Beauty Heroes always offer amazing value, but they have outdone themselves with their November box. Valued at a mind-boggling $205 (you pay just $39!), it contains a full-sized beauty hero and two deluxe sidekicks. The featured brand this month is Ayuna, a luxe-minimalist skincare line from Spain.

Ayuna (Spanish for fasting) uses a ‘less is more’ approach to skincare, reducing skincare ‘to the essential.’ Their offerings have been edited down to just four products (there are two versions of the Cream, which makes it five products in total). These products are formulated with care and precision, and they feel both high-tech and artisanal at the same time. Their jars have a serene, almost monastic quality to them, and they almost look like works of art. They are hands down the best-looking jars I’ve seen in green beauty, and they really have taken packaging design to a whole new level.

Without further delay, let’s see what’s inside this month’s Beauty Heroes Ayuna box. View Post

I was really excited to receive this month’s Beauty Heroes box featuring Purify Face Wash and Activate Body Wash from American brand Linné. Being a Beauty Heroes ambassador, I received the box almost a month before its release, and I have been using these products regularly for the last month. Effective face washes are hard to find in the green beauty world, and I wanted to see if these worked… and I’m impressed.

Lately, I’ve been feeling a little disoriented. I don’t really know why, but I just feel like everything around me is in a state of flux. I started a new role at work a couple of months ago, and the challenges associated with that, combined with changes in my living arrangements and friendship circles have left me feeling a little confused. Everything is new again. I am developing new connections, and while that’s great, I do miss the comfort of the familiar. View Post

I’ve stated time and time again that Beauty Heroes is undoubtedly the best green beauty subscription service on the market. They hand pick the best natural brands, work closely with brand founders, and put a lot of time and effort into their curations (and their boxes always arrive on time!). A few months ago, I received an email from Beauty Heroes founder Jeannie Jarnot, and after sorting out the Melbourne-San Francisco time difference, we spoke for an hour over Skype. I’ve been trying their curations since, and I now have the proud distinction of being their first ever male/Australia-based ambassador. I can’t tell you how honoured and humbled I am to be associated with one of my favourite green beauty brands!

I engaged in a Q&A with Beauty Heroes, and you can read the full transcript below:  View Post

I guess you all know by now that I love Beauty Heroes. I genuinely think that it’s the best beauty subscription service around, and it continues to wow me every month. I liked last month’s box, however, some of the products didn’t really suit my hair type, so I had my fingers crossed for this month’s box. I’m glad to report that this month’s box not only met my expectations, but far exceeded it. I love the products so much that I’d call it my favourite Beauty Heroes box so far (this is my fourth box).

This month’s box contains two products from Lilfox, a green beauty brand based in Miami . The hero product is their Jungle Glow Enzyme Cleanser + Mask and the sidekick is their newly-launched Cleopatra Restorative Milk + Honey Beauty Mask. View Post
