Day Seven: Grow Gorgeous Intense Thickening Hair & Scalp Mask 

A new week means another seven doors to open! So let's start on a good one...

This organic hair mask is rich in caffeine, biotin and niacinamide to tackle issues such as thin, flat and weakened strands.  These ingredients and their miracle-working properties run through your roots, giving your locks a healthier look. So your hair can gain back its shine! In addition, this popular hair care product also contains Oat Lipids Complex and shea butter extract. As a result, your scalp is protected too, because this powerhouse couple ensure the feeling of dryness and flaking is long gone, as well as the production of excess sebum! 

How To Use This Hair Thickening Mask  

Use this restorative mask after washing your hair! Spread evenly across your hair and massage the area for deeper absorption into your scalp. Leave the product to do its magic for up to 10 minutes and finally, rinse it off thoroughly.

Day Eight: W7 Cosmetics Super Brows Super Definition Eyebrow Pencil 

Perfect brows are the aim for all this December. So this W7 Super Brows Pencil is here to change up the game! This dual-ended brow pencil allows you to define your eyebrow to your desired shape, all thanks to its brush. While, on the other end, a high-pigmented pencil is on hand to help you fill in any sparse areas. As a result, your arch will be enhanced and your eye makeup will have a fuller effect!

How To Do Your Brows With An Eyebrow Pencil

  1. Starting with the comb end, brush your brows up and out into your desired shape.
  2. Next, with delicate strokes, fill in any sparse areas in your brow (try to follow your eyebrow's arch shape to keep your brows looking natural). Top tip, regular short strokes will mimic natural hair and give you the gorgeous look you're after.
  3. To finish, brush through your brows gently again to blend (and remove) any excess product.

Day Ten: James Read Gradual Tan Sleep Mask

Most importantly (and likely the main reason you'll love it!), this sleep mask builds up a gradual tan on your skin. The colour will last over the course of a few days and you can build a light or medium tone, all depending on your desired final look!However, inspired by Japanese Pack Technology that boasts anti-ageing benefits, this foaming face mask is also a saviour for your skin. With a blend of encapsulated retinol and hyaluronic acid, this formula works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, all whilst you sleep. As a result, your face will start looking more youthful and radiant than ever before. Similarly, its innovative Prodizia properties target dark circles and puffiness. So, your complexion is revived and less tired-looking... Perfect for the party season!

How To Use This Tanning Sleep Mask 

  1. Apply a small amount of this product onto a clean and dry face, using your fingertips.  
  2. Focus on spreading it into the hairline and decolletage too. 
  3. Wash hands after use - because no one wants overly tanned palms!
  4. Avoid contact with water for six to eight hours (don't wash your face again before bed!) and rinse off during your skincare routine the next morning!

Day Eleven: PIXI Glow Tonic

The gentle face exfoliator brightens and refines your complexion through its blend of 5% glycolic acid, ginseng and aloe vera extract. These properties focus on eliminating excess oil and impurities from your skin. Therefore, your pores will be looking refined and your texture will feel a lot smoother and hydrated.  

How To Use This PIXI Exfoliating Toner

  • It is suggested that this product is used during both the morning and evening.
  • After you have completed your cleansing routine, simply apply the tonic to a cotton pad and sweep across your face, neck and decolletage. (Avoid your eye area to not cause irritations).
  • No need to rinse off, just continue with your skincare routine (we recommend moisturiser, eye cream and, if its the morning, SPF!).

Day Twelve: Vitamasques Plump and Repair Lip Mask 

A natural lip mask is rich in mulberry extract and wild cherries which both provide a source of antioxidants and an intense repairing action. Consequently, your lip texture will become softer after only 15 minutes of use!

Why Else Is This Lip Mask So Great?
