Birthday Wish List 2019


Despite the title of this post, I’d like to start with a caveat that I’m not under any illusions that I’ll be receiving any of these items on my birthday. I’m very aware of my expensive taste and as such this wish list serves, if anything, as an aspirational list for myself. Things I want, and probably will buy (over time!) but certainly don’t need or expect to receive from anyone else on my birthday.

With the disclosure now over and done with, I can carry on with the post. As you can see my taste is quite mixed, none of these things is necessary but is nice to have. 

ASOS Beauty Advent Calendar 2018


The ASOS face and body advent calendar are filled with quality products for a good value of money priced at £55. The box showcases some top premium brands such as MAC, Caudalie, Clinique and Bobbi Brown to name a few. There is a great ratio of cosmetic to skincare products.

As soon as this box was posted on their website it is immediately sold out so make sure you get yours asap! I bought mine for £39 using my £5 A-List voucher and my student discount which got me £11 off.

I was really disappointed with this years box in terms of design. It is quite basic compared to last years pink and grey marble design in a book shaped box. My personal reasoning behind this design is to have an uncomplicated drawer style recyclable box (because taking care of the environment is super cool).

There are 24 stylish skincare and beauty products packed into this years box which the designed based on their packages the iconic black and white style. There was also nothing for the 25th day?! Last year ASOS decided to award people with 20% off their products.

Inside the calendar, you will find...

1. 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask (£85 for a set of 5)
2. ASOS Design Makeup Matte Lipstick (£7)
3. BOD Petite Mermaid Shimmer Sorbet (£4.95)
4. Clinique Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto Replenishing Hydrator (£24)
5. First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay (£18)
6. Iconic London. Iconic London Illuminator (£30)
7. MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream (£12)
8. Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay - Porefining Face Mask (£39.50)
9. Alpha - H Clear Skin Daily Face and Body Wash (£35)
10. Benefit Cosmetics - Hoola Lite (£12.50)
11. Carmex Original Pot (£3)
12. Coco and Eve Liked Virginiser Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque (£47)
13. Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturiser (£36)
14. J.One Jelly Pack (£20)
15. INC. relible - You Glow Girl - Cosmetic Blur (£10)
16. Skyn Iceland - Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels (£25 for a set of 8)
17. Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion (£9)
18. Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (£25)

22. Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Small Contouring Brush 512 (£16)
23. Rodial Dragon's Blood Sculpting Gel (£85)

As you can see the box is well worth the money.
