24 Happy Days Advent Calendar Green with Products

All of these products were great! Some of these items I currently use, while others are ones I have been meaning to try.  Below are some of my favourites from this gift set.

I am a huge fan of Shea butter products, so the Mini Shea Shower Cream, Mini Shea Body Butter and Shea Heart Soap were a real treat to use on my skin! It felt softer and smoother after using it.

I am always looking out for a great lip balm, and the Honeymania™ Lip Balm worked well to keep my lips moisturized so they would stop chapping and cracking in this cooler weather. It also smells nice, light and sweet, so it is always nice to have on hand.

I love trying new scents, and the Mini Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette is a great one to wear! Besides smelling like figs, it also has a fresh, juicy scent that reminds me of the summer. It helped to take a bit of the chill from the season away for me, I really like it!
