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 ...
