June 2020 Beauty Heroes Box by Lilfox
**I am an affiliate with BH and received this box from them about a month ago to use before sharing my opinions. Affiliate links are used in this article.
The Beauty Heroes Box is a skincare box that is specially curated every month to have a Hero product and a Sidekick. Both are important, but the Hero is always full-size.
The June 2020 Hero product is Lilfox's Haute C, and the sidekick is their Dewy Beam Dream. The value of the box is $235, and a BH membership is anywhere from $37.96-$58.95 a month. If you become a member, you also get 15% off of all Beauty Heroes store purchases.
About the products:
The Hero: Haute C Retail Price $125
Haute C is a day or nighttime serum concentrate. I have been using this daily as part of my regular cleanse, tone, SERUM, moisturize, and SPF routine. It has a blend of Kakadu plum, camu camu, 15% tetra-C, Vitamin E, and ferulic acid. "Tetra-C is the only form of Vitamin C that has been proven to penetrate the epidermis and dermis to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and increases collagen in clinical trials." (from BH's website) I love Vitamin C in the morning to boost my skin's resiliency to the sun, also the Vitamin E and ferulic acid help with this.
Scent Profile: fresh (ocean) and citrus (lemon) This smell reminds me of my grandma's lemon meringue pie.
Haute C Ingredients: Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe) Juice*, Tetrahexyldecyl (tetra-C) Ascorbate, Citrus Aurantium (Bitter Orange) Amara Water, Niacinamide, Propanediol, Glycerin, Cetearyl Glucoside, Glyceryl Stearate, Sodium (Hyaluronic Acid) Hyaluronate, Terminalia Ferdinandiana (Kakadu) Fruit Extract, Myrciara Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Extract, Ferulic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil Extract*, Citrus Aurantifolia (Key Lime) Oil*, Citrus Bergamia (Bergamot) Oil*, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil*, Mentha Piperata (Peppermint) Oil*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Extract, Tocopherol, Xanthum Gum, Lecithin, Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Oil, Citric Acid
The Sidekick: Dewy Beam Dream Retail Price $110
The Dewy Beam Dream is a jelly nighttime mask. I use it by washing my face first and then using a toner, I let my toner dry and apply one pump of this from my hairline to my décolleté. That's it. It is thick enough that I don't feel like I need to add any moisturizer, especially in the hot summer nights. This is supposed to be an alternative to retinol. I am alternating this every night with retinol (the Mychelle one.) I don't feel like it penetrates and rejuvenates as retinol does for long-term results. Still, I get soft and smooth instant gratification from the niacinamide, lactic, and glycolic acids in this product.
Scent Profile: Fresh (ocean-like) and Earthy (forest-like)
Dewy Beam Dream Ingredients: Aloe Barbadenis (Aloe) Leaf Juice*, Propenediol, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Polyglycerol-6 Caprylate, Polyglyceryl-3 Cocoate, Polyglycerol-4 Caprate, Polyglycerol-6 Ricinoleate, Panthenol, Hydroxyethycellulose, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Vigna Acontifolia Seed (Dew Bean) Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit (Acai) Extract*, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Opuntia-Fica Indica (Barbary Fig) Stem Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris (Bamboo) Extract, Centella Asiatica (Indian Pennywort) Extract, Passiflora Incarnata (Passionflower) Fruit Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Victoria Amazonica (Water Lily) Flower Extract, Benzyl Alcohol, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Extract, Tocopherol, Citrus Aurauntium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower + Leaf/Twig Oil*, Viola Oderata Leaf (Violet) Absolute, Citrus Paradisi Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Peel Oil*, Citric Acid *Certified Organic
I love that both products have an aloe base. Aloe is so dreamy!
This box is worth it! I have normal/combo skin that has been sensitized in the past, not currently. I wouldn't recommend this if you do have sensitive skin, oily and dry would do great with this duo. These skin types could benefit from the light exfoliating properties in the Dewy Bean Dream and rejuvenating properties of the Haute C!
