  1. Wow! Thanks for all that info!

  2. Nothing is over an ounce, except a candle. Hard no.

  3. Oooh, I’m a bit tempted by this one. I’m going to try to hold out for a little bit and see how I feel once I’ve purchased the other advent calendars I’ve had my eye on.

    • Hi Luna, I would love your opinion on which advent to buy my mom. She’s a young 60, loved Sisley’s box and overall enjoys skincare, hair care, candles and good makeup in classic colors. I’d love to buy her an advent calendar this year and my budget is up to $200. She has told me that she didn’t think she’d enjoy the Sisley subscription but it wound up being her favorite gift of the year. πŸ˜‚
      Any ideas? I’m okay with sample sizes, 6 vs 12 vs 24 gifts, etc. I just want to purchase her something that feels a bit luxurious and works.
      Thanks! (Also, why haven’t you been hired by MSA yet?!?) πŸ’™

      • Hi Mellissa! πŸ™‚
        A few calendars that meet (or come close to meeting) your criteria are:
        Feel Unique – It’s Β£89/~$115 but you can save 10% if you select “Powered by FeelUnique” as one of your Brand For Life brands in your account. It’s a 25-day calendar that has a nice variety of skincare, haircare, makeup, body care, aromatherapy, and even includes a candle! I like this calendar because I think they did a great job at including a variety of brands ranging from mid-range to luxe.
        MSA posted about the calendar here:

        Lookfantastic – It’s $110 (try code ADVENTUS to save $20; that code worked when the calendar first went on pre-order, but I’m not sure if it’s still working). This is a 25-day calendar that also includes a nice range of beauty products, although I don’t think it includes a candle.
        MSA posted about the calendar here:

        Macy’s – It’s $99, but if you’re interested in this one I’d suggest waiting since last year it went on sale for 50% off one week before Thanksgiving. If you don’t feel like waiting, then you can use code VIP to save 15% off right now. I think they also did a pretty good job at curating their 25-day calendar this year, and it includes a nice array of different types of beauty products from a nice variety of brands.
        MSA posted about the calendar here:

        Space NK – This year you can get their calendar by going on their UK site, then selecting the green “shopping from overseas” button; unfortunately, they’re not doing a standalone U.S. calendar like they have in prior years. This 24-day calendar includes a nice variety of beauty products (including a candle from Jo Loves) ranging from high-end to luxe brands. The cost on their site shows as Β£195, but a 16.67% VAT is removed for non-UK residents making it Β£162.50/~$206 for us. πŸ™‚ It’s not live now, but it should be available starting 10/1.

        MSA hasn’t posted about it, but the contents are:
        (there are only two variants b/w the UK & international calendars which I noted below)

        Eve Lom Cleansing Oil Capsules – unknown size
        Tan Luxe Super Glow Body Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum (75ml) – unknown value (not sure if the 75ml is a typo; a 30ml is sold for $49 which would make a 75ml worth $122.50… not sure that’s right)
        Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick in Pillow Talk – unknown size

        Total calculated value (not counting the 5 items below): $615.56 (a 67% savings)
        – Jo Loves Layered Christmas Candle (140g) – I couldn’t locate the size of their full size candles, so I wasn’t sure if this was full size or what the breakdown value would be.
        – NARS Mini Bronzer in Laguna – unknown size
        – Eve Lom Cleansing Oil Capsules – unknown size
        – Tan Luxe Super Glow Body Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum (75ml) – unknown value (not sure if the 75ml is a typo; a 30ml is sold for $49 which would make a 75ml worth $122.50… not sure that’s right)
        – Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick in Pillow Talk – unknown size

        Some other calendars you may want to keep an eye out for are:
        Skinstore which will go live on 10/1. It’ll be $150 with a $544 value.

        Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt (75ml)
        Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask (75ml)

        You can sign up to be on their waitlist by clicking the “Holiday Collection” link on their site.

        Beauty Expert – no info has been released on this yet, but last year it was $131.50. There was a 30% off coupon around December.
        MSA posted about the calendar here:

        Lookfantasic Beauty Chest – This will go live on 10/1, and it’ll be $130 with a $530 value. This isn’t a calendar, but a limited edition beauty box LF usually puts out during the holidays. Sometimes they do good bundle deals where you can get both their calendar and LE beauty box at a really great price.
        The box includes:
        Aurelia Cell Repair Night Oil
        Color WOW Dream Coat Spray (200ml)
        Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (30ml)
        ESPA Optimal Skin ProCleanser (100ml)
        EVE LOM Rescue Mask (100ml)
        Iconic London Lip Plumping Gloss in Lovestruck
        Kevyn Aucoin The Neo Blush (Grapevine, Pink Sand or Rose Cliff)
        Natasha Denona Eyeshadow Palette 5 (assorted shades)
        NEOM Real Luxury Scented Candle (Lavender, Jasmine or Brazilian Rosewood) (185g)
        Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream (15ml)
        Pai Skincare Rosehip Oil (30ml)

        I think that’s all I can think of right now. As usual, I feel like I’m blanking on a couple, but I’ll update if I remember any more πŸ™‚ I’d love to hear which one you ultimately decide on! πŸ™‚

      • Thank you SO much Luna! I screenshotted all your suggestions so I can do some research later. I’m leaning towards one of the Space NK boxes for both her and (now) me. I adore Barbara Strum and that basically pays for half of the box. Thank you a million times Luna!

      • You’re welcome! πŸ˜€ I’m glad I could help!
