Essence Advent Calendar Reveal 13-19 December


Hi guys ! Happy Tuesday . How has your weekend been ? I'm a little late with this weeks rundown - I totally  forgot to post yesterday. Next week Monday will be the last rundown on the calendar as well as my last post for 2016 . 


"Ho ho ho! The countdown is on – not long to go until the first door can be opened! With the limited “advent calendar”, essence is offering bestsellers and exclusive products in their original size. There’s a cute quote as well as an essence must-have for the eyes, lips, face or nails or a cool tool or accessory hidden behind each door. The large, beautifully decorated box looks like a Christmas present, so it’s a perfect gift for your best friend, sister or even to yourself! Merry Christmas… with essence!"

The Essence Advent Calendar is available from Dischem stores for R415 - although both Dischem stores close to be have them on sale for R375 currently. That works out to about R17,30 per item. The calendar includes 24 FULL sized products - most in special edition holiday packaging. As there was a few items I wanted to try - I was excited when I was gifted this beauty by my mom . Each day also includes a little quote - which is a fun way to start your day. 

If you follow me on social media - I'm sharing a quick snapshot every morning on Twitter and Facebook and a Instagram video as I open it . 

I won't be doing a full review in this post - but if you are curious about any of the products feel free and I'll gladly do a mini review of the ones requested.  For the people that alreasy requested products - I've written them down and will post them soon. :) 


Day 13 :
Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara . I love the waterproof version so I'm excited to try this one out too. I will be doing a post on my Essence mascara collection soon so stay tuned for a full review on this mascara. 
Day 14: 
Essence French Manicure Tip guides - these will always come in handy for nail art looks. 
Day 15 :
A pack with 5 mini eyeshadow applicators. These come in super handy when I'm using pigments to press onto the lids - so I always love more .
Day 16 :
Essence Play With My Mint nail polish. Swoon - I'm a sucker for minty polishes and excited to try this one out. 
Day 17 :
Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in Natural Beauty - The colour is gorgeous and I'm excited to see how it wears.
Day 18 :
Essence Kajal Pencil in Black. I'm kinda meh about this product - I don't wear a lot of black eyeliner in my waterline and I prefer Kajal pencils for that. 
Day 19 :
Essence Lip Brush - Another gorgeous snowflake design brush - I don't own any lip brushes so I'm excited to try this one out. 

Do you have an Advent calendar ? Any of these products you would love a review on ?

  1. I would love to hear your opinion on the mascara. I tried this very one and it was one of the worst I've ever had. Nearly as bad as the Rimmel ones. So I would really like to know what you think of it. Happy holidays, girl.

    1. Oh no , I haven't tried it yet but will give it a go and let you know I found it. I like the waterproof one - but it;s super tricky to remove at night.
