Beauty advent calendars: these days it’s easier to pick out the brands not doing them than those who are. But all this choice can feel all too overwhelming when it comes to picking the one you’re going to fork out for ahead of Christmas time, especially for the pricier ones. It can be difficult to know which ones really are worth their salt, particularly if you’re saving up for a special seasonal buy – and no one wants to be disappointed 25 mornings in a row when you open it up.
But luckily for you, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to and found the ones that actually are worth it, whether that’s because they have a high cost-value ratio, are from the most covetable brands, or just look pretty fantastic.
The list includes high-end buys that are guaranteed hits every year like calendars from Jo Malone London, Cult Beauty and Liberty London, as well as high-street favourites Soap & Glory, The Body Shop, and Rituals.
Whichever you choose to buy, you can trust that these ones are solid choices. Of course, a chocolate advent calendar will always be less expensive, but a beauty calendar makes for a luxurious treat every morning and if you’re always trying out new products, the variety is unbeatable. Now, the only hard part is waiting until December.
