March 2017 Beauty Heroes Review | Innersense

March 14, 2017

So I know I gush over just about every Beauty Heroes box, but spoiler: this may be my favorite one ever. Okay, probably a tie with the Josh Rosebrook box. I mean, its hard to compete with that, right? I was floored to open up the March box and find not two, not three, but FOUR products! On top of that, all four are full-sized…say whaaat?! Featured this month is the Innersense Hydrate Collection, which includes the Hydrating Cream Hairbath…

I know that I’m always curious what other beauty fanatics are drawn to, so I’ll share with you all the list of luxury items currently piquing my interest. Are they necessities? Definitely not. Can a girl dream?…

How I Survive Winter: Lifestyle Edition

February 24, 2017

We’re midway through February, so I figured I should finally post my second installment of how I survive winter. My last one was beauty-centric, which you can catch here, but this time I’m talking house and home must haves. Hopefully this helps you to manage these last brutal days of winter a little better. 1. Cuppa Hot Tea I think I could almost live on tea alone in the winter. It helps to combat my least favorite part of this…

Valentine’s Day Lineup: Green + Eco Makeup

February 14, 2017

Its the day before Valentine’s Day (one of my all-time favorite holidays!), so I thought I’d share my plan for the makeup I’m doing tomorrow. Its a soft and romantic look, with the addition of a flirty bright lip and winged liner. It is perfect for either a casual evening in or a big night out. I love using natural + eco beauty products for any occasion, and so of course this is no exception. Let me know what you…

How I Survive Winter: Beauty Edition

January 26, 2017

The early months of our Midwest winter always tease me, promising that this season will be a magical and beautiful time. I anticipate days of sparkly snow falling softly outside my window, and cozy evenings spent inside cuddled up with blanket, a good book, and loads of hot tea. I have to say that this past Christmas was so much fun, especially getting to experience it with a four year old. But after the holidays are over you suddenly realize…

January 2017 Beauty Heroes Review | Maya Chia

The January Beauty Heroes box selection hearkens from the gorgeous Maya Chia brand. I have heard people rave about this line, but had never tried any of their products previously. I was thrilled to get the chance with this month’s box. If you haven’t heard of Beauty Heroes, it is a luxury green beauty box which features one full-sized ‘hero’ product, and a (usually sample-sized) ‘sidekick’ product each month. You can check it out here. The full-sized hero product this…

December 2016 Beauty Heroes Review | MŪN

December 12, 2016

When I first opened this box, I can’t say I was over the “MŪN” (sorry, I couldn’t resist) to discover a cleanser. I have always much preferred serums, oils, creams, balms, and masks, aka: treatment-type products. But being featured by Beauty Heroes, I knew there had to be something special about the MŪN Akwi Cleanser. The sidekick included in this box is the Ikeuchi Organic Cleansing Towel, which is woven from 100% organic cotton using low impact dyes. The result is…

WCW Project with Krizzia

December 5, 2016

I have had the pleasure of getting to know the lovely Krizzia, a Filipina lifestyle blogger from Alberta, this past fall. Her blog is full of enticing fashion and beauty advice, as well as food and travel recommendations. She has visited so many places around the globe, and I find myself scrolling endlessly though all the pictures of her adventures. Krizzia recently launched the WCW project to share the stories of a variety of women. I am excited to announce…

November 18, 2016

My month was made when I received my FIRST ever Beauty Heroes box! I signed up for the 3 month subscription a few weeks ago, and have been enjoying every ounce of the experience so far. If you haven’t heard of Beauty Heroes, it is a luxury beauty subscription box specializing in luxury nontoxic beauty products. Each month one green beauty brand is chosen in order to feature their (full-sized) “hero” product, along with their (deluxe sample-sized) “sidekicks.” If you…
