Look Fantastic Advent Calendar 2018

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar 2018

Well here we go! Yes, I’m talking about my first Advent Calendar of the season! Sorry if it’s too early for you BUT I’m trying to make sure you guys have all my Advent Calendar unboxings and reviews in plenty of time to help you decide which ones you’re going to treat yourself to this year. And first up we have the very special Look Fantastic Beauty Advent Calendar! So let’s get stuck right in!

This year’s calendar has a gorgeous design – I love traditional Christmas colours and this is bright red with gold accents. It’s simple yet elegant and looks really enticing. It’s also absolutely HUGE  – as you’ll see from my unboxing video on YouTube – it’s bigger than my torso! So it shows that you’re getting something substantial and of a good size. The great thing about this calendar is the price – it’s £79. Which compared to other calendars this year isn’t too bad at all – especially when you see that some are up to £300+

The really exciting thing about this calendar though, is that for your £79 you get over £300 worth of products inside. And they range between full size and travel size, with very few being sample sized. So it’s a great way to try some new beauty goodies and get good sized and top quality products for your money. Seeing as the calendar has been filled with some of Look Fantastic’s best loved brands and products, you can guarantee that there’s going to be only the very best and most premium in here. And take my word for it – there is.

Also worth a mention is that the calendar contains 25 gifts – which is one more than a lot – which mostly stop on Christmas Eve. But within the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar there are a full and exciting 25 – with a very special and full sized product for you to open on Christmas Day too. And every single one is gift wrapped individually, so you get a little gift to open every day, which is such a lovely and thoughtful touch. No expense has been spared with this calendar.

So let’s get to the good bit – WHAT’S INSIDE!

**This is where the spoilers are, so look away now if you don’t want to know exactly what’s inside!**

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Contents

I’m going to start with some of my absolute favourites from inside the calendar. It was so, so hard to find ‘favourites’ as I wasn’t disappointed with anything in the calendar at all. But there’s a few stand out items for me. Starting with the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I love this brand but they’ve not always been the easiest to get hold of here in the UK, so I love seeing them more. And even more so finding them in this advent calendar! This is their travel sized moisturiser which retails at £10.50 and I love it because it’s chemical free and contains no parabens. It’s perfect for use on skin conditions as well as winter dry skin. LOVED opening this one.

I also loved the HD Brows x Look Fantastic Contour and Colour Pro Palette which retails for £60! This full sized palette is the substantial treat you find behind door number one – which sets the precedent for the whole calendar. Containing six cheek products including bronzer, blusher and highlight, this palette offers universal shades that will suit most skin tones. I can’t wait to use this and I think everyone would love to find this on day number one. I also loved the matching Look Fantastic cheek brush which is dual ended and goes really well with the palette, but that comes later in the month! (Worth £10.)

A huge surprise was finding none other than skincare brand Omorovicza inside this year’s Look Fantastic Advent Calendar. I couldn’t believe another such amazing brand was hiding inside, but it was. You’ll find a 30ml of their Moor Cream Cleanser. The full 150ml of this costs £52, so this is a great introduction to one of their best selling cleansers. It’s a gentle but detoxifying and exfoliating cleanser that doesn’t leave skin tight or uncomfortable. I find it’s really nice for everyday, especially in the evenings when you remove your make up.

Another stand-out favourite for me was the Mane n Tail Shampoo & Conditioner. I use the Mane n’ Tail products a lot and I really notice a difference to the ends of my hair when so, plus I love to always have a stash of shampoo & conditioner in my bathroom and switch between which ones I use, so these are always welcome additions to my beauty stash. Especially because they’re the perfect travel size, so good for when you’re going away but don’t want to cart the full sized and heavy bottles with you.

    that is one hell of an advent calendar! I’m hoping to get my hands on a No7 one this year, but i love how Look Fantastics gives you a little taste of a lot of brands! I feel like boots/superdrug would benefit from something like this that allows you to try a number of brands!

    Wow, that’s an amazing calendar! So many incredible products and such great value too, with how much they’re worth altogether! xxx

    it looks like a really good beauty advent calendar though I couldn’t justify spending that much on one. I mean, it’s totally worth the price given the contents but it’s just too much money for me, as are the majority of the other calendars this year. Loved your video on this too by the way – first time I’ve felt even slightly Christmassy this year. 🙂 x
