Essence Advent Calendar Reveal 6-12 December

Hi guys ! Happy Monday. How has your weekend been ? Any one else super excited for this time of the year. 

Today I will be sharing my Advent calendar rundown with you guys - I'll be posting every Monday to share the goodies I got in this lovely calendar. I'll be posting the goodies I got the week before Christmas just after Christmas . 

"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.

  3. oooh so cute! i'm a little jealous. i wanted a cosmetics advent calendar and been searching for an affordable one, but i didn't like the products range and quality, so i have decided to buy myself the items i really wanted instead, but yours looks just on point!

    1. I wanted one , but with Alex starting Grade 1 next year I decided to rather safe money towards that and school clothes ect when my mom surprised me with this. He has a Lego one he opens up every morning and I post on Twitter too. :)
