MINTD BOX - The Christmas Edition
Ok.....so if ever there was proof that throughout the month of November I was an incredibly bad blogger this is it! (hangs head in shame!) My last post was a review of the November Mintd Box and here we are a month later and I'm reviewing December's! However, you can never have too much of a good thing right?! And this month's Christmas Edition Mintd Box is no exception! If it's possible I think they've actually topped last month's!
I've been using all these goodies over the last couple of weeks and whether you're planning on perhaps getting this for yourself or as a present for someone I thought I'd give you a little insight into some of the products contained in this special 'Christmas Edition' box.
So here goes....
"Only premium brand products stocked in the likes of Net-a-Porter, Selfridges, Liberty and Harrods..."
So those of you who perhaps are not familiar with Mintd Box they are a relatively new beauty subscription box with a bit of a difference to your 'run of the mill' beauty boxes. They offer only premium brand products stocked in the likes of Net-a-Porter, Selfridges, Liberty and Harrods and the products are mostly full size with the exception usually of one Deluxe Size Sample. So I guess what I'm trying to say is, there are no useless small samples in these boxes which in my opinion don't allow you to full try a product out properly.
The best part about the Mintd Box is the money saving to be made. For example, this month's box is worth £175 and you can get it for just £65 (and with additional 10% off if you use the code 10OFF1ST )
It's the perfect no-brainer gift for the skincare / beauty lover!
Ioma - Fresh Gel Eye Makeup Remover (Full Size Product in Box - £20 available from www.beautyexpert.com)
Hands down, I have the most sensitive eyes in the world, so much so I'm scared to stray away from my usual eye makeup remover! However, for the purpose of this post I gave this a go and have to say I am really impressed! The gel texture is unusual but strangely satisfying and it removes eye makeup (including waterproof make up) in a flash. What I'm really keen on though is the fact that it conditions lashes and with regular use claims to increase volume, length and strength of lashes....and I'm ALL over that!!! :)

Ellis Faas - Milky Lips L202 (Full Size Product in Box - £23 available from Selfridges)
I've often thought about picking up some products from Ellis Faas but never got around to it. After trying this lovely gloss / lipstick hybrid I'm keen to try more products from the range (I've heard their mascara is also very good!). This is a rich, Christmassy Red and feels comfortable on the lips and hellooo....would you look at that packaging?! :)
Anne Semonin - Cream Mask and Face Mask Brush - (Full Size Product in Box - Mask £42 / Brush £20 from www.beautyexpert.com)
"One of the best soothing and moisturising masks I've ever used"
I was absolutely delighted to find an Anne Semonin mask in this month's Mintd Box having seen her products all over my social media lately. I will boldly say that this is one of the best soothing and moisturising masks I've ever used. The brush also makes it an absolute cinch to apply (and I've been using it for all my other masks too - I will never use my fingers to apply a mask ever again - there is something so satisfying about 'painting' a face mask onto your face!)
Siskyn - Night Facial Oil (Full Size Product in Box - £58 from www.siskyn.com)
It's Winter, my skin is dry and I'm wanting to give it as much help as possible! This fantastic night facial oil can be used every evening after cleansing and helps to increase collagen production. I love how plump it makes my skin look when I wake up in the morning! I'm ploughing through this stuff like nobodies business at the moment!
Wildheart Organics - Sanctuary Travel Candle (Travel Size Product in Box - £12 from www.wildheartorganics.com)
If you know me, you'll know I love a candle! So it's not surprise that after I'd photographed these products for my blog I couldn't wait to light this! Perfect for this time of year when things get a bit stressful, this aromatherapy candle assists with relaxation and anxiety and smells absolutely divine! The heart of the fragrance is jasmine, chamomile and geranium with calming rosewood and patchouli. I will be sad when this is finished! I've also managed to get about 30 hours burn time out of it so far and it's nowhere near finished!
Grab one while you can!
