For beauty lovers, the release of the Miin Cosmetics advent calendar is always an event. This year’s edition is no different, and it’s already getting a lot of buzz thanks to its beautiful design and generous selection of products. But is it really worth the hype? In this post, I’ll take a closer look at the contents of the calendar and see if it’s worth your hard-earned cash.
Keep on reading for an honest review of the Miin Cosmetics Beauty Advent Calendar of 2022.
Miin Cosmetics Beauty Advent Calendar 2022 Delivery
I ordered my beauty calendar from the Spanish website as that is the one that ships internationally. The calendar was supposed to be delivered starting the 12th of September for anyone who placed an order and that is exactly when I received it.
The calendar took around 4 working days for the advent calendar to travel across Europe. It was shipped out via DHL but it switched to a local courier firm that has a partnership with DHL once it reached the local border.
The delivery was smooth and I was quite surprised that the calendar arrived on the first day it was supposed to be delivered. I had thought until that point that the 12th of September was the first day they would start shipping them out. Otherwise, I was not surprised by the quality and speed of delivery as I never had any issues with Miin in the past and they do tend to move rather fast.
Miin Cosmetics Beauty Advent Calendar Box
The beauty advent calendar from Miin is housed in a huge drawer-like box. Well, it is big for a drawer is what I mean. The box itself is not huge-huge, but it is significantly bigger than expected and especially when compared to that of the 2021 edition. The products are housed inside the drawer in individual boxes with cute messages on them. The messages are written in English and Korean on the front and on the back, they have been translated into other local languages for the countries in which Miin has stores (Spain, France etc).
The calendar box, especially the bit in which the drawer goes into is absolutely beautiful and dreamy. It looks like one of those pinkish, purple sunsets and the intensity of color varies, making the colors flow more naturally. I am truly in love with the box.
The calendar box and the drawer inside of it can be used together, but you can also reuse both bits individually to store stuff. The other box in particular makes for a great magazine organizer IMO.
Personally, I decided to use them together aka a box with a drawer for now and started placing all my Korean Beauty products inside, particularly the smaller items and sheet masks. The colors go perfectly with the ones in the room in which I will keep my calendar box and the coloring of this calendar is right up my alley, maybe with a small exception of the faint salmon pink which I am not that fond of. Luckily that color is most;y on the drawer so at one point I can give up the actual drawer… we shall see. One thing is certain though and that is that I will definitely reuse this calendar box for years to come.

Content-wise, I am happy with the products I received. I know that initially, I was a bit upset about the Miin Exclusives, but now I am feeling a bit better about them, particularly the cotton pads.
It is quite funny that I never had any washable cotton pads for makeup removal til now and I ended up with two sets in the span of one month give or take. Well, at least this set from Miin comes in a pouch that allows the pads to dry but also one in which I can easily wash them. The headband I do continues to think is rather unnecessary, particularly since it is an elastic one and one with a twist at the front. It does not seem like the easiest option so I might just give it away at some point.
I also noticed the inclusion of a rather large number of cleansers. I know that cleansing is very important in any skincare routine and in particular in a Korean Beauty one, but it does feel a bit excessive to include 4-5 cleansers. On the other hand, I do not think there are any toners.
You do get pretty much everything you need for a complete routine, but toner is missing as far as I can tell. The calendar does include a hydrating mist which I do need to look more into, but I would have loved to see an actual toner included.
Size-wise, the products come in alright sizes with a few exceptions. One product that caught my eye here is not one that comes in full-sized even though such products do exist, but one that comes in a small size and not even travel size, and it is included towards the end of the countdown. Now that was a bit disappointing, at least it was until I realized that the Miin Cosmetics advent calendar does not seek to impress but rather introduce its audience to some of the best Korean Beauty products the retailer carries as well as get people to fall in love with the huge variety of products and ingredients in this beauty space.
I love it. I truly love the Miin Cosmetics Beauty Advent Calendar and think it was one of the best decisions I could have made this year. Even if I do not end up getting any other calendar this year, I am more than happy with the new products I get to try. And if things go as well as they have with the Jeju pouch I got from the retailer just a few days ago, well I can start wiring my paycheck directly into Miin’s account.
Cannot wait to review all the products from this calendar for you and to explore more from Miin in the future. Miin Cosmetics is quickly becoming one of my favorite Korean Beauty retailers and I think it has everything to do with their focus on quality over quantity.
