Treat yourself or someone you love with this Limited Edition Botanicals by Luxe Advent Calendar

Let the countdown begin to a relaxing, self-care-inspired holiday season.

For the beauty and skincare savants among us, Christmas is perhaps the best time of year, with our favourite brands launching limited edition collections or re-stocking cult products, or even putting together beauty advent calendars.

Kicking off the holiday season in the most spectacular fashion, Geelong skincare company Botanicals by Luxe is doing just that, launching a luxurious beauty advent calendar for the very first time.

Award-winning local skin therapist Bec Connolly’s cult beauty brand can simply do no wrong when it comes to simple yet effective professional products that makes you not only look good, but feel good too.

Since launching in 2018, Bec has taken Botanicals by Luxe from strength to strength. Using only sustainable, skin safe and natural ingredients, Botanicals by Luxe skincare is ethically made, Australian made and owned, and entirely fabulous! What started as a small idea with one product soon transformed into a full range with more than 20 products (and more to come), filled with botanicals, plant and fruit extracts and active components to help reveal your best skin ever.

The products (face masks, cleansers, moisturisers, exfoliants) are all cruelty-free, vegan, free from nasties (no PEGS, parabens, sulphates), free from synthetic/artificial fragrances or colours, and they WORK. So there’s lots to love about someone who creates a range like that in your backyard.

Now, while Bec works on future products behind the scene (sunscreen incoming), the skincare queen is letting you unlock your skin confidence as you countdown to Christmas with the Limited Edition Botanicals by Luxe Advent Calendar.

Carefully curated as a six-day advent calendar, the collection of products is an encapsulation of the very best of Botanicals by Luxe’s self-care inspired skincare.

Behind each door, a gift awaits to allow you to sample and enjoy a selection of products, including three full size products, two mini size products and a Reusable Face Pad.

“Just like the entire brand, it’s about looking after yourself, empowering people through their skin, and making people feel good,” Bec explains of the new Christmas-inspired product.

“I’m all about self-care, and especially after the last couple of years, I think it’s important that we keep looking after ourselves and filling our own cups, so the idea is to give a gift that’s going to do that, and not just going to be opened and thrown away. People can either give it as a gift or keep it and treat for themselves to the products behind the six different doors.”

So what exactly can you expect to find behind the doors? Spoiler Alert: If you wish to keep it a surprise stop reading right now and instead go to the website here!).

With radiant skin and some well-deserved time to yourself top of mind, you can guarantee each day will be a highlight when you get to try out what lies behind each door.

You’ll get mini versions of the creamy, soap free Rosehip cleanser which is renowned for gently cleansing, removing makeup and ideal for dry and sensitive skin types; and a mini Australian pink clay mask.

You’ll also find a full-size luxe, antioxidant filled face oil that’s non-comedogenic, light weight and intensely nourishing for the skin; the best-seller in the Hyaluronic Serum and fan favourites in the Hyaluronic Sheet Mask and Reusable Face Pad (so you can say goodbye to those pesky single use face wipes).

The best part is Bec has selected these particular products which will suit most types of skin, with a focus on providing hydration following a change of season and give the skin a good boost coming into the festive time of year.

Whether you’re gifting this or keeping it for yourself, the calendar also promises amazing value at $147, saving shoppers $18.

Go on, give the gift of glowing skin this Christmas.

The Limited Edition Botanicals by Luxe Advent Calendar launches at 8pm AEDT on Thursday, November 24. You can shop it here. While you’re there, Botanicals by Luxe is also launching a Black Friday sale with 20% off sitewide. Run, don’t walk.
