Beauty Heroes 5 for 5 Discovery

Listen up, my fine friends!

There comes a time in this relationship we have, you and me, when I must go from “here’s a great deal, you should check it out if you are interested” to “BUY THIS NOW.”

That time has come. *cue trumpet fanfare*

Today, in celebration of their 5th anniversary, Beauty Heroes just announced their 5 for 5 Beauty Discovery. In this box are 5 past “hero” products that not only are personal favorites of founder Jeannie Jarnot, but consistent best sellers from the Beauty Heroes shop. The total value of this package is $256.

What I love most about this discovery is that you could base your entire green beauty skincare routine off these products. The only thing missing is a facial cleanser, but you are totally covered on facial serums, a cream, a mask, and an eye serum. Can you imagine purchasing your entire luxury skincare routine for $58.95? (Or even less if you want to sign up for more than one month?!)

Okay, deep breath, Sarah. Let’s take a good look at these products.



Odds and Ends

1. Please tell me you saw the photos of this little girl’s first day of school – before and after. Classic.

2. 39 of the worst hotel and Airbnb guests ever.

3. David Byrne launches a magazine focusing on reasons to be cheerful. NEEDED.

4. Your townie neighbor providing directions in your rapidly gentrifying neighborhood.

5. It’s Labor Day weekend and the sales are blowing up. Here are my curated picks.

6. I just about sank into the depths when the shampoo/conditioner that saved my daughter’s tangled hair was discontinued until I found a NEW duo that works just as well and is less expensive! #WINNING

7. This sand sculpture makes me so sad.

8. How dare dogs bark in a dog park?! THE AUDACITY.

9. Got this cardigan in Bone and I am chomping at the bit to wear it. (I want the Cider too.) Please drop 40 degrees STAT, Oklahoma.

10. Pinterest adds authoritative vaccine results to its search.

11. Gender-neutral pronouns can change a culture. It’s already happened.

12. Green skincare junkies, please please please keep your eyes on Beauty Heroes this Sunday. The best deal I’ve ever seen in green beauty is about to go down. Have you signed up for my newsletter? I’ll be sending out the details first thing Sunday morning!

Happy Friday! We’re heading to Texas for the long weekend. Hope you enjoy yours!

My Favorite Labor Day Deals!

Hello and happy impending Labor Day weekend! We are heading to Texas for the extended weekend, but far be it for me to not share some of the best Labor Day promotions. I mean, Labor Day is pretty much the Black Friday of late summer DUH. There are tons of deals to be had, but I am going to stick with the lucky number 7 today. Some promotions have already begun and some not quite yet, but I will include dates for you, as well as my top picks from each shop!


AILLEA is one of my favorite online green beauty retailers as well as having brick-and-mortar shops as in Denver, Charleston, Raleigh, and Atlanta. (Oh, how I wish I lived closer to one.)

AILLEA’s Labor Day promotion is from August 29th through September 2nd and shoppers can save 15% store-wide! The promotion is both in-store and online – online shoppers can use code LD2019 for the discount to apply.

(Certain brands are excluded – May Lindstrom, Kypris Beauty, Josh Rosebrook, and Vintner’s Daughter.)
