Advent Calendars are one of the best things leading up to Christmas and for the past couple of years now I’ve been getting the M&S beauty advent which is filled with amazing goodies worth £280! Every five days I’ll be collecting up what I got over the ‘week’ (I realise it’s not a full 7 day week but 5 days fits nicely into the 25 days of blogmas) so let’s get into this week’s products…
December 1st- L’Occitane Verbena Shower Gel
I’ve actually tried this before when I stayed in a hotel that gave us L’Occitane toiletries (you can read about that in one of the last years blogmas posts – Hotel Tour) and I love the scent. They give you a pretty good size of it as well so I can’t wait to use this but it’ll have to wait until after Christmas as while it’s Christmas I will only use the Lush Snow Fairy shower gel!😂
December 2nd- Filorga Time-Filler Eyes
I am weirdly obsessed with looking after the skin around my eyes because I believe it’s so delicate and needs lots of care! This is why I always get excited when I open up an eye cream. I’ve already tried this and it’s so good – my eyes looked fresh and bright in the morning after putting it on in the evening.
December 3rd- PRAI Throat & Decolletage Cream
To start this off, how gorgeous is this purple, sparkly packaging? It’s so cute! This cream aims to promote the appearance of firmness and resilience to the skin. I don’t really think I need that yet, but I always use a bit extra of my face cream on my neck so I’m going to try using this instead of wasting my face creams and we’ll see if there’s any difference I guess?? 😂
December 4th- Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara
I am very intrigued by this mascara and very anxious to give it a go! This is the description on the back: ‘Wake up your eyes with our fibre-enhanced formula infused with Caffeine, Arginine Biotinoyl Tripeptide to stimulate lash growth’. I love that it’s fibre-enhanced because fibre-enhanced mascaras always make my eyelashes look great but I’m most excited that it stimulates lash growth. Let’s hope it works!
December 5th- Shay & Blue Black Tulip Natural Spray Fragrance
I adore these charming perfumes that M&S include in the calendar every year. This year’s fragrance is called ‘Black Tulip’ and it smells divine! Their perfumes last all day and I love this adorable packaging. Also, the size that they put in the calendar makes it perfect for travelling or to slip into your handbag.
I am very happy with what I received so far and I’m so excited to see what else I’ll get in the next few days. Have you tried this calendar or any other fab beauty advent calendars? Tell me in the comments and remember to check out the rest of blogmas if you haven’t already!
