It’s that time of year when we start to think about Christmas gifts for loved ones and the occasional treat for ourselves. I’ve already had my first Caramel Brulée latte from Starbucks and have been constantly stalking the Sephora Holiday sets for the perfect deal. And let’s not forget that this is the prime purchasing time for Advent Calendars! Here’s my favourites this season…
#1 The Body Shop Advent Calendar
I unboxed one of these calendars last December. The Body Shop’s Advent calendars have 24-25 bath and body gifts to unbox each day leading up to christmas. There are four TBS calendars available this year ranging from $69CAD to $169CAD. I picked one up for my Mom, I’m sure she’ll love it!
#2 Lush Advent Box
The lush calendar is a 12 day gift box full of Lush products and retails for $114USD. As an avid bath taker I would looove this calendar. Lush isn’t something that I often treat myself to because of the price point so having 12 days of lush sounds like a fantastic way to relax over the holidays. And how cute is the snowman bubble bar!?
#3 L’Occitane Signature Advent Calendar
I got the L’Occitane Signature Advent Calendar for my Mom last year and she absolutely adored it! L’Occitane strikes me as a luxurious brand so it’s a great way to treat someone you love (or yourself!) to something nice. As far as beauty advent calendars go this one retails on the lower spectrum at $69CAD.
#4 L’Occitane Luxury Advent Calendar
If the L’Occitane Signature Advent Calendar isn’t quite luxurious enough for you, you can try the L’Occitane Luxury Advent Calendar. It’s quite a bit more expensive at $134CAD but you get the best of the best with this option.
#5 Look Fantastic Beauty In Wonderland Advent Calendar
The Look Fantastic Beauty Advent calendar always seems to sell out in record time. It’s still available though, for $115USD it could be yours! Included are 9 full sized beauty products and 16 deluxe sample sized products.
#6 Bare Minerals Box Of Wonders
This is a 24 day advent calendar that retails for $97CAD at Sephora. It contains lip products, eye shadows, face powders and more. I don’t have a lot of Bare Minerals products so I would love this Calendar!
#7 Essence “Bring The Bash” Advent Calendar
If you or someone you know adores affordable but great quality makeup, this Essence Advent Calendar would be a great option. It’s inexpensive at $39.99USD compared to just about all the other beauty advent calendars available right now and you get 24 gifts to open leading up to Christmas. This calendar is currently only available on the US Essence Makeup website.
#8 Benefit Cosmetics SF Winter WonderGLAM Calendar
The Benefit Cosmetics Calendar was briefly available in the UK for £34.50 before it sold out. I couldn’t find it on the Canadian or US websites. The calendar contained 12 deluxe sample sized Benefit Cosmetics products from their Roller Lash Mascara to the Hoola Bronzer.
#9 Ciaté London Mini Mani Month Nail Polish Set
If I didn’t have so much nail polish from Sub Boxes I would definitely be ordering this Ciaté nail set! You get a new nail colour for each day leading up to Christmas! This set is sold at Sephora for $70CAD. There is also a Ciaté 12 Days of London makeup calendar which retails at Sephora for $71CAD.
#10 Ulta 12 Days of Beauty
The Ulta 12 Days of Beauty is also an affordable option as far as Beauty Advent Calendars go. It retails for $22CAD on the Ulta Global website and contains 12 Ulta beauty products.
#11 Ole Henriksen 12 Days of Glow
The Ole Henriksen Skincare Advent Calendar retails at Sephora for $82CAD and contains 12 skincare minis for achieving glowing holiday skin. The skincare minis range from cleansers to scrubs to serums to eye cream.
#12 Charlotte Tilbury Naughty & Nice Advent Box
Okay, this box is WAY out of my price range at $250CAD and I was trying to keep this list on the more “affordable” side of things, but I HAD to include the Charlotte Tilbury advent calendar. There is always so much hype around this calendar and I see bloggers unboxing CT calendars every year for Christmas. Included is 12 Charlotte Tilbury makeup and skincare minis. If you can afford it (big if there) why not!?
Which advent calendar are you hoping for this December!?
There are so many advent calendars out there and I couldn’t possibly include all of them, but these are the ones that I would personally love to unbox this holiday season.
