It feels absolutely insane as I write the words ‘advent calendar’ but yes we are already in November. I’m super late this year as I have usually started Christmas shopping by now, but this year I feel like that festive feeling hasn’t quite started yet. However what has is the advertising for the amazing selection of beauty advent calendars.
I think up until about 3 years (ish) ago you would rarely see anything but a chocolate advent calendar fast forward to 2017 and the selection is huge. So I thought I would show you a selection of the ones I am lusting after, because who doesn’t like a pre-Christmas treat!?
Boots – Soap and Glory £40 – Soap and Glory gift set = Christmas, doesn’t it? Including make up and their signature skincare favourites this advent calendar has something for everyone.
Boots – Lancome £95 – Luxury skincare at its best with this beautiful Lancome advent calendar. This is a great way to try a huge range of new skincare without the huge price tag to go with it.
Boots – Sleek £35 – If you like the Sleek brand then this is a must-have. It includes makeup and brushes, not quite enough for a full face but not far off either, and for £35 is great value for money.
Very.co.uk – NYX £50 – With a range of shades from everyday wearable nudes to bold and bright night out reds and 3 different finishes you really can’t go wrong with this advent calendar.
ASOS – Various brands £55 – If you are looking for popular brands and cult favourites to try out pre-Christmas, this is definitely the calendar for you, with a new skincare or makeup surprise behind each door.
Body Shop – £45 – Including skincare, beauty tools and makeup this advent calendar is a real bargain, considering the cost of the products separately, the £45 price tag is totally worth it!
Benefit Cosmetics – Benefit £34.50 – Another year, another Benefit Christmas special, this is packed full of mini Benefit products including the favourites such as the Roller Lash mascara and Hoola bronzer.
Marks and Spencer – Various brands – £35 – Extremely cute packaging and such a reasonable price for the M&S beauty calendar which includes some very big brand names in the beauty business.
Look Fantastic – Various Brands – £79 – This is called Beauty in wonderland which surely is a good enough reason to buy it alone. If not then the packaging? The calendar includes some mini make up and skincare items but also some full sized products too!
