It may only be October, but many retailers are already starting to get into the festive spirit.
While you may have to wait a bit longer to order your Christmas food shop or start gift-shopping, one key festive item that you can buy now is an advent calendar.
If it's a beauty advent calendar you're after, allow us to introduce you to one of the best-value-for-money offerings we've seen so far from LookFantastic.
The eagerly-awaited 2022 calendar is back after being a sell-out success in 2021 – and this year it’s a good'un. Behind each of the doors is a beauty treat from a whole host of luxury brands such as Elemis, Emma Hardie, ESPA and Rituals.
In fact, the calendar is jam packed with over £500 worth of products, which not only include a range of cosmetics and skincare. But also a couple of other well-curated self-care products including two candles, a soothing warming eye mask and Rituals Ayurveda mini reed diffuser. Just what you need for a little me time.
The calendar also includes some great items from independent brands, such as the Demi Candles, which have been created by a Manchester-based mother-of-two who crafts the candles by hand.
If you’re a beauty fan, there’s no denying the calendar is amazing value for money. Two of the most expensive items inside include the PMD Facial Cleansing Device worth £59 and a full-size ESPA Optimal Skin Pro Moisturiser worth £50.
Just those two products together retail for over £100, but you can get all 26 products in the carefully-curated calendar for only £95. Now that’s a real bargain.
