I do love a good, value for money, Beauty Advent Calendar and every year the selection on offer in the UK just keeps expanding. 
Unfortunately this concept of having a daily, surprise beauty treat behind 12/24 or 25 doors hasn't caught on in South Africa,partially due to the cost factor, so therefore very few brands import them into the country. 
The only brands that I'm aware of having calendars in SA are L'Occitane, which currently have two on offer their current 2018 (which looks great) and the 2017 calendar, which suggests to me that their sell through on last years didn't meet their expectations
 The Body Shop usually have two or three on offer at varying price points. 
New onto the Beauty Advent Calendar scene this year is Clarins, they have a 12 Day calendar packed with skin & body care and make-up deluxe sizes.

I also write an annually series of blog posts about the Beauty Advent Calendars available in the UK and based on this I try to organise "by hook or by crook" to get one brought 
to South Africa and last year it was the Marks & Spencer's multi brand calendar which made it to these shores via my "LondonKiddiewink" which I was thrilled about & I'm hopefully, fingers crossed, going to receive another one for this December.

However during my research I came across this multi brand "goodie" from the UK online  beauty store FEELUNIQUE.

Housing 24 doors or boxes to be precise, it contains many mid to high end, either full, deluxe or sample sizes of many products that I've been looking to try. 

Now I understand that via my research I am taking away any element of surprise but converting Rands to Pounds I can't afford to make any poor choices, so I need to know the contents, but I still get excited to open each day.

This beauty Advent Calendar contains a mix of skin, body and hair care products
as well as some make-up items and a make-up brush.

Brands include:
Crabtree & Evelyn
Charlotte Tillbury
and many more

Let me know in the comments section below if you can see any of your favourites.
