I am super super super excited to share with you this post today!!! If you regularly follow my blog you will know that yesterday i posted a review of one of the two advent calendars that i purchased this year. For today’s blog post i am doing the last of the two that i brought. I left my favourite of the two and saved the best for last, and as you can see from the title this year i had to buy again the Look Fantastic Beauty Christmas Advent for 2017. Last year was the first time ever that i brought a beauty advent calendar and I chose the Look Fantastic one. It was so so amazing it fully converted me to buy the beauty ones instead of chocolate ones and for me there was no hard choice between the calendars available… i knew i wanted to get the 2017 Look Fantastic one since last December and like last year it was absolutely perfect!
LookFantastic Calendar Details
Before i get into any details about the product i wanted to talk about how gorgeous and stunning the box packaging is! This is the prettiest advent calendar i have ever seen and Look Fantastic must of put alot of thought and effort into creating such a beautiful box. I love that it is designed like a vanity drawer set, reusable drawers to put all of your makeup and skincare bits in and a gorgeous flap on the top that opens up and displays a mirror. There is nothing else that this needs! I was so wowed when it came and the smile on my face must of been stuck there for ages after seeing the box. It has taken pride of place on my dressing table now and i love that i can use it everyday! This is what Lookfantastic wrote on their website about using the calendar afterwards, “When the countdown to Christmas is over, the beautiful case, complete with looking glass, can be used as a vanity unit to store your beloved beauty treats and essentials.”
I can definitely see why it is called ‘Beauty In Wonderland.’ From my opinion Look Fantastic have taken inspiration from Alice in Wonderland and added their own twist with mirrors and makeup brushes and perfume on the design. Each of the products were individually wrapped in pretty tissue paper that had things like ‘Swatch Me’, ‘Use Me’, ‘Lather Me’, ‘Apply Me’ and ‘Smell Me’ printed on it. On the back of the box was another Poem (like there was on last years) that was festive and fun and excited me to start opening up the days! This is why the Look Fantastic Advent Calendar is always a favourite of mine because it’s little extra details like this, that make it more unique than any other beauty calendars and again it’s the effort and thought they have put into it for us all to enjoy. The packaging alone was one of the best things about this calendar and even more worth the money! Below are pictures of the drawers and the boxes to be opened…
The LookFantastic Beauty Advent Calendar has contents that are worth a huge £300! For only £79. It was on sale on the 10th of October and luckily that was bang on my payday so i was very lucky! However it was a struggle to not open something up for nearly two months when it arrived that is so exciting and incredible and have to wait until December the 1st to start. There were 25 days to open like last time and they were all boxed up and wrapped in pretty drawers. There are 9 full-sized products and 16 deluxe samples. Apparently 19 of these were exclusive to Lookfantastic…Which is obviously amazing! They never tell you what is inside which is what i love as sometimes it’s abit too easy to have a look at all the content list that it’s not really a full surprise anymore. The calendar contained a lovely variety of skincare, makeup and hair products and i was so so impressed with the brands and treats inside, there was also some exciting beauty/brand discoveries too for me.

This beauty advent calendar is by far the best on the market for me. I can see myself buying this one EVERY SINGLE YEAR! I am obsessed with Lookfantastic and love the products that they bring out…I am hoping that they do another Beauty Egg Collection around Easter time like they did last year that i sadly missed out on 😦 The products and sizes of this calendar are incredible. For £79 it is a bargain. The amount of full size products included was amazing, well worth the money. I loved that again on the 25th day they gave us a wonderful full size set and it felt like a Christmas present opening that one up as it retails for £20. I really tried thinking long and hard about any negatives i could find with this but i honestly hand on heart couldn’t find any…it was the perfect way to countdown Christmas and if you love beauty and skincare and all things surprising i really recommend you buying this one next year if you haven’t done before. I can only imagine this beauty calendar will get even better every year (I don’t know how it could but Lookfantastic always surprise!) To sum this calendar up in one word it would just have to be WOW!
If you received this calendar i would love to know what you thought about it too 🙂 I really hope you enjoyed opening it up as much as i did! If you received any other beauty calendar i would love to know as i am always interested in other people’s choices. Thank you for reading and i hope that you loved my two beauty calendar unboxing/reviews that i finally got to share with you all. See you all for another blog post next week when it is officially 2018!!! Wow can’t believe i’m writing that already.
