If you’re left feeling disappointed by the synthetic aftertaste from your el-cheapo Advent Calendars, never fear… I’ve got something here to perk up your taste-buds. Some of our favourite stores and brands are running Advent promotions and competitions to get you back into the Christmas spirit, here’s a quick run-down of some of my favourites…
Every day from the 2nd – 8th December, the brand will be unveiling a Christmas treat available with online purchases. I’d love to give you a full run-down of what will be on offer but the bods at Clinique HQ are keeping their secret’s firmly under wraps until the morning of the offer.
They have, however, released a few teasers which include…
Monday 2nd December – The Christmas party must-have
Tuesday 3rd December – All you need is Comfort & Joy this season
Wednesday 4th December – Treats for everyone
Thursday 5th December - All you’ll want for Christmas is this
Friday 6th December - A Happy Friday it shall be
Saturday 7th December - A cracking treat
Sunday 8th December - You’ll wish it could be Christmas everyday
Log on to www.clinique.co.uk each morning to discover the latest treat….
