Some of the best beauty advent calendars are offering incredible value for money this Christmas
Demand is high: Boots sold one No7 beauty advent calendar every seven seconds on launch day
Read on to discover the best value-for-money options and further reductions ahead of Black Friday
This year's beauty advent calendar choice is vast, with almost every big brand you can think of producing a tempting option.
But it's a considered purchase. The price tags are hefty with some nearing £300. However, when you consider the accumulative worth of products included, you’re actually getting yourself a very good deal.
Including some of the most covetable skincare, haircare and cosmetic buys out there, you could be saving yourself up to £820. Yes, you read that right. That figure refers to the massive worth of Liberty's spectacular £245 calendar - which has a worth of £1065.
In many cases, by the time you (or your recipient) has opened up the Day 5 surprise, you'll have already recouped the initial cost of the calendar - and then some.
