Battle of the Beauty Advent Calendars: Soap & Glory!

SoooOooooO, as a consumer of beauty Advent Calendars, I ALWAYS want to know the best calendars of the year. After much researching, I thought I should just review them myself! I'm going to be doing a series of the best advent calendars of 2019 - some I will just research to find out what's included, if they're all sample items and if they're worth getting, and some I will have purchased myself to review! I'm planning to do this way ahead of Christmas time, to give you plenty of time to figure out which ones are worth purchasing!
That being said, please let me know if there's a specific advent calendar you'd like me to review!
The first calendar I'll be reviewing is the 'Miracle on 24th Sweet' Calendar by Soap & Glory! This was kindly gifted to me by Soap & Glory, but of course all reviews are my own!

I want each review to follow the same format so this is how it'll go. The reviews will go like this!
- 24 or 25 boxes?
- Price
- Value of the box
- How many sample sized items vs full sized items, including a list of items.
- Opinions on the calendar
- Worth purchasing
- Spoilers! Images of what's in the box.


So let's begin! 

24 or 25 Boxes? This one's pretty self explanatory - it comes with 24 boxes. 

Price? This calendar is priced at £42! 

Value of Box? I can't find this information anywhere! So hey, I've calculated it myself. Please note, I tried my hardest with mathematical equations to work out what value this box may have. Some are limited edition that they don't sell so this was VERY hard, and this is just an estimate, not an exact value: £90.96
(I have broken down the prices below) 




Here's what the inside of the box looks like btw! 

How many sample size vs how many full size, including a list of items included: I've tried to work this out to the best of my ability, and also have broken down my reasonings below.

14 mini sizes vs 12 full size products! 

CLEAN ON ME 3X2 = 6 (MINI) 
RIGHTEOUS BODY BUTTER 200ML: £6 (MINI) 
THE SCRUB OF YOUR LIFE 200ML: £7 (FULL SIZE) 
HAND FOOD: £5.50 (FULL SIZE) 
HEEL GENIUS: £5.50 (FULL SIZE) 
DRY SHAMPOO £4 (FULL SIZE) 
SUGAR CRUSH FRESH AND FOAMY BODY WASH £2 (MINI) 
SUGAR CRUSH BODY BUTTER CREAM £2 MINI 
SUGAR CRUSH HAND FOOD £2.50 MINI 
BEST WASHES BODY WASHES (can’t find as limited edition) roughly £2.50 (mini) 
BUTTER BE GOOD (can’t find as limited edition) roughly £3 (MINI) 
Rose petals (limited edition) x 2 = Roughly £3 = £6
 FIZZ A BALL = £2 x 2 = £4 (mini)
VITAMIN C FACIAL WASH  £2.29 (MINI) 
BRIGHT + BEAUTIFUL RADIANCE MASK: £3 
PUFFY EYE ATTACK MASK £3.50 (full size) 
SPEED PLUMP MASK £3.50 (full size) 
SEXY MOTHER PLUCKER LIP GLOSS £9 X2 = £18 (full size) 
Eyes cream x 1 = £4.67 (mini) 


Opinions on the Calendar 
I've been going back and forth working out if this calendar is good value for money. My outcome is that it is worth it. Firstly, the value is around £91 - which is amazing, but what threw me off for a while was how there were (a few more) minis than full sizes. That being said, the value was still very high for the amount you pay AND I realised, that I was actually happier with the mini sized body butters in different scents. Imagine having 12 full size body butters? I don't think I'd EVER get through them, haha. 
But also, the full size products are products you would WANT in a full size, i.e. the dry shampoo! The scrub! The masks! & let us not forget the lip glosses. 
Overall, I think there is an absolute great variety in products, and a great way to try the S+G range! 
Can I also add, that although they don't sell them 'rose petals' individually, I LOVE THEM. 

Worth Purchasing? If you want a one branded advent calendar, yes!

I thought I'd leave this to the end because those who don't want to see exactly what's behind each door can skip this part. For those who love a good spoiler, enjoy!





Let me know if you have any questions! 

p.s. next I'll be reviewing the Glossybox calendar!
