My Feelunique 12 days of Christmas Advent Calendar

I was lucky enough to win this wonderful 12 Days of Christmas Advent calendar from BEAUTYONTRIAL and thought I would share my experience with you.

1

On the First Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Today my door number 1 opened to reveal 50 ml Roger & Gallet shower cream in a fleur de figuier scent.
This is a lovely sweet fruity smelling creamy shower product. It is a white colour creamy texture that dos lather up when applied with a bath sponge or scrubby thing. My skin smelled fresh and the scent did linger subtly on my skin after drying. My skin feels soft, clean and not at all tight or dried out.
This is a sulfate and soap free product that has shea butter t moisturise the skin as well. All their products are made with up to 95% natural ingredients and 100% distilled precious essences with beneficial properties.

On the Second Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Day two door presented me with a Decleor Hydra Floral medium multi protection BB cream with SPF 15. The tube holds 10 ml but a full sized tube is 40 ml and costs around £20 so this is good amount to try it out.
Luckily the colour matched my skin tone perfectly and gave a good balance coverage. I applied this after cleansing, toning and moisturising and it spread easily and stayed put all day long after I applied a little loose powder.It smells gorgeous, sweetly floral and makes my skin smell lovely. I can smell it for a while on my face but after a short time it does fade. I like the coverage and also like the fact you get sun protection of SPF15 which all helps to keep those damaging rays away.
It has five benefits: 1. Moisturises skin for 24 hours, 2. Illuminates and evens out the complexion, 3. Refines the skin’s texture and corrects blemishes, 4. Contains SPF15 to protect against UVA/UVB rays and 5. Protects against pollution and environmental factors.

3

On the Third Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Door three's offering was a 50 ml Coconut Oil Body lotion from Palmer's. This has no sulphates, phthalates mineral oils, gluten, parabens or dyes.This is a lovely creamy coconut smelling body lotion that makes my skin feels lovely soft, smooth and well moisturised. It says it keeps skin moisturised for 24 hours and I would say that is true as my legs still look moisturised and feel soft the next day after I have applied this in the evening after my bath.

 

 

4

On the Fourth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Behind door four was a hair product from Percy & Reed. This was a tube holding 30 ml of Perfecting Wonder balm which is a lovely leave in balm, conditioner that helps to make your hair style more easily, smooth it and also condition it. The full sized product holds 75 ml and costs £18. The product looks a bit cloudy but colourless like some face serums but it is the consistency of a lotion. It smells lovely fresh and slightly floral so make my hair smell nice too. It is not sticky or tacky at all and my hair combs through still and it does feel as though there is only conditioner in my hair and not heavy at all. According to the company it will add moisture, shine, smoothness, definition, softness, light hold, high humidity protection and manageability to your hair and I am certainly happy with mine.

5

On the Fifth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Opening door five and I saw a neat little glass jar with screw top lid. This was tricky to get out and once I managed to get it out I found something from a brand I had never heard of. This was Ole Hendriksen – Truth Sugar glow polishing mask in jar that held 15 mls. The full sized product comes in the same jar but bigger and holds 100 ml and costs around £30.
I think this is a polishing mask for the face but may be wrong. It has lost of lovely natural ingredients including, Raw Sugar for polishing,Pomegranate seeds to deeply cleanse and exfoliate ,Honey which is a natural humectant and soothes the skin,Rosehips full of Vitamins A and C & omegas 3,6 and finally Pumpkin extract with natural enzymes which exfoliate dull skin and help to smooth skin's texture.
It looks the colour of honey and is a similar consistency but it smells fruity and fresh. It feels really gentle on my skin and after using it my skin felt smooth, looked more alive and felt clean and fresh.

6

On the Sixth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Day six door was hiding a Balance Me Instant Lift Pore Minimiser in a small 5 ml tube which sells for £10. The full sized version holds 15 ml and costs £22. This is a 99% natural product that is a kind of primer which minimises pores and smooths fine lines so giving you a smoother pallet to apply your make up on to. It also boosts the skin's collagen giving a plumper smoother look. You can use this alone or use it before applying your make up. It doesn't fill pores but the Acacia Gum helps to plump and tighten the skin and blur enlarged pores. The Acemlla Oleracea Extract relaxes muscle contractions so helping to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The Hyaluronic Acid instantly smooths and plumps for a smoother skin surface. I found this really did give my skin a smother look and made my make up last better and stopped it going into the pores and fine lines on my face.

7

On the Seventh Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Behind door number seven was a golden coloured box with a glass screw top jar inside. This was a jar of Nuxe “Reve de miel” lip balm with 15 g of this honey coloured rich fruity scented balm. This is the full sized product and usually costs around £9.50. I love this balm as it feels rich and healing on my lips. It doesn't slip off after a short time so is perfect for when out and about in cold weather to keep your lips from the cold. When you apply it to your lips you get a slight tingle and really feel like it is feeding my lips and returning them to smooth chap free state. I love this and will certainly be buying this again.

8

 

On the Eighth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Moving on to door eight I found an golden coloured eye shadow which is perfect for Christmas social events. This is a Laura Mercer eye shadow and the official name for the eye shadow shade I have is “Gilded Honey”. I see on the House of Fraser site these eye shadows cost £21 so this is a great little gift.I found that this eye shadow goes on best with a brush and gives a lovely sheen to the part of my eyes just under my eye brows while I wear a darker colour closer to my eye lashes.The colour lasted well and didn't go into the creases of my eyes at all so I was very happy with this door's prize.

9

 

On the Ninth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Behind door nine was full sized Rimmel lipstick in a beautiful deep red colour. The shade is number 510 and is called “The Best of the Best” .These sell on Boots for £6.99 and it is a current shade too.I love the slanted or pointed end as it allows me to get a nice finish. The colour lasts well on my lips and it feels nice and soft and smooth, leaving my lips looking healthy, well coloured but it doesn't feel gloopy or sticky at all. This is a perfect colour for Christmas and gives a good strong colour, not subtle at all.

 

 

10

On the Tenth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

This was not the best door for me as this opened to give me a couple of hair ties. My hair is short so despite the fact that these were seasonal colours of red and white I won't get any use from these. I think my granddaughter will be befitting from these Popbands. They are soft and stretchy and hold your hair but don't leave it with kinks.

 

 

 

11

 

On the Eleventh Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

Behind door eleven was a Bourjois eye shadow in a very similar shade to the Laura Mercer one except this one is glitterier than that one. This once again is a full sized product and the shade is “Originale” 03 which once again is a great shade for parties so perfect for this time of year but just a shame it’s so similar to the Laura Mercer one.On Boots these little pots of Bourjois eye shadows sell for £5.99. Thy are beautifully packed with a silver knob on the front which you use to lift the lid which closes with a magnet nice and securely.Again this goes on easily using a brush and I find that if I layer this over another colour, I get a nice glittery finish over the colour blending to just using this under my eyebrows.

12

On the Twelfth Day of Christmas my calendar gave to me…

My final treat hidden behind door twelve was a tube of Pür correcting Primer in a 10 ml tube. I can only find this on a US site and find that a tube holding 30 ml costs $33 so it is not a chap one.I love this as it has a great radiance to it and apply this onto my cleansed, moisturised face and think it looks great alone with no foundation. I have taken to using his mixed with my BB cream so that I get the full benefit from the lovely sheen in this.This product is coloured and blends with most skin colours and it is a light texture so feels as though you are wearing nothing. It has a nice, pleasantly subtle clean sort of smell.

So there you have my Twelve Days of Christmas Advent calendar which I have thoroughly enjoyed. It was such fun to have a little treat each day and I have found myself some great new products that I will be buying again when these finish.

Ciaté Paint Pots Wait Until Dark Paint Pot

What could have been better for the Halloween week to have been accepted for a trial of this gorgeous nail polish by Ciaté!! This is brand that I have not used before and I was very excited to trial not only a new brand but a colour or varnish that I would not usually choose. Purple varnish is a real statement colour and from the photographs this polish certainly did appeal to my darker side!

When the varnish arrived it was housed in a lovely black oblong box with a cut out window in the front which displays the bottle perfectly inside. The bottle itself is a very clever and appealing design. The glass is curved on the back and is designed to ergonomically sit in your hand for ease of application. The brush has a very practical long lid which makes the holding of the brush and application very easy (there is nothing worse than trying to keep a steady hand when applying polish with a tiny handle). Ciaté state that their brush is flat with 250 bristles which makes application smoother and easier. I loved the little black bow on the front of the bottle which is a lovely aesthetic touch to the overall design.

My hands are most certainly hard working hands overall and with such a dark colour I was dubious as to the capability and staying power of this varnish. With dark colours I always use a base coat to prevent any staining and a top coat to aid longevity of the varnish.

The colour of the varnish inside the bottle was exciting. A dark plum purple with a light shimmer and a pearlescence that gives the dark polish a subtle depth. The application with the brush was certainly easy but the first coat was very thin and watery. My fear was unfounded as the second coat instantly provided the full depth of colour and it is beautiful!! The shimmer is not strong (I maybe would have preferred a little more) but the colour is rich and deep. Application with the long brush was very smooth and although this is not the fastest drying varnish I have used the drying time was good. After the application of my final top coat I was thrilled with results and smooth finish of the colour.

Not only am I a keen gardener I am currently renovating a property and this has certainly put my Ciaté varnish to the test. The top coat I used certainly increases the staying power of my varnish but my hands have taken a cruel battering in recent weeks. This varnish was very resilient, even to the worst treatment of my hands and nails and I gained 4 days of wear before any deterioration showed. This manifested itself in small chips but where the colour was not chipped, it remained visually perfect! Bearing in mind this is not a true gauge for most wearers as you would not usually subject your hands to the level of work that I am currently partaking in.

The varnish is very easy to remove and left no staining at all. The product has a medium price range and its performance is well worth the investment. I have no doubt that this bottle would last a very long time and therefore excellent value for money. A high performer with good looks and performance, perfect for bringing out your inner vamp!!
