This November, I had the pleasure of using the most beautiful skincare products from Ayuna. Originating from Spain, co-founders Isabel and Begoña have combined their genius knowledge by creating this wonderfully unique skincare line. Thier approach is refreshing and unlike any other skincare line, I have previously used. 

Joining Beauty Heroes has given me so many amazing products to nourish my skin, keeping it on the right track as I get older. To give a little refresher, Beauty Heroes was started by Jeannie Jarnot who is an expert in organic and healthy beauty. By subscribing with Beauty Heroes, you are getting a monthly beauty box supplied with the best clean beauty brands on the market. In each box, you will receive two FULL-SIZE products (some months provide a side-kick product as a little surprise bonus). The products typically range from skincare to haircare products, however, every three months, Beauty Heroes offers a makeup box that is optional for members or non-members. Opposed to some beauty boxes, where you get along the lines of 7-10 sample (sample being the keyword)products, Beauty Heroes give you the full-size allowing you to fully experience the products selected for that month. Rest assured, you are getting products selected by a staff that has standards with the utmost integrity. What could be better than that? I couldn't be more thrilled that Beauty Heroes exists and that I get to be a part of this wonderful healthy beauty lifestyle. 


AYUNA-LESS IS BEAUTY

The Concept

WELL•AGING YOUR SKIN

"Anti-aging implies an intrinsic war against aging. AYUNA • Less Is Beauty dares to disrupt this mindset and replaces it with WELL•AGING, a modern and integrated approach to beauty which embraces a lifestyle that promotes aging gracefully.  The result is a visible improvement in skin texture, wrinkles, redness, elasticity & dark spots."

This month with Beauty Heroes, I was able to try out three of Ayuna's products:

  • essence

High Protein Cream-in-Oil Peel- "An incredibly lavish cream texture that works in three phases: First as a proteic exfoliant, based in Alpha-amino acids (Aspartic and Glutamic acids), that releases potent renewing benefits when it comes in contact with the skin. Next, a gentle, grain-free gommage quickly and effectively polishes and rejuvenates the skin’s appearance. Lastly, the formula transforms into an oleo-essence finish that leaves the skin remarkably soft to the touch. The skin’s surface is refined, providing a visibly brighter, more even complexion."

  • cream

Natural Rejuvenating Treatment- "The emulsion has excellent sensorial properties. The formula targets a range of skin and expands the benefits obtained from botanical ingredients by incorporating the science of Phyto-peptides and Plasmas Rich in Botanical Cell Factors, including those of Green Carrot, Arabian Cotton, and Pomegranate. Phyto-peptidic Fractions from Turmeric Root and Centella, known as the longevity plant, help the skin to maintain it’s regenerative abilities. This integral rejuvenating treatment melts into the skin, leaving in its wake a soft evanescent film."

 

  • soap

Nourishing Artisan Soap-  "Obtained from Borage, Olive, and Coconut oil, this artisanal bar provides an extra soft, creamy cleanse that is ideal for all skin types. The formula is enriched with botanical Activated Carbon to provide the skin with a deep detox: it absorbs (attracts and clings to) impurities, excess sebum and toxins. The skin feels soft, clean, and revitalized and looks radiant."


MY THOUGHTS ON AYUNA:

Applying the essence cream was such a unique experience. It acts as a gommage (European for exfoliator). I applied to a dry face, wait 10-15 minutes and then roll off the product with my fingers. Unlike most mask/exfoliators, this one leaves your skin really hydrated and over time, I noticed a more even color on my skin and saw some damage from past blemishes actually repairing. I used the Essence once a week. As far as the rejuvenating cream goes, I was so pleased with this product as the weather in San Diego has been up and down this past month with some really dry days leaving my skin thirsty. Upon application, the cream absorbed so nicely and did not leave a heavy feeling on my skin but almost gave my skin a replenished barrier. Lastly, the soap; this bite sized soap packed a punch. Again, it did not dry out my skin at all and left it feeling so clean. I really feel like the soap helped to draw out dirt and oil from the environment and makeup worn.

Overall...I have become infatuated with Ayuna and their "less is beauty" approach to skincare. I would recommend this product for all skin types and all ages as it is Non-GMO, 100% natural and organic.
