Mintd Box • Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit


One thing guaranteed to make the start of a new month instantly better is receiving my Mintd Box. Never have I been so keen to rip into packaging because I know that each month, this box holds some A-List beauty treasures. So it is time again for me to let you all into the secret of what lies in store for the October Mintd box.  

As you can see from the title this months theme is Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit. Now the words 'beauty' and 'sleep' instantly makes my eyes turn love heart shaped as we all know we need it! For me, anything that helps me get that, is worth it's weight in gold seeing as winding down to go to sleep is something that I struggle with nightly. I never seem to switch off enough, so I knew that this would be one that a lot of us would be interested in. We all talk about getting our 'beauty sleep' so it is about time we did it right?

Just in case you missed last months unboxing [here] and you aren't familiar with what I am talking about then Mintd Box are 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 always deliver a gold star service with the latest A-listers in beauty.

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit,  Aromatherapy Associates Perfect Partners Bath & Shower Oils
Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit,  Aromatherapy Associates Perfect Partners Bath & Shower Oils
1. Aromatherapy Associates Perfect Partners Bath & Shower Oils (Travel £19) link!
This stunning duo consists of 7.5ml bottles of the Aromatherapy Associates two most popular award winning bath and shower oils. Revive for the morning and Deep Relax for the evening, enough for about 3 shower or bath treatments per bottle. Simply add one third of the bottle to your bath or apply directly into the body before showering for the most amazing experience.

I actually screamed when I spotted this as Aromatherapy Associates are mine (and my husbands) absolute favourite bath oil brand of all time as they truly work serious magic . I have used them for many years now, but they are also a treat so I don't always have them in my stocks. They really are an exceptional brand unlike any other, as being such an intense concentration of aromatherapy oil, the results really are powerful.  Anyone who has used them shall know how they not only affect the body but the mind too and really change how you feel. My no1 has always been De-stress Muscle as that scent alone sends me into the zzzzzz zone. I am not a bath person at all, I am a shower gal and hand on heart this is the ONLY brand that makes me want to take a bath. I can't say enough good things about them other than that if you are not familiar with this brand, then please get acquainted, you shall thank me. My favourite bath oils combined with my favourite beauty box makes me one very happy lady already.

2. Whitehorn Eye Mask in Antique Rose or Ruby Lavender (Full Size £28) link!
From the British brand, Whitehorn, this is a Ruby Lavender scented eye mask that has been hand painted onto 100% silk with a dolphin grey satin trim. It has a plum coloured velvet padded back which is filled with English Lavender and a black velvet elasticated band to secure over your head. 

I have been after one of these for ages but lets face it, good ones are not cheap so haven't taken the plunge, hence I am overjoyed to own one at last and my word this one is luxe. It is so comfortable and instantly relaxing that I find myself inhaling the lavender each time I see it laying by the bed. This will not only be ideal for night time but also for travel on long haul flights as I always struggle to get comfortable so this is a must. The velvet feels so lovely on your eyes and as my lovely friend Cat suggested, it makes a great headband when taking off your makeup at night! Inhaling the lavender scent whilst doing your nightly facial routine adds to the whole 'relaxation' vibe too! I do feel ever so much the Hollywood Siren wearing this to bed, hence my inner Grace Kelly self comes out. I love it.

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit, Wildheart Tranquil Candle
3. Wild Heart Organics Tranquil Candle (Travel Size £12) link!
Wild Heart Organic's best selling relaxing blend is sleep inducing making this candle a must have at bed time. Designed to calm the soul, this soy candle is 100% clean and natural with nothing but 12 pure essential oils such as lavender, neroli, orange blossom, sandalwood, clary sage and chamomile all proven to have sleep inducing properties.

I am a candle obsessive and I think just having this next to me, unlit even, will send me to sleep. The scent is just beautiful and this is what scented my whole Mintd Box making it a literal 'spa in a box!'. I so wish I could give you smell-a-vision at this point because it is truly stunning. If this wont relax me and all of us, then I don't know what will.

4. Siskyn Organic Camellia & Safflower Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil  (Full Size at £32) link!
Siskyn is a British brand run by two sisters who pride themselves in providing luxury vegan skincare. This Award Winning Hot Cloth Cleansing Oil is very gentle and effective at melting away all make-up. It is packed full of 100% organic botanical oils and perfect for all skin types including sensitive and acne prone skins and is even pain relieving against breakouts. It is blended to balance and work with the skins natural oils to leave your skin feeling nourished and radiant. 

This is a totally new brand to me but it stood out straight away with its luxe image and wonderful sounding description. I am a huge fan of all facial oils and I love to use cleansing oils and balms so I instantly took to trying this one out. I massaged one pump all over my face then run my cleansing cloth which comes with this oil under warm water to remove it, then repeated a second time. My skin felt super clean, as in there was nothing but goodness on it and looked so clear and even in tone. This is quite a heavy feeling oil on the skin but seeing as it is not staying on the skin, it is not a problem. The scent is lovely, very herbal and non offensive and the fact that it is absolutely free from all nasties such as silicones, synthetics, mineral oils, petrochemicals, fragrances, colours ... you get the idea, makes this one I recommend to all. Another big benefit of this oil is that due to its high levels of Castor oil, this helps to strengthen brows and help lashes grow! Being so natural there is nothing not too like about it and the results show in your skin. A beautiful skincare product that certainly has impressed me.

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit, Oskia Bedtime beauty boost night cream 
5. Oskia Skincare Bedtime Beauty Boost (Travel Size £23.40) link!
A luxurious night cream, again free from all nasties, which is packed full of patented anti-ageing ingredients, nutrients and floral extracts to provide the skin with supercharged overnight health to boost and prevent signs of early ageing. Rose hip seed oil which is rich in Vit A rejuvenates and repairs, Shea butter, Jojoba, Sesame, Rice germ oil, Omega 3, 6 & 9 all contribute in the repair process. It helps to detoxify, boost collagen as well as calm and soothe the skin and reduce pigmentation as well as hydrate and nourish. The aim is to wake up to softer, healthier looking skin that has a natural glow about it. 

Although this is rich in ingredients it is in fact quite lightweight in texture and absorbs very easily into the skin but I would be careful not to apply too much as you can feel residue on the skin with this one which actually makes this a lovely night cream for the Autumn/Winter.  It has quite a 'unique' scent which may not please everyone but if it works, it works! I am still quite new to Oskia skincare but the one product that I adore from them is the Renaissance Mask. That product is truly stunning and works so well to bring radiance to the skin and it smells divine. I haven't used this Beauty Boost cream long enough to be able to confirm all claims but my skin most definitely looked brighter and felt super soft and hydrated after just a few uses. Although this is stated as a travel size, 15ml size shall last a decent amount of time and for me, having a travel size night cream in my stocks is useful! Hence boxes like this bring new products and brands into our lives that we may have not discovered before.

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit, Evidens Eye Recovery 
6. Evidens Eye Recovery (Travel Size £30.78) link!
The Eye Recovery Serum is a high tech, nano-emulsion that works to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, erase dark circles, fight signs of fatigue (hooray to that!) and plumps the fine skin that is around the eyes. Containing high performance ingredients such as Triple Collagen, Co-enzyme Q10, Amino acids, Vitamin K, Hyaluronic Acid, Sorbitol to name a few, this is one very luxurious, high tech, anti ageing eye cream. It states to apply this serum every night onto the eyelids and also around the inner and outer corners. 

Evidens is new brand to me and this sample size (2.5ml) is actually valued at £31 given that the full 15ml size retails at £185, so I think this sample could be like gold dust, so getting this to try this through Mintd Box is very exciting. It shall last a fair amount of time as you only need a tiny amount anyhow, so enough to know if you like it or not. I adore eye serums more than creams as I love the cooling and soothing effect that they give you and this one feels absolutely beautiful. It is super high end and super luxurious and I am so glad that I have got the chance to try it as it really is special. I was reading more about the brand on their website and their Spas look absolutely divine; I want to go here!

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit
We all say we "need our beauty sleep" so with thanks to Mintd Box, they have made this an actual experience with all the right ingredients needed for a good nights sleep, night after night. So there we have what is effectively a good nights beauty sleep in a box!

You have to admit this is a box of ingredients that ALL of us could do with and don't you agree that this would make the most amazing gift for a special friend or loved one also, especially when you are effectively saving £80/€91.

Mintd Box, Your Essential Beauty Sleep Kit
Mintd Box (aka the wonderful Cheryl and her team) really are living up to every expectation because month after month the theme and choice of product is spot on and so different from the box before it, which makes this a very excitable company to be reviewing each and every product for, as I truly believe in them and have big faith in what is coming month after month.

  7. Kelly, beautiful review and photos as always! You have done this box justice and I found myself nodding in agreement as I was reading the post. I have to say this is month's box is my favorite thus far. I love love the oil and the candle in particular, but the eye serum, night cream and eye mask are just as amazing and luxurious!
