7 Beauty Advent Calendars You Need in Your Life ASAP
Sure, chocolate advent calendars were once the highlight of our December, but now that we’re all grown-up, beauty is basically the new Hershey’s. (But um, we still want holiday treats though.) Here, seven beauty advent calendars loaded with serums, creams, makeup and more to make your Christmas countdown truly delightful. The only hard part? Not opening every door at once.
Sephora Collection Winter Wonderland Advent Calendar
For those of us who are obsessed with Sephora (i.e., everyone), this is basically the Christmas countdown of our dreams. Featuring 24 makeup, skin-care and beauty products from the Sephora Collection (including the ultra plumping Lotus Sleep Mask), this is one way to definitely ensure that your days will be merry and bright.
L’Occitane Signature Advent Calendar
All those holiday parties and last-minute shopping trips can be stressful. Take some time to unwind this December with French beauty brand L'Occitane’s luxurious offerings. Almond shower gel, shea butter foot cream and cherry blossom shimmering lotion? Don’t mind if we do.
No7 Beauty Advent Calendar
From the cult British beauty brand, this 12-piece collection is full of positively brilliant picks including the Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Night Cream and the Air Brush Away Primer. Oh, and it had a 90,000-person wait list across the pond, so you might want to grab it while you can.
Clarins Advent Calendar
This plant-based French skin-care brand is especially great for those with sensitive skin. But this holiday collection features travel-sized samples for all skin types. Also included are some pretty party picks, like the Honey Glam Lip Oil that will add a hint of shimmer to your pout. Joyeux Noël, to us.
12 Days of OLE Glow Skincare Advent Calendar
Obsessed with hygge? Then you’ll love counting down to the holidays with this Danish skin-care line. The pampering advent calendar (or should we say, “julekalender”?) includes the best-selling Truth Serum and Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer.

12 Miracles of Beauty Advent Calendar
Worth a staggering $350 and full of premium skin-care brands (like Caudalie, Dermalogica and Dr Botanicals), this calendar makes the perfect gift for the beauty lovers in your life. Or you know, for yourself.

This one doesn’t come cheap, but if you can’t treat yourself at Christmas, then when can you? A chic package that features a full-size Diptyque candle, gorgeous fragrance samples, mini votives and lavish body care products.
