I remember the joy of getting a new advent calendar each year as a child. A little chocolate treat each day to mark the countdown to Christmas day. The novelty wore off as I got older because having a mummy-approved chocolate a day was no longer a thrill.
That was until I discovered beauty advent calendars. Some clever clog came up with substituting the 25 chocolates within an advent calendar with beauty products and that person deserves a massive manicured pat on the back from moi.
From Jo Malone to Benefit Cosmetics, there have been some fabulous beauty advent calendars for 2014 but they have flown off shelves and sold out. We have a few days left until glam girls everywhere will kick off the advent calendar window opening, so I did a round up of the best beauty advent calendars still available to purchase.
Last Chance To Buy: Beauty Advent Calendars of 2014
1. Liberty Advent Calendar £149
I am currently hooked on Season 2 of “Liberty of London” on Channel 4 (Omar is my fave!). Nothing better than a behind the scenes documentary of one of London’s most iconic shopping destinations. This Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar features £420 worth of beauty favourites and includes well-known brands such as Diptique, Eve Lom and Nars.
2. Ciate Mini Mani Manor Advent £49
Any lover of a mani is a lover of Ciate. They take colour and texture to another level with their pretty paint pots with little black bows. The Ciate Mini Mani Manor is filled with mini paint pots and special effects to ensure you nails are super glam this holiday season. (Am loving the “Fade to Griege” colour at the moment, perfect for winter!)
3. Elemis 12 Days Of Beauty £59.50
The much loved British spa and beauty brand has a 12 Days Of Beauty gift set worth £113 to take you from the first day of Christmas and into the New Year. If you started off with one of the advents above to take you up to Christmas day and then carry on through December with the Elemis 12 Days Of Beauty you could have a beauty treat every day in December! Now that’s what I’m talking about.
Now hurry, hurry, hurry – not much time is left to buy these awesome beauty advent calendars.
