Advent Blog: A Bird, A Porefessional, and A Mouse

Christmas Quote

"Some say that ever 'gainst the season comes,
Wherein our Savior's birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long;
And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad;
The nights are wholesome; then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, or witch hath power to charm,
So hallow'd and so gracious is that time." ~William Shakespeare (Hamlet - Act 1, Scene 1)

Benefit Countdown to Love Advent Calendar

Day 10: The Porefessional Face Primer

I have tried this before and I love it! This is my all time favorite face primer. I was hoping it would be in the calendar.

Lush's Fairy Tail Sugar Scrub

This is something I bought separately. This is what the website has to say about it: "This adorable mouse sugar scrub is made with Fair Trade Sugar, coconut milk powder and strawberry powders to make skin feel smooth and smell sweet as strawberries and cream. Product inventor Noriko created it after finding traditional Sugar Mice candies at an old fashioned sweet shop in England. She even gave this little mouse a string for a tail and little white chocolates for ears. We invented him a few years ago and have brought him back as a skin-softening treat for a limited time online. How to use: Get your body nice and wet in the bath or shower. Scrub with the whole thing or break off a piece. Smooth your scrub all over, rubbing harder on the rough parts leaving you with bright, smooth and glowing skin. Rinse off. Oh, and don't forget to admire your freshly buffed bod." lol! It doesn't really look like a mouse to me. I really need this to scrub my feet.

Review: I thought this mouse would last longer. It crumbled away really fast. It just lasted long enough to get my legs. I thought there would be some left over. It smelled like strawberries. I wouldn't get this again. I like having scrubs that last longer. It was also pretty abrasive. I like scrubs that aren't as harsh.


  1. My mom and I often scrub with sugar. Just sugar, no fancy candy xD And is that actual chocolate? O_O

  2. Yes! xD They also made the snowman with chocolate chips! But I didn't eat it it. I made a scrub once and you use sugar. It's good for the skin. It's cheaper that way.

    1. I think they are very confused candy confectioners, not bath product makers.

  3. I agree, the Porefessional is a nice primer :D
