Harrods 2018 Beauty Advent Calendar

Thursday 4 October 2018

*Post in collaboration with Harrods* 

The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching and this years batch of beauty advent calendars are already beginning to hit the shelves. I was lucky enough to receive a sample of the highly anticipated 2018 Harrods Advent Calendar to review for you, and *spoiler alert* it’s amazing. I’m going to name all of the products in the calendar so if you want the contents to remain a Christmas surprise, make sure you scroll past the third paragraph!

When I think of Harrods I immediately think of high quality, luxurious products, so I wasn’t at all surprised by the breathtakingly beautiful design of this year's calendar. My initial reaction was ‘oh my goodness, it’s huge’ much bigger than it translates in photos, which I suppose isn’t surprising considering it contains a fair few full sized products. Each of the 25 boxes contains a little white pouch with the beauty treat hidden inside, adding to the excitement of unboxing each day. The elegant gold font splashed across the front of the box doesn’t give away the date of the calendar, so I think this would make a wonderful Christmas mantle decoration for years to come (you could even refill the empty boxes with little chocolates once the products have been used up!)

I've listed all of the products included in this years calendar below, the standouts for me are, of course, Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow (one of my favourite primers of all time, a must try for anyone!) One of the beautiful Bobbi Brown Eyeshadows in the shade Beach Bronze (a warm shimmery bronze shade which would be perfect for a Christmas look) and a Huda Lipstick in the shade Spice Girl (I've wanted to try more of her lipsticks since I received one in a gift set at Christmas - I'm so glad that Harrods decided to include this as one of the full sized products!) 

Full product list:
- 111 Skin Black Diamond Cream - 15ml 
- Sunday Riley Tidal Cream - 8g 
- Acqua di Parma Colonia Mini Hat Box - 3 x 5ml 
- Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser - 15ml

- Clarins Hand Cream - 30ml 
- BioEffect EGF Serum - 5ml
- Clinique Daily Booster with Pure Vitamin C 10% - 8.5ml
- Givenchy Rouge Interdit 13 - 3.4g

Priced at £250, this calendar certainly isn’t a budget option, but when you consider that the total value of the products included comes to £680, and that all 25 products fall under the luxury beauty bracket, the price tag seems more than justified! The calendar is available to buy right now on the Harrods website, but is selling out super quickly so if you want to get your hands on one you'll have to be speedy!

Will you be treating yourself to a beauty advent calendar this year?
