Beauty Heroes: January Discovery- Jane Scrivner

Beauty Heroes January Discovery

Beauty Heroes January Discovery with Jane Scrivner products

I was so excited to try this brand out.  I hadn’t tried anything that she’s made and I knew I was in for a special treat.  Let’s just say I was not disappointed!  I can’t wait to share all the details with you!  But before I do, if you’re not familiar with Beauty Heroes Clean Beauty Box- allow me to introduce you here.

Jane Scrivner products are so adaptable. Going from in the spa treatment room to your counter sink at home.  Her approach to skincare is both down to earth and results driven.  She is known for her 5-A-Day Facial Routine.  I love that her products are loved from such a wide variety of people.  I couldn’t wait to dig into them!

Heroic Product: Cleansing Balm + Two Fluffy Cleansing Mitts- The heroic product is just that, heroic.  It definitely stands out among other cleansing balms I’ve used.  I just use about a dime size amount and rub in circular motions all over my skin.  I then use the fluffy cleansing mitt, get it damp and wipe all the excess balm off my skin. I’m left with balanced skin, that feels hydrated but not oily.  It feels like butter on the skin, it has such a great slip to it.  Made with jojoba oil, beeswax and 9 essential oils, this is the first step in Jane’s 5-A-Day Facial Routine.  If you struggle with dry skin- I can’t recommend this enough- such a great cleanser especially for dry winter months.  Plus, who doesn’t want a fluffy cleansing mitt! This mitt is divine.  I love slipping my hand in it to easily remove all the cleansing balm. 

Sidekick: OO Cream- This cream is no sidekick in my opinion. It really stands on it’s own so well.  It’s a bright golden orange hue from rosehip.  I was so excited to see how this would stack up to other moisturizers.  Well, I was impressed- very impressed.  I’ve now been using this every night since I got it in the mail and can’t stop!  It’s SO hydrating.  Some creams leave your skin hydrated for a minute but this one lasts.  It really sinks into the skin so nicely.  I wake up in the morning and my skin still feels supple and moisturized, but not oily- I repeat not oily.  Can I talk to you about the scent?  I love the scent.  It smells like vanilla- soothing and warm vanilla. It’s really an amazing product!  If you’ve been looking for a cream to truly hydrate your skin in this winter season or any time- this is it.  I can’t stop and won’t stop using it!

Best part is you can get this fabulous box right now for such a steal!  This box is valued at $98 but you can snag it for $42.95.  This really is such stellar box- I wouldn’t be surprised if they sell out!  Hop on it now if you’re thinking of getting it.  Get Beauty Heroes January Discovery here!  

The Clean Beauty Box(formerly Art Of Organics): January Box Rescue

Clean Beauty Box Review

The Clean Beauty Box January Discovery Rescue.

One Love Organics Vitamin C Serum- So excited to see One Love Organics Vitamin C Serum. This serum is unlike anything I’ve used. It is a rich hearty face serum, that really delivers some serious skin nutrients. With plant ingredients like rosehip, baobab, and acerola + seabuckthorn that help bring the plant based vitamin c. Your skin will feel glowing and radiant! It sinks right into the skin and gives your face an overall soft hydrated feeling. The smell is very light too with subtle hints of rosemary. I apply this right before my oils, while my skin is slightly damp and it soaks right in. It’s a different formula too because it has 2 difference types of vitamin C. The first is green tea seed oil and the Vitamin E and ascorbyl palmitate. A double punch to help fight free radicals and keep your skin in tip top shape!

Henne Organics Luxury Lip Balm and Lip Mask- I have tried their lip balm in the past and loved it. It’s so nice that it’s in a stick form, making it easy to apply to the lips without getting your fingers all messy. Plus, it hydrates for a long time! The ingredients are amazing too. The lip mask is meant to be applied on the lips and left for 15-30 minutes. It is meant to rejuvenate your lips and give them a little tlc. With ingredients like sea buckthorn and evening primrose, your lips will literally be all ready for some serious smooching! I loved how hydrated my lips felt afterwards. Such a treat for the lips.

This box is perfect for the winter dry months when your skin could use some r&r. The box is valued at $131, but you can get it right now for $41.95! Such a great box and the price is amazing! Snag the The Clean Beauty Box here!

The Detox Box For January: The Beauty Chef

The Detox Box Natural Beauty

The Detox Box for January featuring The Beauty Chef.

Glow Inner Beauty Powder- This organic superfood blend was created by Carla Oates. She struggled with eczema and allergies and was finally able to find solutions after seeing a naturopath.  After finding healing herself she created a line of probiotic rich superfoods.  I love the connection she brings to glowing skin and whole nutrient dense foods.  Her Glow Inner Beauty Powder is the perfect marriage of gut boosting superfoods and skin balancing nutrients.  You can add this to smoothies, water, on top of yogurt, really the list is endless.  The ingredients speak for themselves, from maqui berry, green tea powder, ginger and turmeric.  The perfect antidote to kick off your new year full of health!

Collagen Inner Beauty Boost- This pairs perfectly with the Glow Inner Beauty Powder.  Use it in smoothies, water or your fave dessert.  Great for skin elasticity and overall firmness.  A combination of zinc and vitamin c work together to help strengthen hair and nails.  Also, helps to protect the skin from free radicals and environmental damage through antioxidants. It even helps the gut with powerful probiotics.  You could say this little bottle does a lot!  

This box is perfect to kick off your new year with a good dose of health!  Snag the box before it’s too late.  Grab The Detox Box here! 

 

December Natural Beauty Box Roundup

December Natural Beauty Box Roundup

Another month brings December’s Natural Beauty Box Roundup!  I’ve got the lowdown on all the latest in green beauty.  As the boxes roll out, I’ll be sharing my reviews and all the juicy deets.  First up this month is Beauty Heroes!

Beauty Heroes-

If you haven’t heard of Beauty Heroes and want to learn more about this “IT” green beauty box, check it out here.  This month we are seeing the coveted green beauty brand Max and Me in the box.

If you aren’t familiar with Max and Me- let me introduce you.  This exquisite line is from the beautiful country of Austria.  This line represents a love story between the two founders.  Max and Tanja.  Max and Tanja are 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!

Beauty Heroes review Natural

Max and Me Sweet Serenity Mask and Wash is this month’s Beauty Heroes Heroic Product!

Sweet Serenity Mask and Wash-

This mask and wash is by far one of my very favorite masks!  It is just delectable.  The smell literally transforms me to a calming and soothing place with cacao, honey and mangosteen.  I can’t get enough.  As I write this my jar is completely gone…I know sad.  I literally used every last drop.  The beauty of this product is it can be used in many ways.  One way is as a cleanser.  I use it to rub away all the day’s grime and wipe off with a warm washcloth.  My skin feels renewed and refreshed.  I also love using it as a mask.  First, I cleanse my skin to remove all the dirt from the day and then follow with the Sweet Serenity Mask.  I would then go about my nighttime routine and then at the end wash it off with a warm washcloth.  My skin loved every drop.  This little ritual of cleaning and masking has given my skin some serious restoration and glow.  I would also use this as an exfoliant in the morning  and leave it on after rubbing on my face while I brushed my teeth.  It worked perfectly as a mask/cleanser/exfoliant combo.  After the mask my skin is hydrated, balanced and glows.  I can’t say enough about this product!

Have you seen Beauty Heroes latest Lifestyle Discovery? Don’t miss out- check it out here! 

The Intuitive Botanical Facial Mist-

This is Max and Me’s newest product and it’s another decadent one!  Smells so lovely with woodsy and floral notes.  I love spraying this on my skin before my serums and oils.  It not only helps to heal the skin with Helichrysum, but also ground and center the mind with hyssop.  It may be the sidekick but this beauty stands on it’s own two feet!

Boxwalla-

Boxwalla is a bi-monthly box, meaning you only get it every other month.  I really like this concept because then you get to savor the products.  It’s nice to be able to really use them before getting another box.  Boxwalla also does a great job of giving you products that are really indie and artisan.  I love this!  I discover new brands and products all the time through Boxwalla.  To learn more about Boxwalla check them out here!

This month is a new brand I haven’t seen before.  The brand is Earth Wise Beauty. I was excited to learn that they are actually made in Spokane, Washington- not too far from me!  The basis of Earth Wise Beauty products is to heal the skin.  They’re an organic skincare line that go to great lengths to produce a product that is both holistic in every way and effective.  I was impressed with their whole process.  No detail goes unnoticed.  They even share a love for sustainability. Basically they check all the boxes!  I was SO excited to dive into their skincare treats.

This month we are seeing their Yasuni Face Balm and their Resiliency Face Serum.  They both are such unique products.  I couldn’t wait to use them and see what all the fuss was about!

Boxwalla natural beauty box

Boxwalla’s December box featuring Earth Wise Beauty’s Yasuni Face Balm and Resiliency Face Serum.

Resiliency Face Serum-

I am used to face serums coming in a liquid form but this serum comes as more in a jelly form and in a jar.  It smells absolutely heavenly!  Notes of rose embody the whole serum.  It’s based in aloe and firms up the skin nicely and refreshes it.  It plumps up my skin, while at the same time minimizing puffiness- yes I’m looking at you under eye bags.  It’s just quite lovely and so different then anything I’ve used.  I find it perks up my skin while at the same time nourishing it.  Plus, I love that it’s anti-acne and really helps to heal the skin.

Yasuni Face Balm-

This face balm is another unique product that I found myself going back to again and again.  It’s a face balm for sensitive skin.  Feels light on the skin but also still very hydrating.  I was also drawn to it because it doesn’t contain any essential oils or absolutes.  Something very rare to find in clean beauty.  Making this perfect for sensitive skin and those who might not do well with any scent.  The golden hue of the balm instantly leaves your skin with a glow as well.  I applied this after using the face serum.  Such a lovely combo!  I now want to try more of Earth Wise Beauty!

Get this month’s Boxwalla box here!  This month’s value is over $170 but you can get it for $50!  Another great thing about Boxwalla is that you don’t have to subscribe for a long membership but can just buy the box monthly!  Check it out here!

Natural Beauty Box November Roundup

Natural Beauty Box November Roundup

Ok, it’s time for the monthly natural beauty box November roundup!  I finally took the cue from my green beauty blogger bestie- Lisa from This Organic Girl and I’m creating a round up!  I’ve been doing individual posts but many of you seemed excited when I polled you about the green beauty box roundup that I thought I would give it a try and see how it goes.  So cheers to one post with lots of juicy green beauty boxes!

Beauty Heroes-

Natural Skincare review Beauty Heroes

Check out Beauty Heroes November Discovery- Natural Inlight Skincare! (Photo Cred. Beauty Heroes)

This month we are seeing Inlight in the box.  This is a luxe brand made in the UK.  The mastermind behind this skincare line is Dr. Mariano Spiezia.  His creations come to life through plant alchemy.  He uses the brilliance of plants to create skincare products that perform.  He has one formula that he’s particularly known for and it’s infused in all of his formulas. This formula is called the Bio-lipophilic Matrix®.  This blend of beneficial plant-based phytonutrient oils imitate the sebum’s texture while guarding and restoring the skin.  Sounds like something I want in my skincare products!

The heroic product for the month is the Line Softener Intensive. The name just as it suggests helps to soften lines and bring a youthfulness to the skin. It’s filled with so many plant oils, and smells divine!  Oils such as macademia, argan, jojoba and many more. Your skin literally is getting nourished with the plants and yet you’re not left with a greasy feel.  It comes in a dark glass jar and the cutest wooden spoon to scoop the product out with.  I apply it at night and wake up to refreshed skin!

The sidekick is the Super Food Mask. Another noteworthy product from Inlight.  It’s filled with antioxidants that help promote cell turnover and collagen production.  It also replenishes the skin’s moisture balance and protects the skin from environmental factors through spirulina, chlorophyll, barley leaf and rose hip seed oil.  It’s a winning combination!  Leave it on for 10 minutes and watch your skin transform!

Art of Organics-

This month we are seeing two products from the British line AMLY Botanicals.  This brand is also based out of the UK and is a new one to me!  Their products represent a blending of old and new.  They use many old traditional ways in their formulas but also love to implement new methods using bio-actives.  Basically you end up with a skincare line that is positively active and alive!

The first product is their City Screen Protective Face Serum.  This isn’t like any other face cream you’ve used- trust me.  It’s full of active ingredients that literally change your skin and improve the overall protection of the skin.  It fills positively lovely on the skin.  My skin feels soft, supple and protected- which makes sense.  The ingredients creating this protection on the skin are echinacea, marine algae, gotu kola, nettle, green tea and marine samphire.  This serum is perfect for those who want to help give their skin an extra layer of protection whether you’re in the city or in the country.  Love applying this before my makeup!

The second product is Digital Detox.  This is their silver rich face mist.  I didn’t think much of this mist when I saw it but once I read up on it and used it, I must say I’ve become quite hooked!  It’s meant to not only help you remove toxins from your skin but also invigorate you and your immediate dwelling. It’s meant to help get rid of the negative effects of the digital exposure we constantly are under.  From your office, or work space to your home- this mist does some serious detoxing!  I already have big plans to take it with me on my travels in a few weeks.  The ingredients are meant to help detoxify the air from himalyan pink sea salt, and magnesium sulfate.  Plus, juniper fruit oil and ylang ylang help ease mental fog.  If you see me, I’m probably carrying this with me!

The Detox Box-

The-Detox-Box-Natural-Beauty

The Detox Box November Natural Beauty Box featuring: Odacite.

Odacite is taking center stage this month in The Detox Box!  I have had the pleasure of trying many Odacite products and I have to say they don’t disappoint.  The Maker of Odacite is Valerie Grandury.  A breast cancer survivor, who was on the search for natural skincare products.  However, she didn’t find them.  As a result she created Odacite!  It’s a mix of luxe French skincare with laid back vibes of California living.  A perfect marriage if you ask me!

This month we are seeing the All-Embracing Serum.  This isn’t just for your face but for your whole body!  An oil that does it all- yep you heard me right.  Hydrating watermelon seed oil, calming and soothing oatmeal are just two of the power ingredients in this decadent oil.  I massage it on my skin right after showering while my skin is slightly damp and it soaks in so nicely.  I also love using it on my face too.  I apply after my hydrosol and my skin just soaks it all up.  It’s such a multi-tasker! Plus, you can’t go wrong with a dark glass bottle- swoon!

I was also delighted to see the Black Mint Cleanser in the box- a fave!  I was excited to see it come in a travel size tube.  I have the large glass bottle- not so friendly for traveling.  This cleanser feels cooling on the skin, gets rid of all dirt and makeup and leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean.  Wait, there’s more in this month’s box!  You also receive a crystal contour GUA SHA.  This rose quartz gua sha tool is perfect for performing facial massage.  Facial massage is such an amazing way to increase circulation, drain lymphatic system, and reduce puffiness.  I apply a little of the All-Embracing Serum first then I use the gua sha.  Trust me, once you incorporate gua sha into your life you’ll never go back!

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.

Beauty Heroes October Discovery LILFOX

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!

On to the review…

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.
