I know we are only half way through October...but who else is super excited for Christmas?!?!
It's definitely my favourite time of year and I love finding Christmas goodies nice and early to get extra excited about. This year I have been lucky enough to try out one of the beauty advent calendars by The Green People. I have seen so many beauty advent calendars around this year but for me the one by the Green People was perfect, as it's packed full of cruelty free, certified organic skincare and makeup! For those of you who had followed by blog for a while you will know I am a huge lover of their products!
*** SPOILER ALERT *** products included in this advent calendar are mentioned below
First of all when the calendar arrived I fell in love with how gorgeous it was! I love how all the little boxes were arranged and the design is just so pretty... I think i'm going to keep all the boxes as a pretty edition to my office even after Christmas haha.
A bit about the calendar:
Priced at £75, within this botanical beauty bounty you’ll find three full-size products from Green People’s natural mineral make-up range and a selection of organic skin and hair care treats. Each organic product in the Green Regime is entirely cruelty-free, and all are made made without harsh chemicals, parabens or SLS. Our limited edition beauty compendium is also approved by the vegetarian society and 100% recyclable.
There are a total of 12 boxes to open, some of which contain more than 1 item. As there is only 12 rather than 24 I think it would be nice to open one every other day in the run up to Christmas.
The products included are (these are a mix of sample and full sizes):
-Quinoa & Artichoke Shampoo 30ml
-Day Solution Cream SPF15 10ml
-Fruitful Nights Night Cream 10ml
-Cotton Head Bandeau
-Gentle Cleanse & Make-Up Remover 10ml
-Cotton Facial Cleansing Pad
-Volumising Mascara - Black
-Age Defy+ Soft Buff Exfoliator 10ml
-Quinoa & Calendula Shower Gel 30ml
-Damask Rose Facial Oil 5ml & Damask Rose Moisturiser 5ml
-Illuminating Eye Shadow Duo
-Age Defy+ 24 Hour Brightening 10ml
-Fruit Scrub Exfoliator 30ml
-Velvet Matte Lipstick - Damask Rose
So many lovely goodies!!
As a beauty lover this collection is an absolute dream! If you haven't already tried The Green People's products they are absolutely amazing, I'm yet to try something from their ranges which my skin doesn't like.
From the advent calendar my personal favs are the Damask Rose Facial Oil & Moisturiser, Age Defy+ 24 Hour Brightening and the velvet matte lipstick. Although I really like all the products i've tried so far... if you love citrus and floral smells then you will love these! Their skincare products always leave my skin feeling so soft and youthful, which is definitely appreciated now i'm heading towards my 30's.
I think this advent calendar would make a perfect gift for someone special or as a treat for yourself. I really love that there is a mixture of skincare, haircare and makeup. It really is such a lovely little surprise! It retails for £75 but contains products worth £125, you save £50 which I think is a pretty good deal!
