Countdown to Christmas: The Body Shop Advent Calendar

The countdown is on: 24 Days till Christmas! When I was a kid the first day of December meant a new Advent calendar filled with my favourite thing at the time: chocolate. I’m thrilled that there’s now Advent Calendars made for my other love: makeup and beauty. This year, the calendar that caught my attention is the Body Shop Advent Calendar: 24 Days of Joy*.

How can you not feel happy when you see a box like this?

I am not good with surprises, and when I first got this, I was immediately tempted to open all the windows to see what was inside. I was a good beauty blogger and patiently waited till December 1st. And that my friends is today.  Woot woot!

Behind window #1 is….

Strawberry Shower Gel, a long-time favourite of mine. Yay!  The calendar features 24 of the Body Shop’s most popular products so I’m pumped about the next 23 days.

Priced at $75 in Canada (with a value of approx. $135), the Advent Calendars can be found in store only. I have a feeling that if they are not sold out already, they will be. I heard they sold like hotcakes in the UK.  And, if you want to know what’s in rest of the windows, check out British Beauty Blogger’s post here.  I won’t be looking…well, at least that’s the plan.

How is it the Christmas season already? Where did the year go?

    Oooo these are so much fun!!! They have apparently sold out in the UK so I wonder how long they’ll be available for here. I wouldn’t personally splurge on this, maybe next year my daughter will be more of a girly girl and we might share if they make another. I do want their ginger scented line so I guess that’ll be my TBS holiday treat this time around. :)

    I wonder as well Icaria! I love the ginger scented line too – I may to ask Santa for some of that ;-)
