Even the most dismal day can be brightened by popping up my mailbox and spotting a neatly packaged Beauty Heroes box waiting for me inside. Created by a spa industry veteran, the subscription is the clean beauty's answer to the slow food movement: Non-toxic holy grail products ( or "discoveries" as they call them), are lovingly culled into monthly boxes to be incorporated into your self care routine.
And no duds so far. Lines like LilFox (the honey based mask + scrub pictured above, by the way, is a fantastic morning facial treatment), Osmia, Josh Rosebrook and Mahalo have all been featured in my boxes. All of these lines have long been darlings of other clean beauty bloggers, and my Instagram feed is often dotted with unabashed adoration for these lines. But their products are pricey, and my skin is fussy. So it's lovely getting their one-size-fits-all greatest hits sent my way and dodging have to pay the full retail value, at roughly $38 a box.
