Rachel's First Week With the Summer Box!


rachel week 1 summer box

 

General Impressions


Of course, the very first thing I noticed about the Summer Box was the incredible range of scents! From the Strawberry Cocktail Toner (coming soon!) to the Bamboo Dry Shampoo to the Coconut Serum, you’ll be smelling like the perfect summer piña colada. Every product is also really light and easily absorbed, which is perfect for summer when everything, including your skin, just sort of feels… saturated.


Changes I’ve seen


There haven’t really been any drastic changes in my skin, but my cheeks are definitely showing signs of healing! The clogged pores especially on the apples of my cheeks are slowly clearing out, and on the whole my skin just feels really smooth and soft all day.


Because the products absorb so quickly but are still really hydrating, I actually feel like I’m producing less oil than I usually do.

I’ve also used the Detox mask twice this week.


Any changes I’ve made


I think what I’ve had to adjust the most was the amount of moisturiser / hydrating products I was using. With the toner, my cheeks especially seemed to be getting a lot drier than usual, so I’ve had to pay more careful attention to consciously using products that are hydrating (like the Dream Mask), just to sort of keep things in balance.


Since it’s still early days, there are some little changes I make during the day, like how many pumps of the mist I use each time, or how many drops / how much of each serum. Work in progress!!


Overall thoughts


So far, the thing I’m most impressed with, as I’m sure everyone else is, is the box itself. With this little blue box, you have an ENTIRE, complete skin care routine! From the first cleanse to the final layer of moisturiser, plus little things to keep you fresh throughout the day, this is such a great way to battle hot and humid days while still feeling like a ~goddess~!
