This year instead of chocolates i ended up getting two beauty advent calendars. One from Boots and the Mini Mani one from Ciate (which was purchased for only £10 at the Clothes Show and all of it was opened immediately). I was really impressed with the Boots beauty advent calendar which retailed at £30 and was one of the cheapest on the market and included brands such as Vichy, Mavala, Orly, Soap and Glory and Umberto Giannini. There was also several perfume samples from Ghost, Juicy Couture and Nina Ricci. I thought I’d share with you some photo’s and my favourite products from it all.
Seventeen 48 Hour Tattoo Eyeliner // Seventeen Blow Out Mascara // Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle // Soap and Glory Clean, Girls Body Wash // Balmi Moisturising Lip Balm // Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Polish // Botanics Heat Protection Shine Serum // Vichy Life Serum // Carmex Lip Balm
Orly Bonder Basecoat // Mavala Pure Diamond // Mavala London // Nails Inc. Porchester Square // Seventeen Supreme Shine Miami // Salon Nail Care Shine Solution
Although some are only little testers, I’m really overly pleased with the whole calendar and I’ve also used a couple of items such as the Mavala Pure Diamond nail polish and insanely love it! Plus you can never go wrong with lip balms such as Carmex and Balmi. The Soap and Glory minis will be perfect if I go on holiday soon and I cannot wait to test out the Seventeen make-up!
Did anyone else grab this advent calendar? Or even another beauty one?
