Selfridges Advent Calender - Week 3 (Days 17 -24)

For Week 1 and Week 2 click the links.
Here is the 3rd and final week of beauty treats from behind the doors.
December 17th - Lancome Juicy Tube in Marshmallow
A pale pink lipgloss with shimmer, can use on it's own or over lipstick.
December 18th - Lancome Visionariare Serum
Lancome's answer to Estee Lauder's Perfectionist. anti-wrinkle treatment that smooths lines and even skin tone out. Looking forward to trying this.
December 19th - YSL Froever Youth Liberator serum
Another big launch of 2012 - Suppose to firm, smooth for within the skin. Another one I'm looking forward to trying out.
December 20th - Lancome Bi-Facil eye make up remover
Love this product and great timing as my No.7 dupe is about to run out. It's an oil based remover that you shake together and apply using a pad, removes waterproof make up like a breeze.
December 21st - Lancome Genefique Yeux
Lifting and firming eye cream, a little goes a long way and very much needed after the party season.
December 22nd - Keihls Midnight Recovery Concentrate
I've been waiting for this window as I love this product and it is on my wish list invest in. I had got a sample a few months back in my YOU Latestinbeauty box and had fallen for it soft and refreshing skin properties then.
December 23rd - YSL Opuim
I think I am one of the rare people who like Opium, it's is historic perfume that has lasted while a majority have come and gone. It is a rich spicy Oriental, I would wear this more for evening.
December 24th - Keihl's Creme De Corps
After already trying some their products and hearing this is their 'hero' product that they are known for, I am excited to get this to try out. I already know I'll probably will want it!
I do like the thinking behind these calenders, I am stocked up for the new few months. I do think the RRP of £82 is very steep for what you get as most of the sizes are what you get with a majority of GWP's.
My thanks still goes to British Beauty Blogger for being a winner of her competition to win this as well as a set of Lancome Christmas crackers, which have now gone to my best mate as we had our annual Christmas met up today and spent the afternoon catching up on babies (she's due in April) and gossipping.


  1. I had not even heard of this! Looks amazing, so sad I didn't get the chance to have it over December! Great post! xo

  2. I missed out on all the advent calenders as just couldn't justify the price. I think they are a lovely idea though. I hope the high street bring out some next year. x

  3. loved reading about your products! some new-to-me ones too!
