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.
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??
