The trend of beauty advent calendars is not slowing down. There are now dozens of them on the market all calling out to us to flash the cash. However, there are only so many miniature lotions and potions you can have before your cabinet is overrun with tiny little bottles so we complied a list of the top five calendars that we recommend treating yourself to (or someone special if you’re super nice like that)!
For The Nail-obsessed
Ciate Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar, £50
Are you obsessed with nails? Because this is literally a calendar of nail dreams. Ciate were one of the beauty advent calendar originators and each year their offerings just gets better and better. This year’s calendar includes 23 nail polishes and a nail file with new and exclusive shades and nail treatments.
For the Bathtime Babe
The Body Shop 24 Happy Days Beauty Advent Calendar, £48
We love a good pamper, especially when it comes to the winter, when the nights draw in and you want nothing more than to have a hot bath and then snuggle before hopping into bed. The Body Shop’s offering is not only loaded with bathtime treats like gorgeous gels and lotions to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth it also includes a few makeup items like a polish and even an eyelash curler.
For the Jewellery Junkie
Topshop Jewellery Advent Calendar, £28
If you’re not much into beauty (huh?) or more likely you have all the products that you could have possibly need then this jewellery calendar for you. Of course for just £28 you’re not going to get forever pieces, but every single piece is wearable and on trend!
For the Boys
ClarinsMEN 12 Days of Christmas Set, £65
Because who said the girls should be the only one getting in on the deluxe calendar action? If your man, dad, son or gramps is into his cleansing routine then why not treat them to the give of good skin on the run up to Christmas! The gifts include serum, face wash, aftershave soother and more.
For the Treat Yo’self Moment
Charlotte Tilbury 2016 Holiday Advent Calendar, £150
Ok, we’ll say it straight off the bat – this is a big splurge, especially for an advent calendar. However, if you’re already a fan of Tilbury’s gorgeous products and you want to treat yourself then this is a no brainer. It includes 12 draws of deluxe sample sizes and full-sized products so considering the cost a single Tilbury product it works out really good value.
