Jess's Top Picks: Beauty Advent Calendars


Do you want to enjoy the countdown to Christmas with something more than a sweet treat? Well, a beauty advent calendar could be right up your street. Beauty advent calendars aren't just a great way to treat yourself with all those mini products it's a fab way to try new ones out.

With calendars to suit all tastes and budgets there is more choice this year than ever before. The best ones sell out quickly so I have narrowed it down to my favourites this season. Whether you want to keep to your budget or blow it on some luxurious treats they'll be something here for you.

Marks and Spencer Advent Calendar - £35

The Marks and Spencer beauty advent calendar contains products from brands such as Eyeko, Stila, Rodial and Alpha H. As well as mini products it also contains 2 full size products . This sells out quickly each year. It will cost just £35 when you spend £35 on clothing or home at Marks and Spencer. With goodies in here worth £250 I'd consider it worthy of the spend.

Launches: 9 November at marksandspencer.com
