The See New Skincare Box is a $56 bi-monthly beauty box filled with green beauty items that focus on cruelty-free, chemical-free, and sustainably sourced ingredients.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The brand this month is UMM Skincare! And it looks like this assortment contains a curation of both body care and a tea!
This box delivered four amazing products from this wonderful brand.
Let's dive in!
UMM: The Body Oil, 4 fl oz - Retail Value $64.99
Can we take a moment to appreciate this presentation? GOLD FLAKES in my body oil? I deserve such magic. And the oil itself is one of the most moisturizing I have used. My legs tend to get red bumps when I use lotions, so I am a body oil enthusiast. For whatever reason, I never get irritation with an oil. This one is heavier and to-the-max hydrating. It is a blend of almond, jojoba, safflower, grape seed, and sesame oil. It also has calming Ashwagandha and saffron. The scent is a blend of bright geranium and sexy ylang ylang, and the warming sensation makes this oil feel as magical as it smells.
UMM: Imperfectly Perfect Bar, 4 oz - Retail Value $19.99
Admittedly, I am not a bar soap sort of babe. Will, on the other hand, loves nothing more in his shower experience than a hard rock of soap. I knew he would have to be the tester here. My husband is a man of, well, few words, so I might embellish his thoughts here a little. A few ingredients before we see what lyrical praises Will creates: this bar is mostly olive and coconut oil, with other fatty and skin-loving oils included too. It also has detoxifying clay and smells like oranges, earth, and cloves. I quite liked the scent. Will described it as "nice" which is actually pretty high praise from him. He also mentioned liking the gentle grittiness of the soap and how it made him feel "clean but not dry". I didn't tell him this bar of soap has a retail value of $20. He doesn't understand how much really great soap can cost, and I don't want to ruin this for him.
UMM: Hand & Body Butter, 8 oz - Retail Value $49.99
Anyways, back to me. I am obsessed with this body butter. It smells so sexy and good! The notes here are jasmine, sandalwood, juicy currants, and roses. This stuff smells fancy and expensive. The texture is as luxe as the smell, heavy and decadent but still absorbing well, though it does leave me a little shiny. It is the sort of moisturizer that keeps you velvety all day, with superstars like aloe, shea, sunflower seed oil, and vitamin E inside. This is the perfect sort of formula to apply before putting on some cozy sweatpants and hopping into bed.
UMM: IM.MU.NI.TY Tea, 1.2 oz - Retail Value $14.99
It feels like a long, long time since I did any tea reviews. I used to review tea subscriptions but my favorite one ended up disappearing. I guess I actually haven't had much tea at all lately, which kind of makes me sad as someone who used to have at least 2 cups a day. Well, this is a nice start back to that habit. Here is a peek at the ingredients:
Organic tulsi leaf, organic rooibos herb, organic gymnema sylvestre leaf, organic cinnamon bark, organic turmeric root, organic haritaki herb and organic hibiscus flower.
What is interesting about this blend is that it combines warmer ingredients (cinnamon, turmeric) with brighter notes like hibiscus. The tulsi (holy basil) is a great anti-inflammatory while rooibos teas are high in antioxidants. I enjoyed this one solo, but if you want a little sweetness, raw sugar or honey would be a great compliment to this earthy yet floral brew. There are 15 bags inside.
See New: The Skincare Box was a little unexpected this month, but I enjoyed it as always. I can see some subscribers being less into things like tea and soap, but I felt like it was a nice trip outside the skincare norm. I do think the body oil is my pick from this assortment, though the body butter is a very close second. The total value here lands at $149.96 for a $56 cost.
