Beauty advent calenders 2014




Beauty advent calenders 2014


So last year I discovered that you can buy beauty advent calenders. A little beauty treat in place of your chocolate treat. Great for your diet although not soo great for your purse as they can be quite pricey. Here's my low down on this years best beauty advent calender. 

Benefit candy coated count down

The elusive benefit beauty advent calender. Last year there was a serious lack of these made and lots of very angry customers posting on their face book page about the lack of stock. And it would seem even though they have made more they have sold out increasingly quickly again this year...already showing up sold out on their website. The advent calender (if you managed to get one) is £60. Filled with 24 mini treats ranging from `that gal' and 'stay flawless' to 'they're real' and headbands and doodle pads. Being a massive benefit fan I must say I'm a little disappointed to find that there is six items which are not benefit make up. All in all a great little saver...if you can get your hands on one for the original price...eBay has them listed up to £120!! Amazing calender for benefit die hard fans but more need to be made to stop people being ripped off!


Body Shop 24 days of joy

I have become a massive fan of The body shop these last few years. With mainly affordable products at a really high quality and a no animal testing moral what's not to love. This year they have released their 24 days of joy for £50 with products ranging from 30ml hand creams and mini soaps to a shower crinkle lily to full size lip balms. Being that this is a quite highly priced item in their range you will only find this in their larger stores or online. With all orders on their website over £20 you receive free postage so you will only pay the price of the advent calender...although you don't receive your membership10% discount with this item.....mine is currently in the post and I can't wait. Keep a look out for my updates in December.


Boots no7 beauty secret



This year boots are focusing on their no7 range instead of a collection of different brands they sell. Which if I'm honest I was a little disappointed about as I thought last year's calender was such good value for money and had a great range included. The no7 advent calender is a full 25 days so you even get a little treat for Christmas day, it retails at £35 and is not available until Oct 29th. It includes a array of body, make up and face products. Including their much sought after protect and perfect intense cream. With the kit worth over £130 you are making mega savings. A must for any die hard no7 fan!


Elemis 12 days of beauty

Elemis have taken it back to the old Christmas Carole 12 days of Christmas with their offering. The set includes 12 minis which include massive favorites such as pro collagen marine cream, frangipani monoi oil and a little taster of one of their airline/hotel exclusive products. The box is quite pretty but not the most festive of patterns. Coming in at £59.50 for 12 products it is a little on the expensive side but it's a massive saving of £53.50, and from experience with elemis a little goes looooong way. ....think' id still prefer the classic 24 days though.





You beauty advent calender


Worth a whopping £249 this is a major investment for just £49.95, 24 days of pure indulgence. Including brands such as Liz Earle and molten brown this is the deluxe of deluxe calenders. You have a great range of face, body,make up tools and delightful treats to keep you entertained. The only downer on this calender is that you have to pay £4.95 postage which makes the calender £54.90....now if body shop can give you free postage I'm sure you beauty could have.


Beauty advent calenders have now become big beauty business with many company's jumping on the band wagon. I have picked but a few and there is soo many more. If you are a lover of beauty or of a certain brand find your calender and invest. Although expensive and generally mainly mini products you save a massive amount of money.
