November 24, 2017

Kari Gran Beauty Heroes Box

Sharing is caring!

And so the shopping season has officially begun! CHEERS GUYS! If you missed my Black Friday Sales roundup post make sure you check it out – and happy shopping ya’ll! I’m on vacation in New Hampshire this week with my family celebrating Thanksgiving so I don’t have my usual time to blog, but I wanted to chat quick about the Beauty Heroes Holiday Discovery featuring Kari Gran. Why? Because it’s so good. The Holiday Discovery is an additional box that is open to members and non-members. It features a full size Kari Gran Essential Balm ($95) and your choice of a Tinted Lip Whip ($21) – a total value of $116 and yours for $55! Now let me dish.

Kari Gran Essential Balm

The Essential Balm is a bran new product for Kari Gran. The Kari Gran line is super simple (yet uber sophisticated) and therefore has been dubbed as “The Little Black Dress” of clean beauty using minimal, clean, effective ingredients. This balm is it’s newest addition and is part face balm, part eye cream, part primer and made with some powerhouse ingredients like avocado, rosehip, calendula and jasmine. It’s basically the Kari Gran Essential Serum but with a higher percentage of sea buckthorn oil and a bit of organic beeswax.

It’s a deep yellow color, smells amazing and is super rich in texture. It goes on so creamy and soaks right in. And it leaves my skin feeling so soft and plump. I have been loving this as a night treatment and full disclosure, I’ve been using it as a hand cream too. It’s like too good not to! Check out the full list of ingredients:

HELLO! I’ve been loving this balm so much I added it to my Holiday Gift Guide [for her] – Make sure you check it out!

Kari Gran Lip Whip

AND! I was so excited to build out my Lip Whip collection. Lip Whips are super conditioning. Think like a Vaseline consistency but sans all the nasties and add hydrating oils, butters and a touch of mint. These colors go on pretty sheer and are complimentary to most skin tones. They have a glossy finish and are just really pretty. With this box, you get to choose the color you want out of three colors.

From left to right: Jeannie, Jolene, Suji
  • JOLENE – A sheer pretty pink berry color.
  • SUJI RED – A little more concentrated in pigment, an intriguing holiday red. Festive without being too bold.
  • JEANNINE – A pretty sheer plum that works well with both cool or warm skin tones.

I have to say my personal fave out of these three is Jolene. It’s such a fresh, pretty berry pink and its great for day or night. PS, my nieces just asked me for Lip Whip refills this year – I’m telling you, this lip treatment is SO GOOD!

Thoughtful Packaging

I also wanted to point out two other cool things about Kari Gran. Everything is packaged in dark Miron glass pots or bottles. These pots are great for two reasons. First, it keeps the light out and helps to preserve the integrity of the ingredients. Second it’s made of glass so the packaging won’t leach into the formula, keeping it pure and delivered as intended. Oh, and each pot is hand labeled with an expiration date. How much do you love that!?
