’t signed up- it’s a good one and it’s going to go fast!  I say it each time, but the value of Beauty Heroes is crazy good!  This month alone the value is $113!!  When you sign up for Beauty Heroes you’re getting it for about $38.33 a month!  I mean what are you waiting for?!  Sign up here!

August Beauty Heroes Discovery: Mahalo Skincare

August Beauty Heroes Discovery: Mahalo Skincare

Another month, brings a new Beauty Heroes Discovery!  Love this time of the month.  I get giddy to see what’s in my Beauty Hero Box.  It never gets old.  This month it’s all about Mahalo Skincare’s newest addition- The Bean Antioxidant Mask.  Mahalo is a luxurious line all on it’s own and I was excited to sample such a special creation!  If you are new to Beauty Heroes allow me to introduce you to my favorite 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 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.

Before I spill the details on this month’s heroic product, I have to fill you in on Mahalo Skincare itself.  Mahalo was founded by Maryna, after years of living a holistic lifestyle, she realized the connection between mindfulness and thankfulness.  She became aware of the connection they have to balance, which can be manifested within rituals of self care.  This brought her to the art of skincare and how taking time for oneself with luxurious skin treats is about as self giving as one can get.  She then formulated and created Mahalo Skincare- a line that is free from toxic chemicals and instead filled with clean, active ingredients that are found in the earth.

The line is oozing with luxury, from the bamboo wood container that houses the signature products, to the scents and performance.  I’ve sampled several of Mahalo’s products in the past and one that stands out in particular as a fave is the Unveil Cleanser.  I remember gushing over it because it was and still is one of my favorite cleansers.

The Bean Antioxidant Mask did not disappoint.  It’s filled with pure ingredients that literally are nourishing the skin as it sits on top of your face.  It like a thick mud but not drying like you might assume.  It goes on easy and then dries.  However, my skin doesn’t feel dry after using it.  Instead, it feels like it just received a surge of adrenaline to the skin- in the best possible way!  I know, weird way to describe it but my skin was more awake and the blood flow to the skin was so apparent.  It was as if my skin had a good workout and was shining from the inside out.  It smells divine.  A sweet smell with notes of cacao and vanilla, ylang ylang and sandalwood.  My skin also feels much smoother, and clear.  It’s evident the mask actually gets in and detoxifies the skin.

The ingredients in the mask are superb.  With antioxidants ingredients like cacao, asaxanthin, edelweiss, tomato lycopene, carrot, sandalwood, sea buckthorn and so many more!  The sidekick this month is the perfect companion to the mask, the Bamboo Treatment Brush.  This brush is made from synthetic fibers, and is great for applying masks in general.  The Bean Mask especially!

I would hop on this month’s Beauty Hero Box if you haven’t signed up- it’s a good one and it’s going to go fast!  I say it each time, but the value of Beauty Heroes is crazy good!  This month alone the value is $100!!  When you sign up for Beauty Heroes you’re getting it for about $38.33!  I mean what are you waiting for?!  Sign up here!
