Advent calendars - the final countdown

So today I opened the final doors on my advent calendars. It's been so much fun, and definitely more exciting than a chocolate advent calendar.

I realise that the beauty advent calendars are quite pricey, but I'm glad that I bought these and I will definitely save up to buy them again next year.

So what did I get in the final week of my advent calendars?

Latest in Beauty:

Steamcream 75g pot - I'm looking forward to trying this given all the hype around the product. The tin is also  so pretty, and I think I will end up keeping it once the product is finished!

Trilogy rosehip oil - a small sample, but intrigued to try this

Balm balm lip balm - this one might go to my mum as I prefer a different type of lip balm

Yardley royal diamond body spray - I'm quite surprised that I like the smell - I associate Yardley (perhaps wrongly) with people of my Nan's era.

Eve Kim rescue mask - this was one of the products that made me buy this calendar! I shall be giving it its first outing afterboxing day to help repair my skin from lots of festive food and drink.

Mont Bleu crystal nail file - I've not tried a crystal nail file before so looking forward to this.

AS London mini candle - this is a lovey travel sized candle. I'm not sure what the fragrance is, but it smells quite strong and spicy.


Caviar pearls sundance - turquoise and gold caviar pearls with little gold sequins in the pot

Cookies and cream - a light mocha shade

Mojito - lime green - I might save this one for more summery weather!

Fade to griege - a purply grey colour

Caviar pearls candyshop - a mix of hot pink, blue and orange pearls

Magic carpet - my favourite out of these, a hot pink glitter.

Enchanted rose - red glitter (I love glitter!)
