Beauty Advent Calenders 2013

By  |  0 Comments

My childhood consisted only of Cadbury’s (Yes, only the best!) Advent calenders to countdown to Christmas & Santa visiting- each day being treated to a delisious festive shaped piece of chocolate. I was even told that they were fitted with secret camera’s so Mr.Clause could make sure you were on the correct list…

Nowadays they’re even better- Beauty Advent Calenders; the grown-up girls’s alternative.

Working like a traditional advent calendar, you open one door on each day of December – only instead of chocolate behind them, you get a little beauty product surprise! 

 Here are some on offer for the 2013 season;

 Benefit Countdown to Love Advent Calendar 

 The Benefit Countdown to Love calendar is their first ever and features lots of mini Benefit goodies, & is already hugely sought after and in very high demand. There’s a full contents list on the website here, if you feel like a spoiler. This would be great for someone who is new to the brand looking to experiment with different products. It is a total must for all the Benebabes out there! It’s only going on sale for one day on the Benefit website, in the Benefit Boutiques in London and Dublin, selected Debenhams stores and Sephora over in the States & Canada. The word on the street was that day was  November 2nd, but I looked on both the benefit and Debenhams website and it’s sold out. There’s alot of controversy over this at the moment, with blogger convinced Benefit only produced a select number of this product but advertised it would be widely available. I can’t find one anywhere. Hopefully there’ll be new stock in time for December 1st…
