The September Box
Calendula Essential Hydrating Cream, Carrot Seed Soothing Facial Oil, and Oat Cleansing Facial Polish
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This lush cream deeply nourishes dry, sensitive skin without ever feeling greasy. An infusion of comforting calendula is joined by conditioning borage oil, while trehalose, a saccharide, protects from harsh climates and dehydration.
- The answer to stressed skin—an ultra-calming blend of oils including vitamin-E rich carrot seed, lightweight evening primrose, and relaxing lavender.
- Soothing oats and exfoliating jojoba beads sweep away dull skin and impurities in this triple threat cleanser, scrub, and mask.
