I finally caved and decided to subscribe to the Beauty Heroes Subscription Box. I was staying away from subscription boxes for a while because many years ago I subscribed to them all and just ended up with so much extra stuff that I didn’t use. Beauty Heroes has looked interesting as a green beauty subscription box so I’m trying a 3 month subscription which is $115 or $38.33/month. Their Mission–Beauty Heroes is your destination for healthy beauty. Shop our curated online Beauty Store or join our monthly discovery service and receive one full-size, healthy and high-performance Hero Product, plus deluxe Sidekicks, from clean beauty brands you love. So expect to get one full size item and a mini or two.
The November box peaked my interest and is what made me decide to try it. This month features AYUNA and the box is valued at $205. Not bad for $38.33. Check the box out HERE.
The full size item is AYUNA Essence Cream-In-Oil Peel. Details per Beauty Heroes:
Essence High Protien Cream-in-Oil Peel by Ayuna does its job in three beautiful phases. First, it gives the skin a luxuriously smooth feel, while an abundance of protein bestows a restorative look. Second, it gives skin a revitalized and glowing appearance. Finally, the luscious feeling formula offers an oleo-essence finish, leaving skin feeling irresistibly silky soft.
Directions Use this product one to two times a week. First, apply an even, thick layer to the face, neck, and chest. Leave for several minutes, and then roll product away with hands, rinse, and dry.

One sidekick is a mini AYUNA Rejuvenating Cream II-Rich. Details per Beauty Heroes:
Ayuna’s Natural Rejuvenating Treatment Cream II – Rich is a scientifically advanced, botanical formula that boasts an array of high-performance natural ingredients. Phyto-peptides and plasmas, rich in botanical cell factors from green carrot, arabian cotton, pomegranate and phyto-peptidic fractions from turmeric root and centella, help skin maintain a feeling of regeneration. While rich in nutrients, its light application makes skin feel soft and moisturized, while leaving behind a supple, revitalized appearance.

The other sidekick is a Nourishing Artisan Soap mini. Details per Beauty Heroes:
Ayuna’s Nourishing Artisan Soap is an upgrade on the traditional cleansing bar. Crafted with borage, olive, and coconut oil, this luxurious face soap leaves all skin types feeling lavishly softened and purified. Botanical activated carbon cleanses the skin of impurities, excess sebum, and environmental pollutants, giving skin a beautifully deep detoxified appearance. Skin is left feeling clean and soft, with a radiant look.

The soap is cute for pictures and valued at $5. I’m sure it’s a great bar soap but I never use bar soap so I’ll keep it for pictures. The Cream Rich mini is 0.5 oz in size and valued at $55. That stunned me as it’s such a small pot though a full size jar is $198 for 1.6 oz. It’s a hydrating cream without being too heavy. It has a really nice texture. It has a faint floral scent-nothing too overpowering. It hydrates so well with no heavy or greasy feel. It feels really nice on the skin. No breakouts or any adverse reactions noted. I really want to try the Cream Light now. This is one of those creams that ranks up there with La Mer for luxury price. This is a green beauty and luxury brand for sure. This is not going to be for every pocket book.
Check out the Story of AYUNA HERE.
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 simplify 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”.
I love the packaging of AYUNA. It comes in an off white rounded jar with a simple logo and the cardboard outer packaging is nice as well. The Essence Cream-In-Oil-Peel is divine. It has a whipped texture with a light cream scent. Nothing to irritate anyone there. There’s this slight dry or granular feel to the texture of the mask. You apply a thick layer, let it sit for twenty minutes or so than rub off with your hands. So you end up buffing a tab when you rub it off but nothing abrasive by any means. When you buff or rub it off this turns into this creamy, dry, matte texture that pills or rolls off the face. It’s messy so do this over the sink. Splash your face with some water to rinse and all done. You’re left with a glowing, hydrated, soft and renewed complexion. It was really quite good. It leaves behind a slight bit of oils which makes this hydrating as well.
I never would have thought to try this brand or this product without this subscription box as a full size jar is $145 for 2.7 oz. I’m so glad I decided to subscribe to this box and I’ll be extra sad when I use this all up. I think I found a new green luxury brand obsession.
