Latest In Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing!

Latest In Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing!

Advent Calendar season in the beauty world is my absolute favourite time of year. Bar none. The bigger and more popular that Beauty Advent Calendars have become, the better they get every year. There’s more and more popping up across a huge variety of brands too – which means the love I have for them gets to extreme levels. This girl loves Beauty Advent Calendars.

There’s always some stand-out ones for me each year though. And these will be the ones I decide to feature here on Lady Writes. There’s just so many to pick from that it can be hard to know which one to spend your money on. Because when some of them go over the £300 mark, you need to make sure that whichever you pick is worth it. And when I say worth it – for me that means you get a good return on your spend: full sized products, and a much higher value of products inside than the price of the calendar as a whole. Which is why the Latest In Beauty Advent Calendar 2018 is one of this years top picks and I’m very happy to recommend it to you.

The Latest In Beauty Advent Calendar this year is one of the best value on the market. If you’re looking for a calendar that offers an array of products across make up, skincare, hair care and more then this is one to get. It’s absolutely HUGE as well – one of this years biggest, which means I was a happy girl from the second I saw it! The calendar itself is blue with gold accents and gold ribbon, which unties and the calendar opens out like a book. The dual sided calendar has 24 doors all revealing a mix of full sized and travel/sample sized products behind them. Costing just £60, the value inside is a huge £255+ which makes it one of this years best value beauty calendars.

So let’s get stuck in! I’m going to show you the stand-out products that I was thrilled to find inside – which means from her eon out you’ll find spoilers! Only read ahead if you want to see the full product breakdown!

The first standout item for me was one of my favourite sheet masks – the Garnier SkinActive Pure Charcoal Mask is one of most repurchased sheet masks ever. It’s so good for my oily skin and large pores. Sheet masks are always a winner for any beauty enthusiast, so you can’t really go wrong with them. And considering it’s designed to purify and hydrate, it should work well for all skin types.

Another stand out product inside was The White Company Winter Travel Candle. Which you can smell before you even open the door! It’s the perfect wintery and Christmassy blend of spices with a warm and inviting edge. It’s just the perfect winter candle and absolutely something I’d repurchase at full price after finding it inside the calendar. It’s one of the smaller travel sizes, but you still get up to 18 hours of burn time from it, making it a real indulgent treat.

One product I was really excited about was the Charles Worthington Grow Strong Protein Treatment. As someone with fine hair, this sounds right up my street – anything to help me strengthen my hair is worth trying! This full size 150ml bottle reconstructs hair to make it up to 6x stronger after just one application. I’m excited to start using this.

A great skincrae find inside was the Oskia London Nutri-Active Day Cream. This 10ml sample size of day cream is created by one of the skincare great brands to balance skin and increase radiance. If you’ve never tried Oskia products this is a great introduction to their brand – who get skincare right every time. I love the little tube as it’s completely handbag friendly.

One product I started using as soon as I opened it was the Murad Renewing Eye Cream. This sample sized cream has been a lovely under eye treatment I’ve been using nightly before bed. It’s only 4ml, but mine last me a good week or so, which I was pleased with and it helped to brighten my under eye area a lot. Each morning after applying the night before, I’d notice the under eye area looking just that little bit brighter and more awake. I’ll be buying the full size of this for sure.
