Yes, it’s only September, but with summer’s heatwave now a distant, hazy memory, our thoughts have (whisper it) begun to stray towards the winter months and all they bring with them, whether that means a brand new coat, the opportunity to chain-watch Love Actually without being judged too much or the new crop of covetable beauty advent calendars launching for 2018.
As any beauty aficionado is by now well aware, beauty advent calendars are the highly Instagrammable gift that keeps on giving through the month of December: not only do they recreate that giddy rush that defined December mornings throughout childhood, the hand-luggage friendly miniatures are also often a good way of testing out new or cult products before committing to a full-sized version. Launching on October 1st, Net-A-Porter's calendar boasts an impressive line-up that encompasses make-up, skincare and hair care, with standouts including Philip Kingsley's classic Elasticizer Pre-Shampooing Treatment, Sunday Riley's Luna Sleeping Night Oil and Charlotte Tilbury's Goddess Skin Clay Mask.
