I’m seriously contemplating on bailing on blogmas at the moment as my life is just too busy! I’m currently five days behind which is just ridiculous but lets just roll with it for now. It’s sunday again which means one thing… Advent Calendar Update! Here’s what I got this week in both my Look Fantastic Calendar and my Blogger Advent Calendar.
Look Fantastic: Foreo Luna Play & Cleanser
Blogger: Pug Notebooks
What an amazing day for the Look Fantastic calendar! An entire Foreo Luna Play in pink which is worth £29 AND a 15ml tube of their Night Cleanser worth £4.50! I am so pleased and surprised that they included them together but that made me very very happy indeed. I have been wanting to try a Foreo out for a while now so this is a perfect chance! In my blogger calendar Jay got my some pug notebooks which is great as I love pugs and these are lined which means I can keep them in my bag for tutoring or lists! There’s three designs and they are all super cute!
Look Fantastic: Wella Oil Reflections Shampoo
Blogger: MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter In Pink Shimmer
I’ve not used Wella products in ages but I love any hair product with oil in and shampoo never goes a miss! I suspect my mum and I will both give this a try to see what we think! It’s a 50ml bottle so not a bad size to try it out and I know they sell this size individually for about a fiver so not too bad price wise either. In my blogger calendar was this MUA highlight that i’ve had my eye on for a while but never tried. After swatching I can see it’s more of a lit from within type of highlight rather than an all out glow but I think that will be nice for more subtle makeup days!
Look Fantastic: Origins GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser
Blogger: MUA Matte Lipstick in Fawn Fancy
I’ve been wanting to try this moisturiser out for ages now as I’ve heard so many good things about it! At 30ml that is a really good sized sample of a moisturiser and would cost £14.40 so again another amazing day for this calendar! From Jay I got a MUA matte lipstick which is in a brown/nude shade. Now in the tube this looks quite dark but actually on my lips it’s nearly identical to my own lip shade. I do have very dark lips so I don’t think this would be the case with most people but for me this one will serve as a ‘no makeup makeup day’ lipstick!
Look Fantastic: NUXE Multipurpose Dry Oil With Shimmer
Blogger: Garnier Face Scrub Samples (x3)
I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t that excited about either of these unfortunately. I’ve seen this NUXE oil do the rounds in just about every calendar going and shimmer oils aren’t really my thing. However, I popped a bit on the back of my hand and I bet with a tan this would look lovely on your legs or in the ends of your hair. I’m going to reserve judgement on this one! At 10ml this is small sample but it seems a little will go a long way! This is worth £3.80 on a price per ml basis. In my blogger calendar was some samples of the new Garnier Face Scrub, I do love Garnier skin care so I will be looking forward to trying those out!
Look Fantastic: PurMinerals Impact + Mascara
Blogger: 2017 Mini Diary
I’ve heard of PurMinerals but I’ve never tried anything from them so it’s nice to have them included in the calendar. The brush looks a bit meh but I won’t know until i’ve actually tried it out on my lashes. There’s 3.4g of product inside when apparently the full size is only 4.8g and retails for £19. Thats pretty good in my eyes! However, the brush looks completely different on the full size, and definitely more appealing, so I don’t know how the sample will actually compare to the real thing. In my blogging calendar I got a really cute mini diary, now I am a diary fiend and have had my 2017 diary since October, however, I may use this for my tutoring work each week or my Nan may get it as she always leaves diary buying to the last minute!
Look Fantastic: Bella Pierre Cosmetics Gel Eyeliner in Ebony
Blogger: La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo (+) Unifiant Sample
I have only tried one thing from Bella Pierre in the past and that was their pigment in Champagne and it is incredible so I have high hopes for this! It’s a nice black gel eyeliner pencil that I know my mum will love as she really raves about gel pencils. This is a full sized product which is great and retails for £14.99 so this is a really nice addition to the calendar. La Roche-Posay is a brand I haven’t really tried before but I was pleasantly surprised to see it in the calendar. Unfortunately, it’s a shade too dark at the moment so it’ll have to hand on until the summer when i’ve got more of a tan.
Look Fantastic: Codage Micro-Peeling Mask
Blogger: White Chocolate Bear
I’ve never heard of Codage but I like the idea of a micro-peeling mask. Like one or two of the other samples we’ve had this doesn’t feel completely full which I feel is a bit of a swizz but I’m intrigued to try it all the same. This is one expensive product though, retailing for a huge £60 for the full size 50ml tub meaning that this tiny 15ml tube is worth £9! Jay clearly things that Sunday’s require chocolate and that is totally okay with me! A little Milkybar Bear always goes down a treat around christmas time!
What did you think of this weeks calendars? Which item is your favourite? See you next sunday for the final instalment! I’m going to be so sad when I don’t have things to open daily!
