We all love chocolate advent calendars. Milk, white, dark, they all taste GREAT. However, this December we are breaking up with chocolate and getting it on with our favourite beauty goodies. Beauty Advent Calendars have recently expanded and taken over the Christmas countdown market, with heaps of popular beauty brands creating their own unique calendars each year. We have found 5 amazing options that might just convince you to bag a beauty advent calendar this Christmas. (Besides, you can always buy a chocolate one too).

If you’re looking for a calendar that will offer you a whole range of beauty products by brands you may not have tried before, you should definitely consider buying this one. It is not being released until the start of November, so keep an eager eye out. If you are a Selfridges fan, you may want to also check out their other cosmetic advent calendar, ‘Cosmic Beauty’.

The clean packaging of the calendar reminds us a frosty morning, and the amazing range of polish shades you get for under £50 is pretty impressive. The only problem is, how will you choose what colour to wear?

Firstly, it’s Charlotte Tilbury. Excited yet? Charlotte’s new beauty advent calendar contains a mix of travel size skin care and full size products which will last you for 12 days of Christmas, (but at least you can spend the other 12 days smothering your body with your new goodies). It is the perfect way to explore Charlotte’s range, as you open up the drawers to reveal exciting and beautiful skin care and makeup delights. We love the design and classic theme of this calendar, (you could always re-use it afterwards as a storage container), and well, you can never go wrong with Charlotte Tilbury.

We love the classy and elegant design of this calendar, (and the fact that everything inside is gorgeous). It’ll set you back £250, but if you’re a Diptyque worshipper, this is what dreams are made of.
