Boots beauty Advent calendars 2018 preview

By on September 22nd, 2018 - 8:35 AM


This year we were lucky enough once again to be invited to the Boots Christmas show. They’ve got lots of treats in store this year, and new ranges we’ve never seen before, including lines from Niomi Smart and Little Mix.

But this blog post is a close up of the 2018 Advent calendar range – and there’s something for every price range from £12.50 to £75! Some of the biggest news this year is that all of these calendars are included in Boots’ green sticker 3 for 2 offer, so you can stock up on gifts and get yourself a free treat at the same time.

No7

Every Christmas this is one of Boots’ biggest sellers and it almost always sells out. This year it’s £42, but the contents are worth £177. It comes with 25 days (so even a gift for you on the day itself) – which is more generous than a lot of other beauty Advent calendars.

Last year it was £40 with £169 worth of goodies inside, so you’re paying a little bit more now.

You can sign up to the waiting list to get an email once it’s released online here.

What you need to know

How much are the contents worth: £177

What’s inside: lipstick, eyeliner, eye cream, an eye mask, and the big ticket item is a voucher for a No7 Match Made lipstick.
