The Body Shop® Advent Calendar - 24 Days of Joy - The Final Part!

It's Christmas Eve - Eeeeek! 
We all know what that means - the last day of our Advent calendars! 

So here's day's 15 to 24 of the The Body Shop® Advent Calendar - 24 Days of Joy. I've been quite pleased by the last remaining items - Though some are not usually what I'd go for, I think that's what makes it that bit more special.

So lets see what I got:
Day's 15th to the 19th
I really enjoyed the citrus fresh scent on my skin. It's easily absorbed and the scent lasted all day meaning I had someone go "Oh are you eating an orange?" so maybe I won't put as much on next time!
This reminded me a lot of the RT blending brush, but I might have to venture into say it was better! It gives an even application and has me looking at the rest of their brushes and tools to see what else I can get my hands on!
Call me naive but, I'd never heard of Moringa before and it was quite the little pleasant surprise. It was quite the delicate floral scent that didn't dry out my skin or irritate it. I'm not sure if it's a repurchase, but it was quite a lovely little product.
Oh I LOVE getting a new lily - or as I would normally call it a sponge or 'poof' - This was exceptionally lovely to use with my lovely lil products and was equally quite sensitive on my skin.
Like the shower gel - I'd not heard of it, but I enjoyed the feel and scent on my skin. It was light and easily absorbed. Again, not sure if it's a repurchase, but we'll see how it goes. 
Day's 20 to 24 aka CHRISTMAS EVE!
I've really enjoyed these lip balms. I think I like this one a lil more than the strawberry as I love the colour is more pigmented.
I didn't enjoy this as much as the others - but that's basically because I don't enjoy chocolate scent's on my body. I don't mind shea butter, but there's always something a bit sickening about chocolate - though, admittedly this wasn't that bad.
I was thankful for all the lip balm's in the calendar as my lips tend to suffer in Winter; that and I'm a bit of a lip balm addict! This was lovely on my lips; so hydrating and with a luxurious creamy texture that absorbed into my lips rather than leaving a sticky residue.
I used this yesterday and this morning and I really did enjoy it. It gave a subtle nutty scent and was lovely and hydrating on my skin - I think this might just be a repurchase!
OMG THIS IS AMAZING - especially if you use it after the Shower Cream! It gives a delicious nutty scent, that isn't too strong, but hovers over you all day. It's great for me - I have eczema and it was wonderful on my really dry skin - and that's only from my first use this morning!

So that's my 24 Days of Joy - which I can honestly say have been a joy to behold. I've loved opening up a new little pressie each day! They were all amazing little products, many of which I will be repurchasing in the new year! 

I've thoroughly enjoyed my first ever beauty Advent Calendar and I can guarantee I will be getting one next year!

Did you get The Body Shop® Advent Calendar - 24 Days of Joy? - it has been the highlight of each day to see what I get, definitely better than Chocolate! If you got it tell me what you think or simply your thoughts on Beauty advent calendars!

Merry Christmas to one and all and to all a Good Night!
