Each box comes with a booklet detailing the month’s products and prices. Art of Organics’ theme this month was “Protect” and the products were intended to protect your skin as the weather is transitioning to cooler days. The box band print this month was done by Brittany, a Chicago-based print designer.

Ursa Major Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum (1 oz.) – Value $54.00

This light facial serum comes out as a creamy consistency, not clear like oil. It’s a yellow color and has a bright orange essence with a hint of bitterness, just like freshly grated orange zest. This serum can be worn alone as a daily moisturizer or layered with another facial moisturizer or night treatment for an extra dose of protection. The serum is 100% naturally derived and leaves skin feeling brightened, softer and more elastic. Our weather here in NJ right now is unseasonably warm so I’ve been sticking with more lightweight moisturizers for now and this serum applied right out of the shower in the morning is just what my skin needs to feel soft and smooth, with no greasy residue.

Akar Lush Balance Toning Mist (1.7 oz.) – Listed Value $40.00

I’ve never been quite sure when to use a facial mist, but this one smells and feels so fabulous I will have to fit it into my daily routine. Simply shake the bottle then spray 3-5 times on a freshly cleansed face. I was happy to see it doesn’t contain any alcohol which irritates and dried out my sensitive skin. My skin felt fresh after using the mist and if over time it helps with some fine lines then that will make it even better.

Verdict: I was so happy to see items by Ursa Major and Akar this month, both are brands I was introduced to by Clean Beauty Box since my subscription started. They’re brands I’ve come to rely on as effective and well-made with ingredients I want to put on my skin. Clean Beauty has full-size products, amazing customer service, and beautiful packaging, what more can you ask for? The $94 value this month is more than double the cost of the box ($39 a month). Hands down my favorite subscription box ever!

  1. When are the November spoilers dropping ?

  2. I love that Akar toning mist – got it from Pearlesque in January. The smell is divine! And the sprayer bottle is so nice I decided to save it for next time I get a mist in a crappy sprayer. 🙂

    I’m seriously thinking of ordering this box!

    • How do you use the mist? Do you use it as a toner after cleansing and before serums and moisturizer?

  3. If I sign up today or tomorrow can I get September’s box too?
    If I use the code and buy 3 months will it be 10% off that total?
    I couldn’t tell from the website.

    • I think September box is sold out

  4. i LOVE the ursa major C serum. I just dropped $ on it which is too bad, but it’s great and I’m halfway through. Adore it. Super excited to have a bottle for when this runs out and an alcohol free toner is lovely. Great box this month! Thanks for reviewing so early!

    • You’re welcome! I’m glad it helped!

  5. Oh god, my Achilles heal of skin care products. My 2 favorite types of products in one box. Can’t resist this box anymore and I just cancelled pearlesque box so I guess it’s perfect timing.

  6. I intially signed up because I wanted to try the Akar oil. I never expected to keep it for a second month. I am now five months in and I have loved every box! I have tried items I never would have tried. I have even picked up a second of one box and bought one of their older boxes because I wanted to try those items. I really hope on Black Friday they offer a deal for current customers and I will be getting a year subscription!

    • I remember last year they had a BF 20% off deal on any subscription length. I’m hoping they do that again this year, and I’ll sign up for a 6-month sub. (I’ll re-sub anyways in January if they don’t offer a BF deal, but a deal would be nice!)

      • Yes! A BF deal would be so nice. If they do it I am going to get the year one and it be a present to myself! Luna how would you use the spray toner? Would it replace a normal toner after cleansing and before serums and moisturizer?

  7. This one is for sure a winner!

    Finding an alcohol free toner is KEY.

  8. I just finished my six-month sub and I miss it so much! 😭 I don’t think I can give up this box.

  9. This box is amazing! My two most favorite categories in skincare! Cannot wait to receive mine!

  10. I’ve been wanting to try this one for a while – October is a winner!!! Yay – a new box for me… thanks for the review!! 🙂

    • I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
