For those of you who are beauty-obsessed and want to test out luxury products for less, Debenhams' 2023 offering may be the one for you.
While the majority of beauty advent calendars now retail for over £100, such as Fortnum & Mason, Liberty, Elemis and The White Company. The Debenhams calendar is filled with some big names in the beauty biz, with products adding up to £390, but will set you back only £85.
Bursting with 24 beauty products — a mix of both full-size and mini — this advent promises a "beautiful surprise every day" with picks from best-selling brands in make-up, skincare, haircare and fragrance.
Lancome, Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder, Mario Badescu and Sheseido are just a few of the popular brands featured in the calendar.
Plus, there's a great mix of products you're sure to use throughout the busy pre-Christmas period, from a This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, to a Bloom & Blossom Party Feet Soothing Foot Spray, Starskin's Revitalising Gold Mask and Urban Decay's All Nighter Setting Spray.
As for the luxury skincare items we're looking forward to testing? The Lancome Advanced Génifique Hydrating Face Serum takes the top slot, you can test a 7ml bottle (usually £40 for 20ml). There's also the Algenist Genius Liquid Collagen Essence (usually £20) and Sheseido's Vital Perfection Uplifting & Firming Cream (usually £32).
All in all, the Debenhams calendar features a well rounded assortment of products you're bound to actually use and is great value for money, so it's a winner in our books.
