I joined Beauty Heroes last November when the first Ayuna subscription box came out. I’ve been smitten with the brand ever since. I’m so excited about the August box it’s insane. This month contains a full size Cream Rejuvenating Cream Light which has been on my wishlist since last November. Details per Beauty Heroes:
Always on the cutting edge, Ayuna catapults skincare and green beauty to the next level with its Natural Rejuvenating Treatment Cream – Light and new-to-market Body Cream.
Body Cream, this month’s Sidekick, is an extension of the Hero product, and is formulated with prebiotics from noni stem cells that support good bacteria to flourish in the skin’s microbiome, resulting in clearer, smoother skin.
August’s Beauty Discovery is valued at $257. Ayuna has a less is more philosophy. Details from their site:
The best beauty routine is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. We are committed to simplifying beauty – to nourishing the skin with precision by providing only the fundamental and basic ingredients needed to achieve maximum performance.
AYUNA · Less is Beauty reduces skincare to the essential. Through a discrete range of formulas – produced with care, attention and intelligence – we offer the skin “more” with “less”.
The emulsion has excellent sensorial properties. The formula targets a range of skin functions and expands the potential benefits obtained from botanical ingredients by incorporating the science of Phyto-peptides and Plasmas rich in Botanical Cell Factors, including those of Green Carrot, Arabian Cotton and Pomegranate. Phyto-peptidic Fractions from Turmeric Root and Centella, known as the longevity plant, favorably help the skin to maintain its regenerative abilities. This integral rejuvenating treatment melts onto the skin, leaving in its wake a soft evanescent film.

A luxurious, everyday body care experience. This silky, non-toxic cream drenches the skin with a layer of deep hydration that lasts through the day. Enhanced with a Plasma Rich in Cell Factors from Noni and Peptides from Lactic Bacteria, the result is a prebiotic blend that balances the microbiota and visibly improves the skin. The powerful formula is reinforced by a cocktail of nature’s most nutritive lipids: Calendula, known for its soothing and calming properties, and Zea Mays, plus honeycomb and jojoba waxes provide antioxidant and essential fatty acids to the skin.

The Body Cream is a brand new product. The size included in this box is a deluxe 100 ml size, though still a fairly nice size to play with. It’s light and nourishing. Plus it has the coolest pearl packaging for a body cream ever. It has that perfect Ayuna scent. I’m kind of addicted to the scent of Ayuna’s products. It’s light, floral, creamy & sweet all in one. Seriously addictive. I’m kind of afraid to use it as I know I’ll love it but it’s so expensive.
The Cream Rejuvenating Light is one of the most divine face creams I’ve ever used. It has a light texture but is also incredibly nourishing. This uses plant peptides & botanical cell factors to help regenerate the skin. After using this I wake up in the morning with the best looking skin. It’s incredible. This cream uses lemon fruit extract (citric acid) as a gentle exfoliant so you don’t need an acid serum or toner. This cream also has probiotic lactobacillus for skin health & gluconolactone (PHA antioxidant and exfoliant). It’s a well rounded cream. Leaps and bounds better than La Mer. It just moved into my top four favorite night creams of all time.
This lighter version is enough to hydrate my skin at night right now, in the winter I will switch this to days. Ayuna in general believes in less is more. They are a minimal routine brand. Their line has a detox mask, exfoliating mask, soap and two creams-one light & one rich. The richer cream is perfect in the winter for me. This cream retails for $198 but you can get it with the body cream for only $42.95 a month (3 month subscription). You have until August 20th to subscribe and reserve yours (as long as they have enough stock). You can subscribe HERE.
