I must start by saying how amazing is this packaging?! So girly.
I have always wanted an eye mask for when I go to bed. I love to sleep in the dark, but Sam never shuts his blind 🙈 so honestly, this was amazing for me! 😂
Onto the products… They all smell amazing, the consistency is spot on (thicker) & so far so good my skin has reacted well to them 🙌🏽 I received 5 mini products; A facial cleanser, hydrating a time-aging serum, hydrating repair cream, hydrating mask & daily hydrating moisturiser! I am so happy with these. I have used them once to try them out & now I am keeping them for my holiday as I only have hand luggage!
I was well & truly treated to some goodies here… Have you tried image skincare? If you haven’t I definitely recommend them to you.

Elemis is by far one of my favourite skincare brands so to receive this was an absolute treat! Thankyou elemis & glamour beauty club ✌🏽️
I have had a few facials in spa’s that use elemis. It honestly is a saviour to your skin! Thankyou for sending this to me to try complimentary, you’re skin savers. I had a little break out recently as the stress is taking over, so this couldn’t have come at a better time
It is literally perfect. It smells amazing, the consistency is perfect, as I like mine to be quite thick, the packaging is fresh. Plus… It actually works 🙌🏽 it’s packed with oils & vitamin rich superfoods so there are no nasties!!
I would 100% recommend this to anybody! Who else loves elemis as much as me?!

I need to start by saying I would have happily paid full price for this box! I paid £15 in their winter sale & it should have been £25…
The eylure lashes were bloody beautiful.. I did end up ruining them though which I was gutted about, but I think I have a new favourite no. now! I normally had 101 or 107! 😍 I’ve also replaced my old beauty blender sponge with this one. I love the shape of this one. I much prefer a flat edge!
Two sleek products, they’re spoiling us with this box. The eyeshadow palette has such beautiful shades, it is very small though so you won’t get much use out of it! The red matte lipstick is a lovely colour. I have only swatched it so far, but it might be my valentines lipstick this year 💁🏽💋
The little glitter pots may get used maybe for an extravagant makeup look, or a festival… The face wipes are fab, do the trick perfectly 👌🏼 & work well with sensitive skin.
So so many products in this box, I think it was an absolute bargain! I mean £15 & it includes st tropez… You can’t beat that can you?!
Is anybody subscribed to latest in beauty or had any of their boxes before?

I was recently gifted this beauty of a product from dr botanicals. I have tried it before as I’d received it in my look fantastic advent calendar over Christmas. So I knew I loved it already! 😍
This honestly is a brilliant product. It smells absolutely beautiful! The scent isn’t too strong as sometimes rose scented things can be overpowering! Every time I use this I use it like a toner… So I cleanse my skin first & I still use a night cream afterwards. I do have to get Sam to smell how good my face smells after using it too though… 🙄😂 poor boy!
How beautiful is the packaging? I love things that look ‘natural’ 🍃 this product is well worth the hype. Trust me! I have super sensitive skin as well & this never causes me any problems. It’s packed with so many goodies vitamin c & vitamin a – to help stimulate collagen & to even skin tone. Plus almond oil to help nourish & brighten! You couldn’t say no to all of that!
Have you tried it before?!

Lookfantastic is one of my fav places to buy beauty products from. I receive their beauty box monthly so it has introduced me to some brilliant brands!! Thanks to this I have found these fab products…
Regenerate toothpaste; I bloody love this product!! 😃 It’s supposed to help repair the enamel on your teeth, which will in turn help to whiten & brigten teeth! I have had a few tubes of this now & I am completely hooked. I urge anybody to give it a try! It has a minty flavour, but it’s not overly strong. I recently purchased it for £8.
Garnier makeup remover; I bought a few bottles of this as it was on offer & I am pleased that I did. *You have to give it a good shake before you use it to mix the product together* it’s so gentle on your skin & I need that as mine is quite sensitive! I love it because it actually does remove your eye makeup really well 🙌🏽 it is a bit more oily than just water, so be careful on different skin types.
Grow gorgeous scalp detox; now apologies if anyone I know is reading this as I have been banging on about it for weeks now! It honestly works… I have had some major hair growth whilst using this & I love their packaging. 💆🏽 It’s to help your hair grow, but also to get rid of the build up of product that gets left in your scalp 👌🏽
Have you ever bought anything from lookfantastic? If you haven’t it’s worth having a look as they usually have quite a lot of good deals, plus lots of discount codes thought the month 💳 always nice to save some pennies

Firstly a massive Thankyou to Beth for organising this, you’re an angel & I appreciate the time & effort you put into this!!
Secondly, Thankyou to my secret Santa! Not sure if she worked out that we ended up with each other 😂 but I hope she likes her gifts.
Thanks Lucie, you didn’t have to send two parcels bless you. But I love my gifts ☺️☺️
I’ve always wanted to try a sleek lipstick, so this beautiful matte finish one is perfect. A nude colour too, it’s like she knows me so well.
I’m so grateful for the lush bubble bar as I’ve seen so many of these all over Instagram lately & I don’t have a lush shop very close to me 🙊 and lastly a fabulous body shop gift set, which will be perfect to take with me for my New Year’s Eve stay!
Does anybody else do secret santa?

How to look after your skin, hair & nails during winter… Well how I do anyway 💁🏽 There are a few things that I do that help keep mine looking & feeling pretty good! So here are the main ones…
I honestly believe if you aren’t taking any vitamins then you should be. Yes we get vitamins from foods etc & sunlight, but it’s winter now & we need to up the vitamins in the cold weather. I take a standard multivitamin, you could take hair, skin & nail ones too. But I also take collagen tablets or drink a collagen drink. Since using these I haven’t had ANY dry skin. We all get spot breakouts, especially around the time of our periods, so girls I’m not saying you won’t ever get spots. But your skin will feel amazingly hydrated & look brighter!
This is super duper important! It’s important all year round so really you should be doing this daily anywho… But this is how I look after my skin from the outside.
Firstly you need to double cleanse, so not once, but twice so you definitely get rid of all makeup or any other products that you have use. I switch mine up so I don’t cleanse with the same product either. Then you need to use a toner. Lastly depending on whether this is your morning or evening routine you need a lovely moisturiser for the day time & night cream in the evening. I swear by night creams, absolutely love them.
For your body, don’t forget, you also need to be giving it some attention, so we know that our hands & feet could do with some tlc too throughout the colder months! Slap on a body lotion, or hand cream & let it do the work.
I love to have my hair looking super healthy all year round. In the winter it can get a little dry due to the weather. I find using an oil on the ends of my hair all year keeps it silky & managable. I swear by using hair products before your hair dries rather than after. Sometimes if you use it after it goes a bit thick & makes it look greasy.. Nobody wants that
I hope these tips helped ☺️ have a fab Christmas everyone!

Another weeks worth of advent calendar coming up….
So I can’t comment on all of these as a few of them I have given away… Aren’t I kind?! 😂🙊 I gave away the redken no blow dry styling product as I keep telling a lady at work how nice her hair looks when she leaves it to dry naturally, a lovely natural curl! So I thought who better to use this?! She says she loves it so that’s pretty good 💁🏽
I love love love the oskia cleanser & the caudalie skincare products! I’ve used both of these before & they’re literally such amazing products. If you haven’t tried either of these brands yet then you need to. Your face will be so soft & will feel amazingly hydrated.
The banana setting powder I am still getting to grips with, but it looks good so I will keep using it ☺️
Moroccan oil is the best hair oil everrrrr. I am so pleased to get this 💆🏽 I pride myself in super silky smooth hair so it’s safe to say this was a hit 🙌🏽 the korres wild rose hand cream is beautiful, it has a thicker consistency so it’s perfect in this cold weather!
I also gave away the molton brown body wash, it smelt absolutely amazing!!! *I am giving things away not because I don’t want them or like them by the way, but because I am not that greedy & I did pay for the calendar 🙈
I’m loving this calendar 😍😍😍

Sorry this is a bit late, but my November lookfantastic beauty box review! So much skincare this month which I was chuffed about, wahoooo…
Let’s start with how perfect it is getting a new deep red lipstick for winter. Perfect shade & it was from bella Pierre which I have recently been introduced to & I’m loving their products. Looks beautiful on & it’s a really good sized product too 👄
The pixi beauty glow booster liquid has a beautiful silky feel to it & doesn’t sit on your skin too heavy! Only tip I would say is don’t put too much on as it is very pigmented!
I absolutely love the pillow spray by this works. I used this spray when I was feeling full of cold & it honestly did help me sleep. My mum wasn’t too keen on the herbally scent, but I love it 😍💁🏽
I really loved the murad day cream, especially as it had spf protection too. It was so hydrating & packed with vitamin c. The scent was so lovely, quite fruity! My skin instantly felt firmer! A definite fav out of this box 👌🏼
One product I was disappointed with was the teeez cosmetics eyeshadow. It was kind of like ombré but it was a khaki green,with a shimmery pink. You just couldn’t see the pink on your eyes whatsoever & wasn’t very pigmented, the colour just wouldn’t build up on my eyes… Sorryyyyy
The eye cream is perfect too. I loved the thicker consistency of this product! Another fabulous smelling cream… I swear my boyfriend gets fed up me keep saying ooo smell how good this one smells! 😂
Cannot wait to show you the December box 😍😍

Oh my lordy lord. I have wanted one of these for years & I finally ordered one this year. I’m soooo excited. It arrived sooo early, which was such a tease… I almost managed to resist, but I did have a sneaky peek 🙈🙄
I have only ever heard good things about this calendar. I literally chose this one because I think it’s the most appealing. I buy so much stuff from lookfantastic when it comes to beauty so I’m pretty sure I’m going to love it. Plus they sent me a discount code in my October subscription box. So if you could resist that you’d have to be a bloody Saint.
I’m hoping I’ll get some really nice skincare products in this… Maybe some caudalie things 😍
I wish I could order all of these kinds of calendars 🤔 if I win the lottery then maybe I could?! I need to think up some plans here 😂
Have you ever tried this advent calendar?! Or do you have a different beauty calendar?
I do also have a yummy chocolate calendar at my other halves too though… Can’t beat a chocolate calendar can you?!
