A full sized Skog* of course, and a set of mini Sno, Jul (gingerbread, cloves) and Trae (piney) from Skandinivisk, Diptyque's Feu de Bois, Neom's Christmas Wish (which sort of smells like Lebkuchen) and White Company's Winter. :lol: I'm going to be in Space NK on Tuesday too and will be sniffing the Diptyque Christmas ones and the Jo Loves ones.

* bathroom soap will also be switched to Skog the minute we hit Dec 1. :disco:
White Company's Roast Chestnut and Fireside are incredible, too. But Highland Escape is my favourite.

Taking notes. :disco: I lit Skandinivisk's Trae last night. It's a bit....Radox. :)) Good job I like Radox.

M&S was a travel sized Eyeko Lash Alert mascara with ingredients like caffeine :flirt: , which I'm really pleased with.
I was chuffed with this too, mascara always dries out too fast for my liking, so I prefer mini ones. Interested to see whether the caffeine makes a difference too :weewee:

I got some Sisley stuff today. I didn’t have time to fully inspect this morning.

That looks exciting, Pip!

I’m thrilled with mine today. It’s a facial oil I’ve been wanting to try for a while.

I’ve fancied trying that Edith, so please do report back.

Flipping heck, I just looked up the price of the Sisley things! :emme:

Yep, the eye cream is £150 for 15ml. Right, I will have to use that on a night I need to wake up like Sleeping Beauty the next day.

Wow! What a treat!

I’m always worried when I try the really expensive stuff in case I love it and it makes me look amazing. :))

Mine for today was a mini Natasha Denona palette. I’ll need to look at it in daylight :granny:.

That makes a change from Nars Orgasm, Ella :))

A fragrance for me and olive today. It’s more floral than I would normally like but it is settling down quite nicely. I will have to give it a few tries to see if I get on with it.

Kleio, if it was Rimmel Heather Shimmer I'll have it ;)
I’m still partial to a Heather Shimmer :lol: I take it back though! In the tube it looked like a dark brown, the sort to be worn with heavy lipliner aka Jodie and Jordan. In reality thought it’s a lovely light natural shade that feels really creamy on.

Everyone else’s look so good! The Sisley stuffs especially.

Today I got an eyebrow pencil and Betty a lipgloss.

It makes a lovely change, Edith!

Mine for today was a smaller version of this Dr Barbara Sturm eye cream. It has never been on my radar, but I’m certainly happy to try it.
