Imagine the excitement of a child opening their advent calendar. Do you think you’re past all that, now you’re a grown up? Well, no matter how much adulting you do, I think a natural beauty advent calendar should be on your wishlist. In fact, you deserve one because you’re an adult. It’s a once-a-year chance to pretend you’re a kid again. The sense of anticipation. The exciting packaging. A treat that’s just for you. Every day. You can experience that too, with Green People’s Green Regime Beauty Advent Calendar.
It may only be October, but I am a Christmas fanatic (check out my Christmas plans here if you are too!) I also wanted to review the beautiful natural beauty advent calendar that Green People sent me, nice and early, to give you plenty of time to buy it if you want. So here it is, the packaging is so pretty, don’t you think? But what’s inside is even better. This Green Regime Beauty Advent Calendar is the ultimate natural beauty advent calendar, full of organic, natural beauty treats from Green People. I think it’s the perfect way to discover a new clean beauty favourite (or twelve) over the 12 days of Christmas, if you can wait that long.
Green Regime Beauty Advent Calendar Packaging
The big box contains 12 smaller boxes, each containing a generous trial size, or full size Green People treats.
Each box has the number written on it, along with a little hint as to what could be inside.
So, What’s Inside Those Tempting Boxes?
Warning: this Green Regime Beauty Advent Calendar review contains spoilers! Do not read any further if you don’t want to know what this natural beauty advent calendar contains. But if you can’t resist, get ready to be wowed.
This is what you get in the Green Regime Beauty Advent Calendar. It’s the perfect treat for anyone looking for a natural beauty advent calendar.
It has suit-all shades of lipstick, eye shadow and mascara. There are also travel or sample sized cleansers, exfoliators, shampoo, body wash and moisturisers, including Fruitful Nights Night Cream, which is my favourite night cream ever. There’s also an organic cotton headband and cotton make-up remover pad. It’s the perfect kit for travel, as well as for sampling some of Green People’s most loved organic, natural beauty products. Overall there are 15 products in the 12 boxes in this natural beauty advent calendar.
Here is the full list of what’s included in the Green Regime Beauty Advent Calendar, along with the ingredients. If this is too difficult to read, head to this page where they are also listed.
I’ve tried all of the products and like almost all of them. The Mascara, Shower Gel, Day Solution, Brightening Serum and Fruit Scrub Exfoliator are all winners for me. There are a few that aren’t for me – the lipstick is a little brown for my complexion, but of course it’s impossible to find one that would suit everyone! I do like the matte finish though, and it feels comfortable to wear. This is me wearing the lipstick, eyeshadow and mascara, with the illuminating serum and Day Solution as a base (plus foundation and concealer, of course!)
I didn’t get on well with the cleanser, it didn’t seem to remove my make- that well so is perhaps better suited as a morning cleanser. The only think I can suggest to improve this natural beauty advent calendar from Green People is including an eye cream and conditioner – perhaps swapping that for one of the facial moisturising products.
