Advent 2015: Day 8


Today’s M&S present is from a brand I haven’t heard of before, it’s the Pure Natural Beauty Super Grape Day Cream and is a 30ml tube so there’s quite a few uses from it. I always like it when they make these skin care samples big enough to get more than a week’s worth out of them as it takes a while for skin to adjust to something new. I’m looking forward to trying this properly as a little goes a long way. The Yankee Candle tea light today is another Christmas Memories one which it am happy with as I do like the smell.

Advent 2015: Day 5

  
I am so excited about today’s present from the M&S calendar, it’s a full size Leighton Denny Renovate nail repair cream. I love finding new nail treatments as, although mine are in pretty good condition most of the time they’ve recently dried out and are so ridged since I’ve been less careful about buffing each time and this is supposed to help with that.

Advent 2015: Day 2


I do love these advent calendars, today in the Marks and Spencer one I got a Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream which I think is full size, if not it’s a great size anyway as you don’t need much at a time. I think that the Yankee candle one is cinnamon stick as it doesn’t actually say which is which number, even inside the door, which does leave a bit of guess work for the first one of each until I have one of all of them open so I can compare the more spice based ones to work them out.

Yesterday’s post ended up being done on the laptop because it froze in the app trying to post it, will see if I can get the hang of the app to do these from now on though. I’m hoping this read more thing works but if not I’ll just have to edit it later.

Advent 2015: Day 1

I’ve decided to go back to last year’s advent style and do this on the ipad because it’s a quick first impression after I’ve opened them, I may review some of these at another time. Do you guys like this or go back to on the laptop with a longer review?

Today’s advent presents were a tea light in icicle (I think, going by colour and scent description on the back) and a Philip Kingsley elasticizer in geranium and neroli.
