See what was behind the last five doors of my You Beauty Calendar* This has been so much fun and jam packed full of some incredible products. Some brands that I have used before and many that are new to me. I now have 23 products to try and review for you over the coming weeks. Did you have a beauty Advent this year, if so which one did you have?

Q The Fine Fragrance Body Spray

Behind door 20 was this Q Body Spray* – this smells so pretty and is perfect for having in your handbag. At first I thought it was a dry shampoo, but was pleased to discover it was a body spray. Q is a brand I have never heard of, I took this away with me over Christmas and found the scent lasted a long time considering it was a body spray. I was shocked at how reasonable this is & will be buying a few more. This is a full size product and costs £2.29

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil

Behind door 21 was this Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil* this is a lightweight dry oil which not only acts as a heat protectant but eliminates frizz, sounds ideal. It also can be used as a treatment to strengthen, soften and repair hair, this sounds like an all round product. This sample is 25ml. Full size is 125ml & costs £20.50

NEOM Hand Lotion

Behind door 22 was this lovely NEOM Moroccan Blush Rose Hand Cream I have used this hand cream before and love it. It smells grown up and luxurious. This is a welcomed addition to my winter skincare regime. I use so much hand cream over the winter months and will be leaving this one by my bedside. NEOM is such a luxurious brand and I’ve promised that in 2014 I will treat myself to one of their candles. This sample is 50ml. Full size is 75ml & costs £20.00.

Weleda Skin Food

Behind door 23 was this Weleda Skin Food. This is a cult product and is formulated with plant extracts to sooth, repair and nourish dry skin. This is ideal for this time of year. This sample is 10ml and the full size is 75ml for £8.95

Therapie Roques Oneil Himalayan Detox Salts


Behind the final door 24 was these Therapie Roques Oneil Himalayan Detox Salts – These are the perfect way to relax. They smell soothing and fresh. These salts have been formulated to combat insomnia and help balance energy flow. I am going to enjoy taking a relaxing bath with these. This sample is 100g. Full size is 400g & cost £35.00.

I’ve been overwhelmed by the quality of the products in this Advent Calendar and will very much enjoy using them all. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas & wish you all the best for the New Year x

Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.
