It may only be November but thanks to the abundance of Beauty Advent Calendars dropping for Christmas 2023, it’s fair to say we’re already celebrating the festivities. And who could blame us? This year the advent offerings have been nothing short of gold-standard. We’ve reviewed several already including the Liberty London Beauty Advent Calendar, the Cult Beauty Advent Calendar, the Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar and the Dior Advent Calendar, all of which have proven to be worth their salt.

One that took pride of place on our advent calendar wish list? LookFantastic's, but predictably, it looks like it's already sold out thanks to the influx of content creators raving about it on social media. But good news, as the brand have just launched their much coveted Beauty Chest - the perfect purchase if you've missed out on the advent calendar. Scroll on for all the need-to-knows.

Is The LookFantastic Beauty Advent Calendar worth it? Here’s our verdict

Rachael Martin, junior beauty editor:

'If you're after an advent calendar that delivers value for money then this one is just the ticket. You can expect 27 products from iconic brands like Elemis, Nars, Sol de Janeiro and Color Wow. I think it's particularly good if you feel like you're stuck in a bit of a beauty rut - we've tried and tested each product individually and can promise that they're excellent options for refreshing your routine. The Origins Mega Mushroom Treatment is well worth considering alone - just a small amount makes light work of soothing and calming an irritated complexion. If you're reading this and it's currently sold out? Make a play for the LookFantastic Beauty Chest - believe me when I say it's the next best thing - it's bursting with top brands like Rodial, Olaplex and Murad'

Overall rating

Four out of five - and we're only deducting a point because the advent calendar is currently sold out.
