There’s no better way to celebrate Christmas for the whole of December than with advent calendars.
Everyone remembers waking up and popping open that little window, eagerly anticipating a chocolate that symbolised another day closer to Christmas.
But instead of chocolate, these new beauty style calendars surprise with a new beauty product to try every single day.
With calendars available for a range of budgets, these gifts are the perfect solution for the beauty queen in everyone’s life.
This year, Sephora’s limited-edition advent calendar is themed as an enchanted fairy tale, with each day opening to a new beauty surprise.
Products all come from the Sephora Collection and range from eyeshadows, lipsticks and brow kits, to bath bombs, charcoal nose stripes and compact mirrors. This calendar is perfect for the beauty queen just starting out, or for someone who likes a bit of everything.
Combining designs of Castelbajac Paris, a renowned French fashion designer on the packaging, with quality L’Occitane products inside, this colourful calendar’s 24 travel-sized products are the perfect preparation for the holidays.
Featuring products with shea butter, almond milk and cherry blossoms as the main ingredients, this collection of shower gels, oils, hand creams and soaps will leave skin smooth and healthy.
Gift wrapped in a beautiful purple owl box, this advent calendar is one of three from the Body Shop this year.
Pop open one of the 24 doors to reveal a perfect sampler of Body Shop favourites, including shower gels, hand creams, body scrubs and makeup products. Accessories including exfoliating gloves, brow and lash brushes and sponges make this box an all-round beauty gift.

Included is Clinique’s famous 3-step skincare that helps to clean skin and make it feel its best, including the Liquid Facial Soap for cleansing, the Clarifying Lotion for exfoliating and the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion for moisturizing.
With a value of $345, this set includes more than just skincare and also features lipsticks and lip primers, mascaras and perfume sprays.
Inspired by the iconic punk fashion of the 1970’s, NARS’ limited edition advent calendar comes housed in an eye-catching red spiked box and features 24 products of NARS’ star-studded favourites.
Products include the Orgasm Blush, Laguna Bronzing Powder and Custard Radiant Creamy Concealer, as well as lipsticks, lip pigments and pencils.

At the highest end of advent calendars, Jo Malone’s London Advent Calendar is the ultimate splurge gift that beauty lovers will rejoice over.
Colourful windows and doors open up to reveal both full and travel size products, including brand signatures such as colognes, perfumes and candles.
In recent years, this product has sold out within days, a testament to its quality and luxury status.
