And I'm so tempted to open it tomorrow.

I went for the look fantastic one in the end, it's massive & so heavy.
I just hope there's not a load of old tat in it.

Anyone else got there's yet?

My son ordered the Liberty one for me. It came on Friday
I have also bought the Bare Minerals one for my DIL

Am debating about the Jo Malone one. It's expensive, but looks gorgeous. It's released at midnight tonight

Looks like they are all selling out pretty quickly as well

I got the No7 one, it's upstairs in my Xmas cupboard. Can't wait!

I have dropped a few hints about the Jo Malone one. Totally worth the money, imo grin

DH has just waltzed in whistling 'it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas' and presented me with the Liberty one 😍😍😍
Tis a thing of beauty but I shall not peak until 01st December.

Oh the Liberty one looks gorgeous and really good value.

Oh wicks your husband sounds perfect! Can I have him? wink

And now I'm totally mortified as I've just noticed my grammatical error!

I was coming on to say that John Lewis have a few Jo Malone gifts that look good value.

I got the liberty one "from the kids" and jo malone one from DH. Feeling rather festive now. thlgrin

My Look Fantastic calendar arrived on Friday. I agree, it is HUGE! I decided against the Liberty one, despite checking the website from midnight on the 26th. I'm going to try for am M&S and treat myself to a Diptyque candle or gift set instead.

I did find a list of the LF contents, Pippin. It looks good.

Is anyone actually keeping them until December. I was thinking of opening one through November and the other through December.

I'll send him over Tanaqui, for I have my liberty advent calendar now 😬

MountainDweller Mon 31-Oct-16 23:23:40

Yes I got my Look Fantanstic one a couple of days ago - couldn't believe how heavy it was! I have the L'occitane one too and was thinking about opening it in November as well!

Would love an m&s one but I'm not in the uk. Or a selfridges one, or most of all a jo Malone one!

I think I have a problem blushblushblushblushblushblush

I have a You Beauty and have a Look Fantastic for DD. Both similar cost and size so hopefully we'll be able to swap any bits that don't suit. I'm tempted by Jo Malone but, for that price, think i'd sooner have some good candles or full size stuff

Jo Malone one released at midnight
Already sold out online

I have a M&S chocolate advent calendar with Father Christmas in if that counts! wink

OverScentedFanjo Tue 01-Nov-16 13:39:21

I wanted the no7 one, but it's sold out every where.

Having not even thought of an advent beauty calendar until I read the threads here on S&B , and then being cross that I had probably missed out ( and really couldnt affford one anyway ) I was thrilled to have walked into TKMaxx today and got (presumedly last years, but pristine ) Ciate calandar for £17.99!! grin

Hooray ! Laska can go to the door-opening ball!! I may try to get the M&S one also though Jo Malone would have been better , if could have afforded it ..
