Beauty advent calendars have become increasingly popular over the past few years and I honestly love them. Who doesn't love opening a new beauty product every day? With my birthday being so close to Christmas, my mum got me Net-A-Porter's beauty advent calendar as a gift knowing that I would adore it (she wasn't wrong!). Here's what I got in the first week.
Dec 2: Sachajuan Hair Mask
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I do little self care nights every Friday and I always deep condition my hair, so this hair mask was a blessing for me considering I usually just use conditioner. Once again, it smells divine and my hair felt so soft after I used it. My only issue was it was super tough to get out of the bottle with wet hands after a shower, as the bottle's really sturdy - both a blessing and a curse.
Dec 3: Marc Jacobs Lipstick
Can you imagine my excitement when an actual Marc Jacobs lipstick was in here?! And a NUDE?!! I felt like I'd arrived in heaven on the morning of December 3rd. It's a super flattering colour and is a little darker than what I usually go for which is perfect for the winter months (shade 'No Angel'), and it lasted all day when I wore it.
Dec 6: Goldfaden Brightening Elixir
I love brightening products, probably because my skin is insanely dull. I haven't given this a go yet because my skin's pretty sensitive and I don't want to overdo it with the new products, but again I'll be talking about it on my Insta stories.
