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.

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.

As many of you will know by now, Omorovicza are a brand I have loved and used for many years. It all began one Christmas when I received a beautiful set of deluxe samples and since then the products have become a constant staple in my routines. When they asked me to take part in their Summer Skin Edit series I could not have been more excited and humbled. It was a huge honour to collaborate with one of my all time favourite brands and I had such a good time shooting my picks. You can check out my edit on Omorovicza’s blog here and below is a full description of everything I picked and why. Enjoy! Continue reading

On The Road Beauty Buys

If you already follow me on Instagram, then you will know that I have been on the road for most of this month. It has been a crazy few weeks with over 10 flights and despite my best efforts, it wasn’t always possible for me to keep my skin looking its best. Thankfully, everywhere I went I was able to find a Sephora to buy some products to deal with the issues my skin was having as a result of all the travelling. These are my favourite picks from my purchases and the ones that worked the best. Continue reading
