My first thought when it arrived was, Whoa. This is big. And it is. If I were to compare it to something you have, it's maybe the same vertical footprint as a KitchenAid stand mixer? I mean close to that? It's awesome.
But let's get to the good stuff, shall we? Here's a picture of the haul.
Now in case you're not sure, an advent calendar is something that you open beginning on December 1st for 25 days as a count down for Christmas. Which means, we got 25 different products, some of which were good, some of which were better, but none of them were terrible. I'm not going to talk about all of the products, but I will talk about my favorites. (Scroll down for a complete list).
Dying my hair blonde is something I'll never regret, however, it does come with a lot more maintenance. I'm always on the look out for a good oil and the Moroccan Oil Treatment always comes highly recommended.
We did get a fair amount of skincare in the calendar, but my two favorite items were the Foreo Luna Play and the Ole Henriksen Cleansing Cloths. The Luna Play was actually on my 'to buy' list for the last six months so when I got it, I literally squealed like a little girl. I love trying new cleansing cloths and I'm excited to try some Ole Henriksen.
Ardell Wispies are a cult classic, there's not much I can say about them, and I'm a huge fan of the Look Good Feel Better brand! I actually already have this brush, but it's my favorite brush, and I will keep it regardless. NudeStix is a great brand as well, with an innovative approach to beauty projects. The the Lip + Cheek stick is a great handbag item!
