I'm excited to bring you my first Christmas post of the season today. I know, I know, it's only October and we've not even celebrated Halloween yet, but this one just can't wait until December.

With Advent a mere five and a half weeks away, the shops are already flooding with beauty Advent calendars, and this year there are more to choose from than ever before. On my quest to find myself the perfect beauty calendar to enjoy this Advent, I found more than 80 beauty calendars to choose from! Last year, I found 35. It took some time to hunt them all down, so I thought I'd do a round-up post featuring them all to save you guys the time and effort, y'know, 'cause I'm nice like that.

Compiled in this post are 79 beauty calendars, 3 candle calendars, and 1 jewellery calendar, ranging in price from an indulgent £280, to a purse-friendly £5, with something for every taste and budget. Let's start with the most expensive first.

If you've made it this far- thanks for sticking with me! I hope you've found this round up post helpful. I will update the post with any new calendars I find, so keep checking back if there's a calendar you're looking for

Will you be treating yourself or a loved one to a beauty, jewellery or candle Advent calendar this Christmas?



  1. I always love the look of the nail varnish ones but I already have a big enough collection that I don't wear enough thanks to work. They aren't a fan of nail varnish - though they seem to have relaxed the complete ban - and most of my collection are dark colours.

  2. OH MY GOD! This post is amazing and must have taken you AGES to do! I'll take one of each! :p I keep eyeing the ASOS one and it's 30% off atm, but still not sure I can justify it. The Jo Malone one works out to be $453 Australian, wowza!
