Beauty Heroes is a natural beauty subscription box that focuses on quality ingredients. Each month they send you one new full size “hero” product in the face, body, hair or sun care category.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

The Subscription Box: Beauty Heroes

The Cost: $115 for 3 months

The Products: Each month, you’ll receive a full-size face, body, hair or sun care Hero Product. (Free of harmful “villain” ingredients).

Ships to: US, Canada and Worldwide! (Additional shipping: Canada – $11.95, All Other Countries $18.95)

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!

Max and Me Circle of Protection – Value $75

This body oil is made with a blend of oils (argan, marula, rosehip) and other natural and organic ingredients. I love the natural essential oil blend scent, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easily this oil absorbed into my skin. It’s lovely!

Circle of Protection Mini – 10 ml Value $7.50

Since the full-size version is over the 3 oz travel limit, I appreciate this little 10 ml version, too!

Max and Me Enchanted Facial Oil – 10 ml Value $40

This is a high-value little sample! (The full-size version is $120 for 30 ml.) But it is also supposed to be the same size as the Circle of Protection Mini, and the container is way smaller. So either this isn’t actually 10 ml, or the Circle of Protection Mini is 60% air.

UPDATE: this sample is mislabeled and actually 2 ml (Value $5).

Either way, it’s nice to sample this indulgent facial oil. It is SO lightweight, smells incredible, and I’m determined to make this little vial last for as long as possible!

Verdict: This month’s Beauty Heroes box has a value of about $87.50. I think that’s a good value for the cost, and I appreciate that Beauty Heroes sends top-quality natural and organic brands. This box is about quality over quantity, and I love being able to sample a full-size luxe beauty product each month! (Both these items were hits for me, too!)

What do you think of the May 2017 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 think it’s a misprint. The beautyhero fold out says 2mL for the face oil with a worth of $5. I think they’re considering the mini circle of protection oil to be the sidekick. Definitely less exciting a sidekick when compared to previous months. Would have really appreciated more of the face oil, since this isn’t enough to even decide if I’d want to buy it in the future.

Liz Cadman

Oh, thank you for letting me know. Sorry I missed that on the fold out! I’ll update the post.

The face oil sample is about the size of one of those little perfumes, the kind that comes on a card. Sooo I don’t feel it’s really a sidekick product. Smells awesome and feels good, but I dunno. …
I noticed that the mention of the sidekick is no longer part of the box description and Im afraid this may be a way of phasing it out. This box was an indulgence for me with two products. I won’t be able to justify it with one. I think I may finally have to take the plunge and just start making my own. That having been said, their products are always great and customer service is awesome. The face oil sample was missing and I got a super quick personal email right away, followed by a tracking number and expedited replacement. It really is a great company.

HI Clover – we are not at all phasing out the Sidekick part of our Beauty Discoveries. In fact, next month’s Sidekick is a full size product. This month we wanted to offer you the opportunity to have a small Circle of Protection for travel or to share with a friend or family member. And then we also included the Enchanted Face Oil as an extra treat. Our monthly discoveries are always a minimum value of $90 – and often over $100 – more than double the value of each discovery. We hope to continue discovering healthy beauty with you! Hero On!

I’m canceling this box and sticking with Boxwalla, it’s every 2 months and you don’t have to sign up for 3 shipments. The Boxwalla boxes have been amazing.

Beauty Heroes®

Hi Kate,

We are sorry to see you go. We hope you enjoy Boxwalla and we hope to welcome you back on day to Beauty Heroes! Please send us any comments or questions at any time to [email protected]

Thanks for discovering healthy beauty with us, Hero On!

I’m so on the edge with this box. I really want to try them but I don’t know if I can justify the price!
