Aldi Wine Advent Calendar - £49.99
This contains 24 bottles of a mixture of wines; red, white, rose, and fizz included. There are 20 x 187ml bottles and 4 x 200ml bottles. Highlights include the Calvet Côtes de Provence Rosé and the Calvet Limited Edition Merlot.

Is it worth the money?
100% this is such an amazing find if you can get your hands on one! They are in store only so you may need to check a few of your stores as they go quick. This is another good alcohol advent for a party or for a Christmas get together. If you are particular to wine you get a good mix with this but if you are one type of wine only then I'm afraid this won't be for you.

As always I will be reviewing a multitude of different Calendars this year. If there are any you'd like me to review catch me on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #CalendarCountdown.

How is it different to last years advent?
This is the first year Lancome has produced an exclusive advent with Boots. I was very surprised this was released as Selfridges have a L'Oreal Luxe advent exclusive to them. There are 15 products that are the same between the two yet this advent is £25.00 cheaper.

Is it worth the money?
Compared to the Selfridges calendar this is a much better price for an advent with Lancome products. You are actually getting your moneys worth and it features less perfume for those who want skincare and cosmetics only. I'd look into whether you'd get use out of all the product first as with Lancome I find the skincare and cosmetic target audiences conflicting.

How is it different to last years advent?
I remember looking through the advents under Boots last year and being so disappointed that Sleek hadn't yet jumped on the Bandwagon. This year I was ecstatic to see this in the Boots Catalogue. Sleek are a personal favourite for Liquid Lips & Eyeshadow and when I saw the contents for this advent I was so shocked at the variety for the amount.

Is it worth the money?
100% This is £35 for some of their best selling Matte Liquid Lips, 3 palettes and more! I love that it is also on the 3 for 2 offer, if you have more than one loved one in mind to buy for or you have other gifts to get you'll get a great saving too. I am so impressed with this advent that I'm excited for next years.

How is it different to last years advent?

I cannot find a 24 day advent for last year, only the 12 days one. This release is completely different to the other advent as it primarily focuses on the Cosmetics side of the brand. The Christmas Lights print is gorgeous and again really reflects Christmas without it being too obvious with print or colour scheme.

Is it worth the money?
Yes, Yes, Yes! This is a another great introduction to beginners as a lot of cosmetic advent calendars can be too involved with products for contouring and highlighting. I would suggest around 11 years up for this just because of the Nail Polish but it would be lovely to see a young girl collect a new product everyday up to Christmas to create their very own Christmas Day & New Years makeup look.
