I unboxed the Body Shop’s advent calendar

‘Tis the season!

Advent calendars are quickly becoming one of my favourite things about the Christmas season. It’s like a buildup to the main event.


I had a couple going this month but I decided to blog about the Ultimate Advent Calendar I purchased from The Body Shop. I loved the packaging. Each gift came in its own individual box and had a little quote written on the side. I definitely had favourites. I also cheated and opened a few gifts in advanced.


Check out the photos below!  I picked a few of my absolute favourite products from the advent calendar. My top five favourites were the Drops of Youth Concentrate (0.2 oz), the Down to Earth Multi-Tasker Eye Brush, the Oils of Life™ Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil (1 oz), the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask (2.7 oz), and the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream (0.2 oz).



The Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask was the twenty-fourth gift in the advent calendar and my favourite. I love face masks so I was super happy about getting this. It’s very similar to a clay mask. I used the Muslin Cleansing Cloth to wipe it away and my skin felt great afterward. A little moisturizer and I was good to go.



I was happy about the Drops of Youth Serum which was the eleventh gift in the calendar. I have a couple other products in this line but never tried the serum. So far, so good. I love using it first thing in the morning after I use my moisturizer. I can guarantee that my skin is going to be hydrated during the day, especially now that it’s winter.


The twentieth gift of the calendar was the Oils of Life Facial Oil. I’ve been dying to try this for what seems like forever. First thoughts? I don’t think my skin has felt as smooth. Instant favourite.img_0997-copy

I’m excited to try out this new makeup brush. The Multitasking Eye Brush was the seventeenth gift in the calendar. I love that it’s double sided. I don’t wear eyeshadow very often but I know I’ll be using this one for sure.img_0999-copy

I couldn’t wait until Christmas to open it. The Oils of Life Sleeping Mask came with an adorable eye mask too and I’ll be using both over the next few days. If it’s as good as the facial oil then I’m sure I’ll love it.


And that’s a wrap. I definitely got some good gifts in this calendar and I’ll probably get it next Christmas. Thanks for reading! Did you get an awesome advent calendar this year? Tell me in the comment section! Oh, and Happy Holidays!
