Run, don't walk.

Run, don't walk.

Sure, chocolate is good and all, but what could possibly be more exciting in the dank mornings of December than opening a brand new luxury beauty treat every single day until Christmas?

Yep, Christmas may still be four months away, but as assiduous shoppers will know, beauty advent calendars season is already in full swing, and if you want to get your hands on one of the good ‘uns, it's high time get your order in.

It's all but guaranteed that the very best of them will sell out, especially the big name luxury calendars – think Liberty, Cult Beauty, and yes, LookFantastic – because they almost always have the best beauty savings.

And by the looks of this year's incredible offering from LookFantastic, 2021 is no exception.

An all-out treasure trove of the beauty giant's best buys, this year's LookFantastic advent calendar contains luxe beauty heroes from the likes of NARS, Kate Somerville, Aveda and Elemis. Valued at over £410, but retailing for just £85 (yep, that's a saving of over £325), it'd almost be rude not to, right?

When can I buy the LookFantastic Advent Calendar?

While the waiting list for the sell-out calendar is open now, the LookFantastic 2021 Beauty Advent Calendar will officially be available for pre-order from tomorrow, 1st September 2021 for Beauty Box subscribers. (And given that it flies off the shelves every year without fail, we'd highly recommend signing up to be a Beauty Box subscriber here.)

If you're not a beauty subscription box subscriber, though, you'll be able to pre-order on 2nd September 2021, ahead of the calendar going on general sale on 1st October.

What's inside this year's calendar?

What isn't in it might be a more appropriate question. Think 25 hero products from some of the industry's best brands. Here's everything you'll find inside (avert your eyes if you want to avoid spoilers):

  • Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturising Cleanser (Deluxe Mini)
  • Color Wow Supernatural Dream Coat (Deluxe Mini)

Happy advent calendar season!
