The theme this year is Enchanted Forest, and each calendar is based around a different woodland animal, which I love! I have the mid priced calendar to share with you today, but before I get into this, I’ll just give you a quick overview of the other two available calendars –

Firstly the 24 Days Of The Enchanted Advent Calendar – this has an Owl theme, and costs £45, but is worth £85. This calendar is packed with mini essentials to give new The Body Shop customers a crash-course in cruelty-free beauty. It includes the classic Body Butter, Shea Hand Cream, Matte Lip Liquids, Coconut Body Scrub and Strawberry Shower Gel.

And the 25 Days Of The Enchanted Ultimate Advent Calendar – this one has a Fox theme, it costs £99 and is worth £231. This. luxury advent calendar includes 25 cruelty-free gifts, including 14 full-size products and the most luxurious of skincare ranges. Featuring the bestselling Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask as well as the Moringa Body Yogurt for fast-absorbing moisture. Other treats include Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil and the Almond Milk and Honey Body Lotion to soothe winter skin.

Now on to the 25 Days of Enchanted Deluxe Advent Calendar. This stunning calendar has a Deer theme (Dani the Deer in fact!) It costs £65 and is worth £121.

I just wanted to quickly say, I’m reviewing quite a few advent calendars this year, and The Body Shop’s calendars are definitely the most attractive – I forgot to include a picture of the outer box, which features a large print of Dani the Deer, but you can see all the inside boxes are beautifully decorated. I just wanted to note that The Body Shop have done an outstanding job with their packaging this year!

On to the products now! So this calendar contains 25 beauty treats, including a fair amount of full sizes, such as a 200ml Coconut Body Butter, Eyeliner, Eyelash Curler and Liquid Lipstick. There’s also plenty of deluxe mini products to keep you going throughout December, including shower gels, body butters, hand cream, lip balm and much more, and of course these feature some of the most popular fragrances from The Body Shop.

I should mention that each of the boxes also set you small, fun daily tasks to help you reconnect with nature, which I think is a lovely touch. This advent calendar is also incredibly high quality, so it would be perfect for re-using and gifting to a loved one next Christmas 🙂

Posted on November 19, 2018

Today I have the wonderful NYX Professional Makeup Advent Calendar to share with you!

NYX is a fantastic mid-range brand offering affordable cosmetics in a massive range of shades. I think they can often be overlooked when it comes to high street brands, but they really do have some fab products – I love their Butter Lip Glosses especially.

Their 2018 ‘Sugar Trip’ Advent Calendar contains a selection of lip products, eyeshadows, highlighters, and one blush. All come in super cute mini sizes, and each of the powder products open up like little books – I’m not sure how practical these are (maybe they can be popped out to put in a palette) but they do look SO sweet. This is very much novelty packaging that’s perfect for Christmas, and I have to say I love it! The whole calendar is fun and colourful, and packed with a fantastic varied selection of NYX treats.

From 10 blendable powders to 14 mid-size lip colors, this amazing assortment is your one-stop shop for treats.

I should mention though, some of the shades included are pretty out there – expect to find cornflour blue, dark brown and black coloured lip products, which definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. Most of the rest of the shades are pretty wearable though, and the powder products especially will be suited to just about anyone.

Must Have Fragrances To Add To Your Wish List!

Posted on November 14, 2018

I have a fantastic bundle of new high street fragrances that have launched over the last few months to share with you today. This is quite a long list, so I’ll try to keep the descriptions pretty short. I’ve added a list of notes for each fragrance, as well as information on similar scents and ‘you’ll like this if..’ for each scent too – enjoy!

Starting with the gorgeous Lancome La Vie Est Belle L’Eclat EDT – this fragrance is easily one of my favourite launches of 2018. La Vie Est Belle L’Eclat opens with wonderful zesty, sparkling notes of mandarin, grapefruit and bergamot, leading to a shimmering floral heart, and a bright and warm base of Iris, Patchouli and, Ambroxan.

Elie Saab Girl of Now Shine EDP is next – this is a beautifully radiant gourmand fragrance that opens with edible notes of roasted pistachio and juicy pineapple, before a heart of sunny ylang ylang, jasmine, ormond flower, almond and orange blossom. In the dry down, the earthiness of iris and patchouli combines with fuzzy vanilla, creating a trail that lingers with sensuality.

  • Top Notes: Roasted Pistachio, Pineapple
  • Heart Notes: Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Ormond Flower
  • Base Notes: Iris, Vanilla, Patchouli

Wonderlust Eau Fresh is a luxurious interpretation of the original, opening with sparkling pink grapefruit, tart Granny Smith apples, and Italian bergamot.

The botanical heart is a duo of green and floral notes with a blend of rhubarb leaves and orange blossom absolute for an explosive and intense freshness, and the animal heart is the combination of bourbon vanilla absolute and wolfwood, a new silky enveloping wood with a sensual texture.

Mutiny is described as a modern take on a timeless classic, it’s an oriental floral fragrance with ‘deconstructed’ tuberose, meaning different qualities of tuberose have been positioned in the top, heart and base notes of the fragrance. The result is a daring floral that reveals the true facets of the flower, combining tuberose with a warm leather accord.

Next we have Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal By Night EDP – the latest take on Scandal, Scandal By Night offers a deeper take on the original, where the creaminess of gardenia has been replaced with the sweetness of honeyed tuberose. Sticky and rich, the smoothness of tonka bean and sandalwood create an almond-like scent, kissing your skin with an addictive, almost-edible finale. This fragrance is wonderfully edible – a must try for fans of Jean Paul Gaultier!

As the scent warms of the skin, addictive tones of roasted tonka bean and sweet, resinous benzoin are what gives Jimmy Choo Fever its multifaceted personality, creating a beautiful lingering aroma.

  • Top Notes: Water Lemon, Acai Tea Natureprint, Pear Infusion
  • Heart Notes: Jasmine Absolute, Wild Tuberose, Dewy Honeysuckle Natureprint
  • Base Notes: Techno Woods, Amber Resins, Captive Musks
  • Smells like / is similar to: Marc Jacobs Daisy
  • You’ll like this if: you like clean, fresh, girly scents.

And last but not least, the gorgeous Paco Rabanne Black XS For Her EDP – an electrifying floral oriental fragrance that’s both sensual and provocative. The scent opens with creamy ylang-ylang and tempting vanilla, before making way for a distinctive heart of warm popped puffed corn, musk and milkwood. The seductive base of sandalwood blends with hot ambrette seed to create an sensuous, intoxicating blend. This is the perfect evening scent, and the bottle is stunning too – be sure to add this to your Christmas list!
