For those of you who prefer to keep the thought of tinsel and twinkling lights at bay until December, prepare yourselves, because the beauty industry has other plans. It has been delighting in its early entry into the world of Christmas festivities by showering us with glitzy gift sets, exciting new product launches, and a cornucopia of beauty advent calendars as early as September. It may seem premature to begin contemplating how you'll count down to Christmas 2023, but remember, the early bird catches the worm—and the glamorous ones can nab the very best festive beauty buys before everyone else too.
Whether you're on the hunt for a pre-party season pick-me-up (because that perfect dewy glow won't materialise on its own), or you're planning which gifts to pamper the women in your life, no-one does it quite like Harvey Nichols.
If you've been eyeing up the ultimate beauty-buff treasure - the Harvey Nichols Beauty Advent Calendar - there's really no waiting around. Year after year, it earns its reputation as one of the finest on the market and, as a result, it’s known to sell out fast. For this year’s addition, it boasts 25 boxes overflowing with 45 cult favourites (including 24 full-sized products) from renowned brands like Maison Francis Kurkjian, Charlotte Tilbury and Augustinus Bader. And as a special surprise, Harvey Nichols has even tucked away £100 gift cards in a select few calendars—one in every fifty, to be precise. Will you be one of the lucky ones to find it in drawer 25 on Christmas morning?
For those seeking smaller yet equally satisfying indulgences, Harvey Nichols also boasts an unrivalled selection of products from the crème de la crème of beauty. But where to start? Below we’ve curated just a few of the luxury beauty buys that will be going on our Christmas list this year. Discovery kits offer a delightful way to explore new brands and elevate your skincare routine. Pampering treats like face masks, eye masks, hair products, bath sets and cult body creams are the ideal choice for those who deserve some R&R, and you might be surprised at just how affordable some of these can be. And what about you? Whether it's a signature perfume, a scented candle to adorn your home, or that fancy serum you've been itching to try, we won’t tell Santa if you don’t...
