[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] So far, SO the best … if you’re an Elemis fan, their advent offering this year is sumptuous. I’m so impressed with the presentation – no wonky drawers, no buckling or bending, sturdy and tasteful as well as being extremely good value. It just feels like such a quality thing – and, although I’m sure it doesn’t need pointing out, can be used next year, the year after and so on.
There’s quite a hot trade on eBay for empty brand advent calendars (especially Liberty) and I like the idea that they don’t just go in the recycling or bin at the end of December. This one isn’t so heavily branded that a few well-placed santa stickers can’t cover up evidence.
The contents are great – I’ve been through all the drawers and there isn’t really one ‘duff’ gift – possibly the single sachet of eye masks in drawer 7 could have been more generous but overall, each item is a discovery, a useful addition or a luxury.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
I was happy to see plenty of Monoi in there and a full size tub of Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
I always add the full contents list at the end just in case anyone is quite rightly gifting-to-self and actually still wants a surprise! So, don’t read on if that’s the case. Needless to say, it’s pricy (you may want to wait til Black Friday but there are no guarantees it will still be around by then – if it’s your top option, bite the bullet, otherwise, hang on..) at £175 but the value is almost £404 so even without the advent aspect, it’s amazing value just for anyone that uses this brand day to day.
