Minty Fresh // Product Reviews

I love the smell of mint. It's invigorating and stimulating and makes me wanna dance. And there are health benefits to mint too! Several studies have even linked the smell of mint to improved mental performance, pain threshold and athletic performance. It's been suggested that whiffing the smell of mint right before a test or game will increase performance, both academically and athletically. 

So why not jump on this mint train with me, eh!? Here are a few of my favorite products that are minty fresh and fabulous.

This three-in-one foaming cleanser wakes up my face big time and leaves my face feeling clean but not tight. Supernatural ingredients such as goji berry, acacia berry, peppermint oil and aloe make this a top pick for me! 

This sulfate free shampoo and conditioning duo is perfect for a once a week clarifying wash or for those prone to oily hair. Strips hair of build-up but miraculously doesn't dry it out at the same time! 

All Bliss products are fantastic and this is no exception. Scrub up with this deliciously minty body buffer and you will exit the shower with a fresh tingly feeling. 

Perfect to lather on after a nice hot shower, this whipped body cream has a rousing aroma of peppermint, spearmint, orange and rosemary. The cream is soothing and cooling at the same time and makes my skin velvety soft. 

This gloss is super shiny but does not feel sticky on your lips, which I love. I mean, who wants to feel like they have glue on their lips and who wants to make out with glue on their lips? Described as having a flavor of wedding mints, this gloss gives you a little zing of fresh breah and also includes a lip plumper.

Featuring a super rich pigment with a blend of peppermint and hemp oils, this gloss is freaking fabulous. And something about the packaging really gets me going! Put some chapstick on first if you want to tone it down a bit. 

Spiked with exfoliating sugar crystals, this body buffer gives you an invigorating buffing experience like no other. A hint of mint and sugar will surely wake you up in the morning!
