The countdown to Christmas is here, and we’ve got the top beauty advent calendars to get you prepped for Dec. 25th.
ACQUA DI PARMA
A calendar in Acqua di Parma’s signature color is specially designed by artist, Gio Pastori and filled with recognizable bath and body products in just as recognizable scents like Blu Mediterraneo and Colonia and many others.
Don’t forget that your hair is just as important as your skin, especially in the winter. Balmain seems to know the 10 things you need for your tresses. Besides the obvious shampoo and conditioner, this box also includes a revitalizing mask and an Argan Moisturizing Elixir for hair-wear repair.
This calendar consists of 13 best-selling products, based off the Provence, France, tradition of 13 desserts at a holiday meal. Here you’ll find eau de toilette, body wash, soaps, lotion and more.
Celeb favorite Charlotte Tilbury has her hits on offer in this 12-piece set. Four full-size items include must-haves from the brand: Colour Chameleon in “Champagne Diamonds,” Matte Revolution lipstick in “Pillow Talk,” Eyes to Mesmerise in “Star Gold” and Superstar Lips in “Sexy Lips.” The eight travel-size makeup and skin-care products are musts as well.
Your 10 fingers and 10 toes are set with Ciaté London’s 22 mini paint pots and one full-size bottle, plus an exclusive nail file. Those 23 colors include the magic number of 10 new exclusive shades.
Interior designer and artist Vincent Darré made a whimsical re-creation of 30 Avenue Montaigne for Dior’s 2019 advent calendar. With 24 luxurious items behind the tiny doors, it’s a dream come true for any Dior fan.
Twenty-five tiny treasures can be found in this limited-edition set, including metal pendants ideal for decorating your tree, plus the brand’s covetable candles, eau de toilette, eau de parfum and more.
DR. BARBARA STURM
Inspired by Dr. Sturm’s mother’s yearly advent calendar, this limited-edition, 24-product box has two full-size products and 22 deluxe-size products. Your face and wallet will thank you, since it’s a $1,504 value available for a third of the price.
This has fewer products than the usual advent calendar but more to go around, with full-size Fresh fan favorites for the face such as the Soy Face Cleanser and Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy.
Jo Malone’s much-anticipated advent calendar is full of scented miniatures — 24, to be exact — of everything for the body and more. Colognes, hand wash, candles and shower oils come in some of their most famous fragrances, including basil and neroli and oud and bergamot.
Kiehl’s teamed up with artist Janine Rewell on this 24-piece box of customer faves. Everything from the brand’s Lip Balm #1 to Creme de Corps, this set is ideal for any man or woman in your life with a love of beauty products.
If you’re looking for a decorative calendar that can also keep your skin from cracking all winter, then this is the one to try. L’Occitane has filled theirs with best sellers such as their shea butter lip balm, lavender hand cream and almond shower oil. Thirst-quenching indeed.
Bring luxury back into the bath with this box of fragrant offerings. Shower gels in Jasmine & Sun Rose, Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel, Rosa Absolute and Vetiver & Grapefruit are just the beginning to your discovery of Molton Brown’s signature products.
This travel-friendly set is key for holiday globe-trotting. It’s got everything you need from head to toe, including favorites Moroccanoil Treatment for hair and their Dry Body Oil.
Space NK’s exclusive beauty calendar includes top brands’ popular products. Oribe’s Gold Lust hair oil, Eve Lom’s original cleanser and Malin+Goetz’s eucalyptus deodorant are just a few, and the $20 Space NK Gift Card will come in handy once you want to replenish your favorite finds come January.
