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.

Beauty Counter Body Oil in Rose Neroli – Value $73

This is the hero item for February. I really did not want to fall in love with a $73 body oil, but you can’t pick what products you love! I normally don’t like rose scents, but this scent combination is amazing – almost beachy! Fortunately, a little goes a long way with this oil, so I won’t need to restock for a while. The only issue is that I can’t find this exact scent for sale on the Beauty Counter site (I linked to the Rosemary + Citrus oil).

Beauty Counter Translucent Color Lip Sheer in Petal – Value $30

This is the side kick item for February! This lip sheer reminds me a little of the Too Faced La Creme Lipstick. Love the packaging on both, and I found both of the formulas to be very moisturizing. This one gives less pigment, though, so it is great for different looks. Here it is swatched:

Verdict: This month’s box has a value of $103. I think that’s great since it is over double the cost and features a full-size item. I signed up for this subscription again when I saw the Beauty Counter spoilers (I’ve liked what I’ve sampled from the brand so far), and it did not disappoint! I will use both of these products, so it’s a great value for me.

What do you think of the February 2016 Beauty Heroes box? Have you tried Beauty Counter products yet?

Beauty Heroes sends you a “hero” item each month (a.k.a. a full-size item) and a “sidekick” item (which is sometimes full-size, sometimes deluxe-size) from one featured brand.

I think I have fallen in love with Beauty Counter. I recently tossed a lot of my harmful ingredients makeup and so finding Beauty Counter was awesome through this box plus then PSMH sent out their cleanser and that 20% off coupon so score! Check out their websites ingredient list. It is such a great resource for looking up what ingredients actually are and do

This body oil sounds amazing! Looking at the past reviews though I would not be interested in yet another sunscreen.

They release their item early in the month so you have plenty of time to order if you like what they are sending.

Sophie

This is such wonderful value! There may not be a lot of items, but they do say quality > quantity.

Cindy

This is one of my favorite subscriptions. I believe they do send one full size item plus a ‘sidekick’ monthly. When I first signed up, there was a code for $10 off the first box in some blog which is how I happened to learn about this subscription. (Maybe they will give a code for your readers, Liz. Though I recently read that they may be nearing their subscription capacity.)

Cindy,
I love Beauty Heroes and had provided a coupon code on my blog back in the fall. When it expired I contacted the owner to ask if they would be issuing any more codes and she said that they were not at that time, and it didn’t sound like there were any plans to in the near future (I think that the codes were to entice new subscribers when they went through their re-branding from Spa Heroes to Beauty Heroes). Such a great subscription though. Perhaps my favorite niche-luxury green beauty items.

I would have loved to get this box, too bad it is too late 🙁 If anyone is interested in swapping their body oil please let me know. Thanks 🙂

Abby

I emailed customer service and they said at the time that there were a few February boxes left. I was able to order one today, yes! 🙂 Send them an email them to see if there are any left over.

Valerie

Thank you Abby for posting this. I just sent them an email so wish me luck 🙂

Jennifer
