Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar 2016 – week 1

Liberty Advent 2016_1Yes friends, it’s that time of year where I irritate you all by splashing my Liberty beauty advent calendar all over my Instagram.  I’m not really into the whole Christmas thing this year, so I debated about whether I’d invest in another calendar, but I’m glad I did.  I’m choosing to consider it a countdown until my week off work.

This year, Liberty have treated us with a gorgeous rose gold and blue box, and I’m already super pleased with the contents of week one. Lets see what I got:

Day one – Aveda Hand Relief moisturising cream.  Very much looking forward to using this.  Aveda is a new brand to the Liberty calendar, so we’re already off to a promising start.

Day two – Aurelia Refine and Polis Miracle Balm.  I did genuinely think this was a repeat of the cleanser that I’ve had many a time, so was happy to see it was something else from the brand for me to test.  Have used it once already – very luxurious.

Day three – Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink.  I thought this colour was too dark for me, but it’s perfect!  Another new brand for the calendar – an excellent choice.  You just can’t go wrong with Bobbi Brown products.

Day four – Kiehl’s Amino Acid Shampoo.  It’s always brilliant to find Kiehl’s, and even though I had this last year, I love it so I’m more than happy.

Day five – Jin Soon nail polish in Coquette.  I haven’t heard of this brand before, but Jin Soon is apparently the Nail Guru of New York.  You bet I’m now researching her spas  for my February trip.  Coquette is a lovely cherry red colour.

Day six – Laura Mercier Hydrating primer.  Laura Mercier products are always fantastic, and I love a good primer so very excited to get this.  It provides an excellent base for my foundation and doesn’t get horribly drying.

Day seven – Co Bigelow Rose Salve.  I love Co Bigelow more than any other brand, and although we’ve had the rose salve in the past two boxes, this one is in a tube format so slightly different (although come on Liberty, there are so many other balms to choose from – give us something new!).   Don’t care though – love it!

And incredibly strong start to the month, and I definitely have no regrets.
