Spring Cleaning with MINTD Box


Spring is finally here and not only will I be spring cleaning my house, but I have already started spring cleaning my skin with the help of this month’s exclusive ‘Spring Clean’ themed MINTD Box.

The Spring Clean edit promises to help my skin transition from winter to spring.  As spring starts to creep in on us and we start to adapt to warmer temperatures & increased humidity, it’s important to incorporate new products within our beauty regime to help our skin adapt to the climate shift.

Opening my MINTD Box:

Inside the Spring Clean MINTD Box is a luxurious selection of cleansing & nourishing skin products:

  1. Oilixia Australian Kakadu Plum Gummy Facial Cleanser (£24)
  2. Su-Man Velvet Skin Brightening Serum (£98)
  3. Patchology SmartMud Masques (£24)
  4. Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream (£40)

The Oilixia Australian Kakadu Plum Gummy Facial Cleanser is amazing, it features Kakadu Plum extract from Australia’s Kimberley region. It’s one of the best natural sources of antioxidant vitamin C, it’s also rich in phenolic acid, it gently exfoliates skin for a brighter appearance and smoother texture. Best of all, it’s really fun to use – it is applied to dry skin, massaged in and tapped on (the pressing and lifting action creates suction on the skin).   After you’ve tapped all over your face, you then add a little water and the cleanser becomes soft and milky, which can then be rinsed off, leaving a light veil of nourishing oils to help protect skin (no post-wash tightness!).


The Su-Man Velvet Skin Brightening Serum, really does do what it says on the box and a little of the serum goes a long way.  Elle magazine describes the serum as “liquid rose-petals”, it delivers a heavenly boost of radiance, comfort and velvet softness. The signature potent blend of antioxidants, hyaluronic and traexamic acids, omegas, ceramides and dragon’s blood extract invigorates the skin, helping diminish the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles. My skin looked and felt lovely after using this serum.


The Patchology SmartMud Masques are the mess-free alternative to a traditional mud mask.  They eliminate environmental toxins, dirt and dullness in one clean step!  The mineral-rich volcanic ash combined with innovative FlexMasque™ Technology gets the purifying properties of mud right where you want them (on your face) and not where you don’t (all over your sink). It’s the neatest way to clear up your complexion and clean out pore-clogging debris without the dry, tight feel of a traditional mud mask. You’re left with a healthy, youthful glow.


Finally, the Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream is an anti-aging multivitamin for your skin!  This innovative moisture cream deeply hydrates to maintain a healthy complexion day and night. It’s lightweight enough for daytime wear, but also delivers regenerative hydration overnight. It contains Tula’s signature probiotic technology to leave skin nourished and balanced.

After a wonderfully long pampering session using all of the products in the box, my skin was looking and feeling radiant. I feel like I’ve rinsed away any dull winter skin, and unveiled a brighter and more glowing complexion, ready for the summer!

The items in this month’s MINTD Box  are all stocked in Harrods, Net A Porter & Selfridges, and with a combined value of £186  this month’s box has enormous savings of £121 and can be yours for just £65!
