The Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 launched a couple of weeks ago, and I decided to get my hands on it, as I’ve never had a Clinique beauty advent calendar before. I have no idea why I’ve never entertained the idea of having a Clinique calendar before, but their calendars always kinda slipped under my radar.
I’m a really big fan of Clinique as a brand, with love for their makeup, skincare and fragrance, so I was excited to see what their advent calendar was like, especially as my news post on the calendar got so many views.
So keep on reading for my unboxing, review and swatches of everything inside the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021…
“Enjoy our best of skin care and makeup with this 24-piece advent calendar gift set, including 3-Step skin care, award-winning moisturisers, best-selling makeup and fragrance as well as our cult-favourite makeup remover, and more. It’s the ultimate Christmas countdown with 24 travel-sized minis behind every door and at a great value worth £220.“
This year’s advent calendar has a completely cardboard design, with a red and white swirled candy design on the front, and twenty-four perforated doors inside. It’s great that the calendar is cardboard, as it’s more eco-friendly, and keep on reading to see what’s inside the calendar…
Day one of the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 features the Clinique Moisture Surge Eye 96-Hour Hydro-Filler Concentrate 5ml.
Next is the Clinique All About Clean 2-in-1 Cleansing and Exfoliating Jelly, 30ml.
We then have one of my favourite Clinique products, and it’s the Clinique Moisture Surge 100-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator 30ml. This is a generous size too, this 30ml size is worth £25, which is amazing.
Next in the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 is the Clinique 7 Day Scrub Rinse-Off Cream Formula 30ml.
We then have our first makeup product, and it’s the Clinique Blushing Blush Powder in the shade Precious Posy, in a 3.1g size. This size is just over half the size of a full-size blush, and this shade is a shade from their permanent range.
It’s such a beautiful blusher. I love the Clinique Cheek Pop Blushers, but I haven’t tried their other blush formulas in a long time, but the quality of this formula is so impressive. It’s smooth, pigmented and has a gorgeous golden shimmer shift.
Next in the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021, we have the Clinique Deep Comfort Hand and Cuticle Cream 30ml. This is one of the products I was most looking forward to trying, as it’s a product I’ve never tried from Clinique, and I love a good hand cream.
Another makeup product is next, and it’s the Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense Retractable Eyeliner, in the shade 09 Intense Ebony. It’s not a full size, but it’s a decent size, and it’s a matte black shade.
The next product in the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 is the Clinique All About Clean Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser 30ml.
We then have the Clinique Pop Splash Lip Gloss + Hydration in the shade Air Kiss, in a 1.8g size. It’s the prettiest, shimmery pale peach shade, and has such a nice, comfortable and non-sticky formula.
The next item in the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021, is actually a trio. It’s three sachets of the Clinique Fresh Pressed Renewing Powder Cleanser. The full size of this product includes seven sachets, so you’re getting almost half the full size, and three day’s worth of treatments.
We then have the Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in the shade 07 Super Strawberry. It’s a pretty pink shade, to complement the shade of the blusher within the calendar.
The Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 next features another lip product, with two in a row, and it’s the Clinique Pop Lip Colour + Primer Lipstick in the shade 13 Love Pop, in a 2.3g mini size.
In the bullet, it looked a bit unlike anything I’d enjoy, as it’s a shimmery raspberry shade. The shimmer however, doesn’t translate onto the lips. Instead, it just looks glossy and shiny, and I already love the formula of this lipstick range.
Next up in the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 is the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask in a 7ml mini size. This mask is my holy grail face mask. I cannot rave about it enough, it’s a miracle worker for dry skin, so I do wish there was a bigger tube.
Then we have the Clinique Smart Night Custom Repair Moisturizer in a 7ml size. I’ve never tried this moisturiser before, but I’ve never been disappointed by any Clinique skincare products before, so I’m looking forward to trying it.
Next is the Clinique Moisture Surge Lip Hydro-Plump Treatment in a 7ml size. This is the only product I’ve tried from the Moisture Surge collection, so I’m very happy I’m going to be able to try it, and see what the formula is like.
Day one of the calendar featured the Hydrating Supercharge Concentrate for the eyes, and now we have the face version. It’s the Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate in a 15ml size.
We then have a fragrance, and it’s the Clinique Aromatics Elixir Perfume Spray in a 4ml size. I love the Aromatics Black and Aromatics White fragrances from Clinique, and the original Aromatics fragranced used to be one of my late mum’s favourites, so it’s nice to be able to smell it again.
I don’t think any Clinique advent calendar would be complete without the next product, and it’s the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+ in a 30ml size.
Next in the calendar is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes and Lips. It’s a 30ml size, and it’s a great bi-phase makeup remover, which removes even the most stubborn waterproof mascaras.
Then we have a full-size Clinique Blush Brush, which we can used with the beautiful blusher we got earlier on in the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021. It has a clear acrylic handle, a silver metal ferrule and super soft bristles. It’s denser than most blush brushes, but the density makes application quite quick and easy, and the fact it’s full size is fab!
I’m loving how many skincare products there are in the calendar, and this time it’s another product for the eyes. It’s the Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream, in a 5ml size. I like that you can use this cream with the concentrate earlier on in the calendar, for extra hydration around the eyes.
I think this product is the only one I wouldn’t use myself, and it’s the Clinique All About Clean Liquid Facial Soap Mild in a 30ml size. I’ve tried this liquid soap before, and it was very drying on my skin, but my skin is super sensitive, but most people would be absolutely fine with it. It’s a shame they didn’t swap this product with their cleansing balm instead, as we do have a few liquid cleansers in the calendar.
The Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 next features one of my personal favourite Clinique products, and it’s the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2, in a 60ml size. It’s an amazing exfoliative toner, and it’s my go-to whenever my skin’s feeling particularly rough or textured.
For day 24, we have the Clinique Lash Power Mascara in the shade 01 Black Onyx, and it’s a 6ml tube. The full size is 10ml, so it’s just over half a full-size tube, but it’s still a great product to get on Christmas Eve.
So that’s the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 completely unboxed and swatched for you. I am so impressed over all. Especially when you consider the quality of the products, the decent sizes and the mix of skincare, makeup, bodycare and fragrance.
When you compare it to the Boots Macmillan Calendar which is £85, it’s crazy how much better the Clinique 24 Days Of Clinique Advent Calendar 2021 is, and it’s only £10 more, so to me, it’s a no brainer and is a much better beauty advent calendar, and is available right now.
