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!


Moisturiser
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...

Elemis Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser

Over the past few years I have been introduced to a vast variety of brands that I'd of course previously heard about, but had never really had the chance to try out before. One of those brands was Elemis and oh my goodness I can't even express how happy I am that I was introduced to the Elemis world!! Whilst there are a few products I have tried, tested and loved; the one that stood out to me the most was the 'Skin Energising' cleanser from the 'Biotec' range that launched back in 2016. Elemis very kindly gifted me some PR samples, and as I worked my way through those I just knew that I needed to go and stock up on another one of these beauties before it ran out. Now that I've had the opportunity to use the Elemis 'Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser' over quite a prolonged period of time, I felt it time to write a review outlining why it remains to be one of my all-time favourite cleansers to use.

I always associated Elemis as being that which possess a price tag I'm not usually accustomed to spending on skincare. Nevertheless, I actually found with the 'Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser' that the quality is so superior to other cleansers I'd previously tried that it proved to be a lot more cost-per-use effective in comparison.  Two small pumps of this gorgeous cleanser is enough to fully cover my face and neck with ease, and considering it's a hefty 200ml for £40.00, I think that that's pretty impressive. Two pumps and a splash of water later, you're faced with (excuse the pun) a luxuriously nourishing, thick lather which really does feel as though you're treating yourself to a facial each and every time you use it. Not only does it cleanse the skin both beautifully and gently; but it has helped to inject some glow back into my usually sensitive, dull-looking skin - something I wouldn't normally expect from something that doesn't spend all too long on your face in comparison to other, more concentrated products designed for that purpose.
