Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
This month I had to wait a little longer to open my Beauty Heroes subscription box, as unfortunately it got stuck at customs, boo! I think because the $ isn’t very good at the minute, even though it has the same price on the box as usual, it was over the threshold. Hopefully I don’t get caught out next month!
Anyway…onto the goodies! This month’s Beauty Heroes box was all about love, seeing as we are in February. Inside the box are two beautiful full-size products from Beauty Counter. Beauty Heroes have mixed it up a little this month, as there’s a body product and a make-up product, which is great as I have a tonne of skincare I need to get through!
The most expensive product in the box is the Lustro Rose Neroli Body Oil, which retails for $73 which is just less than double the price of the box, amazing! This oil is rich in organic argan, marula, jojoba, grapeseed and rosehip oils and enhanced with seabuckthorn, meadowfoam, rice bran, sunflower, sweet almond and apricot seed oils to intensely hydrate dry skin. The scent is beautiful and comes from the Tunisian neroli and organic rose otto from Bulgaria.
This month’s sidekick is the product I was most excited to try, which is the Lip Sheer in the shade Petal. It’s described as a “silky smooth with a formula that is both moisturizing and lightweight.” It is lightly infused with organic vanilla planifolia sourced from Madagascar, along with other ingredients such as candelilla wax, castor seed oil and carnauba wax. It’s coming across a little darker in the photo than in real life. It is a gorgeous, sheer wash of colour on the lips and is perfect for putting on quickly as you don’t need a mirror and it’ll finish off any make-up look perfectly.
The ingredients aren’t quite as clean as I would like, however the packaging is just so to-die-for, I couldn’t resist trying it anyway. It is natural, and only scores a 1 on EWG so it’s not too bad, I just probably wouldn’t purchase one again. How beautiful is the packaging though?! (insert heart eye emoji)
You can sign up to Beauty Heroes here and if you sign up before 20th February you’ll receive this box! As a member of Beauty Heroes you’ll also get 15% off their online shop, which is full of natural and organic products. The box retails for $39 plus its around $18 for shipping so it works out at around £40.00.
