Over the festive period I’ve decided to switch up my blogging schedule as I have been really struggling to balance blogging with my assignments!
So today I bring to you the first instalment of my Space NK Apothecary Beauty Advent Calendar unveiling.
First up I got this beauty advent calendar as a free gift when I spent over £250 at Space NK online in November. So I thought this was the perfect excuse to stock up on Christmas presents for myself and others…. I ordered a lot….and Dave has squirrelled away most of the goodies for Christmas.
This calendar claims to have over £150 of value which is fantastic. It also contains a whole host of premium beauty brands which I have been wanting to try for a long, long time.
So what did I get in the first week?
Day 1 – £50 SpaceNK Gift Card
Yep, you’ve read that correctly. On December the 1st I got £50 to spend on SpaceNK. What a fantastic treat. I used it to buy a cleanser from Rodial and a highlighter kit from Becca. I’m sure these will feature on the blog soon.
Day 2 – 111 Skin Space Anti Age Day Cream
Now I have to admit that this a brand I had never heard of. However, after some searching on SpaceNK I discovered that a full size £50 ml tub of this cream will set you back £150!! This little pot is a generous 15ml sample so great value. I am expecting astonishing results with a price tag like that!
Day 3 – Smith & Cult Lip Gloss The Lovers
I have heard great things about this brand, mostly coveting their nail polishes. This lip gloss is beautiful. It has a lovely consistency, not too sticky and deeply hydrating. I love the peachy pink colour too. Lovely little addition.
Day 4 – Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil
Sunday Riley is a brand I have wanted to try for a while but the hefty price tag had put me off. This is a great way to try an expensive brand without the considerable financial commitment! This is a luxurious blue coloured facial oil which I cannot wait to use, especially over the festive period to perk up my skin!
Day 5 – Oribe Imperial Blow Out Transformative Styling Creme
Oribe is a phenomenal haircare brand. I absolutely love their dry texturizing spray and this is no exception. This is a luxurious styling crime which adds volume and texture to your hair. Love it.
Day 6 – Radical Skincare Anti-Aging Restorative Moisture
I love trying new skincare so I love that this beauty advent calendar is heavy on skincare.
Day 7 – BYREDO Bal D’Afrique
This is a new brand to me but I absolutely love this perfume. It is a generous 12ml size and will a spray which is great to keep in my handbag when I need to freshen up.
Do check back for next weeks installment! I hope you have enjoyed this post. Have you tried anything mentioned? Which beauty advent calendar have you got this year? Let me know your thoughts as I love reading and replying to your messages.
