6 Beauty Advent Calendars You Need in Your Life ASAP
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.) Here, six 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.
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 oil, shea butter foot cream and cherry blossom shimmering lotion? Don’t mind if we do.
Clarins Holiday Rituals
This plant-based French skin-care brand is especially great for sensitive skin, but this holiday collection features travel-sized samples for all skin types. Also included? Some pretty party picks, like the rose lip gloss that will add a hint of shimmer to your pout. Joyeux Noël to us.
Body Shop 25 Days of the Enchanted Ultimate Advent Calendar
Featuring 14 full-size products (including the purifying Himalayan charcoal face mask) and nine delightful minis, this forest-inspired calendar also comes with fun daily tasks to help you reconnect with nature. In other words? It’s the full self-care package.
Body Shop ($225)
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.
Ole Henriksen ($69)
Sephora Collection Wish Upon a Star Advent Calendar
For those of us who are obsessed with Sephora (i.e., everyone), this is basically the Christmas countdown of our dreams. Featuring 12 festive beauty products from the Sephora Collection (including the ultra-popular blending sponge and false lashes), this is one way to definitely ensure that your days will be merry and bright.
Diptyque Advent Calendar
This one doesn’t come cheap, but if you can’t treat yourself at Christmas, then when can you? A chic package that features 15 mini votives, seven gorgeous fragrance samples and two lavish body care products.
