Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars 2015 *Updated*

The words Beauty Advent Calendar have been in my inbox and timeline for weeks and we are only in September! Ive been lucky enough to see a few Calendars up close and I thought I would share with you the ones I have had some information about!

Ive put the advent calendars into the following groups - Luxury, mid-price and affordable to show them to you, plus one for Teens because some calendars are too cute to miss. Those in the luxury section cost more than £100, those mid-priced are between £50 and £99 and affordable is anything below £50 and then we have Bargains which is below £35 - although all of these prices could change!


Lancome - It is already out of stock, but this Lancome Advent Calendar is a thing of beauty. It contains 24 amazing products such as Advanced Génifique Serum 50ml, Multi-Use Face Brush and Hypnôse Classic Mascara Full Size. Priced at £85 in Debenhams.

Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars 2015

FeelUnique - 12 days of beauty surprises from skincare, haircare to make-up. Behind each door one of your favourite brands is waiting to be discovered, from NUXE and Philip Kingsley to Grown Alchemist and this works, the beauty elves have put together a treasure trove of full-size and travel-size luxuries to be enjoyed. It costs just £30.

Dr Hauschka -  Behind the windows is a carefully selected collection of Dr. Hauschka Body and Skin Care products, which makes the perfect treat to experience well-being and calmness during the busy festive season. The Advent Calendar contains 23 trial sizes and one special full size surprise for Christmas Eve. This is an online exclusive. 

Kérastase launch first ever Christmas Advent Calendar £79. Housed within the golden gift set are 25 days' worth of Kérastase hair saviours. Behind each door you will discover a luxurious hair care treat; ranging from a selection of mini, travel size and full size products!

Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars 2015

Starting in the luxury section we have:

Jo Malone £260
I am a huge Jo Malone fan and this advent calendar is one I am sure every fan want to have, I mean look at it!  An amazing Georgian Townhouse design which contains both mini perfumes and scented body creams for 24 days - what utter bliss!  Again I haven't found a release date but it is rumoured to be available at Harrods from October and nationwide from November.

Charlotte Tilbury £150

Now I do not own a single item from Charlotte Tilbury, though I do have a wishlist as long as my arm of items I would like.  As Beauty Advent Calendars go, this one is really quite exciting because 'The Book of Make Up Magic' as it is called includes mainly Charlotte Tilbury best-selling hero products and there is a mix of both travel size and full sized products over 12 days. There is no release date as yet, but it will be exclusively available at, Selfridges, and Brown Thomas

Liberty £149
There is no denying that the Liberty Advent Calendar is beautiful.  Last year I went into the store more times than I care to admit to simply look at it and admire it, knowing full well that it was right out of my price range.  However it may cost a lot of money at £149 but it does have some amazing brands included which, this year are rumoured to include Decleor, Kiehl's and the amazing Trish McEvoy!  If I have persuaded you that you need it, then it is available at Liberty from 29th October!


Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars 2015

Selfridges £95
Last year this was the calendar I wanted to buy but in the end didn't and I still regret it a little bit because the contents were fab.  This year the Selfridges Advent Calendar, called Cosmic Delights, is rumoured to include delights from brands such as Kiehl's, Lancome, YSL, and Victor and Rolf. Available exclusively at Selfridges, and from Mid-October

LookFantastic £70

Now if the beauty boxes are anything to go by, then this is one to watch. Said to include many luxurious surprises throughout the month of December from some of the LookFantastic Team's favourite brands.  It is released on 1st November online with LookFantastic.

The Body shop £60/£80

Interestingly, The Body Shop has catered for two different budgets with two versions of its calendar this year. There is a standard version which is priced at £60 and is said to save you more than £30 on products and the luxury version which is priced at £80 will save you a whopping £47 compared to if you brought the products individually. Naturally, the products included are from their skincare, bath & body, fragrance and makeup ranges.  These calendars will be available at The Body Shop from late October.

Clarins £60.00

Open the door to an enchanted forest, infinitely precious, and discover 24 treasures hidden behind golden leaves. Day by day, open a window and be spoiled with a special Clarins treat. A perfect opportunity to discover Clarins best-selling and iconic products. Cleanse, moisturise, illuminate. Available right now.

W7 make up is one of the brands that I really like.  For a highstreet brand the quality is fantastic and they do some amazing dupes which are well worth looking out for.  

Essence £24.99
Essence has announced the launch of its limited edition Christmas Advent Calendar for 2015 and it will contain 24 exclusive products. Each door also offers a 'quote of the day'. All of the products are limited and not available to purchase in-stores. The essence Advent Calendar will be available from Wilko stores in November.

House of Fraser £20

The House of Fraser Calendar is said to feature its own-brand 'Colour Couture' and it is said that every item within the calendar gives you something to literally build a make-up kit from scratch. I think this is really reasonably priced from what I have seen so far and it is available at House of Fraser from September.

Bomb Cosmetics £19.99

The news of the Bomb Cosmetics dropped into my inbox a few days ago and I think it is so reasonably priced.  Inside you have 24 whole days of Bomb love with this Bomb Advent Calendar and it is filled to the brim with a mix of our favourite soaps and blasters.  If you have never tried Bomb Cosmetics products before, then this would be a great introduction.

Advent Calendars for the Teens

Christmas Beauty Advent Calendars 2015

Tanya Burr Deck the Hauls 12 Days Calendar £25 - I saw this at a recent Superdrug Press Day and was quite impressed with how it is decorated.  Not for me personally but I know it will call out to those younger teens. 

Flutter by Superdrug £8 - Heavenly beauty for gorgeous girls. Create pretty perfection with the flutter collection of fashionable colours and must have accessories. A collection of mini cosmetics for eye, lip and nails, and a cute little mirror .

Kissmas by Wilko £5 - This is the cheapest Calendar I have yet to come across and it is quite cure for those little girls who dream of being a princess and it can also be a fab Secret Santa. The calendar contains a mixture of nail products, tools, wraps and stencils.

Of course it doesn't end there! If Beauty isn't your thing and candles are... then here are your choices:


A luxury candle advent calendar of dreams! It will cost £250 and for that money you get 25 mini candles! Now I have only ever had one mini Diptyique candle which I absolutely loved and would happily love more, but is £250 for 25 mini candles worth a spluge?
