Beauty Heroes July 2020 Review feat. Leahlani
You’ll always get a card with a new monthly ritual that includes past and present featured Beauty Heroes items.
The second info card you’ll get has a little more info about the featured brand, Leahlani, as well as details on the two items sent.
Leahlani Meli Glow Illuminating Nectar Mask, 50 mL – Retail Value $52.00
I always enjoy a fancy mask, especially with loads of time at home to indulge. This one has a sweet and fruity scent and it is thick and STICKY. Like, the stickiest mask I have ever applied! That is probably because the #1 ingredient here is raw Hawaiian honey. Honey is full of really great skin ingredients like vitamin B, loads of minerals (potassium, & calcium), and AHAs. AHAs are some of my favorite ingredients because they help to gently exfoliate your face and add brightness. Second after the honey is rose clay, which helps to detoxify and clear out pores. I think the honey+clay combo is really genius because honey tends to lock in moisture while clay can be very drying. Together they work as a team to make sure your face is clear from extra oil and bacteria without totally stripping your moisture barrier. Other goodies inside include loads of fruit extracts, enzymes, hyaluronic acid, and a total of 32 vitamins and minerals. The application here is messy, so be prepared to shower after and consider wearing a top you don’t need to pull over your head! My face looked pretty great after washing this off, and you could totally see more brightness.
Leahlani Mahina Evening Replenishing Elixir, 30 mL – Retail Value $72.00
I love a good night oil and this one is filled with stuff that is especially great for drier skin (like mine!). Boasting chia seed, meadowfoam seed, moringa, marula, and prickly pear seed oils, this bottle is brimming with lipids that help skin feel plump and firm. The oils also have loads of vitamins and antioxidants. The scent here is vanilla, and that comes from 3 different types of vanilla beans, all of which are anti-inflammatory and vitamin-rich. Delightful! Rounding up this dream bottle is the inclusion of Co-Enzyme Q10, which is great if you have anti-aging concerns or want to help prevent or treat sun damage. Oils are usually my last step before bed, but I also like adding them to dry spots under a sheet mask to really give my skin an extra treat. This one absorbs like a dream and leaves behind that soft, sweet vanilla scent. It is an especially luxe treat after using the included nectar mask.
Verdict: This was my first Beauty Heroes box and I am impressed. I really like the Leahlani brand and its focus on natural and topical ingredients. The combo of a mask and oil was a great idea and these two products work beautifully together and create quite a tropical spa sort of evening, especially if you save this ritual for the weekend when you can have a glass of your fave frozen bevvie and work in that oil with a slow facial massage. All in all, this $60 box has a value of $124.00, which is more than double the cost of this month’s subscription.
