Rethink Your Christmas Advent Calendar
Gone are the days when you can run down to the supermarket to grab your favourite chocolate advent calendar.
As always, the industry is changing and I've chose to invest my money in beauty advent calendars these past few years.
I've rounded up four of my favourites that I think will suit everyone! I also don't want to be a big spoiler so I've just mentioned a few of the brands included instead of showing you exactly what's in it.
First up is The Budget Calendar. Just because it's a beauty calendar doesn't mean you need to spend in excess of £100 on it. This calendar from Dirty Works is perfect for bath lovers and also those teens who are getting into their beauty regime. And at only £15 sold in Sainsburys, you can't go wrong hey?
Next up is ASOS. I believe this is the first year they've created an advent calendar and in true ASOS style, it is designed to perfection. This is the first I've seen that actually has windows that you need to pop open which helps you resist the temptation of peaking before the day. Brands featured include Nip & Fab, Model Co, DIY Nails, Cowshed and Burts Bees. This beautiful calendar costs only £40.
Out of all the ones I've seen/chosen, the Marks & Spencer one has to be my favourite, simply due to the fact it's in the shape of a tree (easily pleased, I know). This is going to be up for 25 days, so it has to make a statement and look extra pretty in our homes, right? It also has sections that slide out for you to open your daily present, making each day spectacular.
This calendar costs £35 if you spend £35 on clothing beauty or homeware, and is available from November 10th.
Features Philip Kingsley, Eyeko, Rodial, Neals Yard & many others!
