Latest In Beauty Advent Calender from You magazine

Yes Christmas is definitely over and I've definitely eaten all of my chocolate advent calender and I am sure this has been reviewed on other beauty blogs but this post is really aimed at those who wondered 'should I or shouldn't I' indulge in one of the many beauty advent calenders around this year.

I'll be honest, I ordered the Latest in Beauty calender too late for it to be delivered to me before 1st December in Dubai and then we were away for 2 weeks and then I've been sick since Boxing Day so I only opened this today-but I absolutely love it and I wanted to share the contents so you can see if when the 2013 beauty advent calenders launch you want to purchase.

The calender 'after'

I'm so pleased with this calender for the following reasons

1-It came beautifully packaged tied in a big pink ribbon (even after a 3500 mile journey)
2-All the products in it are a decent size
3-There are some brands in there that I haven't used before
4-There was a great selection of products
5-The majority of the products are 'high end' beauty products
6-There is only one product I probably won't use in all 24 products

Here's what the Latest in Beauty calender contained
