Over the past few years, the beauty advent calendar has become a growing trend. This year, one of the best around is Aldi‘s Lacura version – the first time the high street brand has launched its own luxury Advent Calendar (£54.99).
The forest-green beauty box is packed full with 24 iconic cruelty-free products, from cult favourites to brand-new launches – all tied up with a sumptuous satin bow. There are no duds here, with each one being useable and fantastic additions to your beauty kit.
It’s now available in store – while stocks last – so get down to your local supermarket quick smart.
So, what’s inside? Let’s face it, we are keeping this one for ourselves, right? And, if so, who wants to spoil the daily surprise?? So, without giving too much away – let’s just say, it is full of so many fab-u-lous treats.
My top picks include the Lacura Ebony Rose Face Mask and Lacura Ebony Rose Cream, formulated with Black Rose Extract, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Shea Butter, to leave skin feeling smooth, soft and plump (these are the brand’s iconic dupes for the super-expensive versions from Sisley).
All of the products are really so usable, such as the Lacura Jelly Cleanser, which has a luxe gel texture enriched with essential oils to leave the complexion soft and clean. Follow up with the Lacura Vitamin C Serum, formulated with 15% Vitamin C, E and essential fruit extracts to give skin a radiant glow from within and help combat the signs of ageing.
There highlights includes the Lacura Rose Water – so kind on the skin as it whips away make-up and the day’s debris; the Lacura Avocado Overnight Eye Cream, formulated with coffee seed extract, retinol and avocado oil; the Lacura Dewy Lip Balm, packed with shea butter, coffee seed oil and aloe barbadensis leaf extract so lips remain moisturised with a hint of colour and the brand-new Luxury Illuminating Tanning Drops that will take festive looks to the next level as beauty fanatics count down in style.
That’s it! I will say no more, as the gift of surprise is a precious one. Except to say, Christmas has definitely come early with these treats you can enjoy every day up to the Big Day…
