To me, advent calendars are very important because, they set the scene of christmas. Every time that you open a day, you can feel Christmas getting closer and closer, and it’s such a nice feeling! So as you can imagine, it was really important to me that I found a really nice advent calendar – that obviously was beauty related! Although this calendar only has 12 days, it doesn’t lose the effect of Christmas edging closer, it enhances it! I open it every other day, so it makes it seem even more special. However, I do wish it was 24 days, because it costs a lot of money, and the products aren’t even full size.
Although the products aren’t full sized, you do get enough product to last you a few weeks, if you use it everyday. I got the ‘Total Moisture Facial Cream’, which I’ve been using in the morning, as the last step in my skin care, and I actually really like it, so I will probably buy the full size. Also, the ‘Sugarbomb Ultra Plush Lip Gloss’ is really nice, so I will probably buy the full size of that.
When you open each day, it has a very brief description of the product, so you know what it is, which is great, especially if the product is new to you.
The only things that let it down is, the price and the size of the products. I think that it costs way too much for what you get, and what you get is only enough to figure out whether you like it or not. I suppose that could be a good thing, but benefit products are very expensive, and when you’re on a budget, it would be nice to have substantial samples! Anyway, I really have enjoyed opening each day!
Let me know in the comments what advent calendar you have, I’d love to know!
