Margaret Mitchell, Space NK’s Chief Merchandising Officer, says of the surge in sales: ‘Beauty advent calendars have continued to grow in popularity and demand for ours this year has been off the charts.

‘It’s easy to see why – with 24 products and a value of over £630, it’s the perfect way to trial products from some of our most desirable brands with a great saving. I think this year in particular, our customers want to treat themselves to something uplifting to bring beauty joy throughout December.’

Despite its £195 price tag, as Margaret points out, the overall value is tempting many customer to invest in the ultimate treat to self after the most turbulent year in recent memory.
