Review: M&S Beauty Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream

marks-and-spencer-beauty-formula-absolute-ultimate-sleep-cream-1

I haven’t actually had a full sized version of this but, with the latest Marks and Spencer Beauty Box, I have had three of the mini sample sizes and been using it for a while now so thought I’d do a post on the Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream. Although these are minis at 15ml you really don’t need much of the product so this is enough to get a good feel for if it’s right for you, I love it when companies do that.

The full sized version of this cream comes in a jar and contains 50ml of product at £22. It’s not a low budget product but it’s not high end either, I’d say it’s somewhere in the middle price wise. It is also vegetarian friendly and cruelty free with the leaping bunny logo, one thing I love about Marks and Spencer’s beauty ranges is that they are cruelty free.

Korean Beauty Haul


Since getting a Meme box a couple of years ago I have loved all of the Korean beauty products I’ve tried. I also recently also found the TonyMoly Pokemon range and the Holika Holika Gudetama range and may have had a wish list that was way more than I could actually buy so quite a bit of this order is from those two collections. I do love sheet masks and have been wanting to try more Korean ones, knowing how well a lot of the skincare seems to get on with my skin, so I bought a selection pack along with a moisturiser I know works.

I’ve made a few orders from the f2plus1 eBay store, the eBay store for Beauty Net Korea, so I trust them. Add in the cheaper prices than getting these things anywhere in the UK and the free postage I definitely recommend them if you’re in the UK. They did have a sale on where everything had money off, at the time I think almost everything was around 14% which seems an odd number but getting a bargain is always good.

Advent 2016: Day 3!

Oops, posted early then before it was ready!

Today’s advent is slightly later than planned as we’ve been starting our Christmas decorating! We always put ours up on the first weekend of December, Do you guys have a set date you do it or just whenever you feel like it? It seems the first weekend in December is a fairly standard one around here as we’ve seen a few appearing. Tomorrow we get the Christmas tree, always fun.

Anyway, advent calendars, today in the Marks and Spencer’s one we got a tube of Filorga Time-Filler which is an anti-wrinkle cream. Yankee Candle had a Christmas Cookie tea light and the Ciate nail varnish in the Mini Mani Month was in the colour Seas the Day which is a green, maybe a dark turquoise.

I’m doing these posts every day for advent when I open my advent calendars, including my chocolate one, and I will be doing some more in depth reviews on some of these things so if you see one of these you’re interested in and want to read more about then comment and I’ll add it to the top of the 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?
