Yes, it is that time of the year again! Despite it only being September the shops are already stocking Christmas goodies.
I wanted to write this blog post after my husband ordered me a new advent calender for the forthcoming festive season. He ordered me the Yankee Candle calender, so with that in mind I thought I would put together a post letting you know all about some of the calenders on the market.
First up is the one my hubby ordered me: This is the Yankee Candle 2015 Advent Calender House.
This calender is around the £35 price mark but hubby managed to get it for £25.65. This calender contains tea lights in some amazing festive scents including Candy Cane Lane, Winter Glow, Snowflake Cookie, Icicles, Bundle Up and Spiced Orange. I love candles and burn them every evening so this is a great calender for anyone who loves their home fragrances.
Next up is this nail polish calender by Ciate. I have enjoyed Ciate polishes for a while, they do some gorgeous nudes and glitters. The company has released an advent calender for several years now and they have pulled out all the stops for 2015.
The Ciate 2015 calender costs £49 and comes with lots of mini polishes including products from their Olivia Palermo X Ciate collection.
This Jo Malone calender is very pricey, I gasped at the £260 price tag!
It contains mini fragrances and body lotions. I haven't owned a Jo Malone fragrance before but from reading other people's blogs the scents linger on the skin for a long time.
So if you are a huge Jo Malone fan perhaps this would be worth the price tag. The calender will be available from Harrods from October and in other stores across the country from November.
Another fav among bloggers are the Body Shop advent calenders. This year The Body Shop has apparently created two calenders to suit every budget. How thoughtful of them. I believe the calenders will cost £60 and £80. The calenders will contain mini versions of some of their popular products including makeup, scents and skin care. The calender will be on sale from October.
This is an exciting calender for 2015. Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has released an advent calender called The Book of MakeUp Magic for £150. It contains a mixture of full size and mini size products. The calender will be available from Charlotte Tilbury's website, Selfridges and Brown Thomas.
Benefit has brought out beauty advent calenders for several years now. This year the brand will be releasing a 12 door calender for £34.50 called Party Poppers. The company will feature some of its best loved beauty goodies in its calender. The calender will be on sale from Debenhams and Benefit from mid October and nationwide from November.
How festive does this advent calender by L'Occitane look. This year the brand will feature 24 mini products behind the calender doors. There will be minis of their skincare, haircare and body goodies. This calender will be on sale from L'Occitane boutiques and online from October 21.
Last year I had the Selfridges Beauty Advent Calender and looking at the 2015's offering the products don't look any different. For £95 you get minis of several high end brands inclyding Kielh's, Lancome and YSL. The calender will be on sale from Selfridges from mid October.
I am sorry for mentioning the C Word early but we all know these calenders sell out fast. So here is just a little heads up.
