M&S Beauty Advent Calendar 2022


One of the best value beauty advent calendars on the market that I always get really excited about is the M&S Collection Advent Calendar.

This year’s stunning offering contains a staggering £300 worth of hand picked goodies curated by M&S’s in-house beauty team.



Featuring 25 cult products, including 7 full sized items across bath and body, skincare, fragrance and makeup, there is so much to discover, re-discover and fall in love with.

Presented as an exquisite, reusable jewellery box it features soft pink, deep pink and gold details to get you in the festive spirit!



Lift the lid to reveal a mirror which reflects back the top layer of perfectly fitting boxes which each hold hidden inside, your daily beauty treat and gently pull out the bottom draw to reveal another layer of goodies waiting to be unboxed!

But what exactly will you find inside this beautiful treasure trove?

Well dear reader, please read on!



Inside you’ll find the following;

 Fragrance Society Poppy, Peony & Pearl Barley Hand Cream (30ml)

Discover Warm Neroli Eau De Toilette (30ml)

Autograph Colour Balm Lip Shine – Peach (5g)


 Apothecary Meditate Body Wash (60ml)

As mentioned before, the calendar is worth £300 and indeed if you wanted to buy it outright, that’s what it would cost you.

However, you can nab this little gem for just £40 when you spend £30 on clothing, home or beauty in M&S.

I mean, to me it’s a no brainer. 



Even by spending £70 you’ll still be making a MASSIVE saving, plus it gives you a good excuse to stock up on some Christmas essentials such as fluffy socks, new PJ’s and maybe some festive home fragrance treats such as candles, diffusers or room sprays.

Marks & Spencer’s Beauty Advent Calendar 2022 is available now but mark my words, it won’t be around for long and will sell out online exceptionally quickly so grab yours while you can!


SEPHORA Launches in the UK!


Beauty lovers rejoice!

SEPHORA has officially burst onto the scene in the UK!

The iconic site landed on our shores on October 17th, bringing with it its own unique celebration of the unlimited power of beauty for all.



The launch has seen Feelunique transform seamlessly into, satisfying all of your beauty desires and making all beauty trends both possible and accessible.

Those days of desperately googling products and brands you so want to try only to find out they’re only available from SEPHORA USA or France, which didn’t ship to the UK (or incurred mahoosive shipping charges) are finally over and I’m absolutely over the moon!

So many brands that I’ve longed to get my hands on are now available and as a beauty lover I’m thoroughly thrilled! is absolutely JAM PACKED full of some incredible brands! 



From iconic, established brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, DIOR, CHANEL, Darphin and Clarins to newly launched, boutique brands previously unavailable in the UK such as GXVE by Gwen Stefani, Makeup by Mario, Tarte Cosmetics and ONE/SIZE by Patrick Starr there is something for everyone on SEPHORA.

Whatever your budget, whatever your requirement, whatever your need or want, you will find it here.

Arriving at the most perfect time (I’m talking Christmas) there are literally THOUSANDS of gifts and products and HUNDREDS of brands available to choose from.

One such brand is the absolutely gorgeous SEPHORA collection!



The SEPHORA Collection is an expansive range of products, from makeup to skincare, hair to perfume, bath to food supplements with the mission of democratizing high-performance beauty and is committed to a responsible approach: ‘easy to use, affordable and accessible to all.’

There is so much to discover its hard to know where to begin, so I’ve curated a small collection of products that I think represent the diversity and inclusion of SEPHORA, plus would make some awesome Christmas gifts!

Now, how could I not begin with the SEPHORA Collection? I’ve selected two gorgeous gifts which I hope you’ll love as much as I do.



First up is the SEPHORA Collection Set Of 3 Mini Makeup Brushes + Travel Pouch - Wishing You 3 pieces (£15.99).

This cuter than cute limited edition trio of mini, vegan face and eye makeup brushes comes in an adorable silky soft, pastel blue pouch and just looks insane!

Let’s be honest, mini’s will never not be cute, and these three brushes (two for the face and one for the eyes) are perfect for on-the-go touch up’s, making it easy quick and easy to apply for your makeup for any occasion.



 Looking wonderfully luxe with their elegant gold hue and super soft, synthetic fibres, they are made without animal derived ingredients and allow for expert, precise application.

Next is another super sweet gift set from the SEPHORA Collection, the Set Of 2 Outrageous Intense Lip Plumpers - WISHING YOU (£14.99).

If you know me you’ll know I got a lotta love for lip plumpers are these are just brilliant.

Harnessing the power of chili pepper and combining it with the hydrating, plumping effects of hyaluronic acid, these silky liplovers offer intense shine and instantly help to plump your lips for a fuller, longer lasting pout.



If like me you love the tingle that you often get with lip plumpers then you’re gonna love these.

Featuring two timeless, wearable shades and housed in a gorgeous multi-faceted bottles with bold red lids, they create a spicy, tingly sensation when applied and flood your lips with moisture, creating volume and soft curves that last all day.

Now, two well known brands that are available on SEPHORA are Benefit and Estee Lauder, oldie’s but goodies and so sticking with the mini theme, I picked out these two lovelies.

 Benefit Roller Express Holiday Set - Eyeliner & mascara (£13.50).

Roller Lash has been my go-to mascara ever since it launched. 



Offering super black pigment, sensational lift, length and curve, it is my favourite mascara.

Perfect as a secret santa gift, this deluxe set contains a mini Roller Lash Mascara and matte finish Roller Liner Eyeliner, nestled neatly inside a re-usable keepsake tin complete with special holiday stickers for a little extra touch.

Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Serum & Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex Duo (£18) would also make a brilliant little gift this Christmas.

Featuring Estee Lauder’s luxurious, potent night time eye cream and #1 serum to fight back against the multiple signs of ageing, this targeted duo help to turn back the clock.

The fast-absorbing serum reduces the appearance of signs of ageing caused by the environmental assaults of modern life resulting in skin looks smoother and less lined, younger, more radiant and even toned.



The rich, luxurious eyes cream helps to replenish the delicate skin around your eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and fine lines for a younger looking appearance.

They’re not iconic best-sellers for nothing!

Morphe is a brand that I wasn’t familiar with, but after I saw this gorgeous set I knew I couldn’t resist- plus who doesn’t enjoy discovering new favourites!



The Morphe X Pony Constellation Sky Lip Gelee Trio (£12- was £20), see’s the brand pairing up with South Korean beauty powerhouse and social media sensation PONY to launch this lip gelee trio as part of the Constellation Sky collection.

 Featuring three interstellar, sheer yet shimmery tinted balms in shades lavender, celestial blue and golden apricot, they offer a wonderfully nourishing, soft feel thanks to their hydrating formulas which include avocado oil and enhance your own natural lip colour with a soft pearlescent tint.



I love the soft curves of the bullets and their addictive, pastel hues!

Finally we land on the Ariana Grande 3 x Miniature Eau De Parfum Gift Set (£22.99).

(I told you I had a thing for mini’s, do you believe me now?!)

 This gorgeous pale pink Christmas Cracker almost doesn’t even need to be wrapped it looks that good!

Nestled inside you’ll find three mini versions of Ariana’s super popular fragrances;



Sweet Like Candy: Top notes of sweet blackberry, juicy pear and bergamot swirl into a blissfully creamy heart of whipped cream, soft marshmallow, black currant, frangipani, honeysuckle and jasmine before base notes of sweet, warm vanilla and luxurious cashmere wood round off the fragrant experience.

R.E.M.: Opens with notes of zefir, creamy caramel, salt, fig and quince before mid notes of fragrant lavender and pear blossom combine with a base of tonka bean, musk and sandalwood to create a multi-dimensional, seductive scent.

Ari: Opening with a fruity explosion of raspberry, pear and grapefruit it the gives way to mid notes of creamy vanilla orchid, lily of the valley and timeless rose before transforming into a base of  marshmallow, musk and woody notes.



Brilliantly priced, full of variety and inspiration, SEPHORA has well and truly landed.
