Somehow it’s November, Halloween has passed, and now Christmas is approaching faster than you can say Santa. This makes it the perfect time to mention some of my top beauty advent calendar picks for 2018. Gone are the days of Cadbury’s Chocolate Calendars, now other companies are getting in on the advent action and are making are making their own! From skincare and beauty, to luxury food and drink, there is an advent calendar out there for everyone.
Soap & Glory – It’s in the Calendar: £40
We are all familiar with the bold pink, girly, and pin-up style that is Soap & Glory. This advent calendar has an amazing combination of the cult favourite best sellers from their make-up and skin pampering products – all in a handy mini size! SPOILER ALERT, some of my personal favourites from the calendar are the Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Glosses and the Heel Genius Foot Cream (perfect for this time of year)! Even better, you can get it in Boots!
The Body Shop – 25 Days of the Enchanted, Deluxe Advent Calendar: £65
This year The Body Shop have released three Enchanted Forest themed advent calendars – each with a different character and price. This one is the mid-range option with ‘Dani the Deer’ as the main feature. Not only do you get a mix of full size and mini size products from across their makeup and skincare collections, but you can also find a challenge for each day to get you to reconnect with nature which is a concept I love!
ELEMIS – Advent Calendar: £150 – Limited Quantities Available
This year Elemis have released an Online Exclusive calendar filled with 25 luxurious miniatures from their skincare best sellers and new releases alike to lead you right up to Christmas Day. Stocks are limited so head to their website to be in with a chance of grabbing yours before they sell out!

L’Occitane – Classic Beauty Advent Calendar: £49
One of my favourites from the list, L’Occitane’s calendar for 2018 features some of their most loved, luxurious, pre-Christmas gifts for each day, from shower gels and shampoos, to soaps and Eau de toilette. This is an incredible collection of their best sellers including (SPOILER ALERT) the Shea Body Shower Oil and Ultra Rich Lip Balm, both leaving your skin nourished and smelling divine! This is one not to be missed!
The advent calendar market is growing year on year and it’s easy to see why!You can save A LOT of money, plus it’s a great way to try out lots of products from a brand you’ve been dying to test out!
