It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars 🎅❄

Good afternoon all,

Another Christmas post in September????” I hear you all saying…..but you need to keep reading in order to snap these beauties up in time!!

As a child, one of my favourite parts of the lead up to Christmas, was choosing an Advent Calendar….And as I have got older, not a lot has changed; except the contents of the calendar! (…..and maybe the price!).

I have done quite a bit of research into this year’s festive beauty calendars, and I tell you all about them below. I’ve tried to pick a variety of brands, and they’re all £70 and under, however if you have a larger budget, there are so many calendars on the market, from the likes of Diptique, Jo Malone and Clarins……don’t forget to snap them up fast though- they tend to fly off shelves, due to their limited availability.

I really think that these are such a nice idea for an early Christmas present, or if you just feel like treating yourself in preparation for the seasonal festivities! 🎁

They’re also fab, if you’re wanting to ‘try before you buy’ products, as you get so many items for the cost you pay, and the sizes are great for sampling.

1.Asos- The Beauty Calendar £50

This sleek monochrome calendar includes 24 skincare, make-up and hair care products. Each day, you will see products from the likes of Dermalogica, Cowshed, Batiste and Elemis. In total, the box is worth £175, meaning you’re making a huuuuuuge saving of £125! Not only that, but the packaging also turns into a reusable box, after you’ve emptied the calendar- bonus! This is already available online, so you can grab it by clicking here.

2. Look Fantastic- 2016 Advent Calendar £70

The first thing that is instantly noticeable about this calendar, is it’s beautiful packaging, and rose gold colouring! (You know how I feel about rose gold if you saw my post about Christmas wrapping here.) This available to pre-order now here, for deliveries estimated in October! This one doesn’t give you much of an insight of the products that will be included, but looking at previous calendars, it’ll be a gooden! Again, a huge saving of £230, as this one is worth a whopping £300!!!

3.Lush- 12 Days of Christmas £52.95


Now, this one isn’t currently available to purchase, as of yet, but keep your eyes peeled, and keep checking the website here so you don’t miss out! 🙂 This particular calendar includes 12 Christmas bath bombs! I can’t wait to see what they all are!

4. Benefit- Girl O’ Clock Rock £34.50


Wow! Wow! Wow! Benefit never disappoint when it comes to any sort of gift set…. This beautiful calendar includes 12 mini sizes of some of their best selling products, such as the They’re real mascara, the Hoola bronzer and their High Beam highlight…. and all at such an amazing price! This one is released on 14/10/2016 and you can grab it here!

5. Ciate- Advent Calendar 2016 £50


Again, another beautifully presented calendar, but this one is for the nail product lovers out there! This isn’t currently available, however keep your eyes peeled on both the Selfridges and Look Fantastic websites for the release! 24 beautiful shades of great quality nail varnishes!

What is your favourite???? Have you tried any of these in previous years? Which one will you be grabbing this year?


Lots of love, Shona xo
