Its that time of the year again where all the chocolate calenders come out in the supermarkets and they are everywhere. I am the Cadburys kind of girl.Around two years a go we saw the rise of beauty advent calendars and now each year there are so many to chose from it’s almost an impossible decision. If you aren’t familiar with a beauty advent calendar, behind each door up until Christmas you are met with travel (and some times full) sized products that you can try out and use. Definitely a little more long lasting than the chocolate that’s for sure. It’s a great pre-christmas gift or treat and also a nice way to discover new brands and products you might not have discovered otherwise. I’m going to give you a brief run down of some of the calendars I’ve got my hands on this year, and don’t worry, I don’t give away the entire contents, only a few sneak peeks. I don’t want to be ruining the surprise for you!
NYX, £60- NYX is fast becoming one of our go-to brands for makeup, their matte lip creams, dewy highlighters and pigment-packed eyeshadows rival many high end brands when it comes to quality. Now you can get all their hero products in a 24-piece advent calendar, perfect for both beauty beginners and the makeup obsessed, alike.
Jo Malone, £280 – Jo Malone has gone to town this Christmas (and not only in its uber pretty Georgian townhouse design) – this decadent collection contains both mini perfumes and scented body creams. So if you’re a perfume fanatic and can’t decide on one to put on your Christmas wish list, this is perfect.
Kiehls, £95 – The must-have calendar for all you skincare junkies. 24 of their award-winning products (in adorable travel-sized packaging), including cult favourites like Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Creme de Corps.
In conclusion, this year is definitely the best year for choice with beauty advent calendars and there is no doubt that many people will be opening these doors every day with excitement and surprise. It’s all down to personal preference when it comes to choosing one, but hopefully this has enlightened you and given you a bit of guidance. So whether you want to stick to your chocolate calendar or switch it up for something different, the choice in endless.
