The start of December is about to begin, which means only one thing: Christmas is just around the corner! If you’re someone that can’t wait until the 25th of December to open all your presents, then countdown in style with a beauty advent calendar that offers daily mini-sized products that are super cute and practical. Be warned - spoilers ahead!
Diptyque Advent Calendar
This year’s Diptyque Advent Calendar certainly doesn’t disappoint and is perfect for those obsessed with the French fragrance brand. The best part? 15 of the 25 gifts inside are mini-sized candles, including best-selling scents like Baies, 34, and Feu de Bois.
Net-a-Porter Beauty 25 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar
We couldn’t believe our eyes when the Net-a-Porter Advent Calendar arrived in the office. Besides its super chic black and white packaging, we love what is inside, too. Think luxury offerings from Charlotte Tilbury, Oribe, Hourglass and Erno Laszlo.
Mecca Max Counting Stars 12 Day Advent Set
Don’t underestimate the size of the Mecca Max advent calendar; it’s filled with 12 tiny yet practical samples for lips, eyes and cheeks that are bound to be on high-rotation this party season.
Kiehl’s Limited Edition Advent Calendar
Could the Kiehl’s Advent Calendar be any cuter? Open the briefcase to reveal 24 windows filled with treats for the face and body, including Kiehl’s favourites such as Lip Balm #1, Ultra Facial Moisturizer and Super Multi-Corrective Cream.
The Body Shop 25 Days of the Enchanted Ultimate Advent Calendar
The Body Shop’s Advent Calendar is definitely one of the most impressive this year, due to its size and weight alone. Inside, each slot is filled with a deluxe mini sample of some of the brand’s most outstanding products, such as a Body Lotion in Almond Milk & Honey, Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, and Drops Of Youth Youth Day Cream.
L’Occitane Magic Premium Advent Calendar - Best Of L'Occitane Collection
24 deluxe samples of face and body products from L’Occitane? How could anyone refuse. We’re also huge fans of the gorgeous box itself, which is equipped with sliding windows that can later be used to store little trinkets post-festive season.
ASOS The ASOS Grooming Advent Calendar
This year, ASOS has ensured that even your other half can get in on the beauty advent calendar game with their 12-piece Grooming Advent Calendar. Highlights include a mix of products for his skin and hair from brilliant brands like LAB Series, Clarins and Clinique.
Molton Brown Opulent Infusions Advent Calendar
Be warned, the sheer weight of the Molton Brown Advent Calendar is enough to put your back out… but we promise, it’s totally worth it. Pop open the 24 little boxes to reveal tiny surprises for your shower, body and home.
Iconic London Girl About Town Advent Calendar
Housed in a pretty illustration of a Victorian terrace, Iconic London’s advent calendar contains mini versions of their cult products, such as the Strobing Stick and Illuminator Glow, along with cute additions like lip liners and face brushes.
