advent calendarThis year The Body Shop have released three advent calendars and I’ve managed to get my hands on The 25 Days Ultimate Advent calendar which I’m so excited about. This is a little spoiler post, I’m going to share with you a few of the items in the Advent Calendar and let you know my thoughts. For a full unboxing and first impressions head on over to my YouTube channel and watch this video.

First of all, I love The Body Shop. In fact I think my first ever luxury eyeshadow was from there, It was a green iridescent eyeshadow that I used to wear in my “clubbing” days. Oh the looks I created with that beauty. Anyway, back to the advent calendar. This is the biggest advent calendar I’ve ever had and my oh my I was excited to open it. I was hoping for some full sized products, as you know most advent calendars come with minis and smaller items. But don’t worry guys, this doesn’t disappoint you get so many goodies!

The calendar is £99 to purchase but it worth a whopping £214, wow! It’s filled with a selection beauty treats from body care and skincare, to make-up and accessories, these advent calendars are also hiding a few more surprises behind their doors. What I really love is the little feel-good action to complete every day, which is located on the back of each box. And once you’ve opened box 25, the calendar transforms into a trivia quiz to play on Christmas Day. How cool is that?!

the body shop adventIf the products in this calendar don’t quite tickle your fancy or your working with a smaller budget then I’d definitely recommend checking out the other two calendars which are actually a lower price; £45 and £65. You can read on the website the contents of the box if your not really one for surprises and if your reading this then your probably not so head on over and check them out.

Will you be buying one of these advent calendars this year?
