Keeping your skin in check
Keeping our skin happy so that it behaves 24/7 can be a tricky task in hand and somewhat impossible. We all know that even the best and most religious of skincare routines can be disturbed from time to time through climate, hormones, health, stresses etc but with a little helping hand from some skincare saviours, we can do our very best to keep all in check the best we can.
So with a sprinkle of facial mist, some luxury packaging and a piff, paff, poof ... Mintd Box are to the rescue once again to make sure our skin is well looked after with this months 'The Upkeep' themed box.

1. Potion London, The Beauty Formula (Full Size £25) Buy here!
Potion London are a health and wellness brand dedicated to making our life healthier. They help to promote the importance of a varied and balanced lifestyle, but still with a fun and enjoyment factor! The Beauty Formula is a daily supplement that is designed to support healthy hair, skin and nails containing a mix of 19 vitamins and minerals to help this process along. I even have my eyes on their The Probiotic, The Hyaluronic Complex & The Collagen Boost Supplements now as they sound amazing! (here)
Now I am a big fan of supplements because for me personally, without them, my health would be even more crazy than it is already. They have helped massively in certain aspects of my life so I know the positive effect that they can have on your body and lifestyle. We all strive for better hair, skin and nails or we would not invest in the amount of beauty products that we do already! This is an easy way to help your body along so in my opinion they are a must for all. It takes time obviously before you see results taking a pill form, but trust me, they will come in time.
2. Sunday Riley Mattifying Melting Water Gel Toner (Deluxe Size £18.46) Buy here!
A cooling gel to water toner that has been designed to target combination, oily, acne prone skin concerns to tighten pores for a more clear, mattified skin. Containing Bentonite Clay to mattify and reduce pores, Marshmallow, Cucumber and Green Tea to soothe and cool redness, Manuka, Black Cumin and Magnolia for antibacterial properties and balance to give a clearer, smoother shine free look to your skin.
This is my first introduction to Sunday Riley as to be honest I was so unsure where to start with their products but has been a brand that has most definitely intrigued me for some time so I was super excited to have this in my Mintd Box this month. This is the most unique toner I have ever tried and you know what, I like it. I have combination skin so this actually works great as a summer toner for me. It feels so cooling and refreshing on the skin which is great to wake your skin up in the mornings as well as soothe in the evening and once it turns to water it is so easy to massage into the skin for a fresh, matte finish. It is so green too which makes it even more fun to use! The scent of green tea and lemon is beautiful and a toner that I shall throughly enjoy using this summer. If you are prone to breakouts, redness, oily t-zone or hormonal issues then this is the toner you need to add in to your skincare regime for sure. It's not the cheapest toner granted, but indeed worth it should your skin be in need of some serious care. A great first impression of the brand that has me wanting to try more.
3. Rosalena Beauty and the Beast Facial Oil (Full Size £42)
Beauty and Beast is a unisex facial oil for all 'Princesses and Beasts' out there as all skin types can use this one. Packed full of antioxidants, these bio active ingredients are absorbed instantly into your skin leaving your skin hydrated, radiant yet shine free.
You may already know that I am a humungous fan of Rosalena as in my opinion, their facial oils are some of the very best we have available to us today. I have been using them for some time now and count Rock & Rose facial oil and Frank & Sense facial oil firm staples in my skincare routine. The Beauty & the Beast facial oil is perfect as a pre-makeup primer and a post-shave treatment and shall work as your daily multi-tasking moisturiser to give you major healthy looking skin. All the Rosalena oils tackle different skin concerns so head over to my review for all the details in full here. It is safe to say I was over the moon when I saw this in my box as the more I have in stock, the better. In fact, my husband has stolen this from my box because he is addicted too - that says a lot right there!
4. Skyn Iceland Brightening Eye Serum (Full Size at £30)
A supercharged eye primer serum designed to optimise other eye care products whilst providing targeted wrinkle repair, intense hydration and improves elasticity over time. Loaded with an infusion of 20+ powerhouse peptides, potent algae extracts, antioxidants all designed to target and treat signs of ageing. It also helps to boost collagen and relax muscles to reduce expression lines. This serum was created to be used alongside the Skin Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels should you want the maximum boosting treatment.
Skyn Iceland is a brand that I am slowly getting to know more and is one that always excites me to try. The fact that this months Mintd Box features a full sized eye treatment made my day to be honest because we all strive to find that magic eye potion that makes us look like we have slept for a week and the question I actually get messaged about the most is always to do with eye creams so the more I can try and recommend then the better I can be of help!I am a big fan of eye gels/serums as I find you get much better results as they can penetrate the skin deeper and get to work faster, they an layered under other eye products and they don't cause milia. This serum is super light in texture, feels very cooling and refreshing and you can feel the tightening effect I have to say. Obviously you can't tell instantly whether it delivers the results it claims so I shall keep you updated with that one but so far, so good. It certainly does wake your eyes up so one to most definitely consider.
5. Apa Beauty Lip Exfoliator (Full Size £16)
A lip product designed to exfoliate and moisturise your lips in the most gentle and luxurious of ways. Sugar and Sweet Almond Seed are used to exfoliate and Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Orange Peel are used to soothe and hydrate.
The one thing I truly love about Mintd Box is their ability to introduce you to new brands in which their products soon become new loves. I adore lip products and on first glance I kind of thought, "oh another lip scrub" but after using this just once, I was totally in love. This is not just another lip scrub as the formula is so luxurious and beautiful and works wonders. The scent/taste is just like chocolate orange which instantly got my vote, it's delicious. The sugar particles are just enough to get the job done and the balm feels so hydrating and comforting hence I am so happy to have been introduced to this brand. I actually googled to read more about them and discovered that they all about transforming then way people think about their smiles hence they produce oral care products that all relate to that .... so very unique! A brand that I can highly recommend checking out and would love to get to know more.
Well the April box, another huge hit I think it is safe to say! If anything, this months box is worth it for the Rosalena Facial Oil alone as the value is too good to pass on.
I have never known a subscription service please me as much as Mintd Box does as I hand on heart can say they make my month. Bringing you the latest and best in beauty is what I feel my duty to you as a reader is and Mintd Box make it so easy for me to do so.
