The holiday season isn’t in, but it’s never too early to be counting down to Christmas! Yes, it may be 2 months away from now, but we can’t help getting excited over this season’s festive advent beauty calendars that we have lined up for all of us.
Advent calendars from big beauty brands such as L’Occitane and The Body Shop have started rolling out their beauty advent calendars and all we have to say is, we can’t wait for Christmas! I think we can all agree that the best part of Christmas isn’t just the holiday itself, but also the hype leading up to the big day! Here we’ve gathered six special beauty advent calendars that have been newly launched this season to ring in the holidays.
#1: Dior Advent Calendar
Dior’s travel trove of goodies is packed with 24 surprises to plunge into the magical world of a Dior Christmas. The façade of this limited advent calendar is inspired by the Christmas Midnight Wish which features products such as the brand’s iconic fragrances, beauty must-haves and many more gifts!
The Dior Advent Calendar ($550) will be available from November 2018 onwards.
#2: The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar
Love all things natural? Then, you’ll be glad to know that The Body Shop has dropped their new Beauty Advent Calendar and it’s filled with pampering treats! This new collection consists of a line-up of cruelty-free treats for you to add to your skincare, body care and makeup routines. On top of that, as the brand continuously campaigns to end animal testing, their new Beauty Advent Calendar is specially designed to transform into a picture puzzle that reveals some of the enchanting animals that live in our Enchanted Forests.
The Body Shop Ultimate Advent Calendar ($429; $229 only for members) will be available from November 1st onwards, at selected The Body Shop stores, while stocks last.
#3: Sephora Advent Calendar Set — Once Upon A Castle
Who needs Prince Charming when you can have this instead. Count down to Christmas with the highly-anticipated advent beauty calendar from Sephora. This Once Upon A Castle Calendar is an absolute bargain and is by far one of the most affordable they have this year. And fret not, the price of the calendar itself doesn’t scrimp on gifts. Expect a ton of beauty favourites from SEPHORA, which include lip stains, eye pencils, and even products for your skincare needs.
And it goes without saying that the castle-inspired advent calendar will look so pretty sitting in your bedroom. Score!
The Sephora Advent Calendar Set ($69) is now available online on Sephora.
