The Body Shop Enchanted Deluxe Advent Calendar – FULL CONTENTS!

Posted on November 20, 2018

This year The Body Shop have launched not one, not two, but three absolutely gorgeous beauty Advent Calendars! The theme this year is Enchanted Forest, and each calendar is based around a different woodland animal, which I love! I have the mid priced calendar to share with you today, but before I get into this, I’ll just give you a quick overview of the other two available calendars –

Firstly the 24 Days Of The Enchanted Advent Calendar – this has an Owl theme, and costs £45, but is worth £85. This calendar is packed with mini essentials to give new The Body Shop customers a crash-course in cruelty-free beauty. It includes the classic Body Butter, Shea Hand Cream, Matte Lip Liquids, Coconut Body Scrub and Strawberry Shower Gel.

And the 25 Days Of The Enchanted Ultimate Advent Calendar – this one has a Fox theme, it costs £99 and is worth £231. This. luxury advent calendar includes 25 cruelty-free gifts, including 14 full-size products and the most luxurious of skincare ranges. Featuring the bestselling Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask as well as the Moringa Body Yogurt for fast-absorbing moisture. Other treats include Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil and the Almond Milk and Honey Body Lotion to soothe winter skin.

Now on to the 25 Days of Enchanted Deluxe Advent Calendar. This stunning calendar has a Deer theme (Dani the Deer in fact!) It costs £65 and is worth £121.

I just wanted to quickly say, I’m reviewing quite a few advent calendars this year, and The Body Shop’s calendars are definitely the most attractive – I forgot to include a picture of the outer box, which features a large print of Dani the Deer, but you can see all the inside boxes are beautifully decorated. I just wanted to note that The Body Shop have done an outstanding job with their packaging this year!

On to the products now! So this calendar contains 25 beauty treats, including a fair amount of full sizes, such as a 200ml Coconut Body Butter, Eyeliner, Eyelash Curler and Liquid Lipstick. There’s also plenty of deluxe mini products to keep you going throughout December, including shower gels, body butters, hand cream, lip balm and much more, and of course these feature some of the most popular fragrances from The Body Shop.

I should mention that each of the boxes also set you small, fun daily tasks to help you reconnect with nature, which I think is a lovely touch. This advent calendar is also incredibly high quality, so it would be perfect for re-using and gifting to a loved one next Christmas 🙂

Here’s what’s inside –

  • Peppermint Candy Cane Shower Gel 60ml

Posted on November 19, 2018

Today I have the wonderful NYX Professional Makeup Advent Calendar to share with you!

NYX is a fantastic mid-range brand offering affordable cosmetics in a massive range of shades. I think they can often be overlooked when it comes to high street brands, but they really do have some fab products – I love their Butter Lip Glosses especially.

Their 2018 ‘Sugar Trip’ Advent Calendar contains a selection of lip products, eyeshadows, highlighters, and one blush. All come in super cute mini sizes, and each of the powder products open up like little books – I’m not sure how practical these are (maybe they can be popped out to put in a palette) but they do look SO sweet. This is very much novelty packaging that’s perfect for Christmas, and I have to say I love it! The whole calendar is fun and colourful, and packed with a fantastic varied selection of NYX treats.

Go on a sweet journey with the Sugar Trip 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar. Featuring fan-fave formulas in 24 new shades, this limited-edition collection takes you through our makeup-loving squad’s dreamworld. Uncover stunning lippies, like Soft Matte Lip Cream and Butter Gloss, as well as velvety eyeshadows, highlighters and blush along the way. From 10 blendable powders to 14 mid-size lip colors, this amazing assortment is your one-stop shop for treats.

I should mention though, some of the shades included are pretty out there – expect to find cornflour blue, dark brown and black coloured lip products, which definitely won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. Most of the rest of the shades are pretty wearable though, and the powder products especially will be suited to just about anyone.

The lip products include –

  • Butter Lip Gloss in Glaze-y Days
  • Butter Lip Gloss in Sweet Nothing
  • This is Everything Lip Oil in Candy Pop
  • This is Everything Lip Oil in Cranberry Mint
  • Lip Lingerie in Deep Rooted
  • Lip Lingerie in Slip
  • Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Starstruck
  • Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Peanut Brittle
  • Velvet Matte Lipstick in Fluff Piece
  • Velvet Matte Lipstick in Sorbae
  • Soft Matte Lip Cream in Kiev
  • Soft Matte Lip Cream in Vienna
  • Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream in Nantes
  • Slip Tease Lip Lacquer in Poppin’

And for the face and eyes –

  • Eyeshadow in Sweet Tooth
  • Eyeshadow in Whipped Mocha
  • Eyeshadow in Twisted
  • Eyeshadow in Deep Trouble
  • Eyeshadow in Cookie Cutter
  • Eyeshadow in Candy Stash
  • Highlighter in Pop N Rock
  • Highlighter in Cinnamon Spice
  • Highlighter in Candy Cloud
  • Blush in Lollipop Hop

Sorry I don’t have my own swatches for these, but happy to provide some if you want to see them, just let me know! Overall I think this is a fab little advent calendar, and would definitely suit someone that loves to play around with colour!

Hothair are also back again this year, offering a set of their amazing Human Hair Triple Weft 22″ Extensions (£250.00) – these luxury 100% Remy human hair extensions have been double drawn to create long, flowing, thick hair, and the cuticles of the hair have been laid in the direction that your hair would naturally grow in, meaning the hair is less likely to tangle, is long lasting and has a healthy sheen. They can be heated and styled to your hearts content, and the winner will get to choose which shade they would like.

Crabtree & Evelyn are back again too this year, and this time they’re giving away three of their gorgeous winer scented candles (£42.00 each) – The White Cardamom Candle includes winter warming notes of sweet Mimosa and mulled spice essences of Cardamom. The Noel Candle has wintry notes of aromatic Fir Tree Branches studded with tangy Citrus Zest and Mulled Spices.
