First Impressions:


The brand this month is Skin Essence Organics!

The Products

This box delivered five amazing products from this wonderful brand.

Let's dive in!

Skin Essence Organics: Soothe Facial Moisturizer, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $32


This box started off with a bang. I am obsessed with this moisturizer. It is absolutely an oil sort of deal, but even if you prefer cream moisturizers, give this one a chance. It has a soft and earthy smell that is really pleasant, with notes of sage and sweet grass. It also has a simple but wildly nourishing ingredient list: jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, rosehip seed oil, and borage oil. These are combined with soothing calendula, antioxidant-rich vitamin E, sage, and galbanum. For me, this is light enough for daytime wear, but if you are on the oily side, try this as a nighttime treat right before bed. You will wake up with soft and calm skin!

Skin Essence Organics: Calming and Toning Facial Mist, 4 oz - Retail Value $29


I. Love. Mists. I do! And as someone prone to redness, seeing the word "calming" on a mist means I already love it. I used this straight on my face for a little pick-me-up during the day (it also adds instant dewiness!) but my favorite way to use mists like this is in a mask cocktail. You can actually do that with another item that arrived this month, but more on that later. So what is the point of a toning mist? Well, if they are formulated well, they balance the pH of your skin, add moisture, and just feel really nice. They are also great for setting makeup, adding dampness to the face before a serum, and thinning out heavier moisture creams. This formula consists of a blend of hydrosols from rose, calendula, lemon balm, and cucumber. These are combined with witch hazel to make a really lovely mist that anyone could enjoy. And, yes, it smells as amazing as it sounds!

Skin Essence Organics: Pure Gentle Facial Cleanser, 4.05 fl oz - Retail Value $27


As someone who generally prefers a cream or oil cleanser, I was still curious about this brown sort of gel formula. Could it get my face clean without stripping it and making it feel tight? Well, it sure did. I expected it to have a scrubby texture because of the brown particles inside, but it didn't at all. Those brown bits are ground-up comfrey root powder which is a natural anti-inflammatory. The other ingredients in this non-comedogenic formula include glycerine, jojoba oil, and calming blue chamomille. It also has saponified sunflower and coconut oils. I loved its faint herbal and earthy scent and thought is was wonderful to use. I am thrilled with this large glass bottle!

Skin Essence Organics: Facial in a Jar, 50 mL- Retail Value $21


I first tried this product way back in 2021 in the See New January/February box. And I still really love it! It arrives as a dry powder consisting of oat powder, marshmallow root powder, jasmine flowers, white clay, stevia, cornmeal, and green tea. Adding water to it creates a greenish-brown clay texture that is best applied with a brush. I highly recommend getting adventurous with your mixture though. Add in some of the toning mist from earlier in this review, or even some of the rosehip seed oil which we will discuss below! It is very easy to customize this experience exactly for what your skin needs. If you are feeling oily, use water or witch hazel and let it dry on your skin before rinsing. Need moisture? Add in some oil and maybe a little honey for a skin-softening experience that will leave you dewy!

Skin Essence Organics: Rosehip Seed Oil, 15 mL- Retail Value $15


If I was stuck on a desert island, rosehip seed oil is likely the skincare essential I would choose. Well, that and SPF. But I really, really love rosehip seed oil. This little bottle does it all! You can actually cleanse with this. Just add it to dry or damp skin, massage, and rinse! Clean and calm. Because you can leave this on as a moisturizer, it also makes a great makeup remover too. Apply, wipe with a damp cloth, and then massage in the leftover oil. It makes a great cuticle oil and even a lip moisturizer in a pinch! Because it contains a high level of antioxidants, using it over time is great for anti-aging and skin firmness.


See New: The Skincare Box just always delivers such an immersive experience. It's such a treat to get a whole little routine in the mail. And, for myself, it has been an extra blessing as I am now splitting my time between PA and TN now more than ever. Instead of dragging all of my skincare to and from, I am building a second set to use at home! And products like the ones included this month are absolutely perfect for this. I love knowing I will have a solid routine regardless of where I lay my head these days. Unless my mom ends up using everything while I am away! The total value of this month's curation lands at $124 which is a nice value for a $56 box.

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.

Even due to the shipping delays with this box the past month, it’s still my favorite. Truly cannot wait what is in the next box. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a sunscreen!

I got shipping notification for the June box on 5 June, the tracking has not updated at all…I emailed customer service over 5 days ago and no answer ?? I do think they have very slow customer service. The chat feature doesn’t work either, I tried, no one answers the chat then hours later it says to leave an email an your concern will be answered, I tried that too, I got no response.

Its been a week since I asked by email about my box status that was sent 5 June and tracking not updated at all, still Nothing!! That’s 5 business days!! Poor Customer service in my opinion

I placed an order April 15th which still hasn’t shipped. Initially, the CS response was good. Since the end of May, they stopped replying. I can’t get an answer thru any channel.


Wow, I’ve skipped the last few boxes, but these comments are surprising. They used to ship so quickly. Hope this isn’t a sign they grown too big too quickly. They’re one of my favorites.

I agree with Mia. Their customer service used to be stellar, so these comments took me by surprise. They were very prompt when I contacted them back in November, and they gave me a more than satisfactory resolution to my problem.


Same here. This is the May/June box, like seriously. I get that they moved but it’s a bit frustrating for sure to be getting this box at when the next box will be out. Also, I prepay for three boxes at a time so I’m not a new subscriber.

I no longer subscribe to this box – I can’t justify the expense these days so I’ve gotten rid of my subs – but I did find that customer service was incredibly slow to the point that I started worrying. They need to work on that.
