YOU Beauty Discovery Advent Calendar Day 1 & 2

I was so excited to open my YOU Beauty Discovery Advent Calendar*, I managed to wait until December 1st to open my first door (It took lots of willpower not to open them all). Here is what’s behind doors 1 & 2.

Advent Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask Sisley Face Mask

Behind door 1 is this gorgeous Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask 10ml – this luxurious mask is perfect for people with tired, dull, sallow skin. It’s a rich treatment that will plump skin and keep it looking refreshed and energised. I think this sounds like the perfect morning after the night before’s party! I have never tried anything from Sisley but I know it is a very luxurious and expensive skincare brand, I am excited to try this out. The full size of this mask is £93 for 60ml.

Caudalie Hand Cream

Behind door number 2 is this lovely Limited Edition Caudalie Hand & Nail Cream in Blackcurrent Leaf 30ml. It smells lovely and fruity. I have used Caudalie hand creams before and really like them. This will be going straight in to my handbag. This is a full size product & costs £6.

I am pleased with the first two products & excited for the rest. The YOU Beauty Discovery Advent Calendar is £49.95 but is worth over £240 if you’d like to treat yourself to one they’re still for sale here.

Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.

    Ohhh I’m so sorely tempted! I’ve heard there are some amazing products in there that I’m dying to try but I’m just not sure I can justify the £50 price tag! It’d be lovely to see what else is in it though, are you planning on doing daily/weekly posts about it?

      I think every couple of days. But I am travelling to Scotland on the 20th so I might have to club a few together at that point x

    Amazing!! I bought this for my best friend but couldn’t afford to get myself one too, so I’m eagerly awaiting her text each day to show me what she’s got lol. I hope Santa rewards my self sacrifice ;) These two products look amazing, I hope they continue to be that good! x

      It is so lovely. The packaging is luxurious & from what I have heard & seen the products are amazing. I hope you get yours quickly x

    Oooh fabness already x

  7. Such lovely goodies, looks like on of the best beauty ones I’ve seen. You’re being very good opening them on the right days…I am impressed!

  8. This looks like such an amazing advent calendar if the first two days are anything to go by! Sisley is SUCH an expensive skin care brand so to even try one of their masks would be a luxe treat. The Caudalie cream is also a relatively generous size and sounds yummy :)

    I’m loving it so far, can’t wait to start using my things :)

    It does look like a fab box, but I have spent soooo much lately that I can’t spend any more :)

    I will enviously be waiting for the next installments of the advent calender :)

    Ohh I’m super jealous! Both things look super lovely, looking forward to seeing what’s behind the other doors! xo

    Ooh this looks fab. I do like a good advent calendar! I have the Yankee Candle advent calendar this year and I love it, but this one looks just as good!

  16. Great finds! I just got the Caudalie hand creams and they’re lovely.
    Unfortunately no beauty Advent calendar for me this year. I really wanted the Body shop one but TBS Italy decided not to sell it here because it’s too expensive. Bummer!
