Beauty | So far in the Boots Beauty Advent Calendar

So it's 15th December and I'm over half way through the Boots beauty advent calendar, I thought I'd show you what I got in 2 separate posts rather than doing it all in one because it could end up being one big post with 24 windows to open!

The photo isn't in any kind of order I've just arranged them randomly.

Mavala nail polish in shade 53 London RRP £4.30
Seventeen Supreme Shine nail polish RRP £3.99
Orly Bonder Base Coat RRP £5.00
Ghost Fragrance Sample
Paco Robanne BLack XS Fragrance Sample
Juicy Couture LaLa Fragrance Sample
Nina Ricci L'eau Fragrance Sample
Vichy Liftactiv Serum 
Vichy Idealia Life Serum

Boots Nail Shine Solution RRP £4.20
Soap & Glory Clean, Girls body wash RRP £2.50
Rimmel Stay Matte foundation
Balmi Coconut Lip Balm £2.99
Umberto Giannini Hair Tie

So far I'm quite impressed with most of the products I've got but the biggest problem I have with it is that the most things are very difficult to get out of the actual packaging; I've ended up having to use something to flick the things out! So far the products are worth in excess of £22 if bought separately, of course some are small sample sizes but I haven't actually minded the perfume samples because I've found one I really like out of them, Paco Robanne Black XS which I have asked for for Christmas!

In my opinion, the best product so far is the Mavala nail polish, it's a gorgeous red shade which I've worn already and had complements about. The hair tie has to be the worst thing, I'll never wear it and I just think it's ugly!!

The temptation to open them all now is unreal but I'm determined that I'll keep opening them day by day to keep with the festive spirit!

Do you have a beauty advent calendar?



  1. Same problem for me, I use a cuticle stick to get the things out^^ I'm really glad I bought it, I love everything that's in it! I got a mint Balmi in mine :)

  2. It looks like a really lovely selection of products! Really want to try a balmi lip balm, the packaging is so cute! <3

  4. Bloody hell, Jade. I didn't even know Boots had an advent calendar. It actually looks pretty decent. I'm thinking of making my own all year around advent calendar, ha!
