Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars: The Myer Beauty Box


I thought I would start off this blog with one of my favourite parts about Christmas.
Advent Calenders.
When we were children, an Advent Calender was opening a new box each day leading up to Christmas, inside were small toys and treats that became larger and more decadent as we began the countdown to Christmas.

Now that we are older the treats are becoming even better!

Chocolate never goes out of style but a whole host of beauty brands have released 2015 Advent Calenders filled with luxury miniatures of beauty, skincare and fragrance.
I picked a few of my favourite brands to find out what’s on offer this Christmas. Let's start with Myer.


 
My Top Pick The Myer 2015 Beauty Box

RRP $160
From Myer in store and online 

Review
This is the first advent calendar Myer have released and they did good!
Inside you will find 24 individually boxed beauty goodies from some of their best selling brands, including YSL Beaute, Kiehl’s and Lancome just to name a few.

The design of the box is really well thought out. This is Myer classic black and white and feels sturdy and heavy with goodies.
Once opened there is a pop of red (Respect to you if you can resist the urge to open each box 1 day at a time) there is a pop of red and sense of luxury, with an illustrated list of the contents on the lid. 


All the goodies are in little numbered boxes and the range of deluxe samples consists of everything from skincare to fragrance and cosmetics, all from familiar brands. 
There are no odd colours or shades of orange frosty lipsticks that you know you would never wear and are so hideous that you can't even re-gift, just lovely little gifts that will suite almost everyone.
This is my favourite out of all of the 2015 advent calendars I have tried and I can’t imagine anyone not being happy with this gift. I feel it's well worth the price tag and perfect if you want a little treat for yourself this year too.
I really hope Myer do a beauty box again next Christmas because this has really set the standard high! Hopefully the other department stores get in on the act.
