Forget chocolate, the beauty advent calendars are back! It might only be October but these sell out each year so be sure to snap one up soon if you're planning an early Christmas treat. Here's a round up of some of my favourites on offer to countdown the festive season..
Benefit Party Poppers £34.50
Celebrate the 12 days of Christmas with Benefit revealing some of their bestselling products including a mini POREfessional, They're real! and BADgal lash mascaras, lip glosses, highlighters and a lip and cheek stain. It's currently out of stock online but will be available in Benefit stores and at Debenhams from this weekend so you've got another chance to get your hands on one.
Launched online today the No7 beauty wonders calendar features 6 full sized products alongside the miniatures. Hiding behind the 25 doors you'll find a new nail colour, an eyelash curler and their Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced day and night creams. It's an ideal introduction to the brand if you're looking to try out some of their beauty and skincare products and at a great price too!
Selfridges Cosmic Beauty £95.00
Start your Christmas countdown in style with 24 luxurious miniatures in the Selfridges Cosmic Beauty calendar. This would be perfect if you're looking to splash out and treat yourself with some popular high end beauty brands including Kiehls, Lancome, Urban Decay and YSL. It even contains a miniature (7ml) of one of my favourite fragrances, Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb. Definitely one for my wishlist!
The Body Shop 24 Happy Days £60.00
You'll be smelling fabulous all December with the Body Shop's 24 Days of Happy featuring their Christmas body lotions and soaps in Frosted Cranberry and Frosted Plum. The boxes also contain some of their newest launches including a 10ml bottle of their Italian Summer Fig fragrance alongside some miniatures from their popular Vitamin E skincare range.
Jo Malone £260.00
If money were no object I'd be running to the shops to get my hands on the Jo Malone calendar! This is one of the most luxurious ones I've seen this year which is reflected in its rather high price point. Nestled in their signature Georgian townhouse you'll find body cremes and colognes in their array of scents including my favourite Pomegranate Noir. It's currently exclusive to Harrods but will be available in stores from November.
Will you be counting down to Christmas with a beauty calendar this year?
