D.I.Y Beauty Advent Calender


Images via Pinterest 

I've lusted after so many beauty advent calenders for the past few years but I can never seem to justify the prices. However with Black Friday bringing us so many amazing deals, I have literally been hooked to my inbox over the past week so when I spotted that Latest in Beauty had 30% off, it gave me an idea to create my own beauty advent Calender!

Latest in Beauty have recently relaunched and now offer a subscription box with a choice of 3, 6 or 9 products that you choose yourself, this means that you can choose products that you know you'll use, check the sample sizes and choose the colours/scents to suit you, however you can also choose to have these boxes as a one-off and you can buy multiple boxes too. I decided to purchase two boxes, a box of 9 products (£18) and a box of 3 products (£9) to make a twelve days of Christmas Beauty advent Calender that I know I'll love.

If your quick enough and order this Cyber weekend there's 30% off EVERYTHING with the code 'CYBER' (ends Tuesday 29th November 16) which means that you can get 12 products for your D.I.Y Beauty Advent Calender for just £18.90 plus delivery (£3.95) instead of the usual price of £27 when following what I did.


Latest in Beauty have so many amazing brands to choose from right now and some very generous sample sizes too, here's what I chose:


Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Rose (830) 30g

Elemental Herbology Facial Soufflé Overnight Repair Cream and Mask 30ml
Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser 90ml
Nails Inc Nail Polish in Uptown 14ml
Fleur de Figuier Body Lotion 50ml
Vita Liberata Self Tanning Gradual Lotion 50ml
Rosie for Autograph Nuit Parfum 15ml

Bee Good Youth Enhancing Hydrate, Smooth and Prime Serum 10ml
Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen in Black
Caudalie Divine Oil 15ml
Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water 28ml
Kitsch Hair Ties X 5

These are of course all subject to availability, I already missed out on the Alpha H Liquid Gold (sobs) so if theres something you really want, be sure to place your order sooneer rather than later top avoid missing out on a product like me.

I have a few ideas from Pinterest on how to create my Beauty Advent Calender, from simply placing them in paper bags (£3.50 Ebay) with pegs (£1.65 Ebay) maybe in a basket (£6 Ikea) and numbering them with gift tags (£2.35 Ebay) to hanging them from a wooden tree ladder (£10 John Lewis) which means that you can make it cheaper or a little more expensive depending on your budget. I already have the pegs and wicker basket so if I go for thar option I only need to buy the bags and tags which means my whole Calender comes to a total of £28.70 including delivery! Though I am tempted by the wooden ladder tree that's for sure! I am seriously so excited to put this together and will update this post with a picture when it arrives and is complete! Be sure to check my Instagram here for updates too! 

Will you be making your own Beauty Advent Calender this year?
