Beauty Advent Calendar Openings – Day 7

Week 1 of calendar openings done,  I hope you are enjoying seeing the items as much I am. 

I didn’t really know what to expect from Paul & Joe today I am not going to lie but I was quite confused by this one…. My other half did remind me on the back of the box was a list of the contents so I had a squint at the code on the back of the product to discover this is a little eyeshadow, it’s pretty cute really. 

I wonder how many more there will be as the little pot I got would surely be too big just to hold one?!  It swatched fairly well not massively pigmented but I would say it’s the kind of shadow if you like just a wash of colour & you possibly get away with this as a highlighter? The swatch above was a couple of layers where I was quite heavy handed.  I actually have my work Xmas do this weekend so I think I will give this a try. Thinking about it an idea just popped into my head that you could probably dab a bit of this to the centre of your lip on top of your favourite lipstick. 

I am beginning to feel that M&S has read my mind over the last 6 months it is so weird what is behind each door is starting to turn into things I genuinely wanted to pick up at some point. So today is a sunscreen which to be honest is perfect because months ago I wanted to introduce a sunscreen into my skincare routine to wear daily but I couldn’t figure out what part of my routine I would use it,  before or after my normal moisturiser?  And also I couldn’t settle on which brand to buy so it never happened. 

But now I have this I can introduce it & get that extra protection especially now in my early 30’s I am starting to see pigmentation appear. I have been aware of Ultrasun for years via QVCUK but never made a purchase but from what I hear & read its a good trusted brand.  Here is a little something written about the face SPF30;

“Advanced combination of UVA and UVB protection (SPF30) plus powerful antioxidants, restores optimal moisture levels, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Features incredibly fast-absorbing, lightweight and non-greasy textures. Ideal for very sensitive skin. 

-with antioxidants 
-no perfume 
-no emulsifiers 
-no preservatives 
I am happy to have this in my life it’s about time I better protect my skin,  though for the record I am not the sort of person that loves being in direct sunlight for me it’s more about general protection being out & about exposed when you don’t really realise. 

I hope you liked the post guys,  much love xx
