Dee's Favourite Christmas Presents
Sorry for the lack of posting, I've been sick over Christmas and also desperately trying to get my hands on a camera for the blog! I have a few lovely things that I was lucky enough to receive for Christmas which I'm finally able to share.
The large orange box in the picture is a gift set of Dr Organic Manuka Honey shampoo and conditioner that also came with a free hairbrush. My mam got this for me as I always rob this shampoo off her when she buys it - it is divine! It really softens my hair which is really long and thick, and the smell is just gorgeous - my boyfriend actually complimented me on it which is always a good sign! I'm fairly sure this range is available in a lot of pharmacies and I definitely recommend it.
The blue Snoopy tube was a fairly random stocking filler - a body lotion from H&M. I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It smells delicious and fresh and is a very decent body lotion with a fairly thick texture. I'll definitely use it up and best of all it was only about €3!
I also got a gorgeous necklace from my Mam which I included in the picture simply because I love it so much :) I haven't opened the soap yet but can't wait to try it - the scent is mimosa and pomegranate which sounds good!
Finally I also received the 'Justine Case' mini kit from Benefit. I actually had this before (about two years ago) but I was happy to receive it again. It contains four mini products: California Kissin' minty lip gloss, Eyecon brightening eye cream, the infamous Benetint, and also Some Kind-a Gorgeous cream foundation. The products are certainly mini...to be honest I think that the little tubes are ridiculously small! I do like this set overall, but the only product I would buy the large version of would be Benetint. It's a gorgeous berry shade that is long lasting and really suits my skin tone. It works equally well on lips or cheeks!
