No7 Advent Calendar Unboxing (Spoilers!)

27 November 2019


You will probably be surprised by this but I haven't actually had a beauty advent calendar before until now! I think beauty calendars are such a good idea and they are a great way to try quite a few different products and I just think it brings the Christmas spirit early. In Today's post, I will be unboxing the No7 Advent Calendar from Boots but beware of the spoilers!

What is the advent calendar worth?

This calendar is priced at £42 but inside you get products amounting to the price of £173.50 and this price is based on the full size of the products included. For the price of £42 I do think this calendar is pretty reasonably priced, it isn't crazy expensive like some I have seen out there but it just in the middle range. While unboxing this calendar I realised that a lot of the products like some of the makeup items are actually the full-sized products. This calendar as well as a 25-day calendar which I think is the best kind, when I see 12-day calendars I instantly feel like its a rip off because they are usually pretty pricey. 

Packaging 

The packaging of this calendar is pretty but it doesn't instantly scream Christmas to me which is what I usually love. The design of the box is a big blue gem and the doors inside the calendar are either pink or blue gems in all different sizes. The packaging itself is thin cardboard and it opens out in the middle with all the product being behind different doors. What I like most about this product is that it isn't a waste of packaging, some calendars out there are way too big and would make a lot of waste. Once the plastic inside has been removed the cardboard can easily be recycled.


Calendar Contents 

In this calendar, you get 25 different items with them being either skincare or makeup items. When I was unboxing this calendar there were two slots that had a Voucher to get the Stay Perfect Eye Shadow and another voucher to get the Lash Impact Lash Serum.

Overall Thoughts 

Overall im actually really happy with this Christmas advent calendar, even though No7 is a brand that I usually go for im actually very excited to get stuck in and start trying the different products. I think you get a good range of products with a mix of skincare and makeup items and you also get a really good selection of full-size products along with a few samples sizes. I do think if you can get your hands on this calendar you won't be disappointed and you get a good value for your money.

Pin For Later...

Getting this calendar has definitely made me want to go out and buy more to unbox because im a bit of a child like that I get so excited over unboxing new makeup and skincare items. Have you unboxed Christmas advent calendar before?

  1. I treated myself to the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar last year but didn't bother this time around because I didn't use half of the products! I do like the look of the No. 7 one though, and that's seriously good value too. One for my Christmas list, thank you, Aaliyah :) Lisa x

    1. That’s the only problem with getting a Beauty advent calendar is being able to use all of the products up and with this calendar you do get a good selection of products! X

  2. I've never had a beauty advent calendar either, I look at them every year but I'm never sure which ones to get or which will be the best for me so I end up not getting one. I like that this one has a good mix of makeup and skincare, and it seems like really good value. With discounts like that I think it's a great way to try more from a brand if you're not too familiar with the products to begin with x

    1. That was always my problem too, I wasn’t sure which one to get and then by the time I’d decide they were all out of stock as they get picked up so quickly! I do like that this a calendar has a lot of different products in and there’s a really good selection! X

  4. I'm very surprised to hear you've never bought an advent calendar before! I wish I'd had known about this one sooner because I'd have bought it for my Mum for Christmas as she uses a lot of No.7 products! I think this is SUCH amazing value and you get such a good range of products too! x
