I hope you’re all having a good week – mine is going slow but fast at the same time..a very odd feeling. The time has come to reveal the little advent treats that I’ve been unboxing from my Body Shop Advent Calendar! This advent calendar is one I’ve wanted to try since last year – last year I had the Ciaté one and thoroughly enjoyed expanding my nail polish collection!
This year the calendar I’ve gone for is slightly more expensive but I know the value of the products is way over the price paid- AND I went to buy it on a day where the Body Shop were offering 30% off for loyalty card holders (which luckily, I am one of) :D. After you take off the 30% it actually makes this advent calendar a similar price to the Ciaté one I had last year.
So, here is the advent calendar – yes it’s made from cardboard, but they’ve made it into a beautiful christmassy green double door box with little advent boxes inside.
I love the design of this because it’s traditionally Christmas, but it has a great well thought out layout on the inside 🙂
Now, I have already (by this point) opened THREE of the little teeny green boxes, but what I want to know is how you want me to blog about them!
I plan to do posts showing you around 2 at a time so I can actually explain my thoughts on the products that I get. Would you like that way of showing you the products? I’d love to know your thoughts – I could do a mega haul each week if you’d prefer!
For now, I will show you the product I got in NUMBER ONE of my advent calendar.
It wasn’t a show stopper but a nice product all round – it’s probably one that I’ll give to someone as a little present simply because the scent isn’t to my taste.
This is a Frosted Cranberry Shimmer Lotion which kinda sounds like the kind of thing I’d have wanted around 10 years ago! A shimmer lotion seems like a bit of a backwards step in beauty – back to the 90’s.
If this was in the advent calendar in a different scent I’d probably have been all over it. Now having been away at the weekend on a night out, the smell of this actually made me gag a little bit. The reason for that is I got the overwhelming smell of ALCOHOL. I’m not even sure where that came from as I didn’t even drink anything with cranbizzle in it :’)…weird.
Saying that, this hasn’t put me off the products in the advent calendar – I know that there’ll be loads of stuff that I like in here as I get through the little boxes! They have little quips on them too and questions to get you excited for opening them.
I’m excited to open more of these as we go through December – a beauty advent calendar is a great way of getting you excited for Christmas!!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this, I’ve definitely enjoyed writing it…
Let me know if you have a preference of how I post these little advent treats!

Thanks for reading guys!
