I find myself at the window watching, tapping my foot in anticipation for the gate to open, looking longingly like a puppy waiting for its owner to come home! Well, that's a big fat lie! It's that time of the month and I'm waiting on Mr Postman, to deliver this month's MINTD Box, if he thinks he has got to 'be aware of the dog' there is nothing like a savage Mumma waiting to bite his hand off for some luxury beauty goodies!

Postman departed, hand safely intact, anxiety levels dropped I can now tear open the latest MINTD Box.

The Upkeep, this is what MINTD are helping us to maintain, the Upkeep of our skin and body, right from the inside out. Helping us harness our beauty with 5 luxurious products.

So for the past 3 weeks, that's how long I've been using all of the products so that I can give you an honest review have been tried and tested and I am eager to let you know how I got on.

I have been taking Potion London, The Beauty Formula, supplements to promote healthy hair, skin and nails every day and 1 a day after I have had lunch for 21 days now. These little supplement tablets are bursting with 19 vitamins and minerals all to help with hair growth, clear skin and strong nails. For those that have had a child will know that after giving birth and for those who were able, but now no longer breastfeed, your hair breaks, your body loses all those nutrients, your skin is looking a little lacklustre and those glorious long nails that grew wonderfully strong throughout pregnancy now brake, just looking at them. My daughter who is now, dare I say it 3 in a few weeks, I still find that I am suffering from the aftermath of pregnancy, but honestly since taking these little beauts, my hair, skin and nails are are a little longer, clearer and stronger. You get 60 tablets in the bottle and is reasonably priced at £25.00, not bad for a 2 month supply.

I have only recently heard of these Lip Loofas and I've been wondering what all the hype is about. So when I found APA Beauty Lip Loofah, in this months Upkeep box I was eager to give it a go. This little tub I carry everywhere and I use daily. I dab a small amount onto my lips and gently massage in, as soon as it hits you, you get a blossoming hit of the orange peel, the smell is truly divine, it is such a shame that you have to rinse it off, but you can't have the scrub derived from sugar and sweet almond seeds on your lips all day, but it is fine, because your lips and honestly left smoother, clearer of all dead skin that sits on you lips, but most importantly of all, your lips are left feeling as smooth as a babies bottom and highly moisturised thanks to it bursting with jojoba oil and shea butter, if on the move I always carry wipes with me so wherever I am always pout ready. It costs £16.00 and can be purchased from Net-A-Porter and considering I have been using it daily for 21 days, I still have a good, say 10 days - 14 days of usage.

Now I have been dying to get my hands on some Sunday Riley products, so was chuffed I didn't bite off Mr Postmans hand and did not get done for abuse or cannibalism, as tucked away in my MINTD Box their lye Sunday Riley's, Martian Mattifying Melting Water Gel Toner. After my face was cleansed, I squeezed a little on the gel toner into my hand and gently massaged into my face (dry skin) and the fresh aromatic smell, of the Manuka, cucumber and the sweetness from the marshmallow, leaves you feeling uplifted, cooler. This is ideal for those, who have oily, combination and acne-prone skin and it is great for those like me who suffer from redness and sensitive skin. In your MINTD Box, you will find a deluxe size priced at £18.46 from Space NK or you can grab a full size at £48.00.

Skyn Iceland's, Brightening Eye Serum, I am just going to jump in and say it,! I LOVE IT, it truly makes me happy. I use it day and night and boy do you feel the effect immediately and you can see your eyes brightening and feel them tightening. This super lightweight gel, is packed with Artic Peptides and once you have gently patted this daily treatment under the eye area with your fingertips, you feel those little magical peptides working and it is super fast absorbing, as you instantly feel as if it is freezing those wrinkles out (feels that way too) and tightening the eye area thanks to the advanced cosmetic drone peptides bursting in this full sized bottle costing £30.00 and if you pop into your local Marks and Spencers, you will find it in the beauty department.

Rosalena, what can I say. I love the ladies from this company and I recently meet one of the lovelies Helena from the brand and can you believe we live roads apart, totally small world. I love their products and I was grinning like Cheshire cat when I spotted their Beauty & The Beast Face Oil was inside this months box. This is great for both men and women, so father's day is not too far off, you can bag them this super loaded antioxidant face oil, suitable for all skin types. The bio-active ingredients are instantly absorbed in your face and neck, do not forget your décolletage too and filled with vitamins, will leave your face super hydrated and moisturised, so much so that during these spring months or on hotter days, I find myself not having to apply moisturiser. You can snap this up from the Rosalena website at £42.00.

If you haven't yet, I certainly would recommend subscribing to MINTD Box here, which you can snap it up for £65.00a massive saving of £76.46 so you can treat yourself to the new top or shoes you have been up eyeing up and it is FREE Delivery for those in the UK and those who are not, I have a FREE delivery code on your first box with code WELCOME17.
