The Body Shop Advent Calendar Day 1-5

My Mom had me over for tea in late November and gave me not one but TWO advent calendars to take home!! *squeals* (Okay so one was for my husband, but I still got pretty excited!) I’ve seen so many advent calendars floating around online the past couple of years but I’ve never actually had one until now.


My calendar came from The Body Shop. I wistfully stared at The Body Shop’s calendars all last Christmas but they were so expensive (over $100 in Canada) that I couldn’t justify it. Now I have one!! YAY!! My husband got the David’s Tea calendar.

David’s Tea Advent Calendar. Such cute little mice!

I’ve opened five doors so far, it’s so fun getting a new gift each day!

Day 1: Spiced Apple Shower Gel Mini
This smells like apple cider! Love it!

Day 2: Bath Lily
I always called these loofas, but TBS tells me different on their website. I’m going to hold onto this until my current one wears out. It’s good to have a spare!

Day 3: Vitamin E Moisture Cream Mini
I’m not really sure if this is more of a body lotion or a face lotion. It kinda smells like Calamine lotion.

Day 4: Frosted Berries Softening Lotion Mini
This has such a strong smell to it. It’s not bad, but it’s a little overpowering. I’ll use it in small quantities!

Day 5:  Soft Facial Cleansing Sponge
I’m so excited about this little sponge! I recently ordered a Konjac sponge from Julep but I’m going to try this first. It’s soft and squishy but the texture seems like it would exfoliate well. I’m excited to use it with my Fresh soy face cleanser.

So that’s my first few days of advent goodies! I won’t be posting my calendar gifts every day, instead I’ll be grouping my them into  3-5 day posts. What advent calendar are you loving right now??

  1. I wanted to buy TBS calendar but I somehow resisted! I also really wanted the LookFantastic calendar. It’s just so expensive! This Body Shop one looks great so far! I think the Vitamin E cream can be used body or face but I know my sister uses it for her face. 🙂

    1. The look Fantastic calendar is awesome! Crazy expensive though, especially since it’s in pounds. So far I’ve really enjoyed this calendar, The first thing I do in the morning is open one of the boxes now. Good to know! The packaging was kind of vague on what it’s for, I will probably use it as a face cream too then 🙂

    1. It’s expensive right?! And this is the least expensive of the three TBS offered! I probably wouldn’t have bought it for myself so it was a really lovely gift to receive. Thank you, I definitely will! 🙂
