This year is the first year I've ever not had a chocolate advent calendar. Because I have something WAY cooler, that I will get to shortly, but I just have to share the advent calendar I got Stu. There are so many neat concepts for advent calendars for grown ups now!
Someone on my Facebook friends list shared a contest that The Chilli Jam Man were running for one of these advent calendars, and I had to get Stu it. I've bought chilli roulette type presents before and thought this sounded so fun and right up Stu's street.
The chocolates themselves are absolutely gorgeous. All beautiful colours and patterns, clearly expensive and very thoughtfully made. I thought they looked good on the website, but once I saw them in person I was blown away.
Of all the chocolates, 6 are chilli chocolates, and you have no idea which ones, hence the roulette! And given Stu's reaction to eating one of the chilli ones, which is not repeatable on this blog, they are very, very hot! Much fun for me watching!
I dropped major hints about this advent calendar on Facebook, and my Mum decided that we both needed it, yay! I've eyed up beauty advent calendars for a couple of years but haven't seen many cruelty free ones, but Makeup Revolution are a favourite of mine so this was meant to be.
The packaging is all rose gold and matte black, and it contains all full size products! All full size!
I saved the first 3 days to open and photograph (mostly because it's pitch black by the time I get home from work and therefore rubbish for photographing anything). The packaging is super secure, the products are not going anywhere, and it was actually kind of hard to get day 3 out of the packaging at all!
The first 3 days brought with them a peachy lipstick, a anti shine balm, and a fur-free makeup brush. I'm so excited to see what else there is in it! I'm sharing the goodies inside it every day on Snapchat, so add me under the name 'kittyrambles' to see what else is included.
Thanks to Momma Wood for my advent calendar! I'm looking forward to seeing Stu open his again haha.
Stu is shaving his beard for charity! Read more and sponsor him here
