I treated myself to the No7 Beauty Wonders Advent Calendar to count down to Christmas. Here’s what was inside the calendar and whether or not I’d buy it again this year…
I’m so used to having a Cadbury’s chocolate advent calendar that I fancied upgrading to a beauty one in 2015. I signed up to find out when the No7 Beauty Wonders Advent Calendar would be released and how I could get my hands on it. I eventually bought it in the Boots at Westfield Stratford in late November and I think it sold out within a week.
First impressions, the Beauty Wonders advent calendar looked exciting. It had bold pink and red stripes with glitter around the sides. Protected by a plastic cover with a bow on the top!
I love the fact that there were 25 doors to open, as most advent calendars stop at Christmas Eve. Over the month, I opened doors to either full size or travel size products, including (but not in order):
Stay Perfect Eyeliner
Extravagant Volume Waterproof Mascara
Smokey Eye Pencil
Protect & Perfect Hand Cream
Lovely Lashes Mascara
Beautiful Skin Eye Make-up Remover
Protect & Perfect Day Cream
Beautiful Skin Blissful Body Wash
Instant Illusions Airbrush Away Primer
Beautiful Skin Radiance Exfoliator
Shine & Tint Lipgloss
Nail Varnish x3
Protect & Perfect Night Cream
Stay Perfect Eyeliner x2
Beautiful Skin Perfecting Body Polish
Youthful Eye Serum
I have genuinely enjoyed each and every one of these products. It’s also nice to be able to try travel sized products and they’re handy sizes to stash away in my sample drawer! I’m not disappointed by any of these products and I would definitely consider purchasing a beauty advent calendar again! The only downside to this one? Some of the doors were ridiculously hard to open so I had to break away some of the packaging to actually prise the product out. But other than that, I loved it!
Have you bought a beauty advent calendar before?
