The Body Shop Advent Calendar 2018 Review

Happy Holidays girlies !! And like anyone else, I am super excited about this holiday season. Though it has all the good things to celebrate, the beauty addict in me is more excited about the Advent Calendars. The holiday kits are one of a kind where the brand segregates a set of products into a kit or launch some limited edition products. How much ever I love the holiday kits, the Advent Calendars are something that I wait for every year. The advent calendars come with the numerous products one for each day which makes every day extra special.

The Body Shop is all set to launch their Advent Calendars this year and they are all super cute to look at. Make sure to sign up for the updates on The Body Shop Advent Calendars page. They will be launched before December and I am super excited. 


The Body Shop guys are kind enough to send their 24 DAYS OF THE ENCHANTED ADVENT CALENDAR to try and share my opinion and I can’t thank them enough. Evidently, the Body Shop is one of my very favorite brands of skincare and their tea tree range is a must have for me. I also love the brand because they don’t test on animals and they are environment-friendly. I have recommended it to all my friends and family, I don’t even remember the count. Everyone loved the body shop and I have some cult products that I absolutely adore. More on that below.

So what are the 24 products that you get in the ENCHANTED ADVENT CALENDAR

Before I get into the details, I would like to say that meeting Olivia, the Owl was a pleasure. Haha, not to get confused but I adore the pink packaging and the box itself was so festive and vibrant.

My Review on the Body Shop 24 Days of the Enchanted Advent Calendar

My favorite products out of the bunch are the Strawberry Shower Gel, Coconut Body Scrub(I love the smell of it), Born Lippy Lip Balms and the Hand Creams. I can’t just ignore the travel-friendly face masks and the Liquid lipstick in Tahiti is a gorgeous shade which suits all the skin tones.

One secret that I would like to share is that I use the Born Lippy Lip Balm as a lip scrub. Sounds interesting right? I just add some cane sugar to some lip balm and scrub it on my lips. My lips are treated with the goodness of the lip balm and the dead skin is taken care of by the sugar granules. This tip makes my lips perfect for the application of liquid lipstick.

As you can see, there are so many products. But if you see carefully, this set has a variety of bath and body products and less makeup. The makeup which they added is definitely a good choice – the lip color is perfect and the black eye definer. I am all about bath and body care this winter, so I am very happy about the variety of products.

This set also allows me to try different variants because I usually buy the same product over and over again. The kit is perfect for someone who likes choices in their everyday routine. 

This holiday season, the body shop advent calendars are a must try.
