Once a cult favourite of beauty editors, Tatcha has generated a massively loyal global following of those who love skincare formulated for makeup lovers. Each product is meant to help create the perfect canvas on which to apply makeup.

Just wish Sephora would come to the UK. Was lucky to be in USA a couple of years back, just as the sets came out and was lucky enough to buy them for myself and daughter…we still talk about them now.

My girls are older now and want the Sephora Advent calendars – stepping up the game . Great product choices .

Love an advent calendar with a lot of skin care and this Sephora one looks extra nice this year. May have to pick one up.

Did Sephora bring the shower cream caps back or are they only in the calendar? I remember I loved them a few years ago and then they were no longer available. Going to go check!

melisamcntsh10@ Dave love Wild Wishes Advent Calendar beautiful
Jamie JohnsonOctober 18, 2020 at 6:24 pm
Oh wow!! All those lovely sets, just incredible! I got a similar Tatcha duo set with that Water Cream and the Cleanser, and let me tell you something! That cream is the BEST facial creams I’ve ever used in my life! I just wish it wasn’t so dang expensive! But I got mine free as a Birthday gift from Sephora or at least I know I got a really good deal on it, just like these gorgeous gift sets! And a lot of times when you buy one of those, they give you something else just for you. Pretty great deal if you ask me. Thanks for sharing this great piece, Dave!! xoxoJJ
