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!

Beauty Heroes February Discovery: Osmia

Beauty Heroes February Discovery: Osmia

I get so excited to see what’s in the Beauty Heroes Box each month…like giddy!  Every month it’s full of something very special.  This month was no exception!  Osmia isn’t knew to Beauty Heroes.  Their products are just so good, it’s easy to have them a second time.  This month’s heroic product is the Night Body Oil.  Before I get into why it’s become a staple in my night time routine, let me fill you in on what makes Beauty Heroes so different than other beauty boxes.

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, now that you know why Beauty Heroes is a must for any green beauty newbie or expert, let’s carry on with why Osmia’s Night Body Oil is SO good!

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

Night Body Oil is a blend of so many luxe oils.  I’m talking almond, jojoba, rosehip, borage, coconut-yeah it’s made from some serious goodness.  Then a proprietary blend of organic and wild-harvested essential oils and CO2 extracts get added in.  What does this bad boy smell like?  A little slice of tranquil bliss.  With lavender, roman chamomile and atlas cedar- it calms your senses.  The perfect antidote for ending any day.  The essential oils in it really cue your mind to calm down, and unwind.  I love that the smell isn’t strong at all.  You smell the scent at first stronger then it quickly fades as you massage it on your skin.  For best results, apply to wet skin and let it soak in.  The consistency of the oil is so lovely.  It absorbs right in, leaving your skin smooth and hydrated, yet not greasy.  A serious skin treat.  Say goodbye to dry skin and a fuzzy mind, and hello to moisturized skin and a relaxed disposition.  Not to mention this decadence is housed in a glass pump bottle-making the whole experience even better.  This is one night ritual I have happily added in my routine!

This month’s sidekick is Osmia’s Lip Doctor.  A superior lip balm that leaves parched lips packing.  With ingredients like avocado oil, olive oil, cocoa butter-just to name a few, this little guy packs a serious hydrating punch!  There’s no essential oils either, just super hydrating oils and butters.  I love that it’s in a fatter tube, as opposed to a jar, nice change of pace.

I love the whole idea behind this month’s herogram card.  To make night time habits or rituals that help ease you into that restful space.  For me my night time skin routine is one ritual that is truly calming and relaxing for me.  Not only is it an act of self love, but it’s 10 minutes out of my day where I focus solely on myself.  Not on my kids, husband, the blog, dinner, etc.  It’s a window of time that forces me to breathe, relax and remember to care for me.  I cherish those 10 minutes.  I encourage each one of you to find that night ritual for yourself.  Whether it’s reading, writing or maybe a bubble bath.  Do something that welcomes that restful space for yourself.

If you haven’t signed up for Beauty Heroes yet, I would highly recommend you do.  This subscription box is taking the green beauty scene by storm and offers only the best of the best each month.  Sign up here!!!  Also, be sure to check out the Beauty Store here for all the best of green beauty.  Every month Beauty Heroes offers a Love More Promotion.  This offer is for non-members and members.  February’s Love More promotion is a full size Vapour Organic Siren Lipstick in Courage when you spend  $125+ in the Beauty Store.

Glowing Beet’s One Year Anniversary Box

Glowing Beet’s One Year Anniversary Box

I can’t believe Glowing Beet’s is a year old…say what?!   I’m so grateful to have been a part of this amazing company since the beginning.  I love the mission of what they’re about and the quality of products they bring every month.  This box is great no matter where you’re at in your green journey.  As a seasoned green beauty enthusiast, I still get excited each month to see what’s in the box.  It’s one of a kind and I’m so happy to celebrate their first birthday!  Of course they pulled out all the stops on this one-some serious green beauty loot in this month’s box.  Read on to learn more about Glowing Beets monthly subscription.

Why Glowing Beets?  Well, for starters they include high quality indie brands and they make it so simple.  Their website alone is so easy to navigate and browse.  They have one box, it’s $29.95-a steal for high end green beauty products.  The boxes are all the same, but may vary slightly.  For ex. some boxes may get a different lipstick color, but they’re all from the same brand.  All boxes are shipped at the end of the month once you’re a subscriber, and if you order during the month it will be shipped out within a few days, up until the 15th of the month.  You can sign up for one box, otherwise you will be billed monthly.

I love the concept of Glowing Beets for those who are new to the green beauty scene.  They give you a good selection of products, so you’re able to test them out without making a big commitment at first.  They also offer special discounts to those brands if you do like them-how cool is that?!  Glowing Beets does the research for the best products so you don’t have too.  They include a card in each box that lists what the products are.

So let’s get on with the review of this month’s goodies!

LILFOX Mystic Awakening Rosemary Toning Mist- (vegan/cruelty free & gluten free)

I was so jazzed to see LILFOX in this month’s box!  I have tested and reviewed LILFOX in the past and loved their quality and commitment to ingredients.  This toning mist is the perfect mist post cleanse before serums or oils.  It offers a bit of hydration but nothing overwhelming.  My skin feels dewy and balanced after application.  It smells of subtle rosemary and it’s so refreshing.  Can we talk about their packaging?!  So on point.  Their products are packed in amethyst glass to help preserve the contents, and protect the biodiversity of the formula.  Swoon!  A great addition to anyone’s daily skincare routine.  $40

LILFOX Maracuja+Rose Youthful Vixen Face Nectar- (vegan/cruelty free & gluten free)

Ohh this nectar is so good!  First off I love that the scent is so subtle, just a hint of rose.  I prefer face oils to be mild in the scent department and this one is perfect.  I applied it right after the Rosemary Toning Mist and it was divine.  My skin drank it up and there was no oily residue left over- can I get an amen?!  I love when oils/serums settle into the skin and not just sit on top.  This one gives my skin the hydration it needs but no greasiness.  I dig it!  I woke up with happy, plump skin.  It was the perfect oil before makeup application too.  This is a great facial oil for anyone-top notch ingredients, subtle smell and perfect absorption, the formula is legit.  It’s also safe during pregnancy.  $40

ShopKnotty Glowing Beets Anniversary Bracelet-

This is too cute!  I was swooning over this bracelet when I saw it.  First off rose gold is so hot right now!  The bracelet is so dainty and perfect for the wrist.  It has a small pendant with the Glowing Beet’s logo on it.  Such a perfect gift for Glowing Beet’s first birthday celebration!  As always with most jewelry be careful to avoid water and soaps to preserve it.  $34

Prim Botanicals Perfume Oil in Mademoiselle Swell-

Love finding new green beauty perfumes, so I was so excited to see this perfume roller ball in the box.  Made of pure essentials oils, this perfume smells like sweet and floral.  It’s not too overwhelming at all, which I love.  With notes of French neroli, Egyptian jasmine, Sicilian lemon and Himalayan Cedarwood.  This is the perfect size to throw in a purse and reapply throughout the day.  The best thing about it?  It actually lasted!  If you’ve been in green beauty long enough you know that natural scents don’t last long-you’re lucky if you get a couple of hours out of it!  This lasted well into the afternoon-I was shocked!  If you’ve been looking for a natural scent but haven’t found one, this may just be your ticket.  A nice clean sweet scent that actually lasts!  $42

Jacq’s Organics Hibiscus & Aloe Bath Bomb-

Talk about good timing for a bath bomb!  This mama needed her spa night and this was just the ticket to get me relaxing.  I dropped this bath bomb into the bath and it released it’s goodness.  My skin felt so soft and smooth.  The scents of juniper and geranium gave my mood a boost.  I truly felt so relaxed!  The Aloe Vera really helped to seal in the moisture.  I love the dried hibiscus pedals in the bath bomb-such a nice touch.  Often people think of bath bombs as an extra frivalty but in my opinion things like this almost become a necessity when they calm your senses and create a spa atmosphere right in your bathroom.  Why not love on your self a little?  I know as a mom it’s a must for me to take some time to just breathe and treat myself to something.  This bath bomb is just the thing I needed-highly recommend!  $5

Glowing Beet’s January Box Review

Glowing Beet’s January Box Review

By now you guys know how much I love Glowing Beet’s Beauty Box!  They consistently offer quality green beauty products, and the price is reasonable.  Every month I’m more in awe of the last box, which is hard to do.  That’s why I’ve teamed up with Glowing Beets to be their official brand ambassador!  I couldn’t be more excited to partner up with a company that not only brings green beauty to the every day women, but wants to bring the best of green beauty.  We have some great things up our sleeve, and can’t wait to share them with you.  So if you haven’t signed up, get on it!  Here’s a little more info. on Glowing Beets if you haven’t heard about them yet.

Why Glowing Beets?  Well, for starters they include high quality indie brands and they make it so simple.  Their website alone is so easy to navigate and browse.  They have one box, it’s $29.95-a steal for high end green beauty products.  The boxes are all the same, but may vary slightly.  For ex. some boxes may get a different lipstick color, but they’re all from the same brand.  All boxes are shipped at the end of the month once you’re a subscriber, and if you order during the month it will be shipped out within a few days, up until the 15th of the month.  You can sign up for one box, otherwise you will be billed monthly.

January Box Review-

LILFOX Coco Lime Lip Balm-

This lip balm smells so GOOD!!  I want to eat it, no joke.  It smells like lime sherbet.  It’s pink in color, but when you apply it, goes on pretty clear.  The consistency isn’t goopy at all, but really smooth.  It even gives your lips a nice cool sensation.  It comes in the cutest little metal tin.  The perfect size for fitting in a clutch when you’re going out on the town.  $8

FITGLOW Renew Serum-

This serum has a more gel like consistency.  It’s not a typical oil serum.  It’s packed full of hyaluronic acid and retinol, some serious anti-aging ingredients.  It is clear in color and goes on smooth.  I noticed it filled in my lines, and helped create a more even look to my skin.  It isn’t moisturizing, so I applied my moisturizer after.  It really is perfect as a primer in the day time, and as anti-aging treatment at night.  If you haven’t tried FITGLOW Beauty products yet you’re missing out, they’re all great!  $89

Rustic MAKA Pachy Natural Deodorant-

I was actually pleasantly surprised by this deodorant.  To be honest, I’m extremely picky when it comes to natural deodorant, there just hasn’t been a lot I’ve been impressed with.  Green Tidings is my go too.  However, this was nice for a change.  The citrus lime smell is great.  I also love that it comes in a stick form and goes on super smooth.  It kept me smelling good throughout the day and kept my dryness at bay.  Although, I wasn’t able to get another day out of it.  Even if I reapplied it seemed to not mask the odor.  I feel I’m a sweaty person in general though…sorry for the tmi!  Everyone has such different preferences when it comes to deodorant and this one may be just your ticket.  I love the size-perfect for travel!  $5.95

PLANT Apothecary Body Wash-

I was so excited to get this in my Glowing Beets box!  The perfect body wash-no joke.  It smells amazing!  I received the “Get Happy” body wash, which has a Geranium and Peppermint scent, and you all know I’m obsessed with peppermint.  It’s refreshing and suds up perfectly.  My skin doesn’t feel dry at all after using but moisturized.  Best part?  The ingredients are so clean!  It’s safe to say this is my new favorite body wash! $20
