JOIK Advent Calendar: The first 7 days

I was never going to do a daily post on the contents of the fabulous JOIK Advent Calendar* and had always planned a weekly one. Above is what came out of the first seven days! WOW! These are just my initial thoughts - I'll review them in fuller detail once I've had the chance to test them out properly.

Day 1:

Cleansing Facial Foam with Cucumber & Watercress Extracts & Aloe Juice 50ml - this is a gentle foaming cleanser with a refreshing scent (which I like to use in my morning shower). It is suitable for use all over the face and neck including the eye area.  This one's a hit with me!

Day 2:

Moisturizing DayCream with Rosehip, Wheatgerm & Carrot Oil 30ml - which lightly hydrates the skin. It's suitable for all skin types and is perfect to use under make up. A full review will follow when I get the chance to try it.

Day 3:

Raspberry Bon Bon Shower Oil 50ml - which smells divine! I'm not a huge fan of shower oils so will probably pass this one on.

Day 4:

Sweet Orange & Mint Body Scrub 75ml - this smells uplifting and refreshing at the same time! It also has the right amount of "scrubbiness" which I like. Looking forward to trying it.

Day 5:

Regenerating NightCream with Sea Buckthorn, Jojoba Oil & Calendula Extract 30ml - I've tried this once so far and my skin loved it. Expect a full review soon.

Day 6:

Green Tea & Cucumber Body Lotion 50ml - this light and easily absorbed lotion which smells really refreshing (I think this would be the one to pop in your summer holiday bag).

Day 7:

Rose & Red Clay Handmade Soap mini - which is one of my favourite items. I adore bars of soap and this one's gorgeous.

What are your thoughts on the contents of the JOIK Advent Calendar* so far?  Which ones would you specifically like me to review?

*I paid for £57 of the Advent Calendar and my November points from the Love Lula Accredited Blogger Program paid for the remainder.
