Clarins Festive Surprises Advent Calendar for Holiday 2018

Clarins Festive Surprises Advent Calendar ($60) returns for Holiday 2018 with festive beauty surprises to count down each if the twelve days until Christmas. I reviewed the Clarins Beauty Delights Advent Calendar from Holiday 2016 and I thought it was adorable!

The best part about the calendar is it comes with one of very favorite products from Clarins, Beauty Flash Balm! Not to mention it’s also full-size! I use it as a lightweight moisturizer, makeup primer, and all around hydrator!

What I’m really liking about this year’s advent calendar is the fact it comes in a collectible jewelry box with 12 little drawers for storing your treasures. Sadly, the Beauty Delights Advent Calendar was disposable! At least this year, once the samples are gone, you can reuse the box they come in!

Want some spoilers?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Happy Monday Muse! Since we’re both have dry skin and struggle with a lot of the same issues associated with it, I was wondering if you would give a tip on the beauty flash balm. I have it and have tried it but I’ve ever only used it in conjunction with other products and I think I’m doing it wrong. I notice you said it works as a lightweight moisturizer for you. Is that year round? Or just in the hot months when we tend to be a little more oily? And do you use it with sunscreen? Any tips will be most appreciated!

      Happy Monday! I typically use it to prime! After my moisturizer, before my makeup! However, in the Summer when I’m a bit more oily I use it as my moisturizer! I use SPF with it as it doesn’t contain any!
