After I had their advent calendar last Christmas, and absolutely loved it, I had been on the lookout for the 2017 offering from Sanctuary.
I eagerly scoured their website, the Boots website and all the beauty blogger advent calendar roundups I could find from October to no avail.
Sanctuary, it appeared, had decided not to go ahead with an advent calendar of their own this year, and I for one was most disappointed.
I tweeted Sanctuary explaining my sadness at not being able to have a daily dose of their products in December this year and they told me that they did have a fantastic gift coming soon, which was as good as the advent calendar from last year.
Interest definitely piqued, I resumed my stalking of their website. I waited, and waited, and waited for what felt like forever until I had almost given up when it finally appeared in the last week of November and I snapped it up right away!
I have never been so excited for a beauty gift set in my life, but this one was pretty amazing! Very much like a beauty advent calendar, the box of treats contains 24 mini products from the Sanctuary range.
I decided to have a sneaky look at all of the items before closing the box and using it as a lucky dip as a take on the advent calendar… You’ll be pleased to hear I can confirm that there is not a packet of confetti in sight in this offering (the stars are my own)!
I love all of the items in the set, and I am really looking forward to using them all in the lead to Christmas.
Obviously it doesnt have to be used in this way, and as we are now halfway through the month, it would be totally acceptable to open the box and use all of the products at once (well maybe not all in one go, you would be covered head to toe), or I suppose you could be really nice and give it to somebody else as a Christmas gift…
This set was priced at £35 with free delivery (on all orders over £25). Unfortunately, since writing this post, it appears that Sanctuary have taken the set back off the website. Such a shame! I really would recommend their products as they are brilliant, but I am disappointed this set didn’t stay around long enough for others to purchase it…
I was in no way asked to write this post, I just wanted to spread the Sanctuary joy as I absolutely love this brand and think the gift was incredible.
