ASOS are back with two choices of Beauty Advent Calendars for 2020, a 12 day and 24 day Calendar. The 12 Day Face & Body Advent Calendar is perfect for those who want to unbox some beauty treats throughout December but without paying the higher price tag.
The 12 Day Face & Body Advent Calendar from ASOS brings us 12 treats and is worth £75. Each product is packaged in a brightly patterned box, all packed into a clear acrylic box which can be reused as storage after the Advent Calendar is finished! The box is the perfect storage for beauty and makeup products and I’ll definitely be making use of it!
The ASOS 12 Day Face & Body Advent Calendar is still available and costs £35. Here’s what’s inside:
1. THE ORDINARY – NATURAL MOISTURISING FACTORS + HA 30ML
Day 1 holds The Ordinary Natural Moisturising Factors + HA – an incredible hydrating moisturiser suitable for most skin types. The moisturiser contains hyaluronic acid which is a humectant and draws in moisture to your skin, so it’s the perfect winter moisturiser to keep your skin soft and supple in the colder months.
At 30ml, this is the smaller tube and is worth around £6.
2. SPECTRUM – WONDER SPONGE LILAC
Next is a beauty sponge from Spectrum Collections. Not only do Spectrum make the most incredible makeup brushes, but also beauty blenders!

The point makes the sponge perfect for getting precision around the eyes and nose too!
