There’s a treasure trove of beauty advent calendars to make counting down the days until Christmas even more special, so when Latest in Beauty launched it’s ‘The Beauty Calendar Award Winners’ Katy from our team couldn’t wait to review, here’s what she said:

“Latest in Beauty is one of the very originals who started launching beauty advent calendars, so I was keeping my eyes peeled for this to be announced as it’s always one I love to purchase because of its high-value contents, yet is still super affordable and accessible and this year is exactly the same.

LIB The Beauty Calendar Award Winners

Unlike previous years, when the calendar was massive and had bright and bold designs, this is smaller, sleeker and again, packed with even more lotions and potions. With its ‘LIB’ trademark around the sides and back of the box, the slightly raised gold text (with the number 24 in the background) really stood out on the front of the box – there’s was no mistaking who’s advent calendar this was.

Sliding out of its casing, the white box is sealed by a black ‘Lastest in Beauty’ magnetic clip, once opened you are instantly hit with a light fresh fragrance from the products, not too overpowering but enough I did sneeze!

Now unlike any other year, there are no doors to open, as this year LIB have kept sustainability and waste to the front of their minds – which I loved as I felt like I was doing my part to also help with the environment, the only down-side I could see everything in one go so the element of surprise each day wasn’t there, but a small price to pay to help do your bit for the world.

Inside was crammed with 24 premium products across skincare, body care, makeup and haircare including Rodial SNAKE jelly eye patches great for after a virtual Christmas party, MAC mini Matte Lipstick in Whirl and Batiste Dry Shampoo – everything you need to pamper yourself on those cold winter days.

Overall I adored LIB ‘The Beauty Calendar Award Winners’ not only can I reuse the box over and over again, but I can also try out products I wouldn’t initially buy because of the high price point, as it may have been a waste. What’s next for me? well, I’ve already pulled out the scrunchie and T-Zone facemask for a full pamper day.”
