Here we are with the first MINTD Box review of the year and after surviving the mess that was 2016 (shudders), a “Rejuvenate” themed selection of goodies is just what my skin needs. Unfortunately, this was a mixed bag again with some products being absolutely amazing, while others being so bad that I couldn’t bare to use them. Saying that, this box is still incredible value for money as it costs £65 and you save a massive £94, which is almost 2/3’s of the total value, so I would still highly recommend it as the products I love far outweigh the ones I don’t. My reviews are always going to be honest no matter who I’m working with, so keep reading to find out what I thought of everything in this month’s kit. Continue reading

One of the things I love most about my birthday is the freedom to treat myself all month long (yes all month, hello Leo season!) without feeling guilty and what I unabashedly want most is more skincare. Yep, I love skincare so much that I have multiple categorized (cleansers, toners etc) and ranked (most wanted to casual wants) wish lists dedicated to all the beautiful products I can’t wait to get on my face, and this post is a look at the things I want right now.

March and April Empties: Part 1

IMG_6362

More than the just for the satisfaction of seeing everything I have used up, I love doing empties posts because as I’ve said before, I think it’s so important to reevaluate my thoughts on the things I use once they’re all gone. In this post is a huge collection of products I finished during March and April while travelling. It took a lot for me not to throw all this out on the go but I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to document my “success” so here it all is! Continue reading

Top Three Purifying Serums: Kypris Clearing Serum, Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum And Bravura London 2% Salicylic Acid Peel Review

IMG_4404

Serums are such an important step in our skincare routine and because I have combination skin, having a great purifying one is essential to keeping my complexion balanced, clear and smooth. Over the years I have used some pretty harsh ones (high alcohol content etc) that have left my skin irritated, dry and flaky but these three have been complete heroes for me. I wanted to do a post about them together because not everyone with acne or who is acne prone needs the same thing but between these serums there is an option for every skin type, acne level, ingredients preference and budget.

Even though some of these products are more recent discoveries than others, all of them have become firm staples in my collection that I reached for time and time again last year, so keep reading to find out why!

September Empties

IMG_1491

It’s a little hard to keep track of empties on the road because on one hand it’s a bit weird travelling around with empty products but on the other hand,  I want to keep them so I can blog about them! I kept as much as I could but a lot of things I have used up have been dumped a long the way (stuff I have mentioned before many times) so these are the things I have finished recently AND been able to hang on to.
