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

Of course my first blog post of the year has ended up involving Deciem! While this was not the plan, it seems those sneaky monkeys have been keeping a pretty big secret from us, which I cannot keep from you, so here we are with the exciting reveal. When The White Company first reached out to me about trying their mysterious new launch I was pretty excited because I immediately thought “oooh, candles!” and oh, how wrong I was. Instead what arrived was a beautifully big white box full of……skincare! Yep, that’s right, The White Company are launching their very first line of skincare products and they partnered with Deciem to do it! Continue reading

The Oskia Review: Renaissance Cleansing Gel, Eye Wonder Serum and Renaissance 360 Supreme Cream

My love affair with Oskia began over two years ago with the release of their now cult product – the Renaissance Cleansing Gel. Since then, I have tried and loved multiple products from the beautiful line and in this post I am finally going to do a review of the cleanser that started it all, as well as the Eye Wonder Serum and the soon to be released Renaissance 360 Supreme Cream.

One of the things I love most about Oskia is their commitment to scientifically driven, plant based nutritional skincare. The founder, Georgie Cleeve, understood the need for both nature and science and combined both to create a thoughtful range of products that nurture the skin and actually work. Oskia are focused on healthy skin and all of their products are packed with vitamins, minerals, omegas and bio-actives to help their customers achieve the healthiest skin from the inside and out. There are no extravagant, unrealistic claims with Oskia and they fully acknowledge and advocate that healthy skin must be cultivated from within, but they also understand that what we put on our skin can really make a difference and their products definitely do that.

Birthday Skincare Wish List

A few weeks ago I shared on Instagram a post about the skincare products I wanted for my birthday. It was more for fun than an actual demand for presents but I still enjoyed the process of really thinking about which skincare items I would most like to receive and why. I am very particular about my skincare shopping and over the past couple of years have really toned down my “impulse purchases”. A lot of research goes into anything I decide to buy and I have either tried a sample and loved it or it’s a product from a brand I know and trust and I’m confident I will love. So, without further adieu, here’s what made the list. Continue reading
