i am pretty adamant while buying gifts.
thanks for this list. the ideas are actually pretty unique and this informational article is now in my bookmarks. lots of weddings and lots of birthdays coming up. Christmas too. let's see where this helps us the most. CIAO!
 
Thanks for the ideas these are great. :D I didn't realise there were so many good beauty advent calendars out there.

I like the look of The Body Shop share the love and joy advent for myself.

When I saw the Lush one, it made me think of one of my best friends who used to love all of their products, so she was always an easy Christmas present to buy for. It reminds me of how you can always smell a Lush shop in the shopping centre before you see it.....smell it a mile off. 🤣
 
I’ve tried the body shop one and it’s really lovely and really good value. I’ve also bought it for my sister too. I think this year I’ll be getting the LookFantastic advent calendar ☺️

OMG yes! I need all of these right now. I've never used an advent calendar for beauty supplies, but I'm for sure going to grab myself one this holiday season.

The LookFantastic one looks great and wow what a saving on that one. Definitely worth the money. I hope you enjoy opening this advent calendar. :D
