The Christmas countdown is really getting underway now, which for me is just as exciting as the big day itself and ever since I was a kid one of the ways I enjoyed this time was by opening my Advent Calendar each day. The excitement of wondering what’s behind the next door always made me jump out of bed early each morning, but I’ve never been a big chocolate fan so I always opted for a jelly / candy alternative to enjoy. These days there is so much more choice when it comes to Advent Calendars and being a self confessed beauty addict I’m so pleased that there is now a way to indulge my addiction to help me to look my best throughout the festive season.
If you want to indulge in some fantastic beauty treats throughout December in the lead up to Christmas Day, then you are in for a fabulous treat as once again Marks & Spencer have created the must have Beauty Advent Calendar of the season, filled with 24 days of surprises, containing luxurious skincare, make up and fragrance treats to give you a top to toe pampering in the lead up to Christmas, including some of my most favourite brands such as Alpha H, Shay And Blue, Filorga and Nails Inc to name a few.
This beauty advent calendar combines the modern day need for a change when it comes to gifting at Christmas but embraces a traditional style with the design of this substantial collection. The detail of the design on each of the numbered boxes is spectacular and I can’t wait to start opening them each day. Also the value is incredible as the contents would be worth a staggering £250 if purchased direct from each of these brands, but you can indulge yourself for only £35, but be quick as I missed out on last years I wouldn’t hang about too long.
Half of the excitement about an Advent Calendar is the surprise of wondering what’s behind each of the doors, so I’m not going to spoil that for you but I will list the contents so you have an idea of what to expect.
