What Did I Get In My Advent Calendars This Week // Week 2

Beauty & Makeup Advent Calendar Unboxing

If you didn’t read part one, find it here.

So I’m such a fan of an advent calendar… it allows you to try so many new products that you would otherwise not have afforded all in one month! It feels like you go shopping every morning of the month and I’m beyond excited to try everything out over January!

Now these posts I share with you what I got and the value of what it is from my Look Fantastic and Cult Beauty advent calendars

Day 8 – Eve Lom Cleanser

This is one of those things I’ve had in the past, but I really wasn’t into solid cleansers so I didn’t appreciate it. But now I’m a little older & wiser, I’m here with it again and beyond excited to try it!

Value: £18

Day 9 – Diego Dalla Palma Eye Pencil

Day 11 – Allies of Skin 20% Vitamin C Brightening Firm Serum

  1. I’ve been reading up on other people’s advent calendars as I was so in two minds about which one I wanted to get. I got the ASOS one and although it’s got amazing brands I’m a bit annoyed it’s basically all skincare, not even body care or makeup. I would have thought the Cult beauty would have more makeup, but it’s nice to see the Look Fantastic one does! xx


  2. I had no idea there were Advent calendars out there that weren’t just chocolates until I started seeing these kinds of posts. It’s so interesting! And much more useful, thank you for sharing.

  3. I love beauty advent calendars although I decided against getting one this year. You’ve got some great products this week. You’ve got a good mix of make up and skincare.
