Happy New Year!!!!!
As you read this post, I hope you are all having an amazing day. I want to wish you all the best of kick offs to 2017 and a year full of love, health, growth and prosperity.
Today I thought it would be fun to share with you guys my ASOS Beauty Calendar from December 2016.
I was super excited when this wonderfulness arrived in the mail! In the form a 24 day, gift a day, advent calendar, ASOS pulled together some of the top beauty products into one place. Each day you open up a door and find a new goodie inside.
Originally, I mentioned this box of happiness in my lately favorites video, which I'll leave here for you guys to watch. I was planning to create the blog post shortly after Christmas, however, I pushed it back to January 1st, 2017. I thought it would be a great way to kick off 2017. On the surface, you're opening up one beauty item per day, but the deeper meaning resonated with me. There is a new gift in every day, a reason to be excited, something to look forward to. What a powerful message to start the new year with.
Let's jump right into what each day included. I photographed everything from day 1 to day 24 chronologically. If I'm being perfectly honest with you guys I have never really been sure where and advent calendar is supposed to begin.... Do I start at day 24 and count my way down? Or do I start at 1 and work my way up to 24? Either way, here are the beauty items included in the ASOS Holiday Calendar.
Day 1: Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish
Day 2: Batiste Root Boosting Powder
Day 3: Burt's Bees tinted lip balm
Day 4: Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream
Day 5: Dermalogica Breakout Clearing Foaming Wash

Day 9: GlamCandy Moisturizer
Day 10: Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Primer
Day 11: Murine Bright & Moist Eyes
Day 12: The Green Balm Multi Purpose Balm
Day 13: DIY Nails Nailcals

Day 21: Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
Day 22: Monu Skin Firming Fiji Facial Oil
Day 23: Model Co Lip Enhancer
Day 24 Lottie London Compact Mirror
All I can say is WOW! There are some amazing items in here that I've loved in the past, some I've heard raved about but never tried myself, and others that are completely new to me! Even some new brands I wasn't familiar with. I would say it's the perfect balance. I'm really excited to include all of the goodies into my makeup and skin care routines.
Also, I have to note the size of everything is fantastic. They are all deluxe sized samples. More product gives you more uses and more time to form a good personal opinion of the product. It's perfect for those in the market for new products to try out 24 different beauty items!
That's all for today my loves. I wish you, once again, the happiest of years in 2017. Cheers to a new year, new beauty products, and finding beautiful gifts inside each and everyday.
All my love,
