  1. Ok I think I have Commented on this post about 10 times now! Lol but really this calendar is fantastic!! There is not one thing that I will not use! And it is absolutely beautiful definitely a keeper! so glad I got it!

  2. I just received mine, thankfully, I ordered multiples because I have mom and sisters. 🙂 This box is HUGE!!! HUGE! HUGE!!
    Everyone is super excited and it looks like Christmas came in November>
    I love the box!! I haven’t opened the doors yet but there are spoilers out there. I wish I bought more.

    • My box is arriving tomorrow! I’m so excited, I can hardly wait!!! I also wish I had purchased another one!! ❤️❤️❤️
      Seriously can’t wait to see it!!

      • It’s big and heavy. There is already a reveal on one of the websites and it looks like our resident Inspector Gadget/Sherlock Holmes…Luna has found it! 🙂
        I don’t subscribe to the monthly box so I’m not getting doubles.
        I seriously do not think this box is going to make it to December. My mom’s bday is Thanksgiving so I’m going to give it to her then.
        It’s just so much fun with all these calendars…gifts everyday! <3 <3 <3

  3. Just when I finally decided to cave in, it had to be officially sold out 18 hrs ago…
    Oh well, save more money for Sephora I guess (sigh)
    Btw, the decleor is also currently sold out… hope there’s a chance they’ll restock…

    • I was going to buy it today, guess I waited too long also. Oh well sure I can find another box to spend my money on.

  4. I’m reading through the comments and although I received their subscription box for six monthsi decided to look in their website for my delivery address. Somehow it picked up my PO Box #, my city, my COUNTY, my country and my zip code. I hope this doesn’t present a problem. I don’t know why the delivery address defaulted to this weird address. I suppose there’s enough info for the box to get to me but … On the bright side, lots of items to our up for swap!

    • I got an email from LF yesterday saying it is unlikely that I will receive my box do to the incorrect address (the county instead of state) and they are not liable for replacing the box.
      But if you have been getting your boxes all along then I wouldn’t worry about it 🙂

  5. I found spoilers for the advent calendar, and I thought I’d list them to not only satisfy our constant need for spoilers ( 🙂 ), but to also help anybody whose on the fence about whether or not to purchase this calendar:

    Illamasqua – Eye Shadow Pallette (4 colors… looks like a highlight, brown, nude/neutral and rusty color)

    • Thanks for the spoilers Luna! I’ve been on the fence about buying this one and now that I’ve seen the spoilers I think I will save my money. It seems like a great box but I would rather have the full size Foreo Luna 2, which I’ve been eyeing ever since I received a broken Play in my May Allure box. I will just put what I would have spent on this towards my Sephora purchase when they have their sale in November. Thanks again, your updates are always great!

  6. Just purchased this yesterday and it is already in transit!!! So excited!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
    Glad this has tracking, seeing how my October box never made it to me!

    • Hey Sabrina, I posted on the other thread but thought I would mention it here too, that I finally did receive my October box today. It took 10 days to get to my house (I live in Oregon) so there probably is still hope for your box ? Keeping my fingers crossed for you and I loved your comment about SAA. I’m feeling I need that right about now!

      • I’m so glad you received you box! That is fantastic! Unfortunately the address I originally used for delivery was completely messed up! I actually put my county in the county Field instead of putting my state in the county field! Ughhh
        I contacted LF a few times about the error but because the address mistake was my fault they will not look into the issue of the missing package! ? oh well
        On a good note, my advent calendar has already shipped and is due to be her by Monday!! Which is crazy seeing how I JUST ordered it!
        Again, I’m so glad to hear that you box made it safe and sound!
        I’m totally looking forward to the November LF box it looks beautiful!

  7. So I did it!!! Can’t wait to get this!!! But I starting to think I may need SAA!!! Totally addicted!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  8. I am SO torn on buying this one!!! I really want it but with no spoilers I just don’t know ?
    And I’m sure they will sell out if I wait too long!
    Please do review this one Liz ❤️

  9. I never purchased a beauty advent calendar before… will likely purchase this even though I don’t need more stuff! hehe 🙂

    • I just ended up ordering this, and was charged $140 CAD ($20 shipping even though it says $120 with free shipping). Did anyone else have this happen to them? There wasn’t a seperate free shipping option….

      • Yes, I was also charged $20 in shipping. I wasn’t able to chose the shipping method, it was pre-picked.

      • From their site…….Please Note: Payment for your Advent Calendar will not be taken until we dispatch your item. By pre-ordering you are reserving stock. Dispatches will start from October until the Beauty Advent Calendar sells out. Price could vary when shipping outside of the UK.

        So according to LF price varies when shipping outside the UK.

  10. I finally caved and bought this one! I’ve been ‘looking’ at it ever since they emailed me about it. So I ordered it, and I’m glad I did, can’t wait to get this!

    • You’re gonna like it. I was excited before I got the box. I was even more excited after I got the box!
      It’s huge and heavy and I feel like Christmas is here and I don’t have any discipline so I’m opening advent calendars left and right and having so much fun!!!
      I swear, I feel like a kid in Charlie’s chocolate factory!

  11. Maybe a giveaway? *eyebrow waggle*

    I don’t think I’d be willing to gamble on loving the products for this price, but I really love the concept, so I’m torn.

  12. I love these advent calendar posts!

  13. I am so torn about this one. I feel like the brands and the items will be good and it will be a lot of fun to open the daily items.

    It just is making me think that the contents will be similar to the GWP bags at Barneys and SpaceNK.

    Does anyone have experience with this one? It’s hard to pay for items that might be free with purchase (in the past or in February for the next events).

    • I didn’t purchase last year’s box, but from the reviews I’ve read is that it was virtually all duplicates from the 2015 boxes. Of course, most subscribers weren’t too happy about that.

      I’ve been subscribed since February, and I pre-ordered the calendar, so even though I might receive duplicates, I’m willing to take that chance because I’m so curious about what’s in it! Also, I’ve really enjoyed everything I’ve received in the LF boxes, so I’ll happily use any duplicates I get. However, I read in an email LF sent that this year’s calendar is ‘new & improved’ with new products… I think they mean ‘new’ as in not in their monthly boxes. They may have directly said, but I can’t remember.

      Also, I’m pretty sure they didn’t provide spoilers last year, but hopefully this year they will!

  14. I’d like to see some of what’s in it before I decide to buy. Hopefully a review or sneak peak will be up soon!

    • you can see what was in last year’s if you go to their website.

      • I googled last year’s box and it was terrific. Based on that, I purchased 3 boxes. Lots of holiday gifting to be given and I’m sure whoever gets this will by thrilled! I’m excited to see what’s in store for 2016.
        Just by following a few threads there seems to be a trend for “Advent calendars”, hmmmmm… let’s see what the holidays will bring!

        • I’m also excited to see more postings on advent calendars! I just became aware of beauty advent calendars this year, so this will be my first year getting any. I’m so excited! I’ve already purchased the LF & Decleor calendars, and am planning on purchasing the Jo Malone one when it comes out. There are already so many others out already, but surprisingly they haven’t interested me too much.

          • Did you get an email confirming your order? I didn’t and want to make sure the pre-order was recorded.
            I didn’t know Jo Malone does an advent calendar, I will definitely have to watch out for that! My signature fragrance is orange blossom. Love it!

          • Yes, I did receive a confirmation email for the pre-order, but I haven’t been charged for it yet. I’m guessing I will be when it ships.

            I think we’re fragrance twins! 😀 Orange Blossom is the fragrance that hooked me. I’m currently working through the body lotion layered with the perfume. I wish I was brave enough to layer it with their other complementary scents. I just feel like I’d put too much on & my perfume would arrive before I did!

            I only own a few full-sized perfumes, but I have countless deluxe samples from GWPS (my mom is the biggest Jo Malone fan so I keep the GWPS when I buy her stuff), so this is the last thing we both need, but it still looks like so much fun!

          • WOW! I had to buy the Decleor too! 🙂
            I love, love, love this idea. I was at Sephora over the weekend and I kept seeing items that I received from sub boxes and some of the really small products can be quite expensive.
            24 items for $95 is about $4 per item. Not bad even if you don’t like everything.
            I can’t wait for Jo Malone. My favorite. 🙂

  15. Purchased one about a week ago. Last years was amazing. I expect the same with this years. I currently do not subscribe to the monthly box, but have decided to not renew one of my Birchbox subscriptions when it expires this month and do this one instead.

  16. I’m happy to hear that they do duplicates- I don’t get their boxes but I’ve been wanting them, so I hope they include few items from the past! Thanks for posting

    • Also I think its tagged incorrectly (play by sephora now)!

  17. I’m a subscriber to their monthly and love it. This has actually been available on their website for over a month. Was not sure if I would buy it. But think I will.

  18. Thr previous calendar was very impressive, but as a subscriber to their box I expect to see a lot of duplicates and, besides, I prefer more makeup than skincare. And its CAD 120. So, all in all, I am not tempted. I am waiting for the Feel Unique and L’Occitane ones.

  19. I just ordered one and would love to see this reviewed! There is a promo code for 15% off (LF15) that i didn’t find until after I ordered. I’ve emailed CS to ask if they can apply it retroactively and am waiting to hear back. FYI: there is also a shipping and tracking charge of $9.99, so the total without discount when you check out is $104.99.

    • I tried LF15 and every other coupon I could find before posting – none of them worked, so I believe this product is exempt from coupons. Sorry!

      I’ll definitely buy one and review, though! 🙂
