(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

The season of beauty advent calendars is upon us and each year just keeps getting bigger and better! When it comes to beauty advent calendars, I've been waiting patiently to see what Latest in Beauty had in store for us and a few days ago I finally had a peek and oh boy is this one GOOD. 

For the first time ever, Latest in Beauty has created the Style Beauty Advent calendar alongside The Sunday Times Style and it is HUGE. Worth over a whopping £810, the advent calendar features an almost all full-sized lineup with twenty-five premium products and 21 full sizes- there are no samples and no fillers. 

Each calendar has been handmade therefore there may be a slight variation in colour or finish to each one but that doesn't take away from the absolute mountain of premium beauty products you'll find inside each drawer. 

Enjoy the best in beauty from cult, luxury, expert, forward-thinking and game-changing brands in the industry such as Shiseido, Summer Fridays, Medik8, Olaplex, Boy Smells and more. With a saving of over £600, this one-of-a-kind beauty advent calendar could be yours for only £199.

So... twenty-five products - shall we get stuck in? It is so great to see twenty-five products, I can never understand why there is never a door or drawer for Christmas Day! I'm going to share the list below and then pick out some that I'm really excited about because oh boy (I keep saying that) is this a beauty lover's dream!

In no particular order (because I don't want to spoil when you'll get which product):

I audibly squealed when I saw the Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil - it is hands down, the best facial oil I have ever used and I'm so pleased to have another in my beauty stash. Brimming with powerful antioxidants, it instantly revives dull, lacklustre complexions, levelling texture and tone, while encouraging a more supple and firm complexion. Derived from sugarcane, the squalane in this formula imparts instant hydration and works to seal that moisture within the skin for long-lasting comfort and it smells bloody beautiful. 

Another product I reach for a lot is the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Treatment and you'll find the 60ml tube worth a whopping £78.00 in a little drawer! It is a CULT product - known as The Hollywood 2-minute facial, this product helps transform the skin revealing unbelievable radiance. 

A new brand for me but a product I'm sure you'll know - Sol de Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream! Rich in South America's secret ingredients, a naturally nourishing, hyper-hydrating blend of cupuaçu butter, açaí and coconut oil provide the background to the star of the show: guaraná. A native Amazonian plant, this fruit contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine on the planet (with almost five times more caffeine than coffee), giving your bottom the ultimate boost and stimulating circulation to keep it super smooth and tantalisingly toned. It smells to die for - like summer in a pot!

And that is the Latest in Beauty advent calendar for 2022! There are some fabulous brands featured, some with more awards than you can shake a stick at - I personally think they've really outdone themselves this year and there isn't a single product I turned my nose up at or wouldn't use.

What do you think? It's available to buy now but be quick because this is gonna get snapped up before you know it.
