    Champneys As Good As New Bubble Heaven 300ml - this was a 1/2 price Boots item so I must have had it for 2 years at least, it smelt lovely and bubbled up well. Only 1 more bottle of bubble bath in the stash now and if we decide to keep our bath when we renovate the bathroom next year I will be making my own bath oils.

    December PP List

    Le Soft Stick Perfume  in Artist
    Soap & Glory Righteous Butter - b/f from November
    Mandara Spa Butter Collection Body Lotion
    L'oreal Ever Riche Nourishing Hair Mask
    Peppermint Foot Cream
    Miss Sporty Dr Balm Lip Balm
    Philosophy Amazing Grace Shower Gel 480ml



    My 7 by Christmas list
    1. Gosh Brow Kit (has 3 shades and a wax but I only use the darkest shade for brows) b/f from the last challenge
    2. Burts Bees Lip Shimmer - Strawberry b/f from the last challenge
    3. Poppy King Lip Crayon in Smiling
    4. Barbara Daly Trade Secrets Sheer lip melt in Adorable b/f from the last challenge
    5. Clinique High Impact Mascara mini
    6.  Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Powder Pink b/f from the last challenge
    7.  Miss Sporty Stick Concealer


    My updated lists. I should finish the perfume, hair mask and body lotion from my PP list this month, the others might need to be carried over.

    It is the end of the Christmas challenge and I am calling the mascara done although I will carry on using it for the rest of the month.  The Pot Rouge is almost done but I only use a tiny bit so I will have to carry it over along with the other items, the Poppy King lip crayon is small and under normal circumstances would have been finished, the Barbara Daly one has hardly been touched.  I will do a 7 by spring challenge and carry them over.

    The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension Cream: Hard to make a verdict. I feel my face looked brighter after regular use but I didn't like the texture or residue left on the skin after the use. I love Vitamin C in my skincare and will definitely be using it going forward but not sure if I would  buy this again easily. Given the price, it was a great value though.

    I love The Inkey List Vitamin C Serum.  It's a lotion consistency and I find it applies better when mixed with my day cream.  I'd say I noticed a remarkable difference practically from the first application.
    Thank you, I want to try it but couldn't find it in my local Boots. I will keep checking.

    1 UU - TBS Vitamin E Hydrating Face Mist. I love this and it hydrates well. WMBA.

    It does seem to sell out a lot in Boots.  I think Cult Beauty sell it too.

    Finish 7 by Christmas
    Kat von D lip lacquer in Lovecraft.  DONE
    Laura Geller Gilded Honey Highlighter DONE
    Too Faced Honey pot eyeshadow from the Natural Eyes palette DONE
    Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb Midnight fragrance DONE
    Colourpop Birthday Cake eyeshadow 
    OPI Do You Take Lei Away lacquer 
    NARS Outlaw blush 



    Mine was a good Project.  The eyeshadow and blush are now being used loosely.  I did finish another eyeshadow today though - Stila Glitter n Glow in Lilac Ice.  It has dried up and I don't want to add anything to it to try and revive it.  I had used a lot of it which was difficult under the circumstances as there have not been many occasions to wear glitter.
    I will only roll over the NARS blush for Finish 5 by Spring as it is so pigmented I only need a tiny bit for each application so will probably take another couple of months to finish.  Here's my list:-
    NARS Outlaw blush - finish
    Urban Decay Bathwater eyeshadow from the Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette (already have pan)
    Smashbox Full Exposure matte brown shadow (already have pan)
    Bare Minerals Warmth bronzer (sample size - came from advent calendar)
    Bare Minerals Swank lip lacquer (stopper it out but it seems to want to go forever). If I finish this early, I'll rotate another lip product in.

    UUs:
    Soap & Glory summer scrubbin' exfoliator - WBA, lathers and exfoliates very well
    Andrex toilet washlets - WMBA but seems to dry out quickly.
    Ecodenta cranberry toothpaste
    Superdrug Black Castor & Shea Replenish shampoo sample - WMB, leaves hair moisturised. 
    Skinfood propolis & bee venom mask - Gift, moisturised nicely without a tacky residue but WNB.
    Bathroom and storage area is looking better with less products, and discovering products that I thought were used up so will continue only buying replacements.

    The hunt for a new SPF has started, hopefully one of the ones I've got recently will be a winner :)
