A beauty advent calendar is the gift that keeps on giving. My M&S beauty advent calendar is giving me 24 days of gifts that I am sharing with you! Check out days 1-6 here and days 7-12 here. I have been posting my daily openings on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook so make sure you check them out too…but here’s a round-up for you lovely blog readers. 🙂
13th December – This bath soak smells nice and was great to use to revive myself after feeling unwell. I’ll be honest though, it does not beat the LUSH bubble bars for value, scent and the soft feeling on your skin. Nice to use but I will not be purchasing this.
14th December – I already use this no oil hair oil every time I wash my hair. It’s like a serum that adds a bit of softness and shine, particularly to the ends of my hair when I am getting towards that time when I need a trim. You only need a couple of pumps so it lasts for ages. I have quite a few samples of this to use up otherwise I would be repurchasing this.
15th December – I love Roger & Gallet and had their Fleur de Figuier eau fraiche last year which I liked although didn’t love. The hand & nail balm is really nice and moisturising and the scent is delicate and not overpowering. This is not on my repurchase list but if you are looking for a hand cream, particularly as a gift, then check it out.
16th December – I haven’t tried this face sculpting gel yet but I am excited about trying it. The brand itself I really like although the premium price tag does not please me so much. It claims to lift sagging skin and define facial contours. I am not sure my skin is sagging but I am still going to put it to the test!
17th December – I have never tried this brand before but I think this masque will be perfect for my hair. I tend to use hair masques as my regular conditioner, not as a one-off treatment. This one promises to provide volume as well as nourishing my coloured hair. They also do a nice-sounding dry shampoo which I will be checking out.
18th December – This is probably the most disappointing product in this calendar so far. I have no use for this soap in my beauty routine so I am going to use it to clean my makeup brushes with! In fact my brushes really need cleaning so that may be tomorrow’s job!
I hope you enjoyed this beauty advent calendar round-up. Look out for the final one in 6 days’ time!
