What the reviews say
Already racking up over 300 five-star reviews from happy shoppers online at John Lewis, it's safe to say it tops the chart for the best beauty advent calendars on offer this year.
Here's a closer look at what some shoppers had to say:
"Every year I think "they cannot beat last year's calendar". And then they prove me wrong. Another excellent product and variety of items which will keep my wife smiling for longer than 25 days."
"Loved this calendar from the moment I first saw it. Great selection of products from brands I truly love and absolutely LOVE the amount of full-sized products as opposed to tiny samples. Well done, John Lewis!"
"Treated myself cos I'm worth it. My neighbour had this last year as a gift and it was one of the best I have seen so didn't want to miss out this year. Products look amazing so can't wait for Dec 1st to open the door."
"One of my favourite Xmas gifts which really is a real treat for anyone. Fantastic products by well known brands, well worth the money!"
"Amazing value. Even better than expected. Definitely would recommend buying this calendar for a gift this Christmas."
"Have bought this for my wife every year for the past three years. Goes down brilliantly every time, and means she gets a great selection of lovely quality toiletries to work through over the year that she maybe wouldn't otherwise buy. Products get applied to body parts, sprayed on pillows before bed, burnt during baths and recommended to friends. Buy now and earn yourself serious husband points to spend as you please over the proceeding year, on nights out with mates or on guilt free purchases of your own. Highly recommended!"
