Ahhh I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! I cant quite believe how quickly the last few festive days have gone by. I really wanted to get my Advent posts done before the big day, but I just didn’t have time. It was quite nice not to think about anything other than stuffing my face and watching Christmas films though, so I hope you guys don’t mind too much. This year’s calendar seems to have been opened scarily quickly, it has definitely been a blink and you will miss it kind of month.
Anyway, here are the last few doors of my Body Shop Deluxe Advent Calendar…
I know you have all probably opened your Advent Calendar’s by now, but just incase you haven’t, I am going to show you what I opened in the last few doors, so if you don’t want know what is inside boxes 17-25 *please don’t scroll down.*
Day 17 – Eyebrow and Lash Comb / Day 18 – Black Musk Body Lotion
I don’t know why, I always find these combs kinda pointless. Maybe I’m missing a trick somewhere, but I honestly never use them. On the other hand, I love the smell of this body lotion, it smells a bit sweeter than a ‘normal’ musk scent and has a slightly floral tone to it.
Day 19 – Gold Glitter / Day 20 – Mango Shower Gel
Golllld Glittttter! I was so pleased when I opened this, I do love me a bit of glitter. I will definitely be using this around New year (I forgot at Christmas, whoops!) This Mango Shower Gel really makes me think of exotic holidays, I love it. I know I will be popping it on when I am in need of a summery refresh.
Day 21 – Velvet Gel Pen Eyeliner / Day 22 – Almond Hand & Nail Manicure Cream
I am always on the hunt for a new eyeliner, so I am really looking forward to trying this one out. As you have probably guessed by now, I love a hand cream. I am looking forward to trying this one out, it has a slightly sweet smell to it.
Day 23 – Strawberry Born Lip / Day 24 – Almond Milk and Honey Body Butter
I really like the colour of this Born Lippy, but like I said before I am not a huge Strawberry fan, so will probably pass this one on. You can really smell the honey in this body butter, it smells really nice and I bet it is super moisturising, so I can’t wait to give it a go.
Door Number 25 reveals a dice and set of instructions, as all of the boxes that have been opened so far can be used together to play a game. I haven’t played it yet, but I did have a go at a few of the questions as I was going along – not doing very well with the answers I might add.
I am really impressed with this year’s calendar, I feel like there is so much more variety than last year. I will definitely use pretty much all of the products and have homes for the few bits that I won’t use. You will probably see a lot of the products again on the blog in the next few months, as these are only first impressions they may pop up again more in-depth.
I hope you are having a nice Festive few days, I think I have eaten a whole tin of Quality Street over the last few days and I don’t even feel guilty!
