Beauty Advent Calendars – week 1

I’ve decided to battle my two beauty calendars against each other.  Who will win week one?

Liberty 15 week 1

Day one – Byredo Bal D’Afrique hand cream.  I’ve used this a couple of times and it smells wonderful.  And expensive.
Day two – Ren Moroccan Rose body wash.  Ren is always a winner and is one of my favourite brands.
Day three – Escentric Molecules 03.  Husband has already stolen this from me.
Day four – Hourglass Film Noir mascara.  Hourglass is one of those expensive brands that everyone seems to love so it’ll be good to try this.
Day five – Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant.  I’ve already been playing with this and it is so good.  Weird, but good.
Day six – Aromatherapy Associates De-stress muscle gel.  I think I’ll take this on holiday with me to use after a long day of walking about.
Day seven – Co Bigelow rose salve.  A repeat from last year.  Don’t even care though, as this is my favourite lip balm in the entire world.

Marks and Spencer
M&S week 1
Day one – Philip Kingsley Elasticizer.  Bringing out the big guns on day one!  This is the geranium and neroli version so will be interesting to see if that makes a difference, but this is a strong product to start
Day two – Burt’s Bees lemon butter cuticle cream.  Another solid item.  Will look forward to slathering this on my hands.
Day three – Cowshed Grumpy Cow body lotion.  I am more into the Knackered Cow scent, but I’m liking Grumpy Cow too.
Day four – Pür Minerals Volume Vixen mascara.  Coincidentally, another mascara for day four.  I haven’t heard of Pür Minerals before.  Is the umlaut over the U for function or design.  That’s my main question.
Day five – Leighton Denny nail repair cream.  I see Leighton Denny products in M&S fairly often, but I’ve only just discovered that this isn’t the woman from Gossip Girl.  That’s Leighton Meester.  Oh.
Day six – M&S Nuit Parfum.  This is apparently a perfume designed by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.  And yet is smells like something an old lady would wear.
Day seven – Rituals Zensation shower gel.  This looks fun – a gel that turns into a foam.  I have a feeling Husband will be stealing this as well.

Week One Winner

Mainly for the Dermalogica and Co Bigelow.  Although M&S put up a very good fight.
