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

Bottega Organica Illuminate Eye Cream – Value $145

beauty-heroes-october-2016-0010

This eye cream is made with all organic and natural ingredients:

This powerful and effective anti-aging eye cream is formulated to brighten, de-puff and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.  Cucumber and horse chestnut revitalize the eye contour while rosemary enhances skin elasticity. Arnica and coneflower stimulate healthy skin renewal while prawn sage exerts its powerful anti-aging activity. Wild carrots, high in antioxidants and vitamins are vital for skin repair.

It’s described as having a fresh, grassy scent. I didn’t get that scent. Unfortunately, it smelled a little more clinical to me. But that scent disappeared quickly, so it wasn’t an issue. The formula absorbed quickly, and felt gentle on my skin, too. (My undereye area is particularly sensitive, so that’s a big win.)

Bottega Organica Lemon Cleansing Face Oil – Value $12

Unlike the eye cream, this oil smells AMAZING! I love the citrus lemon scent. The first ingredient is lemon peel oil, so the scent is intense and refreshing. To use this oil, you apply a few drops to dry skin, massage, then remove with a damp cloth.

 

Verdict: This month’s Beauty Heroes box has a value of $157. I think that’s great for the cost. And being able to try this pricey eye cream at a deep discount is awesome. When I get tiny samples of skincare products in boxes, I often can’t tell if the formula makes a difference in my skin before the sample is all gone. So, I really appreciate full-size skincare products in subscription boxes!)

And as always, 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 October 2016 Beauty Heroes box?

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 have been subscribing to this for a while now and it’s always among the favorite boxes I receive each month–often the very favorite.

Debbie

I just subscribed and I’m excited!! I am really trying to stay away from harmful ingredients and subscriptions like this make it easier for me to get to know new products and see what’s out there,,,yay 🙂

Janet

I LOVE Beauty Heroes…I think it’s become my favorite subscription box. Yes it’s pricier than other boxes, but the value is always there, and, like you said Liz, it is so much easier to tell if a product actually works when you can try a full size product rather than just a tiny sample. I’d definitely recommend this box to anyone interested in more natural beauty products…it’s well worth the price!

I’m so glad to hear you love it, too! 🙂 It’s such a great subscription for natural beauty lovers!
