Jack Wills Beauty Advent Calendar


Happy first day of Blogmas everyone and a happy first day of opening all of your advent calendars!

It feels just like yesterday I was writing my November post on how the year has gone by so quickly, and here we are about to put all of our Christmas decorations up.

Unfortunately this year I will not be taking part in Blogmas but I would like to wish everyone who is good luck, and I look forward to reading them all.

This time of year isn't just about shopping, putting your decorations up and listening to christmas songs, it's about sharing love and kindness to others in the world, whilst bringing everyone together. It's about reflecting on the year, making future goals for the coming year and getting together with friends and family.

As some of you may know, last years advent calendar post was all about yankee candle and my overall impression what not as I had hoped, I found the candles top not be as strong scented and they also didn't last as long as ones I usually bought. So this year I knew I wanted to try something completely new and go for a beauty advent calendar.

Jack Wills has always been a brand I've loved the look off but never really found myself purchasing anything from, so when I came across this advent calendar in Boots, I just knew it was about time I rectified that.



The Jack Wills Beauty Calendar is 24 days and retails at £35 - Whats included:

English velvet collection x5: Body wash, body scrub, body lotion, body spray, body butter
Nail varnish x4: Light gold, rouge, mauve, dark gold
Signature collection x5: Body spray, body lotion, body wash, body scrub, body butter
Hope cove collection x5: Body lotion, body scrub, body wash, body butter, body spray
Lip balm x2: Vanilla, berry
Hair coils x3: navy, pink and white
Hair grips x3: navy, pink and white
Mini emery boards

Initially I was really impressed with the sheer quantity you get within the advent calendar, but having come back to update you all on my first impression over a month later. I do now feel as though each day was really repeating themselves and every product looked exactly the same.

I found myself around day four not being exciting to open it anymore, and also stopped sharing daily updates on my instagram story. Eventually I would open them two - three days at a time and found myself unimpressed all over again.

The nail varnishes were definitely the highlight of the advent calendar, so if you ever find yourself wanting to try something from this brand this would be a good starting point.

I really was hoping for a great overall outcome as my hopes were so high for this years advent calendar. Fingers crossed next year I will have some brilliant products to review for you all!

  13. I would have never thought of Jack Wills having a beauty advent calendar. It looks like you get some good products for the price, a lot of the more reasonably priced ones only have 12 days x

  16. The jack wills advent calendar looks so good! For some reason I thought it would be more then £35! That is such a good reasonable price, I haven’t actually tried Jack Wills products before but this would be a great way too, also who doesn’t love a mini!
