Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques 2020 Advent Box (Unboxing All 12 Days!)

I was so excited to receive the new Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques 2020 Advent Box in the mail last week -- honestly, I think it was the most fun I’ve had opening a package in a good while!  I’m a Lauren Brooke affiliate, which means that I periodically receive products to share on Instagram, but I’m under no obligation to post about them here on the blog.  No one at Lauren Brooke HQ has any idea that I’m writing this blog post, but, as soon as I received the Advent Box, I knew I had to share it ASAP, and also that I didn’t want to be limited to just the constraints of an Instagram caption.  

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques, if you aren’t already familiar with the brand, makes natural and cruelty-free products with food-grade, organic ingredients.  Everything is handcrafted in the USA, and the company aims for skincare and makeup that is not only non-toxic and free from harmful chemicals, but that also nourishes you through your skin.  

The 2020 Advent Box ($45.00 USD) contains a mix of core Lauren Brooke products, new launches, and seasonal limited edition products, scents, and colours. It has a total retail value of $145 and is nicely curated to include products that would work for just about anyone -- from the green beauty newbie to the seasoned connoisseur.  And, the number of new and limited editions picks means that it would be mostly new goodies for an established Lauren Brooke shopper too!

Close out now if you don’t want to see the contents of the box!

The 2020 Advent Box contains:
  1. Sweet Chai Lip Scrub & Vanilla Bean Lip Masque (limited edition)
  2. Botanical Colour Stick in Honey Blossom (limited edition colour)
  3. Body Illuminator in Rose Gold (limited edition)
  4. Organically Clear Blemish Control Spot Treatment (new product)
  5. Botanical Lip Gloss in Blackberry (new colour) and Peppermint Ice (limited edition colour)
  6. Eye Firming Crème
  7. Lip Expressions in Cheerful Cherry and Merry Mojito (new product)
  8. Crème Eyeshadow in Roasted Chestnut (limited edition colour)
  9. Body Glitter in Golden Sparkle (limited edition)
  10. Organic Intensive Skin Therapie
  11. Cinnamon & Spice Lip Plumper (limited edition)
  12. Intensive Immortal Elixir

The three products I’m most excited for are the limited edition Crème Eyeshadow, whose formula I’m already a big fan of, the Organic Intensive Skin Therapie, which promises to be a perfect winter cuticle treatment, and the Botanical Colour Stick, which looks like it will make a beautiful cream blush.  I’m also very happy to have more of the new Lip Expressions in my life -- I fell hard for these beautiful, lightly tinted lip treatments earlier this fall.

The box has a good mix of makeup and skincare, and the makeup items are fairly universal shades that I think would suit most skin tones.  Almost everything is a mini/travel size, but they’re generously sized minis, large enough to give you a good feel for each product, so I do think the value, price-wise, is there as well.

The Advent Box came beautifully packaged (ready to gift!), and makes for a wonderful unboxing experience, whether your recipient chooses to open one box per day, or all 12 at once, like I did.  The box includes a card with descriptions of each product, and full ingredients for everything can be found on the Lauren Brooke website. Some products were switched around in number in my box from the order that they appear on the included card, but, honestly, I thought the mystery just added another level of fun to the whole advent experience.

The Bottom Line
I loved it! A really well executed box in all ways -- beautiful packaging, a great assortment of products, and excellent value for money.  All in all, I think the Advent Box would make a lovely holiday treat, either for yourself or a lucky someone else.
