Advent calendars are a great way to enjoy the festive season all month long. It’s a gorgeous little gift from you, to you. We have compiled a list of the most premium, luxurious beauty and skincare advent calendars for all my beauty lovers.
The body shop:
When I think of the festive season, for some reason I don’t think cinnamon and pumpkin spice. I think of fresh summer fruits, African thunderstorms and sea breeze. I always purchase a strawberry body scrub and a satsuma or grapefruit body wash to ‘treat myself this time of year. The Body Shop ‘Share The Joy Advent Calendar’ contains 24 little head-to-toe treats that will keep you looking your best right through the festive season, as you count down to Christmas. These goodies include wonderfully fragrant, tub-transforming bath bubbles, body butters, and other body-loving surprises!

While we are all enjoying time by the pool, we need to remember to take some time for self-care these holidays too, body scrubs, face masks, and lip balms are much needed during the festive season. This calendar is for grown-ups! It’s not just children who can’t wait for Christmas… Enjoy 24 make-up and skincare surprises to enhance your Christmas preparations.
