QVC Beauty Christmas Advent Calendar ($79.96) brings me back to my childhood. Recently, I was stalking Instagram and a friend of mine posted an image of an empty advent calendar. You could see smudges of chocolate inside each of the tiny openings where her kids had popped open every single day of the month. I think we have all been guilty of doing that at some point in our lives.
It was just too tempting to have 25 delicious chocolate sitting inside a calendar and expecting us to eat just one each day. Ugh! Such a tease!
Advent Calendars have evolved since I was a child and more recently they have become an important part of our beauty lives. With origins within the UK, the beauty or makeup advent calendar started gaining popularity with brands like Clarins creating gorgeous little beauty filled calendar to countdown the days to Christmas. More recently the Body Shop, Benefit, Tarte, and other brands have launched their own Christmas Countdown Calendars right here in the US.
But one of the nicest and the largest (largest content wise that is) I’ve come across was the QVC Beauty Christmas Advent Calendar.
QVC Beauty Christmas Advent Calendar comes housed in heavy, sturdy red box with snowflakes decorating the entire inside and outside of the box. A gold clasp holds the box closed and once flipped open this splits into two haves with 12 little pop out windows on each side. It’s a truly beautiful presentation plus it stands up by itself so you can pop it on your mantel or vanity. If you want you can even refill it for next year with little surprises. You can also remove the plastic inserts and use the box as a little place to store treasures or makeup but be careful when you’re pulling the plastic out because you can rip the backing of the cardboard. Just wriggle it gently out and you’ll have a nice little box for storing bits and bobs inside.
This is a nice calendar because it isn’t centered around one specific brand! It contains a variety of beauty, skincare, and makeup from a ton of different brands like It Cosmetics, Josie Maran, Bliss, Bare Minerals, etc…
There were so many products inside here that I’ve been wanting to try for myself but haven’t yet indulged in. And now I have a bunch of generous deluxe sizes to try out! This also has a ton of my favorite items like It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer, Kat Somerville Exfolikate, Josie Maran Argan Oil, and more!
It’s such a nice way to replenish some of your fav items or get some of your favs in travel size. It’s also a nice way to finally try some items from your wish list!
Such a great little advent calendar!
It sadly sold out on qvc.com.
But if it does come back in stock I’ll be sure to let you know!
Did anyone grab it when it did go on sale?
