THE BEST BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS FOR CHRISTMAS 2022

The countdown to the big day is on and there is no better way to mark the lead-up to the most wonderful time of the year than with a daily makeup, fragrance, skin or haircare treat.

For some years now, the humble chocolate advent calendar has been making way for beauty versions bursting with skincare, haircare, perfume and makeup. Sitting behind the festive windows are a variety of generously portioned samples or travel-size items, often with a few surprise full-size products hidden inside. Aside from opening a new treat every single day, beauty advent calendars are also a great way to try new products to help you find new favourites and rediscover old classics.

From sell-out sensations like our very own Brown Thomas Advent Calendar to Jo Malone London’s treasure chest of treats and MAC Cosmetics’ limited edition offering, here are the best beauty advent calendars to shop for Christmas 2022, whether you're treating yourself (in which case, well deserved) or a loved one.

The ever-growing demand for beauty advent calendars means that they’ll sell out fast, so don’t wait. Hit ‘Add To Cart’ on your favourite today!
