How is it Thursday? How is it mid-July? How am I 35? For being known as the time of year during which everyone slows down, this summer sure is flying by. I’m really excited to tell you about this month’s Beauty Heroes Box. It’s one of my favorites so far this year. I promise you will you begin using both products immediately, and you probably won’t stop until you’ve reached the bottom of each jar.
July’s Beauty Hero is Josh Rosebrook’s Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30, which I’ve written about countless times (most recently in my 2017 Sunscreen Stars post); it is a true cult favorite. This is a totally natural, broad spectrum SPF that thinks it’s a day cream and acts like a lotion. Active herbal extracts, plant-based oils and non-nano zinc oxide treat, moisturize and protect skin without ever leaving it feeling greasy or sticky – the finish is actually matte, and not at all “white”, which is nearly impossible for a natural SPF cream. And, this sunscreen is perfect for virtually everyone (although the shea butter did not get along with my skin back when it was super-acne-prone, I’ve been able to use it without any problem for a couple of years). Makeup slides right on over this formula, making it perfect for both daily use and a long day in the sun (just be sure to reapply every couple of hours when you’re out there). There is also a tinted version, which I love.
This month’s sidekick is Josh Rosebrook’s newest innovation, The Vital Balm. In a word, it is dreamy; it’s like nothing I’ve ever tried, actually. And, if you have dull, dry skin, this stuff was made for YOU. You see a difference both immediately and even hours later. This super-powered hydrator glides on like a silky whipped balm, but absorbs quickly like a featherweight lotion leaving skin soft, glow-y and luminous, but not oily or greasy. India Senna Seed, known as “botanical Hyaluronic Acid” restores the skin’s ability to hold moisture while aloe vera, rich plant butters and a myriad of herbs deliver regenerative effects. And, the Blue Tansy essential oil lends the beautiful blue hue and intoxicating aroma (I LOVE blue tansy).
This month’s Beauty Heroes Box is available through July 20th – if it doesn’t sell out before then. But, I am sure it will; the products with an established cult following always do. Plus, this month’s box would normally retail for $115, but of course Beauty Heroes members get it for less than $40. You can sign up for this month’s box here, and Beauty Heroes members get 15% off everything in the Beauty Heroes Shop, every day.
