The countdown to Christmas is the most exciting time of the year, imagine adding beauty advent calendars into the mix! And they’re far more advanced than the simple advent calendar you’re thinking about. Beauty companies have brought out advent calendars for years now. But they’re not particularly well known in the US and have been a bigger thing in the UK.
I’ve always wanted to have one but not surprisingly, they do sell out since they’re limited edition. This year Clarins, one of my favorite skincare brands, was kind enough to send me theirs to experience. I feel like a kid in a candy store because I love advent calendars and I love beauty. No surprise there!
Each beauty advent calendar is filled with the brands signature products. Ranging from 12 to 24 day calendars, they’re a great introduction into the brand’s product range. It makes a beautiful early gift for the beauty addict in your life – or treat yourself if you consider yourself one! From makeup to skincare and even nail polish calendars, there’s something for everyone.
What’s Inside Beauty Advent Calendars
The Clarins Advent Calendar includes 18 makeup and skincare products, ranging between full, travel and sample size. Additionally you get 3 gift tags and 3 charms to make your gifts more festive under the Christmas tree. I’ve spoken about my love for Clarins here and here but I’ve yet to try this many different products from the brand at once. My mom got me the moisture rich body lotion when I was a teenager and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. It’s an indulgent body lotion that I like treating myself with in the winter months.
A few of my other faves featured in the calendar are the Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil and Instant Eye Makeup Remover. And I’m excited to test out more of their makeup products, namely the bronzing duo and volume mascara.
Which Brands Make Them
Below I’ve rounded up all beauty advent calendars that I found are sold in the US. Every year more and more brands are catching on to the beauty advent calendar trend and I love seeing the different designs they come up with. Skincare is my favorite beauty vertical so it’s no surprise that I get a bit more excited about skincare advent calendars.
