M & S Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing – Week 1!

Hi Guys! 

The beauty advent calendar that I went for this year was the Marks & Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar! This calendar has a product value of £250 which is absolutely mental – SUCH good value for money.

The calendar cost £35 when you spent £35 on other things from M&S and I bought some presents for my family for Christmas and managed to get the advent calendar!

The calendar is a sturdy, festive christmas tree which contains lots of sweet little boxes for you to open up, right until Christmas.

5 Things That Definitely Happen When You Get Your Hair Cut…

Hi Guys! 

I sometimes find getting my hair cut a socially harrowing experience. It’s an odd place all round I think, no matter what salons try to do, it is. You are trimming follicles that grow out of your head and going specifically to a place that does this all the time.

So I thought I’d talk about the 5 things that definitely cross our minds (or at least mine) when I’m at the hairdressers.

Week 1 – The Body Shop Advent Calendar!

Hello you lovely people!

We are getting truly into the Christmas spirit – with THREE advent calendars (two chocolate, one beauty) to open on the regs I can say that I am a very happy girl 🙂 (doors of joy people, doors of joy).

I can now introduce you to the little treats that I’ve received in the first week of my advent calendar! I gave you a little first peek post which you can read here. Now we have 5 days of products that I can show you!

So far I can say that I’m pleased with the treats I’ve had from the first few days of the calendar – it’s been really fun thinking about what could be inside the different sized boxes and I’ve loved opening them.

number 5

number 6

So we have had:

  • A little pot of Vitamin E Moisture Cream
  • Shea Body Butter
  • Black Kohl Eye Definer
  • Fuji Green Tea Body Wash
  • Pale Green Loofah!

My favourite items out of this week’s advent calendar has to be the Fuji Green Tea body wash because it smells WAY better than you would expect it to. It smells SO FRESH AND SO CLEAN CLEAN but in a really sophisticated, understated way like a subtle perfume. I can’t wait to use this – it looks very clarifying!

I can’t wait to show you what I get next week! 

Also, I have had a big issue getting over what happens each day. basically, I thought that someone at the Body Shop would have had to the job to check the format of the boxes so that they didn’t all fall into a big mess.

Welllll lookee here!

hahahahah

CARNAGE ABSOLUTE CARNAGE

Hahahaha, that’s all for today!

The Body Shop – Christmas Advent Calendar 2015!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re all having a good week – mine is going slow but fast at the same time..a very odd feeling. The time has come to reveal the little advent treats that I’ve been unboxing from my Body Shop Advent Calendar! This advent calendar is one I’ve wanted to try since last year – last year I had the Ciaté one and thoroughly enjoyed expanding my nail polish collection!

This year the calendar I’ve gone for is slightly more expensive but I know the value of the products is way over the price paid- AND I went to buy it on a day where the Body Shop were offering 30% off for loyalty card holders (which luckily, I am one of) :D. After you take off the 30% it actually makes this advent calendar a similar price to the Ciaté one I had last year.

So, here is the advent calendar – yes it’s made from cardboard, but they’ve made it into a beautiful christmassy green double door box with little advent boxes inside.

I love the design of this because it’s traditionally Christmas, but it has a great well thought out layout on the inside 🙂

Now, I have already (by this point) opened THREE of the little teeny green boxes, but what I want to know is how you want me to blog about them!

I plan to do posts showing you around 2 at a time so I can actually explain my thoughts on the products that I get. Would you like that way of showing you the products? I’d love to know your thoughts – I could do a mega haul each week if you’d prefer!

Let me know in the comments below 🙂 or on Instagram @snosh90, OR on my Facebook page  (so many methods of communication for you to choose from!)

For now, I will show you the product I got in NUMBER ONE  of my advent calendar.

It wasn’t a show stopper but a nice product all round – it’s probably one that I’ll give to someone as a little present simply because the scent isn’t to my taste.

day 1

This is a Frosted Cranberry Shimmer Lotion which kinda sounds like the kind of thing I’d have wanted around 10 years ago! A shimmer lotion seems like a bit of a backwards step in beauty – back to the 90’s.

If this was in the advent calendar in a different scent I’d probably have been all over it. Now having been away at the weekend on a night out, the smell of this actually made me gag a little bit. The reason for that is I got the overwhelming smell of ALCOHOL. I’m not even sure where that came from as I didn’t even drink anything with cranbizzle in it :’)…weird.

Saying that, this hasn’t put me off the products in the advent calendar – I know that there’ll be loads of stuff that I like in here as I get through the little boxes! They have little quips on them too and questions to get you excited for opening them.

I’m excited to open more of these as we go through December – a beauty advent calendar is a great way of getting you excited for Christmas!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this, I’ve definitely enjoyed writing it…

Let me know if you have a preference of how I post these little advent treats!

**Ugh a song by Beiber just came on that isn’t Sorry and I’m like SHUTUP**

Thanks for reading guys!
