December 2012 Favourites

Image
Mac Syrup - I've only had Mac's Syrup for a month but it's quickly become one of my favourite lip sticks of all time. It's a perfect my lips but better shade and I love the formula.

Liz Earle Hand Repair* - A mini hand repair was in my Liz Earle Advent Calender and I fell in love with it again. It's really moisturising but doesn't leave your hands feel greasy. I also love the scent! I've been keeping the mini tube in my bag and the full size has been sitting on my bedside table.

Korres Guava Lip Butter - I added another lip butter to my collection, this was is guava which is a milky white colour and smells exactly like guava. It doesn't leave any colour on the lips though which makes it a great base for lip sticks. I can see myself finishing this really quickly at the rate I've been using it. Definitely my favourite day time lip balm at the moment.

L'Occitane Almond Hand Soap* - I've included a new wrapped soap in the photo as the one currently…

December 2012 Empties

Image
I've hardly finished any products this month! There's a few which are nearly finished but these three are the only one's that are completely empty.

Espa Energising Shower Gel* - This shower gel came in the Espa Glossybox and I really enjoyed using it. It felt a lot more luxurious than normal shower gels and it lathered really nicely. I also loved the spa scent. I have another mini tube of this to use up and I've love to buy the full size but it's £18 which I can't really justify.

Soap And Glory Hand Maid - This is an essential for work and I've already started my next bottle. I do wish they'd sell it in a bigger size so I can keep one on my desk though.

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Perfume - I can't believe I've gone through this perfume so quickly but I have been wearing it everyday since I got it. I love the scent and you can read my proper review here. I will be buying this again at some point. I also want to try out Taylor Swifts new perfume.

China Glaze It's A Trap-eze! - NOTD

Image
It's A Trap-eze! came out with the Cirque du Soleil Collection. Overall I wasn't too fussed with the collection but I did pick up this one and two others.

It's A Trap-eze! is a multi-colour and multi-sized glitter in a sheer white base. I love it in the bottle but I'm just not sure about it once on the nails. It doesn't apply very well and I don't have the patience to try and apply it nicely. This was two coats with a few little patches of a third coat to try and even things out. I also think it needs a sheer white/pink polish over the top to make the top layer of glitter look better.

Advent Day 24

Image
I cannot believe it's Christmas eve and it's the last day of opening my advent calendars! It really doesn't feel like Christmas tomorrow as I'm in work all today. At least I'll be wearing my Christmas jumper and swapping secret santa gifts.

This'll probably be my last post for the next few days so I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

L'Occitane Almond Gift Set

Image
This gift set* from L'Occitane is probably one of my favourites. It's full of almond scented products which smell good enough to eat! You can tell how popular it is as it's currently out of stock on their website but probably still available to buy in store if you're looking for a last minute gift for someone or even for yourself.

Shower Oil - This has been on the top of my wishlist for such a long time after everyone's been raving about it. You actually get a 500ml bottle in the gift set where as the normal 250ml bottle costs £16.50. When in contact this oil turns into a softening foam which feels really luxurious on the skin. I'll say it again, this smells amazing! Which I'll probably be repeating for every single product in this set.

Milk Concentrate - I just love the glass jar this body moisturiser comes in and will look perfect on a dressing table. It feels light weight on the skin which is what I like but it is still very hydrating. A good one for wint…
