Benefit Christmas | Advent Calendar: Days 5,6,7 & 8

Sorry if this is a bit late, but if you follow me on twitter you may have noticed i got a bit disheartened/angry with regards to my advent calendar. So I figured I'd wait a few days before posting this so I don't come across quite so angry! :P

Day Five (December 5th): I absolutely love Benefit's 'It's Potent' eye cream, it absolutely works wonders for me! I still have a full jar of this bad boy left, but a extra sample size won't do any harm! My only problem with this is the fact that it is quite tiny, so much so that I can't really fit my finger in to get any product out. Nothing a cotton bud won't fix!

Day Six (December 6th): I was pretty happy to get my hands on the Porefessional again. Since my last sample size lasted a while I'm perfectly happy with the size of this. It's perfect for me to just use day to day instead of constantly covering my face with foundation.

Day Seven (December 7th): A silvery hair tie. I'm not too fussed about this one - a bit disappointing when opening yes, but at least it is beauty related (ish), compared to paper clips and the next item.

Day Eight (December 8th): No word of a lie, it says 'Beauty Sticky Notes' inside the door for the 8th. Beauty sticky notes?!?! I don't think so - they were clearly scraping the bottom of the barrel with this idea. I don't care what they say - this isn't beauty related at all. Just like the paper clips. I thought I'd purchased a beauty advent calendar - I might as well have gone to staples with all the stationary rubbish that seems to have been a desperate attempt to fill the calendar. Such a disappointment. I understand that it might have been difficult to completely fill it with samples of all their different items - but you could have at least put something beauty related in it! Not post it notes, and then trying to fob them off as a 'beauty' item!

So far I've had mixed reactions - some of the items have been right on spot, but others have been complete failures. I'm keeping an open mind that the days will get better mind!

What about you? What are your thoughts on Benefit's Advent Calendar?

I seriously don't understand the stationary... I know they will regret adding them in because i've seen so many complain already xx
