It may feel like a long way away, but with less than three months to go we can now officially say Christmas is coming – and the only thing that gets us more excited than the festive season is the incredible array of beauty advent calendars landing on shelves. Here’s our pick of the best ones on offer this year – but hurry, they’re already selling out fast!
The purveyors of all things bubbly are back with their annual box of treats, containing 25 beautifully-wrapped, fully-vegan products. This year’s offering includes a generous selection of the brand's iconic bath bombs along with festive favourites such as the North Pole bubble bar and the Polar Bear Soap. Tipped to be one of their most popular yet, the handmade container also doubles up as a gorgeous storage box. The calendar launched online on 26th August and will be in store from 25th September.
L’Occitane’s coveted Christmas collection is officially back for 2021. Our top pick? The Luxury Advent Calendar, jam-packed with an extensive collection of the French brand’s most premium products – including fan favourites as well as a slew of new arrivals. Each day you’ll be gifted with a new treat for your body, hair or skin for a well-deserved daily pamper. Highlights include an adorable mini version of the cult Almond Milk Concentrate and Almond Shower Gel, as well as everyday skincare heroes like the Overnight Reset Serum.
All I want for Christmas is… Avon's 24 Days of Wonder calendar, which this year contains over £135 worth of products for just £55. It's got everything a beauty buff could wish for, from rich hand and foot creams to nourishing nail treatments and relaxing pillow mists. Better yet, you'll be party season ready in no time thanks to its festive selection of lipsticks and eau de parfums.
Clinique’s iconic calendar is back, this year offering up £220 worth of goods for £95 – a saving of more than 50 per cent. It’s filled with 24 travel-sized treats, including your entire daily skincare routine plus show-stopping makeup and perfumes to get you ready for the festive season. Our top picks include the must-have Moisture Surge hydrator and concentrate, plus the cult Chubby Stick.
Is this the prettiest advent calendar on the market? It’s definitely up there thanks to its pop-up festive scene and cute pull-out drawers. Jam-packed with pampering treats, highlights include some cult classics like the Mango Body Yoghurt and Coconut Lip Butter, alongside bestselling beauty essentials like the Drops of Youth Concentrate and a Konjac sponge. The only problem? The box is so pretty you’ll want to keep it forever!
Vegan beauty aficionados, this one’s for you. Packed with clean, cruelty-free products from the likes of Q+A, Dr Organic and Faith in Nature, it’s no wonder this calendar has gained a cult following over the years. It’s packed full of £170 worth of products for a bargainous £45, but you’d better be quick – it’s tipped to sell out by mid-November!
