I can’t believe I’m over half way through my advent calendars! Here’s a look at what gifts I’ve got the past few days in my three beauty calendars.
Tanya Burr 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar
On day ten I got another glitter eyeliner in the shade Treasured. It’s a beautiful rose gold colour and as I love receiving glitter makeup, I’m really happy with this.
On day eleven I got a sparkly red nail polish in the shade Sleigh Bells. This looks absolutely stunning and is one of the items I was most excited to get from this calendar. I can’t wait to use it.
The final gift in the Tanya Burr calendar was another beautiful glitter nail polish in the shade Glitter Rain. This is a sparkly silver and will be great to wear in the lead up to Christmas.
So that’s the Tanya Burr calendar complete. It was a really great calendar for the price, with lots of gorgeous, glittery beauty items. I’m sad there was only twelve days, as it definitely held it’s own against the more expensive beauty calendars this year.
The Body Shop 24 Happy Days Advent Calendar
For day ten I got a Strawberry Lip Butter. Whilst this is better than some of the gifts I’ve got in this calendar lately, I did get the exact same product in the Body Shop calendar last year. I find this lip butter okay, but as it’s a creamy formula it does leave my lips looking white rather than applying as a sheer lip balm.
Day eleven’s gift I was very happy with. I received a Vanilla Chai Body Lotion. I’ve held off buying much of the Body Shop’s Christmas range, as I was hoping to get some bits in this calendar. This smells sweet and yet quite subtle. I’m looking forward to using it.
On day twelve I opened up my calendar to find a black pencil eyeliner. Again, I got one of these in the Body Shop calendar last year. As I rarely use pencil eyeliners, I’ll be including this in a giveaway.
So today, I got a set of eyelash curlers. Another repeat offender, as I got the exact same eyelash curlers last year. The quality of this product is good, but as I rarely use the ones I have, these will be included in a giveaway too.
Look Fantastic Advent Calendar
On day ten I got a set of Ardell Wispies eyelashes. I haven’t used false eyelashes for quite a while, but I was looking to get a set to wear over Christmas. These look lovely and quite natural, so I’m excited to try them out.
On day eleven I got a small pot of the Cristophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask. I know this is a pricey brand and the tub looks and feels it too. As my hair is bleached, I can never have too many hair masks, so this is another product I’m really happy to receive.
Wow! That was my first impression when I opened up door twelve yesterday. Inside was a Foreo Luna Play Facial Cleansing Device and a mini Awakening Radiance Yoghurt Cleanser to go with it. I knew this would be in the calendar, but I assumed it would be behind one of the last doors.
The Foreo Luna Play is a vibrating facial cleansing device, that helps clean the skin deeper and more effectively than just cleansing the skin manually. I’ll continue to use my Clarisonic at home and I’ll be taking this away for any upcoming trips, as it’s super compact. I love that a cleanser has also been included to use with it.
So, today’s gift was a mini bottle of the Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Shampoo. This shampoo is meant to be great at making hair softer, more manageable and adding shine. Another item I’m really happy with.
So that’s my roundup of the goodies I’ve received the past few days. I’ll be doing a calendar update again at the end of the week.
