“As the season changes and the days become quite bleak… blankets begin to make a reappearance on the sofa and coats on the back of our seats. Around this magical time of the year, there’s only TRULY one thing on my mind, which has to be the lead up to the day – December, twenty-five”.
If last year wasn’t hectic enough – this year – it would appear that our obsession with Advent Calendars really has reached a whole new level! From the classic chocolate ones to NOW Alcoholic themed-calendars, it seems as though every brand is getting involved… which may have just taken the fun out of the Advent Calendar altogether?!
With SO many different Advent Calendars available, I must say that it was a little difficult to know for sure, which Calendar I was actually going to invest my money into for this year – especially when so many of these Calendars look like duplicates of the year before?! Although, after a little bit of research, I must say that the Look Fantastic Beauty Advent Calendar stayed strong and with that appealed to me the most!
The ‘Count-Down Calendar’
The Look Fantastic Advent Calendar houses twenty-five – carefully selected – beauty products, which are each individually wrapped in tissue paper and then boxed.
The Advent Calendar includes nine full-sized products and sixteen deluxe samples – nineteen of which are exclusive to Look Fantastic! In all, I would have to say that this Advent Calendar is good value for money in my opinion – especially if you like a bit of skincare – because it retails for £75 but holds a supposed value of £300, which is extraordinary value, to say the least!

In all, I would have to tell you that I am very pleased with my choice.
After agreeing with myself that I would only buy ONE expensive Beauty Advent Calendar this year – as opposed to the three that I bought last year – it really was a big decision for me because there are so many different Calendars to choose from, by SO many exciting brands that I also adore.
I really like how Look Fantastic have almost recycled this product for you too… because once you’ve finished opening all of the goodies on December 25th, you can indeed carry on using the Beauty In Wonderland Calendar as either a piece of storage – to possibly house your makeup OR even as a type of jewellery box! There are also some glorious products inside this calendar that I know I am going to enjoy testing and trying out… It provides an excellent opportunity of being able to try a numerous of different products (particularly skincare based) for a very reasonable price, that otherwise, I may have not been able to get my hands on.
