Beauty Heroes is a healthy beauty discovery service featuring one clean beauty brand each month. They send a full-size Hero product in every box, plus a deluxe size Sidekick. Sometimes, they send more than one Hero or Sidekick, depending on the featured brand. Boxes are always $100+ in total value. Beauty Heroes members also receive a 15% discount in the Beauty Heroes Beauty Store, insider exclusives, and early access to new product launches. They currently offer 1-, 3-, 6-, and 12-month membership subscriptions. Here are the prices: 1-month – $58.95 ($58.95/month), 3-months – $137.85 ($45.95/month), 6-months – $251.70 ($41.95/month), 12-months – $479.40 ($39.95/month).

The items came in a simple white box with the Beauty Heroes branding.

For this month, the featured brand is Joaquina Botánica!

Usually, Beauty Heroes incorporates products from previous months to provide a customized beauty ritual. Your ritual can change monthly with the seasons and with new products – I absolutely love this feature.

The box also includes a mini booklet. Inside, it contains more information about each product.

At the back is a little feature about the brand.

Joaquina Botanica uses recyclable glass containers for their products. As for the individual cartons, they’re made with recyclable paper and vegetable-based ink.

Everything in the Joaquina Botánica Beauty Heroes box!

This month’s Hero product is the Hydrating Glow Oil and the Sidekick is the Hydrating Essence!

Joaquina Botánica Hydrating Essence ($54) This essence is formulated to hydrate and illuminate the skin while also providing anti-aging benefits! It comes in spray bottle which makes application easier.

Ingredients include calendula and rose water flower for a moisture boost, plus plant peptides from Amazonian superfruit Sacha Inchi that helps keep the skin looking youthful. Other ingredients include glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C-rich camu camu. Another thing to love about Joaquina Botanica products is that they’re free from toxins including parabens, PEGs, petroleum, phthalates, silicones, sulfate detergents, synthetic fragrances and dyes, TEA, and urea. This essence is vegan and cruelty-free as well.

It can be used on cleansed skin or after applying makeup to give you a subtle dewy glow. Since it has a calming formula, it can even help soothe the skin after exfoliating!

Joaquina Botánica Hydrating Glow Oil ($88) Now, we’re onto the Hero product, a facial oil that boosts the skin’s hydration! It feels luxurious when applied and I love that it doesn’t leave my skin feeling tacky although it’s oil-based. The formula includes a blend of orchid, cacay, and bakuchiol that promote skin elasticity, plus vitamin C that helps brighten the skin. Other ingredients include camu camu, maracuja, papaya, and sacha inchi.

It can be applied on the face, neck, and decolletage after cleansing. For best results, it’s recommended to be used in the morning and at night. If you want a dewy makeup look, you can also mix a few drops of the oil with your favorite foundation or SPF product!

I love discovering clean beauty brands and products through Beauty Heroes box! This month’s Hero and Sidekick items from Joaquina Botanica are packed with potent botanicals native to Latin America. The essence and the oil can be used in one routine for healthier and well-hydrated skin. They can be used with other products as well, especially if you want a dewy makeup finish. They don’t contain any chemicals either, so they are gentle on the skin. It’s a promising pair of skincare products overall, and I’m satisfied! Whether you’re a clean beauty junkie or you simply want to try new skin-friendly products, this beauty discovery service is worth every penny.
