Christmas might be a few months away, but that isn't stopping the team at Liberty London from unveiling their 2023 advent calendars. And yes — there's more than one this year.

First off, the usual suspect: Liberty's Beauty Advent Calendar.

Like previous iterations, this year's offering is shaped like the famous Tudor style store and adorned in illustrations created by artist Clym Everden.

Inside you'll find a huge 29 products (20 of which are full-size) spanning skincare, haircare, make-up, fragrance and even jewellery.

Not just that, in five calendars this year there is a Golden Ticket worth £1000 for lucky customers to spend in-store and online.

Brands spotlighted in the advent calendar include Sunday Riley, Le Labo, Augustinus Bader, Charlotte Mensah and Rose Inc, with a total value of £1,043. But don't fret, as the calendar itself costs £250 to purchase — saving you a whopping £790.
