Chocolate advent calendars are a thing of the past for many, as it’s now all about getting your beauty fix at Christmas. After all, who doesn’t want the excitement of opening a door to find a deliciously decadent beauty product to pamper yourself with throughout the whole month of December?

This year, the leading beauty brands have upped their game and released some of the most incredible advent calendars we’ve ever seen.

Indulgence is this year’s theme and some of our favourite brands, such as Jo Malone, Charlotte Tilbury, L’Occitane and Net-a-Porter, have set the bar very high.

Each calendar is jam-packed full of goodies from small bottles of perfume to handy travel minis of skincare, make-up and hair products you simply can’t live without.

The choice means there really is a beauty advent calendar for everyone - so you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect one for you, or your loved one.
