Advents calendars are one of my favourite things about Christmas. You get a surprise every single day for almost a month; traditionally, it’s a box of chocolates but recently, fashion and beauty brands have upped the creativity ante and designed boxes filled with beauty goodies that would make a girl so much happier than a boxful of chocolates (most of which are terrible and filled with raspberry sauce). Right?
Beauty advent calendars can go up to £400 and further, but we believe in beauty within budget, so have rounded up top 7 beauty advent calendars under £75.
This have-it-all advent calendar has a selection of beauties from skincare to cosmetics, bathing bits and accessories – and six products are full-sized. Worth a whopping £151.95, it’s only £39. Bargain.
