Christmas is coming, people

Forget chocolates, finding beauty treats behind little advent doors is so much more interesting. There’s nothing better than gifting yourself a Diptyque candle, Jo Malone fragrance or L’Occitane body lotion each day, right? So, get clued up on the best beauty advent calendars as and when they launch.

The Christmas countdown has officially begun, and as well as learning how to make your very own wine Christmas tree or the best Christmas cocktails, you’re probably excited to crack open your beauty advent calendar come December.

If you’re a skincare enthusiast, Clarins is a cult favourite when it comes to beauty advent calendars. Their 12 Day Christmas Calendar is complete with their world famous, iconic beauty buys – including their Beauty Flash Balm, Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, as well as some new favourites, it’s 12 treats you don’t want to miss.

If you’re more of a fragrance fanatic, treat yourself to an advent calendar specialising in scent. After 24 days of surprising yourself with Jo Malone’s Christmas Advent Calendar, you’ll possibly be the happiest person on the planet. Including candles and mini perfumes galore, you’ll feel well and truly pampered.

And if the word Diptyque sets your heart a-flutter, you’ll hyperventilate when you see their advent calendar, which drops in November. Behind each door usually either a mini candle, skincare luxury or home fragrance treat. Thought your home smelled good before? It’s got nothing on the 25 days after opening these doors.

So before you resort to buying another standard chocolate advent calendar, give your taste buds a rest and scope out the best beauty advent calendars for 2017 here.
