This year, in a moment of madness I bought a £70.70 Look Fantastic advent calendar full of beauty bits. £70. And 70p.
Tbf I got a Glossybox for about 3 years and this calendar only cost as much as about 5 and a half of those. This is SO much better.
As you can possibly see from my face, I’m beyond excited about opening this calendar – it also gives you as idea of how freaking large it is! I’ve had to put it in my study as there is nowhere else it’ll fit…
It is a calendar that ends on the 25th December, which is so much nicer than ones that end on the 24th – I need something to open as soon as I wake up on Christmas morning 😂 This also means it works out as £2.80 per item. You would get a few more items if you opted for a Glossybox/similar subscription but I found that experience far less exciting.
So far I’ve received the Pixi Glow Tonic, a Rituals body lotion, an Inika blush and the This Works Sleep+ Pillow Spray. These are either things I’ve wanted to try or things I’ll definitely use. Perfect.
I think the most wonderful thing is how excited this calendar is how it’s making me excited for every single day! I actually want to get out of bed in the morning, even when I’m beyond tired. I keep saying that this is a one off purchase and I’ll never buy something so extravagant again but honestly it’s the best thing I’ve bought myself all year.
If you’ve been debating getting yourself a beauty advent calendar each year since they started making them – go for it next year. Seriously. Especially because there are more affordable ones out there – which is what I’ll probably go for next year! I can’t imagine a better present to myself 💕
Did you buy yourself a beauty advent calendar? If so, which one? Aren’t there so many gorgeous ones out there?
