2018 Beauty Advent Calendars

The good old-fashioned chocolate advent calendar of our youth has evolved and the beauty industry is cashing in on this childhood December ritual.

 The 2018 calendars have begun to arrive in the office so I thought you might like a sneak preview of what’s on offer.

 I didn’t want to open all of the calendar doors and spoil the surprise so have only opened a couple to give you an idea of the treats inside.

Includes 2 full sized products and 22 mini products from both the colour and skincare range. Packaging is not particularly exuberant, cardboard with colourful baubles scattered across the front. 

The box opens up at the ends allowing you to remove the products inside via a plastic tray if you can’t possibly wait until the next day.
 The products inside however are a nice mix of neutral colours to suit all and a great way to introduce Clinique skincare to someone who want’s to test the range out without too much commitment.

 This is my favourite packaging simply because it’s completely re-usable. It’s a rectangle freestanding block that revolves around itself to reveal a new side and more drawers.

 Bright, fun and attractive and very well made. Nice to keep year after year as you can pop your own treats inside the drawers for someone else or a child.
 Products are a mix of bath, body and face products all in the various fragrance offerings that L’Occitane has.

 The ultimate luxury calendar. This smells amazing, before you’ve even opened a single door.

 It’s super heavy and free stands. It opens up like a book and reveals a beautiful etched London scene inside.
 I couldn’t bring myself to open the doors but if you've forked out £150 then you probably deserve the suprise!



  1. I really want to try one of these out, but I just don't know if I can justify spending that much money!
