Boots Wizarding World Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2019 Review

The Wizarding World Harry Potter Advent calendar costs £35 from Boots. I can’t find any info on if it’s cruelty-free and while none of the ingredients is not vegan, a few flags as probably not. If you’re vegan, I’d pass to be on the safe side.

It goes without saying at this point, there are spoilers ahead.

Alohomora!’ No need to use the ‘Unlocking Charm’ for these doors. Avoid any disappointment by opening the doors on the right day to discover a HARRY POTTER™ gift.

The inside of it looks like this. It is cute and rose gold which is still very much in fashion. The calendar feels nice and weighty. There is a good range of products in this, enough to keep your Harry Potter fan going for the next year.

The door numbers don’t quite match up with the house colours which is good, so you’re not sure what you’re going to get exactly. The shapes do pretty much give it away though. So you know, it might have made more sense to make the House colours match-up given the doors do.

The calendar contains 5 mini bath bombs, 4 mini hand creams, 4 mini lipsticks, 4 mini bath essences, 4 nail polishes, 1 face mask, 1 keyring, and one eyeshadow brush.

There are two slight negatives to this calendar. The first is how many bath products there are. 9 in total which isn’t great if you don’t have a bath. The other is if you got most of the collection last year you’ll most likely have some of these still.

House Bath Fizzers

I like these. They’ve all got a pleasant smell and despite being small do a full bath. They colour the water well and don’t stain. On negative is they do colour the water the same as the house colour. Hufflepuff is yellow so…. I really wish you could get the house ones separately. I’d buy a bunch of the Slytherin one.

House Hand Creams

These are the same fragrances as last year. They sink in fast and smell nice. They’re also a decent size for something described as mini. Perfect handbag size really.

House Lipsticks

These are slightly different from last year in packaging and result. My original set from last year had what I think was wax bloom on the bullet after 6 months, so make sure you store these in a cool dry place.
They’re still very sheer but I do like that this year there’s more of a noticeable difference between the lipsticks.

House Bath Essence

These bubbles up nicely but don’t colour the bath in the same way as the bath fizzers.

House Nail Polishes

These are exactly the same as last year, down to the horrible Hufflepuff crackle polish. I did a review here.

Face Mask

Day-24-Harry-Potter-Advent-Calendar-2019-Face-Mask

The face mask is fairly thin. I’m not sold on this, it doesn’t cut out much light. it’s quite thin and flimsy.

Hogwarts Keyring

Day-11-Harry-Potter-Advent-Calendar-2019-Hogwarts-Keyring

I really like this. It’s rose gold and the embossing is nice. It’s not perfect but it’s defined.

Harry Potter Eyeshadow Brush

Day-02-Harry-Potter-Advent-Calendar-2019-Blender-Brush

The shade is that of Harry’s wand and the brush end is a round shadow brush. It’s not the perfect blending brush but will do it well. This one will be good for getting the colour on your eyes.

Harry-Potter-Brush-Compared

It’s similar to the brush in last years set but the brush itself was more rounded last year.

It’s not worth the full price if you’ve still got some of these from last year. It is, however, a nice Harry Potter treat for every day until Christmas.

If you’d like one of these you can get it from Boots. The price is very subject to change. This year they keep switching from the 3 for 2 discount to others. So look out for the best price for you!
