In case you haven’t heard of them yet, Pestle & Mortar are an Irish-based skincare brand. They initially caught my attention due to their minimalistic approach to skincare as well as their chic packaging. The company prides itself on a capsule range of skincare products mixing together both science and nature. Beauty products are so complicated these days with so many steps and so many life-changing promises… it’s refreshing to find a brand with an ultra-minimalist style that’s purely based on driven results and efficacy.
Some of the most frequently asked questions I receive are 1. What are my favourite skincare products? 2. What are my most used skincare products, and 3. What products do I use to achieve the healthy glow I currently have? So I thought I would share on here the routine I followed all summer, starting with my morning routine as it was the most consistent. I did test out other products from time to time but always came back to these products. During the day I tend to focus mostly on hydration and blemish control in the summer and exfoliation and more targeted treatments in the colder months. This is why my skincare routine can change depending on the season and how my skin is at that time. I don’t think it is any one particular product alone that has helped my skin, but rather a concoction of products that have worked simultaneously together to help me achieve the healthy glowy skin I have today.

Mintd box has been one of my best discoveries of 2017 and within each box i discover more and more amazing products that make it into my favourites (like this, this and this). This months box was equally as amazing as the previous ones. The ‘Travel Beauty Essentials’ beauty box was the box that released in June and consisted of 5 full size and 2 deluxe-size products. As with all Mintd Box each and every products is of the highest quality and from an array of luxury beauty stores like Space NK, Net-a-Porter and Harvey Nichols. The box retails for £65 and has a value is £142, saving you a total of £77 off of the retail value. You can view my previous Mintd Box reviews here.
Ever since the creation of Mintd box last July (happy anniversary Mintd) they have come out with a new globally-on-trend subscription box every month. Unlike other beauty boxes out there Mintd Beauty boxes consist of only premium and luxury brands, which are stocked through sites like Space NK, Selfridges, Style.com and Beauty Expert. If you are someone like myself who holds that Quality over Quantity rule, then Mintd Box really has your name all over it.
