Now that Halloween is well and truly over it’s time to start getting into the festive spirit. I thought I would begin my Christmas posts with advent calendars because, personally, I love the countdown to Christmas. Opening a door each day to a surprising treat is something that I have always loved and got excited about.
First up is Charlotte Tilbury’s The Book Of Makeup Magic (£150) that offers you 12 of Charlotte’s favourite makeup products. The calendar is a mix of mini and full size versions of various different treats, from lipsticks and eyeshadow to creams and masks. It would be a lovely treat if your a Charlotte Tilbury lover like myself.
The Body Shop are like the queen of advent calendars. I actually think this is there fourth or fifth year of doing them. I had mine last year and loved it! I discovered a lot of new favourites including their Eye Definer in Black which I have already brought again twice. The Body Shop’s 24 Happy Days (£60) offers 24 products ranging from the different scents that The Body Shop offer to makeup and tools. It’s a lovely cruelty free treat for someone that is looking for a full 24 day calendar.
There’s nothing better than a classic chocolate advent calendar and being vegan doesn’t deny you of that either. Hotel Chocolat (£12.50) offer an all-dark advent calendar for the countdown to Christmas. The sculptures include reindeers, snowmen, penguins and Christmas trees. And they aren’t the only dairy free advent calendars! Moo Free (£4.99), Holland And Barrett (£3.99) and Sainsbury’s Free From (£2.50) are in on the vegan friendly chocolate countdown too.
Makeup Revolution is a brand that I haven’t yet tried but heard a lot about. This year they have introduced their own Advent Beauty Chest (£85) that features over £100 of Makeup Revolution favourites and is the only advent calendar that countdowns to Christmas Day!
Lastly, my personal favourite, is the Lush Advent Calendar (£49.95). Twelve days of cruelty free Lush products that are all vegan as well. What more could you ask for?!
What one will you be having this year? Have you found any other cruelty free calendars?
