Marks and Spencer Advent Calendar 2015

If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen my daily posts from my L'Occitane and Marks and Spencer Advent Calendars.  If you didn't then you are in for a treat because I am going to share all of the contents of the 
Marks and Spencer Advent Calendar with you now and then L'Occitane in its own post too.


Marks and Spencer Advent Calendar 2015

There had been quite a lot of excitement surrounding the Marks and Spencer Advent Calendar and I was one of the lucky one to get it for £25 as I had re-ordered some Philip Kingsley shampoo and conditioner. I was surprised at how heavy the advent calendar was but it is made so well, that my intention is to keep the box and make my own advent calendar for someone in 2016.  

Inside the box are 24 individual numbered boxes and then inside each box was a product that can be found on sale in Marks and Spencer, naturally it is all beauty and there is a wide variety of items to be found.

So as you can see there are some really good products here and this is what I found and when:

Day One - Philip Kingsley Geranium and Neroli Elasticizer 
Day Two - Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
Day Three - Cowshed Grumpy Cow Uplifting Body Lotion
Day Four - Pur Minerals Volume Vixen Mascara
Day Five - Leighton Denny Renovate nail repair cream
Day Six - Rosie for Autograph Nuit Perfume
Day Seven - Rituals Organic Rice Milk and Cherry Blossom Shower Gel
Day Eight - Pure Super Grape Day Cream
Day Nine - Filorga Time Filler Absolute Wrinkle correction cream
Day Ten - Neal's Yard Frankincense Nourishing Cream
Day Eleven - Josh Wood Full Bodied Shampoo
Day Twelve - Diego Dalla Palma Lipstick in shade 46 Antique Rose
Day Thirteen - Mio Skincare Liquid Yoga Restorative Bath Soak
Day Fourteen - Percy and Reed Volumising No Oil, Oil
Day Fifteen - Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Hand and Nail Cream
Day Sixteen - Rodial Dragon's Blood Sculpting Gel
Day Seventeen - Swell Hair Ultimate Volume Mask
Day Eighteen - Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Bar of Soap
Day Nineteen - Autograph Lip Crayon in Nude
Day Twenty - L'Occitane Verbena Shower Gel
Day Twenty One - Pixi Glow Tonic
Day Twenty Two - Ren skincae Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial
Day Twenty Three - Stila Lip Glaze in shade Sugar Plum
Day Twenty Four - Morgan Taylor Nail Polish in shade Pretty Woman

For a very first advent calendar, I actually think Marks and Spencer have smashed it.  Not only was it such great value for money, but there are so many amazing brands and products inside making it well worth the £25 it cost and one to hope for in 2016.

What do you think to this Advent Calendar?

  3. This looks like a fantastic calender! I'd love to get something like this next year :)

  4. I got this too and I have to agree - it was brilliant. The product sizes I thought extremely generous throughout - travel size in most cases, rather than sample. I think brands generally have really upped their game when it comes to these calendars - then again they have to, as there are so many of them now to choose from. Tx

  11. That's pretty cool. An advent calendar with a twist. Something different to just chocolate all the time.

  12. I love this. It's so much more exciting than a piece of chocolate. However, these new deluxe calendars worry me. If they catch on it's yet more expense at Christmas time.
