I know I've been a bit AWOL from the Blogosphere - especially with the Christmas season upon us - I can't apologise more - so to make it up to you I'm back with a 7-Day-Combo-Review on my Body Shop® Advent Calendar!
|The Body Shop® Advent Calendar - 24 Days of Joy!|
Why it's a combo review is the calendar got sent to my dad's house and it took a while to get to me - then I totally didn't have the time write about it with the hectics of uni - so I'm reviewing 7 days at a time; one day after another! I was so excited to be sent this bad boy it was completely unexpected:
The Body Shop 24 Days of Joy is filled with The Body Shop best sellers and retails for £55. You'll receive 24 surprise products which have the retail value of £80! It ranges from mask and body creams to cheek stains and shower gel. I'd never had a beauty advent calendar before and after this lovely little surprise - I definitely will be!
It's just so pretty and perfect to look at I never wanted to actually open it!
So I opened it seven days at a time as I was quite in to December when I got my hands on it - here's days 1 to 7:
From all the hype I've heard this is a fabulous shower gel - but I've just never enjoyed the Strawberry scent! Though; knowing The Body Shop, and the fact I gave it to a friend: it's gentle on skin and the scent lasted all day!
This Strawberry scented item I do love! It moisturises and hydrates lips leaving a shine finish, without a sticky texture. It gives a red tint that means if I don't fancy a lipstick on I can apply this bad boy and I'm set for hours!
Om Nom Nom - I'm never usually into spiced soaps, But this has been a joy to use, it really got me into the Christmas spirit; that and crave a Gingerbread Latte!
This is another scent I underestimated - I'm never usually into white musk - my Mam loved it, me, not so much - but I can get enough of it! My skin feels amazing after using and the scent isn't a strong once absorbed into the skin - it's light and fresh.
5th: Lip and Cheek Stain
I'm quite skeptical about cheek/lip stains - I always have the constant fear of looking like a clown. But this was quite easy to apply and quite pretty for the Christmas season as I'm sure I can see a bit of sparkle in it.
This I LOVE! I've had it before and I'll buy it again! I love the feeling of the whipped texture and the fact my skin feels soft, smooth and soo awake!
7th: Honeymania Lip Balm
I'd been dying to get my hands on this bad boy since getting the scrub! J'Adore this range! It's by far my favourite range in store. I can't get enough of this. It's lightly scented and does wonders on my lips!
So that's days 1 to 7 and I've loved 90% - I've been certainly pleasantly surprised by the products and there will be many a repurchase in the new year - I can guarantee that!
