The girls and I have given ourselves a different Advent Calendar this year and opted for a beauty one.
Of course, given the discount we get, it had to be a Birchbox Calendar and, having had a look around, I am pretty sure we are not going to be disappointed!
The design of it, to start with, it’s super cute: two doors cover all the different boxes to get to your surprises, which is a pretty great way to keep it away from the eyes & temptations! The actual box is sturdy, and we have already decided to reuse it somehow, as it would make a very nice little treasure box for our mum and her passion for jewelry. It will ship to Italy in the new year, and the mother is a pretty happy lady already.
24 surprises, 10 full size products, all in all worth £179 – not bad for a first time!
But so we went through week 1 and I must say it did start better than I though, so go on and read what we unboxed for this first week.
DAY 1 – Benefit Roller Lash Mascara in Black, here.
DAY 2 – P’URE Papayacare Papaya Lips Paw Paw with Calendula, here.
DAY 3 – Rituals The Ritual of Ayurveda Hand Balm in Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil, here.
DAY 4 – Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter, here.
DAY 5 – Caudalie SOS Thirst Quenching Serum, here.
DAY 6 – LOC One and Done Shadow Stick in Peachy Sheen, here.
DAY 7 – Jiinju Beauty Exfoliating Face Pad Duo, here.
I am pretty happy with most findings, and my top 3 can definitely be given to day 5, day 6 and day 7: I do love myself a little serum, having just discovered how great they can be for my skin, the shadow on stick is the only way forward AND who does not appreciate a bit of K Beauty every now and again?!
Next week with the rest of week 2, keep your eyes peeled.
