For those of you that have been loyal readers since last year, and for that I thank you, you will remember me posting about last years No7 Advent Calender. I have to say compared to a lot of others last year that were a total flop... Benifit *cough* paperclips *cough* it really did stand up against its competitors as one of the more affordable calenders on offer. So as you can imagine I was exited to pick up the No7 advent calender this year. Apologies for the photography in these posts being far from perfect - I take these photos in the morning when I get up at 5am for work... otherwise I would forget!
Behind door number one, which is ever so sparkly, is the No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream. This was in last years advent and I absolutely adore it. My skin is so dry in the winter. Since becoming pregnant I seem to have developed severe dry patches on my skin. For the past few days using this day cream has really helped.
Underneath door number two is the No7 Beautiful Skin Body Wash. The scent of this is really nice. I've only used it the once since collecting it from the calender however it does have a lovely scent. I'm exited to try it further!
Number three held a real beauty. No7's Instant Illusions Airbrush Away Primer. Just as I was about to go out and order a new primer! I've been using this for the past week for work. It has held up against my usual L'oreal and Maybelline primers so I may be converted. We will have to see how it goes!
Inside number four was another goodie that was featured in last years calender - the No7 Beautiful Skin Radiance Exfoliator. I must admit I was glad to see this again. It left my skin feling beautifully soft last year and assisted with the horrible dry flakey skin I develop during a winter. I shall definitely be using this little beauty again.
Number five was an absolute pain to get out! I had to resort to using a knife to prying it free... it was the No7 Shine and Tint in a lovely pink shade. Not a colour I would usually reach for however I love having variety I can reach for in my collection. Gloss is also a slightly friendlier option for my dry lips in these colder months.
Well if I thought number five was heard to open... number 6 was even worse! I once again had to delve into my knife drawer and use a thinner bladed knife to pry it free (don't try this at home kids). Luckily it was worth it. The photo doesn't pick it up to well but it is a lovely iridescent purple shade. Last year the No7 calender held so many beautiful eyeshadow shades that were perfect for chucking in my bag and perfect shimmery shades for the holiday season.
Finally for this post we have door number seven. Behind door number seven was this lovely red polish. Perfect for the festive season! I tried a few of the No7 polishes from the calender last year and I absolutely loved them so I can't wait to try out this gel finish formula.
Overall No7 have had a really impressive first seven days! Here is hoping the next seven willbe just as impressive!
