As you all probably know by now, I blooming LOVE Christmas, if you was to cut me in half, I would probably have the word Festive running straight through me. It’s the time of year, I just can’t help but feel happy and content. As well as Christmas, I also blooming LOVE an Advent Calendar. I think the child in me still loves the surprise element behind each door. Although I still can’t quite believe it is time for Advent Calendar’s already, I can’t wait to share this one with you.
I am super lucky that my mum bought me this Enchanted Advent Calendar from The Body Shop as my Christmas present. I can always rely on her to help me out with my beauty needs and I just love her for it! ❤
Firstly, the packaging of this is absolutely b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. Out of all The Body Shop calendars I have been lucky to have received for Christmas, this is definitely the prettiest. I will totally be keeping all of the boxes for something after, I just don’t know what yet! The layout of this calendar is the same as previous years from The Body Shop, I think they have found a system and it definitely works.
Below is what I have opened so far, so if you don’t want to know what is in boxes 1 -4, don’t scroll down! ★
Day 1 – Peppermint Candy Cane Shower Gel / Day 2 – Mango Body Butter
I couldn’t be more pleased with box 1. I absolutely love the smell of mint and this smells exactly like a Candy Cane. It has a slightly softer mint scent to it, so it isn’t too overpowering but smells good enough to eat. I love body butter and Mango is normally one of the scents I go for too. It reminds me of sitting on holiday with a cocktail in hand, although that feels a million miles away from the weather right now.
Day 3 – White Musk Body Lotion / Day 4 – Nail File
I really don’t mind the smell of Musk, although it does depend what kind of mood I am in. Sometimes I like it and others I can’t stand it. It’s a bit of a funny one for me, although it will definitely get used on the days where I am loving Musk. I always think nail files in an Advent are a bit of a cop out. Obviously I will use it, but it’s not a very exciting box sadly!
I really like the selection of products so far, apart from the boring nail file ha. At least I got it out of the way early though, my favourite so far is definitely the Peppermint shower gel. ❤
