The brand this month is Earth Harbor!
This box delivered five amazing products from this wonderful brand.
Let's dive in!
AHOY LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser, 2 fl oz - Retail Value $19
I really love the Earth Harbor brand. Their serums and oils are some of my favorites! That being said, this cleanser was a big miss for me. I was really excited to try it out but it had a weird texture and didn't feel good on my face. I think this is because it stung a little. I had a dermaplane last week so my skin is a little sensitive. And the number 3 ingredient here is cane alcohol and it has that evaporating alcohol sort of vibe on my face. I also didn't think it felt very great as I massaged it in, though it did clean my face just fine and I didn't notice any dryness or irritation after I washed it off This one just might not have been my cup of tea. I am wondering if this might be a better fit for someone with oilier skin?
CACAO COVE Detoxifying Vitamin C Mask, 2 oz - Retail Value $28
This mask was delightful! It arrives as a dry powder made of cacao, green clay, algae, coconut milk, and charcoal. And it smells like some sort of chocolate-lemon dream dessert! You can mix it with water or get creative with yogurt or even your favorite carrier oil (I recommend rosehip seed!). It is calming and cooling when applied and a pretty brown color. I like to wash clay masks off before they fully dry, but if you are oilier or just want a deeper detox mask moment, let it dry completely before gently washing it off.
CELESTINE Hydra-Plumping Peptide Serum, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $45
Celestine is a hyaluronic acid-focused serum designed to plump and hydrate skin with peptides, aloe, and niacinamide. Again, there is some cane alcohol in here and I felt it hit my skin, but I want to reiterate that I just had a super exfoliating skin service within the last week and I am betting that if I hadn't, I likely wouldn't notice as much. There is a strong scent here of lemongrass which isn't my favorite, but it is tempered some by that herbaceous blue tansy smell that I do enjoy. Overall, this is a solid option for anyone who enjoys a hyaluronic serum in their routine and its beautiful blue hue is even more to love.
MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer, 2 fl oz- Retail Value $42
This is another familiar product to me, but I was glad to see it again. A little side note before we dive in: this is a coconut oil heavy moisturizer. Most of you know that I always like to give this heads up when I see an ingredient that has a higher comedogenic rating. So, if you are acne prone, test this one before diving in! Aside from that, it has moisturizers like aloe, antioxidant-rich matcha, hyaluronic acid, and turmeric! It smells like my favorite calming oil, Blue Tansy!
ECLIPSE Sheer Mineral Sunscreen, 1 fl oz - Retail Value $25
My final item was an SPF30 sunscreen which makes me very happy! I wear SPF every single day and so should you! This one is lightweight, non-greasy, and also full of other skin-loving ingredients like aloe, green tea, and shea. It left zero chalky cast and didn't have much of a scent. Earth Harbor also sells a larger bottle which I will probably be investing in when this one is running low.
See New: The Skincare Box is such a fun box. If you are looking to do a deep dive into one new brand at a time, you really can't miss out on this one. This month delivered $159 for a cost of $56 and is an excellent introduction to this sea-themed and USA-made brand. I do wish some of my favorite serums would have made the cut for this curation (seriously, Marina, Helios, and Aurora are my jams!) but I think subscribers are really going to enjoy the selection here.
