The Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021 launched back in early September, alongside a Boots Macmillan Men’s Advent Calendar too. When both calendars first launched, they were £85 each, but they’ve just been discounted by half price, which makes them a lot more reasonable.
“Wish upon a star and your dreams may just come true in the form of 24 beauty treats just in time for Christmas. This calendar won’t just help you look good, it’ll do good too as £2 from every one of these beauty calendars goes to Macmillan Cancer Support.“
The Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021 is now £42.50, and the value of the products inside is £137.57. Whilst this calendar was full price at £85, you were making a saving of £52.57, but now it’s half price, you’re making a saving of £95.05.
It’s a cardboard advent calendar, with 24 perforated doors and a botanical theme. It’s a completely cardboard and recyclable calendar, with no plastic, so it’s good to know it’s good for the environment.
Every sale of the Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021 will donate £2 to the Macmillan Cancer Charity. I think it’s great they’re making a donation, but this calendar has been £85 for one whole month, so £2 is a very small donation, compared to the price. Let’s take a look at what’s inside this calendar…
The first product in the Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021 is the Liz Earle EyeBright Soothing Eye Cleanser 50ml, worth £5.33.
Day number two is the Soap & Glory Bright & Beautiful Radiance Boosting Brightening Sheet Mask, and it’s a full-size sheet mask, and it’s worth £3.
The next item in the Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021 is the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream 15ml, worth £17.95, and it’s full size.

The third Liz Earle product inside the calendar is the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser 30ml, which comes with a Muslin Cloth.
For day 24 of the Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021, we have the YourGoodSkin ProVitamin Overnight Cream 50ml, which is full size and worth £6.
So that’s everything inside the Boots Macmillan 24 Beauty Treasures Advent Calendar 2021. You get a mix of skincare, makeup, bodycare and beauty tools too. For £45, it’s much better value than it was when it was full price, but there is an awful lot of repetition.
The beauty advent calendar arena is very competitive this year, and I’m just not wowed by this calendar, especially with such a small charitable donation. If I had to choose a calendar between this Boots calendar, or the Next calendar, it’d have to be the Next Advent Calendar, as it’s better value comparatively, as there’s no repetition, and you’re getting some really amazing brands.
