Can you believe it's almost Christmas? I've dragged this Christmas out as long as possible and then bang, it's right on my doorstep. So we're now on to week two's advent calendar round up. If you want to see week one, click here. Again, I haven't had much time to test all of these out so I wont be doing a full review.

1. No7 Beautiful Skin Radiance Exfoliator 
This exfoliator is for normal and dry skin. Unfortunately I have oily skin so I didn't fancy chancing this but it would be perfect for my boyfriend as he has drier skin. I'll have to see how he gets on with it if I manage to convince him to try it. We're both quite sceptical when it comes to new skin care products. The full size retails at £8.99.

2.No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Night Cream
I have been using this for just over a week and I love it! I'm getting worried that this will run out soon as it's a sample sized tube. I have acne prone skin so I did a little research first and found that this is not oil free but it is non comedogenic. I've been carrying out my daily skin care routine but on a night time I've been switching my normal moisturiser for this one. Surprisingly it has been a week and I haven't had one breakout. It sounds a little sad but I've been counting the days since my last spot. I'm not sure if my skin has actually been needing more moisture and has been creating more oil to handle this or what but so far so good. You can really feel this sinking in to your skin and it feels extremely moisturised in the morning. Plus it doesn't feel oily. I'm definitely going to buy the full size when I've ran out. The full size retails at £24.00. It seems a little expensive but I'm going to have to start saving as I love this.

3. No7 Blissful Bodywash
I never buy body wash just because at Christmas I tend to get inundated with bath products so I'm sorted for the rest of the year. I'm glad I've got this one to tide me over as it smells gorgeous. I love a perfumed body wash as they the scent tends to linger longer than soap and this is no different. This would go perfectly with the body lotion which I will mention in a little while. This retails at£7.50.

4.  No7 Beautiful Skin Eye Makeup Remover
Luckily, I have just ran out of my usual eye makeup remover so I was more than happy to find this little beauty. I tend to go for long lasting eye makeup so removing it can be tricky as I end up with a black smudge all over my face. I pour some of this on a cotton ball and hold it over each eye for a few seconds and then wipe it over my eyelids and it saves time when I'm cleansing. The full size costs £8.50.

5. No7 Stay Precise Felt Tip Eyeliner
I absolutely love this! The liner comes in a long sturdy pen format. I thought that this would make it difficult to maintain control of the brush but it actually was fine. The brush itself is a mixture of sturdy and flexible. It isn't too flexible that the liquid flicks everywhere and it isn't too sturdy that it wont move. This brush is perfect for creating a clean cat eye flick and I highly recommend it. This is definitely one of my favourites from this box. This retails at £8.00.

6. No7 High Shine Lip Crayon 
The lip crayon doesn't state which shade it is but after a quick look online I'm guessing it is delicate pink. I briefly tried this on and I didn't really like how it looked on me. It was a nice glossy pink but I usually struggle to find pinks that suit me. If you're a pink lover then this may be for you. This retails at £9.00.

7. No7 Completely Quenched Body Lotion
I'm the kind of person who commits to using a body lotion for two or three days then forgets about it. I also end up feeling guilty about it when I remember and the cycle repeats. The best thing about having a sample sized tube is that I probably will be able to finish one of these off pretty quickly with no guilty feelings attached. I have managed to use this over the past few days and I do really like the feel of it on my skin. This body lotion has the same scent as the body wash so I'll have to team these up for some seriously scented skin. The full size retails at £8.50
