It can’t have escaped anyone’s notice that beauty advent calendars are selling out – already! Jo Malone did a split launch (clever marketing – they launched exclusively for two weeks, sold out completely, and re-launch nationwide on 4th November), but the Laura Mercier box has already gone and so has Clarins and I don’t know whether they’re re-stocking or not. The You Beauty Advent Calendar arrived this morning with an impressive selection of producs – everything from Miller Harris and Nuxe to Nanshy and Espa.
There’s a very decent mix of colour and skincare including two shadow palettes, eyeliner and tinted balm, although I would say that it has a skin bias. What I like about this one – apart from offering good value is that it’s beautifully made (I’ve seen some shockers) and is full of gift cards, some of which have no minimum spend (ESPA £15 off – no minimum). In fact, there are 19 offers so if you have a beauty Christmas list, it’s going to be very handy (i.e. 15% off at Miller Harris boutiques).
The only thing to add is that it’s very chunky – if you have a small space it might be just too big – I’ve seen smaller TVs! It’s got a £270 value for £69.99 which I think is pretty good and it’s edited well into little luxuries and useful products. I’ve got a code for BBB readers for £10 off – use ACBRITISH10 HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
