Marissa has normal to oily skin wih 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.
Summer is usually very busy for me so I like how the Summer Box has simplified my day time routine. I pretty much just use what’s in the box with a couple of staples and spf. Even cutting my AM regimen in half, I feel adequately hydrated and my skin looks refreshed. Not to mention that all the crisp scents of the Summer Box products really wake me up! Peppermint, strawberry, coconut, cucumber...it’s such a wonderful way to start the day.
Changes I’ve seen
I don’t need a moisturizer! This box is an oily skin type’s dream. I feel comfortable all day without adding a facial oil or cream moisturizer. My hormonal acne seems to be healing at a faster rate.

Any changes I’ve made
I’m really excited to see how much more I can simplify my routine! I like only spending a few minutes on my morning routine because Morning Madness is one of the busiest times of my day. PLUS it leaves more time for masking.
