12 Days of Christmas Beauty Giveaways

Day 1: Lancome Collector “24 Beauty Wishes by Lancome” Advent Calendar

I’m kicking off my 12 Days of Christmas Beauty Giveaways with this special Lancome collector Advent Calendar. It’s one of my all-time favourites because it offers a great mix of colour makeup and skincare. But don’t race to use it leading up to Christmas. My advice is to hold off until the new year when you need something to brighten the cold, dark days of winter. Discovering a new beauty treat each day in January can be a fun way to start 2020.

This carefully-edited collection of some of Lancome’s most popular products and colours is sure to delight any beauty enthusiasts. You’ll find a trio of L’Absolue lipsticks, five L’Absolue lacquers, La Vie Est Belle fragrance mini and body lotion, Hypnose mascara and the award-winning Bifacil makeup remover among others. I’ve been to the labs just outside of Paris where many of the these products are developed and I can tell you that the chemists and scientists are truly passionate about these products. You can see the love and care they put into each formula.

    A snow globe that I’d fallen in love with but then couldn’t find again. My hubby tracked it down for me after a lot of searching! @woofwoofmama

    My favourite gift was a mug! Yes a mug! Because it was the first gift my little boy bought me when he was old enough to get something all by himself. He went away with family and took his own saved up money. He then came back with a lovely big mug with a tiger on (my favourite animal). It was thoughtful because he thought of me in the first place and also he picked one he knew i would love. I use it every day and i absolutely love it! <3

    My 5 year old daughter worked so hard for a couple weeks before Christmas making bead crafts. On Christmas morning she was so excited to see me open my present from her. That gift is more precious to me as time goes by.
    She is now 24 and I have her gift in my bedside nightstand.

    Someone once gave me a really personalized box with all kind of objects with jokes on it. I loved it and will probably always remember it

    last Christmas my boyfriend paid £75 for my allotment fees which I was so grateful as its like having a gift everyday of the year, going to the allotment keeps me fit and happy and the added bonus of growing lots of fruit and veg for us and our extended family. @32caley32

    I received a trip to Disney World back in 1992. This was so thoughtful as I had always wanted to go to Disney World.

    When my husband replaced the gem that had fallen from my engagement ring. I hadn’t been wearing it as it had no stone so hadn’t realised he had taken it and had the stone replaced. Was a wonderful surprise.

    My lovely dog, Lenny. My husband rescued him from a shelter for my birthday. He is my daily joy and my lifelong dream. I always wanted one and the right time came.

    My husband bought me a Mother’s ring. I know they are always special but it was even more so that year because we suffered a tragedy. I was told by the jeweler he cried when picking it out and I cried when I opened it. I cherish it every day and have had to add a stone when we thought we never would be able to.

    An iron with an extra long lead – to make my life easier.!!!! From my husband years ago, but he still is my husband. He’s never lived this one down.

    The first most wonderful gift my husband gave me was tickets to see David Essex for our first Valentine’s Day. It was wonderful.
