Advent Calenders x

It is NOVEMBER! We only have 53 days till Christmas. For a few years now brands have been designing advent calenders. Instead of opening the doors and finding some cheap (but delicious) chocolate, you can now open a door to your favourite candle or beauty product. There are loads out there ready for this year. I was browsing for a few for early Christmas presents this year, here are my favourites.

Liberty London Bath and Body beauty advent calender. This is a bit pricier than your normal chocolate one, it costs £149. This would make a great present for someone who is really into beauty. You get amazing products in this:

  • Byredo hand cream
  • Ren Moroccan rose body wash
  • Escentric molecules eccentric
  • Hourglass mini film noir mascara
  • Dermalogica daily microfoliant
  • Aromatherapy assoiciates de stress muscle gel
  • C.O bigelow rose salve
  • Aurelia miracle cleanser and muslin cloth
  • Margaret dabs nail and cuticle serum
  • Deborah lippmann nail polish
  • Davines oi oil
  • Kai body lotion
  • Decleor aroma cleanse essential toning lotion
  • Trish McEvovy instant eye lift deluxe
  • Espa pro cleaner
  • Kiehl’s amino acid shampoo
  • Nars mini audacious mascara
  • Malin + Goetz vitamin e face moisturiser
  • Omorovicza refining skin polish
  • Dr Sebagh serum repair
  • Surratt lipslique
  • Liberty print lavender soap
  • Une nuit a bali dry shampoo
  • Eve lom cleaner with cloth
  • Diptyque candle

They all come in their individual drawers which you pull open. I have to admit I haven’t heard of some of these brands. Liberty have said they are all best sellers from their beauty hall. If you or someone is in to beauty this is a great way to try out lots of different brands. To buy all the individual products inside it would cost over £400 so at £149 that’s an amazing saving.

This is by far a more of a grown up advent calender. Its all about Gin. It’s by a company called Drinks by the dram. You get 24 30ml bottles. This costs £125. If you know a gin lover this is perfect!

This is one I am already dreaming about. Lush 12 days of Christmas. I need to get this right now. Is it wrong to buy myself an advent calender? Maybe I could buy one to count down the days before I can open my chocolate one. You get 12 of their best selling items and costs £49.95. This is sold out on their website but you can get it from amazon too. I will be running into a lush store on my next day off to find one of these.
