As our favourite season approaches (can we put the tree up yet?), it’s time to reveal the 2017 YOU Beauty Advent Calendar – better than ever in its 6th year! Admittedly, it’s a tad more extravagant than your usual chocolate affair, but who says you can’t have both? Packed with a selection of the very best beauty and skincare products chosen by the experts at YOU magazine, you’ll look forward to 24 days of gorgeous over December with premium treats worth over £230 for only £60. The YOU Beauty Advent Calendar also makes a fabulous gift, but should you decide to treat yourself, who are we to judge? We’ve already ordered ours!

This really is our favourite way to countdown to Christmas so here are some of our calendar highlights…



Featuring three powders, this NIP+FAB Travel Palette in Light/Medium is the only lineup you’ll need to contour, blush and highlight, ensuring you never have a #makeupfail again.

Leighton Denny’s Nail Polish in Vixen is a gorgeous deep plum with purple tones – it’s a softer and warmer alternative to the classic rouge noir, with a rich, velvety finish for instant glamour.

Set your look with the SportFX Makeup Setting Mist, which provides a feeling of instant freshness, and continuous hydration and comfort after any workout. With just a small spritz it controls oil, deflects surface shine and keeps your skin looking and feeling beautifully fresh.

This unique Ciaté Travel Size Wonderwand Gel Kohl Liner combines the blendability of a traditional kohl with the high coverage pigment of a gel. Choose between defined precision or a soft smudged out effect using the built-in blending brush.

Apply and blend eyeshadow with this Look Good Feel Better Angled Blending Brush. Hand-sculpted, superfine soft bristles allow you to create those party eyes with ease.



Get a glowing complexion with the BareMinerals SKINLONGEVITY Vital Power Infusion, designed to reawaken and help maintain your skin’s most vibrant healthy look. This lightweight serum essence delivers exceptionally radiant, resilient, youthful-looking skin.

Dr Organic’s Organic Snail Gel Eye Serum is formulated with a proprietary blend of bioactive ingredients, combined with snail secretion to create an anti-aging serum that can help hydrate, smooth and protect the skin while assisting to improve the appearance of wrinkles.

Enriched with delicate silk and cotton extracts, this luxurious Gatineau Gentle Silk Cleanser gently dissolves all traces of make-up and impurities while conditioning the skin.

REN’s Keep Young & Beautiful Instant Firming Beauty Shot instantly firms, lifts and plumps the skin to leave it looking dramatically smoother, tighter and more youthful. It provides optimal hydration both short and long-term.

The Organic Pharmacy Lip and Eye Cream is a superb, nourishing, dual action cream for both lips and eyes. It reduces the appearance of puffiness, dark circles and fine lines, while also hydrating dry lips.

Nourish skin head-to-toe with the ESPA Restorative Body Oil, which works to comfort and calm the senses. Sweet orange, rose geranium and lavender help ease anxiety and calm, while palmarosa helps tone, and sweet almond oil deeply nourishes for beautifully soft, supple skin.





Infused with antioxidant-rich argan oil and nourishing ingredients, the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask hydrates and conditions while dramatically improving hair’s texture, elasticity, shine and manageability.

Transform dry, dehydrated hair with the Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Takeaway Shampoo & Conditioner. This powerful encapsulated blend of five nourishing oils penetrates deep into the hair shaft, leaving hair three times smoother and silkier than ever before.

Boast bigger, better, full-on glamorous hair with the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray! This invisible dry finishing spray for incredible volume and sexy texture is suitable for all hair types, especially those in need of a boost day or night.

A fun stylish twist on your traditional bobby pins! These Kitsch Teardrop Bobby Pins include one silver, one rose gold and one gold to transform your hair for any Christmas soirée.


’tis the season to get spenny, so what are you waiting for? Get ready for December before it’s even started and bag the YOU Beauty Advent Calendar before it’s gone!
