Marks and Spencer’s famous beauty advent calendar is back for 2018 - and it's better than ever

Marks and Spencer

It’s never too early to think about the festive season!

Marks and Spencer has unveiled its famous beauty advent calendar for 2018, and we think this could be their best one yet.

Worth over £250, this year’s beauty advent calendar costs only £35, when you  also spend £35 on clothing, home and beauty instore.

Chocolate may reign as the nation's favourite way to build up to Christmas, but big brands are increasingly offering shoppers a break from cocoa overload with an impressive range of alternative advent calendars.

You'll find plenty of options available this year, from candles to Champagne, gin and even cheese to celebrate the days before Christmas, or, if you’re a beauty junkie, get your fix with this highly popular M&S beauty advent calendar.

Last year’s calendar received near-perfect reviews online, with one shopper writing: ‘Another fabulous box with try - out and some full sis of a vast array of beauty goodies. What I can’t use makes a brilliant tree present for friends and family.

‘Please keep providing these much better value than other advent calendars. Would you ask Santa to do one for the men next year too please?’

For each day leading up to Christmas 2018, you’ll find specially curated beauty products from M&S own brands and big beauty brands including Nuxe, Stila, L’Occitane, Ren and Pixi.

Here’s a list of the goodies you’ll find in the beauty advent calendar…
