Beauty Heroes May 2019 Review feat. Ayuna
You’ll receive a booklet that introduces the featured brand (Ayuna) and the products they chose to highlight.
Inside there’s more info on the two products.
On the back, there’s a little more about the brand and more about Beauty Heroes’ loyalty program.
Ayuna Velo 6-in-1 Suprastratum Protection, 1.6 oz. – Retail Value $156.00
Here we have the hero of the month: Velo (“veil” in Spanish). It’s hard to put a label on this product since it seems like it’s doing a lot of different things. Although they don’t call it a BB or CC cream, that’s probably the closest thing it comes to and easiest to understand what you do with it.
After cleansing and using The Facial (more about that a little later), this lightly tinted cream should be smoothed onto the face for a soft even tone. For oily skin, they say this can be used right after cleansing, but if you have very dry skin, it’s best to use a moisturizer first and then Velo. I’m a little on the oily side so this works for me in lieu of my beloved (and now discontinued) Dr. Jart Dis-A-Pore.
This not only delivers mineral UV protection, but also includes vitamin E, argan oil, olive oil, postbiotics, and marshmallow which all work together to bring moisture, repair damage, and plump the skin. The scent of this cream is unlike anything I’ve ever smelled. It’s fruity, yet vinegar-ey and I quickly became obsessed with it.
The cream itself is super thin but has the slight tint you can see above that gives a delicate helping hand to even out skin tone. After applying, I am quite literally glowing even though it ends with a nice matte appearance. This truly does seem to elevate my skin in a very new and wonderful way.
Ayuna The Facial (Low), 6.8 oz. – Retail Value $96.00
Now for the accompanying “sidekick” product: The Facial. There are two variants (high and low) which have different pH strengths. They only sent out the low version which has a pH range of 4.2 – 4.5. I’ll be honest- I have no idea what that means, but please enlighten me in the comments below if you can tell me!
Like Velo, The Facial is unlike any product I have ever used and is hard to fit into a category. It’s used like a toner, as in: after cleansing, but has a lot more going on. This product is water-based, oil-free, and includes a prebiotic (apple cider vinegar), probiotic (Lactobacillus Ferment), along with a slew of other ingredients like raspberry extract, coconut extract, and others.
You have to shake the bottle up to mix everything before squirting the thin milky product out onto a cotton pad. You then take the soaked pad and wipe it across your face and neck. The vinegar smell hit me immediately which was shocking at first, but then you get the sweetness of what I assume to be the essential oil ingredients gurjum balsam, holy wood, myrrh, chamomile, rosemary, and buchu. Like Velo, I quickly became very obsessed with the scent. The formula left my skin feeling very bright and clean and set me up with a great base to add the Velo cream.
Verdict: Beauty Heroes has blown my mind once again with two products that are super unique and super new to me. I now know the wondrous sweet yet tart smell of their products and can’t wait to use them until they run out (especially since I need to replace my BB cream!). Using them together really made my skin feel revived and glowing, so whatever post/pre/probiotics are going on in here are working! As usual- their featured brand is dripping with luxury and makes me feel like a million bucks, only the cost of this box was $42.95 compared to the $252.00 retail value.
