My oh my how time has flown! Here we are half way through July already (although yay summer!), which means it’s MINTD‘s first birthday! This is such a special occasion and I am so excited to tell you all about this celebratory box because it is a good one. Over the past year there have been mostly hits and a few misses from MINTD for me, but this beautifully curated selection has seriously impressed me. I have been introduced to new products from two of my favourite brands, discovered a lovely product from a brand I’ve never heard of and finally found a product I actually like (woo!) from a brand that hasn’t worked for me in the past. This is exactly what I love and hope for when it comes to beauty boxes and I am so pleased with every product in the 1st Birthday The Glow Edit. Continue reading

MINTD April Box Review

(Disclaimer – the box was sent for review purposes. This post is not an ad, paid for or sponsored and does not contain any affiliate links.)

One of the things I missed doing while taking a social media/blog break was reviewing the MINTD boxes, especially after my disappointing experience with the January box (here) but now I am back with April’s curated selection and I am in love. I feel like ever since the new year MINTD have continuously stepped up their monthly picks and each box from February to now has just got better and better. This month’s theme is “The Upkeep” and the products included have been chosen to “perfect and maintain the balance of your skin”, which they have absolutely done for me. Unlike with previous boxes where one or two of the products were not for me, this box was a total winner and I am so excited to tell you all about it. Continue reading

To say this year has flown by is an understatement and the fact that Christmas is less than two weeks away just boggles my mind. The past few months have been incredibly busy and pretty stressful, so much so that I couldn’t review the amazing looking November box (here), but I am back to give you an inside look at the last Mintd Box of the year. This month’s theme is Christmas (naturally) and the box contains 5 full size products and 1 deluxe sample size designed to help you “relax, pamper and spoil yourself”. In this post I am going to review all the products in the current box and then take a look back at my favourite discoveries from the previous ones, because there have been quite a few that deserve to be highlighted and talked about again.

First Impressions: MINTD July Box

IMG_8704

Considering my well documented love of samples, travel sized products and basically anything beauty related in miniature form, it may surprise you to know that I have never subscribed to any beauty boxes. You’d think they would be perfect for someone like me, but I am extremely picky and the idea of having a bunch of random samples and sachets arriving at my door every month just gives me anxiety. Not only that, these days you can get a sample of just about anything from Sephora or any green beauty alternative (Credo, The Detox Market, Content Beauty) and most brands offer free samples when you order from them directly, so the idea of paying for samples (no matter how small the cost) just seems like a waste of money to me.
