@victoria_woolly_web 😫😫😫 This is so expensive and SO disappointing; it’s making me feel a bit sick how much I spent on this to get so many average minis. My hands aren’t small but they’re not huge either, so you can see how tiny the vast majority of products are. All of the products I’ve tried from this Jo Malone Advent Calendar 2023 smell amazing, and because they’re strong they should last longer than I might think but my goodness I’m having serious buyer’s regret 😫 #advent #adventcalendar #adventunboxing #jomalone #jomaloneadventcalendar #premiumadvent #luxuryadvent #adventcalendarreviews #adventreviews #kjomaloneadventcalendar2023 #bestadventcalendar2023 #advent2023 #christmascalendar #christmas #countdowntochristmas ♬ cardigan – Taylor Swift

♥︎ Liberty Advent Calendar 2023


Liberty beauty advent calendar 2023Liberty

The 2023 Liberty advent calendar costs £250 and is worth more than £1,040.

This includes 29 products from brands such as Dizziak, Augustinus Bader, Rose Inc, and more.

Plus, an impressive 20 are full-sized.

If you join the waitlist you will be entered into a competition for a chance to win one of five £1,000 Golden Tickets which can be used to shop the entire Liberty website.

The calendar went on general sale on 27 September and you can find out more about what’s inside the 2023 Liberty Advent Calendar here.

Alternatively, watch our unboxing video below.

@victoria_woolly_web This is how you do an advent calendar! The Liberty Advent Calendar 2023 is full of premium brands including Rose Inc. Dr Sturm, Sunday Riley and Aromatherapy Associates. Most of these brands I’ve heard of, some of them I haven’t and others are products I’ve been wanting to try but never got round to it. This (to me at least) is the beauty of advent calendars and the fact that 20 products are full-size is giving me life. This isn’t full of your viral products (with the exception of Paula’s Choice) it’s full of high-end skincare, hair care and makeup worth more than £1,000. I don’t think it quite lives up to the Space NK calendar or the Harvey Nichols one but it’s really, really good and worth the money in my honest opinion! #advent #adventcalendar #adventunboxing #libertyadventcalendar #libertyadventcalendar2023 #premiumadvent #luxuryadvent #adventcalendarreviews #adventreviews #bestadventcalendar2023 #advent2023 #christmascalendar #christmas #countdowntochristmas ♬ When the Rain Comes – Sugababes
