Beauty Advent Calendars Days 10-13

I can’t believe I’m over half way through my advent calendars! Here’s a look at what gifts I’ve got the past few days in my three beauty calendars. 

Tanya Burr 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar

Day 10

On day ten I got another glitter eyeliner in the shade Treasured. It’s a beautiful rose gold colour and as I love receiving glitter makeup, I’m really happy with this. 

Day 11

On day eleven I got a sparkly red nail polish in the shade Sleigh Bells. This looks absolutely stunning and is one of the items I was most excited to get from this calendar. I can’t wait to use it.

Day 12

The final gift in the Tanya Burr calendar was another beautiful glitter nail polish in the shade Glitter Rain. This is a sparkly silver and will be great to wear in the lead up to Christmas.

So that’s the Tanya Burr calendar complete. It was a really great calendar for the price, with lots of gorgeous, glittery beauty items. I’m sad there was only twelve days, as it definitely held it’s own against the more expensive beauty calendars this year. 

The Body Shop 24 Happy Days Advent Calendar

Day 10

For day ten I got a Strawberry Lip Butter. Whilst this is better than some of the gifts I’ve got in this calendar lately, I did get the exact same product in the Body Shop calendar last year. I find this lip butter okay, but as it’s a creamy formula it does leave my lips looking white rather than applying as a sheer lip balm.

Day 11

Day eleven’s gift I was very happy with. I received a Vanilla Chai Body Lotion. I’ve held off buying much of the Body Shop’s Christmas range, as I was hoping to get some bits in this calendar. This smells sweet and yet quite subtle. I’m looking forward to using it.

Day 12

On day twelve I opened up my calendar to find a black pencil eyeliner. Again, I got one of these in the Body Shop calendar last year. As I rarely use pencil eyeliners, I’ll be including this in a giveaway. 

Day 13

So today, I got a set of eyelash curlers. Another repeat offender, as I got the exact same eyelash curlers last year. The quality of this product is good, but as I rarely use the ones I have, these will be included in a giveaway too. 

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar

Day 10

On day ten I got a set of Ardell Wispies eyelashes. I haven’t used false eyelashes for quite a while, but I was looking to get a set to wear over Christmas. These look lovely and quite natural, so I’m excited to try them out. 

Day 11

On day eleven I got a small pot of the Cristophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask. I know this is a pricey brand and the tub looks and feels it too. As my hair is bleached, I can never have too many hair masks, so this is another product I’m really happy to receive. 

Day 12

Wow! That was my first impression when I opened up door twelve yesterday. Inside was a Foreo Luna Play Facial Cleansing Device and a mini Awakening Radiance Yoghurt Cleanser to go with it. I knew this would be in the calendar, but I assumed it would be behind one of the last doors. 

The Foreo Luna Play is a vibrating facial cleansing device, that helps clean the skin deeper and more effectively than just cleansing the skin manually. I’ll continue to use my Clarisonic at home and I’ll be taking this away for any upcoming trips, as it’s super compact. I love that a cleanser has also been included to use with it. 

Day 13

So, today’s gift was a mini bottle of the Wella Professionals Oil Reflections Shampoo. This shampoo is meant to be great at making hair softer, more manageable and adding shine. Another item I’m really happy with.

So that’s my roundup of the goodies I’ve received the past few days. I’ll be doing a calendar update again at the end of the week.

  1. It looks like you got some great stuff in your calendars recently. That Tanya Burr one was really nice I feel like you got something good each day compared to the Body Shop one. Shame it only lasted 12 days :’) x

  2. Wow, what awesome products! I love the shade Sleigh Bells from the Tanya Burr advent calendar.

    It’s crazy you got a Foreo in the Look Fantastic calendar! I’ve always wanted to try one. My Clarisonic is 5 years old now and starting to die, so I think a Foreo might be my next investment.

    Do you think you’ll get another Body Shop calendar next Christmas? Seems like you haven’t been overly impressed with this year’s!

    • I love the look of Sleigh Bells too. I can’t wait to use it☺ I know, I was so happy to get it. I’ve heard a lot about how great Foreo is, so I was delighted when I got it yesterday😊 I got the Body Shop calendar last year and loved it. But this year there’s been a lot of practical items like sharpeners, eyelash curlers, etc instead of actual bath and body stuff. So I have been a bit disappointed x

  3. The Sleigh Bells nail polish is beautiful, I definitely want the Tanya Burr calendar next year. Like you said it’s a shame it’s only 12 days but if that means the quality of the products is better then I think I’d still be pleased! The Look Good Advent calendar looks amazing too, poor Body Shop. You won’t be asking for another of those will you ha ha x

    • It’s so beautiful. I’d definitely recommend the Tanya Burr calendar. It’s been great😊 I was sad it’s only a twelve day calendar, but it’s better to have twelve good items I guess☺ Look Fantastic is great too. Haha I wont be unless they drastically improve it next year😂 xx

      • Yes, if I get any next year it will definitely be Tanya’s. Exactly! Seems like the Body Shop could have done with being just 12 days, seriously slacking lol! I’d never heard of Look Fantastic until now, where did you get it from? Ha maybe they should read your post for some pointers xx

      • It’s the cheapest one but it’s been great! 😊 Haha yes they should do twelve days. Feels like they just wanted to make money this year and included cheaper products. Look Fantastic’s a website that do their own calendar. Haha they should. My advice is stop including sponges, pencil sharpeners and eyelash curlers😂 xx

      • No way! It looks awesome. Ah that’s a shame 😦 silly body shop no one will buy next year! Oh cool! I’ll have to check it out thanks hun 🙂 Lol be sure to let them know that, who wants a sponge really?? It’s like getting a grape instead of a chocolate in a calendar lol xx

      • I know. It’s so worth the £15 it cost☺ Haha I don’t think they will. Great comparison😂 It’s true though. It’s hard to get excited by a sponge. Have a look at Look Fantastic’s site. Their calendar sold out super quick xx

  4. That red sparkly nail polish is just PERFECT! I hope you wear it for Christmas. 🙂
    So sad the Tanya Burr was only 12 days – it was outstanding and great value.
    OMG I can’t believe the Look Fantastic calendar actually contained a Foreo device! How cute is that little thing! Perfect for travel.
    I can’t believe there are only 12 days till Christmas!

    • I think I will wear it for Christmas. It looks so lovely☺ It was really good. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was.
      I know a Foreo in a calendar. Such a great gift. I was really happy with that☺ It’s scary. I’ve still got so much to do. It’s gone so fast xx

  5. Can’t ever go wrong with eyelash curler, youre so lucky that you have 3 calendars to go through! I love the glittery polishes, the red is perfect for Christmas whereas the silver one could work well for New Years Eve!!! I bet that the vanilla chai gel + lotion smells so delightful (but gel AND lotion? how does that work, just apply as if its lotion or use as shower gel lol) vanilla is my favorite scent when it comes to anything; lotions, candles, air fresheners, perfumes, etc. Thanks for sharing your lovely gifts, hope you enjoy them all!

    xo,JJ

    • I’ve been spoilt this year with three calendars😊 The glitter nail polishes are gorgeous. I so love the red one. Good idea silver would be great for New Years Eve☺ Haha just apply as a lotion. Not sure why gel is in there. Maybe they mean it’s a cooling lotion. I’m not too sure. It smells good though😊 xx
