The festive season is now upon us and that means I can finally open my Christmas Advent Calendar! U usually always purchase the You Beauty advent calendar but when I looked this year it seemed to contain all the same things I had last year so this year I opted for the Selfridges Beauty calendar.
Selfridges launched two calendars this year. A premium calendar that cost £95.00 and that unfortunately sold out right away and then the Beauty Workshop Beauty Advent Calendar that cost £60.00, which is the one I went for.
At first I was going to post each day about what was behind each window but I went to London for the weekend so was unable to open my advent calendar so I just figured I’d post a weekly overview about the contents of the calendar.
So these are the goodies that were waiting for me behind those little doors this week:
Day 1: Time Bomb Take-Off Time Cleansing Cream 30ml
I love a good a cleanser and this is a brand I have never tried before. An exfoliating cleanser that buffs away dead skin, what more could you ask for?
I am yet to try this product but it has now been added to my cleansing drawer so I’ll post an update once I’ve tried it.
Day 2: Rodial Dragon’s Blood Sculpting Gel
I was so excited to get this. I have tried Rodial Products in the past and have really enjoyed them and this is a range I that has been on my radar but I have never purchased it as this product carries a £79.00 price tag. Now I finally get to try it without having to shell out so much money.
Day 3: Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation 7.5ml
I have received this product before in a beauty box and quite liked it. It is a mineral based SPF that evens undertones and minimizes wrinkles and the appearance of pores. Although I didn’t notice any difference in the appearance of my pores I did like the silkiness on my skin and I enjoyed using it as sunscreen.
Day 4: Carmex Moisturising Lip Balm
This came in limited edition packaging, which was quite fun. I’m not a fan of Carmex as it is quite tingly on my lips, which I don’t like, but my Boyfriend was more than happy to take this off my hands.
Day5: BareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
This travel size Mascara is perfect for carrying in my handbag, taking my daytime eye look to a more intense evening look. I love the twisting wand, which is unlike any wand I’ve seen before. I cant wait to try this!
Day 6: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Gold Glitter
This is perfect for Christmas time. The website says to use in your hair or sprinkled onto wet nail varnish. This item is not safe to use on the eye area but would look great applied over lipstick for an intense party look!
Day 7 – Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
This is a foaming gel cleanser, which will be perfect for using with my Clarisonic Brush. Another fantastic product!
I can’t wait to see what this next week brings! Which Advent Calendar are you guys currently opening? Let me know!
