My 1st ever Beauty Advent Calendar | Charlotte Tilbury


If you've been following me on Snapchat : jacqlibra you know that my sister brought me back a Charlotte Tilbury Book of Makeup Magic from her European trip.  Yes I made her go to London for that, and not allowed her to remove the packaging.  This is my first ever beauty Advent calendar (it is not that big in our market yet) and I kind of 'bite the bullet' for it isn't cheap.  Gladly, the box arrived safely and intact.  I did glance through the description on Selfridges.com (where I got mine) about what's inside, and it contains both skin care and make up products.  *Hint: I'm so looking forward to the full size lipstick*

Originally I planned to open a box every other day, probably on the odd days, until the 23rd; but we'll see how it goes.



Box 1: Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask

Bullet Points:
- Made in Switzerland.  15 ml.
- "Lifts, Smoothes, Brightens & Tightens Pores for Baby Skin."
- Smells very nice.  Subtle and pleasant.
- Pale pink.
- Easy to apply.  I did it with fingers.
- Easy to wash off.  I did it with a muslin cloth.
- Not drying.
- Result was balanced skin - not as baby soft as marketed.  I didn't have much sleep and have two breakouts.  The mask didn't dry out  my dry spots and kind of calmed down my breakouts.
- First impression?  Because it smells good and is easy to wash off I'll be happy to use it again.

Have you got any advent calendar?  
(I also have another tea one. Made me feel so granny.)

Do you do the 12-window type, 12 days in a row from 1st to 12th December, or how do you do it?  
(I've actually thought of breaking it open after Christmas, like 12 days of Christmas, but I can't wait...)
Beautiful wishes,
Lazy silly Jacq :")
