Marks and Spencer Advent Beauty Calendar 2018

Happy November my dear readers. While the month itself usually greets us with terrible cold, rain and whatnots, Marks & Spencer decided to sweeten the deal and drop their incredible Beauty Advent Calendar 2018 today. 

And if you’re in Birmingham, there are few more treats awaiting you this lunchtime! Yes that’s right, not only is it Friday eve but this lunchtime from 1pm you can treat yourself to some bubbly, listen to various brands representatives and even shop a little while you at it in their Birmingham High Street branch. There will be peeps from Alpha H, Filorga UK and many more if you have any makeup or skincare related questions. Tickets are only £5 and redeemable against purchase! The deal stayed the same - spend £35 in store across beauty, clothing and home and you can grab this beauty up for £35 too. That’s over £250 worth of makeup and skincare!!! Fancy knowing what awaits inside? 

Marks & Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar 2018 graces us with a maaaasive box filled with advent treats that won’t break your pre-Christmas diet. For £35 you are getting 25 boxes - one for each day of Advent and Christmas Day! How better to get you in the mood for Christmas then by a beauty treat each day? Worth a whopping £250+ it features brands like Pixi Beauty, Filorga, L’Occitane, REN, This Works and oh so many more including some of the M&S own brands such as Autograph and Absolute! 

It broke my heart to open each box to get this all photographed for you but I knew from the bottom of my heart that you will want to see what’s hidden inside! With many full-size and almost full-size/half-size treats, it’s such great value for money as it allows you to explore brands and products before commuting to full size. So brace yourself for the journey, it will be smooth sailing ladies and gentlemen! Now the time comes to reveal it all. If you’re here to simply check when it launches - close your eyes as spoilers are coming!!!

Marks and Spencer Advent Beauty Calendar 2018

All treats are packed in the individual colourful boxes - it’s such a pretty sight! I literally can’t wait to open one each day - advent calendars make me really happy! If I had to be very picky, I’d probably swap a few products like a nail file which I find in every single advent calendar - yes it’s useful but also a little boring. In regards of skincare - as usual, you’ll find yourself with a full routine! Fabulous Pixi Rose Tonic, Filorga Time-Filler Eyes, Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream, Philip Kingsley Elasticizer, This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and In Transit 3-in-1 primer already are my favourite so I’m happy to get some backups! I’m super excited to try Percy & Reed, the M&S exclusive lip balm from Skyn Iceland, more of The Hero Project, Balance Me and REN to mention just a few. I also already had a teeny tiny play with Studio 10 lipgloss - looooove, Leighton Denny beautiful nail polish - as seen on my recent red lip Instagram post here and the Shay & Blue Black Tulip perfume which blew me away! 

Not sure if my box had a little print mishap given it was gifted, but at the back, it mentions not 25 but 26 products. As the box itself holds 25, I’m sure it’s just a little error in print. I thought I’ll mention it anyway so you’re not disappointed not to find PÜR Afterglow Skin-Perfecting Powder highlighter inside. 

Other than that, as usual Marks & Spencer Advent Beauty Calendar 2018, as usual, exceeded my expectations and I hope it’ll bring as much joy to you as it did me! I’ll be stopping by the event in M&S Birmingham High Street so if you see me - don’t hesitate to stop by for a little chat! If you are unable to attend or simply don't have M&S close enough to pop in-store, you can go online and grab your Beauty Advent Calendar 2018 now! Hurry, before it sells out! Buy here.
