The Perfect Solution to Holiday Packing with Mintd Box

"It's that time of year again...."

It's that time of year again, we're all jetting off to faraway places in search of some rest, relaxation and a break from our every day lives!

Part of the enjoyment in going away is the process of preparing to go away and of course this includes various clothing purchases (that you probably don't need but seem necessary!) and making sure you have dinky little versions of your favourite toiletries!

Then of course there's the in flight bag,  a very integral part of the packing process!

"Mintd Box have put together a fantastic selection of Premium Travel Beauty Essentials...."

Mintd Box have put together a fantastic selection of premium travel beauty essentials this month, perfect for taking away on holiday with you.

The box contains over £142 worth of items all of which have been chosen to be great to take away with you on holiday and I've been testing them all over the last couple of weeks!

Cleanse by Lauren Napier - 5 Cleansing Wipes (Full Size worth £8.00 from www.netaporter.com)

I don't very often use cleansing wipes at home, but for travelling, particularly when I want to remove my make up on a long haul flight they are absolutely essential.  These remove make up like a dream and smell lovely, perfect for popping in your hand luggage!

Stephie Ann - Anemone Silk Eye Mask (£23 from www.stephieanndesign.com)

As soon as I received this I immediately threw away my very sad and sorry looking Emirates eye mask.  I sometimes try and sleep on the plane but find it very difficult if the cabin is still even dimly lit so an eye mask is a must. 

It smells of lavender and feels so soft and luxurious, I've actually been using this at home too to help me sleep!

Miller Harris - Lumiere Doree Hand Cream (£18.00 from www.johnlewis.com)

Anyone else watch the skin on their hands shrivel up on a flight?! It's crazy how much the aeroplane cabin robs your skin of moisture.  Therefore, I always carry hand cream on a flight and this is such a gorgeous smelling one from Miller Harris.  It sinks in quickly and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy at all.

Aurelia Skincare - Miracle Cleanser With Cloth (Super Deluxe Size £14 from www.aureliaskincare.com)

When I go away I hate carting a full size cleanser with me, you only end up using a tiny bit and usually they are packaged in quite large heavy tubes or bottles.  A mini version is a most welcome addition to my travel bag!

This is a beautiful cleanser (and so it should be, the full size version is £62!) and leaves your skin hydrated, clean and bright and I would actually consider purchasing the full size version!

Rosalena - Goodness & Tonic Face Mist (£27.00 from www.rosalena.co.uk)

I love the little play on words here (gin and tonic,  goodness and tonic, get it?!) and this is a gorgeous smelling, reviving, hydrating face mist.   The other great thing about it is the fact it's multipurpose and can be used as a toner, primer, refresher and re-energiser. 

Face mists are also great for cooling down by the pool or on the beach and I wouldn't be without one on holiday!

Bliss Triple Oxygen - Ultimate Protection UV Moisturiser (£35.00 from www.lookfantastic.com)

You've heard me banging on about including an SPF / UV moisturiser in your daytime skincare regime and here's another great one to try.  This is light, soothing and an absolute necessity if going away.  I've also started to use this at home and it's a great base for makeup and doesn't leave a white 'cast' on the face like some SPF's can.

Smith & Cult - B-Line Eye Pen in Black (£21 from www.netaporter.com)

This is a brand I have a lot of time for! I love their nail polish, the mascara I tried from a past Mintd Box was also exceptional and this eyeliner does not budge for love or money! Therefore it's perfect for hot, sweaty nights on holiday!

The nib is very very fine, resulting in easy-peasy application.  I love this!

So those of you who are perhaps not familiar with Mintd Box they are a relatively new beauty subscription box with a but of a difference to the usual 'same old same old' beauty boxes .  They off only  premium brand products stocked in high-end retailers such as Net-a-porter, Harvey Nichols and Space NK and the products are predominately full size so you're getting a great deal

The best part about the Mintd Box is the money saving to be made.  For example, this month's box is worth £142  and you can get it for just £65 (with additional 10% off if you use the code WELCOME17) It ships to the UK, W. Europe, North America and Australia too!
