The gifts from my advent calendar kept on getting better and better. Here’s what I got on days 16-25. Yes, there was a gift on Xmas day too!
Day 16 – QMS Medicosmetics face mask
Never heard of this brand, so I can’t comment but looking forward to trying it out since I rarely use face masks but I should!
Day 17 – Surratt Smokey Eye Baton
Again this is one I haven’t come across before but I love the smokey eye look, so anything that helps to get that right is a welcome addition to my beauty collection.
Day 18 – Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil
Another one that is new to me, but it looks and smells great so I can’t wait to give this a whirl!
Day 19 – Davines Oi Shampoo
Haven’t seen this before either and not feeling too excited about using it – something about the packaging puts me off, but I will let you know what it’s like…
Day 20 – Dr Sebagh Serum
Now this one has had some rave reviews, so I’m super excited to give it a go and report back.
Day 21 – Byredo Hand Cream
I’ve heard all about their perfumes so I expect this to smell wonderful. Love the simple yet elegant packaging in the old-school medicinal metallic tube too!
Day 22 – Trish McEvoy Liquid Lip Colour
This is amazing! I slicked some on in the pre-Christmas rush around and it lasted all day long. My lips were still stained with the pigment after dinner and drinks that evening, so I can definitely vouch for the long-lasting, rich colour. Keen to see the other colours as this is great for Christmas and parties, not so great for office days in my opinion.
Day 23 – Votary Cleansing Oil & Cloth
As I currently use a Shu Uemura cleansing oil that’s starting to run out, I can’t wait to give this one a try! Haven’t smelled it yet but the description sounds amazing.
Day 24 – Diptique Candle
I’m obsessed with candles and strangely enough haven’t tried this brand yet since I’ve been too hooked on Jo Malone. Let’s see if this can sway me.
Day 25 – Le Labo The Noir perfume
I recently went to the Edition Hotel in London and the smell in the lobby was so lovely that I had to ask the staff what it was. I was expecting it to be some sort of candle or diffuser, but the guy said “We infuse the air conditioning system with Le Labo’s The Noir Madame” – it smells amazing in a room, let’s see how it smells on me…
