12 Days of Christmas 2016 - Day 8 x

One thing I love about Christmas is the Advent Calendars as they really get me so excited in the lead up to the big day. If you want to see my post showing you loads of options check out the other days of the 12 Days of Christmas but today I thought I'd talk you through the one I actually went for and exactly what's in it!

After a hell of a lot of deliberating I finally decided that I would go for the Selfridges Beauty Workshop Advent Calendar at £65.
This is the cheaper of the 2 Selfridges Calendars but has less high end products in there. The calendar is a 24 day calendar which I wanted as last year I did 2 12 days which was good as I got to try 2 different calendars but the cost soon racked up. The calendar boasts a value of £230 so whatever happens I have bagged myself a bargain of £230 of products for about 30% of the price. 

The design fits with the whole Selfridges theme this year which is basically a Christmas Disco which is really bright and fun. 

Now for the products: 

Obviously I haven't opened them all yet but I can give you my initial thoughts on each product included. 

  • Smith & Cult Lipgloss 75ml (£17.72 value)
  • STARSKIN Bio Cellulose Eye Catcher (£8.50 value)
  • Tweezerman Mini Slanted Tweezers (approx £10 value)
  • Too Faced Mini Better Than Sex Mascara (approx £8 value)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Glitter (£11 value)
  • Dr Paw Paw Original Balm 10ml (approx £3.50 value)
  • Foreo Luna Play (£29 value)
  • Merci Handy Hand Sanitiser (£2.60 value)
  • Rodial Bee Venom Deluxe Cleanser 20ml (£10 value)
  • Ole Henricksen Truth Serum 7ml (£12 value)
  • Molton Brown Bushukan Body Wash 100ml (£6.67 value)
  • Erborian CC Cream 5ml (£5.67 value)
  • Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner (approx £6 value)
  • Caudelie Premier Cru Eye Cream 5ml (£16.33 value)
  • Eve Lom Cleanser 30ml (£12.75 value)
  • Eyelure Enchanted Afterdark Lashes (approx £5 value)
  • Too Cool for school Egg Mellow Cream Mini 6g (approx £10 value)
  • NPW Cat Lip Balm (£5 value)
  • Beauty Blender Blotterazzi (£16 value)
  • Philip Kingsley Geranium and Neroli Elasticizer 40ml(£6.40 value)
  • Bbrowbar Brow Tamer (£12 value) 
  • This Works Deep Pillow Spray 5ml (£1 value)
  • Lord & Berry Lip Crayon (£10 value) 
  • Invissibobble Hair Bands (£3.95 value) 
My calculations add up to about £220 but some were estimates so I think the value is very much worth it. 

There is actually only 1 product in the whole calendar I'm not excited about which is the this works spray purely because I get it free all the time in hotels however all the other products in this calendar are very good value and there is a real range in brands to try out which is very exciting. 

So that was a run down of my advent calendar let me know in the comments below what advent calendar you went for!

Until Next Time ...
