Advent calendars days 9, 10 and 11

I have been especially impressed with the past three days of goodies from my calendars as they have been new things I've been looking forward to trying.

In my Latest in Beauty Calendar I received:

Bioeffect EGF serum - good for anti-ageing. I've never tried any Bioeffect products before, so this will be a real treat.

Dermalogica sample pack - containing special cleansing gel, daily microfoliant, skin smoothing cream and multivitamin power firm eye cream.

Jo Hansford intensive conditioning masque - I can definitely use this at this time of year as the cold dries my hair out as well as my face!

In my Ciate calendar, i had two really lovely coloured polishes:

Lady luxe - a fabulous gold shimmery glitter
Mistress -  a bright red colour

I think these two make perfect Christmas polishes.

Plus, I also received the second of my nail caviar pearls, this time in bumble bee - a mixture of black and yellow pearls. I think this will make a great feature nail.

I'm really looking forward to giving these all a try. The only thing I have found with the Ciate polishes so far, is that they have a very strong smell. Now I know nail varnish always smells, but these are really quite strong, so it's just something to be aware of if you are buying them in future - maybe I need to apply them near an open window or something...


  1. Ahh you lucky girl I soo wanted a ciate mini mani month!! Xxx

  2. I absolutely love the look of the yellow and black caviar beads! Would love to see a NOTD with you using those :) x

    1. Thanks :0 There will be one coming very soon, i'm sure x

  3. I so wish I'd picked up the Ciate advent calendar now! I agree on the strong smell though, it's quite overpowering with the Ciate polishes I have. x

    1. It really is so strong! Luckily the colours are lovely though, so it makes up for it x

  4. Why had I never heard about these before? Amazing! Lucky girl! X


  5. These all look amazing! Im so jealous I never brought the ciate one, every time I see a post, I get so jealous



    1. I can highly recommend it. maybe put it one next year's wish list (starting early!) :) x
