The Marks and Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar

It’s almost December, and so I’ve got my hands on my beauty advent calendar just in the nick of time. I’ve been in such a dilemma this year over what beauty advent calendar to go with, but as soon as I discovered Marks and Spencer’s my mind was made up. 

This beauty advent calendar is priced at £35 when you spend £35 on either beauty, clothing or home wear at Marks and Spencer, and to say that the products inside are worth £250 I was impressed with the price. Because to be honest, by the time I’ve bought Christmas cards, wrapping paper, and a couple of gifts that’s the £35 benchmark easily met so I saw it as a win win situation. 

What’s inside the box: 

Look Good Feel Better: face brush

Leighton Denny Expert Nails: mini crystal nail file

ALPHA-H liquid gold 

EYEKO: skinny mini liquid eyeliner – black

Percy and Reed: perfectly perfecting wonder balm

Philip Kingsley: elasticizer

Emma Hardie: moringa cleansing balm

REN: ever calm global protection day cream

NUXE: huile prodigieuse

Skyn Iceland: Icelandic relief eye cream

Formula Absolute: ultimate sleep cream

Studio 10: miracle effect priming serum

I of course haven’t opened it up and had a sneak peak, but by looking at what’s included on the back I recognize some brands and products I love, and I’m equally excited to discover the new things to me in there. 

I absolutely love the decoration, the red colouring and the fact that it’s shaped as a Christmas tree just couldn’t be more festive. I like that the shape is different to the conventional calendar shape, it’s almost more of a decoration than a calendar if you ask me. 

It was a tough decision for me deciding what calendar to go with, especially with it being my first time trying a beauty advent calendar out. The Body Shop, House of Fraser, Makeup Revolution and various others all caught my eyes, but I just felt as though Marks and Spencer’s was amazing value, and as I had a sneak peek on the back as to what was inside I knew I was going to enjoy everything inside. 

Have you picked up a beauty advent calendar this year? If so, what did you chose?
