Myer and L'Oréal have answered our prayers with the limited edition Myer Beauty Box - the ultimate advent calendar for beauty junkies (or anyone who just wants something other than chocolate to ring in the festive season). Because in a month when champagne quickly turns into a daily indulgence and your weekends take you from poolside to parties, starting the day off with chocolate is the last thing we need. But a new eye cream, mascara or make-up remover? Now we're talking.

The Myer Beauty Box by L'Oréal is chock full of 24 luxury treats to see you through December - and you're going to want every single one. Retailing for $160 but containing around $300 worth of product, it includes bestsellers from Lancôme, Giorgio Armani, YSL, Kiehls, Clarisonic and Viktor & Rolf, from Lancôme's Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate to Giorgio Armani's Eyes to Kill Mascara and a mini YSL Paris EDP.

Only 2000 of the boxes have been produced; get in quick because they're expected to sell out. Find them exclusively at select Myer stores.
