- Marks & Spencers
- Yankee Candle
- Charlotte Tilbury
- Look Fantastic
- Sanctuary Spa
As you can see, there were quite a few that I was trying to choose from. As love Nuxe products but for me it was just over my budget as was the NYX one and of course the Charlotte Tilbury one. The Look Fantastic one seemed to sell out almost straight away and I knew that I really didn't need anymore candles (I have just bought 6, yes 6! of the Bath and Body works dupes from B & M) so that put the Yankee Candle one out of the question too. So that left me with just two - The M & S one and Sanctuary Spa. I found it feel difficult to choose between the two but then decided that I would just be buying things for the sake of it if I went for the M & S one because you have to spend £35 to become eligible to buy the calendar which then costs another £35. I certainly didn't need anything more, although I did think about getting a couple of the Rosie for Autograph make up pieces.
As with all beauty calendars, it is quite bulky, but you can't expect anything less. However, the packaging is beautiful with the gold edging and spots on a simple white background. The gold really catches the light, so I can't wait to place it near the Christmas tree so it can glisten more! The bow-like feature on the front makes it look like a Christmas present which is great because you could then place it anywhere.
The Sanctuary Spa beauty advent calendar comes in at a cost of £25 which is really affordable, especially when you get your points in Boots from this as well. With the points I've received, I'm hoping to get some bargins in the January sales, so I definitely feel like I have made the right choice!
Have you chosen your Beauty Advent Calendar yet? If so I'd love to know what you have chosen, so don't forget to leave me a comment!
Until next time
