A Love Letter to You • with Mintd Box


How often do you get the chance to spoil yourself? Not as much as you deserve I am sure. So, as well as going out of your way to show love to others, make sure you give yourself just as much. Self love is so important even if we can be our own worst critic at times, but do take time to empower your inner and outer beauty, not just this month, but all year round. Taking time out 'for you' is one thing we all need to make time for. 

This is made even more possible with this months "Love Letter to You' themed Mintd Box as it could not be any more perfect in making you feel very special. The packaging of this month's box is absolutely stunning and wowed me from the moment I set eyes on it.

Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You
One product in particular that I have wanted for ever but never quite made the splurge is featured in this month's box so I was ecstatic to say the least. So let me start by telling you about that one first ..... 

Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You, SLIP SILK PILLOWCASE
Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You, SLIP SILK PILLOWCASE
Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You, SLIP SILK PILLOWCASE
1. SLIP Silk Pillowcase (Queen) Gold (Full Size £79(link here!)
Not your average pillowcase and a beauty product all in itself. SLIP is an anti-aging, anti-crease, anti-bed head silk pillowcase. We apparently spend a third of our life asleep - by the time we are 60 we would have slept for an average of 20 years. Isn't that crazy! 20 years of bed head?! SLIP silk pillowcases are made with Slipsilk that has been developed and refined for over ten years to give the ultimate combination of shine, thickness, softness and durability. They use the highest grade (6A) long fibre Mulberry Silk that has been proven to significantly reduce friction and absorb less face creams compared to cotton pillowcases. Slipsilk is a natural fibre where as synthetic satin is rougher, thinner and 'sweats'.

As we sleep, cotton can grab and twist your hair and throughout the night this causes damage and morning bed head. High grade Silk pillowcases such as these is a lot more gentle on hair allowing a fresh blow dry to last over night. If that hasn't sold you I don't know what will! There is nothing more annoying then going to sleep with nice hair then waking up looking like you have been out in a wind storm. These pillowcases really do work! I am over the moon with it as once you have one, you won't want to swap back. In fact I need another! I have a few mulberry silk scarfs and I love the way they feel when I wear them and this feels like I am going to sleep on them and doesn't really get any more luxe than this. The fact that they are recommended by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and hairdressers says it all. If you can afford to splurge then do OR just purchase this Mintd Box because the cost of the entire box and it's contents is LESS than buying the pillowcase alone! Now that is what I call a beauty deal. 

If you read my 5 Beauty Resolutions for 2018 blog post here, then you shall know that this was Resolution No 4; Invest in Silk SLIP Pillowcases - so thanks to Mintd, I can cross this off that list!
Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You, THERAPIE BATH AND SHOWER ESSENCE
2. Therapie Equilibrium Bath & Shower Essence (Full Size £42(link here!)
Feeling stressed? Tired? Washed out? Nodding along to all of these? .. keep reading. World renowned Aromatherapist Michelle Roques O'Neil developed 'Therapie' to act as a self-healing programme to restore energy, alleviate stress and recover your own well being. This bath and shower oil is a blend Persian Rose, New Zealand Lavender, Sandalwood, Jasmine, Wild Sweet Orange and Fragonia, a powerful oil with anti-anxiety properties. Add a few drops into a bath or massage into your skin pre-shower as this promsies to help wash away your anxiety. Have you clicked buy yet?

I have indeed used this before, as I was introduced to it by Mintd Box last year, so I am very happy to have it back in my bathroom. It smells seriously incredible. I am not a bath person but it is products like this that make me run one. It all comes back to the power of aromatherapy, one of the greatest things in relieving daily stress and anxiety. The weighted glass bottle makes this feel super luxurious and one of those special pamper items that you save for when is ultimately necessary, like the fact that it's a Monday perhaps 😏. Again, this months box is amazing value as the oil alone retails at £42 so a great time to try it for yourself. 

Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You,  COCOLUX AUSTRALIA
3. Cocolux Lily Moss & Bergamot Candle (Full Size £20) (link here!)
Cocolux Candles are hand poured in Australia and are 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 and this Lily Moss and Bergamot version smells beautiful. 

Candle lovers; you need to try these candles because I already own the Tonka Bean and Lime Zest version, thanks to MB once again and to have another one to add to my collection is giving me all the candle feels right now. This scent is very fresh and floral and gives the feeling of having spring cleaned your home then put fresh flowers into a vase. I love the weighty jar packaging of these candles and the fact that they have a screw top lid means you can transport them anywhere with you. 

Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You, OSKIA LIP BALM
4. Omorovicza Perfecting Lip Balm (Full Size £32(link here!)
A highly luxurious lip balm combining Shea Butter, Eucalyptus oil and Hyaluronic Spheres that gently tingles to revive and make your lips look fuller as well as nourish dry lips. Ideal as a base for lipstick or over the top to add some sheen and hydration to matte lipsticks. 

In my book, you can never have enough lip balms as I have tons yet use them all. I have three sat on my desk as we speak! Being the lipstick lover and wearer that I am, dry lips are never a good thing so to have a balm that shall keep that at bay is essential. I adore the texture of this one. It is really thick and creamy and not one of those that you have to warm your finger over a good few times to get the product out. It's a really rich balm (like ByTerry Balme de Rose) that instantly makes your lips feel like silk. It does tingle a little but in a nice way and just makes your lips looks really smooth. Again not the cheapest, but all adds the fact that Mintd Box is saving you a small fortune here. This one is definitely a handbag essential! 
Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You, ESTHECHOC BEAUTY CHOCOLATE
5. Esthechoc Beauty Chocolate (Super Deluxe Size £4(link here!)
Esthechoc is a revolutionary youth boosting 'smart chocolateclinically proven to improve skin healthAfter 10 years of research, Esthechoc was developed by Scientists at Cambridge, UK, Chocolate Technologies as the worlds first chocolate to protect against oxidative damageThis 'magic' chocolate contains highly concentrated natural ingredients such as Antioxidants, Polyphenols and Astaxanthin. These all provide protection, reduce inflammation, boost microcirculation and maintain healthy oxygen levels to the skin, which all results in healthy skin. One small 7.5g bar (38cal) has been proven apparently to reduce oxidative damage to the skin by 72%, a very high statistic! 

Now I was over the moon to see Esthechoc be a part of this month's Mintd Box because I am already a big fan as I reviewed them on the blog a few months back and it really does help! Myself and my lovely mother-in-law Christine are both big fans of the brand as she in fact has seen noticeable changes to her skin since eating the chocs! What ever magic this is, I dont' care because it's a dream. Read my full review here


Mintd Box, February, Love Letter to You
So, a ready made pamper session awaits you! I cannot get over how much value is in this box; I mean you can't even buy the pillowcase for this amount alone?! The stars of the show  this month for me have been the SLIP Pillowcase and the Cocolux Candle as they are both a recipe for making you feel good, but again I cannot fault anything I have tried here seeing as this month has seen repeats of brands that I currently use or have used so I have nothing but big love once again for these products.
