Sara Miller London Chelsea Advent Calendar

Is it just me or is the lead up to Christmas just as exciting as Christmas Day itself? Binge watching Christmas movies as a family, eating all the festive treats and sweets, going to christmas markets, christmas present shopping and opening up your advent calendar. There is so much fun to be had. Have I missed anything?

For me an advent calendar is a must every Christmas. Opening up a new door on my advent calendar to unveil a surprise each day of December until Christmas Day fills me with so much excitement, even at the age of 25. It makes the build up to Christmas even more exciting. Age is just a number. You're never too old to have an advent calendar. Each year I buy myself, Josh and the boys an advent calendar each without fail. Well, the boys end up being treated to two each year. The boys always have a toy advent calendar(either duplo or lego) and a chocolate calendar. Just seeing their eyes light up every morning after opening their advent calendars melt my heart. They are always filled with so much happiness and joy. It reminds me of what I was like as a child. It's so heartwarming.

There are so many different advent calendars to choose from. There are calendars to suit every age and preference which I love. I have to admit I am a sucker for a beauty advent calendar though, being a beauty junkie. I find it so difficult to choose just one as there are so many on the market right now, however the one great thing about that is that there's at least one to suit your budget. 

One beauty advent calendar that I truly think is worth splashing the cash on is the Sara Miller London Chelsea Advent Calendar(£95). Sara Miller London is a luxurious lifestyle brand well known for their playful prints, use of bold colours and vibrant patterns. 

The entire Sara Miller London Christmas Collection is beautiful, however I believe the Chelsea Advent Calendar is the star of the show. It takes you to a whole new destination with the midnight blue casing which is adorned with an exotic bird, colourful foliage and embellished with accents of gold leaf which are synonymous throughout the brand.

Inside the advent calendar there are 24 bath and body favourites which are contained in their very own colourful box which come in a variety of colourful shades(turquoise, white, midnight blue and bright pink). 

The Sara Miller London Chelsea Advent Calendar boasts 4 edt rollerballs(10ml), 8 hand creams(30ml), 1 body souffle(50ml), 4 shower creams(30ml), 3 hand soaps(30g) and 4 lip glosses(15ml), all of which are delicately wrapped in Sara Miller London tissue paper. There has been a lot of care and attention put into this calendar. It doesn't go unnoticed.

The body products are blended with a fusion of four different fragrances:
  • Peony, bergamot and amber
  • Fig leaf, cardamom and vetiver
  • Rose, patchouli and cassis
  • Tuberose, sandalwood and vanilla
However the lipglosses have three delightful flavours- Mint, Berry and Watermelon.

I have many favourites from the Advent Calendar. The body souffle, shower creams and hand creams are perfect for this time of the year. They leave my skin feeling nourished, hydrated and soft. They were well needed as my skin tends to get quite dry in this cold weather. I like to keep a hand cream in my handbag so I can reapply throughout the day.

If I'm honest I wouldn't usually use soap. I am very much a handwash kinda gal, however I really enjoy using the soaps. They lather up wonderfully, leaving my hands smelling amazing and feeling soft. No dryness to be seen here. It's quite a pleasant experience.

I also love the fragranced rollerballs too. Not only are they beautifully designed with the gold leaf details on the clear glass packaging, but they also smell incredible! They're so handy too. I just roll a little of the perfume on my wrists and neck and off I go. I change up the scents every couple of days and pop them in my handbag so I can top up when I'm on the go.

Now, I know I said I have many favourites but the lip glosses top them all. They are all clear with minimal stickiness which I love. They are incredibly nourishing on the lips and they all smell delicious too.

There isn't a single product in the calendar that I dislike. It's great value for money with the full range of products costing over £175. If you feel like splashing the cash this year on a beauty advent calendar, the Chelsea Advent Calendar won't disappoint.
