Dale's Fifth Week with the Summer Box

General Impressions

I am so impressed with the summer box! If I had only one word to describe the summer box, it would be balanced. My face is balanced: moisturized, but not oily. My face feels smooth and not too tight. I no longer have dry patches anywhere on my face, and my t-zone is no longer oily.

Changes I’ve seen

There is an evenness to my skin and reduced redness. My skin is so much smoother and much more supple. The summer box is dynamic enough for the air-conditioned buildings of summer (e.g., air that dries out the skin) and the hot humid days as well.

Overall thoughts

While this box is perfect for summer, I have found must-haves that I will add to my routines throughout the year, such as Janah’s Strawberry Cocktail Exfoliating Toner, if they become permanent in the range. The summer box has taught me that I have a say in how my skin reacts to the dry air of air conditioned building and the hot humid air of a Jersey shore afternoon. I’m spending more time outside, I’ve increased my workouts, and when I am inside the air is so dry. All of these conditions had lead to congested skin in the past, but not anymore. If I do my I-cant (limited) routine for after the gym (Peppermint Water, Coconut Serum, and Bamboo Dry Shampoo) in the morning, my skin stays balanced and congestion free even though I did not do my full morning routine. Using the summer box, I have new routines for different times of the day, after different activities, for different environments. Products that scared me because my skin is sensitive proved to be some of my favorites: Oatmeal & Rice Cleansing Grains

And Janah’s Strawberry Cocktail Exfoliating Toner. Exfoliating is my new way of life--literally and figuratively. Learning how to get the gunk out of the way, be it dead skin cells or requests I’m better off declining, helped me get my inner and outer glow back. Go get your summer glow on!*

*And if winter is approaching where you live, keep that inner glow going strong! xoxo, Dale
