Day 9 was protect and perfect day cream - I noticed it had a security tag underneath. It's big so wouldn't have thought it could have slipped down? Was it still in the cellophane wrapper when you bought it?
Yes there was a little metalic strip under Day 9 (but no gift)
I got mine delivered to store, the plastic shiield was over it and all the 'doors' intact. Cannot honestly remember if there was a cellophane cover. I'm really tempted now to open the whole thing up (thus losing the whole idea of an Advent Calender )
