Eight Awesome Advent Calendars!

OK! So before we start, I’m gonna warn you, some of these calendars are sold out online, so if they have and you REALLY want them, just give you local store a call ASAP to see if they have any left there! However, most of these are still in stock so keep scrolling because I promise, there are some great advent calendars here! PS. Next year I’ll learn my lesson and post this earlier!!!! Sorry guys!


Clarins ’12 Days of Christmas’ Calendar

I’m such a huge Clarins fan and this calendar is SUCH a treat! It contains 12 treats, all of them really generous travel sizes and some of them are full sized. It’s a great mix of their iconic skincare (SO GOOD!) as well as treats like their lip perfecters, mascara and even a scented candle in their classic Eau Dynamisante fragrance! For the Clarins super-fans, there’s also a 24 days of christmas calendar which contains DOUBLE the products for a mere £35 extra! At the time of posting, both these calendars are still in stock!

BareMinerals ‘Box of Wonders’ Calendar

Much like above, BareMinerals have also created two Box of Wonders Calendars, one with 12 gifts, a second with 24 gifts! The 12 days of Christmas box can be found at BareMinerals.co.uk and it is currently on offer for £60 (RRP £100) and it contains a lovely mix of their mineral eyeshadows, blush, glow and lip colours. As for the larger, 24 days of Christmas set, this contains a hefty selection of all of this and so much more. Weirdly, the price of the larger set is £69, so it seems like wayyyyy more of a bargain, but the sizes of the products are much smaller. So have a good look at what’s inside and if you prefer to get less items in larger sizes, or more items in smaller sizes… the choice is yours as both sizes are still in stock!


Charlotte Tilbury ‘Naughty & Nice Magic Box’

Could this be the most enviable of all the christmas advent calendars?! I think so!! This Charlotte Tilbury ‘Naughty & Nice Magic Box’ is absolutely stunning, it’s packed full of all of Charlotte’s most treasured goodies, from the Magic Cream to mascara, Eyes to Mesmerise to clay mask. It really is stunning and I’m SO insanely excited to dive into this one from mid-December! Oh and you know that once this is empty, it will make an awesome desk tidy too!  At the time of posting, this calendar is still in stock!!

M&S Beauty Advent Calendar

M&S Beauty Advent Calendar

This is one of the most sought after advent calendars of the year! Maybe it’s because it’s because filled with a vast array of beautiful brands and products, or maybe because it’s insane value?! Who knows! Whatever the reason, the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar has almost sold out, in fact, it’s completely sold out online and now it’s only available in store. So hop in the car / bus / train and scour your local store to get one before they all go! Believe me, it’s worth it, it’s filled with the most insane collection of products reportedly worth over £250! I never say the word ‘Epic’, but this calendar is worthy of the adjective! Brands included: Nuxe, Stila, Balance Me, Ultrasun, Rodial, Pixi, Korres, Shay & blue, Ren….. so many it’s impossible to list them all!

The Body Shop 'Wondercube'

The Body Shop ‘Wondercube’

This year, The Body Shop has teamed up with fashion favourite House of Holland to produce a VERY special advent calendar. As crazy as it sounds, I played with this for AGES when I got it, because it’s kind of like a puzzle, rubix cube or or something I used to make out of paper as a child with questions on the inside (know the ones I mean!?). Anyway, this The Body Shop ‘Wondercube’ is an 8-day calendar filled with Body Shop favourites like Vitamin E moisturiser, Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome, Mango Body Scrub, Soaps and bunny ears. The thing I love about the calendar is how everything is super fun and super practical, I mean a 50ml face cream?! That’s amazing! Possibly too amazing as it’s already sold out online, so again, pop into your local The Body Shop to try and hunt one down!

YOU Advent Calendar

YOU Advent Calendar

OK! Here’s one that’s amazing and ALSO available online! That’s because the YOU Advent Calendar is available exclusively at Latest In Beauty who are an online retailer. So! What’s in the box? Brands like Nip + Fab, ESPA, The White Company, This Works, Ren, Dr Organic and Make-up Revolution. It’s literally an insane bundle and it’s price at £60 but contains over £230 of products. You can thank me later!

Elemis Advent Calendar

Elemis Advent Calendar

Elemis fans get ready to pop in store ASAP as the Elemis Calendar is also almost out of stock! However, as good as this advent calendar is, I have to say, the Elemis gift selection this year is OFF THE CHARTS! They have everything from crackers to skincare duos to gift sets of insane proportions!!!! Seriously! Go check it out and if you can get your hands on a calendar, do it!

Benefit 'SF Winter WonderGlam' Calendar

Benefit ‘SF Winter WonderGlam’ Calendar

Danngggg!!! This Benefit Calendar is stunning!!!!! It includes travel sized versions of alllllll my Benefit favourites! From High Beam to Roller Lash, Hoola to Benetint, it really has it all! I always love benefit minis because they are perfect for handbags and traveling, they still last an age, but they are lighter and easier to carry around! I would actually buy all my Benefit make up in mini sizes like this if I could because it just just so much more compact! Anyway, this advent calendar is awesome and if you want one… again! Pop in store soon as they are again, super limited! DAMN! These calendars sell out FAST!!! Oh and check out their Christmas Gift section, there’s still some great items left!

And there we have it, Eight Awesome Advent Calendars! I hope you like them! Comment below and let me know if you will be getting a beauty advent calendar this year!
