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

MINTD January Box Review

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

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.

Mintd October Box Review

Even though I have had this beautiful box of goodies for a few weeks now, I have been working and travelling so much that I sadly haven’t had the chance to share my love for it until now. The funny thing about how busy I have been lately is that this box is the perfect antidote to that. This month’s theme is ‘Your Essential Beauty Sleep’ and it could not have come at a better time, since sleep has been as mythical as the Loch Ness Monster I failed to spot in Scotland last month. Mintd have yet again put together another thoughtfully curated selection of luxurious products and even though I say it every time, this is my favourite box so far. It is so ideal for this time of year, but more than just being a seasonal delight, it also resonates on a spiritual level because it perfectly caters to that inevitable downward shift in emotions we all can’t help but feel going into Autumn. This box is like a big, warm hug for your tired mind, skin and soul and I can’t wait to tell you all about it. Continue reading

Autumn has officially arrived and Mintd Box are here to help get your complexion back on track with their excellent Post Summer Skin Rehab Box. This month’s curated collection is all about repairing any sun damage and making sure you don’t lose that gorgeous summer glow. I love this theme and each Mintd box is somehow even better than the last and this one is no exception. I haven’t tried any of these brands before and while not all of the products worked for me, the ones that did are exciting discoveries that are now staples for me. I have had this box for a few weeks and have used each product enough to give you a full review on everything, so keep reading to find out what you’re missing when it comes to Mintd, because it’s not too late to get this box!

MINTD August Box Review

After how much I loved Mintd’s July box (review here), you can bet I was impatient excited to get my hands on this month’s offerings and it did not disappoint. Even though this is only Mintd’s second box, the amazing founder Cheryl has curated an excellent selection of products that I could not wait to try. The theme for this month is ‘Explore’ and the box provides you with everything you need to give yourself a proper head to toe pamper. I’ve had the products for about two weeks now and in this post I will fill you in on how I’ve been getting on with everything. Continue reading

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.
