Josh Rosebrook + Beauty Heroes Review

July 1, 2017 (updated January 31, 2023)

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream

HOLD THE PHONE! So when I first opened up my July Beauty Heroes and saw it was a Josh Rosebrook colab my heart skipped a beat but then when I actually opened it up and saw we are getting his 2 oz Nutrient Day Cream with broad spectrum 30 SPF – I started doing backflips! You guys, believe the hype – this product is all it’s cracked up to be AND MORE! Check out my Josh Rosebrook + Beauty Heroes review below but first a video so you can see what it looks like going on.

Josh Rosebrook

If this is your first time meeting Josh Rosebrook, I am so excited to introduce you. Josh is the godfather of green beauty and has a skin and haircare line that is unparalleled in ingredient formulation, sourcing and performance. What’s unique about Josh is he aims to support skin by targeting the root cause of aging: inflammation. And literally most of his products are pretty much 100% organic and when we are talking hairspray, lotions and cleansers, that is really hard to do.

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Josh last year at Follain Boston. He gave me the secret to clear, bright, glowing skin. You can read all about it here.

The other thing I love about Josh’s line is it’s made for the “everyman” – transcending age, gender and skin type. This is so true. I especially love his new fragrance Ethereal – a long wearing unisex spicy musk. Also his hairspray is the best I’ve found and is on repeat until I die.  I love his Hydrating Accelerator (mist). And two more must haves: Active Enzyme Exfoliator (THE BEST EXFOLIATOR) and his Cacao Antioxidant Mask (SO GOOD). Okay, enough chit chat, let’s get to the hard and fast.

The Hard and Fast

Josh Rosebrook Beauty Heroes box

So this month Beauty Heroes is delivering:

This is a total value of $115 for less and yours for $38.33 – just about. So if you are thinking of first signing on it’s an initial commitment $115 for the first three months and then you can cancel at-will after that. (Not that you’d want to.) The other cool thing is members have a 24/7/365 15% off to EVERYTHING in the Beauty Heroes store – which stocks items that rarely go on sale – a deal you won’t find anywhere else!

Hero: Nutrient Day Cream SPF 30

Josh Rosebrook SPF

Okay seriously you guys. This is IT. If you are looking for a clean moisturizer with SPF that is pretty much 100% organic, offers broad spectrum + moisturizes, WELP – look no further than Josh Rosebrook’s Nutrient Day Cream.

I mean, what’s not to like!? This cream comes out white but rubs in clear. And you know how sometimes most of the time you apply an SPF lotion and your skin just feels – greasy? Heavy? Like you are are carrying around a 25 lb dumbbell on your face? Well the Nutrient Day Cream is just the opposite. It soaks right in and skin feels moisturized but with a matte finish. Plus it smells amazing.

I knew this SPF was a winner the day I wore it and went for a run. My face sweat but it was a regular sweat – not the kind of build up, waterworks sweat you get after applying a typical SPF. You guys know that suffocated SPF sweat I’m talking about. None of that.

I also love that this is great for me AND my hubs. No more walking around with my white-faced boo. (Although not that I want to share either #greenbeautyproblems).

Lastly, could the timing of this delivery be any better?! Perfect for summer!


Josh Rosebrook SPF and Balm

Okay so the performance is stellar but lets talk ingredients! All at once we see a product that promises to firm, calm, brighten, hydrate and protect. How? Well, we see:

  • Antioxidant skin brighteners like: organic bilberry, dandelion, jojoba, green tea and ginseng.
  • Anti-inflammatory soothers with: organic hemp, marshmallow, st. john’s wort and calendula.
  • Holistic hydrators like: organic sesame, shea, broccoli seed and sea buckthorn.
  • And uncoated, non-nano, high micron zinc oxide to protect

Here is the full ingredients list – can you believe how ORGANIC IT IS!?

organic aloe vera leaf juice, organic shea butter, organic evening primrose oil, organic hemp seed oil, organic jojoba oil, organic borage seed oil, organic almond oil, organic grape seed oil, organic sesame oil, organic sea buckthorn oil, organic broccoli oil, organic calendula, organic bilberry, organic chamomile, organic burdock, organic rosemary, organic fennel, organic dandelion, organic rose hips, organic catnip, organic chickweed, organic neem, organic skullcap, organic ginkgo, organic linden flower, organic hawthorn berry, organic green tea, organic flax, organic nettle, organic sage, organic marshmallow root, organic cayenne, organic ginseng, organic peppermint, organic st. john’s wort, organic alfalfa, organic vitamin E, wildcrafted candelilla wax, organic guar gum, organic gum arabic, non-GMO xanthan gum, non-GMO potassium sorbate, organic benzoin resin and organic carrot seed oil

Sidekick: Vital Balm Cream

Josh Rosebrook Vital Balm Cream

If you love creams, you gotta get your hands on Josh Rosebrook’s Vital Balm Cream. It’s so right in every way. The first time I got to try this cream was in Dallas when I was sharing a room with Suzi from Gurl Gone Green. She brought this along and on our first night goes, “You gotta try this!!!” Well, she was right.

This cream delivers. It’s so moisturizing without leaving skin heavy or oily. It’s light in texture like a cream but heavy hitting with intention like a balm. My skin feels so hydrated, plump and happy with it on. Plus it smells amazing like a little bit minty. Also the color is sick – like an icy blue. Which I am guessing is from the blue tansy.

Speaking of ingredients we see:

  • Moisturizing: senna seed, mango seed butter, avocado seed oil, jojoba, shea and aloe vera.
  • Anti-inflammatory: turmeric, blue tansy, ashwaganda and calendula to calm redness and regenerate.

Check out the full ingredient list here. It’s just as good as the Nutrient Day Cream – trust me!

Get On It!

So the last time Beauty Heroes colabed with Josh Rosebrook, they sold out and I’m telling you they will this time too so get on it girl! Beauty Heroes is a no brainer. It’s one of the best subscription services around and is virtually fail proof. The founder Jeannie vets all of her picks thoroughly with a “use less, love more” philosophy. She tries tons of product and only picks the best to send out.  So you are basically guaranteed a winner every time!

I love that two of my besties and my sister subscribe too because it is so fun to discover and chat about each months picks together!

If you are going to pick a month to join Beauty Heroes, this is it! Sign up at the Beauty Heroes website and tell me what you think!
