Calling all beauty lovers: the best beauty advent calendars have finally landed, and this year’s selection certainly does not disappoint. You might think it’s a little early to start thinking about the much-loved Christmas tradition, but with the most popular beauty advent calendar styles already selling out, it’s a good idea to shop your favourite options before they're gone for good.
Some calendars can set you back a pretty penny (and trust me, the best luxury beauty advent calendars are definitely worth the investment), but I’m here to point you in the direction of the best affordable beauty advent calendars on offer right now.
There’s an impressive selection for under £100 this year. As a beauty-obsessed shopping editor, the only thing I find more exciting than counting down to Christmas with a beauty treat each morning is finding a bargain product which allows me to do just that. Lucky then, that none of the beauty advent calendars in this list cost more than £100.
You might be currently in search of the best mascara or perhaps you're wondering which has been the best perfume for women this year, beauty advent calendars are a great way to try out new beauty products at a discounted price. Along with your favourite cult products, you’ll often find a few new pieces that you haven't tried before.
Multi-brand beauty advent calendars are the best way to treat yourself to products from all your favourite brands in one place, while single-brand options are perfect if you’re obsessed with one particular brand (The Body Shop, I’m looking at you). There’s a great selection of both of these available for under £100, and most of them include a healthy helping of full-sized products including candles, fragrance, skincare and of course make-up.
So whether you’re looking for a beauty advent calendar for yourself or simply want to treat the beauty-obsessed individual in your life ahead of the festive season, keep scrolling to find the best affordable beauty advent calendars under £100.
