Advent 2016: Day 4!


Day four, another late one sorry, and this time I got one of the products I was most excited to try from the Marks and Spencer calendar so I’m a very happy bunny. The Marks and Spencer calendar had the Brow Tamer from Pixi by Petra which I am looking forward to trying out. The Yankee Candle calendar had a Snowflake Cookie tea light and the Ciate Mini Mani Month had a mini Iced Frappe nail varnish which is a favourite from the past so very happy with this too as I managed to miss that it was in here so it was a nice surprise.

These advent calendar posts are mini reviews or first impressions of the things I get in my advent calendar. I am definitely going to be doing a full post on the Brow Tamer and maybe a comparison to the Benefit one as I got one free with a magazine a while ago and it would be interesting to see how they compare.

Advent 2016: Day 1 – It Starts!

It’s the first day of December and that means advent calendar time! I may have ended up with four when I saw a Lindt one on offer and couldn’t resist the chocolatey goodness. With these advent calendar posts I do mini reviews or first impressions for the things I get in the calendars on that day. I will be doing more in depth reviews on some of them in the future when I’ve had a chance to try them some more.

The first day of advent has the Neal’s Yard Bee Lovely Hand Cream in the Marks and Spencer calendar, a Ciate mini Geology nail varnish in Goal Digger from the Ciate Mini Mani Month and a tea light in Spiced Orange from my Yankee Candle one. At least I think it’s Spiced Orange, there are two red ones and nothing on the door to say which it is. I do have a scratch and sniff type card with the other one on it and this doesn’t smell like that. If I’m wrong I’ll come back and edit it when I find out.
