It’s the moment beauty fans have been waiting for – the John Lewis beauty advent calendar for 2020 has been unveiled and it’s very possible that it’s the best one yet.
This year’s offering from the department store is housed in a vibrant hot pink chest of drawers, which is fully recyclable, or sturdy enough to be saved and refilled year after year, if you prefer. And tucked away inside those drawers are products from some of the biggest and most exciting names in the world of beauty right now – think brands like Sunday Riley, Neom, Charlotte Tilbury, Elemis, Nars and Clarins.
Eight of the treats are full-size, making this a serious generous offering in terms of cost per ml, and the entire edit is designed to give you a refresh in every area of your routine, whether it’s upgrading your daily skincare steps, adding a little versatility or even mixing up your fragrance wardrobe, as there’s three scents in the collection too.
The deal breaker when it comes to beauty advent calendars is often the price, which can soar to upwards of £250+ in some cases. But for 2020, John Lewis has kept things more reasonable than many; its calendar is priced at a mid-range £150, and when you consider that there’s more that £375 worth of goods inside, it’s an investment that you might just be willing to make.
When does the John Lewis Beauty Advent Calendar go on sale?
The first opportunity to shop the calendar was during the recent members-only John Lewis Virtual Beauty Weekend, after which time it was made available generally on 6 October – and promptly sold out.
But now John Lewis has ever so kindly answered our prayers and restocked it – so if you want to get one, now’s your chance…
