The Best Beauty Advent Calendars For The Holidays

The countdown to Christmas has officially begun! Whether you like it or love it it’s time to start thinking about advent calendars, and if you aren’t a fan of the idea of snacking on chocolate every day you might want to think about grabbing a beauty advent calendar and having an exquisite little present every morning. They’re packed to the brim with the best our favourite brands have to offer. They usually sell out pretty quickly so get them while you can! Here are our favourites:


Benefit Party Poppers is full of surprises. Packed with 12 Benefit favourites, such as They’re Real! Mascara and High Beam, it sings you a song too. For real. When you open it, it plays an original “Bene-song”. Haven’t tried Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup range yet? This advent calendar will definitely tempt you to take the plunge. Tilbury packed her advent calendar with her best makeup and skincare products. It’s not to be missed!


The perfect gift for any nail polish addict, Ciatè advent calendar contains 18 neutral and colourful shades in different finishes, plus several nail treatments. Whatever your nails need, they’ll find it here. For the first time, Diptyque has jumped on the advent calendar bandwagon, and did so in style too. Their offering features 24 sweet-scented treats, including fragrances, body butters, and candles.

Have a merry fragrant Christmas with Jo Malone. The Georgian townhouse-shaped advent calendar features 24 scented treats, including their most popular colognes.

Don’t let the harsh Christmas weather cause havoc on your hair! Keep your locks in top shape with Kerastase’s first advent calendar. Inside, there are 25 popular products in travel, mini, and full sizes. What better way to relax after a long, tiring, and freezing winter day than a relaxing hot bath? Lush’s advent calendar is packed with Lush’s wintry and Christmassy bath bombs, shower gels, and shower creams.

Do you feel overwhelmed when shopping at Selfridges too? If you never know which counter to visit first, pick up their advent calendar. It features the best beauty treats the famous department store has to offer.

The Body Shop’s advent calendar is always a feast for the body, and this year is no exception. The cute box contains body butters, soaps, lotions, and a lot more. There’s even some makeup in there!

    I’m hoping I’ll be able to find at least one of these this year! Where I’m from, we only have the chocolate advent calendars and I’m not a too big fan of those… :D


    • You can always try it online :)
