I’ve been branching out into more complex and expensive subscription boxes. This is my second month receiving Beauty Heroes. The December Beauty Heroes Box features brand KHUS+KHUS. One of the things I love about subscription boxes is discovering a new brand you would have never heard of or tried if not for the box. This is one of those brands. Details of KHUS+KHUS per Beauty Heroes:

The Bleu Body Wax is not something I would have ever bought on my own. It’s funny I’ll spend all this money on my facial skincare but I refuse to spend a ton on my body products. A body wax is not my usual splurge area. This body wax is divine. This turns from a hard texture to an oil when you warm it up. Scoop a touch out, warm it between your palms then rub in for an oil balm blue tansy bliss. I quite enjoyed using this. You don’t need much to cover your body. It’s very hydrating, and yes you’re going to be coated in oils for a bit until it fully sinks in. So plan wisely and don’t crawl into your sheets minutes after applying. I loved it and I’m glad I have this so I can play with it all winter.
