There are so many different beauty subscription boxes around at the moment, it’s hard to know which ones are the best. A new one (to me) is the MINTD beauty box. And, so far, so impressed!
I have had a few beauty boxes in the past, either via Life Daily, or through spending my own cold, hard, cash on them myself, but I’ve always cancelled them eventually, usually due to the fact that I ended up with a million sample sized products that I’ll never use. However, a luxury beauty box that gives you full sized or deluxe sample size products is a whole new kettle of fish!
The products from MINTD are from retailers like Harrods, Net A Porter, Liberty and Selfridges, so you know they’re going to be good.
This months edition is the recovery edit. Which, seeing as we’re midway through the summer ‘holidays’ – is pretty good timing. The products are all about indulging, healing formulas to help repair and revive the skin.
The MINTD Box contains five products – 3 full size and 2 super deluxe sample sized. It’s total value is £145, but the box retails at £65, either per month, or bi-monthly. I think it’s probably one of the more expensive boxes, but when you consider that one of the products included costs £60 on it’s own, I think it’s a bit of a bargain. Especially if you like the luxe stuff!
I love everything that came in my box this month, and, for a change, will actually use all of them!
//Earth Tu Face Hydrate & Repair Face Balm – Full Size Product £60
A delicate blend of Immortelle flowers, Rose Petals and Australian Sandalwood (smells incredible!) in an organic cream base. A little of this goes a long way, a tiny pea sized amount massaged into damp skin is plenty, and will be absorbed by the skin in around 10 mins, leaving your face feeling calm, soothed and moisturised.
//SJAL Deep Pore Cleanser – Super Deluxe Size £9.40 (Full Size £47.00)
I have used SJAL a few times in the past, and it is sooooo good. This is a rich gel-cream cleanser with no foaming action (so no stripped skin feeling!) which delivers instant hydration, but also shifts stubborn make up (including mascara).
// Su-Man Rehydrating Toning Essence – Full Size Product £38
This is a new one to me, I had never heard of this brand before so I’m looking forward to seeing how it works. It’s said to be instantly hydrating and refreshing, packed with hyaluronic acid to replenish moisture and rose petal essence to repair and soften. I love the packaging, the glass bottle is gorgeous and it has such a light fragrance, it’s a beauty!
// Cocolux Australia Tonka Bean & Lime Zest Candle – Super Deluxe Size £20 (Full Size £36.00)
I flipping LOVE candles. All candles. Every single candle. This one did not disappoint! It’s hand poured in Australia from a natural and sustainable coconut wax blend. It burns clean and has a pure cotton wick! It’s free from paraffin wax, free from palm wax and oil and free from soy wax! Oh, and it smells absolutely bloody LUSH. I don’t want it to run out!
// Ameliorate Smoothing Body Exfoliant – Full Size Product £17.50
This product is the one I am looking forward to trying the most. I’ve read so many good things about this brand, but I’ve never actually got round to buying any myself (rubbish!) This is designed to remove the bumpy skin look, sloughing away dead skin cells and encouraging the new healthy cells to the surface, leaving the skin feeling softer, smoother and more comfortable. Use it 2-3 times a week by massaging onto dry skin before showering or bathing, leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing off. So long bumpy arms!
If you are looking for something a little bit more luxurious than the usual beauty boxes, then you’re going to love this MINTD Box.
