Christmas | Beauty Advent Calendar 2013

Advent Calendars have been a purchase made by every parent for their children for years. Until recently the beauty calendar was very much non-existent, then as the beauty industry grew so have beauty calendars, you can get them most places with the majority of beauty stores jumping on the beauty advent calendar bandwagon. Come Christmas and us beauty obsessed individuals are not wondering what chocolate advent calendar to have, but what beauty calendar we want to get our hands on and what beauty treats lie in store behind each window has we count down the days to Christmas in style.

This year a vast amount of calendars us beauty lovers will love have been made available from much loved high street brands to expensive department store luxury brands and even candles. 

Yet to be released and one I personally didn't know was coming, is The Body Shop advent calendar. I imagine this will be filled with decent travel sized products. There will be lots of variety with everything from hand cream to all of our favourite body lotions, lip butters, and soaps included. This will be out this Wednesday costing £55.00 but will have a value of £80. 

There's a beauty calendar for everyone. Nail polish lover then the Ciate calendar is definitely for you. Candle obsessed the Yankee one is calling your name. I personally am in love with the you beauty discovery calendar, with a value of £240 and costing just £44.95 it's a real bargain and there's so much variety, with skincare and make up to indulge in. I also think the Boot's one is fabulous for them on a budget with a great selection behind each door. 

Have you got your hands on a calendar? Which what have you got? or is there one you want or hope to get. Comment below, I'd love to know. I unfortunately haven't this year, maybe next.

Also, I hope you all have a great bonfire night tomorrow if your going to any parties/displays.

  1. I still haven't purchased one, I really want to but I'm not keen on the prices. I received free Lancome travel kit when I purchased their foundation and a lipstick a while ago, so I don't think I'll be purchasing the Selfridges one lol, xoxo.

    1. Me neither. I really want one, but with it being so close to Christmas I can't justify this indulgent treat when I've got so much to buy. I'd settle for any but the one I'm more pulled towards is the you beauty discovery, the variety is perfect and it's high end with some high street ones too. I think the Boot's one is quite good too. Selfridges is quite a costly one but if you've got some purchases recently from Lancome then maybe there isn't any point xx
