February Mintd Box, Love Struck
With the theme being all about Self-Love and Care which I think is ideal as I believe that we all need to think more about ourselves in today's busy world, this box is basically your romantic night in for one with a rose inspired theme. The contents shall all work to lift tensions, plump and hydrate your skin from head to toe and just help to make you feel special; because you are. 

So here are my full reviews of what awaits you ... 

February Mintd Box, Love Struck, African Botanics
1. AFRICAN BOTANICS Rose Treatment Essence, 15ml (Super Deluxe Size £45) (buy here!)
This is a stunning Rose Treatment Essence Gel that melts upon application to the skin and changes into a toner liquid consistency. The lightweight Gel is infused with pure Rose Flower Water, a CO2 extract of Rosa Centefolia to help your skin retain moisture as well as being brightening and helping to even out any redness or inflammation. It will also work to detoxify, tighten pores and hydrate the skin; doing the work of a toner .... and more. 

I knew I would love this product by the name alone as I love toners and essences such as this as they go that extra mile for your skin. I never not tone my skin and have a few favourites that I swear by yet essences are a little more rare. The gorgeous light gel texture transforms into this cooling water which just makes your skin instantly feel hydrated, soothed and very refreshed. The soft rose scent is the icing on the cake as all those things combined, make this one stunning and highly luxurious skincare step that shall only do good for your skin. I am imagining using this in the summer month's when the coolness and hydration of the gel will feel even more amazing. I love this product, which is just typical seeing as the full size retails for a very costly £140, but I would be tempted to invest having now tried it so I shall make the most of this incredible deluxe size which should last a good amount of time seeing as one pump is all that is needed. Toning the skin is such an important step to a skincare routine and this makes the task in hand so easy and fuss free as no cotton pads are needed! The best way to get your hands on this gem without breaking the bank too much is in this months box for sure as I feel this size is a rarity. 

February Mintd Box, Love Struck, Aromatherapy Associates Rose Body Gel
2. AROMATHERAPY ASSOCIATES Rose Hydrating Body Gel, 200ml (Full Size £37) (buy here!)
A highly luxurious body gel that is designed to offer hydration and comfort with its luxurious cooling gel texture. Using an array of A-List ingredients such as Rose, Geranium, Evening Promise and Jojoba essential oils this shall surely spoil your skin like nothing else. This is also safe for pregnant and breast feeding women.

So my orders are ... light your NEOM Candle, run an Aromatherapy Associates Oil Bath (with a glass of fizz/vino) and once you are out, apply this Body Gel and you have yourself the perfect 'switch off from the world' evening. Let me be clear; this is no ordinary body gel, this is a ritual in a tube. You will in fact be able to smell it through the packaging because the essential oils used are so pure which is why Aromatherapy Associates are my favourite aromatherapy brand ever. I have spoken about my love for them many a time here so I won't bore you further but just know that they really are the best of the best when it comes to aromatherapy body products. This lightweight, hydrating gel leaves your skin not only feeling smooth, hydrated and looking amazing but the scent shall last on your skin too. In fact your whole bathroom shall smell of it like mine does! This is that type of product that you only tend to buy as a gift for a friend and never just for yourself, so it's the perfect addition in this Self Love array of goodies from Mintd. 

February Mintd Box, Love Struck, NEOM Organics Candle
3. NEOM ORGANICS Complete Bliss Candle (Super Deluxe Size £16) (buy here!)
A highly luxurious, hand poured, 100% natural vegetable wax 'Scent to Relax and Calm' candle has been specially formulated with natural fragrance which not only smells incredible but has a proven effect to calm your mind and body. It uses a blend of 17 pure essential oils including Moroccan Blush Rose, Lime and Black Pepper which are notes you can smell straight out the box. In fact this candle won the Harpers Bazaar 'Best Candle for Relaxation' award 2018. 

If you read my reviews and blog often then you may already know that I am a huge fan of NEOM and bought their candles long before receiving them via Mintd Box. I had the Happiness candles burning at my wedding so this a brand that I shall always have a soft spot for. All I can say without gushing my heart our here is that if you have never tried them, please do or even better still, just grab this months Mintd Box! This one really does 100% relax your mind and body and who doesn't needs that? 

February Mintd Box, Love Struck, Magic Stripes Lifting Collagen Masks
4. MAGICSTRIPES Lifting Collagen Masks, x5 Masks (Full Size £39) (buy here!)
These are Lifting Collagen Masks that claim to work like a face liftwithout surgery. Each sheet mask is soaked with a cocktail of Collagen, Caffeine, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Macadamia nut Oil and Water to visibly lift, firm and tighten the skin on the lower face

How it Works  ... in the words of MagicStripes
Weakening elasticity of the skin causes wrinkles and tired-looking facial features and the lower half of the face is a particular problem area. The mask strengthens the skin in the lower half of the face and helps to lift and tighten this area, visibly defining and beautifying the facial contours. In addition to this effective blend of ingredients, the tensile force of the mask acts as a massage for the face and stimulates blood circulation. Similar to the effect of a facial massage, which with regular use also leads to lifting and tightening of the face.

February Mintd Box, Love Struck, Magic Stripes Lifting Collagen Masks
Huge claims don't you think? Well that is what I thought and being honest I thought to myself "this is surely a gimmick" even though I love the brand but to compare a mask to a face lift is major. So like everything I review, on it went! You basically attach the mask from ear to ear and it sits across your chin area ... as in the pictures above. Then wait for 40-60 minutes, so not  a mask to do in a hurry.

I even posted to my IG stories as I put the mask to the test to which I received a huge amount of DM's (albeit many friends laughing lol) but all intrigued to know the outcome. I sat for 1 hour with the mask on and it was not the most comfortable of mask to wear I have to say as it was very tight; so much it pulled on my ears but after a while you kind of get used to it; it did stick to my skin really well and never felt like it was coming away which is what you need to feel. It felt very cold and tingly and almost itchy which you would imagine would be the case considering all the work it is doing so I wasn't too alarmed. It felt cold the whole time it was on which was actually quite nice. 
February Mintd Box, Love Struck, Magic Stripes Lifting Collagen Masks
The Verdict
Can you believe it actually ..... WORKED.
I always find that with products that promise to deliver 'magic', have you questioning what you can see in the final result. This is why I asked my husband as he always gives an honest reply (annoyingly) because when I removed it I really did think my chin looked more of a V-Shape and very defined ... but I wasn't sure. Was I just lured into the sell?? It was only when my hubby said "OMG it's worked" that I knew. My jaw was very defined, almost like those jaw filler images all across IG and I was shocked. I'm not sure if it was the pressure of the mask or the ingredients within it but without a doubt, it worked and the changes were very visible. Now I don't know how 'long term' this result is because the instructions state that you use these masks 3/4 times per week and at £39 for 5, that is pretty expensive to keep up should the results need permanent application - but for a special occasion per say, these really made a visible change to my face that was visible the next day too. Obviously being in my late 30s this may not be the case for all, but for my face, they really did work and I am really did not expect them to make a visible difference as they did.  I am still a tad shocked that they did, so I can't wait to use the rest of the box now! (Sorry I have no pics but next time I use it I shall post some up). Let me know if you have used them ever as I would love to compare thoughts.

February Mintd Box, Love Struck, ILA Spa
5. ILA SPA Body Balm For Feeding Skin & Senses (Super Deluxe Size £16) (buy here!)
This unique beauty gem is a unisex Body Balm with a rich, waxy, set butter like texture and contains highly luxuriously ingredients that make this a 'magic' balm. It contains Omega 3,6 & 9 which acts as an anti-inflammatory, Rose Geranium which helps to balance your mind and body (once again) and essential Fatty Acids and Anti-oxidants to restore skin suppleness. All in all this should have a positive effect on your senses as well as conditioning your body. what more could you want in a body balm really?

Thanks to Mintd Box I have used this before and I am hooked. This body balm is absolutely beautiful and I am so thankful to have another jar back in my life! You shall fall in love with this as soon as you smell it let me tell you as the Rose Geranium is so enticing and once you apply it to your body you shall smell and feel amazing all day long .. that is when you become in it for the long haul, trust me here. The balm seems hard in the pot just like set butter but as soon as you warm it up in your palms it transforms into a soothing balm, making dry skin feel instantly nourished, comforted and relieved. With more intense skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, scar tissue and severe dryness this shall work wonders. Sadly it isn't cheap but do know that it is 100% worth the buy. You can alternate between this and the Aromatherapy Associates Gel depending on your skin needs. 

February Mintd Box, Love Struck
All products have been stars for me this month but I have to give my main star to the MagicStripes Lifting Collagen Masks as I really wasn't expecting the results that occurred.

What product has you a bit heart-eyed? 💕
Happy Valentines Day all - lots of love 

February is a month that focuses hugely on Valentines Day, so we are surrounded with flowers, chocolates, perfume, champagne and so on ... yet I for one believe that every day should be a day to show that you love someone which doesn't always mean with material items either; but let's not deny that getting spoilt is always welcomed. You can't beat some good old fashioned romance and speaking of which, did you know that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert made perfumes for each other as a symbol of their love for another? It is this romantic tale which led me to fall in love with one of the most luxurious fragrance brands in the world who are responsible for those royal scents in question. I am currently obsessed with The Crown (on Netflix) so I just had to share this one in a post! 

One of the hardest blogging tasks is describing fragrance; getting your excitement and love across in writing isn't easy because for me a fragrance is a memory, a feeling, a way of life and it just becomes you. Anyone that wears fragrance has their own signature, the scent we want people around us to recognise us by. It is no secret that I am a huge fine fragrance fan and I look for scents that are unique and no one else has. there is nothing more satisfying than being complimented on your scent, it's just a feel good factor! 

In this huge industry there is premium and there is premium. I'm now talking about a brand that is classed as the 'most expensive in the world'; so what does expensive really smell like? Just think what Chanel is to the handbag world and Dom Pérignon is to the Champagne World, Clive Christian is that to the Perfumery world. A fragrance fit for Royalty ... quite literally.

Clive Christian Perfume
This is in fact a brand whose background revolves around LOVE as each scent offers up one masculine and one feminine take on that same fragrance to simply compliment each other.

Clive Christian was established in 1999, England and is the world's leading independent perfume house with all perfumes containing between 20-25% pure perfumeThe brand’s predecessorthe Crown Perfumery Company established in 1872, is the only house ever to have been granted permission to use Queen Victoria’s crown on its bottles; an image that defines every bottle of Clive Christian perfume to this day. This British perfume house has designed many sought after fragrances and their famous  'No1' scent was in fact considered to be the most expensive perfume in the world back in 2001 and 2006. It sells for a whopping $2,150/€1894 per ounce and is still top of that list today. 

Clive Christian Perfume
The first time I discovered the brand Clive Christian was in my favourite perfumery store in Cannes called Taizo Perfumery and as you can readily imagine they have so many luxury brands that are truly unique and very extra. I remember inhaling every scent in the store though it was in fact my husband that fell in love with a Clive Christian perfume. However, I now feel like Valentines Day has come early and I have a (not-so) secret admirer as I was very kindly sent over this incredible Travel set by Clive Christian themselves to showcase just how special they are.

Clive Christian Perfume

Clive Christian Perfume
This brings me on to explain why Clive Christian perfumes have 'pairings'. In ode to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert who made perfumes for each other as a symbol of their love for one another, many of the brands scents are created in matching pairs so that they offer a complimentary interpretation for him and her; yet still being the same perfume. Hence you have the 'Feminine' side and the 'Masculine' side but you can of course choose to wear which ever side you prefer. The perfumes can also all be layered up in which ever way you like.

As you can see, each lid of every bottle is in fact a crown and as I mentioned above, back in 1872 the brands predecessor Crown Perfumery catered for high society in London and Queen Victoria was so impressed by the perfumes that she allowed an image of her crown to be used for the cap of the bottle. As Clive Christian took over, the crown stopper still applies and symbolises the brands British quality and excellence. He has stuck to the same values by cutting no corners unlike a lot of other brands today that do so to lower costs but with a brand like this, it shall forever be opulent and extravagantClive Christian was in fact made an OBE in 2012 for services to luxury goods as the design of the bottle takes as much work as its contents.

Clive Christian Perfume
TRAVEL SET ORIGINAL COLLECTION, Feminine £195 3x10ml (also available in Masculine) here!
This is a perfect starter set that allows you take your scent with you wherever you go and gives you a mix of intense feminine perfumes containing a miniature 1872, No1 and X. Each 10ml bottle has the same intensity and concentration (20%) as the 50/100ml sizes but allows you discover which scent you love more. Obviously all fragrances are parfum and not a toilette. 

• 1872 - Citrus Floral (30ml £135 - 50ml £225 - 100ml £350) here!
A floral, fruity citrus that combines clean crisp top notes with the intense bouquet of Rose de Mai, one of the rarest ingredients in nature. This is fresh, light and a perfect summer perfume that shall make you feel like you are sitting in the French Riviera. 

• No1 - Floral Oriental (30ml £295 - 50ml £450) here!
The most expensive of them all, with top notes of Mirabelle Plum, White Peach and Bergamot which slowly reveal Jasmine, Carnation and Rose. This one is a rich, elegant, sophisticated scent that has an old fashioned feel to it but with a modern intake. I feel 'enchanting' is an ideal word to use here and a great choice for evenings and winter months. 

• X - Chypre Floral (30ml £135 - 50ml £225 - 100ml £350) here!
Exotic Chypre and Egyptian Jasmine make this exotic alongside Bergamot, Mandarin, Rhubarb, Cashmere and Cedarwood. This is such a unique scent which really takes me back to scents worn in my younger years. It feels very chic, sexy, modern and ideal for day or night. This may just be my new favourite. 

Clive Christian Perfume
Clive Christian Perfume
All three scents are beautiful and so very different from each other which is what makes this travel set a perfect idea should you want to get to know the brand. I personally tend to gravitate towards floral, oriental, powdery, spicy kind of notes in a fragrance so it's been a tough call choosing between X and No1, but I think that X feels more like me, hence it is surely my favourite.

Clive Christian Perfum

Clive Christian Perfume
Like Victora and Albert, I am in love. I feel some brands compromise on quality when it comes to making smaller sized sets but here you have a stunning black case which oozes luxury yet is still very lightweight and portable. The perfume bottles themselves are like my very own crown jewels being so luxurious and weighty and so beautiful to look at which makes them highly collectible. These 10ml bottles are the perfect size for any handbag (and look very at home in my Chanel) and definitely cause attention when you pull them out to use .... although I may save these ones for special occasions!

The perfume itself is very intense and being of a high concentration you don't need to use much which in turn means they will last on your skin all day and all night as I could in fact still smell it on my clothing the next day. Everything from the packaging, the design, the bottle .... is just exquisite. For me they are a symbol of British culture at its best and being British myself, I feel very honoured and special each time I wear them. 

Clive Christian Perfume
I love that Clive Christian make sample packs because this is a perfume that you need to wear on your skin before making your decision and the sample packs are just as luxurious as you can see from above where I have a few other scents to try out. 

The Travel Set is the ultimate unique gift for anyone - male or female - or an even better gift for yourself. 

Clive Christian Perfume
Obviously there is that luxury price tag due to the high concentration of these perfumes, but for those who are really into their fragrance (like me) and strive to find something unique and individual, will definitely find it within this family. Clive Christian Fragrances in my opinion are worth every single penny as they are so much more than just a scent as the story tells you.

Clive Christian Perfume
In addition to their classic collection, Clive Christian have a new line named Addictive Arts which uses pioneering perfume technology inspired by mood enhancing ingredients and the thrill and rush of hedonism. Not for the faint hearted as they retail for an impressive £525 (75ml) ... so I guess I need to go investigate.

Clive Christian fragrances are available to buy online here and are stocked in some of the worlds most luxurious stores including Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Net-a-Porter, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales; also available across the USA, Europe, Australia, Russia and the Middle East.

A big thank the Clive Christian team for this wonderful opportunity to be able to tell you all about an incredible brand who have captured my heart entirely.

Please do let me know your thoughts!

* Travel Set was Gifted from the brand for review.
* Not sponsored.

A new year, a new month and possibly a new you. Nothing transforms your mood more than having your skin feeling at it's best and Mintd Box have once again delivered an array of A-List brands that are nothing less than perfect. With this said, good skin does go hand in hand with what you put into your body, so a healthy balanced diet and plenty of water will make even more of a change, so that part is up to you but at least you can rest assured that your skin will be well and truly looked after on the outside.

Now I am not a fan of making New Years Resolutions because I feel it's automatically setting yourself up for a fall and it's easier to set monthly goals for yourself like 'get a new night cream' or 'exfoliate twice a week without fail' .... then these little actions turn into bigger ones like 'getting good skin'. 

This month's Skincare Resolutions themed Mintd Box shall help massively should you be looking for some new products to incorporate into your daily routine or perhaps you need to start one. The contents promise to rejuvenate, brighten, refine and reveal new skin and I think we are all in need of that at any time of the year.

The value and saving this month is not to be missed out on!! 

Skincare Resolutions, Mintd Box January 
This box provides you with all the tools you need for a better skincare routine and sets the bar so you can follow on throughout the year doing good for you and your skin. 

I do try and test these boxes as much in advance of them launching as possible so I can give you not only a review of the box but of each individual item too as some of you may just like the sound of one product perhaps. As soon as I saw that there was a full sized Omorovicza Night Cream inside this month (being such a huge fan of the brand) I was elated and this was straight on my face. 

So the results are in and off we go ..... 

Skincare Resolutions, Mintd Box January, Sunday Riley CEO Serum
1. SUNDAY RILEY CEO Flash Brightening Serum, 15ml (Super Deluxe Size £35) (link here!)
A daily concentrated super serum that offers your skin a whole lot of brightening benefits of Vitamin C to even out an array of complexions whilst fighting the visible effects of ageing like crows feet, dullness and uneven skin tone. The serum is formulated with 15% Vitamin C but one that is oil-soluble so it doesn't oxidise like other Vitamin C serums so you can use this during the day time, night time ..  whenever you like and need a brightening glow! 

So after having used this a few times now I think I have found my ultimate Vitamin C Serum because this has truly been a delight to have in my skincare routine. I now feel annoyed at Mintd Box for making me fall in love as I know I shall want the full size once this one runs out, hahah! In the past I have been put off using Vitamin C serums because of their awful copper coin scent that I just couldn't get past, but this one smells so good, like fresh citrus oranges and it's a dream. I love that you are able to use this serum both day and night as I always hated being restricted to just night time use with others as they were always affected by sunlight hence you couldn't use them during the day. The creamy lotion sinks into the skin nicely leaving it feeling hydrated with a healthy glow which then creates a nice dewy base for your next skincare product. For me the texture is a dream and it didn't feel tacky on my skin, but you know you have product on so just don't over do the application; one pump will be plenty. Don't forget, being a serum this is designed to go under your moisturiser so it won't be the final finish and does in fact  absorb better being layered under other skincare products.

The brightening effects were instant as my skin looked super healthy after having applied this serum and only time will tell if it works on the other signs of ageing. I don't have any pigmentation so I cannot comment on that aspect but I feel this is one of the best Vitamin C serums I have tried because I know just how good Sunday Riley is as a brand. Their Luna Oil is a little miracle in a bottle (review here) and I know that I shall want to keep this CEO serum in my skincare routine so I definitely recommend it a million times over should you be needing a good serum in your skincare routine that will give you fast visible results.

Plus a full 30ml size retails for £70 so this is the perfect way to check if you like it first and get three other full sized products too!

Skincare Resolutions, Mintd Box January, Omorovizca Night Cream
Skincare Resolutions, Mintd Box January, Omorovizca Night Cream
2. OMOROVICZA Rejuvenating Night Cream, 50ml (Full size £110) (link here!)
This night cream is a deeply hydrating, reparative treatment that works with natural extracts, minerals from the Hungarian thermal waters and the 'hydro mineral transference system' (invented by Omorovicza). In real terms, this is a system that enhances the body's ability to recognise a good thing; like peptides, vitamins, minerals etc etc to cheat your way to having good skin. So while you sleep this cream is acting to undo any of the day's damage by building collagen and elastin to keep the skin supple. It holds a host of many ingredients such as Apple pectin to hydrate and retain moisture, plum almond oil to protect, wild carrot - Vit A - to boost collagen and hazelnut peptides to firm and lift. 

As soon as I opened up this luxurious glass jar I knew I was going to love this cream as Omorovicza is a brand that impresses me more and more with each new product that I try. First off the scent; like a buttery, almond, marshmallow that for me is heaven sent. My skin is normal/combination and the formula was spot on being not too heavy and just super luxurious and creamy, like your are wrapping your skin up in a comfort blanket. This really is luxury skincare at it's best for any night time routine. It feels super creamyintensely hydrating, non sticky and soaks into skin beautifully. For me this really adds the hydration and nourishment that my skin needs in this colder climate yet I feel it may be too rich for the summer months so definitely a winter skin product for normal/combination skins yet dry skins will adore this all year round. You just feel that you really are feeding your skin with goodness and putting it to bed in the most beneficial way. I still can't believe the value for money of having this full size inside this months box - you really need to get your hands on it fast should this sound like a cream for you. I shall of course keep you updated the more I use it!

Skincare Resolutions, Mintd Box January, Su-Man Refining Polish
3. SU-MAN Refining Facial Polish, 125ml (Full Size £38) (link here!)
This is gentle gel-like facial exfoliator ideal for all skin types containing watermelon, papaya and ginkgo biloba leaf extracts to gently revive and renew dull looking skin without being a harsh physical exfoliant. This gorgeous blend of ingredients help to fight free radicals, work as an anti-imflammatory and promote cell regeneration. Not your average exfoliator!

"Skincare should be a ritual, not a chore. Life changes your skin, now change your skin for life" - Su-man.

I have in fact already tried this product thanks to a previous Mintd Box last year and is in full use in my skincare basket as we speak! It lasts such a long time and has in fact become one of my favourite manual exfoliators so I am thrilled to have a back up. I personally love this brand as the Su-Man Velvet Brightening Serum has to one of my all time favourite serums and if you are new to Su-Man skincare, then this polish is a great place to start. I have to mention how great the packaging is as the twist up cap allows you to distribute the right amount of gel with no mess. Little things like this make all the difference to you using a product don't you think? I love the soft scent of this exfoliator and when you massage the gel into your skin it creates tiny particles that gently buff away all the dead skin cells making your skin look brighter instantly. This really is a simple step to add into your routine 2 x week and will take your skin from dry, dull and lack lustre to soft, smooth and brighter. This really is a product that all skins will benefit from using. 

Skincare Resolutions, Mintd Box January, APA Beauty Lip Loofah
4. APA BEAUTY Lip Exfoliator, 11.4g (Full Size £16) (link here!)
A two-in-one lip scrub that has been designed to exfoliate and moisturise your lips in the most gentle and luxurious of ways. Sugar and Sweet Almond Seed are used to exfoliate and Jojoba OilShea Butter and Orange Peel are used to soothe and hydrate. 

Thanks to Mintd Box I am already very familiar with this product and has since become my secret weapon to any dry lip crisis. I recommend this all the time to anyone that asks about dry lips as it simply works wonders. This is not just another lip scrub; the formula is insanely luxurious and it cures dryness after just a few uses. The scent/taste is just like chocolate orange and the sugar particles are powerful enough to remove all the dry skin whilst the balm is so hydrating and comforting on your lips as we all know how sore having dry lips can be. In fact I rarely suffer with dry lips as I use balms very day but on one occasion last year they just became flaky and sore and I could not even wear lipstick as they looked so bad. No other balm seemed to cure it but then the Mintd gods sent me Apa Beauty Lip Loofah and in just a few uses, my lips were back to normal, hence I now swear by it. If the cold has you are suffering and you desperately need a cure .... then here is your answer!
