Boots Advent - Days 1-7

Advent has finally begun and I am seriously enjoying my Boots Advent Calendar. I have a well timed  birthday and was able to get this as a gift from my boyfriend meaning that I didn't have to shell out the £30 that this cost. So far I am really enjoying my daily beauty treat.

Day 1 - Soap&Glory Clean Girls

I love Soap&Glory and their body washes are always excellent. This one smells lovely and I was especially impressed at the size. Obviously this is sample size but contains a really decent 75ml of product. 

Day 2 - Balmi

I have always wanted to try one of these lip balms so I was delighted to see this behind door 2! I got the coconut one which smells lovely however I did see that different varieties were also available in the calendar. This is full size. 

Day 3 - Mavala Nail Polish

I haven't heard of this brand before but, then again, I rarely use nail polish. This is one of their minis but still a great sized sample. The colour is called London, a bright red and everyone got the same shade as far as I know! 

Day 4 - Nina Ricci, Nina

A very small sample size here but I do love Nina and I haven't had it in a while so it will be nice to use it again for a few days. 

Day 5 - Rimmel Stay Matte

I had a little laugh when I saw this because I have been raving about this foundation recently! I love it and I'm fully converted! My sample is in ivory and I use a darker shade but I will use this to brighten my eyes. I am not sure if other shades were available or not. 

Day 6 - Vichy Serum 

I got 3 of these in last months Glossybox and have heard amazing things about it. I haven't got around to using them yet but having 4 will mean I can get a decent use of it and see if it works for my skin. 

Day 7 - Pacco Rabanne Black XS

Another tiny sample here and a perfume that I have had many times before but it's lovely so I will definitely get use out of it!
