The duration of advent is unquestionably one of my favourite festivities about the ever-so exciting lead up to Christmas. I admit, this is mainly because it is an excuse to indulge in some sugary, sweet, chocolaty goodness for breakfast everyday and no one can judge me for it..Does it get much better than that? I thought not, but I may have been proven wrong!
..Recently I have discovered that we can now actually count down to Christmas with advent calendars that are packed full of some of our favourite beauty products..Someone hold me! All of a sudden chocolate advent calendars seem a little more mediocre, don't you think? Albeit, I am sure you will still find me tucking into a Lindt advent calendar during the month..After all, a girl still needs her chocolate fix!

Now, I may be super late on the bandwagon here, as I believe that beauty advent calendars have actually been on the scene for a fair few years now..However, over the years more and more beauty brands have boarded the beauty calendar train and developed their own, stunning Christmas Advent Calendars filled with their best selling products. This means that there has never been quite so much choice before now, and deciding which one to go for can actually prove to be a fairly difficult task..Especially when you want to make sure that you are getting the products you actually want to receive at a good value for money price. 

After doing my fair share of research by looking through hundreds of websites, reading a handful of blog reviews and even watching the odd youtube video review too, I finally made the impossible decision on which beauty advent calendar I wanted for my 2016 Christmas countdown, and I chose The Beauty Secret calendar by Look Fantastic. This calendar is a favourite of many people's every year, and this year shows to be no different as it completely sold out in just 2 weeks..Needless to say, I am absolutely thrilled (and very lucky!) that I managed to get my hands on it before it was too late!

This beauty-filled countdown is fully loaded with 25 incredibly luxurious surprises, meaning that there is a new product to be discovered every day throughout December, right up until Christmas day..It is a true treat that keeps on giving day after day! Beautifully packed inside the ginormous book shaped box, which I like to think of as my seasonal beauty bible, you will find top beauty treats ranging from skincare, to haircare, to make-up, to bodycare and everything else in between that you need to see you through the cold, winter months. With a variety of products from both our most-loved high-street brands and our favourite opulent brands too, there really is an incredible array of items to be found behind each window. From Pixi to Molton Brown, the contents of this rose-gold and white wonder are worth over £300 and its packaging makes it almost too good to spoil..Copper and white? Now, that is the way to a cliche bloggers heart! A beauty calendar really is a great pre-christmas gift, and there is no denying that it is the perfect way to discover new brands and new products that you may not have discovered otherwise! Also, the contents of one of these calendars definitely lasts longer than the chocolate ones, that's for sure!

With an abundance of our favourite beauty brands releasing their calendars ready for advent this year, it really was such a hard choice to pick just one, but I am so happy that I went with The Beauty Secret from Look Fantastic. It really has exceeded all expectations..Not only does this one come full to the brim with so many incredible products from a variety of different brands which I cannot wait to try out, but since a lot of the products are in fact full-sized it is also great value for money too! I am so excited to spend my countdown to Christmas pulling back the rest of these little windows to find many more fantastic treats..Hopefully I will even discover some future favourites in here as well!
Have you tried any beauty advent calendars in the past? Which are your favourites?
