Space NK's Beauty Advent Calendar Is So Beautiful, It Deserves to Be Displayed Year-Round
Search beauty Advent calendar in Google and 28,600,000 results pop up within a matter of milliseconds. They're popular and ever-growing. More brands are jumping on the bandwagon, and the ones that've been doing it for years come back each festive season with better savings and buzzier products. One of our favourite beauty Advent calendars this year — for many reasons that will soon become evident — is Space NK's.
The Space NK Beauty Anthology Advent Calendar (£195) holds products with a worth of over £480 that are displayed in the most charming way. Unlike traditional 25-door Advent calendars, the Space NK calendar is laid out in book volumes, and aptly named the "beauty anthology". Each volume will take you through the festive party season, with different surprise gifts corresponding with what you might need during each week of festivities in December. While we don't want to totally ruin the surprise — just kidding! Spoiler alert: we're going to totally ruin the surprise of what's hiding behind each book, so stop reading if you want to keep it a mystery.
Volume 1, "Ready, Set, Sparkle", will kickstart your festive parties, including your work Christmas party that you have approximately seven minutes to get ready for. This volume includes: Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum, Slip Silk Scrunchies, Sarah Chapman Skinesis Overnight Facial, Drunk Elephant A-Passioni Retinol Cream, Olaplex No. 3, 111Skin Rose Gold Brightening Mask, Aromatherapy Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil, and Kate Somerville ExfoliKate treatment.
Volume 2, "All Dressed Up", will not only help create your perfect festive party look, but it'll also help you prep your skin. This volume includes: Jo Loves Paintbrush Gel in Pomelo, Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer, Hourglass Caution Mascara, Nars Orgasm Blush Duo, and Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil.
Volume 3, "The After Party", will help you restore some calm to your routine (and skin) after the partying, alcohol, and lack of vitamin D has started to sink in. This volume includes: Eve Lom Cleanser (with muslin cloth), By Terry Baume de Rose Lip Care, Sunday Riley Good Genes serum, Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub, Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant, and Chantecaille Bio-Lifting Cream.
Volume 4, "Seasonal Stars", are some of the very best everyday beauty items to keep you stocked up with treats for the new year ahead. This volume includes: Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner, Lipstick Queen in The Truth, Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream , Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder, Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Duo, and IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo.
