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.
3 weeks in and the products in the Summer Box still get me excited! Everything is perfect for my skin and the new products are unlike anything SB has released before - an acid toner, a foaming cleanser that actually foams into bubbles, a dry exfoliating cleanser, and a cooling, healing facial mist.
Changes I’ve seen
My acne is healing really fast and my scars from previous acne is fading at a faster rate. My skin stays hydrated all day and I’ve removed facial oil and cream moisturizer from my daytime skincare routine. Since incorporating an acid toner (Janah’s Strawberry Cocktail Exfoliating Toner) into my kbeauty lineup, my skin feels cleaner and look brighter.

Any changes I’ve made
I removed Anti Aging Eye Gel Oil from my AM routine, and I use Janah’s Strawberry Cocktail Toner morning and night vs only in the morning.
My daytime routine has become really fast and simple and I love it! I don’t have to worry about missing steps because I’m in a rush. My skin is actually responding better to using less products during the day . It almost seems as if I was confusing it before with all the treatments I was applying. I just focus on hydration during the day and treatment at night during skin’s peak regeneration time.
