I really enjoyed the JOIK Advent Calendar* which I chose in November as my #LLABP pick (partly paid by me).
I've got 17 top picks which out of 24 is pretty good going! (and right now it's still on sale if you fancy it (£85.60). The products I wasn't so keen on were - Raspberry Bon Bon Shower Oil 50ml, Luxurious Citrus Bath Milk (because it had opened in transit and covered most things in a light powder), Micellar Water 50ml, Juicy Apple Shower Foam 50ml, Deep Moisturising All Over Balm 15ml, Oriental Night Soap 40gr and the Vanille scented sachet 30gr I thought was only ok as I didn't find the scent very long-lasting.
Onto the products I loved:
Rejuvenating Eye Contour Cream 8ml which I've been enjoying using. It helps to reduce wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. The cream is stuffed full of ingredients which help smooth out wrinkles, add moisture, help with collagen and elastin production, nourish and plump. I'd buy full size.
I also love Exfoliating Facial Scrub 15ml which has a rich creamy texture and citrus scent. Bamboo stem and olive granules gently exfoliate along with AHA fruit acids of bilberry, cane sugar, maple sugar, orange and lemon. Coconut oil, shea butter and sunflower oil moisturise and nourish.
Cleansing Facial Foam 50ml is really lovely to use and refreshing in my morning shower. I love the light as air foam which I find gives a really good clean and refreshes the skin. It also has fruity scent which is uplifting.
I love using the Moisturizing Day Cream 30ml in conjunction with both the Regenerating Night Cream 30ml and the Silky Facial Serum 10ml. I've found the trio work very well together. I'll do a full review shortly on the trio.
I thought the Spiced Cranberry Soy Wax Candle 145g was a great addition to the calendar. I love it's gentle spicy Christmas aroma with notes of cranberry, cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg and clove.
Citrus & Bergamot Body Butter 50ml absorbs instantly and leaves the skin with a beautiful citrus aroma and deeply nourished. While Raspberry Bon Bon Body Butter 50ml smells good enough to eat! It has a sweet and slightly fruity raspberry scent.
Sweet Orange & Mint Body Oil 50ml also absorbs instantly and leaves the skin smelling fresh, fruity with the skin hydrated and nourished. A special blend of nurturing oils are used and I like the spray bottle top too! I like to use the body oil in conjunction with the matching Sweet Orange & Mint Body Scrub 75ml which has the same delicious scent with for me personally, the perfect amount of scrubbiness.
Rose & Red Clay Soap 40g smells just glorious. I'm a huge fan of bars of soap (hopefully full sizes will land at Love Lula soon!) Apple & Elderflower Foaming Handwash 50ml is again a favourite. I love the foamy texture and the uplifting fruity scent.
Illuminating Passionfruit & Mango Body Milk 50ml and Green Tea & Cucumber Body Lotion 50ml which I think would be perfect for packing for your summer holidays.
The final item I loved from the Advent Calendar was the fantastic Velvety Red Silky Lip Balm which adds a pop of nourishing colour to the lips.
