Beauty Heroes Subscription Box- My impressions

Beauty subscription boxes. I have no idea how many there are out there (a lot), but they have always hovered on the peripheries of my interest/shopping list.

Let me start by take a quick detour and making a confession – I’ve grown to hate samples. I find them hugely wasteful and not really that helpful when it comes to my skincare journey. Of course, if it’s a product that’s already sitting on my wishlist and I have a chance to try it out, then I’m all over it. But random stuff, like the Jouer tinted moisturers that Cult Beauty are always giving away in utterly useless colours? No thanks.

Coming back to beauty boxes – this is inherently why they have never interested me. I don’t particularly want to fork out X amount of money on a box of things I don’t particularly want and am not going to get much benefit from due to the small product sizes.

Not in any way an oil based cleanser, something like this would never usually peak my interest, but such is the wide spread love for this product I needed to give it a go.

Herbivore Botanicals: Blue Tansy and Brighten Masks

There’s something about packaging that just gets you, isn’t there? It was 100% the packaging that drew my attention to Herbivore Botanicals when I first saw the Blue Tansy mask pop up on The Beauty Bloss’ instagram feed. It’s clean and minimalist, at the same time looking high-end and luxurious.

I started to see the Blue Tansy BHA appear in more and more places with rave reviews, and after a while I decided it deserved a place in my stash. Along with this mask, I picked up the Winter Glow Kit ( I think this was limited addition), which featured the Brighten mask, Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water, Orchid facial oil roller and the Coco Rose lip polish and conditioner.

I’m going to talk to you specifically about the masks (the Rose water is lovely though).
