Spa Heroe’s To The Rescue! June Unboxing.

IMG_8782

YES. Another amazing non-toxic, organic beauty box subscription to chat about! I love a great beauty box! Okay, so I’m a bit late to the June unboxing…don’t be mad! Either way, these are so fun! Today, I’ll be sharing with you the June beauty box kindly sent to me by Spa Heroes. This company is on a mission, a very specific one:

“We’re on a mission to change the way you look at skin care – and hair care and sun care and any other beauty product that touches your skin.”

Fun fact: Did you know that beauty product ingredient regulations in the U.S. haven’t had a serious update since 1948? In the meantime, the European Union has banned nearly 1,373 beauty product ingredients that research has shown to be harmful to personal health.

“We think you’re exceptional. Your skincare products should be, too.”

Spa Heroes curated beauty product selections are all completely free and clear of ingredients that could be hazardous to your health. Instead, each one is packed with natural Superpower ingredients that activate your body’s very own beauty superpowers like cell regeneration, moisture retention, and the glow of good health. (Who wants the good health glow!? ME!!!!)

 

When you subscribe to Spa Heroes monthly beauty box, you receive one full-sized beauty product every month. Each and every Hero Product meets SH’s healthy ingredient, high-performance criteria and has been approved by our esteemed panel of Spa Experts. They’ve done some serious homework on these products, so you don’t have to!

“We’re committed to creating a culture of wellness, joy and ease.”

Your monthly beauty box subscription to Spa Heroes saves you money on first-run, super fresh products. Subscribers can enjoy a discounted price on monthly selections – up to almost 60% off – and the luxury of the some of the spa world’s most effective products delivered right to your door. You also get first dibs on special offers, private sales and spa discounts offered by our Experts’ spas. I mean…win/win anyone? (Here’s the exact subscription info from their site!)

Another thing! What I think is so unique about Spa Heroes is their Pocket Guide of Ingredient Intelligence I’ve attached below!

 

The guide, which you receive printed in your monthly beauty box, breaks down the 20 most prevalent toxic ingredients, and highlights all the natural superpowers and how they benefit your skin. I think it is so amazing that Spa Heroes keeps out more than just the 20 Villains! Basically, the guide is meant to help women eliminate some of the worst of what’s out there, easily, so it’s not an intimidating research project. A guide, guiding (ha) you to make the right, healthy, non-toxic choices – perfect!

The Disappearing Act of Jane Iredale

Left – Disappear Concealer / Right – Circle\Delete Concealer

 

I like my concealers just like the next girl…I mean, you gotta hide those red/blueish circles sometimes, amirite ladies? Anyways, I have been on the hunt for an awesome organic, non-toxic under-eye concealer and just a regular all-over concealer. I’ve found it! Jane Iredale has done it again, a tried, tested and true brand that is respected by many and it contains great ingredients!

 

Jane’s Circle\Delete is amazing you guys! I am shade #1 and this concealer completely neutralizes redness along with brightens up the face. Can’t you tell?

 

Circle\Delete on right under-eye. (Left under-eye without it)

 

I love it for little areas one my face that need brightening too! (Forehead, bridge of nose, etc.) I’m sure you’re wondering why there are two different shades in there. Well, it is an eye conditioner and concealer in one and there are two shades so that you can mix them together and achieve the correct colour for your under-eye area. Some women like to really brighten it up, some like to just hide and do a wee bit of brightening. This lets you achieve both! Which I love.

 

The concealer contains Moringa butter and avocado oil, both high in vitamins A, C, D and E.  Here’s a lil glimpse into what these wonderful ingredients do.

  • Moringa Seed Oil: moisturizes and conditions skin, as well as provides antioxidant protection. Soothes and calms.
  • Laminaria Ochroleuca: Extract: Repairs UV damage. Moisturizes. Provides bacterial protection.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract: Calms. Protects. (Potent antioxidant)

Can’t forget the Disappear Concealer!

  • A matte, oil-free, opaque concealer that camouflages distractions such as acne, scars, tattoos, veins and port wine stains (not sure about this one, haha) and contains ingredients that may help to clear blemishes.
  • State-of-the-art liposome formula contains so much pigment that two layers will cover almost everything, including black tattoos.
  • Provides an opaque finish.

 

It’s key ingredients being:

  • Superoxide Dismutase: Protects.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract: Calms. Protects. Provides bacterial protection.
  • Vitamin C: Helps to reverse UV damage. Protects.
