Benefit Advent Calendar Day 22

Today I received


Mascara which is the second mascara in the benefit advent calendar but it’s a good size so I am happy.



I also received a reply from benefit and I am very happy with there reply and have forwarded on my address so we will wait and see below is the reply I received.

Hello Carol

I have been forwarded your email by our Website Customer Care Team and I am so sorry for your disappointment with the Advent Calendar you purchased recently – it is such a shame this year that the inclusion of the six non-Benefit products have caused dissatisfaction amongst our customers. I am sure you will know that this wasn’t our intention… We don’t manufacture the products here or ‘assemble’ the Calendar in the UK, so we can only apologise on behalf of the Product Design Team in the States for seemingly being the Christmas Grinch this year! I hope we can help ‘save Christmas’ by sending you some extra Benefit minis to make up for the non-Benefit items and if this is acceptable please let me have your address details so we can get sending?

I have listed below the actual products included in the Calendar with their value per grms or mls so that hopefully you will see from this that despite the hair ties and pads etc, there really was some product value to the Benefit Calendar this year and hope to hear from you again soon. If there is anything more we can do to help, please just let me know.

      1. It would certainly seem that way… I must admit I wasn’t blown away by some of the other bloggers reactions to the products. However they’re kind enough to address it so can’t be bad to that eh? 🙂 x
