One of Japan’s best-kept beauty secrets is not a secret…
This year’s advent calendar from The Body Shop has really raised the bar. Not only have they moved away from the perforated pop-out doors from last year, but they have also added a whole lot more premium items in here ( I don’t want to ruin the surprise and list everything here).
The calendar is HUGE, with two doors that open to reveal…
24 tiny boxes of goodies! Every day, you remove a box, open it up and then flip it over to slowly spell out a secret message (more on that in a bit).
Since I was on vacation during week 1, I got to open all of these at once just like Christmas!
What surprises are waiting for you?
Day 1 – Frosted Cranberry Shimmer Lotion (60 ml)
I love the scent of this and am glad it’s back again this year!
Do one thing today that makes you happy.
Day 2 – Vitamin E Moisture Cream (15 ml)
I JUST used up the last of this cream on vacation. It’s my go-to day moisturizer!
Make the simple things beautiful.
Day 3 – Shea Body Butter (5o ml)
This is a really generous amount of body butter and it smells so good!
Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
Day 4 – Eye Definer in Black (full size)
Because who doesn’t need smoky eyes!
Tea solves everything.
Day 5 – Fuji Green Tea Body Wash (60 ml)
I use these mini bottles at the gym so into the gym bag you go!
Make it a December to remember.
Day 6 – Mint Green Shower Puff
Perfectly paired with yesterday’s shower gel!
Don’t be a wallflower today, enjoy the limelight!
Day 7 – Vitamin E Hydrating toner (60 ml)
I am really excited to try this out since I love the Vitamin E creams already.
So each day once you’ve opened up your little gift, you flip the box around to begin spelling out a secret message… stay tuned for next week’s reveal to see if you can guess what it says!
And there you have it, week 1 is done. I am pretty impressed so far with the products, the cute little daily affirmations and the packaging. Make sure to follow me on Instagram to see each day revealed in real time!
The Body Shop 24 Days of Happy is $99 CAD available in store (sold out online).
