Yesterday a box arrived for me and I instantly got excited because I knew something from Clarins was inside. As I sliced it open, and pulled out it’s contents I actually gasped. It’s one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in a long time.
Behold the Clarins Advent Calendar.
I can’t even express how excited I am and actually how meaningful this is to me.
As a little girl I used to look forward to the Advent calendars – colourful Christmas pictures with little windows all marked with the numbers 1-24, counting down to Christmas.
Each day, my eyes would dart quickly over the randomly scattered numbers, looking for the number correlating to the countdown day – a tiny feeling of victory when I found it. I’d pull open the cardboard window ever so gently and pull out the chocolate.
It was aways chocolate.
This year I began my quest of being sugar free. The idea of an Advent Calendar actually made me a little sad. There are plenty of sugar free options for Christmas recipes, but Advent Calendars? Not so much.
This is by far the BEST Advent Calendar I have ever received because behind each little window, is a little Clarins Product.
I opened window 1 yesterday, on the 1st of December and there’s a little pot of the Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch, which smoothes and fills in lines instantly.
I’m so excited to see what the other 23 products are!
Christmas is the time for giving and I would love to give you your own Clarins Advent Calendar.
I’m going to make it really easy to enter.
They have a brand new Instagram account and I would love to see it grow. They’re really interactive on it and even repost you if you feature them beautifully.
