Beauty Calendars, love ’em or hate ’em they are popping up all over right now as we get ever closer to December. Today I am sharing with you this year’s offering from Latest In Beauty which is The Beauty Calendar: The Award Winners.
“This year was all about delivering the best products and the best value to our customers while being mindful of waste. Having sourced award-winning brands and products, this is one of our best line ups yet.”
Dean Smith – E-commerce and Marketing Director
With an award-winning mix of beauty products from both the high street and high end, the beauty calendar is valued at over £300 and features brands such as MAC, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Aurelia, Aveda and more!
Sustainable & Minimal
This year they are doing things a little differently though. Latest in Beauty have designed their beauty calendar for 2020 with sustainability in mind. There’s no plastic, no doors and only a minimal amount of waste and I can definitely get on board with that.
As there are no doors to open, it means you can handpick your product each day from the 24 products in the luxe box. I actually like to think of it as a luxury lucky dip! It also means you can repurpose the sturdy and stylish luxe box afterwards.
So, time to get on with revealing the 24 products that are in this year’s beauty calendar from Latest In Beauty.
Mini M·A·C Matte Lipstick in Whirl. A gorgeous rosy-brown matte lipstick. Perfect shade for a festive look and also the perfect size for fitting into a small handbag or clutch.
Aveda Damage Remedy ™ Daily Hair Repair. This is a leave-in treatment, protecting your hair, helps prevent breakage and it will also help protect your hair against heat.

My Overall Thoughts
So, there you have it. All 24 products of The Beauty Calendar: The Award Winners revealed. I do think there’s a good range of products this year. Plus, I love the fact that there are no doors to open and that they come in a really stylish box that I can repurpose afterwards. There’s a lot of excess packaging that comes with advent calendars, especially beauty ones. So, it’s always felt very wasteful with all that has to be thrown away after a beauty calendar is finished. This way there is very minimal waste.
