Beauty Advent Calendar Round Up Days 16-20 – M&S 

Hello everyone! Welcome to what has become my most favourite of the four calendars, M&S! For the first one, including packaging review, head here. Then head on over to days 6-10 and 11-15.

16. Philip Kingsley Elasricizer

Retails: £17

My review: TBD

This is basically a treatment that you soak the hair in before washing. I haven’t tried it yet so I can’t comment just yet on how it works. I’m not sure if it’s something I would repurchase, as £17 seems a bit steep. However, it depends how much product is required per use and how often you use it, also depends on how well it works. I’ll definitely come back with a review on this soon. I’ve been cautious to use it before heading out in case it makes my hair greasy as I have really oily hair and barely put products in it.

17. Ren – Evercalm Day Cream

Retails: £8.40 (£28 for 50ml)

My review: 5/5

I really enjoyed this cream. Ren is a brand I’ve heard of before but haven’t had a chance to try their products as they are a more expensive brand. After trying this, I’m definitely convinced in investing. It has a very natural smell which is good, especially for sensitive skin as it’s not heavily fragranced. It’s suitable for vegetarians and vegans and it’s definitely a product I’ll keep using. I think I’ll even go on to try other products in their range.

18. Sakura Body Cream

Retails: £6

My review: 3.5/5

I got one of these a couple of weeks ago in one of my subscription boxes, same size, so I’ve had quite a while to try it out. It’s nice and it smells nice, however it’s not something I would go completely mad over. At £6 it’s pretty cheap, but my usual product is the Body Shop body butter and for £14, it lasts a LOT longer. I would probably purchase again though if I was to switch it up.

19. Percy & Reed – Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm

Retails: £7.20 (£18 for 75ml)

My review: 3/5 but also TBD

This is another product I still need to give a proper chance to. I also got this in a subscription box, same size, but hadn’t tried it yet. Honestly, I don’t put a lot of products in my hair because it’s so greasy, so I didn’t jump at the chance to try it. I will try it for the purposes of review though. When I put this in my hair for the first time, it felt a little strange. It was a little tacky and took a while to dry, but once it did, it smelled really nice. I can’t speak for how well it works just yet.

20. Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream

Retails: £2.20 (£22 for 50ml)

My review: 4.5/5

I really enjoy this cream. The idea of it is it combats 10 signs of aging and makes you look more refreshed. It states it can take up to 4 weeks for visible results. Obviously I haven’t used it for that long yet and I’m not sure you would get any more than 2 weeks out of the sample given. However, I do like this cream and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling oily which is always a plus, most products do! I’ll keep using it and update in the future though.

That’s us! Thanks for tuning in to this installment of the calendar round up. Don’t forget to check the other three if you missed them! See you on Christmas Day for the final round up! Merry Christmas everyone.

Love & Laughter
