The See New Skincare Box July/August 2021 Review
Our box arrived with an info card with all the deets on our products this month. It looks like I am in for a real treat!
Dew Drops Enzymatic Cleansing Gel, 3.7 fl oz - Retail Value $69.00
The first thing I noticed about this absolutely gorgeous cleanser was the wildly unique texture. It is some sort of magical gel/oil/balm hybrid and unlike anything I have tried before. It takes just a little to massage onto your face and start a decadent cleansing process. I actually found that I love using this on dry skin, but it works just as well on damp. It emulsifies when you add water and turns just a little milky, washing away dirt and oil and exfoliating without stripping your skin. It also leaves some great stuff behind, like antioxidants, nurturing oils, and conditioning plant extracts. It has a bright tart scent that reminds me of sunshine and citrus.
Green Nectar Marine Hydrator, 1.9 fl oz - Retail Value $64.00
This is such a beautiful twist on a hyaluronic acid serum. It contains multiple sizes of this great hydrating ingredient for deeper skin penetration as well as botanical extracts from land and sea, like calendula, kelp, plantain, and passionflower. Everything comes together to create a serum that is lightweight but heavy-hitting, and perfect for layering with other skincare faves without any pesky peeling. It has a sharp and fresh green scent that I loved.
Thousand Petals Flower Acid Resurfacing Mask, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $52.00
This pretty mask did smell a bit less floral than I expected, but the soft scent was lovely, even if faint. And even though this was a mask featuring clay (kaolin to be exact) I noticed no drying effect. In fact, I found the mix of flower extracts and acids to be rejuvenating and brightening. These effects come from exfoliating lactic acid, pyruvic acid, fruit acids, and flower acids that help remove dead skin without being irritating. You might notice a slight tingle if you aren't a regular exfoliator, and this is totally normal. After leaving the mask on for 10-15 minutes, remove it with water and a gentle massage in small circles. It has the most gentle physical exfoliating granules from bamboo powder which complete this two-step exfoliation, revealing bright polished skin.
Barrier Warrior Multigrain Peptides + Ceramides Gel, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $74.00
As someone over 30 and focused on anti-aging care for my skin, peptides and ceramides are two of my favorite skin treats. This one also brings some of my other favorites along too, like brightening niacinamide, hydrating hyaluronic acid, antioxidant-rich green tea, and my favorite green thing, cicapair! It also is just the plushest feeling cream serum that hydrates and adds a great glow to my face.
Good Earth - CoQ10 + Vitamins Thanaka Mask, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $52.00
My last item was a beautiful brown mask. This little pot celebrates all the goodness of the earth, like clay, bark, honey, apples, roots, and botanical ferments. It has a scent that is earthy and sweet and a thicker texture. This mask kind of does it all: it hydrates, improves texture, brightens, tones, and boosts collagen. And, much like the first mask, wasn't drying. I did find that the layer of mask I applied on myself did dry after about 10 minutes so I decided to mist it with a hydrosol to rehydrate and I loved this! When it was time to remove, I used lukewarm water and massage movements to gently rinse it away. My skin was left feeling refreshed and calm.
Verdict: See New Skincare Box has a whopping value of $311 this month. That is bananas for a $47 box. And, the full sizes continue to delight! See New is pretty much the perfect box for someone into indie brands who wants to try out an entire routine from a single brand. It is really an experience unlike other beauty boxes out there! I loved the Forest Rhapsody brand chosen this month and thought the formulas were really unique, super enjoyable to use, and very active. This continues to be one of my favorite beauty boxes.
