The 12 days of @LizEarle Advent calendar | #Blogtober day 19


 So, with a few birthday's coming up before Christmas I thought it would be a nice idea to treat some of my loved ones and fellow beauty and pampering enthusiasts with some beauty advent calendars. For the past few years I've had thoughts about buying beauty advent calendars but never really got round to it because I thought that some of them were a waste of money. I'd read a lot of fellow blogger reviews on the calendars and I decided not to bother.

This year, however, I have had a change of tune. There may be some dodgy beauty advent calendars out there but I've noticed over the past few weeks that there's some pretty amazing ones out there right now too. 

Obviously it was the amazing ones that I was interested in and did some research online. The one that really impressed me was the 12 Days Of Liz Earle advent calendar. First of all, who doesn't love Liz Earle? (Plus, I had my eye on some Liz Earle products on my birthday wish list) I thought, whilst I was ordering some different ones for loved ones, and the fact that my birthday is coming up on the 5th of November, I decided that I would throw caution to the wind and snap one up for myself. 

Was it worth the £80.00 price tag? here's what I think....
I was so excited when I received this. I actually thought that all the calendars would be sold out by the time that I tried to order them but luckily they were still in stock. First of all, the box was so beautifully designed. I love the colours and the gold, shiny lettering. Another thing you'll notice if you pick up this calendar is the gorgeous scents that come at you, not overpowering, just subtle and enough to tell you that there's some gorgeously scented skincare goodies inside.
 I was already bowled over with the outer design of the box but when I opened it, I was even more obsessed with the cute boxes, even more gorgeous scents flowing out and I just love how cleverly designed it all is. The boxes all fit together like a puzzle. 
 I didn't want to be too naughty and open everything (I'm trying to be good and wait till December lol, it does tell you what's inside the boxes at the back of the outer box)) so I had a little peek and opened one of the boxes and one of the little treats is the Liz Earle Deep Cleansing Mask with a little Deep Cleansing Mask Sponge. Both the mask and the sponge were in the same box (You know how some brands would probably be a bit tight and have them separate, not the case with Liz Earle).

 Want to know what else is inside?

 These are all the amazing products you can find inside. The font is really tiny so being the lamb that I am (lol) I've made a list for you, here's what you'll find in those pretty boxes:

- Cleanse and polish hot cloth cleanser (30 ml) 1 pure cotton cloth included.
- Instant boost skin tonic (50 ml) 
- Skin repair moisturiser (15 ml)
- Gentle face exfoliator (15 ml)
- Eyebright soothing eye lotion (50 ml)
- Deep cleansing mask (15 ml) 1 sponge included.
- Superskin concentrate for night (10 ml)
- Superskin superlip balm (15 ml)
- Botanical shine shampoo (50 ml)
- Botanical shine conditioner (50 ml)
- Nourishing botanical body cream (50 ml)
- Orange flower hand repair (50 ml) 

In my opinion, I think I struck gold with this being my first beauty advent calendar. there's no disappointments and I'm so impressed with all these products. You have everything there for the ultimate pampering routine. I love that this calendar has also introduced me to products that I haven't tried before.

This would make a fantastic gift for men and women. It's great for introducing friends and loved ones to Liz Earle and giving them a chance to try out the products and see which ones they like. 

I'm so happy that I purchased this. When Christmas is over and I've used all the products, I'll be keeping this beautiful box as a pretty storage box to keep on my dressing table. 

I purchased my Liz Earle calendar at Boots for £80.00. You can also find this beautiful calendar for the same retail price of £80.00 at: 


Look out for this gorgeous calendar popping up in my Christmas gift guide which goes live on the 1st of November (my birthday week, yay!) and I'll also be giving one of these beautiful calendars away to one of my lucky followers so keep your eyes peeled for that.
