Back again to make the festive season that little bit more luxurious, it’s the lusted-after NET-A-PORTER beauty advent calendar.

As you’d expect, the line up is a selection from favourite NET-A-PORTER brands – expect to find Dr. Barbara Sturm’s cult Hyaluronic Serum, Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream, Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk Matte Revolution Lipstick, the amazing 111Skin Vitamin C Brightening Booster and Hayo’u’s iconic Gua Sha Beauty Restorer facial massager among the treats inside. Along with established brands there are plenty of new discoveries to fall in love with too.

While this one comes packed with 13 full-size and 12 travel-size skincare and make up treats, it’s nice to see a nod tohair care. Usually missing in beauty advent calendars, kudos to NET-A-PORTER for not leaving out our locks this year.

One of the star products has got to be the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Deep Conditioning Treatment – purely because no other hair care product is so universally raved about for amazing results.Used once a week, it delivers serious moisture inside the hair cuticle and works especially well on for extremely damaged hair. This super moisturising intensive treatment adds silkiness, suppleness, elasticity, bounce and strength.

What’s the design of the NET-A-PORTER advent calendarlike?

As you’d expect from a brand known for the best in fashion this exclusive edition comes in a predictably chic black box wit cream interior (which can be recycled in the new year) with a treat behind each of the 25 drawers.

It’s not the flashiest design out there but a really impressive gift to unwrap on Christmas Day.

How much is the NET-A-PORTER advent calendarworth and is it good value?

One of the most premium beauty advent calendars out there, along with Dior, this comes with a high price point. But, with a huge saving of £875 (if you take the cost of the products included individually) this offers good value for money for serious beauty buffs.

One of the most coveted things about the Net-a-porter is the chance to try super luxe products and this year’s line up is a who’s who of the best and most advanced skincare and make up out there. Expect to find a full size Dr Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum (worth £235) and the Gua Sha Beauty Restorer facial massager which will last forever this does represent value for money if you like to have the best of the best in beauty.

What’s the availability like?

Only available on there is no need to sign up to a waiting list, but despite the premium price this is unlikely to be available come December. Even with the hefty price this is one of the most sought after advent calendars and sells out fast.

Is it a sustainable or ethical choice?

Not all the products included are cruel free or vegan but some of the most premium brands (like 111 Skin) are cruelty free. The stylish box could be reused for storage into the New Year and is recyclable. Ditto for most of the packaging inside.
