I was delighted when the Dermacare Direct Advent Calendar landed on my desk this week. We are well and truly into the beauty advent calendar season now as many of the main ones are already on sale and this is a lovely one for fans of luxury skincare.
The Dermacare Direct advent calendar focuses on facial skincare, and features the kind of cosmeceutical brands you might know from the Dermacare Direct site. It costs £95, with a value of £500, so it’s a great way to try out some high end products.
The exact contents are being kept under wraps, but I can tell you some of the highlights that will hopefully help you make up your mind as to whether this is for you. So we’ll have a few spoilers here but not so many that it ruins the surprise.
First up, check out the delightful reusable packaging. No acres of cardboard and plastic to throw away here. Instead, there’s an outer gift box and then 24 little hessian bags containing each day’s gift. You could choose to hang them up for a festive look, and of course the whole thing can be reused again and again.
I love these little bags – there’s something very childlike about being able to rummage through and squeeze them to guess what’s inside. Though of course the contents are very much for grown ups.
Brands included in the Dermacare Direct Advent Calendar
8 are full size products, and the rest are sample/mini/travel size.

Having reviewed various products from Dermacare Direct, I would say that there’s a lot of skincare expertise behind the site, and the brands are carefully chosen. So even if you haven’t heard of some of these, I would trust that they’re in there for a reason and are worth checking out. It’s a really exciting mix.
This will definitely sell out, as it did last year, so hop on it quick.
