Benefit party poppers, 12 days of Christmas!

Hello again,

Think its now time to talk about the Benefit 12 days of Christmas advent calendar as today is the 12th of December! i know right basically half way to Christmas day already! Anyway back to the advent calendar this year benefit have decided on 12 days rather than the bog-standard 24/25 days and as Benefit say 12 days of gorgeous! The packaging itself this year is another bonus as its very compact unlike a lot of beauty calendars. The party poppers calendar retailed at £34.50 but i was lucky enough to catch it at Debenhams for £31.00 however if you was to buy these products separately the grand total would be around £79.17! This year Benefit decided on the box playing 12 days to Christmas song when you open the calendar only to my surprise at 4am in the morning the calendar decided it was acceptable  to start playing by itself, ill be honest i had to rip the singing parts out because it did start to get annoying when it just kept going off by itself.


The products

So i now own some of Benefits cult classic products, below is a list of the 12 products in the order i opened the windows.

  • ooh la lift under eye brightener
  • total moisture facial cream
  • high beam complexion enhancer
  • sugarbomb ultra plush lip gloss
  • they're real! lengthening mascara
  • lollitint poppy pink lip & cheek stain
  • the POREfessional PRO balm 
  • watt’s up! soft-focus highlighter
  • BADgal lash volumizing mascara
  • hoola ultra plush lip gloss
  • they’re real! remover
  • rockateur famously proactive face powder

As soon as i opened door 8 i couldn't get over how cute the watts up! Packaging was just so tiny and cute! My all time favourite moisturiser is the total moisture facial cream so i was happy that this product was in the calendar as i think benefit skincare isn't raved about enough! Literally the first night of sleeping with this cream on my face felt amazing in the morning! (my skin type is very dry) The only 3 products in this calendar that i haven't tried is the hoola & sugarbomb ultra plush lip glosses and the ooh la lift under eye brightener so I'm excited to see if these products live up to the other amazing products Benefit sell! I know its too late now to get your hands on one of these calendars but benefit have a wide range of Christmas gift sets available which I'm hoping i may open on Christmas day!
