Beauty Heroes May Discovery: OSEA

Beauty Heroes May Discovery: OSEA

It’s another month and with it brings Beauty Heroes May Discovery: OSEA!  This month is a fun one. We are seeing a cleanser and a body polish in the box.  I haven’t sampled much from OSEA so it was nice to get to try their products.  As always if you haven’t heard of Beauty Heroes or you’re not sure what it’s all about, then keep reading below.  If you have, just skip ahead to the juicy review!

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.

On to the review…

So this month we had the privilege of seeing OSEA in the box.  This brand is truly unique.  I was so intrigued by the founder Jenefer’s story of how she started it.  She was inspired by her grandmother who credits the ocean to healing her.  She had been on bedrest after a severe leg injury.  Her grandmother recalls having a dream about the sea and the next day went for a swim.  A few weeks later her grandmother was healed!  Jenefer went to her roots when creating OSEA.  From what she learned from her grandmother of the healing properties of the ocean and her knowledge, she chose seaweed as the base of her skincare line.  Seaweed contains powerful minerals and ingredients to help restore and nourish the skin.

Undaria Body Polish-

This body polish is unlike any I’ve used.  It is creamy in consistency but yet strong enough to remove and exfoliate unwanted dry skin.  After using it my skin looks slightly pink and plump.  It takes dull skin and gives it a good polish, revealing the brightest and prettiest skin.  Upon opening it, you’re greeted with scents of lavender and Sweet Melissa.  It awakens your senses and revitalizes your whole body.  It exfoliates the skin with powdery grains of pumice, acai, and guarana.  I get my body wet first, and then apply the body polish and use circular motions to rub it in.  A serious skin treat!

Ocean Cleanser-

This cleanser is a definite fave!  I love that it comes in a frosted glass bottle- so chic.  It’s such an overall soothing cleanser, yet highly effective. It removes all my my makeup and grime from the day- yes even my stubborn eye makeup.  I get my skin damp first and then apply several pumps to my hands.  Then I rub in circular motions all over my face.  After rinsing with water my skin feels so hydrated, and clean.  Not stripped or dry.  It does such a great job of imparting hydration to the skin, and nourishing it with vitamins and minerals.  Did I mention it smells like candy?!  The lime really stands out to me.  There also are notes of juniper, and cypress.  A great all around cleanser- can’t get enough!

This month’s Beauty Heroes is definitely a special skin treat.  I truly have loved getting to know the brand OSEA and experiencing their luxe creations.  I really feel each product is thoughtfully and carefully made.  If you’ve never been a Beauty Heroes subscriber I recommend signing up! This month is too good to pass up and word on the street is it will go fast.  The value this month was $92!  You can sign up here!

May Beauty Heroes: Max and Me

May Beauty Heroes: Max and Me

It’s the start of a new month and with it brings another Beauty Heroes Discovery!  This month it’s all about the luxurious Austrian skincare line Max and Me.  I had never tried Max and Me until my Beauty Heroes box this month.  I was so elated to see the brand in the box and learn all about what makes them so special.  It truly is a unique brand, from their name, to the actual product.  Before I dive into this month’s Beauty Hero, if you’re not familiar with Beauty Heroes keep reading below for all the details and why this beauty box delivers month after month.

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, now I can gush about this month’s Beauty Hero product!

First, I must explain a little more about Max and Me.  Max and Me is a husband and wife team, Max and Tanja Gruber.  The name, Max and Me, really is a representation of their love for each other.  Their hope is that you feel the product in your whole being and feel the vibrations of it as you use it.  It truly is an experience!  You feel their sweet and tender love story coming through the product, and you can’t help but be grateful for your own loves that surround you.

Their passion is so evident in their products and ingredients as well.  With organic and wildcrafted ingredients that perform to the highest standards.  In the end, they even go beyond organic!  Here is an exert from their website-

Max and Tanja lovingly source ingredients only from farmers, cooperatives and distillers who carefully harvest wild plants, or practice organic farming, in harmony with nature its seasons and its rhythm. We need them to consider plants as beings of light that are respected and revered.

The line is blended by hand in small artisan batches, making sure no detail is spared.  After blending by hand, they are then bottled in violet/amber glasses to preserve and protect it.  I loved reading that their whole process of creating and manufacturing Max and Me takes place in the midst of a flower garden-how appropriate.  The care and attention to detail of this line is truly special.

Circle of Protection-

The heroic product among the Max and Me line is the Circle of Protection.  It’s a body oil, but it’s hard to even call it “just” a body oil.  It really is something so much more.  The ingredients include some of the best organic oils.  From argan, rosehip, marula and magnolia, just to name a few.  The oil is thicker in consistency but not greasy feeling at all.  It goes on smooth and doesn’t leave a weird residue.  Your skin feels perfectly hydrated and not wet feeling.  I have to tell you about the smell-so wonderful!  With notes of jasmine, geranium, and rose that literally awaken your senses and uplift you.  It isn’t a strong smell at all.  I can lightly smell it throughout the day, which I love. I apply mine after the shower once I’ve towel dried off.  My pores in my skin are open from the warm shower and they drink in this beautiful oil.  Suffice to say I can’t get enough!

Travel Size Circle of Protection + Enchanted Face Oil

The sidekicks this month are a travel size Circle of Protection and a sample of Max and Me’s award winning Enchanted Face oil.  The travel size can be given to someone special whom you want to experience the amazing oil or you can savor it for yourself and use it for travel.  I’m going to gift mine to my mom with her Mother’s Day gift.  She is the epitome of love and grace and I couldn’t think of a better oil for her to enjoy.  The Enchanted Face Oil is another all star product among the Max and Me line.  It got me addicted just long enough to realize how amazing it is and how much more I wanted of it!  The oil smells so wonderful!  I smell notes of rose, sandalwood, jasmine and lavender.  The organic oils in the facial oil are some of the best.  Including some of my favorite facial oils of argan, marula, pomegranate, primrose and macadamia oil.  These oils work together to regenerate, protect and soothe the skin.  It feels so rich going on and leaves your skin feeling balanced and moisturized.  A rare and exquisite facial oil.

This month it’s all about the Circle of Protection and Beauty Heroes and Max and Me have created a unique opportunity for a global meditation.  For more information and how to be a part, read more here.
