Recently I wrote about how I’d been so kindly given the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar by my boyfriend! (blog post here) and I have been so excited by the products I have recieved so far, so I wanted to share them on here today.
Every morning I remember I get to open another box and it feel so exciting haha! I feel like I’ve done well not to do any peeking online at what is inside, so each box has been a surprise.
1st of December was this Neals Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream! I adore this one already, I used it straight away as I love having soft hands. It smells lovely too, but not too overpowering which is great. I have always loved Neals Yard Skincare so it is really good to try a hand cream from their line.
On day 2, I was super excited to open this Rodial Super Acids X-treme Acid Rush Peel. This is an acid peel that you apply to your face, leave for 15 minutes and then rinse away. Again, I couldn’t wait to try this – I’ve already used it twice! It sort of tingles on your skin for a little while, then settles down but nothing painful or stinging, it just feels like it is working. It leaves my skin feeling ridiculously soft after using it, so it must be doing lots of good!
On the 3rd, I opened this Filorga Time Filler which is a wrinkle correction cream. I hadn’t ever heard of this brand before, but after I looked online I found it was a more high end brand with some impressive skin technology really. I don’t have any wrinkles myself! But I do have fine lines under my eyes that concealer can crease with, so I might see if it helps under my eyes!
The fourth box was this Pixi Brow Tamer! I don’t own a brow gel currently, I got lazy and didn’t buy a new one when my previous gel ran out, so this was such a perfect product to receive! I was saving trying this till after I’d photographed it, so I will let you know my thoughts soon, I’m really happy to be trying some Pixi makeup.
The 5th of December was this Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, another well-known brand I absolutely love! I have used Eyeko liners a few years ago and loved them, but this product is ten times better already, it is a true black colour with brilliant lasting power. This one is the felt tip style applicator which makes it so easy to apply. Love this.
The sixth product is this Josh Wood Radiant Shine Hair Treatment Oil. This has been one of my favourite items as I don’t have any product quite like this. You can either apply to the ends of year hair every day, or use as a pre-shampoo treatment, which is my favourite use. I have super long hair so I can apply plenty to the lengths and ends of my hair without it making my roots oily. This smells absolutely amazing too!
At the end of the first week, the final product was the Ultrasun Face Anti Aging Sun Protection with 30 SPF. I wear an SPF every single day as I really want to protect my skin from sun damage so this is an amazing product for me. I have already used this twice and it sits really well under makeup and you can’t feel it on your skin, definitely liking this so far.
So that is everything so far! I am loving opening each box every morning, especially if it something I can try out right there and then. I hope you enjoyed this post, I guess it is mini reviews as well as showing you what I got! Xxxx
