Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the product including and why it is a “hero.”

They also detail the ingredients, benefits or “superpowers” of those ingredients, and provide details on the brand.

Now, onto the items!

UMA Intensely Nourishing Hair Oil – Value $70

This is the full-size “hero” for the box! It’s made with essential oils of Grapefruit, Lemon, Cypriol, Hibiscus, Yerba de Tago in a base of Grapeseed, Indian Gooseberry, Moringa and Jojoba oils. The result is a lovely-scented lightweight hair oil.

I only needed 1-2 drops on dry hair to add shine, fight frizz and add softness. (Anymore, and I ran into getting a greasy look.)

You can also apply this to damp hair to protect it from heat treatment. And you can use this as a treatment oil on your scalp – apply 5-6 drops to your roots, scalp and hair pre-shampoo or overnight.

(And that packaging – gorgeous!)

UMA Ultimate Brightening Face Mask – .7 oz Value $30

(This is an exclusive launch in the Beauty Heroes box – this mask isn’t available yet from UMA.)

The mask is made with sandalwood, orange peel, papaya, tomato, cinnamon, and essential oils. (With a base of bentonite clay, aloe vera, honey and rose water.) Or to quickly summarize – it smells amazing.

This mask didn’t completely dry in the 7 minutes I had to wear it, but definitely took some rubbing to wash it off when the time was up. While I can’t say I noticed any brightening effects, my skin felt much smoother and cleaner – that’s good enough for me!

Verdict: This month’s box has a value of $100. I think that’s great since it is over double the cost and features a full-size item. I really like both products, too. (And that hair oil should last me months!)

I’m impressed that Beauty Heroes consistently exposes me to new natural and organic beauty brands, and it’s great to try out a full-size item and you don’t have to worry about product overload either!

What do you think of the September 2016 Beauty Heroes box?

  1. I love boxes like these (Beauty Heroes, Pearlesque, Art of Organics Clean Beauty Box, and Boxwalla Beauty Box) which have introduced me to higher-end natural/organic brands that I would never have known existed otherwise. While I always love receiving a lot of samples in my boxes, I also really appreciate boxes like these that focus more on quality vs. quantity.

  2. I loved this box ! I have pretty fine hair and just a few drops of the hair oil worked great, the smell is pretty strong but it fades. I also didn’t really notice much of a brightening effect with the mask but it definitely made my face feel very soft.
