Naughty or Nice Nails
A festive manicure is a Christmas-time must-have but when you’re on-the-go, it can be hard to find the drying time. Luckily, within the advent calendar you will find Rimmel London 60 Second Super Shine Nail Polish in Rapid Ruby, the perfect Rudolf red, which dries in mere moments leaving your hands free to get back to wrapping up (or unwrapping!) presents.
And if you can’t even spare one minute, you’ll also find Leighton Denny Miracle Mist – an award winning, speed-drying spray that conditions cuticles at the same time. As if that wasn’t good enough, you’ll also find Margaret Dabbs Crystal Nail File to give your nails the exact smooth shape you want while protecting them from splitting.
Windy weather, central heating and daily heat styling can cause havoc on your hair, leaving ends frazzled and frizz untameable – not what you want during party season. You Beauty Advent Calendar is on hand with Moroccan Oil Treatment and Charles Worthington Moisture Seal Hair Healer Leave-in Conditioner to ensure your locks remain lustrous come rain, snow or shine.

On top of that, You Beauty also treats you to Nuxe Prodigieux Shower Oil – a sensuous blend of orange blossom and vanilla that will leave skin satin smooth – and Miller Harris Rose Silence – a delicately sweet yet creamy perfume which will take you seamlessly from day to night.
