Benefit Advent Calendar | Candy Coated Countdown

Aloha Sprinklerinos, 

It's less than a month until CHRISTMAS!

I don't know about you but if there's one thing that get's me super excited for the festive season it's advent calendars. And when they come in the form of beauty? Well, it certainly beats a slither of chocolate in my opinion!

When a perfectly presented parcel arrived on my doorstop I almost couldn't stand to open it. 
Just look how lovely it is!

I gave it a good shake (as you do) and I could feel the little pockets of joy rustling inside...
The Benefit Advent Calendar - Candy Coated Countdown. 

AKA. The beauty lovers dream.

Personally, I love the whole beauty product calendar concept. In a nutshell, they contain miniature sizes of the selected beauty brands products. 
Firstly, it's perfect to stock up on travel-sized versions of your favourite products.
But the very best part is that this particular one costs £60, and wait for it!...Everything inside is worth a whopping £109.53!! So you're not only getting a lovely treat every morning in the lead up to Christmas, but also huge value for money.

It's a great treat to yourself, but it also makes for the perfect gift to friends or family.
So, what's inside you say? 
Let me tell you!

**Maximum of 2 per order**
set includes:
1. “that gal” | 7.5ml
2. the POREfessional | 7.5ml
3. benetint | 2.5ml
4. high beam | 2.5ml
5. chachatint | 2.5ml
6. posietint | 2.5ml
7. stay flawless mini
8. they’re real! mini
9. ultra plush in dandelion mini
10. ultra plush lip gloss in A-lister mini
11. ultra plush lip gloss in fauxmance mini
12. BADgal lash mini
13. stay don’t stray in light/medium mini
14. fakeup in 02 medium mini
15. it’s potent! eye cream mini
16. total moisture facial cream mini
17. ooh la lift mini
18. watt’s up! mini
19. beauty sticky notes
20. doodle pad
21. heart-shaped paperclips
22. pinky, polka-dot hair tie
23. elastic hair band with bow charm
24. metallic silvery hair tie
 
Sadly, it's sold out online (everyone had the right idea!) BUT, all hope is not lost my little loves. Benefit have been running giveaways daily on their social channels over the past few weeks, so you could potentially even nab one for free. Merry Christmas, indeed. 
And do keep your eyes peeled, let's hope they'll be back in stock before November is up!
 
What do you think? Does the beauty advent calendar hype tickle your pickle?
 
I'm so excited for next week to come around so I can start opening mine!

Toodlepip!

  11. Eeeeek, advent calendars are so great, and they definitely add just a little more magic into the lead up to Christmas! The Benefit one looks and sounds amazing, but I opted for The Body Shop's offering this year. I just couldn't resist, knowing that the things inside were worth around £85! x

  32. I have brought myself 3 beauty advent calenders this year. One from No.7, One from Technic and a bath one (I would love lush to do a advent calender) I did want to have the Benefit advent calender, but couldn't spend £60 but after reading the list of products, I am in a way glad I did not get it. considering about 6 of the days have only things like paperclips and note papers.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I was really looking forward to getting my hands on this, this year!
    I was slightly taken back by the price of £60, when i could of bought a bunch of presents for that price.
    I was also shocked to learn from our local Benefit counter that people who had bought these advent calendars were actually re-selling them online on ebay for £100+!
    It would be an amazing idea one year to pamper myself and buy one but i don't think that will be for another few years at least.!
    I do look foward to your posts and Vlogmas showing us what you got everyday :)

  57. Agh, I've always wanted an advent calendar! Particularly a chocolate one... I looked at this specific one a few months ago and almost bought it but I read it's not as good as last year and there are repeat products or other things that people were upset about so I skipped on it. :( I hope you're pleased with it!

  61. I've never actually had an advent calendar, though this looks adorable! I thought they were mainly just candies or little cheap toys inside of them. May have to look into getting one like this!

  62. I don't know if I'm more attracted by the advent calendar or the waterglobes featured in the photo's, I have a slight waterglobe addiction x

  79. I've kind of gone off chocolate advent calendars this year (I know, the shock, the horror!) and did eye up the beauty ones, but I have no idea which one to get, and now I think I'm far too late as nearly all of them have sold out, sob! I will be sure to get my name down quickly though for a good one next year!
