Spring Clean your Skin • with Mintd Box


Spring is in the air which means our skincare shall be needing a few seasonal changes. If your current skincare products don't excite you then it's time for a change to ones that do. It's the same with clothes, make-up and food for instance, if they don't bring you happiness and make you feel good each time you use them, then what is the point? We change with the seasons, so just as we spring clean our wardrobes and diet, we need to do the same with our skincare. 

I have been really excited to write this post as this month, courtesy of the wonderful Mintd Box, our skin is in for a huge treat. If you are a regular reader to my blog then you shall know all about Mintd Box but it you not familiar with the concept then please do check my other posts here and here to find out all the details.

The Luxury Contents:-
1. Oilixia Gummy Facial Cleanser (Full Size £24) link
2. Su-Man Velvet Brightening Serum (Full Size £98link
3. Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream (Full Size £40link
4. Patchology Smart Mud Mask (Full Size at £24link

The contents of this box have a combined value of over £186/€213 for which you only pay £65/€76 per month or bi-monthly giving you an enormous £121/€139 saving as opposed to buying all products individually. 

Now, hold on a minute, did you read that saving?? £121/€139 .... that is pretty much insane! The Su-Man Serum is £98 alone so this is probably the biggest skincare must have this month and I say that with total truth and honesty. Wait until I tell you more about each product individually because let's just say, I would get yours while you can.

Mintd Box March, Spring Clean, Oilixia Gummy Facial Cleanser
1. Oilixia Gummy Facial Cleanser (Full Size £24) buy here!
Inspired by the laid back beauty of Australia, this highly unique gummy textured cleanser glides over skin, turning tacky, to help lift off make-up and remove dirt deep down. By adding a little water, the gum turns into a milk so that it can be easily removed. Containing Kakadu Plum extract (don't you just love that name, so aussie!) is one of the best natural sources of Vitamin C as well as Phenolic Acid which gently exfoliates your skin for a smoother and brighter looking texture. Macadamia oil and Eucalyptus provide nourishing and antibacterial actions. 

Out of all the cleansers that I have ever tried, this is by far the most unique one I have ever come across. I found myself uttering words of 'what an earth ...' as I squeezed this out of the tube thinking it reminded me exactly of my Vicks Vapour Rub (having just had a cold!). This really is so innovative and most importantly, works really well to clean the skin. Even though it looks like some weird sticky, gummy, type gel, it glides over your face so smoothly before turning tacky once in direct contact with your skin. They tell you to use a 'press and lift' action which causes this intense suction that actually makes your cheeks wobble; that is how much suction is created! My skin was left feeling so soft and looked much brighter after what was a really enjoyable cleansing routine. I did not expect to like this as much as I do on first glance, but I cant sing its praises enough, I actually LOVE it. 
Mintd Box March, Spring Clean, Su-Man Velvet Skin Brightening Serum 
Su-man Velvet Brightening serum
Su-man Velvet Brightening serum
2. Su-Man Velvet Brightening Serum (Full Size £98) All Skin Types.  Buy here!
Think 'liquid rose petals' for the skin and there you have this next product. A velvet skin serum that aims to deliver a boost of radiance, comfort and softness with Su-man's signature blend of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, omegas, ceramides and dragons blood extract that invigorates, diminishes the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. A very high tech anti ageing elixir for firmer, brighter looking skin that feels like new. 

Nothing not to like there I think you will agree?! Now Su-man has been a brand on my radar for some time so when I discovered I was getting the chance to try this through Mintd Box I was one very excited gal. One of my fellow blogger friends Jamey (jameylynnloves.com) always raved about Su-man to me which put in on my radar and I now follow Su-man on Instagram and she is one very passionate lady when it comes to skincare hence the reason I fell in love with the brand before even trying it as her methods and skincare talks sent me into a trance. To say I love this product is an understatement. This has to be one of the most luxurious serums I have ever used (and there have been many believe me) as this really does feel like liquid velvet on the skin and even after only a few uses, I can see and feel all of it's benefits. There is no stickiness, no heaviness, just a silky texture that absorbs fast and smells very softly of rose. You have to shake the serum before use in order to activate all of its ingredients which looks like a little magic potion gathering all its trickery! But it's real results are instant and speak for themselves to which I can honestly say any serum fan or non serum fan for that fact, will love this one as there is nothing not to like, well maybe the price as it is on the expensive side I know which is what makes Mintd Box such an amazing deal. I would 100% invest in this serum knowing how amazing it is which has now enticed me into trying more from Su-man as this really is one very special skincare product that I am so happy to be using. 
Tula Hydrating Day and Night Cream
3. Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream (Full Size £40) All skin types, all ages. Buy here!
A daily moisturiser that acts as a daily vitamin for your skin and can used both day and night. Using their signature probiotic technology, the cream is designed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the skins suppleness. It is light enough for the day yet hydrating enough for the night to deeply nourish. This is perfect for those needing hydration and anti-ageing benefits. Contains no phthalates, parabens, mineral oil, petroleum, propylene glycol, sulphates or gluten and is cruelty free. 

Having never tried anything before from Tula, I was again very excited to try seeing as the brand features highly on my Instagram feed. This so reminds me of being young and watching my mum do her skincare as the scent reminds me of what creams smelt like as child which brings back such memories! It feels so cooling and refreshing on the skin and is the perfect texture to definitely suit day and night time wear as your skin feels so airy and fresh. Perfect for all year round but great for the summer as the cooling effect shall be so beneficial as an after sun. Very impressed wth this one which intrigues me to know more about Tula and try more from them. 

Mintd Box March, Spring Clean, Pathology SmartMud Masque
Mintd Box March, Spring Clean, Pathology SmartMud Masque
4. Pathology Smart Mud Mask x 4 Sheets (Full Size at £24Normal, Combination & Oily Skins. Buy here!
"Holy Sheet. Mud without the Mess!" - Pathology. At last .....!!!!!!
A revolutionary detox mud sheet mask that purifies the skin to eliminate toxins, dirt and dullness using 'SmartMud' without any pore clogging or trail of devastation. Rich in Volcanic Ash, Koalin clay, Charcoal, Glycerin, Collagen combined with the "FlexMasque" technology, this sheet mask gets the mud right where you want it and not where you don't i.e. all over the bathroom. 

I fell in love with Patchology a few months back after having used a few of their other sheet masks [here] and this one has not disappointed. I love clay masks but I do hate the removal process as they do take some elbow grease to remove and clean up after so this format is genius. There seriously is NO MESS. The last Clay Sheet mask I used [here] was very messy, although very good in result, the mess was a tad off putting so this is where this one takes the lead. Once applied and left on for about 10 minutes, it dries like paper maché for you to simply feel off. All that was left was a slight outline clay residue that took no time to remove. The mask had a really nice scent to it and felt very cooling and refreshing as it worked its magic to detox. My skin did feel a little tight as it got towards the end but 10 minutes to sit and wait is nothing. I still can't believe it made no mess and for this reason alone it gets a huge thumbs up! I have to say my skin looked so clear and has felt super soft and smooth for days after having used it. Definitely the best combined Mud/Sheet mask that I have tried to date and Normal/Combination & Oily skins shall  welcome this one. 

Mintd Box March, Spring Clean
Most definitely one of my favourite boxes ever from Mintd Box. This I know because the contents have all sat in my bathroom and each is being used every day, apart from the masks of course. This shows to me just how much of a fan I am to all these new brands. I can't stress enough just how fantastic the deal is if you are looking for high class skincare with a huge saving. Even if you just get this box alone, it shall be one of the best purchases you shall make.

Just in case you need a little more convincing, you get free delivery in the UK, free delivery on your first box when you sign up using the code WELCOME17 worldwide and ships to UK, W Europe, North America & Australia [here]

I am in no way sponsored as you should know by now, simply giving my honest opinion is what I am here for. Seriously, why waste time trying to decide what products to use this Spring when the hard work has all been done for you. Hats off to Cheryl from Mintd Box for creating a skincare dream this month as I for one give this a strong 10/10, 100/100, A-Star, Gold medal .... you get the idea, it's fantastic.  

What do you think?
Have you tried any of these brands before?
