It may not be Christmas, but we have all the details on the first beauty advent calendar of 2018

Beauty fans, get ready to get excited…

Beauty advent calendars are straight up one of the best things about Christmas. Our favourite beauty brands have really stepped up their game for 2018 in a BIG way – with new offerings coming in thick and fast. It may seem super early, but let’s remember that the demand gets so high - with many offerings selling out before 1 December. You can't afford to delay – it pays to be organised! Chocolate calendars are a thing of the past – it's all about the beauty world this year – and let's be honest, what could be more special than gifting yourself a luxury little present every single day in the run up to 24 December? Christmas is the season of giving after all.

Birchbox, £65

Birchbox are leading the way getting in there first – and we have all the vital details. The brand's adorable, house-shaped calendar for 2018 launches on 2 October to Birchbox subscribers and a day later for general sale. Priced at £65, it is packed to the brim with some of the best beauty brands money can buy. Each door reveals a special miniature product every day – that's 24 treats from the likes of Sand & Sky, Benefit Cosmetics, Pixi, OPI and Lumene to new a few. We can't wait – particularly as last year, the very same edition sold out a mere 24 hours after it was released.
