It's nearly time to start opening the doors on your advent calendar and this year beauty lovers are spoilt for choice as there are so many amazing beauty calendars to choose form. I’ve done the hard job for you and checked out some of this year's best beauty advent calendars to see which ones are giving you the best value for money. 

The Boots No7 25 Day Beauty Advent Calendar is available in three different skin concerns. The ‘Lift & Luminate’ (worth £227.00), ‘Restore & Renew’ (worth £213.00) and the ‘Protect & Perfect’ (worth £208.00). All of these No7 calendars have 25 doors to open, cost £54.50 and are worth over £200. 

What I love about No7 skincare products is that there is years of scientific research that has gone into making each product. I think that the brand is sometimes overlooked in such a heavily saturated world of skincare brands. It’s definitely not a brand to ignore though as No7 produces luxury skincare and makeup products that are actually very affordable.

What are the top three products from the No7 Protect & Perfect 25 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar?

My absolute favourite product from the calendar hands down has to be the No7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Face Exfoliator 75ml. I love the feel of a good exfoliator but it was how my skin felt after using the product that really shocked me. I’m lucky enough to try lots of beauty products so when I read that this product gives you “visibly younger looking skin” I kind of rolled my eyes - a lot of brands make similar claims but I never really see any difference. 

I was genuinely blown away by this product. Not only did it actually take years off me (maybe like two) but after using it my skin felt as if I had applied a matte skin primer on top of it.  This is a full size product and one I will be purchasing again and again. 

No7 Moisture Drench Lipstick Voucher - I’ll admit when I opened the door and a voucher fell out instead of an actual product I was at first a bit disappointed. However, when I thought about it it made perfect sense if it had been a colour that I didn’t like it would have gone in a drawer never to be used. When I realised that I could go into Boots and choose a shade of Lipstick that I would wear I was over the moon. Maybe next time they could do this for a foundation. 

The calendar features 14 full size products however the mini’s are a great way to trial a new product. The No7 Beautiful Skin Blissful Body Wash 50ml smells incredible and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. Pair it with the No7 Beautiful Skin Completely Quenched Body Milk 50ml and you're got a match made in Christmassy heaven. 

The No7 Protect & Perfect 25 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar is available to buy from Boots instore and online now.
