Debenhams Beauty Advent Calendar


If you’re in the market for a truly luxurious beauty advent calendar then you need to take a look at the offering from Debenhams.

Containing products worth over £190, the 24 Days of Beauty Treats Calendar is packed full of high end brands and luxury products to dazzle and delight.

I’ve yet to come across a calendar which contains so many luxury brands, for such a relatively low price.




As with all my calendar review, I won’t reveal all of the products or brands in the body of my post, rather I’ll pop a complete list at the end of the post so if you want to avoid any spoilers, don’t scroll all the way to the very bottom.

I will say however, that the calendar contains products from the likes of M.A.C, Clinique, Elemis, NARS, Benefit and Clarins to name but a few.

See what I mean, this calendar has some really high quality products hidden within!

The calendar itself is presented within a large, sleek black box with a black and gold sleeve detailing and teasing the brands contained within.




Remove the sleeve and open the box like a book to reveal 24 boxes of varying sizes and shapes in a array of chic, feminine festive colours.

When diving into the calendar, one of the first boxes I opened contained the deliciously scented Ciate Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer.

This fragrant, hydrating and pore refining primer instantly refreshes and nourishes your skin prior to makeup application.




Delicately watermelon scented, this water based serum primer grips onto your foundation for long lasting wear.

Suitable for all skin types, the lightweight primer has been formulated with witch hazel extract, niacinamide, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid to smooth, perfect an prime to perfection.

My next discovery was the NARS Orgasm Blusher.

This iconic, best selling blush features a soft, peachy pink hue with delicate golden shimmer to create the illusion of beautifully flushed cheeks.




Silky and with a luxurious, buildable sheer texture this universally flattering blush should be a staple in everyone’s makeup bag.

The next treat I found is a firm favourite of mine, the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil. Rich, decadent and silky smooth this aromatic shower oil transforms from a nourishing oil in to a gentle cleansing milk upon contact with water.

Turn your bathroom into a deeply comforting bathing experience and wrap yourself in the warm hug of sweet, soft almonds with this best selling shower product.





Compliment your relaxing bathing ritual with the addition of the Parks Orange, Cedarwood and Clove scented candle.

This aromatic candle combines notes of sweet and zesty oranges smoothed by a full-bodied blend of warm spicy cloves and rich cedarwood.

Sit back and breathe in the luxurious, noticeably festive scent of the candle and feel yourself being transported into as winter wonderland in an instant!




Before I got a bit too excited and tore into the entire calendar I was also delighted to find the Elemis Superfood Facial Wash.

This nourishing, nutrient rich cleanser is packed with Supergreens and an active prebiotic to leave your skin looking radiant and feeling comfortable.

Voted "Best Cleanser" in the Women's Health Beauty Awards 2018 it has been formulated with Avocado, Broccoli and Pumpkin Seed oils to help balance the skin’s microbiome while Wheatgrass, Kale, and Nettle combine to leave your complexion looking luminous, bright and radiant.




As mentioned at the start of this post, you can probably see why the calendar is worth over £190 but lucky for you, you’ll only be paying a fraction of the price.

In fact, how much you pay for it is entirely up to you.

You can purchase the Debenhams 24 Days of Beauty Treats calendar for £90, however if you buy any beauty, fragrance or skincare product you can get your hands on the calendar for just £45.

How incredible is that!

Official Friends 2019 Advent Calendar


SO NO ONE TOLD YOU LIFE WAS GONNA BE THIS WAY

I’m just one of millions of Friends fans.

I grew up watching this TV show and it is so deeply set within my psyche that I’m pretty sure I could come up with a Friends quote for almost any given situation in daily life, but don't quote me on that...

I’m sure you can imagine my sheer delight then when I discovered that this year there was a Friends Advent Calendar.




OH.MY.GOOOOODDDD.

The sitcom recently celebrated its 25th birthday anniversary and despite ending over a decade ago WHY GOD WHY!? its still as popular as ever.

To be honest, I really didn’t even care what was in the calendar, I just knew that if there was one, I needed it.




And so, without hesitation, I headed to Small Stuff Accessories online, parted with 18 of my Great British Pounds and instantly bought it. 

3 days later it arrived.

Could I BE any more excited!




HOW YOU DOIN’ I uttered as I unboxed it from its packaging.

So, the Official Friends 2019 Advent Calendar is not a chocolate calendar. It’s not a beauty calendar. It’s a brand new type of calendar altogether.

You’ll be BAMBOOZLED to find out it is in fact a jewellery calendar!




THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION!

The calendar itself contains a T-bar charm bracelet, five bag charms, four pin badges and 15 hanging charms.

Referencing a host of favourite motifs and characters throughout the series such as Marcel the monkey, Phoebes Guitar and catchphrases including Phoebe's famous HE’S HER LOBSTER, it is the ultimate gift or collectable for any Friends fan.





I KNOW! It’s fabulous isn’t it!

Now, given that it’s priced at £18 you have to expect that the pieces aren’t going to be super high quality, but to be perfectly honest, who cares.

I just adore the PIVOT! Sofa, the Christmas turkey with sunglasses and of course the slice of pizza charms because well know that JOEY DOESN’T SHARE FOOD!




The Iconic Central Perk pin badge is equally cute, as is the you are my lobster bag charm.

ISN’T THAT JUST KICK YOU IN THE CROTCH SPIT ON YOUR NECK FANTASTIC!

I was a smidge disappointed not to see the inclusion of any kind of Smelly Cat or Dinosaur reference given Phoebe’s Iconic song and Ross’ much joked-about career, perhaps the creators were ON A BREAK and overlooked this one.




Then again, it could just be a Moo point. YOU KNOW, LIKE A COW’S OPINION. IT JUST DOESN’T MATTER. IT’S MOO.

Ok I’m done.  IT’S LIKE THE END OF AN ERA. Or at least, the end of this post.




I got hold of my Friends Advent Calendar from Small Stuff Accessories who have a host of fabulous, chocolate and plastic-tat free calendars designed to dazzle and delight!

So yeah, run dont walk to Small Stuff Accessories to get hold of your calendar now and for every day of advent, Friends will BE THERE FOR YOU TOO.
