We love a regular chocolate-filled advent calendar, but there is something so much more exciting about opening a little door and seeing a beauty product lying there, just begging to be used. So, ditch the sweet treats for beauty treats with our five favourite beauty advent calendars…
Party Poppers by Benefit, €46 exclusive to Debenhams and the Dublin Boutique.
All of Benefit’s innovative products are such great performers, and their Party Poppers Christmas calendar contains 12 of them! And, true to Benefit’s quirky style, when you open the calendar you’re hit with a little festive tune to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Kérastase Advent Calendar, €99.00 from Kérastase salons nationwide
Kérastase’s first ever deluxe advent calendar is filled with all of the brand’s hero products from each of its ranges, including Elixir Ultime and Thérapiste. We want this, we need this, so badly.
Charlotte Tilbury’s The Book of Make-up Magic, €195 at Brown Thomas
Beauty guru Charlotte Tilbury has made our Christmas. Seriously. The Book of Make-up Magic features 12 mini versions of her star products, including Magic Night Cream, which doesn’t launch until January. Exciting! One question, though: why aren’t there 24 products, Charlotte?!
No7’s 25 Days of Beauty Wonders, €49.50 at Boots.
Anything that contains a No.7 Protect & Perfect product seals the deal for us. And there is SO MUCH MORE to No7’s advent calendar, too. From bathing and skincare goodies to makeup and beauty tools, there is pretty much everything you could ever possibly want here.
