Boots No.7 Beauty Calender £35 (contents worth £130) Sold out online, but may still be available in some stores.

Day 1
 Skin Illuminator Radiance Boosting Beauty Fluid 10ml
worth £3.67
Has a slight shimmer which will reflect light to give a healthy glow on the skin.

Day 2
 High Shine Lip Crayon in shade 'Daydreamer'
worth £4.65
Gives a nice sheer on the lips and is moisturising.

Day 3
Eye Colour Brush
rrp £7.25
I like brushes so happy to see this included. The bristles are fairly soft.

Day 4
Youthful Eye Serum 7ml
Worth £9.75
Always good to see an eye cream, this small sample is half the full sized, and will last quite a while.

Day 5
Stay Perfect Nail Colour 4ml in shade 'Highland Mist'
rrp full size £6
Cute little polish in a nice pinky shade.

Day 6
Lash Impact Intense Volume Control Mascara 4.5ml
worth £8.68
I have a few mascaras open right now so won't be using this until the others have been used up.

Day 7
 Stay Perfect Eyeshadow 1.5g 
£9.50 for a trio
This doesn't say what shade it is but I like it.

Boots No.7 Advent Calender days 1-7

Tesco Beauty Advent Calender Days 1-7

Tesco Coundown to Christmas Advent Calendar was £50 (now reduced to £25) 

Day 1
Eylure Naturalites Lashes 116
rrp £5
I never wear fake lashes and these will be no exception, will pass them on to someone that can get some use out of them.

Day 2
 Tanya Burr Nail Polish 12ml in 'Midnight Sparkles'
rrp £3.99
This is a nice purple shade with a touch of shimmer, but not something I will use.

Day 3
Paul Smith Extreme Eau De Toilette 5ml
worth £1.25
Italian mandarian and blackcurrant mixed with freesia. The base note of amber and musk mix with sandalwood and cedar for sensual but feminine undertones.
It's quite a nice fragrance which I think will be easy to wear.

 Day 4
Sue Moxley Spot Light Lipgloss in shade 'Bombshell' 8ml
has an rrp of £4.99 but can currently be bought for £1.99 at FragranceDirect.
As you can see its a very light pink shade. Comes with a little mirror attached to the side of the tube. I've yet to try it so not sure yet how sticky this gloss will be.

 Day 5
Katy Perry Meow Solid Eau de Parfum in Locket
rrp £7.99
This is the cutest thing! It comes in a little black drawstring bag and has a chain attached if you so desired to wear it (which I won't) It is a lovely scent with a mix of fruity and floral.

 Day 6
Organic Mini Soap from The Little Soap Company 17g
worth 62p
Not a brand i've heard of before but will definitely be looking into more.
Suitable for face & body, 100% suitable for both vegans and vegetarians.
Totally free from detergents, SLS, alcohol, parabens, sorbates and silicones.

 Day 7
Candy Kitten Turquoise EDT 20ml
A bright burst of citrus from bergamot and apple, followed by an enchanting heart comprised of earthy cedar wood and tender jasmine.
This is a nice scent but not something I'm likely to use.

 Tesco Advent Calender Days 1-7

YOU Beauty Advent Calender Days 1-7

Day 1
Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser & Muslin Cloth 30ml
worth £5.50
I have a few samples of this already, tried it once and my skin felt dry and broke out after using it so I will probably pass this on.

Day 2
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer 30ml
worth £17.50
I love Laura Mercier and own this particular product already. Works well as a base for my makeup. 

Day 3
Molten Brown Orange & Bergamot Body Wash 30ml
worth £1.80
This has got a lovely strong orange scent, really nice.

Day 4
Essie Nail Polish 13.5ml from the Encrusted Treasures Collection
Shade Ignite The Night
Worth £9.99
I'm not one to wear polish much but I quite like this sparkly polish, will be good for a night out.

Day 5
Caudalie Nourishing Body Lotion 50ml
worth £4
I own many products from this brand and love this body lotion, its not overly perfumed either just a subtle scent which is great.

Day 6
Masque Eclat Express Radiant Glow Express Mask 10ml
worth £12.17
Contains red & white clay. Full size 60ml costs £73 so I'm hoping I don't like this mask too much! But hopefully I can get 2 uses out of this sample.

Day 7
Aromatherapy Associates Relax Candle 9cl
worth £16
Contains West Indian bay for comforting and Myrrh for fortifying.
Also comes with a £10 off code with no minimum spend at
