Thoughts so far on the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar…

Can you believe that it’s only 12 days till Christmas…! I absolutely love the lead up to Christmas, especially counting down the days with an advent calendar. Nowadays there are always so many beauty calendars to choose from starting from £15 up to £300 plus but this year I got myself the Marks and Spencer Beauty advent calendar.

Here’s what I’ve received so far –
1. Nealsyard Bee lovely Handcream
2. Radial Super Acids X-treme Acid Rush Peel
3. Filorga Time Filler Cream
4. Pixi Brow Tamer
5. Josh Wood Hair Treatment Oil
6. Eyeko Liquid Eyeliner
7. Ultrasun SPF Face Cream
8. Alpha H Liquid Gold
9. Autograph Nail Polish in Cranberry
10. Nails Inc Gel Polish in Cranberry
11. Emma Hardie balm
12. Mini powder brush

I’m really impressed by the samples I have received so far as they are from really great brands, plus they are decent sizes to give the products a real test – even some full size products too! I’ve already tried out a few of these products and after one use, I’m already in love the Alpha H Liquid Gold and a full sized bottle is now on my Christmas wishlist!

Once I’ve reached the end of my calendar I will share a full run down on everything I received, but so far I’m really impressed with the quality of this calendar. Considering the M&S Beauty calendar is probably one of the cheapest on the market – £35 if you spend £35k on M&S home-wear, beauty or clothes (which was easy, as I managed to buy a few Christmas presents!) I do think it’s amazing value for money. I’m already looking forward to seeing what I find in the next box tomorrow!

Have you got a beauty calendar this year?
