Most of you will probably have already seen the contents of the Beauty Heroes March Box as there’s been a lot of sneaky peaks and posts on social media, but I still like to share my thoughts each month on the box!
This month’s hero brand is SkinOwl, one that I’ve had my eye on for a little while.
“SkinOwl’s sole mission is to educate you about your skin & deliver the best products, so that skin “care” can be the catalyst to caring about every genuinely important facet of your life. And why not? Your happiness is worth all the world’s weight in gold.”
The hero product in the box is the Mangosteen Beauty Drops, worth a huge $85. With a short ingredient list of just two ingredients, this oil aims to prove that less is more. South African baobab oil and Southeast Asian mangosteen oil are the only ingredient you’ll find in this bottle.
Both work to calm inflammation, soothe and clear acne, protect from oxidative stress and fortify skin with essential minerals. Baobab is loaded with magnesium, calcium, vitamin C and mangosteen is used throughout Asia for its antibacterial and antiviral benefits. Both of these oils sound like they will work well with my blemish-prone skin and I was eager to try this oil…and oh wow, it smells AMAZING! I have used this almost every night for the last four/five days and my skin seems to be liking it so far!
The side-kick in the March box is the SkinOwl Heroic Helichrysum. This all-organic spring blend features dried yarrow, helichrysum, cornflower, calendula petals, rose petals and buds, French lavender super blue and chamomile.
This can be used as a facial steam at home…simply fill a large bowl with boiling water, add 2 table spoons of the blend of organic herbs and petals and cover the bowl, allowing the product to steep like tea for 2-3 minutes. Place your face over the bowl and cover your head with a towel. Breathe deeply for 3-5 minutes while the steam penetrates the skin and follow with the Mangosteen Beauty Drops.
You can get your hands on this box (worth $91!) for just $39 plus delivery until 20th March here. As a Beauty Heroes member you also get 15% off their online shop which boasts a range of natural & organic skincare brands too.
