Marissa has normal to oily skin with hormonal breakouts and the first signs of aging. She lives in San Jose, CA which is hot (80-90 degrees during the day) and dry in the summer.
The Summer Box plays so well with my skin. Everything absorbs so quickly and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. Most of what I use in The Box is during the day. It’s all I need to stay hydrated and comfortable (no tightness) throughout the day.
Changes I’ve seen
No new acne has formed and my acne scars have reduced in redness almost completely. Even my old brown acne scars have faded some. My pores are still as small as last week and my hydration level continues to stay balanced.

Any changes I’ve made
I haven’t made any changes to my routine
My skin has a fresh, lit from within glow but remains matte in texture. It’s difficult to find the right regimen that will leave your skin healthy and radiant looking without a dewy finish and/or sticky/slippery texture. When I touch my face, I feel my skin, not the skincare. Not only is my skin happy with all the nutrients I’ve been feeding it, but I use less products! My daytime skincare routine has been cut in half and my night time regimen has been simplified. The 2018 Summer Box is the perfect set for daily hydration and programming my skin to keep my moisture levels balanced.
