The Body Shop 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar, 25 Days of Deluxe Advent Calendar and 25 days Ultimate Advent Calendar
No ultimate beauty Christmas advent calendar guide 2017 could be complete without a Body Shop calendar in there.You even get a choice between 3 of them!

Last but by no means least is the 25 Days Ultimate Advent Calendar. This is jam-packed with some of the body shop well-known products. It costs £99 and has a value of £214. Check it out HERE.
The difference between the three is product contents and sizes the products contained within. It will come down to product preference. For me the 25 Days Ultimate Calendar is the business!
