It’s my favourite time of the month – Mintd Box time and this month we have the Mintd Box Goodnight Edit which is music to my ears. Living with a chronic illness means sleep is super important to me, so I love anything to make my evening routine and going to bed that little bit nicer. For some reason I always prefer my nighttime skincare regime and I like the fact that my skin can repair itself as I sleep.
Mintd Box are my favourite beauty subscription box by a mile and they always include gorgeous products. I love the fact that they include some of my favourite skincare brands and the quality is always high.
As winter approaches and we awaken to not so bright mornings and return to even darker evenings, summer and all its glory can seem like a distant memory. With the changing season sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth.
As you switch off and settle down to sleep, your skin wakens for a busy night of cellular renewal and damage repair of environmental onslaught from the day. This sleep edit is carefully curated with bedtime saviours to regenerate, heal, purify and redeliver minerals into the skin, whilst promoting collagen production and DNA repair during sleep.
So it’s goodnight from us …
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil
I love Sunday Riley with a passion and Luna has been a staple in my skincare regime for quite a while. This is the second time I’ve received it in a Mintd Box and I am not complaining – this product has to be in my life forever.
If you’re looking for a night oil to reduce the appearance of pores, slow down wrinkles and help with the loss of elasticity then look no further. Luna is a trans-retinoid acid containing Blue Tansy which has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antihistamine properties leaving your skin soothed and redness reduced. It also contains cold-pressed Avocado, Chia and Grape Seed oils and leaves your skin looking and feeling amazing. If you’ve never tired Luna then you really need to.
Omorovicza Refining Facial Polish
Omorovicza are another brand that pop up regularly in Mintd Box and they are so lovely to use. I’m fast becoming a huge fan of this brand and hope to try more from them soon.
This facial polish contains Hungarian Moor Mud and works to brighten the skin tone and refine the texture of the skin. It contains a natural pumice that exfoliates the skin of dead cells encouraging regeneration of the skin. Extracts refine the complexion, micro-algae eliminates oxidised proteins to improve radiance, and Copper Gluconate regulates sebum production. Overall, this is a multi-tasking marvel that really works.
Aromatherapy Associates Light Relax Bath & Shower Oil
I always like to take a nice relaxing bath before I go to bed and often use Aromatherapy Associates in my bath to help me relax. My only trouble is that there are some evening when I almost fall asleep in the bath and that’s never good!
This bath oil is gorgeous and contains Ylang Ylang, Lavender and Petitgrain to help you unwind at the end of the day. As well as using some of the oil in the bath itself, I also massage in into my skin. Take the time to inhale in the scent as the aromatherapy properties will help you to relax and destress, leaving you ready for a peaceful night’s sleep.
Amly Botanicals Beauty Sleep Face Mist
The final product in the Mintd Box Goodnight edit is this gorgeous face mist. I have a lot of face mists and I love them – they’re a quick and easy way to deliver ingredients to the skin and leave you feeling refreshed.
This claims to be youth-inducing (yay!) and it promotes natural healing sleep that repairs DNA and boost collagen production. The mist is a silver-rich spring water and is full of botanicals for rejuvenation and essential oils that have beautifying and soporific properties. Natural bio-active compounds also turn on the skin’s longevity genes. I’ve been spraying this all over my face, neck and even my pillow and I absolutely love it.
