Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 Review

Today is the official start of my festive content, which will be staggered over the next few months. October is literally days away, and I can’t wait to share lots of amazing Christmas sets and gifts with you.

The Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 was something I bought the minute I saw it on sale within the UK, and I’ve also purchased a couple of other beauty advents to showcase here on my blog in the coming weeks.

I’ve already done an unboxing on the epic Lookfantastic Advent Calendar 2020, but this is all about the budget friendly Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020.

Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 Review

Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020

The Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 is only £19.99 which I think is amazing for an advent calendar. Many brands charge £20, and fill the calendar with gimmicky fillers such as hair scrunchies and hair ties, but this advent calendar is a fantastic deal.

It’s different to other advent calendars which feature perforated doors or drawers, because the Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 comes in a big box, with a sheet of numbered stickers from one to twenty four, as well as twenty four cute paper bags in four different designs.

With the Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020, you’re getting to choose which products you want for each day, and you simply put the product in one of the paper bags, and then add a number sticker to say which date of Advent the product will be for.

I think this particular format is great if you’re doing an advent for another person as a gift, as you can customise the products and surprise them each day.

As a blogger, I purchased the Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 because for £19.99, you’re getting 24 Essence products, which I can then review on my blog, so that’s potentially 24 blog posts worth of content for £20 – working out at 83 pence per product – amazing or what?

I’m not going to number up the bags, as I’m going ton start testing the products, but for £20 it’s an amazing calendar, and wait until you see what’s inside.

I am going to be sharing the contents inside the Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 from this point onwards. If you don’t want to know what’s inside this calendar, please don’t read past this point to avoid any spoilers.

The Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020 comes in a red and white striped box, with the 24 products loose inside alongside the 24 paper gift bags and the sticker sheet.

What impressed me the most with this Essence DIY Advent Calendar 2020, is that it has full sized products with maybe only one or two ‘filler’ type gifts. Essence did this style of advent calendar last year, but it sold out before I could purchase it, so I wasn’t going to make that mistake again…
