I have another advent calendar for you today, and it’s the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021. The Feelunique Beauty Advent Calendar launched on the 16th of August, but it launched on a pre-order basis, where you paid upfront, and it was then shipped on the 1st of December.
I missed out on last year’s Feelunique calendar, as I was gutted, so I wasn’t going to let that happen again this year, and I can’t wait to show you what’s inside this year’s calendar…
“Our legendary beauty advent calendar is back and (spoiler) it’s our best one yet. Worth over £385, this year’s edition is bursting with no less than 27 indulgent treats, offering a luxurious mix of new and iconic picks from the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Huda Beauty, Emma Hardie, ELEMIS and plenty more.“
The Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 is £119, and the contents inside the calendar are worth £385.20. This year’s Feelunique Advent Calendar is more expensive than last year’s calendar, which was £89, so the calendar has increased in price by £30.
The contents inside last year’s calendar were worth £275, so you’re getting £110 more value, so whilst the price did increase by £30, you’re getting more than £100 worth of value for the money, which I definitely appreciate.
The Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 features a chest design, with a forest green, burgundy and red colour scheme, with gold accents, and the drawers inside are blush pink, with day twenty five being burgundy.
I like the design, but the cardboard is a little flimsy, and when you’re pulling out the drawers, the drawers do get stuck quite easily, and the drawers don’t slide out as smoothly as other chest advent calendars.
I imagine, they’ve used matte paper as the outside coating on the drawers, so it can be recycled, but I needed to use two hands to pull out almost all of the drawers. Which isn’t an issue, but it’s something I wanted to mention, as this is a review after all.
OK, let’s get on to the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 unboxing and review..
The first product in the calendar is the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Deep Conditioning Treatment 40ml / 1.35 fl.oz. This product is a staple across all of the beauty advent calendars this year, and some calendars have included a tiny tube, so this 40ml size is actually quite generous.
It’s a hair treatment you can put on your hair, and leave it for up to 20 mins before rinsing, or apply it to the hair before bed, and leave it on overnight for a deep conditioning treatment. This 40ml size is worth £10.40.
Next is the tiniest sample of Charlotte Tilbury Magic Eye Rescue Eye Cream 3ml, and it’s said to help bright and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. This tiny jar is worth £8.40, so whilst it is very small, it’s still a high value sample.
The next item in the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 is the Tan Luxe Super Glow Hyaluronic Self-Tan Self Tan Serum 10ml, worth £11.66. It’s a gradual tan, which you apply with 2-12 drops to the face and décolleté daily, massaging into skin with circular motions, avoiding eyes.
The Sol de Janeiro Bom Dia Bright Cream 25ml is the next product, and this mini size is worth £6. This body butter only launched recently, so it’s exciting to have such a new launch included within the calendar.
One of the products I’m most looking forward to trying is the First Aid Beauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub 28.3g, worth £3.17. I’ve heard amazing things about this scrub, and it’s results on getting rid of keratosis pilaris, so I can’t wait to try it.
The next product in the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 is the Emma Hardie Protect & Prime SPF30 15ml, worth £13.80. This is a lightweight moisturiser offering UVA and UVB protection, whilst also hydrating and protecting the skin.
The Lixirskin Universal Emulsion Day Moisturiser, Night Cream, Serum Base In One 30ml is worth £8.70. This is a multi-tasking moisturiser, which claims to reactivates skin’s natural radiance and works to isolate skin to shield it from harmful UV rays and pollutants.
The next item in the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 is a beauty tool, and it’s the Delilah Eyeshadow Brush, which comes with a velvet sleeve and is worth £20. I’ve never tried any of the Delilah brushes before, but it’s so soft, and has a really nice shape which looks perfect for blending out eyeshadow.
Then we have the Prai Ageless Throat & Decolletage Cream 15ml, worth £7.50. I see a lot of hype surrounding this product, but it’s not one I’ve tried. It’s the brand’s bestselling product is your secret to a firmer, smoother, younger-looking neck and decolletage.
The Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 next contains the iconic NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil 30ml, worth £11.10. This oil smells incredible, and can be used on the face, body and hair. This isn’t one of the spray bottles, it’s a tip upside down bottle, but it’s such a beautiful oil.
The Medik8 Surface Radiance Cleanse Resurfacing AHA/BHA Mangosteen Cleansing Gel 40ml is next, and it’s worth £7. Medik8 is a super pricey skincare brand, so it’s exciting to have this chemical exfoliator facial cleanser inside the calendar.
Molton Brown feature heavily in the advent calendars, and the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 contains the Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower Gel 100ml, worth £7.33.
I feel sad that it’s always this one scent in every beauty box and advent calendar. Molton Brown have so many amazing fragrances, but this one is repeated by every brand. It smells nice, but they have lots of lovely scents which could be used…
Next is a makeup product, and it’s the Laura Mercier Rouge Essential Silky Lip Creme Stick in A La Rose 1.2g, worth £9.25. This shade A La Rose is a super bright and vibrant pink, which is very pretty, although a red shade would make more sense for a Christmas advent calendar.
The Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 next contains the Balance Me Vitamin C Repair Serum 7ml, worth £7.46. This is a powerful, lightweight serum that has been designed to intensely hydrate, plump and brighten your complexion, whilst helping to reduce pigmentation and uneven skin tone.
Next is the Grown Alchemist Enzyme Exfoliant 75ml, worth £52 (wow), and is a full size, and comes with its own box. It’s a gentle and completely granule-free exfoliant, formulated to even out skin tone and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This complex blend of fruit extracts noticeably hydrates facial skin, while gently dissolving dead skin cell bonds, resulting in enhanced cell renewal.
The one item I’m disappointed about is this, and it’s the Ahava Mineral Hand Cream 40ml, worth £5.99. I chose this hand cream in a Feelunique Pick ‘n Mix, and it smells absolutely vile. It smells like air freshener, and it’s so greasy, so this will be passed on to someone else, but it’s easily the foulest smelling hand cream I’ve ever tried, unfortunately.
The Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 next features a much more exciting product, and it’s the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm 15ml, worth £9.90. It’s such an iconic product, and is a multi-purpose skincare treat, helping to eliminate signs of fatigue in a flash! This beauty balm instantly moisturises, brightens and tightens facial contours so tired skin looks rested and relaxed.
From a skincare product to a haircare product and this is the Lazartigue Repair Hair Mask 50ml, worth £4. I’ve not come across this brand before, but it’s said to be an intensive repair mask, featuring vegetal keratin for damaged and sensitized hair.
If you find December to me stressful, the next product is perfect! It’s the Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Rollerball 10ml, worth £18. It’s a potent oil with a rollerball, which you can roll over your pulse points to allow you to experience the seriously relaxing and relaxing powers of vetivert, camomile and sandalwood for a restful night.
Then we have the Korres Wild Rose Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial 16ml, worth £15.56. It’s an overnight facial in a jar with Vitamin C and wild rose extract that improves dull, uneven tone and texture for brighter, smoother skin by morning.
This drawer of the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 features two products, and they’re both masks, with a mask for the face and a mask for the hair, which is such a cute idea. First is the We Are Paradoxx Repair Game Changer Hair Mask 75ml, worth £10.63, and we also got the Rodial Pink Diamond Lifting Sheet Mask worth £10.62. I love the idea of being able to use a face mask and a hair mask at the same time.
Next is another skincare product, and it’s the Filorga Scrub & Detox Intense Purity Foam Exfoliator 15ml, worth £9.90. It features detoxifying polyphenols and active charcoal help to relieve the skin from stress, leaving the complexion radiant, and the skin texture is refined, the skin is smoother, and the complexion is pure and luminous.
Another skincare product, and it’s the Elemis Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream 15ml, worth £29.70. It’s only a small tube, but the full size is £99, so this small tube still gives you £29.70 of product, and it’s luxury, moisture rich night cream, which is clinically proven to help increase oxygen levels in your skin and assist the skin’s natural regeneration process.
The next item in the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 is the By Terry Baume de Rose Liquid Lip Balm 2.3g, worth £11.17. This is such a beautiful lip balm, in a glossy format, which deeply conditions and softens the lips, with a subtle powdery rose scent.
Finally, it’s day 25, and we get two products, which is very exciting. They’re both from Huda Beauty, with the Huda Beauty Rich Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette worth £29, and the Wishful V Chin Lift Mask worth £8.
The palette is amazing, and such a great product to get on the last day. I haven’t tried the Wishful Chin Lift Mask, but I love the eye masks, so I imagine the chin one will be just as impressive, and it’s such a nice way to end the calendar. I hate it when brands put a really lacklustre product on the last day, but this is a great drawer for Christmas Day.
So, that’s the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021 and all twenty five products inside. It’s such an amazing calendar, and the value is definitely there. I do have to mention how skincare heavy it is, as it’s very much a skincare calendar, with the odd piece of makeup and haircare.
There’s a total of nineteen skincare products, out of twenty seven, and that’s too much in my opinion. There’s only a few makeup products, and two haircare products, so you’re only going to appreciate this calendar if you like skincare, as it means everyday is skincare except on eight days which is kinda crazy.
Especially with the amount of repetition of serums, masks and exfoliators. If you want to get your hands on the Feelunique Advent Calendar 2021, it’s still available at the time of posting this review, and it’s available right here
