Body Shop 2015 Advent Calendar

Ola everyone!

My boyfriend is so amazing and when we went along to the Body Shop’s VIP event in November he bought me the Advent Calendar. This whole thing cost £60 and has a worth of £93.50 (of course we had the special 40% off discount for the night so my boyfriend didn’t pay £60 but either way he’s just awesome)

Thoughts. I’m not a massive fan of shimmer lotions but the Cranberry one does smell pretty good. Admittedly, the Plum stuff was new this year but I’m not a huge fan of the smell. The only smell I like in the Plum collection is in the body scrub (I think this is because it’s a sugar scrub and some fruits do taste or smell better when sugar is involved). I also really don’t like the smell of the Wild Argan Oil shower gel but at least there was only 1 product in the calendar. Moving on, I am a fan of the Vitamin E collection so I was glad to have minis from this collection in the box. The Shea butter collection is also quickly becoming one of my favourites. I have yet to open the Honeymania lip butter however I am in 2 minds about this collection, I own the mini cream body scrub from the same collection and I just don’t know what to make of it honestly. Fuji green tea products smell ok in small amounts and the Elderflower eye gel is nice and cooling & soothing. If you hadn’t already guessed from my what I got for Christmas post I absolutely love the Strawberry collection so was extremely happy to find Strawberry products in this calendar. Since I have a lot of hand creams I decided to give the Almond hand cream to my mum because she didn’t have one so I can’t really say anything about that. I’ve fallen in love with the Italian Summer fig scent to the point I will be buying a full-size one when I have finished other perfumes I currently own. While I’ve not tried out the nail varnish yet I do love the colour. I don’t really use eyelash curlers so I’m not sure that will be used but I have already used the mini file and I’ve tried out the eyeliner and it’s actually a pretty soft pencil and doesn’t pull at the lids too much at all. I’m also yet to use the eyeshadow brush but it does feel very soft so I’m hoping it will be good.

Alright everyone that’s all for today, see y’all next week 🙂 Hope everyone’s having a fantastic Thursday!
