Valentine’s Day is almost here and the Mintd Box Love Struck edition is the perfect box of love for skincare addicts like myself. The theme of this month’s box is to have a romantic night in … for one. Now Mick is working nights on the 14th, so I will be embracing having a self-care night.
This month we are besotted, infatuated, in lust and in love with self-care. What could be more genuine than an act of pure devotion for oneself?
Aaaah the happiness when you see a candle inside your box. This is the Neom Organics Complete Bliss Candle and it’s the super deluxe size worth £16.00.
I bloody love Neom Candles but the full sized ones are a bit pricey (around £45.00), so I do get excited when they’re included in Mintd Box.
The candle is from the Neom Scent To Calm & Relax range and has been specially formulated with natural fragrances. As well as giving off a gorgeous scent, the range has a calming effect on both your mind and your body. Complete Bliss contains 17 essential oils including Lime, Black Pepper and Moroccan Blush Rose. It smells amazing and is perfect for times when you’re feeling tense and need to relax. This could not be more perfect for me at the moment.
It’s not Valentine’s Day without roses, and the Mintd Box Love Struck knows this and has included the African Botanics Rose Treatment Essence.
Again this is a super deluxe size with a value of £45.00 (the full size bottle will set you back £140.00). I’ve tried a few of their products and really like them, so I’m happy to try more from them.
The essence is a multi-functional treatment gel and once you apply it, it melts into a toning hydrating liquid. The gel is infused with Rose Flower Water and a light CO2 extract of Rosa Centifolia. It works to retain moisture, brighten, even out the skin tone, reduce redness and reduce inflammation. It also helps to detoxify cells, tighten pores, rebalance the skin’s pH levels and restore moisture levels. For a small bottle, it sure as hell packs a lot of punch.
Another brand that I’ve discovered through Mintd is ILA SPA and this month we have the Body Balm For Feeding Skin & Senses.
This is another super deluxe size with a value of £16.00 and the full size costs £51.00 so it is a good way to try them before spending that much.
With a waxy set – butter texture, this balm is musky and sultry and tackles a wide variety of skin concerns. It deals with dry skin, psoriasis, eczema and even scar tissue. I suffer from slight eczema and dry skin, so this has been lovely to use. You do have to warm and soften the balm, which can be a bit difficult, but once it has been softened, it leaves your skin feeling nourished and protected and I am noticing an improvement in my eczema.
Next up is the MagicStripes Lifting Collagen Mask. I love masks, and they do great ones, so another tick to Mintd for this.
This is full size and has a value of £39.00 and you get 5 masks inside the box. I have used several of their other masks and have loved them.
The mask contains collagen, vitamins C and E, caffeine, macadamia nut oil and water and works to lift, form and tighten the lower part of the face. Believe me, I need this as I feel like the bottom half of my face is starting to sag. As you age, you lose elasticity and collagen in the skin, so I’m always looking for ways to try and reverse this. You do have to wear the mask for about an hour, so I’d suggest doing it before you go to bed because no-one wants the door to go when you’re wearing a chin mask!
The final item in the Mintd Box Love Struck edit is the Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Hydrating Body Gel.
This is full size and is worth £37.00 and it’s another brand that I really like and enjoy using their products.
We all want our skin to look and feel silky, smooth and soft, so this is perfect. It gives your skin instant hydration and also comfort to leave your skin looking and feeling radiant and smooth. It contains Geranium, Evening Primrose Oil and Jojoba and is has a lovely and delicate floral scent to it I’ve been using this when I get out of the bath or shower and my skin is feeling lovely.
I’m really impressed with this month’s Mintd Box. Whether you’re single or spending the day with your loved one, this is a box full of products that you will absolutely love.
