Unboxed: The Beauty Expert 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar

**Please note this post contains spoilers**




These days advent calendars come in all varieties, sizes and price points and are no longer limited to just chocolate and one of the types that has taken off in a major way the last couple of festive seasons are beauty advent calendars!

For 2017, Beauty Expert, a full blown destination for all your beauty fixes have come up with their very own version aptly named 12 days of Christmas and needless to say just on first glance this beautiful presented calendar instantly gives that high end look and feel impression even before I peeked into the drawers and I can confirm the same high quality has definitely been passed down to the products nestled inside each of the drawers and it’s an advent that just keeps on giving! 

This beautiful looking calendar contains 12 products, but it doesn’t come cheap. With a price point of £100 which is very reasonable in my opinion, it’s definitely worth the investment and will save you a hell of lot of money providing you’ll get use out of the majority as the contents combined are worth an incredible £349 – the CULT 51 Night Cream alone is £125!  

Another aspect which particularly stands out is there’s no samples or deluxe travel sizes in sight, instead it’s fully loaded with full size versions from a wealth of quality brands such as Omorovizca, Cult 51 and Eve Lom to name a few. The all star line-up is heavily dominated by skin care and personally I would have liked to have seen more variety on the beauty front but one thing for sure your skin’s going to look pretty amazing in time for Christmas and contains the perfect pick me ups during that downtime too!

My Verdict 

The 12 days of Christmas calendar by Beauty Expert certainly started off well and ended on a high with 12 full sized surprises for just £100.00 and although it’s a little on the pricey side I think it’s certainly worth the splurge for yourself or that beauty loving friend or relative. I’m not going to lie, I did wish this was more balanced out on the beauty front but at the same time I was thrilled to find some of my all time favourites skin care brands such as Caudalie, Omorovicza and Paula’s Choice plus there’s quite a few products that have also piqued my interest too – I’m particularly intrigued about the £125 night cream and for that price tag I’m expecting to look at least 10 years younger! This advent calendar really does have it all from the stunning keepsake box, the very generous full sizes right through to the selection of the brands and the products but most of all I love that they managed to squeeze in a few iconic and cult products too. 12 days of joy right here!

    That does look amazing especially with all those full size products! I agree it would be even better if they’d included a few make-up products but it’s still not to be sneezed at!
