Advent Calendars

I know that I am a bit late, but as it is December tomorrow (finally!), I thought that a post on advent calendars would be perfectly festive! As some of you may know, beauty advent calendars are on the rise and so I have not been able to resist and bought three! These are probably the most affordable ones, so if you are on a budget like me you may be able to get them too, and we can share in the Christmas excitement! It's like a present to yourself!

No 7 '25 Days of Beauty Wonders'

This is the most expensive at £38, but the overall price of the product is actually £148 so it is quite the bargain! I also split the price half way with my mum as we are gonna share it because she likes skincare and I like makeup and this has got both. All of the boxes are quite large so you can tell that the products inside are of a decent size, which is also good value for money. 

Yankee Candle 

This is £20, the cheapest of the bunch, which I think is a really good price as you get 24 tea light candles, all with different Christmassy scents, and a votive candle too for an extra treat, which would normally be a lot more money buying them individually. I am addicted to candles, especially from Yankee Candle as the scent payoff is so good! In the autumn and winter months, as soon as I get home and it is dark, I light candles, and it instantly makes my house so much cosier. I will definitely use this advent calendar every day.

Tanya Burr 'Deck The Hauls'

This advent calendar is by the beautiful Youtuber Tanya Burr and is £25. If you don't know who she is, I would highly suggest that you watch her videos as she is a marvel to watch and amazingly skilled at makeup! She recently came out with a makeup line, and this is her own advent calendar. The only draw back to this one is that it only goes up to 12 days, but I am just going to open it every other day as an extra little pick me up. This could also mean that the products inside are possibly bigger, meaning more value for money again. 

I am now extremely excited for these cold mornings throughout December coming up! If you would like me to tell you my thoughts after Christmas of these advent calendars for next year, just let me know!

Have you bought any advent calendars?
