Yesterday I shared whether I thought the M&S Advent Calendar was worth the money or not, and today I’m moving onto the Sanctuary Spa Advent Calendar. This was the first advent calendar I bought this year as I love a good pamper, and this advent calendar seemed like the perfect option for me.
Priced at £25 and being included in Boots’ 3 for 2 Christmas gift deal, this was one of the less expensive calendars released this year and that meant that I was all about getting this, especially when it ran for 24 days.
Included in this advent calendar was a variety of Body Washes, Skincare Products, Body Creams, and Pamper Essentials such as tea lights, a sleep mask and exfoliating gloves. I’ve been dying to try the 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask for ages and this was the product behind door number 13. I’m also always game for trying a new micellar water which was found behind door 21.
Overall, this advent calendar was worth the money but some of the gifts were pretty naff. The inclusion of a cookie cutter and a bulldog clip was completely unnecessary and obviously just a filler item. I’d have rather paid £25 for 12 days of good products, than £25 for 24 days of sub-par items. If Sanctuary release an advent calendar next year I’m not sure I’ll be picking it up because I can’t bring myself to realise that I’ve paid £1.04 (it works out at that per item) for one wooden cuticle stick which probably cost pennies to produce. At least I’m not going to run out of shower gel and body cream for a little while!
