Mintd Box • Post Summer Skin Rehab

Mintd Box, Post Summer Skin Rehab
Last month I spoke about a brand new concept in beauty boxes bought to you by the marvellous Mintd Box. It is safe to say that Mintd Box caught all of our attentions and this months box theme shall indeed grab your attention even more.


Just to recap, Mintd Box is like no other beauty box service you have seen before and doesn't even come under the same umbrella as other companies. This is gold star service offering the latest A-listers in beauty. A monthly or bi-monthly (the choice is yours) luxury beauty subscription that sources exceptional high end, luxury brands so that every month or two, you receive a selection of 4/5 full sized beauty products. Their team of London Beauty Experts ensure that the products are in tune with global trends and your personal preference. Mintd Box aim to inspire and encourage women to reveal their inner beauty through discovering new brands. In my opinion, the only beauty box that is worth knowing about. Forget all others, this one beats them all. 

Each month there is a general theme and this months box theme is Post Summer Skin Rehab which is all about holding on to that radiant glow and keeping your skin nourished and hydrated with a post summer skin rehab dream team. As always, Mintd Box deliver your beauty goodies all together in a beautiful white, sturdy box all wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon making every month feel like your in beauty heaven. If you want to know all my first impressions then check out last months unboxing. 


I for one could not have been any happier with this box theme as it is the type of routine that I have been carrying out myself already after having been on holidays and living in a sunny climate. I was even more excited to spot one of my top skin weapons feature in here that I have been keeping secret, as many of you have actually commented on how good my skin is looking, so carry on reading to find out which one of the above it is! (Pssst ... there shall be a full blog post all about this brand on the blog soon so stay tuned).

This month and as always, Mintd Box have teamed up with some incredible beauty brands to bring to your very own home the ultimate full body pamper session. Included in this box are 5 full sized beauty products for the UK and 4 full/ 2 travel sized beauty products for the rest of the world from brands stocked in prestigious stores such as Harrods, Havey Nicols, Selfridges, Rosalena and Beauty Expert

It really does just get better and better and trust me, these are products you are going to want to try. This really is such a massive saving!!!!

So let's talk more about each item included in this months box ... 

Anne Semonin Exfoliating Mask

Anne Semonin Exfoliating Mask
1. Anne Semonin Exfoliating Mask (Full size £42) link!
Designed to rid your skin of dead skin skin cells, excess oils and bacteria to restore the skins natural balance using Kaolin, White Nettle, Birch and Sage. Micro beads of red seaweed help to gently smooth your skin's texture giving you bright, radiant glowing skin. As a result, acne will be reduced and prevented and dull, tired looking skin shall become fresher and younger looking. 

A dual purpose product that acts as an exfoliator and a mask - this is my kind of product! I was introduced to Anne Semonin through last months Explore Mintd Box and since then I have already got my hands on some more of her products as they have me hooked. I was quick to use this mask from the moment that I received this box because I love face masks and this one is a gem of a mask. It is one of those easy to use, hassle free, yet highly effective skincare products where you see results instantly. If you are lazy when it comes to exfoliating and masking then here is your answer so no excuses needed. It really is super simple and shall make a world of difference to your skin and the effectiveness of your other skincare products, trust me on this. A great mask for that time of the month as this shall help ease congestion and keep it looking bright and when our skin is happy, we are a whole lot happier too.

Rosalena Face Oil, Frank and Sense

Great name right?! Remember that I mentioned that this box contained one of my skins secret weapons? ... Well this is it. My secret is out. This facial oil really has been the product that has kept my skin radiant, healthy and simply glowing. Frank & Sense is an all season beauty oil, rich in anti-oxidants and bio-active ingredients that rehydrate, regenerate and nourish. It is the perfect antidote for seasonal skin changes, especially effective for post sun repair and to combat the drying effects of winter. Get your glow, whatever the weather basically! 

Rosalena specialise in 100% Natural Facial Oils and are a London based company that was created by two very inspiring women, Maja & Helena who set out to give us just what our skin needs and to make it an experience without putting chemical-laden ingredients into our bodies. Their oils are made purely from plant ingredients with no hidden nasties whatsoever. The oils take the place of your moisturiser as that is what they effectively are, just in oil form and not a cream. This results in shine free hydration with a more nourished and brighter skin. I am sure you can agree, a very unique concept that makes perfect sense. No complicated jargon and fancy claims, just pure goodness. I LOVE this oil.

I won't go into too heavy detail as I have a forthcoming full blog post all about Rosalena, so stay tuned should you want to know more. Let me say this though, Frank and Sense is one product that I shall not do without. My skin has never felt so happy over the summer months and with all the travelling that I do, this really does help to keep it that way. A product and brand that I highly recommend you need to go check out. Avid facial oil fans, shall most certainly fall in love with Rosalena.

Magic Stripes Wake Me Up Collagen Eye Patches

Magic Stripes Wake Me Up Collagen Eye Patches
3. Magic Stripes Wake Me Up Collagen Eye Patches x 5 pairs (Full size £27) link!
Concentrated Cooling eyepatches to help reduce the appearance of lines, dark circles and eye bags and wake up tired eyes in just one use. The cold effect takes down puffiness reducing eye bags and darkness. That magical ingredient that we all love, Hyaluronic Acid provides the skin with moisture which immediately reduces fine wrinkles, lines and dryness whilst increasing the skins elasticity and collagen. 

These are amazing and I love the instant cooling sensation as you just know they are going to help! I love eye masks like this because they really can make the world of difference in a short time. A great pre-party trick to looking your best when you need a little boost! They are also a great excuse to really relax, if only for the 30 mins whilst you have them on, as a pamper session would not be complete without an eye mask so use a good one such as these, which shall not only relax you, but get to doing some serious work too!

Haeckels Hand Balm 
Haeckels Hand Balm 
Haeckels Hand Balm 
4. Haeckels Hand Balm (Full size £18) link!
A vitamin rich, fast absorbing hand balm to hydrate both your hands and cuticles. This luxurious hand balm contains fragrant coastal flowers and skin softening emollients to nourish and protect. Seaweed and geranium extracts (love) encourage skin repair as well as providing essential vitamins to repair any damage. 

Now we all need a hand cream in our bag, on our dresser, in our bathroom etc so make sure you use one that makes you want to use it - that is the trick! When it comes to using hand creams, for me it is always the scent and the 'not being greasy' that are the two main selling points so if it can't live up to these, then I wont use it. This one however lives up to both. Although this is a balm, it seems to liquify and absorb into the skin almost immediately just leaving you with a very herbal, flowery type of scent that shall have you smelling your hands constantly afterwards. It really is beautiful and very luxe. 

IOMA Expert Ritual
IOMA Expert Ritual
5. IOMA Expert Ritual (Travel size £9) link!
A fabulous idea that I am surprised no one came up with sooner! Contact lens like, small tabs of skincare that let you travel light whilst ensuring all your skincare comes with you. This is a complete set of what you will need for a weekend away. They contain four targeted treatments so your skin care is simple whilst 'on the go'. 

IOMA Expert rituals tabs include :-
- Fresh gel eye make-up remover 2 x 1ml
- Flash youth eye contour cream 2 x 1ml
- Youthful moisture cream day and night 2 x 1ml
- Lip lift x 1ml

I am new to this skincare brand but it does look and sound very impressive and this is such a genius idea because this travel size takes up no space and weighs practically nothing so packing 'light' is actually possible, hence I am saving them for my next trip.

Mintd Box, Post Summer Skin Rehab

Another impressive box I think we can all agree. I did think the team at Mintd Box would not be able to top their last Explore Box but ohhhhh they have certainly done that which makes me even more excited to see what is to come?! I think it is safe to say that you won't be getting any 'bad' boxes with Mintd Box unlike a few other brands. 


Just to recap, this box has a combined value of over £139/€164 giving you an enormous £74/€87 saving

Available HERE via monthly & bi-monthly plans so if you want to purchase this Post Summer Skin Rehab Box then it is available now from 1st September and Mintd Box have given me the code 10OFF1SKL to share with you all to get 10% off your first box (I don't get anything out of this, just sharing a code!). Ships to: UK , US, CA, Europe, AU & NZ .

  2. Kelli, just to tell you thank you for this wonderful review. You made me impatient now. I really cannot wait to get the September box in my hands.

    I agree with Anne Semonin masks and haven't tried this one because I sent it to one of my friend as a gift. Clearly because I knew I'll have the full size soon.

    What really calls my attention is Rosalena Oil and more knowing that it was your secret weapon.
    I need to try it.

    The other brands are not familiar for me but am sure that I'll be happy with MINDT team selection.


    Thank you very much,
    Mar

  4. Kelly, what a detailed and thorough review. You definitely did this wonderful box justice! As you probably already guessed, I am in agreement with you on all the points raised. Mintd is definitely the crème de la crème of the subscription boxes. Their attention to detail and product selections have really struck a chord with me. Needless to say, I've been enjoying these products as much as you have!
    Great review and stunning photos!

  5. Oh this box look so luxurious as well as all the goodies in it. I don't have any subscription for any beauty box but this is one I would definitely sign up for. All the products sounds wonderful and you gave such a lovely review on everything. The Rosalena Face Oil sounds wonderful and excited to hear your thoughts on it given that I am a face oil junkie. xo

    1. My advice is ignore all other boxes, this is the only one you need to know about! I have never had a beauty box that hasn't sat there for weeks on end before I got to using it, but as soon as I received this one, all contents were in use! It honestly is the best of the best in my opinion and being a skincare professional for so many years, being able to please so many people with the same products is very hard to do, but Mintd do it!
      The Rosalena face oil review is live so I really hope that you enjoy it - trust me you shall want this even more after reading! ;-) K xx
