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).

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.

Siam SEAS Yen Heal and Hydrate Toner – Retail Value $90

I’ve sampled the Siam SEAS brand before thanks to Boxwalla, and it is a great natural beauty line, but sadly, I have issues with this toner. Well, one big issue: the spray nozzle! Even holding this at arm’s length away from my face, it’s still like getting in a water gun fight!

This makes the misting part of the toner unusable for me, but I did apply some to a cotton round to try out the formula. It’s gentle and light on my skin and has a natural, earthy scent.

I should mention that there is a note on the info card about the spray:

Please note that due to the density of the formula of Yen, settling may occur. We recommend shaking your bottle before each application. If Yen starts to spray in a stream, apply product to the palm of your hands and gently press into skin.

I followed the shaking instructions, and still had issues. I think it’s with the mister nozzle itself and not the formula.

Siam SEAS Morning Delight All-in-One Morning Cleanser – 20 ml Value Given $15

This oil-based cleanser also works to remove makeup. Like the mist, it has a natural, earthy scent that may not be for everyone, but I don’t mind it. The cleanser was gentle and left my skin moisturized, too.

Verdict: This month’s Beauty Heroes box has a value of about $105. I think that’s a great value for the $38.33 cost, but I’m disappointed in the hero item this month. If a toner mist retails for $90, I expect it to deliver a fine, even, and refreshing spray!

This month’s issue aside, I appreciate that Beauty Heroes sends top-quality natural and organic brands. This box is about quality over quantity, and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a natural beauty box.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes. Sign up by March 20th to start your subscription with the March box.

Coupon – No coupons available.

What do you think of the March 2018 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.

Is anyone interested in swapping this box for another? I’m not so interested in this one but one of the newer ones I would be interested in!

as shown on beauty heroes website, you’re to spray in your hands and press into skin – not spray directly on face. it’s a pain b/c spray would be better, but don’t knock it b/c you can’t spray as it is to be used with your hands

My box arrived and has the same problem. It’s disappointing as I wanted a toner with a misting spray like the Amly silver face mist. They are the same bottle and nozzle. I opened the Siam and crystals had formed all over the spray nozzle and top. While I really love the Siam toner, I would never pay $90 for one when the nozzle doesn’t work correctly. It’s using 3x as much product having to either put it in my hands and press or use a cotton ball. Very sad because I really like it

Liz Cadman

Sorry for any confusion – I was disappointed because the directions for use on the actual bottle imply that you can mist it directly on to your face.

You would think that putting oily hands all over your face would be a bad idea. Sprayer would be my preference.

I have been itching to try a natural beauty box and the first one that has a great month I will pull the trigger. Unfortunately, this month is an easy pass for me. It’s too bad, I was rooting for Beauty Heroes. I discovered Honua Aloha Youth Serum through them when they offered previous boxes as a stand-alone purchase last year. I have come to love AYS and looking forward to transition to more natural skincare products.

My spray works like yours. It was an unpleasant surprise the first time I tried it! Other than that though I really like the product.

Luna

I think every reviewer I’ve seen of this box has had problems with using the mister directly on their face since the formula is thicker (I believe the toner is aloe based). Everyone has been spritzing the toner in their hands, then pressing it into their skin instead.

Thanks for heads up on the spray. Maybe I can decant the toner into a different bottle when I’m ready to use it.

Redhed36

They have those facial misters. The one I have sprays a light mist. Not sure how thick formula is, but it might work.

DL

I agree on the awful mist nozzle! I have some that are not as fine as I prefer, but I’ve never received a product to mist that fails so miserably. It may be partly the heavier formula, but either way they should have made it where it could spray a finer mist, or instead opted for a pump or even screw top.

Luna

Hi Liz,
It looks like your review of the morning cleanser got cut off. 🙂

Liz Cadman

ooo thank you for catching that!
