They tried to make me go to rehab … Mintd Box Skin Rehab that is, and I went willingly. The change in weather has played havoc with my skin, so rehab is definitely needed.
We all know that I adore this beauty box, and each month they deliver amazing products. For your £70.00 monthly subscription, you get £153.00 worth of products this month and they’re all lovely.
Sun, sea and sand. Whether at home or abroad, our skin has been exposed and made vulnerable to the elements. Travel, bright early mornings, late nights illuminated by sunset, the endless socials and bottomless cocktails have take a toll on our pockets and our skin.
So this month we are taking you to rehab! Relax, rejuvenate and restore skin with replenishing ingredients. We urge you to bask in honey and maintain that golden glow, your barely there face and that new found care-free aura. You deserve it!
FARMACY SKINCARE HONEY DROP LIGHT MOISTURISER – £42.00
Let’s kick this Mintd Box Skin Rehab off with my favourite product of the month. I didn’t need a new moisturiser and I was perfectly happy with the ones I was using, but then I started using this and it can never not be in my skincare collection. It is so lovely to use and leaves your skin feeling amazing.
My skin tends to be on the dry side and for the past couple of weeks, basically since the weather went a bit bonkers and forgot it was summer, it has been really dry. This moisturiser has been the answer to my prayers. With a gel-cream texture, it is so lightweight yet still really moisturising. I love this as I don’t always want to put rich and heavy creams on my face, so this has been ideal.
It contains a triple hyaluronic acid complex and 6 natural superfoods, including Echinacea GreenEnvy honey which is antioxidant-rich, and it does wonders for your skin. I’ve noticed that my complexion has been looking and feeling more plumped, hydrated and smooth. I’d wanted to try Farmacy for a while and after using this, I definitely want to try more.
MACIGSTRIPES WAKE ME UP COLLAGEN EYE PATCHES – £28.00
I don’t know about you, but I look permanently shattered even on the rare nights where I’ve had a good sleep. I always look like I’ve had some really heavy nights out even when I haven’t and it drives me slightly mad, so anything that tackles this makes me very happy.
These are concentrated cooling eye patches that will deal with under-eye wrinkles, bags and dark circles. Because they are cooling, they help to lessen any swelling and puffiness and work to reduce the appearance of dark circles. Again, these contain hyaluronic acid (which I love), and they work straight away to reduce these bug bears of mine as well as adding an extra level of moisture, and increasing collagen levels to help the skin’s elasticity.
You keep them on under your eyes for 20 – 30 minutes and I like to use that time to read a book and try switch off from technology. When you remove the patches, there’ll be some remaining essence under your eyes – don’t wipe this off. Tap it gently (and I mean gently as your under eye area is so delicate) into the skin.
OMOROVICZA THERMAL CLEANSING BALM – £52.00
I’m already a huge fan of this cleansing balm and have been using it for months off and on (I have a lot of skincare and I like to mix it up), so I was more than happy to receive a new jar. Omorvicza are an amazing brand and I love it whenever Mintd Box include their products.
Cleansing balms are always a good option for me as my skin responds really well to them, and this one is no exception. At first it feels a little bit odd rubbing a black balm across your face, but it soon makes your face feel nice and warm and it is lovely to use. It contains Hungarian Moor Mud which is rich in calcium, magnesium carbonate, humid acid and fulvic acid. It also contains sweet almond oil, which is rich in vitamin E to help replenish the skin. Your skin is left feeling extremely nourished and purified and your makeup and any impurities just melt away.
You only need to use a small amount to remove the dirt of the day and make sure to use a circular motion in order to stimulate the circulation. If you’ve never tried a cleansing balm before then this is a great one to start with.
ILA SPA BATH SALTS FOR CLEANSING – £31.00 (SUPER DELUXE SIZE)
Last but not least in the Mintd Box Skin Rehab box are these gorgeous bath salts. I love bath time, so bath products make me happy … really happy. If you’ve been feeling stressed then these are ideal for you.
Ancient Himalayan salts infuse the body with 84 essential trace elements and minerals to strengthen your aura and wash away the negative ions from computers and phones. I spend all day in front of a computer or my phone, so these are perfect for me. I’ve been feeling quite run down and stressed recently and I didn’t think bath salts could really help with that … I was wrong. After using these just once, I had the best night’s sleep I’ve had in months. After using them twice, I was feeling calmer and more scented. They’re like a miracle.
As well as leaving you feeling a lot more relaxed, they also cleanse the body and leave it feeling nice and soft. In an age where our lives are dominated by technology, these are a must have.
