    If you could only buy one calendar, which would you buy? I’m looking for a wide variety of high-end products, not necessarily full-size. I’m happy with a bunch of sample sizes. I got Liberty’s last year but am wondering if I should mix it up and try a different one this year as it seems they are replicating some products from last year.

      Hey Val,

      Oh hard question! For high-end for me I would choose the Harrods calendar, just because it looks amazing and I really like the brands that are included, although the John Lewis one is a lot more affordable and looks fantastic too! So definitely one of those two!

    Hi. How do I get my hand on Sephora Advent Calendar? Does their French website ship to the UK?

      Hi! Yes the French and American website ship to the UK, with the French one you won’t need to pay any extra customs though!

    I’m so grateful for this post, it’s so complete!! I didn’t know there was such a wide range of prices and products, it’s pretty awesome. The amazon one and the Feel Unique one really caught my eye, now i’m pumped for Christmas 🙂

    The Tili one and the Sephora one are not on the websites. I guess they gave you a press release that said those dates but they’ve changed it? Great list and I have shared it with some people I know who will be keeping an eye out for these!

      Hi! The TILI one isn’t available to pre-order until October 23rd as I mentioned, but as for Sephora I don’t have a date for that, I’m guessing it will be late October/early Nov as when they launched last year. But yes a lot of the dates have been changing, either bringing forward or pushing back, but have updated as much as I can.

      Thanks for sharing!

    Which of these would you recommend for a 17 year old girl?

    • Reply
      October 16, 2017 at 20:04

      I’d say the Look Fantastic one is pretty stand out to impress a 17 year old, as it turns into a beauty storage unit, but NYX and Sleek would be good options too!

    My daughter had the Rituals one last year and we were both surprised by what was included. It was well worth the money and no problems with her skin after using. This year she’s treated me to the original one and herself the deluxe version.

    Hi, I have been loving your advent calendar videos. Will you be doing an unboxing of the Amazon advent calendar? 🙂

    Thanks for all the unboxings and this list, it’s really made it easy to pick which to have this year by seeing what is in them rather than just a list of products. One I thought I wanted I decided wasn’t for me after watching your video and one I thought I didn’t want I’ve got ordered now!
    For this year I’ve picked Look Fantastic, ASOS, You Beauty and I’m hoping to get Tili tomorrow too after your video today. So thank you for making this Advent a lot of fun, I cant wait for it to start!

    Hi I’m sorry your getting hate on YouTube I’m loving the unboxings and I always love your advent calendar posts every year.

    Which is your favourite calendar from each price range?

    I got the look fantastic one last year but the packaging was a little difficult to get into. I wasn’t going to get it this year I had convinced myself I was going to splurge on a liberty calendar until I saw the packaging on the look fantastic calendar which is now sitting in my living room waiting for December. I’m trying to decide which one to get my mum. I got her the M&S one last year but I’m not sold on it this year the packaging is a bit annoying and all the reviews I’ve seen said it got damaged in the post. I don’t think my mum would wear the makeup in there. I feel like the skincare is aimed at an older audience but the makeup seems quite young in comparison. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I’ve been debating splurging on the liberty calendar for her but she might not be happy that I spent that much on a calendar but she’s worth it

      Hi! Thanks so much for your message. That is so lovely your thinking of buying your mum the Liberty calendar, I say go for it! It’s such a beautiful calendar and I am sure she will be thrilled to bits with it!

      I know what you mean about the LF one last year and this year I wasn’t expecting that at all, hands down the best packaging. M&S slightly disappointed me this year, I much preferred it last year, for the design and the product selection, still a good calendar, just I wasn’t loving it as much.

      Ok hard choice but here are my picks, I tend to like the ones with a variety of products.

      Under £50 – QVC
      Over £50 Look Fantastic for the design but I really did love You Beauty, although if I was being bought one I’d ask for Estee Lauder Multi Brand Calendar 🙂
      Over £150 Harrods or Liberty (too hard to choose!)
