I am not a fan of subscriptions, especially for beauty boxes. I tend to buy one-off beauty boxes like the Beauty Expert one, or the Cult Beauty one commissioned by Huda Beauty, or the Latest in Beauty ones, but only if they take my fancy or have enough full size products in them that I am likely to use. Some of the other beauty boxes have paltry sample sizes in them which makes me feel cheated.
So, Mintd have managed to wow me, twice now, and I am telling you, in fact beseeching you, to give these guys a go. You can buy them as a one-off after subscribers have been replenished 🙂 , or subscribe – they have a bi-monthly subscription option, which helps commitment-phobes (it’s almost as if they have designed it for me) to feel less like it’s a commitment. It is £70 every other month, which equates to £35 a month (a much easier pill to swallow). It is ruddy good value! The first month (November last year) was a bumper and this month’s isn’t any different.
Each box has a theme, and this one is all about recharging…
l-r top row we have:
Sunday Riley’s C.E.O. C+E micro-dissolve cleansing oil, which to you and me means a cleanser tough enough to take off make-up, whilst brightening skin and de-clogging pores. I love Sunday Riley, although her face oils are super pricey.
Quinteassential’s cleanse tea, inspired by Morocco, contains cinnamon, ginger, dates, pepper malt, cacao beans (yum a chocolate fix!), and cardamom- a combination easily able to warm us up during these cold January days. I’m popping a brew on now!
Rodial’s dragon’s blood hyaluronic mask perfectly complements their velvet cream from November’s box. That moisturiser seems to work all day long, I don’t get back from work with dehydration lines on my forehead or around my eyes… I have high hopes for this mask. I am a super-fan of Rodial!
l-r bottom row we have:
Scentered’s escape therapy balm, with exotic smelling oud, frankincense and sandalwood, blended into a balm made of moringa and shea butter, is designed to inspire and balance. I’ve swiped some on the inside of my wrists and on my neck, and am now surrounded by the scent. They claim creativity and action will follow… let’s see 🙂
Ann Semonin’s express radiance ice cubes give skin a blast of cold with the wild indigo stimulating the release of endorphins, so getting you ready for a night out, apparently. I have popped some in the freezer to give it a go. It’s an age old trick – applying something cold to skin to temporarily tighten it, so I’m not sure what else this can do for the £50 price tag.
Check them out for yourself, and if you’re hesitant about committing to a subscription, then you can still buy their boxes in their gift store, although the latest one isn’t on sale until much later, plus the price you pay is more than the subscription price. I’ve used everything from the November box, and will use everything from this month’s, so they come highly recommended. And no, this is not an ad or sponsored post 🙂
