A: With the weather taking a sudden Autumnal turn, we are all super excited about cosy knitwear, lovely candles, hot chocolates with marshmallows and warm nights in front of the fire, so to help you even more to get into the spirit I thought you’d like to see a few favourites of mine from the amazing advent calendars on offer this year.
Benefit Cosmetics Candy-Coated Countdown – £60
This is a very strong contender, adored by beauty bloggers everywhere. I have only ever tried a few Benefit products so I would love to have this. It’s packed with 24 mini-versions of their Bestsellers, from Porefessional to ChaChatint and High Beam to They’re Real. Theyre also some super cute accessories tucked away behind the doors too. Unfortunately, I think this may be a little out of my budget but a girl can always dream. Available at www.benefitcosmetics.co.uk from October 16th.
Yankee Candle – £21.99
Everyone loves a Yankee Candle and with their Advent Calendar, you get a new tea light candle each day in one of six seasonal scents; including Icicles, Snowflake Cookie and Christmas Garland. Available now on the website, just click here.
Liberty – £149
Okay, I know this is way beyond most peoples budges – myself included (sigh!) but I couldn’t not include it. The inside is adorned with the a beautiful Liberty print and each draw includes a high-end beauty product, from companies such as Nars, Dermalogica, Weleda and Laura Mercier. If you’re lucky enough to buy this, it’s available on the Liberty website, and instore from November.
Selfridges Enchanted Spells – £85
At a slightly (!) more reasonable price is the calendar from Selfridges. This is packed with high-end products and is totally worth the month. Products from Kiehl’s, Urban Decay, Lancome and Yves Saint Laurent. The perfect way to spend December would be opening one of these little doors of goodness every morning. Available now on their website – just click here!
YOU Beauty Advent Calendar – £49.95
I’ve saved this one till last because I’m pretty sure it’s my favourite (although I won’t be buying it, it’s still out of my price range no matter how beautiful it is). You Beauty claim this is worth £240 – and I believe them. Brands such as Essie, Aromatherapy Associates, Liz Earle and Sisley have been included – and that’s just a few! Click here to see the full run down of what’s included. I really like that they have listed all of the products for you to see before you buy; if you are paying this much for an Advent Calendar it’s nice to know that it’s worth the money – and this certainly is. It’s available now, but I have a feeling it will sell out quickly!
