KELLiLASH



How is your Summer going? Very well I hope! I am sure most of us have maybe had plenty of fun in the sun with our friends and families, or are doing just that as we speak or are planning more of it in the months to come! Mine has been glorious and beauty wise, I have been very well stocked and very organised. We have done the holiday beauty prep, sorted the luxury travel essentials now it is time for a beauty recovery regime as we need a different array of beauty items to help us recoup from all the holiday fun so this month the wonderful Mintd Box have introduced a selection of goodies that could end up being your new bff.

I don't know about you but I like to change up my routine over the summer and use more products in my routine to make sure my skin is being well taken care of under all the environmental damages as well the 'too much eating and drinking' of course, but that is what holidays are made for after all. The more products I can cram in, the better in my opinion. 

So when the August Mintd Box, themed The Recovery Edit, landed on my desk I was doing a little dance around the room because I spotted one particular product that I had been wanting to try since forever as well as a brand that has been a favourite of mine for sometime now. Hence I am delighted to tell you all about some beauty gems that really will help you to recover in the most luxurious of ways.

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare
If you are a regular reader to my blog (first of all thank you and hello!) you shall certainly know all about Mintd Box and what the whole concept is but just in case you are new then head over to a previous post which explains it all here or search Mintd where you can see all the previous boxes. 

The products all mentioned here shall certainly indulge you in a spot of luxury healing to help repair and revive your skin leaving it hydrated and radiant with some much needed TLC should you have had too much of a good thing this summer. Wherever you go and whatever you do  (name that song) you can be rest assured that your skin is left in good shape. Most important!

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare
So into my thoughts about each product that I have been testing out over the last few weeks and excitedly the ones that I think you indeed need whether you are a subscriber to Mintd Box or not ... yet. 

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Su-Man Rehydrating Toning Essence
Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Su-Man Rehydrating Toning Essence
1. Su-Man Rehydrating Toning Essence 100ml  (Full Size £38) For all skin types [here!]
A very unique reinvention of a toner with this liquid-gel essence. The gel turns into a soothing liquid hydrator upon application leaving you instantly refreshed and primed. Using a combination of hyaluronic acid, rose petal essence and green tea it aims to replenish moisture, repair and soften your skin. 

This is the product that once spotted in the box had me dancing around the room as it has been on my wishlist for some time now. Ever since I received the Su-Man Velvet Brightening Serum (March Mintd Box here) I have been hooked on the brand. I have been using the serum all summer and the difference it has made to my skin is phenomenal and once it runs out I shall be very upset indeed as I can't be without it now quite frankly. It made me realise that once again I seem to fall for brands that are of a spa background or have come from a Facialist themselves (as is Su-Man) as they know skincare better than anyone in my opinion. Having worked as a facialist myself, I get really excited when a product goes above and beyond what you expect and you see fast visible results. Being a toner addict, I always love to try new ones and this Rehydrating Essence got my attention immediately. I love the fact that it is a gel-liquid because you are working it into the skin more directly hence getting a better result. It may sound a tad fussy to use, but it really is so quick and easy to do this step. It feels absolutely incredible and smells divine. Cooling, soothing, hydrating and it has made my skin appear a lot more plump and firm. Imagine using this after a long flight or just a long day ... heavenly!  I cannot say enough good things about it other than yes sadly, it is not cheap, but when a product works this well and if it is within your budget then it's a no brainer. I can tell already that it shall last longer than an average toner so I highly recommend you try this one or an even better reason to sign up to Mintd Box if you are not already!  Having a facial with Su-Man herself is now on my dream wish list. 

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Ameliorate Smoothing Body Exfoliant
2. Ameliorate Smoothing Body Exfoliant 150ml (Full Size £17.50) [here!
A very unique Body Exfoliator that has been designed for people with very dry skin, dehydrated skin, bumpy skin, rough skin, Keratosis Pilaris and ingrown hairs ... and it will leave all skins smooth. It cleverly uses Biodegradable Microdermabrasion granules combined with Lactic Acid, to speed up your skins surface renewal. 

This does what your average body scrub can only dream of doing. I have been a huge fan of Ameliorate for some time now thanks to Mintd Box introducing me to their products. I have spoken about this product and the Transforming Body Lotion (blog post here) many a time as both of those products combined are the only products I have found to actually work in ridding my skin of Keratosis Pilaris on the arms and legs i.e. those annoying little red bumps. The range WORKS. Simple as that. You have to use them on a regular basis but the results are incredible. If you suffer with keeping the skin on your body looking smooth and hydrated then this is the range for you. The good news is that they also sell smaller sizes so you can try them out before investing in the large size because you shall see results instantly and the more days you use, the better! Ameliorate is another brand that has fast become a staple brand for me and one that I am glad to be seeing in more and more stores in the UK, as they really deserve every success for creating such a great line. A perfect addition to this August box seeing as most of us need some body TLC! 

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Cocolux Australia Candles
Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Cocolux Australia Candles
Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Cocolux Australia Candles
3. Cocolux Tonka Bean and Lime Zest Candle 100g Travel Candle (Full Size £20) [here!]   Cocolux Coconut Candles are hand poured in Australia and made from natural Coconut wax. They are 'earth friendly' meaning they are clean burning with a pure cotton wick free from Paraffin wax, Palm oil wax, oils and Soy wax. They are then infused with the most delicious fragrance combinations such as this Tonka Bean and Lime Zest version. 

If ever there was a time where I wished smell-o-vision existed, it was now. Candle lovers; (like myself) you need these candles in your life because I am obsessed to say the least! This candle is the very essence of summer. Being a huge coconut oil fan and anything that remotely smells of coconut sells me so this is my dream candle even more being so clean and natural too. First off the stunning packaging of the weighty black jar and rose gold writing makes this my ideal to start with. This is actually one of their travel candles (such a great idea!) so you can if you wanted to, take this wherever you wanted so you feel like home where ever you may be. They also have a onyx, brass and copper line .... just go ahead and drool, I did [here]. Tonka Bean and Lime Zest is just beautiful combining spice and citrus makes it a very soft, sweet scent. I am so thankful to Mintd Box for including this within the box as I feel I may have a new brand obsession. 

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Earth Tu Face Balm
Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Earth Tu Face Balm
4. Earth Tu Face Immortelle & Rose Face Balm 25g (Full Size at £60) [here!]
This face balm consists of a blend of Immortelle flowers, Rose Petals and Australian Sandalwood all in an organic creamy base. This luxurious balm offers intense hydration and intensive tissue repair. Rose petals give relief from redness and irritation as the beeswax seals in moisture and protects the skin. Sandalwood acts as a scar prevention and helps to tone the skin whilst Coconut and Raw Cocoa Butters hydrate. 

"INGREDIENTS:  Organic Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Unrefined Cocoa Butter, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Safflower Oil, Organic Sesame Oil, Organic Beeswax, Sunflower Seed Wax, Vegetable Glycerin, Rose Absolute, Organic Australian Sandalwood, Organic Immortelle, Organic Lavender, Organic Palmarosa, Non-GMO Vitamin E". 

Earth Tu Face is totally new brand to me so I did a little reading up and discovered that the brand was set up by two herbalists who basically 'grew' their own skincare line from the ground up choosing plants that heal, restore and rejuvenate skin cells, hence the name Earth Tu Face ... I like it. They believe that you should never put on your skin what you wouldn't put in your mouth hence the products are all food grade meaning you could actually eat them! So as you can tell this is a plant based, natural skincare line. I am not an 'all green beauty user' as you know but if the results are there then it's good to know that there is a good ethos behind the product. I was unsure about this product at first glance I have to admit because as much as I love balms, I prefer to use them more for cleansing as opposed to moisturising and not having dry skin I was unsure this would be for me. Boy was I surprised; it is b-eautiful. The way to use this is not to use too much as with any balm. A pea sized amount is all you need and then massage into cleansed/toned skin. It smells very aromatherapy like which I love and is most definitely very hydrating. The texture is in fact really creamy and not as hard as it looks. It's not at all greasy nor heavy and absorbs very easily into your skin leaving it feeling soft and smooth. For me, this shall be perfect for the cooler months or as a night treatment as I love how hydrated it left my skin feeling. Dry/Sensitive skins, this is for you, you'll love it!
Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Sjal Deep Pore Cleanser
Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare. Sjal Deep Pore Cleanser
5. Sjal Skincare Deep Pore Cleanser 30ml (Deluxe Size £9.40) [here!]
A  luxurious, non-foaming gel cream cleanser designed for all skin types and aimed to help hydrate, calm, soothe, detoxify, minimise pores and brighten the skin. Ingredients such as Silver and Gold Colloidal help to calm as they are known for their anti-bacterial benefits. African Whitewood Extract helps to control excess oils to reduce pore size. Pearl extract helps to detox, oxygenate and brighten the skin. Fig leaf extract helps to fight moisture loss and Rice Bran and Vitamin E help to soften and soothe. 

Again this a brand that is new to me but having looked at their website it does indeed look very high tech and luxurious. Obviously with a travel size like this you sadly don't get that feel but you do get the chance to try it before making the investment seeing as the full size is £47 plus travel sized cleansers are so handy! Sjal was founded by Mother and Daughter Karen and Kristin Petrovich, who both look incredible I have to say! (website here). The brand is all about anti-ageing skincare that bridges elements of ancient eastern medicines with the latest in biotechnology infused with the energy through precious minerals and gemstones. I love this mother and daughter connection and I am a big believer in crystal healing powers so this certainly intrigues me more. I love cleansers and this  one was .... ok. Extremely gentle and it does indeed leave your skin feeling very fresh, clean and brighter looking but in all honesty just nothing mind blowing for me. I didn't see a difference in my pores but think it needs longer use perhaps. I personally prefer an oil or balm cleanser which is maybe why this didn't wow me but if you love gel cleansers then you could love this one. The brand definitely intrigues me to want to try more, hence sizes such as this are a god send! 

Mintd Box, August, Post Holiday Recovery Edit - Skincare
I can safely say that once again Mintd Box have come to the rescue with these post holiday TLC steps. As you can maybe guess for me the stars of the show are without a doubt Su-Man Rehydrating Essence, Ameliorate and Cocolux Australia. All products I recommend you look into and maybe try out for yourself and another good reason why I can recommend signing up to Mintd Box if you aren't already because the savings are incredible for the standard of brands that you receive every month. 

As you know I am such a genuine fan of Mintd Box and am never swayed in my opinions that I give. For me, they just get it right with being so on the ball with the brands that they work with plus they make the task of 'reviewing' an absolute joy for me as a blogger.  

Just  to remind you! 
You can sign up to Mintd Box here with free delivery in the UK and free delivery on your first box using code WELCOME17. Available Worldwide and ships to UK, W Europe, North America and Australia! Don't forget, any new subscribers who purchase a 3 or 6 month plan shall receive the amazing newly launched Argentum Illuminating Bar worth a whopping £104 (from Net a Porter)!

For those of you who followed my Instagram Stories you will have seen some of my Summer adventures #YachtLife .... hence all these products are being put to good use! (a few holliday snaps below ☀️).




Any products caught your eye? 
What is your Post Holiday must have!




Caudalie have gone from strength to strength over the past years with their products becoming a staple within most of our skincare routines. Being a French brand and living in the South of France, it really takes centre stage here. I was first introduced to Caudalie when I was working for Space NK in London some years ago now and ever since then, their Beauty Elixir has been in my stocks ever since because it's simply amazing, hence why it is one if their bestsellers.  

In case you aren't familiar with them, Caudalie believe in a greener planet and more committed cosmetics. They create skincare for those who want effectiveness and naturalness without having to put one aside as well as glamour and ecology. They are known for grapes as they use vine and grape extracts from their vineyards in Bordeaux and Burgandy to become green active ingredients that work within our skin. I mean look at all the wine that the French drink and they still look so youthful? There is a lot to be said about those grapevines.

Caudalie is part of the 1% for the Planet movement and donates 1% of it's global sales to NPO's that work to protect the environment. By 2020, 6 million trees will be planted around the world. So as you can see they sure are a committed brand that strive to bring us the best in high tech, natural beauty. 
Caudalie VineActiv Skincare 
A few months ago Caudalie launched a brand NEW skincare line called Vine[Activ] which caused a lot of interest in the beauty world. I was excitedly sent the full line to try to let you all know my thoughts about it. I knew straight away that there was a very strong chance I was indeed going to love it being the fan that I already am. I can reveal that this line is definitely a winning launch with some real key players within it. 

Vine[Activ] is a NEW anti-wrinkle and glow activating regime that fights against the effects of hectic lifestyles and corrects initial signs of ageing. A perfect line for many of us, yes?

If smooth, glowing, healthy skin is what you are wanting (who doesn't?!) then read on .... 

Caudalie VineActiv Skincare 
Now I get sent a lot of skincare so to make it here onto the blog, it really needs to impress me and I am pretty fussy I won't lie. I have high standards let's say! So I have been using this new line over the last few months by gradually adding each product into my daily routine so I can see the effects of each one then used all together so I can give you my honest opinions about them all, as always. 

There are four products in the line; a Self-Defence Serum, a 3-in-1 Moisturiser, an Eye & Lip Cream and The Detox Night Oil. PLUS the whole line is suitable for ALL skin types. 

One important point that strikes me initially is that the products are all extremely affordable ranging from £28 - £36 and for a high-end, anti-wrinkle range this is very good news. 

Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Glow Activating Serum
Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Glow Activating Serum
Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Glow Activating Serum
STEP 1 - Caudalie VineActiv Glow Activating Anti-Wrinkle Serum 30ml, £36 [Buy here!]
A concentrated serum packed with anti-oxidant polyphenols which helps to protect the skin from everyday aggressors like stress, pollution etc, visibly smoothing initial signs of wrinkles and giving your skin a healthy glow. The key ingredients are Hyaluronic Acid to add moisture and plumpness, Polyphenols and Vitamin C.

I am a serum addict. I have been trained that way over my years working in skincare as a facialist as I have seen the fast acting results that they deliver mainly because they are lighter than a moisturiser so your targeted serums can penetrate deeper and faster to give you instant results that last long term. This milky serum is very light and watery in texture which means that it melts into your skin instantly leaving no stickiness or heaviness. This serum is simply beautiful. My skin looked so healthy and bright just by adding this into my regime and I swear it has helped to fade a few fine lines. It is one of those serums that I would recommend to everyone that needs some kind of skin boost and for those who feel they need to safeguard against future ageing to maintain a youthful looking skin. You can use this day and night to whatever suits your routine. I cannot believe that this is only £36 as serums in particular can cost the earth so this is a serum to invest in. It contains the highest concentration of anti-oxidants within the whole range so keep that in mind should you want to pick just one item from the collection to try. 

Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, 3-in-1 Glow Boosting Moisturiser
Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, 3-in-1 Glow Boosting Moisturiser
STEP 2 - Caudalie VineActiv 3-in-1 Glow Boosting Moisturiser 40ml, £32 [Buy here!]
A lightweight yet highly moisturising cream that makes the perfect daily skincare staple. It has been developed to limit the amount of pollutant particles deposited onto the skin, helping to smooth wrinkles and give a youthful glow. The key ingredients are Hyaluronic AcidPolyphenols and Vitamin C.

This has such a beautiful texture that looks velvety rich but feels light and airy on the skin especially in warmer climates. It's a perfect daily summer moisturiser for most skin types as it layers really well with all other products yet gives you moisture and a radiant glow. In fact, I actually wear less make-up with this as it makes your skin look so radiant and healthy. When your skin is having a hormonal tantrum this is great one to use because it's light enough to not break you out yet the radiant glow it gives, makes your skin feel and look brighter. Dry skins may find that this is not enough so I would recommend maybe layering this one or just go with the Dry Oil or Serum instead. Being mid 30's with a normal/combination skin type this has definitely suited my skin well and again, a lovely daily moisturiser for the summer months especially.

Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Energising and Smoothing Eye Cream
STEP 3 - Caudalie VineActiv Energising and Smoothing Eye & Lip Cream 15ml, £27.50 [Buy here!]
A gentle, comforting cream that visibly helps with dark circles and keeps the eye and lip contours smooth. The key ingredients are Polyphenols, Vitamin C and Liquorice to decongest. 

Eye creams are the one skincare product we all hold high hopes for as it's the one area that can really age you if not looked after. They are also one of my favourite skincare items to try. This eye cream is super lightweight like the rest of the line and makes your eyes feels very refreshed and hydrated. It absorbs very quickly and is a great lip treatment as that can be one area that we are quick to neglect. I actually took it away on holiday with me and put it to the test as the travel friendly tube made this ideal and hydration and energising is just what I thought I would need in the summer heat. I felt this did just that, hydrated and brightened up my whole eye area. I don't feel it helped my dark circles but it definitely did smooth making them look less lined and less tired as well as safe guarding them against further signs of ageing. So if this is what you need, then it will be a perfect eye cream for you to try but if darkness and puffiness is your issue, then this won't be the cream for you. You could however layer this over the top of another eye treatment (always lightest texture first) therefore getting the best of both. I am still continuing to use this in my daily routine as I really do enjoy using it!

Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Overnight Detox Oil 
Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Overnight Detox Oil 
Caudalie VineActiv Skincare, Overnight Detox Oil 
STEP 4 - Caudalie VineActiv Overnight Detox Oil 30ml, £30 [Buy here!]
A dry oil ideal for skin which is exposed to stress, pollution, UV rays and other free radical damage. The oil helps to detoxify and smooth the skin to refresh your complexion. Infused with anti-oxidant Grape-seed, regenerating Rose Hip, purifying Neroli, smoothing Lavender and detoxifying Carrot Oils, this is 100% plant based and promotes cell renewal and eliminates toxins. 

This oil is magical and by far one of my favourite items from the whole collection as this really does work to help renew, repair and protect your skin as you sleep. You already know that I am a huge face oil fan and this is what excited me the most and thankfully it went above and beyond my expectations. The scent is beautiful, the texture is perfect as non greasy or heavy, absorbs very quickly and did break my skin out as we tend to all associate the word 'detox' with breakout but you can rest assured this oil shall just give you radiant, soft skin that glows. I am always concerned about what damage the environment is doing to my skin so the fact I can slather my skin in anti-oxidants makes me feel a lot more protected. This really shall work for all skin types and drier skins could even layer this up with the serum and moisturiser should you want or need to. Oilier skins can just used them all as separates so it really is very suited to everyone. For me this is a real skincare star player. 

Caudalie VineActiv Skincare,
In short, I am very impressed with the entire line. The light textures, the aromatic scents and affordable price tags all make this a collection that would suit many. All products absorb easily into the skin, are easy to use, leave your skin hydrated for hours, give you a radiant glow with amazing anti-oxidant protection to help safe guard against premature wrinkles. All products layer perfectly together so you can use them in a way that best suits you. I did indeed notice a clear difference in my skin and shall continue to use them in my routine. The packaging is also very travel friendly which is a huge bonus in my eyes. 

Another great thing about the range is that you can integrate each of the products into your routine as individuals so if serums are your thing, you can easily add it into your daily regime. If you were looking into trying one or two items then the two must haves in my opinion would certainly be the Overnight Detox Oil and Serum as like I said the serum holds the highest concentration of anti-oxidants within the whole range so definitely a great skin investment. Then if you enjoy, maybe add in the Moisturiser as you shall not be disappointed. 


Have you tried this range? Or are you thinking about it? 
I would love to know what you think!












It would not be summer without a Cocktail themed Limited Edition Body Product from the Body Shop now, would it? As you know from a recent post (here), The Body Shop are a brand that has grown up with many of us and I think we have all tried a body butter or Shower Gel and we all have our favourite scent. Mine was the Almond line until they discontinued it but the new Almond and Honey line has kind of got me all in love. One thing I love about The Body Shop is how amazing all the Limited Editions smell and always just exactly like the name. 

This Summer the ever so popular Virgin Mojitio and Piñita Colada ranges are back! I was kindly sent two mini kits that can accompany me on my travels or just in my shower so I can share my love for these yummy tasting scents with you too. I am indeed a fan of a cocktail (or three) so if I can get one for my shower, then I am sold. I am just waiting for the Margarita version (please Body Shop!) seeing as that is my no1 drink of choice. 

I feel you do need the real thing in hand as you use these body products because the moment you smell these, you shall want to drink them. They are seriously that good. 

The Body Shop, Virgin Mojito  and Piñita colada
Onto the first, Virgin Mojito ....

I LOVE this scent as it really wakes you up in the best of ways and I am a massive fan of The Body Shop's body butters as they are so hydrating yet not greasy or sticky at all. You can use them as an after sun and smell amazing at the same time. 

The Body Shop, Pina Colada
• Piñita Colada Mini Gift Set, £10 Buy here!
If you are more of a Tropical fan then you won't be able to resist this scent of Pineapple Coconut that smells exactly like a Pina Colada. Containing a mini Shower Gel and Body Butter this really is the cutest little set and I have to say the shower gel is amazing and is in my shower as we speak. I am already going to get a back up of this one as it honestly smells so incredible. I am in love with this one hence you must go and have a sniff!! 

The Body Shop, Pina Colada




















A great thing about these body products is that they usually go into a sale or promotion so they really are worth looking out for or go and have a sniff at least ... they are just too good to pass up.  

Another two exciting launches that I thought were worth a quick mention are the re-launch of their famous Vitamin E Cream and Mattifying Make-up Gel 
The Body Shop, Vitamin E Cream
The Body Shop, Vitamin E Cream
The Body Shop, Vitamin E Cream
Limited Edition Vitamin E Moisture Cream, £13 Buy here! (while stocks last 50ml/100ml) 
Designed by British Fashion Designer Eley Kishimoto, the best selling Vitamin E Cream facial moisturiser has had a stylish makeover. Lightweight, absorbs very easily into skin to protect and lock in moisture for all day hydration. Formulated with Vitamin E, 100% Hyaluronic Acid and Wheatgerm Oil helps with dryness and is suitable for all skins. How cute is this design?! I love it. I have grown up with this cult classic product as I think the Vitamin E Moisturisers and the matching Eye Cream were one of my first ever skincare buys as a teenager hence when I smell it, it holds many memories. I for one am a big fan of the range as its super affordable yet does a really good job. 

The Body Shop, Instamatte 
 NEW InstaMatte, £12 100% Vegan, Buy here! 
A make-up mattifying gel that is the quickest way to get rid of any shine on make-up free skin, on T-zones and foundation. This very handy make-up gem literally helps you with any unwanted shine situation for all skins. You can even use it on your lips to make glossy lipsticks matte or as an eyeshadow base! 

I love the name for a start as we all know we are Insta-obsessives. I have tried products such as this before but this one really is a good one. Highly recommend as being a shiny T-zone gal myself, this is a beauty gem for the summer. It really is a summer make-up bag essential. 

The Body Shop, Piñita Colada Collection
It is safe to agree that The Body Shop have summer covered. Fabulous summer launches that are all so affordable and yet so gorgeous so there is no need to feel any guilt when shopping. 

Have you tried any?
Keep up the good work Body Shop 👍
