“ Brand: You Beauty / Type: Other Beauty Accessories „
When my sister showed me this advent calendar that her boyfriend had bought for her I couldn;t resist asking my mam for one and luckily for me she was feeling generous enough to buy me one! They cost £59.95 before Christmas from latestinbeauty.com, but they're selling them off at half price now Christmas has been and gone.
It's presented really well and looks so pretty so it really would make a lovely gift. It coes in a large white box which has 2 flaps on the front that open out to reveal all the numbered doors behind. The flaps are tied at the front with a lovely pink ribbon which looks really girly and pretty. Each door is a different size as behind each one is a different beauty product. It really is a great idea for any girl who loves her beauty products.
Obviously as it is an advent calendar there are 24 doors, each with a different gift behind, so that's 24 different products you get to try out. The items include makeup, skincare, hair products, bath products and beauty accessories, and a candle.
I won't list every item in the calendar as I think a long list of items would just be unnecessary padding, but to give an idea of what is included, makeup items included a mini size of Benefit's They're Real Mascara, a Miranesse lip gloss, Bellapiere eyeshadow and Mavala nail polish, skincare included a Balm Balm lip balm, a mini L'Occitane hand cream and mini Philosophy cleanser, and haircare included minis of Nicky Clarke Instant Calmer, Richard ward Volumiser Root Booster and Jo Hansford Intensive Masque.
There were a total of 7 full-sized items, the rest were all miniatures or sample sizes, and some of them were really tiny whereas some were more generous. I think overall though there was a very good mixture of items and looking at the high end brands included I would say it's definitely worth the money overall.
I really loved opening this calendar every day to a new surprise and it's allowed me to try products that I normally wouldn't have been able to because they're too expensive to buy the full size when you don't even know if you're going to like it. I would recommend this calendar and if you want to try out lots of great products I would say go and order one now while it's half price!
