If you love the countdown to Christmas almost as much as you love the big day itself, then it's likely you've already been on the lookout for 2023's Advent calendar offerings. Whether you've found the most unique Advent calendar filled with jewellery or socks, the perfect food Advent calendar full of your favourite snacks, or have been saving up for the ultimate beauty Advent calendar to keep you primed for party season, the choice can be overwhelming.
Yet if you feel like a gift a day throughout December is a bit much before Christmas day itself or leaves you feeling deflated in the Crimbo limbo between the festive day and New Year's Eve, then fear no more. Beauty haven Sephora, which opens its second UK store in November, has launched an After Advent Calendar, designed to keep you feeling your best during the in-between week of the festive period.
Firstly, it makes a great Chritmas present for your mum, sister, or for your friend. For £35, it gives seven days of coveted beauty gifts to provide some R&R during Twixmas, as the limbo week has come to be known, as well as a few glam pick-me-ups to get you prepped for New Year's Eve. And, we have to admit, it's actually kind of genius. Usually by the time Boxing Day rolls around, we're exhausted from socialising and eating, so it's actually the moment we could do with some beauty skin-care help. Plus, it keeps the Christmas magic going during those awkward "what day is it?" moments.
