This year, our Latest in Beauty Advent offering has a whole new meaning. It’s not simply an amalgamation of must-have products and brands, it’s a new collection that represents a whole ‘new world’ of beauty. Inside, you’ll find brands that are mindful, innovative, inclusive and forward thinking.
The products will be individually wrapped and numbered, offering a unique 24 days of advent experience. The 2021 edit features some brands seen ONLY in this round up, and some products made specifically for this campaign and delivers a total value of £360, our highest ever. So, let’s break it all down for you…
