Gone are the days when natural beauty products were boring, had no real luxury feel about them and smelt quite funky. Those days are long gone and opting for natural, clean ingredients instead of chemical is no longer a compromise. As part of my job I obviously test out a lot of brands whether they are natural or not and for me I really don't mind because if it works well and my skin loves it, I'm all in. 

But just like our eating habits, today we all want choice; vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free, meat free and so on .... the good thing is that options are there and it is the same with skincare. You may be sensitive to certain ingredients or you may just want to live cleaner or you may just simply fall in love with a product regardless! Whatever the reason, we are very lucky to have to it all at our fingertips.

If you like your beauty products to be free from synthetic ingredients, additives, toxins and all nasties and seek a more natural feel then you'll surely love the products within this post.  Plus, if you are looking for the ultimate Mothers Day Gift that will well and truly spoil the mother in question, I have it right here.

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit
It is all about promoting beautiful skin with wholesome ingredients. So let's celebrate being 'au natural' .... 

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit
Sidenote: As soon as I saw that Votary London Cleansing Oil was included in this months box, I knew it would be an instant hit as this has been on my wish list for some time now having fallen head over heels in love with their facial oils ..... so this was the item I tried out first! 

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit, Votary London Cleansing Oil
Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit, Votary London Cleansing Oil
1. Votary Rose Geranium and Apricot Cleansing Oil, 100ml (Full Size £45) (buy here!)
Votary London creates the most luxurious premium plant oils that deliver amazing anti-aging benefits without sitting on top of the skin like a lot of mineral oils can. This Cleansing Oil is cult to the brand and is made from 100% natural apricot and jojoba oils suitable for all skin types with a stunning rose geranium and chamomile fragrance. It comes with a wash cloth and breaks down make-up, removes sunscreens and cleanses the skin with little effort, and all without stripping the skin of hydration. 

This has 100% lived up to the hype and was even better than I knew it would be. The scent is the first thing to grab you which is heaven! This alone has a lovely calming effect which makes it an ideal 'evening' cleanser. I love oil cleansers and this is very different to others I have by the fact that it doesn't turn into a milk when you add water and instead stays as an oil which is why it has been designed to be used with the face cloth included so you get the maximum benefit that this oil has to offer your skin. It left my skin feeling soft, smooth and perfectly cleansed without any tight feeling. This really does look after your skin and will be an oil that I would most certainly re-purchase. In fact, the Votary Jasmine and Rose Facial Oil has become essential to my skincare routine now thanks to a previous Mintd box introduction. This brand is proof that clean beauty is anything but boring, in fact it's the ultimate in luxury cleansing! I know Votary is a more expensive range but for the amount of time the products last, it really is great value for money and in that respect makes them affordable. If you haven't tried Votary and love your oils, I suggest you get ordering right away because I guarantee you'll never look back. 

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit, Oilixia Facial Oil
2. Oilixia Amazonian Cacay Facial Oil, 30ml (Full Size £48) (buy here!)
This gorgeous Facial Oil was inspired by the natural wonders of the Amazon Rainforest and features Cacay oil from Columbia which has 3x more retinol than Rosehip oil and more Vitamin E and F than Argan Oil, making this some potion! The Cacay oil is blended with Acai, Amazonian Lily to detox, Brazil nut to nourish and Buriti to promote skin cell renewal.

Oilixia are such a unique clean brand as their Gummy Cleanser is just amazing and unlike anything else out there (here). The gorgeous scent of this oil is nice and subtle and not too overpowering. Having used this a few times now I was pleasantly surprised at how lightweight this oil was as it really absorbed into my skin well, with no heavy feel so if you hate facial oils feeling greasy then this is the one for you! It leaves the skin more matte than shiny yet it feels soft and smooth without any residue whatsoever. For this reason, it is perfect to add into your make-up should you want to use it as a base or add in a few drops of oil into your foundation for a more dewy look, whilst treating your skin at the same time. I feel the more I use this oil, the more I shall see visible results so I shall strive to keep you posted on that, but this is a facial oil for glow, glow glow!

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit, Dafna Eye Care
3. Dafna Beyond Skin Deep Eye Care, 20ml (Full Size £50) (buy here!)
Dafna, aka the woman behind the brand, lives and works in Madrid and has always had a passion for going natural, being an aromatherpist, naturopathist and cosmetics formulator and has held courses and workshops in London, Tel Aviv and Madrid. For the brand, each of their products is a feeling, a wellness and experience; an ethos that I love. All products in this line do not contain parabens, mineral oils, paraffin, Vaseline, petrolatum, silicones, SLG and other artificial ingredients. NO ingredients derived from animals, allergens, dyes, synthetic preservatives or synthetic fragrances.

Having tried many skin care brands in my time, there are still many more that I am still yet to try of course and I get asked about eye products the most so trying to think of a great natural alternative really gets me stumped so I am so thrilled to be able to add a new recommendation to the list. This eye treatment is a gel-like serum packed with pure oils, Hyaluronic acid and Tense'Up TM pioneer biotechnology. It is enriched with Rosehip Oil and Calendula oil which is what makes it smell so nice and helps to reduce the look of fine lines and and puffiness. I will say, I was not expecting this to be as good as it is! It feels like a dream on the eyes and is the perfect 'evening comfort' and the perfect morning 'wake me up' all rolled into one bottle. It works so well to hydrate and comfort your eyes any time needed. I am thoroughly loving using this in my daily routine and shall keep you all up to date on the long term effects the more I use it. If you are looking for a lightweight product that shall help with hydration, first signs of ageing, fine lines, puffiness and is nasty free...  then this is a perfect one to opt for. 

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit, Ila Spa
Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit, Ila Spa
4. ILA SPA Body Balm Scrub (Super Deluxe Size £15)
ILA SPA have created an ultimate in luxury body scrubs. The salt scrub uses; Himalayan Salt crystals and oils to exfoliate, Argan oil in balm form which rich in essential fatty acids and antioxidants, Rose Geranium which balances the mind and body, Rose Otto to nourish, Sandalwood & Patchouli to balance the mind and Jasmine & Rose to restore the nervous system. Who said that natural wasn't powerful?! That is some mighty blend right there. 

This is such a cute size that is very portable should you want to travel with one yet it shall still have your mind and body feeling amazing. This scrub leaves behind a gentle layer of oil that has you feeling hydrated and protected. The scent shall have all your senses feeling all happy as it is out of this world to breathe in. However dry your skin is or sensitive even, this shall contribute to helping to cure those issues as well as eczema and psoriasis. When I read that it also contributes to helping hormonal balances too I was sold (lol!) This is that type of product that you would not necessarily buy for yourself so this is a great little added gift and trial size to make you feel extra special. I also highly recommend their body balm  as that is simply a dream in a jar! (here).

Mintd Box, Clean Beauty Edit
This is your ready made 'clean' skincare routine set up right here. You could definitely use all three skincare items together in a simple everyday routine and see the results of a 'free from' regime - inside and out. I have to say the selection this month has really opened my own eyes to how natural brands really are incredible today and how far the clean beauty market has come. It will of course work differently for each and every one of us depending on what issues we have to work on but these products shall work to take great care of your skin without adding any nasties into your body. 

Once again, I truly have loved everything inside this month's box especially a few stars  being the Votary London Cleansing Oil as like I said, it was just as lovely as I knew it would be and the beautiful Dafna Eye Cream being such a welcomed discovery and even better to see natural brands making such high end skincare that give visible results. 

Like I said at the start, way not gift it should you know someone who would love this? (Mothers Day!)
