Can’t see a thread so I thought I’d start one. Yes, it’s unbelievably early, but I noticed Glossybox have already revealed their Advent Calendar contents for this year. Saw this reveal on YouTube this morning:

Have to say it doesn’t wow me, but there’s plenty of time and many more Advent Calendars to come, I’m sure! grin

I have incredibly exciting news. For the modest sum of £360 you can have your very own 12 day advent calendar filled exclusively with full size Avant products: beautyadventcalendar.net/avant-12-days-of-beauty-advent-calendar-2021/

Just what we’ve all been waiting for.

I've ordered the temple spa one...judging from last year's. £150 for £225 worth of products.

Wow... just wow. Actually lost for words!

@AprilLady - thank you so much for that link - the opportunity to own 12 Avant products is dream come true (or a nightmare) 😂

I got the jo malone one last year and loved it. Also for as a present for my mum so I wasn't buying her tat she didn't need. Mai ly little perfume bottles that do last a while, some creams snd a voucher for bottle of your choice. Well worth it

Laaaaa Tue 17-Aug-21 08:24:18

I also had Liberty last year but it was a bit too high end for me! I'd never heard of the stuff!

Cohorted would make a good one as their monthly box's are amazing

Not very impressed with the Look Fantastic contents. I don’t remember so many previous products being deluxe minis? Although I guess the price reflects that

It looks like inflation is hitting the advent calendar world this year. Instead of increasing the price like F&M, some of them seem to be reducing the size and/or quality of the items, hoping that we won't notice!

Does anyone know who is doing autumn GWP and when they are? I want to buy the Venn from last year’s Liberty calendar which is so expensive at least it’ll get me to the level of spend!

OchonAgusOchonOh Tue 17-Aug-21 11:05:09

Just had a look through the Feel Unique contents. This has to be product of the year.

Maybe that's what all the people wearing masks on their chins were doing rather than just not wearing them properly...

@OchonAgusOchonOh, grin

The revolve summer beauty bag currently on sale (which is otherwise actually pretty good) goes one better:

Not actually sure how you would practically use this…

😂🤣 Fate worse than death. Avant are trying very hard to convince people it is a high end product. I suppose there must be some people who like Avant but IMO you would be better off spending £20 the Nivea one when it comes.

Atilla, snap! I had a sample of the Venn stuff from Space NK recently and it was lovely.

But no way am I buying it without a decent GWP, not at that price!

Although I have to say that I won't be buying any advent calendar that includes Nars Orgasm blush or This Works sleep spray. So bored of these.

Absolutely. And Eyeko mascara. I didn’t buy one last year. I followed the Liberty reveal thread and bought some of the items that got universal praise on eBay.

The standout success of any beauty advent calendar for me was a tiny tube of Filorga eye cream which I’ve bought ever since. It’s the dogs’ bollocks.

I have that one...it just vanishes wrinkles. It's a little tooty tube of time filler eye cream and it knocks spots off the likes of Trinny Blur.

Amazing, isn’t it? I don’t mind that it’s £40 for 15ml because it’s so incredible. It’s made my lashes longer and thicker too.

LastSummerHere Tue 17-Aug-21 15:49:39

I like quite a lot of Filorga....currently using their Oxygen Peel and really rate it. When I first tried the eye cream, I caught sight of myself in the mirror at work and my immediate thought was, Woooaaahhhh that's crazy....where did my wrinkles go?😆

Blossomtoes Tue 17-Aug-21 15:51:40

Damn you @LastSummerHere! The last thing I need is to hear about more wonderful Filorga products! 😉

LastSummerHere Tue 17-Aug-21 16:02:53

😂🤣 I'm so sorry Blossom....see it as the gift of beauty from me to you.😆 I chose it as my favourite brand in Feel Unique so I can get the small discount. I'm keeping my eyes peeled to see if it shows up in any calendars this year.

Blossomtoes Tue 17-Aug-21 16:13:28

I didn’t know you could do that with Feelunique. Thank you for that, it’s greatly appreciated.

AprilLady Tue 17-Aug-21 16:25:36

If you like Filorga, you may be tempted by this:

www.skinstore.com/beauty-box/skinstore-x-filorga-limited-edition-collection-worth-170/12869440.html

Skinstore are owned by the Hut Group, and the price includes customs duties and (depending on total spend) all delivery charges too.

LastSummerHere Tue 17-Aug-21 16:30:19

That looks fantastic AprilLady thank you...I've used SkinStore in the past with no problems or charges or anything.

Space NK contents:

Easily the best so far!
