Liberty London Beauty Advent Calendar 2019

Despite being a long term lover of Liberty London and an even longer lover of all things skincare, I never dreamed that I would own their infamous beauty advent calendar due to years of it selling out before I could get my hands on it. Nevertheless, here we are and I'm so excited to talk to you today about my very first Liberty London Advent Calendar!

Each year the Liberty London Advent Calendar holds its place as one of the best luxury beauty advent calendars you can get, forming one of the fastest selling luxury calendars on the market. This year, they made 46% more to prolong the stock lists and avoid that release-day stress which worked quite effectively. Throughout the month of November the calendar was still in stock until its eventual sell out at the end of the month.

The Liberty London Beauty Advent Calendar is made using a sturdy, recyclable box that displays the iconic Liberty London advent calendar print on front with the beautiful 'Strawberry Thief' print from the Liberty Classics collection throughout the interior. I don't know about you, but I definitely think this is beautiful enough to keep and reuse for years to come!

Overall, the products included (in opening order) are:

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

Hello everyone! Today I am very excited to be reviewing something I've been lusting over for years, but for some reason never got around to purchasing until a few months back - Embryolisse's 'Lait-Crème Concentré'. Loved by make-up artists for decades, Embryolisse describes this highly praised product as a 'Multi-function nourishing moisturiser'. At first I was a little confused as to what that meant exactly, but after a few months of daily use I've come to discover what a wonderfully versatile 'moisturiser' this truly is. I'm going to structure this review a little differently to my others and talk about my thoughts in relation to its different uses, rather than a general overview. I'm hoping that this way you can get a feel for just how truly fabulous this little beauty is to have as part of your skincare stash!

What I purchased the Lait-Crème Concentré for - it's moisturising properties are actually quite surprising. For some reason I assumed this to possess a really thick, creamy texture (something which just sounds all too inviting for dehydrated skin), but it's actually quite runny in consistency! If you're like me and you often associate thickness with higher nourishment, then I wouldn't be put off by this at all. In fact, I've found many benefits to using a moisturiser that has a lighter, more milky consistency, the main of which being its spreadability and short absorption time. A little truly does go a long way and can be built up on any areas where you may perhaps need the extra help. I have been applying this after cleansing with my rediscovered Elemis cleanser (review here) and have found that within a minute I'm left with a gorgeously smooth, fresh face with no grease or moisturiser residue left over...

A Long-Overdue Book Haul

Hello everyone! As you can tell from the title and simply orgasmic book-filled photos - today it's book haul time! eeeeeep! I've been on a spending ban for the longest time now, which in general actually proved to be pretty manageable... until it came to books. I don't know what it is but when it comes to books - old or new - I just bubble up with excitement and really do struggle to walk past without a cheeky purchase... or two. Anyhoo, I decided to treat myself after what have been an incredibly stressful few months, and thought it would be a fun idea to share with you what I decided to pick up!

'The Dry' by Jane Harper - Labelled by many as 'The most gripping crime thriller of 2017' I simply had to pick this up as a present for my crime-thriller-loving mum. Once she's finished with it I may even give it a little go myself as crime fiction is not usually a genre I venture into, but something I absolutely love to watch so who knows! Perhaps this'll prove to be the perfect stepping stone into a new world of literature?
'Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone: Illustrated Edition' by J.K. Rowling, Illustrated by Jim Kay - I'm so embarrassed about this one because Lord knows I love my Harry Potter, and Lord knows I love my books. I don't know why it took me so long to get around to purchasing this absolutely gorgeous piece of work but alas, each time I came across the beautiful cover I was just never in a position to pick it up. However...
