    I like Clinique products but will not buy because it only has 10 products. There is something not quite right about an advent calendar that does not have at least the 12 Days of Christmas or traditional 24 item Avent Calendar.

    • Emily

      Actually if you look on the website they have 24 items.

      • Brandy

        when i get a chance i’ll add the clinique 24 item calendar to the list. they originally released one that was only 10 items here and saved the 24 item one for the overseas market, but decided to release it here too! yay for us!

    I wasn’t going to look because I love my L’ooci Advent Calendar. Then I was going to look but not order. I clicked on the Decleor link because I am unfamiliar with their products. It’s natural aromatherapy skincare! I had to order one once I saw they accept PayPal.

    • Brandy

      Ooooooh! Sounds fantastique! I’m saving myself for Liberty London!
