Boots Beauty Advent Calendar: Days 1-7


I am loving this Advent Calendar! The surprises that I get every day are fantastic, here are days 1 to 7:

Day 1: Soap And Glory 'Clean, Girls' mini body wash.
- I'm not usually a fan of all the smells from Soap&Glory so I don't usually use their products. But oh no!, this body wash smells soo nice. When I think of Soap&Glory I think sweet and sickly smells but this is the first time I've came across this scent. It is fresh and has a musky tone. It's a pretty big mini bottle so I hope to use it lots of times.

Day 2: Balmi lip Balm in Mint.
-I've heard lots about these and I love the look of them. They are always compared to the EOS Lip Balms and people have different opinions of which is better. This one is cone shaped so really easy to apply. I don't really like the mint flavour and it's supposed to have a tingling fresh effect. However, my lips haven't got used to it yet but so far it seems reeeeally soft. 

Day 3: Mavala Nail Polish in 53 London. 
- I was excited to find this behind door 3 because I love Mavala nail polishes. It's a bold red colour and I can't wait to wear it for Christmas time, yey soon!

Day 4: Nina Ricci perfume sample of Nina L'Eau. 
- I have always loved the Nina Ricci fragrances and I finished a bottle of this about a year ago. It feels great to have it back. It's such a beautiful and elegant smell. 

Day 5: Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation in Ivory. 
- I know that everyone raves about the powder of this and they say it's a miracle worker. Luckily for my it came in the shade Ivory which is perfect for my skin. It's only a small sample tube but I don't usually wear foundation so it's great for just trying out. 

Day 6: Vichy Idealia Life Serum. 
-This is new to Vichy and Vichy is the sister brand to La Roche-Posay (which is a brand I love) so this is trustworthy. I used this once and I was wary of it because it smelt frangranced. There was a little sting when I applied it and I couldn't really seem much of a definite effect. On the bright side- it was a bit glittery.  This stuff isn't really for my kind if skin though so it won't be something I use all of the time. 

Day 7: Paco Rabanne perfume sample of Black XS
-I didn't expect the smells that came from this. The Paco Rabanne fragrances have never really drawn to me but this one was quite different to what I thought it would be. It's a caramel, heavy smell. I like it but I think it's a bit sickly for me. 

I would recommend these calendars for next Christmas because they are soo exciting. 

If you have one of these calendars, which has been your favourite gift so far? Let me know.
