Boots Advent - Days 8-14

We are now half way to Christmas and this little beauty treat everyday has been helping me count down quite nicely! There was a slight disappointed this week and another few more perfume samples but, from looking at the sizes of the windows left, these were the last in the calendar. 

Day 8 - Umberto Giannini Pom Pom Pony Band

We knew there was going to have to be at least one disappointment and here it is! I don't tie my hair back and even when I rarely do, it wouldn't be with something like this. The was a big window in the caldendar and so I had been expecting something more interesting like a face mask sachet.

Day 9 - Seventeen Supreme Shine Nail Colour in Miami

After the disappointment of day 8, this was a welcome surprise. I don't often paint my nails due to my extensions but on the rare occasion that I do, this would definitely be a colour I would choose. It's a gorgeous bright pink colour. From looking at Instagram, I think everyone got the same shade of this one.

Day 10 - Orly Bonder Rubberized Basecoat

I'm very intrigued by this product! As I said above, it's rare that I paint my nails but when I do I will definitely give this a go. Orly is a brand I have heard good things about so I look forward to trying this.

Day 11 - Ghost The Fragrance 

A perfume sample is never the most exciting of things to find but the ones in this calendar have been samples I haven't seen before. This one is Ghost which I have bought in the past but only as a gift for my mum. The only thing that I would say is a negative here is the there is no spray on the little bottle which makes application tricky.

Day 12 - Boots Salon Nail Care Nail Shine Solution 

I haven't heard of this before and it looks very interesting. This can be worn on its own or over polish. Occasionally I have a day or two rest between manicures and this would be perfect to give my nails a little boost. 

Day 13 - Vichy Serum for Eyes and Lashes

I have had a lot of Vichy serum samples recently and I have really enjoyed them. This one is for eyes and lashes but doesn't have much English instruction on the packaging so I will have to look it up before use.

Day 14 - Juicy Couture - Couture La La

Judging by the sizes of the windows, this is the last perfume sample in the calendar. I wear Viva La Juicy and I adore it so I'm looking forward to smelling this one. 

What do you think of the calendar so far?
