Theres just 88 days left until Christmas and I cant tell you how excited I am, every things becoming that little bit festive now with websites filled with Christmas gifts and Tesco's have got loads of their Christmas chocolates out so I thought I could just about get away with doing a slightly festive post today! I'm talking about advent calenders, I knew I wanted to do a post about advent calenders a while ago so I trawled the inter-webs and actually came across LOADS this year but I've narrowed it down to just five, four beauty calenders and one candle calender, I hope you enjoy!
My first pick of beauty advent calenders is by the gorgeous Tanya Burr who's bringing us a 12 days of Christmas style advent calender priced at £25.00, which I think is pretty reasonable as far as these beauty advent calenders go. The Deck The Halls Calender features twelve Tanya Burr treats, many in special edition shades (cover you eyes now if you don't want to know whats inside the calender) theres two nail polishes in under the sea and carnival night, two pairs of lashes in girl next door and party girl plus adhesive, two shimmer pots in twinkling moon and twinkling gold, three mini lip glosses in macaroon, candy frost and bewitching and finally two nail files and a mirror. I honestly think this sounds absolutely lovely and if you like Tanya's beauty range already then your sure not to be disappointed by whats inside. Available on the Superdrug website soon.
Next is Yankee Candles offering, for the last 2 years my boyfriend has actually surprised me with the Yankee Candle Advent Calenders so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I've been good enough to receive one this year ha ha. This time around Yankee Candle have gone with a collectible Advent House instead of their usual octagon shaped calender which I really like, it's always nice to have a change and I think this design looks really festive. Each little window reveals one tea light candle per day and features seven seasonal scents, including an extra treat on Christmas Eve. The scents included are Bundle Up, Candy Cane Lane, Icicles, Spiced Orange, Snowflake Cookie, Winter Glow and Christmas Eve. Available now.
Benefit always do amazing advent calenders and gifts every year and this 70's vibe 12 days of Christmas calender really doesn't disappoint. Behind all 12 windows is one of Benefit's best selling products in miniature including a mini Rockateur blush, mini they're Real Mascara plus so much more, all of which are perfect little samplers if you haven't tried them before or if you have they are a great size for popping into your handbag for when your on the go. Available from 15th October in Debenhams.
This year The Body Shop are spoiling us beauty advent calender lovers with two advent calenders to choose from, ohhhhhh. Theres going to be a green calender which is the standard version priced at £60.00 which includes your miniature showers gels, body lotions soaps plus much more and a red deluxe version (pictured above) which will be £80.00 which includes bigger products - some full size and theres makeup products inside too. Both are very pricey but I think if your wanting to splurge on a calender this year then The Body Shop is the way to go because their products are just amazing! Both available on 28th September.
As you may know already I'm a HUGE Makeup Revolution fan so when I saw they where launching an advent calender this year I was soooo excited. The calender includes 25 FULL SIZE Makeup Revolution essentials including a special gift on Christmas Day, which I think is so nice and makes this calender that extra bit special as most advent calenders are usually finished on Christmas Eve. This Makeup Revolution calender is available now on the Superdrug website along with a Makeup Revolution Advent Beauty Chest which will set you back £100.00.
Let me know what you think of these advent calenders beaut's... Will you be buying one this year?? I'd love to know.
