Advent 2015: Day 20

Processed with Moldiv

In the Yankee Candle advent calendar there was another Cinnamon Stick tea light, it’s a great Christmas scent but very strong so I have to feel like burning it but they’re all getting burnt. The Marks and Spencer advent calendar had a small bottle of Verbena Shower Gel by L’Occitane, this is a scent I’ve been wanting to smell properly since I heard about it a few years ago. I’ve had a few L’Occitane products in the past though it’s been mainly around moisturising and soap rather than very scented products. It was one of the products that I was looking forward to trying it when I saw it on the product list.

Advent 2015: Day 9


Today’s M&S is from another brand I have never heard of and it turns out is a bit more high end than any of the products I’ve received so far in the calendar. It’s the Laboratoires Filorga Time-Filler wrinkles correction cream which is a face cream and seems like it’ll be pretty good. The Yankee Candle is another Cinnamon Stick tea light. As I’ve had a few of the same ones close together I’m wondering if these are just randomly placed and you get a certain number of each scent rather than being placed in specific numbers. Does anyone else have this calendar and have you had the same ones as me on the specific days?

Advent 2015: Day 7

  
Today’s M&S advent present is a can, I think you’d call it a can, of Rituals Zensation organic rice milk and cherry blossom foaming shower gel. I’ve seen these around on blogs and think you get them quite a bit in subscription boxes but I’ve never tried one so was interested to see how it works. I got my second duplicate from the Yankee Candle calendar with a Cinnamon Stick tea light.

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.
