Which Advent Beauty Calendar should I buy?
I’ve been thinking about writing this post since July…yes, Christmas for me started in July! Long gone are the days of chocolate advent calendars! If you really want to treat yourself or that special someone, then going down the more luxury, beauty or lifestyle calendar is the way forward. There is nothing more indulgent than the new forms of advent calendars that are now on the market. Ranging from beauty, food, drink, lifestyle items, etc, the possibilities of the different types of advent calendars are endless and one that I will save for another post. But if you have got this far in the purchasing thought process, then the next question will be, which one to buy? And rightly so as it seems nearly EVERY beauty brand out there has released some sort of Advent beauty Calendar. First, decide on your budget; next, do you want twelve days or are you going for the full twenty five days? For me it has to be the full twenty five days and this year, the most standout, beautifully packaged advent calendar with a mid range affordable price tag has to be the Lookfantastic Advent Calendar! Last year, this calendar was fully sold out within days of its launch. This year, the Lookfantastic team have stocked up and if you’re still in the market for an advent calendar, then keep reading for a breakdown of product categories and a few spoilers, not all!
Packaged in a HUGE vanity case, each of the items come wrapped in quirky tissue paper and packaged in in multicoloured boxes that are stored in drawers, with the top of the case opening up to house a mirror and a further storage area. Perfect for housing all your gifts or for general beauty storage! I know I won’t be throwing my case away!
In terms of what you actually get for your money: 9 full sized products, 16 deluxe samples of which 7 are makeup, 3 are hair care related products, 13 are skincare and finally, two beauty/skincare tools. Not to totally spoil the fun, you can expect brands such as Illamasqua, Elemis, Omorovicza, Oskia, Molton Brown, Ciate etc.
Priced at £79 with contents worth over £300! This is definitely the gift that keeps on giving! You can order your calendar HERE while stocks last!
