Boots advent calander final 10 days

The final 10 days of the 

Boots advent calender

Firstly sorry this is soooo late....too much going on in my life right now....So i kept you up to date with the first 14 days...now the final ten in the run up to Christmas day. A wee bit late I know but this is what weddings and moving house at the same time do for you!! 

Day 15
Day 15 was the seventeen tattoo me eyeliner....amazing product. Really easily applied and lasts forever no smudging what so ever. Did have a slight problem removing it once or twice if I didn't have alot of eye make up remover left but a defo for anyone who needs a liquid liner that lasts.

Day 16
Day 16 was s bit of a disappointment ...it was a handbag sized dotty nail file,cute but just a cheap emery board that's just roughs your nails up!

Day 17

Day 17 was the soap and glory flake away body scrub. Including a mixture of Shea butter, sweet almond oil, peach seed powder, sea salt and sugar this scrub makes for a lush shower/bathing experience. This does exactly what it says on the tin, scrubbed away rough scaley skin leaving the skin super smooth and soft...a must for any bathroom cabinet. A great sized miniature..used up way too quickly though.

Day 18
Day 18 brought me ghost moonlight,  I've said it before and I'll say it again..perfume is a very personal thing and is different on each person. I'm personally not a fan of this brand..bit too strong and musky for me. But a great brand non the less, not impressed with the vial,difficult to open so tends to result in spillage!

Day 19
Day 19 brings a full size pot of Carmex. A beautiful balm which relieves rough dry lips,they even recommend for treatment of cold sores.  It has menthol in it so leaves the lips cool, tingly and smooth. A great full size of a well known brand.

Day 20
Day 20 gave me the mavala glitter polish. A beautiful silver glitter with a rainbow shine. Beautiful colour and sparkle from an old school brand that stands the test of time. I looved it and used it along side my red I had got previously in the calender.

Day 21
Day 21 I received boots botanics heat protection hair serum. Protects hair against heat and frizziness. I was surprised at the size of this serum....it seemed quite a small bottle but you only need to use the tiniest drop. I have quite long hair and only need one pump. I use on damp hair and then either use with heat styling or I leave to dry naturally. It does not leave an oily or sticky residue and smooths really well. It also smells lush.

Day 22
Day 22 brought me a beautiful nude nails inc polish midi. I looove nails inc. Its an amazing brand with gorgeous colours, the polishes last really well and give good coverage with just one coat..although two is always preferable . This colour is perfect for autumn/winter seasons.

Day 23
The day before Christmas eve saw a rather large door :) behind it was the Umberto Gianni glam hair back comb in a bottle. The idea of this product is to give you that back comb effect with out having to create those nasty knots for real, you apply a little to the hair, rough up and go. I have only used this once, to create this affect it kind of sticks the hair in place after you rough it up, which leaves the hair quite sticky and tacky...it did however hold the style quite well. I'm undecided.

Day 24, CHRISTMAS EVE
The last day of my Calendar and i was a little sad if i tell the truth...and a little disappointed with what that day brought me. Yes it was a full size product but i was hoping for something quite spectacular...it was a seventeen BLOW OUT mascara. 'Blow eyelashes out of all proportion with our full bodied SEVENTEEN Blow Out Mascara, with 12x volume and conditioning Argon Oil!'
The mascara is quite a reasonably priced one at just £6.29, I'm very fussy with mascara so once i have found the one i use it to death until discontinued or the formula changes so i am obsessed with the benefit they're real one at the moment. This mascara was of average quality for this price range, i tend to prefer a more plasticky brush these days and this one has a classic bristle brush. It lasted well so if i wasn't able to splash out on the benefit i would more than likely go for this one .

On Christmas eve i also received a Points gift voucher to receive triple points on any of the products from the advent calender. I absolutely loved having a beauty advent calender and highly recommend getting one, the boots one was soo reasonably priced. I may go for a different brand next year and see what that will bring me, I like the excitement of having a product every day rather than the average fattening choc. 
Apologies again for this last instalment taking soo long...currently buying a house, organising my wedding and running the salon i work in.
