The Advent Calendar of Wishes & Wonders set comes beautifully packed in a large, green box with cute festive pop-up illustrations. Each beauty treat comes wrapped in a small gift box and stacked inside the cardboard drawers. The treats have numbers and feature facts about the brand’s Community Fair Trade partners or an act of kindness to share the wonder beyond.
The Advent Calendar of Wishes & Wonders consists of 25 head-to-toe self-care and beauty indulgences made with hardworking, change-making, and natural-origin ingredients. This year, the calendars will also celebrate the brand’s Community Fair Trade partners that helped create these products.

I have always liked the idea of Advent Calendars ❤️! Isn’t it great to receive a gift box filled with surprising beauty treats during the festive season?

Oh, I can imagine their faces brimming with joy and excitement 😍!

My Thoughts (Review of The Wishes & Wonders Advent Calendar 2023)-
This ultimate Advent calendar houses 25 head-to-toe treats, including full-sized iconic bestsellers, handy beauty tools, and the most-loved self-care products to pamper your body and soul this Christmas 2023.
The Advent Calendar of Wishes & Wonders currently retails for £145 at the store and official website. However, the total value of this calendar is worth £250, which means you are saving almost £105 on this beauty calendar this year 😃!
If you go through the products list above, you may notice this Advent Calendar of Wishes & Wonders contains maximum full-size products and only a few travel-sized items. From facial cleansers to body butter, hair cleanser, and conditioner to calming pillow mist, the calendar has it all! Moreover, each treat wrapped in gift paper, on its own, makes for the perfect stocking filler or a Secret Santa surprise gift for your loved ones!
I am highly pleased with the Wishes & Wonders Advent calendar, as it has some of my favorites and a few products I have been eyeing for a long time! I agree there are two items from the same category, like liquid peels (cleansers), body wash or moisturizers, lip balms, etc. But that’s fine with me, as I believe it also gives us an opportunity to try out the other variants! The best part is most products are geared toward the dry skin. During winters our skin becomes dry and dull! No worries, these products will take care of this issue as well ❤️! I just wish this calendar had a face moisturizer for us. That way, it would have been a complete beauty regime package!
Makeup lovers would be disappointed with this year’s Advent calendars, as none feature a makeup item! The brand has designed the calendars keeping skincare addicts in mind, I believe. Hence, if you or your loved one is a beauty enthusiast, especially a skincare lover, you’ll love this Advent Calendar of Wishes & Wonders 😍.
I have been using The Body Shop® beauty products for the past 8-9 years, and I must admit, some products are pricey. Hence, I always wait for a good sale to grab my beauty faves from the store or website. Enter the Advent Calendars! They are not only bursting with surprising and change-making beauty indulgences with purpose, but they offer great value, too! You can get your favorites or limited edition beauty or products from your wish list inside three different calendars, and that too at a great discounted price ❤️.
Overall, the Advent Calendar of Wishes & Wonders is total value for money. Get it now before it is gone!
Also, do not forget to use my personal code – AFFENCHANTING at the checkout to get 20% OFF when you shop at The Body Shop site. However, this code won’t work on the Advent Calendars 😐!
