So, last year in the lead up to Christmas, there were many Youtube videos and blogs talking about beauty advent calendars, including the Latest in Beauty one. I really wanted to get one then, but with the cost of Christmas, I couldn't really afford it.
I decided to browse their website recently, and noticed that their advent calendar was now half price. After much umm-ing and arr-ing, and not-much-needed persuasion from my boyfriend - I got it.
I paid £29.95 + £4.95 p+p which I thought was a bargain for 24 products. Although I'm meant to be saving money, my logic was that I could keep some for myself and give some as presents (therefore saving money). As it contains £210 worth of products, I thought it was a good deal.
Before I bought it, I decided to read what was inside (it was on the website) to see if it would be worth the money. I saw three items on there that I've wanted for a really long time, and so I didn't need to read any more!
I was going to open one door each day, but I couldn't resist and opened it all at once. There are some seriously amazing, and a wide range of, products, and I actually want to keep them all! I can do a blog post on what is inside if you want, let me know in the comments and I'll write one to go live on Monday.
Do you think beauty calendars are a good idea? I wasn't sure at first, but the excitement of opening those doors was too much, and I will definitely be getting one for next year! There are still some available (as far as I'm aware) so pop over to the website to have a look.
