KELLiLASH


This is a very exciting reveal as this month marks Mintd Box's 1st Birthday and in that honour they are helping us to unleash our inner glow goddess just in time for the holidays. We are all after some glow, let's face it. 

I cannot believe that I have actually been reviewing Mintd Box now for a whole year but in that time I personally have to thank them for introducing me to so many amazing brands that have become staples to my beauty regime and maybe to yours too having had the chance to be able to share them all with you. I review a lot as a beauty blogger but I have to say that a highlight of my month is Mintd Box as the contents never fail to excite me. After one year they are still as unique as ever and stand tall above their competoriors to bring new beauty content to us every month. 

If you don't know about Mintd Box then please do head to a previous post here or search 'Mintd Box' where you can read about them in more detail. If you are looking for skincare products to give you that gorgeous glowing skin from head to toe then you shall definitely want to read on about some beauty gems right here ....

Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit 
Mintd Box have really offered up something special this month with some products that have been on my very own wish list for some time, especially this first reveal (eeeek!) .... 

Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit , OSkia Get Up and Glow serum 
Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit , OSkia Get Up and Glow serum 
Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit , OSkia Get Up and Glow serum 
1. OSKIA Skincare Get Up & Glow Serum (Full Size £66) Buy here!
A lightweight serum designed to energise and brighten by boosting your skin's oxygen intake to speed up cell renewal and improve efficiency. This has long term and instant results, with Milk Peptides and light reflecting particles to instantly lift and brighten whilst the signature ingredients such as Swiss Alps Stem Cells boost Collagen and fight free radicals to improve the texture of your skin. 

I was super excited beyond words to receive this as OSKIA is a brand of which I am a big fan of. I have recently fallen in love with their cult, Renaissance Gel Cleanser and Renaissance Mask so I knew it was possible that I was going to love this one. Turns out I do, massively! Oh my, this serum is a total dream as the moment I saw the pearlescent sheen that the serum has to it, I knew I wanted it on my face. I am a massive serum fan and this gel-serum absorbs beautifully into the skin with only a little needed as a little goes a long way. I obviously haven't used it long enough to tell you any long term results but first impressions are first class. My skin looks brighter and healthier after using this and the radiance it gives is divine. Used under makeup, it works so well as a make-up primer to help give your skin that natural glow and apparently you can also apply it over make-up to add a boost to your complexion. If you are looking for a good anti-ageing serum that shall add radiance to your skin then this is one for youThis is going to be a summer staple in my skincare routine that I know already know. I am in total love. Trust me, you need this one. 

Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit, Anne Semonin Eye Cubes
Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit, Anne Semonin Eye Cubes
2. Anne Semonin Express Eye Ice Cubes (Full Size £43) Buy here!
A very unique but brilliant concept with these Botanically rich cooling eye cubes, designed to treat dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles in one. Containing a blend of Marine Spring Water, Hesperidin, Hyaluronic Acid, Wild Indigo, Ginkgo Biloba and Gourd Extract all are used to help firm, hydrate and brighten. The cubes must be stored in the freezer for a minimum of 3 hours before use then turned out of the mould, wrapped up in the gauze provided then applied to the eye for as long as needed. You can even sweep them over your eyes and face before a night out to perk up your skin. 

This was another item that was on my own personal wishlist as this is so unique and I have never tried anything else quite like them. I am a big Anne Semonin fan as it was in fact Mintd Box that introduced me to the brand initially and now I cannot live without their Exfoliating Mask in my life, it works wonders for my skin. These cubes are in fact, amazing! Yes maybe a little fiddly for some I know, but if like me you like little beauty tasks then you shall love them. They feel incredible on your eyes, so cooling and soothing and make a great little pamper session. I wear contact lenses and use eye drops daily and working on a computer, being out in the sun etc all take its toll on my eyes so these are a god send. After using these cubes my eyes looked fresher and brighter and less tired. I often use eye patches if I have time in the morning to brighten up my skin before I do my make-up so these are a great addition to my collection. They would make a great gift as it's not really something you buy yourself even though you want to try them, hence I am so glad that they were part of Mintd Box and definitely the best way to try them for yourself.

Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit, Supermood Youth Glow Mask
3. Supermood YouthGLo Baby Face Mask (Full Size £39) Buy here!
Supermood are a Finnish Skincare brand that use high quality, eco-friendly ingredients to create natural cosmetics. YouthGlo Baby Face Mask is designed to uplift tired skin and bring back that lost youthful glow. Vitamin A and C as well as Rosehip Oil give skin radiance, smooth fine lines and repair scars. Moth Bean is also a natural alternative to Retinol which helps repair sun damaged skin and signs of ageing. Green Tea, Ginkgo Biloba contain antioxidants that help prevent further damage and help to soothe and reduce redness. 

Any product that promises to make skin 'glow like a baby' has my attention. A totally new brand to me but I love a face mask so I was very keen to try it. First of all I have to say, I am not a fan of the scent. Scents are such a personal thing that can affect how you feel about a product but I try to never let that cloud my judgement as the mask itself was actually really nice. It has a rich creamy texture and my skin seemed to drink this in as what was a thick layer of mask, seemed to disappear into my skin immediately, but it did indeed feel softer once I removed it. This isn't my favourite of face masks but I think if you use it after the peel to which it's designed for then you would get a better result as it then becomes very nourishing. I shall maybe try it again after a peel and report back. 

Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit, Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Oil
4. Omorovicza Gold Shimmer Body Oil, £52, 100ml (Super Deluxe £15) Buy here!
A golden shimmer oil for hair and body that leaves skin smooth and glowing with it's subtle gold particles. Awarded "Best Skin Glossing Oil' by Harpers Baazar, the key benefits include a powerful anti-immflamatory, the healing power of Calendula Oil, softens skin with Apricot Kernel and Vitamin A, boosts collagen production, leaves skin firmer and more supple ... to name a few. Not just an average body oil hey?! Suitable for Sensitive, Dry, Oily and Combination/Normal skins. 

I am very fussy when it comes to body oils as I hate the feel of being greasy and have a very few select favourites that I stick to so I am always reluctant to try new ones but the scent of ylang ylang as I opened it up got my attention. The scent is divine. Coconut, ylang yang, apricot, calendula ... my kind of body scent, plus the oil itself is just beautiful and so luxurious. This really does absorb well into the skin which impressed me more than I thought. The gold shimmer is very subtle so you shall naturally glow which is personally what I want from an oil. I don't like to use oils on my hair so for me this is body only and a great one for summer nights when you want to look sexy and sun kissed in a nice dress. This in full size is quite the splurge so having this deluxe size is a great addition to the box as I don't think I would invest in the large size personally. But I would like to try more from the brand as this is my first product that I have tried from them and I love it.

Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit, Quinteassentials White Elixir Tea
Mintd Box, July, The Glow Edit, Quinteassentials White Elixir Tea
5. Quinteassentials White Elixir (Super Deluxe £8) Buy here!
Quinteassentials (don't you just love that name!) have made Tea into an art form. London Tea Designer, Bernadine Tay, uses her scientific knowledge to create unique blends and has won 7 Great Taste Awards out of her 13 blends and is now tea judge. That is so a job that I want! White Elixir is a premium white tea rich in anti-oxidants and charged with Superfood Spriralina Algae to promote a healthy complexion and inner glow. The tea has notes of Jasmine and can be served hot or cold over ice. The blends help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, promote weight loss and encourage healthy hair, skin and nail growth. Tea really does hold some serious power, especially this 'beautea'.

I am British, so of course I am a massive tea fan. I am a strong believer in Tea being good for the inside and the outside as it really can contribute to good skin, hence why I am such a big tea drinker and not a coffee one. I was crazy excited to find this inside the box because what is it with us Brits and Tea? It really is just a thing. I am proof of that lol. With this tea you have little infusing pouches and stirrers so you can infuse resting over a cup or enjoy it as a cold iced tea in the summer months. I love the fact that you have a QR code to scan which not only plays you a music track but acts as your tea timer so you get the perfect brew time. It is details like that which make me love them. So simple yet so well thought out, I truly am obsessed. This flavour tea, is my kind of tea. I don't do fruity as I my tea loves are Assam, Jasmine, Green, Mint, Earl Grey etc so this is my ideal. I am so happy to have discovered this brand thanks to Mintd Box once again. Fellow tea lovers, you must try!

Here is to another amazing, beauty filled year!
What is your favourite item from this month's box?






When Charlotte Tilbury announced the launch of some brand new products to her collection, I for one was very excited seeing as she is of my favourite make-up brands. I was a tad late on getting my hands on these but never the less, they have been highly requested for review as many of you are still contemplating these items so hopefully I can shed some light on both and help you out. 

Charlotte has introduced #GLOWMO, two new products guaranteed to make us all glow in an instant this summer. The Beauty Glow 'Instant Look in a Palette' and the Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask. So let me tell you more.

First up, the Beauty Glow Palette ....

• Instant Look in a Palette, in Beauty Glow £49 (Limited Edition) link here!
This is an all in one makeup palette for face, eyes and cheeks designed to help you get ready in 5 minutes as it has all you need to get a healthy, glowing look. The Beauty Glow Edition contains rose-gold and bronze tones that really will flatter everyone. 

There have been two other previous editions, the Natural Beauty and Seductive Beauty but I have to say I think this is the nicest version by far as it is so versatile. For me, I really wanted one of these palettes as I travel quite a bit and any help I can get with minimising space in my case, means I am sold but the Natural Beauty was a little too light and the Seductive Beauty was a little to cool for my liking where as this one is spot on, perfect. Basically the three bears syndrome! This version was inspired by the make-up that Charlotte did for Kate Moss and Poppy Delevigne on their wedding days so safe to say this is most definitely a very special palette and ideal for that bronzed, radiant make-up look that suits any occasion.

The palette is numbered to help guide you with the order in which you need apply them so whether you are a make-up pro or just a beginner, it really is easy to use. 

1. Eye Brighten
a brightening eyeshadow in a colour correcting champagne pink to prime the eyes.

2. Eye Enhance
a shimmering, beautiful rose gold/copper shade that adds a natural glow. 

3. Eye Smoke
a matte chocolate brown shade with a lot of pigment to softly define the eyes and build up a smoky eye look.

4. Face Bronzer
designed to define cheekbones, jawline and nose in this natural shadow  shade. This has a slight hint of a little shimmer but does apply matte. 

5. Cheek Swish
a warm dusky rose that gives a healthy glow and warmth to the cheeks. It does look very dark but with a light hand and careful blending, it is gorgeous. 

6. Cheek Pop
a pretty pink with a little shimmer to lift the complexion, giving a natural glow.

7. Face Highlighter
a beautiful creamy white highlighter. 

This palette would look beautiful with Pillow Talk and Bitch Perfect Lipstick. You can see above swatches on my skin tone, which they compliment beautifully.

The formula of Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadows and powders are simply gorgeous as they are always highly pigmented, long wearing and they look truly stunning in photographs so one to keep in mind should you be looking for good make-up products for your wedding day. 

Safe to say this palette has stolen my heart. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. It is even better in real life (trust me!) and I am so glad that I have it in my collection. It really is the perfect palette for any occasion and makes my skin look so radiant and glowing with all the shades that I always tend to gravitate to. I couldn't live a day without my holy grail Filmstar Bronze and Glow so this is a great travel version of that and more! I already know this is going to be a travel staple, daily staple ...... just an everything staple quite frankly! It is limited edition so my advice easily is to go snap this up, although hopefully it shall become permanent. It shall be one of the best make-up purchases you make.

On to the second launch that is a skincare product ....

Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask, 50ml, £38 link here!
A Face Mask that hydrates and nourishes the skin whilst adding a natural streak-free tan so you wake up to sun kissed, glowy skin! Who doesn't want that?! The formula is enriched with skin friendly ingredients like blackcurrant seed oil to nourish, Oat Kernel to reduce redness and soothe your skin whilst protecting and hydrating. It has been designed to give you a 'natural' looking tan of which you can build up over three nights. 

This product is genius. I LOVE it!
This really does work to give you not heavily tanned skin but naturally 'sun-kissed skin'. I used this over two nights on clean skin after cleansing. I did use my serum before hand on the second night which made no difference to the result at all. As a skincare product it feels so lovely on the skin, really hydrating and soothing yet not tacky or heavy at all. Unlike other brands that I have used in the past, this has no tan scent to it all so you can rest assured you won't smell like biscuits and in fact it smells gorgeous.  I do also like the Clarins Booster drops that give a similar effect (review here) but this really is the perfect product for when you want a little hassle free pamper session. I will say, if your skin has a tendency to break out easily then I would just use it for one night and leave it a few days before using again as it is a face mask and too much shall overload the skin, so once/twice a week is enough. It is ideal to use all year round but I shall certainly be using this over the summer seeing as I don't tan my face (no ageing wanted here!) so I am happy to fake it in the most natural, non orange of ways thanks to Charlotte. 

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Glow, Beauty Glow Instant look in a palette, Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask
My only dislike was not to do with the product itself but the packaging. I am guessing there was a last minute name change as there is a sticker over the 'old name' with the 'new' product name on the sticker which I thought was a little unprofessional being such a luxury brand but that really doesn't effect the product itself and thankfully being as it is amazing it's fairly unimportant but a point I felt I needed to share. 

Let's face it, we all feel better when we have a little colour to our face and body so if you are fair skinned or you don't tan your face or you just need a pick me up then this is the product for you. Perfect for both guys and gals and a summer must try if you haven't already! Another fantastic launch that has me all ready to glow glow glow ...  as you can see with both products in action below! 

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Glow, Beauty Glow Instant look in a palette, Overnight Bronze and Glow Mask

Two amazing new product additions to the Charlotte Tilbury line that get a big thumbs up from me so if you are deliberating over either of these that I highly recommend you do go ahead and try! (Available here).

I have seen that Charlotte has since launched a third product to this glow range, Unisex Healthy Glow, a hydrating tinted moisturiser that I think deserves a try so watch this space! 

Have you tried these #GLOWMO?













Holiday Prep. This can be time consuming, expensive and stressful. We have all been there and spending xxxxx amount on toiletries is a yearly holiday occurrence for most of us. I feel I won't be alone in saying that makeup and toiletries take up majority of my suitcase on any travel adventure and I would rather pack less clothes than sacrifice a cosmetic. Do you feel me? Thought so. 

Well once again (drumroll) Mintd Box have come to the rescue for us all this month with a luxury box of goodies that tick a lot of 'what we all need cosmetic wise' boxes. All luxurious of course, this is Mintd Box we are talking about and products and brands that I think you shall love just as much as I do. Mintd Box bring new products and brands into play every month to which I am always excited for because even individually, there could be one product that really stands out to you. 

You will all know about Mintd Box if you read my blog, 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 reason I review these boxes every month is for one, I adore Mintd Box as a company so I am so happy to support them and am very grateful that they provide me with a box to show you all and being that it is an investment, I would rather let you know every detail month after month so you are 100% sure that is for you or not. Plus I have discovered some amazing individual products through Mintd Box and brands that I personally have gone out and re-purchased myself.

For any new subscribers who purchase a 3 or 6 month plan, you shall receive the amazing newly launched Argentum Illuminating Bar worth a whopping £104 (from Net a Porter)! See last month's blog post for a full review of this product here


The contents of this box have a combined value of over £142/€162 for which you only pay £65/€77 per month or bi-monthly giving you an enormous £77/€88 saving as opposed to buying all products individually. 

So after having opened up this box a few weeks ago and trialling all inside, let me share my thoughts in full and tell you whether they made the KELLiLASH cut .... 

Bliss Triple Oxygen UV Protection Moisturiser
1. Bliss Triple Oxygen UV Protection Moisturiser (Full Size £35) here!
A NEW daily moisturiser with UV defence, CPR technology (Vitamin C, Cruciferous Extract, EUK-134, Fluid 02, and Soy Protein) and ingredients that our skins love to give the ultimate protection whilst repairing damage that may have already happened caused by the environment, resulting in a more radiant, healthier looking skin. Other ingredients include Green Tea to help protect skin from damage, Grapeseed Extract for help against collagen and elastin breakdown, Mulberry Root Extract to help soothe and protect against free radical and White Lily Extract to soother and hydrate. 

Sunscreen, an essential all year round. You may recognise this beauty as it is not the first time you have seen it on my blog as I did in fact post a full review about it as it launched as for me it's an essential (read here). I LOVE this product hence I am so happy that you can share my love for it too. It is a peachy looking cream that smells exactly like freshly squeezed oranges, it's divine! The texture is nice and light yet rich enough to make your skin feel nourished and hydrated, leaving no dreaded white film on the skin. I cannot recommend this one enough for everyone as a daily moisturiser with it's good level of SPF33. Everyone shall love this one, especially as it does so much for the skin.

Aurelia Miracle Cleanser with Muslin Cloth
2. Aurelia Miracle Cleanser with Muslin Cloth (Super Deluxe Size £15) here!
Aurelia is a British, Cruelty free brand made without any nasties. This creamy aromatic, cleanser is designed to glide over skin to remove all makeup and impurities. It combines probiotic and pepide technologies with BioOrganic plant and flower essences to hydrate and soothe dull, dehydrated skins to give you a dewy glow whilst helping to fight premature ageing. It comes with a soft anti-bacterial bamboo muslin cloth that buffs away dead skin helping it's renewal process. 

This hands down wins on the presentation front because I don't think I have ever seen a cleanser come so prettily packaged, I mean is that not the cutest? The inside matches the outside as this smells divine. It has a powerful scent of Eucalyptus, Chamomile, Rosemary and Bergamot. You really smell the Eucalyptus which would be perfect if you had a cold as the scent combined with a mini pamper session would make you feel so much better. It is beautiful and takes me back to my facialist days being very pampering and spa like. The creamy consistency feels like butter and is so nourishing as my skin really did feel super soft and clean after having used it. The muslin cloths are fantastic and I highly recommend using them together to get the maximum benefits. I would say this is better designed for drier skins as sensitive or oily skins may find it to be a little to much. This is my first time trying Aurelia and I am impressed as this really is a beautiful cleanser and a lovely clean, kind brand. Also a very portable travel cleanser for any trip! 
Rosalena Goodness and Tonic Facial Mist 
3. Rosalena Goodness and Tonic Facial Mist (Full Size £22) here!
An uplifting Toning Mist to refresh and revive your skin and mind. Containing Melissa and Orange Blossom as well as Rosalena's natural Plant Preserve combined with Organic Bergamot, Sweet Organge and Grapefruit essential oils. Rosalena are all natural and non-toxic using no parabens, sulphates, synthetic colours, fragrances etc. 

Face mists are your own personal summer air-conditioning, hence essential. I was glad to see another familiar face in this box as Rosalena is one of my favourite skincare brands to date. I use this as a toner to brighten and refresh my skin, a post make-up setting spray or during the day when I need a pick me up. Trust me, this is what you need when flying long haul as it shall be a skin saviour! Just think Gin and Tonic for your skin, it hits the spot! Being in a metal bottle means it always mists cold but you could always store it in the fridge for an extra shot of coolness in the heat; isn't that the best feeling?! Love, love, love this and you need to try Rosalena if you haven't as they make the most amazing facial oils that shall have you smitten from the moment you apply them to your skin here

Lauren Napier 5 Facial Wipes
4. Lauren Napier 5 Facial Wipes (Super Deluxe at £8) here!
This pack contains 5 individually wrapped facial cleansing wipes that are very compact to fit into your bag, clutch, gym bag or desk drawer! They are designed to remove make-up, pollution and impurities containing Aloe, Water, Camomilla and Cucumber extracts to hydrate and smooth the skins appearance to reduce reduce and inflammation. 

I am not usually a fan of any facial wipe and would only ever consider them to remove make-up and not to cleanse. These are purely designed to be a convenience to refresh your skin and I love the fact they are so luxurious being individually wrapped as they definitely don't feel like a baby wipe. These are perfect for on the go to have in your makeup bag as you may want to refresh your skin at the beach, gym or on a long haul flight for instance. Very convenient and actually a very good idea especially for males as my husband always uses hot towels on his face and hands so this, he would love. I mean I love a pre-wrapped hand wipe so why not have one that is specially designed for your skin. These are in my travel bags ready and waiting

Miller Harris Lumiere Doree Hand Cream
5. Miller Harris Lumiere Doree Hand Cream (Full Size £18) here!
A very luxurious hand cream containing a blend of intense hydrating Shea butter and Argan Oil along with Aloe Vera to help the most sensitive of skins. 

We all need to keep our hands nice and hydrated as they dry out during travel and the climate changes. I was so happy to discover this one in the box as last month's box contained the Miller Harris shower wash in the same scent and I even mentioned I would love more products in the same fragrance. Well my prayers were answered (thank you Mintd Box!) as this is absolutely beautiful and may just be my favourite hand cream of all timeThe luxurious cream sinks into your skin beautifully and is by means greasy or tacky. The scent, Lumiere Dorée for me smells just like freshly washed laundry which is so comforting with that real home-like feel. I applied this before doing my make-up and the whole time my hand was at my face I could smell it! If you aren't a fan of fragranced hand creams then you may not like  it but Miller Harris are a fragrance house and for me they really have brought this to their whole line. Mintd Box were in fact responsible for introducing me to two other favourites, Haeckels (here) and African Botanics hand creams (here) both of which again I fell massively in love. This scent and texture combined, is my total dream and I get excited to use it each and every time. 
Smith & Cult Waterproof Eyeliner in Still Riot, Classic Black
6. Smith & Cult Waterproof B-Line Eye Pen (Still Riot Classic Black) (Full Size £21) here!
A very rich black liquid liner with a felt nib to give transfer resistant pigment making a feline flick easy. Quick drying and waterproof, Smith and Cult state that this wont smudge or flake.

One thing we do need for the holidays is makeup that is hassle free meaning waterproof, smudge proof, life proof etc etc. You cannot go wrong with a staple such as a waterproof liquid eyeliner which makes this product a great addition to the box. I wasn't a fan of the last Smith & Cult product that was in a previous box, the mascara but this liner, I really like. I love a felt nib on a liquid liner to make doing a 'flick' so much easier as it gives you full control and this one really does that very well, as well as staying put and is very nice and opaque. I am yet to test it 'on holiday' so I can keep you posted should you want to know but for me, you can never have enough good eyeliners!

Stephie Ann Silk Eye Mask
Stephie Ann Silk Eye Mask
7. Stephie Ann Silk Eye Mask (Full Size £23) here!
Designed to boost sleep, this luxurious 95% silk eye mask is the ultimate sleep aid and travel accessory made for relaxation. Scented with Lavender, the mask is lined with black silk and fitted with an elastic strap at the back.

Sleeping when on a flight and when you are away from home can be difficult for some (like me) so whatever we can do to aid sleep is essential for a relaxing holiday. The bright purple, floral design of this sleep mask is so pretty and the relaxing lavender scent had me falling in love with this instantly. This is the kind of thing I always mean to buy, but never get round to splurging on a 'good one' which makes this a brilliant addition to Mintd Box. It's so comfortable to wear and just helps you to zone out. Most definitely one of the most luxurious sleep masks you shall come across. I love the ethos and care behind this British brand as it really feels nice and personal.
