EXPELLIARMUS (is what I'll say if you try to take this away from me)
We love beauty advent calendars here at Marie Claire HQ, but perhaps the only thing we love more than beauty festive treats are Harry Potter treats. (Did you know you can spend Halloween at Hogwarts this year?)
Imagine our joy, then, when Boots announced they were releasing a Harry Potter advent calendar this year. We all practically exploded with excitement.
The HP 2019 calendar is all about beauty treats inspired by the Potter-verse. We're talking themed bath bombs for all the Hogwarts houses and the ~Golden Snitch~ itself.
Priced at just £35, we're pretty sure this will sell out quickly, so be sure to order yours now to avoid missing out.
If you don't mind spoilers, keep scrolling for the full contents list below, and stay tuned for an unboxing of the calendar nearer the time...
