June Beauty Heroes featuring Honua Skincare // Aloha Youth Serum | L’Amour et la Musique

I surprised myself with power editing to have this go live today! It was meant to be Sunday’s video. That means I’ll see you guys Sunday too. Honua is the perfect summer skincare brand, so I was really excited to try a brand that was entirely new to me. HAPPY JUNE and happy birthday to all my fellow Geminis! xoxo, mercedes.

    Very different from those other two brands you mention, because she is a Native Hawaiian, working with her land….not someone who transplanted, and uses the Hawaiian language and exoticism, to market products. I could go on….:)

    I recently watched the Jordan Samuels video you mention, and he made some really thought provoking points (to me at least). I think maybe when a brand does have an esthetician involved there is a perceived level of "education" and "knowledge" if you will, behind it. It's an interesting point to consider when a lot of green beauty brands started as home grown ventures. I feel like I've def. swayed between preferring a type of brand – I'd say right now, the brands I'm more interested in are founded by estheticians. Would love your thoughts on the Jordan Samuels Hydrate Serum – almost done with my Previse one and looking for a replacement. Great review of these products by the way! I think it's one of your best and most thorough Beauty Hero reviews : ) … and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    thanks for the review! what other skincare have you been using with these two specifically in the morning from cleansing to before makeup? Does it layer well?

    What a delightful surprise on a Thursday! I am in need of a 'summer' face oil and somewhat considering re-purchasing the Laurel sun damage repair serum, but BH must have read my mind! I was intrigued when it was announced and now I'm much more excited after your review..sounds right up my alley. I think I may repurchase the Laurel in a few months since you said in a recent video it's great for fall as well.

    I find 'rude' comments about the BH boxes a little confusing. I joined after there was a lot of facial oils (my first box was the SkinOwl) and couldn't be happier with the rotation of products. I really like body oil, so the Osmia and Max & Me was still a hit even though they were so close together. I also have the MΕ«n Ayour body serum and one from Red Flower and rotate the last three in the morning. Your tip on the oil+lotion emulsion is a winner..I love it!

    Lastly, happy birthday..hope you are having wonderful evening celebrating!

    Happy birthday! Haven't received this box, but am excited to give it a try, as I am running short on daytime face oils (of preference, that is). I keep updating my Beauty Heroes cart with items… I think right now it has Mahalo Vitality Elixer, which I ran out of long ago and STILL keep comparing everything else to, and the Skin Owl Mangosteen Oil, which I am nearly out of and can't stand to finish for fear of not having it in my life! So I'm excited to hear that the serum this month has turmeric, as my skin reacted well to it in the Vitality Elixer.
    I really have a hard time finding the negative side to a Beauty Heroes subscription, and kind don't get it when I hear negative comments. I mean, what kind of complaint is getting two body care products too close together? And with two months of hair and face products staggered in between them?! I sort of disagree entirely – that's some pretty good diversity if you ask me! I dunno, to me, both body oils are great and long lasting, they both have completely different scent profiles which I find helpful for use in completely different ways, . . . and I got a killer deal for both of them. I'll take it with a smile on my face, and a kudos to Jeannie for selecting them! Now pardon me while I go slather myself with Max and Me Circle of Protection!

    Okay I'm really going crazy with the comments today but I just finished the video! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! June is one of my favorite months as well and Feb is my birthday month (Aquarius). I've already gushed about how grateful I am for your presence so I wont bore you with reiteration but I hope your birthday was absolutely beautiful and that were left feeling treasured and content. πŸŒ€πŸ’™πŸŒ€
    About LINNÉ, they make one of my favorite face oils of all time; it's the only oil I've tried that totally normalizes my skin. Its the balancing face oil! Nothing makes my skin happier. I'm combination and congestion prone for reference.

    Also just finished watching the end of video. I felt the same way about receiving 2 body oils but didn't voice this. I would be curious about what other people think I prefer mostly skincare with only an occasional body product month. Am I alone in this thought?

    I have so much respect for people like Jordan, but I also find this distinction between estheticians and beauty bloggers sort of beside the point. The significant distinction is between medical doctors and everybody else. Perhaps for people with acute skin problems this is more meaningful (I'm in that camp). I'd love to know more about how you think about expertise (scientific and otherwise). It seems like one of the powerful things about giving authority back to doctors is that it takes it away from people who are selling us stuff. I think it's also fascinating that doctors are entering the Youtube space. This is clearly where these kinds of questions about expertise are getting sorted out. Also you are wonderful and happy birthday!

    Love your take on Estheticians. I've been an Esthetician for 23 years and to be honest I work at a very busy destination spa and I've been up close to skin for so many years you truly get to know skin sooooo well. We become very in tuned to skin. How skin responds and what works well to a particular skin. And I don't mean skin type. Skin is so intricate and honestly very unique to each individual. Not to sounds cliche but no two skins are a like.

    I was hoping for a face oil and beauty heroes never lets me down. I JUST finished my Maya chia oil and am working on sample oils to hold me over.
    I've been so drawn to Hawaiin ranges at the moment too so this is such a beautiful surprise. Hopefully that flower will tolerate the extreme Texas heat on my porch lol.
    I personally loved having both body oils. I'm blasting through them and it was nice to have them so close together to compare them side by side. They were both such different scent profiles and gave off totally different energies.
    Oh! And happy birthday!! πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‚ Sending you good vibes.

    You are the best brand ambassador there is! You know that i was debating for over a year if i want to subscribe and then in 2016 saw your video and was excited enough to finally do it. Then some months i am less then excited about a box and then, again, watch your review and get inspired to try whatever Jeannie chosen. You really are excellent at that !!! Happy Birthday!!!!πŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ
