MINTD Box: Holiday Prep In A Box

Mintd Box, May 2017 (2).JPG

Summer’s just around the corner and the May 2017 edition of MINTD Box has just arrived on my doorstep! This month’s box is all about ‘Holiday Beauty Prep’, making sure that your skin is summer-ready and soft.  It’s crammed full of luxurious skincare products, all handpicked because they actually work and make a difference.

Mintd Box, May 2017 (1)

I am a big fan of presentation, packaging and experience, and unboxing MINTD Box is always an absolute pleasure.  All the products are carefully placed into the box to ensure there are no spills during transit:

Neatly packaged inside the box are five innovative and high-end beauty products:

Kahina Essaouira Body Serum, £32

This luxurious body serum goes on as soon as you come out the shower and smells amazing.  Scented with a blend of pure steam distilled essential oils, Essaouira Body Serum is a fresh, crisp fragrance combining sophisticated floral notes with a hint of the exotic. Rose, lavender, herbaceous geranium & sandalwood provide a soft floral scent while Petitgrain lifts and brightens. It’s the perfect scent for summer and leaves my skin baby soft.

Miller Harris Lumiere Doree Body Wash, £24

This body wash is perfect in the mornings, the scent is very energising and uplifting. It leaves you squeaky clean, ready to take on the day, and because it’s soap-free, there’s no dryness or irritation. It’s a firm new introduction to my morning beauty regime.

Soveral Mandarin Lip Balm, £17

Summer lips should always be kissable and with ultra nourishing mango & cocoa butter, and the stimulating power of mandarin peel, this vitamin packed balm ensures the delicate skin on your lips remains in pristine condition.  Mandarin essential oil helps cell growth and has a delicious and refreshing aroma. This formula is aimed at healing and protecting your lips so that when you are not using it you still have a perfect pout.

Patchology Posh Peel Pedi, £32

As a yoga teacher, I spend a lot of time barefoot, which means lots of scrubbing and food maintenance! With one 60 minute Patchology Pedi treatment, I can send calluses packing and tell dead skin to hit the road.  Patchology’s activating essence is an advanced AHA + BHA botanical blend featuring glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids. These three potent ingredients work together to deeply exfoliate and soften the surface – speeding up cell turnover and encouraging dead skin to slough off. As an added bonus, botanical extracts brighten you up!  Note: Patchology recommends you pre-soak clean feet for 15-20 minutes before your PoshPeel™ treatment for improved fluid absorption, especially on heavily callused feet.

Lauren B Botanical Nail Treatment, £78

The Nail & Cuticle Balm is a rich hydrator and absorbs instantly to restore parched, straggly cuticles to their prime. The advanced amino acid complex and biotin promotes healing; sweet almond oil, mango & shea butter, and Vitamin E add moisture; and beeswax creates a water-resistant barrier for extra protection. The click-pen applicator is perfect for dotting on throughout the day. The brush applicator can be used at the base of cuticles, additionally, it won’t affect your nail polish if you’re wearing it.  The Nail Growth Serum is ideal for fragile, brittle nails that refuse to grow.  The sheer blend of amino acids, antioxidants, Vitamins E and C, peptides and biotin sinks in instantly to boost natural nail growth and strength.

This month’s MINTD Box contents has a combined retail value of £183, however, by ordering with MINTD Box, it will cost you just £65.  On top of that, UK delivery is free and worldwide delivery is free on your first order.

Finally, if you’re a fan of this month’s box, keep an eye out for future MINTD boxes each month because they are always seasonally themed and curated from high end brands that are stocked in Harvey Nichols, Net A Porter & Space.NK.  Head on over to the MINTD Box website to order yours!
