Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar

It would simply be impossible to give my top 10 beauty calendars without incuding the exlusive beauty calendar at Selfridges filled with all the top brands. The calendar has a baby pink design with an illustration of Selfridges on the front, sealed with their trademark yellow. It has draws to host each treat and includes brands such as Laura Mercia, Nars and includes a Selfridges Complimentary Beauty Concierge Appointment. The value of this contents is £500 but you can buy it for £210. This is definitely one of my favourites.

The Fragrance Shop Advent Calendar

If you struggle to committ to a perfume The Fragrance Shop’s first ever calendar is  a chance to audition new scents. As well as fragrance offerings from the likes of Calvin Klein, Pepe Jeans and Jennifer Lopez, the 25 doors also hide make-up and skincare surprises it’s unsurprising that you don’t receive a full-size fragrance. However, one door does include a £10 voucher off your next purchase of £40 or more and at £69.50 it's easy on the pocket.

Essense Advent Calendar


This is one of the most festive calendars I have reviewed, folding out to reveal a picture-perfect snowy street plus one fo the must budget friendly calendars too at only £24.99. The Christmas theming doesn’t stop there as the 24 gifts inside include several limited edition cosmetics designed specifically for the season, including a gingerbread colour-changinglip balm! 

Was £24.99 now only £16.25 available at www.justmylook.com

Charlotte Tilbury Advent Calendar

This advent calendar for me is one of the more visually stunning and comes in the form of a glamorous, glittering set of drawers packed with some of the brand’s bestsellers. There are only 12 gifts, but a quarter of these are full-size and even the travel size products go a long way. It is definitely one my favourites I love everything from the gorgeous packaging, the fact there is a mix of some of the popular old school products such as pillow talk matte lippy to new releases such as pillow talk push up mascara!
