A Beauty Advent

I was incredibly lucky in November and won a bespoke beauty Advent Calender from Kat of Tales of A Pale Face blog. As I was being restrained and desperately trying not to purchase any of the amazing beauty calenders out there I was over the moon; not to mention the fact that from reading her blog I knew she has great taste and would no doubt put together a great selection of goodies.

So what was in my one-of-a-kind advent calender?

There are so many products and brands to discover here! Amongst a few tried and tested favourites are a myriad of others that I’ve been eager to try, especially the Illamasqua Hydra Veil, the Moroccan Oil and the Elemis Cleansing Balm. I’m also looking forward to trying the Sleep Balm by This Works to see if it helps me to relax over this rather stressful festive season, and having a lovely soak using the very seasonal smelling Too Cool For Yule bath swirl!

It has been super exciting to open this calender each morning and discover what treats were within the sparkley paper. The product selection didn’t disappoint, in fact I’d go out on a limb and say that it definitely compared to the higher end beauty calenders I’d seen – PLUS it was a one-off and put together with a lot of care by Kat!

I’d like to finish by saying thanks to Kat for this wonderful prize and wishing her a fantastic Christmas and New Year. And of course to my readers too; a Merry Christmas!
