Advent Calendar Haul | Week 2


Another week down (well… 6 days), so more presents from my advent calendars, I can’t wait to sort everything out at the end of the month and put everything away!



Nails Inc Gel One Coat (Molten Star) | I love Nails Inc Nail Polishes, they really are some of the best. And this is so festive – a glittery gold nail polish!

Emma Hardie Morning Cleansing Balm | It has a vaseline texture, but how do you use it? I’ll look into it and get round to using it at some point, but I feel like a lot of people love it

Alpha H Liquid Gold Rose Gold | I’ve had this before in the past, and I have to say I don’t think I would ever purchase it, but I will definitely use it.

Formula Innovative Radiance Reveal Peel | Not a brand I’ve ever heard of, but it’s cruelty free, which is awesome. Says wash off on the bottle, so not a peel peel, which is kind of disappointing. It’s for dull skin, so it’ll be really brightening

Look Good Feel Better Sculpting Sponge | I got a brush from them last year, and this year we have a sponge. It feels soft, so I have high hopes.

Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial | Basically a night cream… which I am severely lacking!



111 Skin Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask | A sheet mask with the most gorgeous marble packaging. It says it has great moisture, so can’t wait to use this!

St Tropez Instant Tan Gloss | Finishing gloss? Fake tan? Not entirely sure what this is, but as I have never fake tanned before, and probably won’t… think I’ll pass this on to someone who will

Cow Shed Lippy Cow Natural Lip Balm | The black and white packaging is adorable!

REN T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel | Everything I’ve tried from REN has been so good, and so I have high hopes for this!

Korres Shower Gel | This smells like liquorish! Which is a scent that’s been growing on me the older I get.. so can’t wait to try this!

Radial Stem Cell Magic Gel | Not entirely sure what this is, it says you can use it as an overnight mask or to cleanse? hmm…


Look Fantastic

Molton Brown Gingerlily Body Wash | Something about Molton Brown shower gels… they’re so luxurious, and this one smells delicious!

Look Fantastic Brush | I’ve tried a LF brush before, and I’ve been impressed, this year we have a Contour/Blush brush, and it looks stunning!

Oskia London Renaissance Mask | Love love love love this mask! I think it’s my favourite mask/face wash I have ever tried. However, it’s so blooming expensive, so I’m so happy I have another sample to use

Bella Pierre Banana Setting Powder | I’ve never got on with banana setting powders as they come out quite dark on me… however, I will give this a go.

Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial | Already have this from the M&S advent calendar, so I guess if I love it… I have a second

Redken No Blow Dry | It says it gives a blow dry without the blow dryer… and does it with air… count me as deeply intrigued..


Tanya Burr

Eye Glitter Pot (Let it Snow) | A little pot of white glitter, I’ve never really used loose glitter… however, now I have some…

Lipgloss (Cranberry Melt) | A stunning cranberry colour!

Mirror | err… this is the cheapest thing I have ever seen… however, I can’t really complain. This calendar isn’t a lot, and it’s full of makeup.



Nail Polish (Birthday Suit) | Nude coloured nail polish, these are just so easy to wear

Matte Me (Old Hollywood) | A classic hollywood deep berry-red, I find this actually really suits my super pale complexion

Lip Pencil (Shabby Chic) | A nude lipliner, mechanical (so awesome), and by the end of this advent calendar you’ll have all the colours you need.

Eyeshadow Brush | An angled eyeshadow brush, not one I usually need… however, can’t wait to try it

Dip It Eyeliner (Black) | I think I’ve tried this before, but I don’t remember what I thought about it. So, I have another one, to remake my opinion

i-Divine Palette (Storm) | I have the full size of this palette, but, to be honest, these ones are really too small to use.. however, very cute



Lingerie (Corset) | A pale nude, which is basically what all of these are

Soft Matte Lip Cream (Sao Paulo) | I have the full size of this, it’s a pink-nude colour, and is a great everyday colour

Liquid Suede (Vintage) | A very deep nude, almost berry toned, very vintage, love it!

Matte Lipstick (Indie Flick) | Orange red, such a vibrant colour

Butter Lipstick (Seashell) | A super pale baby-pink

Week 2 down… so excited for week 3!
