PERFECT MATCH: BEAUTY HEROES + BEAUTYCOUNTER


My last post covered an in-depth view of Beautycounter, and I just so happened to detail a handful of my favorite products - so you can imagine my huge delight when 2 of them showed up in February's Beauty Heroes Box!



Outside of being a Consultant who loves this brand's mission, I am thrilled these two products are featured because they truly are two of the best representations of the company -  that clean beauty can be chic and luxurious. I also love it being featured in Beauty Heroes because I know not everyone loves a Multi-Level Marketing platform or product. This offers another avenue for those interested in these gorgeous products to experience them without even worrying about any of that.


HERO PRODUCT

Lustro Rose Neroli Body Oil, $73



The first word that comes to mind is sumptuous. I have tried a hundred body oils in my lifetime, and I've yet to find one that tops this one in smell and absorption. The combination of the Jojoba, Sweet Almond, Grapeseed, Rosehip, Seabuckthorn, Argan, Marula, Sunflower and Apricot oils is basically the who's who of super power oils. They work together seamlessly to hydrate, tone, firm, combat environmental damage and diffuse the signs of aging all while transporting you with the heavenly, but yet not overpowering, scent of Rose and Neroli, distilled from blooms to form rare organic oils. 

You won't feel greasy or slippery, just soft and supple with a major glow. I'm telling you, this is such a treat for your skin and I've yet to go without a bottle on my shelves for the last 2 years (it's that good). And I do understand it's a higher pricepoint, but A) if you're getting it through the Beauty Heroes Box it's $39, and B) as a subscriber if you want to replinish your supply you can get it through the Beauty Heroes Clean Beauty Shop at a discount. 


Sidekick 

Lip Sheer in Petal, $30



Perfectly pink and sophisticated, every woman should own this Lip Sheer in Petal (and also Twig). I don't know how they crafted this hue, but it's genius. Pinks can be a touch too warm or a touch too cool, or even err on the tween side, but this one sits right in the middle, making it ideal for any skin tone and adding a touch of polish to any look. And the formulation itself  makes this hands down my favorite item in the entire Beautycounter line. Yes, ENTIRE LINE. It feels like a buttery balm, but has just the right amount of pigment to provide even coverage of color.

Beautycounter's Lip Sheers are hydrating and soft due to their plant-based ingredients like jojoba esters, they're also deliciously scented with real vanilla. There are no synthetic flavors or ingredients linked to health harm. In fact, the EWG rates this as a 1, which is basically the best you can get.



WHAT IS BEAUTY HEROES?

As I mentioned, it's a monthly subscription box. For the price of $39 per month, you get one to two full-size, non toxic products that are comprised of "HERO" ingredients. Meaning, the ones that are good for you, ones that won't harm you, ones that nourish your skin and your soul. In the same shipment you usually get a smaller Sidekick product that is either a full size or a deluxe sample size that compliments the HERO product - another way to completely explore a line and see how it works into your routine. Typical value of the box is $75 dollars and above (this month it's $103). So you're at least getting double what your paying, if not 5x the value like the December box. 


Aside from the actual products, one thing I love about the box is that it's educational. It always comes with a pocket guide that goes into detail about each product and also why it's a HERO. There's also resources that explain the Villains, or the things we should avoid at all cost. With every box I learn more and more about the decisions to make, and it becomes like second nature. If you're trying to take steps toward cleaner beauty, this is such a great tool to not only inform yourself, but test some of the most prestigious products on the market.


Oh, and as I mentioned above, subscribers get 15% off of the Beauty Heroes Clean Beauty Shop, which has every Hero Product featured, so if you love it you can always refill your stock at a discount!



DID YOU KNOW?


You can gift a Beauty Heroes subscription! That's right, you can share the best clean beauty box in the business in 1, 3 or 6 month increments. Talk about the perfect Valentine! (And yes, gifting to yourself totally counts)
