The See New Skincare Box March/April 2021 Review



Our box arrived with an info card with all the deets on our products this month and also a self-care menu that is really well done and very cute.


Light Mist Facial Toner, 4 fl oz - Retail Value $30.00

I love, love, love a mist! I use them all the time. And this one is a very generous size inside a beautifully minimal glass bottle. Many mists I have tried are great for refreshing your face and adding hydration, and this one does both very well thanks to the rose water and aloe inside. In addition, this mist also has antioxidant-rich vitamin C for brightening, lactic acid for exfoliation, and moisturizing sodium PCA. I am always using mists on my face, but especially in the summertime, it's a nice treat to chill something like this in the fridge and then mist your face, shoulder, and neck as needed for a refreshing and hydrating boost.


Firefly Face Mask, 1.7 oz - Retail Value $42.00 (currently sold out)

What a pretty, pretty mask. And I love how the ingredient list is shorter and full of things I recognize, like jasmine rice, chia seeds, mushroom, and more. I found it was honestly a little hard to use. The ingredients suggested adding enough water to make a "paste" and that never really happened for me. I also found that it was prone to falling off my face whenever I moved, which was a little frustrating. Instead, I applied it to my face and gently massaged in small circles, treating it like an exfoliant instead. Because the size of the particles in this mask are larger, I made sure to not rub with much pressure. It felt really great and did leave my skin softer and calmer than before. Next time I am going to try adding a little honey to see if that helps.

Here is what it looked like with water added!


I am Enough Facial Oil, 15 mL - Retail Value $34.00

Another oil for my facial oil hoard! No complaints here. I LOVE facial oils and actually go through them pretty fast since I often slather them on before bed as a last step. I also use them often on my knees, cuticles, and elbows. This is a smaller bottle, but I loved the ingredients inside! Again, this has a super easy to scan ingredient list with lots of familiar faces: argan oil, pumpkin seed oil, meadowfoam, and tamanu oil. Heads up for my acne-prone friends: this also has evening primrose oil, which can be comedogenic. It also has a nice antioxidant boost from coenzyme Q-10. It was a heavier oil and one I would totally use at night myself. You can also add a few drops to your fave moisturizer if you would prefer to not go full-oil application. The stronger and very specific argan oil scent is also worth mentioning, though I will admit it is a weird scent I have come to really like.


First Light Lightweight Face Lotion, 30 mL - Retail Value $38.00

This lotion is indeed super lightweight! It is pretty much an ideal summer weight for me and if you have normal to oily skin, it might be good for you year-round. Lots of delights inside: aloe, meadowfoam, hyaluronic acid, panthenol, and lactic acid. These together mean you get moisturizing, gentle exfoliation, and some soothing power. I also love that this lotion has resveratrol, one of my favorite sources of antioxidants that comes from red wine grapes. This lotion is perfect for mixing with your facial oils because it is so lightweight! It has also become a great option for me to wear daily to the gym to provide a little barrier between my skin and my pesky mask, without making me feel greasy or filmy.


Leave No Trace Rinse-Free Facial Cleanser, 50 mL - Retail Value $34.00

While I think this product is geared to someone who might get out and about in the woods overnight more often than I do, it is a really cool idea. Basically, it is a water-free cleanser. You simply apply it to your dry face, massage, and then wipe it away. If you prefer water in your cleansing routine (I do!) you can also use this as you would a normal cleanser or even as a brightening mask by leaving it on for about 10 minutes under steam to keep it hydrated. While this wasn't my favorite item this month, I always appreciate a cool new product to try, and I will be passing this along to a very outdoorsy friend.


Verdict: See New Skincare Box featured a brand that was very minimalist and nature-inspired this delivery. As usual, I love that I get to really explore a brand in-depth by receiving a range of their products in full-size packaging. The mist and the lotion were by far my favorites this time, but I loved how unique the mask and the cleanser felt too. And, well, I am always going to love a new facial oil! The value, as always, is great with this box. I received $174 worth of products for $47!

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

I tried the mask with water as well and had a hard time but then I went to the rain organica site and they say to mix it with the cleanser! After mixing it with the cleanser, it’s honestly one of my favorites masks I’ve ever tried!

The information See New sent about Rain Organica was very helpful and informative and I appreciated reading that as well. I think it’s important to realize that someone is behind all these products and I am sure it’s a labor of love. I enjoyed reading about the creator and her thoughts about each product.

Unfortunately, I have yet to try anything, but I am looking forward to experiencing this brand especially since everything arrived so pretty and fresh. I highly recommend this sub to any skincare enthusiast.

I love the face oil💕 but the face mist is a miss for me. The fragrance reminds me of the water at the bottom of dried up flowers 🙁

I’ve only tried the facial mist so far, and I love it!! Use it all over after showering post-sun exposure.

For the mask, they gave an idea to mix it with the cleanser. Since the cleanser sounds like I might not enjoy it normally, I’m going to try it as a mask base.

I’m going to try that as they suggested also, as I tried the mask by itself and had the same issue as Megan.

I didn’t even rub it in at all and had microtears from mixing it with just water. Be careful! 🙂

I had the same issue with the mask. Now I know I wasn’t doing it incorrectly. Their website also suggests using it as a hand mask. I might try that.
