Xmas of Blog 2021 Sachiko Advent Calendar days 5 & 6

Hello again, I’m quite behind in my blogging but you know how is life!

Today I’m back again with 2 days of the Sachiko Advent Calendar my husband has handmade for me.

Day 5 was a Banila Co Clean it Zero Duo trial kit with a purifying cleansing balm and an original cleansing balm. I only opened the original one and it removed my makeup fabulously. I’m very pleased with this product

I love Coca Cola so le husband picked that cloth.

Day 6 was Dear klairs Fundamental Water Gel Cream which is a moisturizing cream with a gel type texture. It contains Jeju Green tea water and panthenol. I enjoyed using this cream as the last step of my night routine and it played well with my other skincare products so I call that a success.

Xmas of Blog Advent Calendar days 3 & 4

Hello again, to my Xmas of Blog 2021. Yesterday was a long day and I couldn’t show you my advent calendar gifts so today we have a double treat!

Day 3 was a shower gel and serum.

I had purchased the serum myself and it’s the Aurelia London revitalise & glow serum which is a lightweight serum with a mild citrusy and floral scent. It contains omega rich baobab to revitalise the skin’s appearance, Kingella africana to firm and antioxidantes rich natural Vitamin E oil to help reduce signs of oxidative stress. It also contains jasmine flower & frangipani extracts.

The shower gel was courtesy of my sister in law from Germany and it has a wonderful winter wonderland spicy fragrance that I can’t wait to try!

Day 4 is a Nail Polish

I was very pleasantly surprised by day 4 because it was a gift from my husband, he selected the perfect shade of nail polish from O.P.I. in the shade Ready, Fête, Go.

I’m so happy with the goodies of the past few days and can’t wait to try them all.

Xmas of Blog Advent Calendar day 2

Today I want to tell you a little more about my advent calendar as I think it’s quite special.

My husband has surprised me with a sachiko (Japanese stitching or embroidery) advent calendar pouches.

I purchased some items back in September so I barely remember what I bought and today I got the Cosrx cica clear cleansing oil which looks lush.

I hope you enjoyed today’s product and if you want a review of it in the future let me know in the comments ☺️

Rhassoul Clay Wash Recipe

Disclaimer: Some links may be affiliate and the blog makes a small commission should your purchase from them.

Now for the good stuff, as I promised yesterday I would try to post some more about the products I love from Anita Grant so I decided to share my Rhassoul clay mask because it’s a double function clay it’s moisturizing but also cleansing so you’re getting the best of both worlds.

50 grams of Rhassoul clay

30 ml of ylang ylang floral water

60 ml of warm peppermint tea

5 ml of Japanese camellia kissi oil

Mix together with a wooden spoon, then use a milk foamer to get an even, smooth, creamy consistency. You can mix it with the spoon only and it will be fine, I just like using the milk foamer.

I used these ingredients because they may have antiinflammatory properties and sebum regulation properties so I figured they would be good for an itchy scalp or just to gently clarify.

All products used are from Anita Grant except the tea.

Apply to dry hair and massage your scalp to remove product build up. Leave it on for at least 5 minutes and up to an hour. You can follow up with a shampoo like I do or your regular conditioner. For this wash day I used the Anita Grant Aloe Vera conditioning shampoo.

I hope you have enjoyed this little recipe where I showcase some of the products I mentioned yesterday for the holiday sales.
