You Beauty Advent Calendar Days 14-24

Thursday, 24 December 2015

It's time for the second half of my You Beauty Advent Calendar!

If you want to see what I got on days 1-13 you can read that here

Day 14

I haven't tried this yet, but I like Burt's Bees so I hope its good!

This is a 20g tube so retails at £1.35 which is pretty cheap!

The 170g one is £11.49

Day 15

On the 15th day I got this Caudalie SOS Thirst Quenching Serum

I really like Caudalie and I've tried this out and like it. It's quite thin, but very hydrating.

I also noticed that Desi Perkins and Lustrelux have used this in recent tutorials...and anything they have I want!

This 10ml retails for £9.60

Day 16

On Day 16 the door was pretty big!

And behind it was these tweezers from Vintage Cosmetics.

They're really cute and you can never have too many pairs of tweezers!

They retail for £8

Day 17

Behind this door was a Lanolips 101 Ointment

I've never heard of this, but I really like it and it doesn't have a scent or taste. Which I like in a lipbalm as they can be overpowering!

This retails for £10.99

Day 18

Behind door number 18 was a Benefit Roller Lash which I'm really excited to try!

This retails at £6.90

Day 19

I haven't actually tried out this product yet because of the fear that it might work like the Bee Venom eye cream I got on day 8 which made my eyes swell up!

But I've used a Bee Good handcream before and had no problems so hopefully I like this moisturiser!

This retails at £4.70

Day 20

This was one of the biggest doors and I was really excited to see what was behind it

They retail at £7 each so £14 for this door!

I'm excited to try them

Day 21

Behind door 21 was this REN 1 minute facial which I am yet to try but it sounds fancyyyy

This retails at £6.40

Day 22

Another skincare product behind this door is the Age Defy + 24 Hour Brightening Moisturiser

It retails for £11.65 so is quite pricey for this little bottle. I look forward to trying it!

Day 23

Only two days left :(

Behind this door was the Rodial Stem Cell Super Food Glam Balm

I've used this on my face and it kind of turns into a more oily moisturiser. It is really hydrating

It retails at £21.90 so is a high end product and so far I like it!

Day 24

Behind the final door was this Rituals Under A Fig Tree diffuser

A great item for the final day! I've put this in my living room and it smells really nice! I like Rituals products

It retails at £5.30 as its a mini one!

This really is a great Christmas present that you can enjoy all through December.

I was leaving London before Christmas Day so I actually got to open a few things on my last day

So I got all of the below on one day!

Which was definitely a treat!

Now its time to do what I did last year - work out the value of the products vs the cost of calendar.

I asked my Mummy and the calendar cost £59.95

The total value of the products was:

That's crazy! Such good value!

Thank you Mummy!


  1. You are very welcome Emma. thank you for handing onto me the bee venom eye cream I just haven't been brave enough to use it yet but I will.

  2. I have used the venom eye cream now. Luckily no reaction but not sure i notice a difference yet.

    1. Well at least your eyes didn't swell up! I bet you its really good everyone seems to be raving about it online
