Beauty At Tesco Advent Calender

Hows everyone been enjoying this fine Monday?

Today, i'm looking back over all the goodies from the Beauty at Tesco Advent Calender! The Calender had a selling price of £50, but I picked mine up a few days into December at half price! Mainly because I forgot to buy it before the month started.... But it worked out even better for me that way. :p

The first thing to say about this calender? It's a beaut. I mean, it looked pretty in the pictures Tesco posted online, but when I finally had my paws on it? It is absolutely gorgeous!

I wasn't expecting it to come with it's own matching bag! I didn't pay enough attention to the pictures of the product on the website, whoops! Tesco have seriously out done themselves on the packaging alone. The entire thing, complete with the pretty bag, looks and feels really luxurious. So much so, that I almost didn't want to ruin it by opening the doors... Almost.

So now all doors are open, lets have a peep at what's inside!

:: The Hits ::
Tanya Burr Nail Polish, Nip+Fab Viper Venom Eye Cream, So Eco Foundation Brush, Ghost, Vaseline Lip Therapy Tin
I was so excited to find the Nip+Fab Viper Venom eye cream behind door number 10, as I have awful dark circles under my eyes and I did want to try this anyway. I don't know what it is, but I absolutely go crazy for teeny tiny bottles of perfume, so the mini ghost behind door number 17 made me really happy. I'm also really looking forward to trying the Tanya Burr Polish,  and extra brushes and Vaseline for winter will always be a good call.

:: The Misses ::
Eylure False Lashes, Tesco Compact Mirror
I never use false eyelashes, so I really wasn't fussed about having these in the calender. Maybe I'll give them a go to see what all the fuss is about. The mirror was also a bit of a miss, as well... Everything else seems to be of such a high quality, this is a bit of a let down.

Overall, would I be interested in buying next years beauty calender from Tesco? Yes. Yes I would. Although it'll be interesting to see how they improve on the packaging! It's flawless already so the design team have a tough act to follow. As for the products inside? There was a great mix from all the different brands the beauty department carry, so it'll be interesting to see what there is in store for next year.

Catch up with me;


  1. This is my kind of Advent Calender! ^ ^
