Beauty Heroes May 2021 Review feat. Blissoma

 

Beauty Heroes included a handy info booklet featuring our brand this month: Blissoma. This is a brand dedicated to holistic and nurturing formulas that happen to be perfect for sensitive skin.

 

Photonic Light Shifting Solution SPF25, 1.6 fl oz – Retail Value $52.00

You know I am an SPF addict and while I already have a fave sunscreen, I always love seeing what else is out there. This mineral formula has a lot going for it: niacinamide, aloe, tea antioxidants, cica, argan, and sesame seed oil. I actually expected it to be a little more moisturizing than it was but I am super dry, and I always want more moisture! The nude-colored cream was completely colorless on my skin and I would imagine it might work for most any tone as the color comes more from a radiance sort of boost than an actual tint, per se. I do wish this had a higher SPF rating, but if you don’t suffer from dry skin and want a nice lower SPF option, this is a good formula to try.

 

Aura Phyto Brightening Serum, 1.3 fl oz- Retail Value $72.00

I wanted to love this stuff too but wasn’t super impressed. The ingredients feature a lot of winners: vitamin C, a ridiculously long list of antioxidant-rich plant extracts, ferments, CoQ10, and gluconolactone (a PHA exfoliator). But to me, this just felt, well, sticky. I normally don’t feel super bothered by stickiness, and I like the ingredients, so I think I will just swap this from a daytime serum to something I try out at night. This serum is geared towards brightening, and I find that vitamin C serums usually take a few months to kick in.

Verdict: Beauty Heroes had value this month for sure, but I don’t think this was my favorite delivery from them. I just need more SPF on my face daily than the SPF25 inside and the serum didn’t capture me as some formulas do. Regardless, for under $60 I tried out $124 worth of products. I passed along the SPF to someone else, and I will try the serum a bit longer. Sometimes with subscription boxes, you find brands you love and brands that might not be right for you. And though this delivery might have been me discovering a brand that isn’t my favorite, I know it has loads of fans out there who were likely more enthralled by this delivery.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

Thanks for the review! This is my only sub left and I love your take on the products. Definitely agree that the spf is too low for summer in the light shifting cream, but I’m really enjoying the serum — it isn’t sticky for me! I use the origins mushroom toner first usually, and follow with the bluh alchemy oil also from beauty heroes, or a thicker night cream depending on my skin.

This is my fave box – getting it, reading the reviews and comments. June box arrived 4 weeks ago and July is on its way to me, I think that’s why no one has commented & this box isn’t getting the comment love it should. If you need reviewers to lighten the box load I’d LOVE to review this one (or any of the green boxes!)

I’ve kept this sub on my radar but after some thought I’ve decided to go with See New instead. I find that the value is just better, from what I’ve seen they send only full-sized products, and of course the sub itself is less expensive. If I could afford it, I’d get this one, too, because it’s lovely.
