In recent years, traditional chocolate-filled advent calendars have fallen by the wayside in favor of more extravagant ones, in particular, ones that are bursting with beauty goodies to see us through the entire festive season. If you have any makeup junkies in your life, or are a cosmetics fanatic yourself, we’ve rounded up some of the best and most in-demand advent calendars of the year.
Packed with everything from cruelty-free, vegan bath products to cult-favorite makeup items and mini candles from luxury brands, these are all a major step up from your basic chocolate advent calendars. What’s more, with the combined value of the products they contain, these are pretty good value too – or at least, that’s how we’re justifying it. Peep our selection, which includes in-demand calendars from the likes of YSL Beauty, Charlotte Tilbury and The Body Shop, as well as retailers like ASOS and Selfridges, below and get in the holiday spirit.
