L’Oréal/ Loose Button Advent Calendar Review:

Christmas is in 70 days, yes that’s right only 10 weeks to the day! I love everything about this holiday but one of my best memories as a child is having chocolate first thing in the morning. For the month of December I was given an Advent Calendar which was used to count down the day until Christmas. Starting on December 1st as each day passed you would get to peek behind a cardboard window and find some yummy chocolate behind it. They would have different shapes like a teddy bear, a Christmas Tree, an ornament, etc and as time went on those were replaced with theme advent calendars like Disney (so much cooler than when I was a child). I’m not going to lie, but by the 10th day or so I would have eaten all the chocolates already! I didn’t want my parents to know so I would just re-fold the windows back down for each day to make it look like they hadn’t been open. Pretty smart kid, no? 

My husband bought me an advent calendar a few years ago and looks like nothings changed since I was little; I think all the chocolates were gone by the 5th this time?

L’Oréal & Loose Button want to bring out the kids in us this holiday season with their version of a Advent Calendar and for $109 you too can get your very own L’Oréal/ Loose Button Advent Calendar.  

What’s better than chocolate? Deluxe Beauty Samples! Behind each window (24 in total) you will find deluxe sample from L’Oréal’s premium brands which include Lancôme, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani and SheUemura. You will get a total of 6 Fragrance, 9 Skin Care Products, 5 Eye Products and 3 Lip Products.
