New for the summer are a few gold and rose gold highlighters, I personally like these more than the white highlighters, they seem to blend with medium to dark tones much better!

Want More Info on Beauty Heroes?

I have been an ambassador with Beauty Heroes since August 2015 and sometimes forget my readers may not know who they are and what they do!

Beauty Heroes is a monthly subscription box that offers full size products that have won us over in the Green/Clean Beauty world. Whether you're new to (and potentially overwhelmed by) the green beauty movement or are looking for new products selected by experts at a reasonable (and sometimes shockingly low) price, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by this service. 

  • As a member, you receive full size product(s) from the most esteemed, respected and sought-after brands on the clean beauty market for way less than the retail cost.
  • As a Brand Ambassador, I will use and test each product a few weeks before they are issued to subscribers, posting a review about the time you receive them in the mail!

I know, another subscription box? Not quite! Personally, subscription boxes aggravate me; they seem to just fill my house with more "stuff" I wouldn't have bought in the first place. But yet here I am, partnering with a "subscription service," but it's only because I truly believe what they provide is different. 

Unlike most subscription services, you won't be receiving a box full of random samples from a beauty liquidator full of toxic ingredients. The Beauty Heroes motto is to Use Less. Love More., so each shipment features one brand: A top tier full size 'Hero' and 'Sidekick' which they receive directly from the brand themselves.  

Previous hero products have been from the likes of Laurel Skin, Josh Rosebrook, Kahina Giving Beauty, In Fiore, Vintner's Daughter, True Botanicals, Skin Owl, Osmia Organics and more!

All items are hand selected by spa experts all over the country who agree each product provides superior results without any toxic ingredients. Even better, Beauty Heroes creates their product calendar so the products are not only seasonally appropriate, but alternate between face, body sun and hair care so you don't have to worry about receiving similar items back to back. After several months, your beauty cabinet should be stocked with game-changing products that  

  1. work  
  2. you love
  3. contain no harsh chemicals or toxins and
  4. didn't break the bank

Beauty Heroes also aims to help you learn the "Villain Ingredients" and how to avoid them, while promising to never include them in any product you are sent. Their Ingredient Intelligence Pocket Guide listing the most widely found Superpower and Villain Ingredients and is free for download. 

And what if you receive a product that doesn't work for you? No problem - they want you to be a satisfied customer and will refund your money.

Oh yes, the money.

The box is $39 per month for items that retail for up to $185! As a member, you also receive 15% off any item in their online shop

Plus - if you share a photo of your monthly box on instagram with the hashtag #herogram, you might be selected as one of three monthly winners to receive a free month's subscription!

You might be concerned about not knowing what you're getting yet, but trust's sooooo good. I was speechless at the value not only with the products themselves, but the extent at which Beauty Heroes and their experts go to dissect and test each product to ensure they line up with their values, including a commitment to cruelty-free beauty. 

I take my collaborations seriously and wouldn't invest my time, energy or reputation on something I don't think you won't love.
