Spa Heroes Review & Unboxing @SpaHeroes

I have been on a HUNT for skincare that was truly natural, chemical free and would help my crazy skin conditions I’ve been experiencing over the past few months. And what do I happen to stumble upon? Spa Heroes! A subscription box that is tailored directly to just that!

OVERVIEW: Spa Heroes is a subscription box that brings you premium products at half the cost. What’s different about them in relation to other beauty boxes is that they take this beauty thing one step further! All of their products include in their box are organic, natural, toxin and chemical free. They pride themselves on being way more than just “paraben” free which I can appreciate and respect. It is really safe, healthy skin care which is truly best for your skin. (even though it may be a little costly at times). At 39.00 a month (one of the costlier boxes I’ve reviewed) they send you products worth that equivalent… or usually much more (sometimes double the value!)

Each month you receive a full size premium “hero” that will help save your skin, a few sample products usually from the same line, a pocket guide (which was super cute), and a pamphlet filled with details on what this product is going to do for you. I loved the pocket guide. It details different ingredients that are found in most beauty products and why they can possibly be detrimental. Its great to have as you go shopping so you can take a look at the ingredients and know exactly what it is you are putting on your skin and what harm it can cause you.


The March Spa Heroes Box consisted of the Extra Nourishing Face Formula (Vanilla) from Bottega Organica. The retail value for this bad boy is $78.00 (Wheeew) So you definitely get what you pay for and more by subscribing to this box! I used this moisturizing oil made of only natural organic ingredients nightly for about 4 weeks… and I must say as much as I did not want to like it (because of the price point) I fell in love with it! My skin fell in absolute love with this product! (I’ve included before and after pictures below)… it just makes me so so so sad that it is 78 bucks for less than 2oz of product!

FINAL THOUGHTS: I give this box 4/5. I really love this subscription box and what they are all about! Especially because I am trying desperately to move away from products with ingredients that I can not pronounce. I also really love the products that they send out (which you can also buy on their website) My only draw back is the price point of the products and the subscription! Because they are sending out such amazing products I may just have to bite the bullet and pony up the dough because my skin is just so happy! (or I may just have to save up or…. or get someone else to save up their pennies and fund my Bottega Organica infatuation)
