Remember when advent calendars had windows full of choc that always seemed to be a bit melted? Or, worse, windows that had just festive pictures behind them? Thankfully, the last few years have brought an explosion of gorgeous beauty-based Christmas countdowns, and this festive season they’re better than ever. I defy anyone not to fall for the Superdrug Bloom Collection 12 Days Of Fragrance Calendar which is why I’ve chosen it for my first issue of DARE. With 12 mini fragrances, it’s the perfect daily treat for yourself or a clever way to pad out Xmas stockings.
