The Best Beauty Advent Calendars for Adults



To quote a golden oldie, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…. Shopping Centres are decorated, Fruit Mince Pies and Plum Puddings are in stores, (Mangoes and Cherries are in season!), Santa and his elves are out and about, and Christmas lights are starting to go up on houses – festivity is everywhere. It’s also the time of year we start looking for Advent Calendars for the children, but this year, don’t let them have all the fun – not when there are a multitude of wonderful Advent Calendars created especially for adults, with full-sized and mini beauty treats inside. In addition to receiving a gorgeous surprise every day, Advent Calendars are a wonderful way to sample some beauty treats you may not have tried before – win-win. Our picks of the best Advent Calendars for adults are below – read on to find out what they are.

The Body Shop Deluxe Advent Calendar



You can look & feel good and do some good when you buy The Body Shop Deluxe Advent Calendar for Christmas. Based on the beauty of nature, the Advent Calendar contains 25 days of luxurious delights, including a full size body butter, makeup essentials, mini treats and more. As a bonus, when you’ve opened all 25 treats, the box transforms into a picture puzzle that reveals more beautiful beasts from an enchanted forest. And the bit about doing some good – this Christmas, every purchase with The Body Shop will help protect and re-wild the Wye Valley, an ancient woodland in England and the Caucasus Wildlife Refuge, home to one of Armenia’s most threatened species, the Caucasus Leopard. Deluxe Advent Calendar RRP $150.00, valued at $233.00. Also available in a Beauty Advent Calendar (RRP $100, valued at $165.00), and Ultimate Advent Calendar (more about this one in an upcoming story on Value Added Christmas – RRP $250.00, valued at $466.00) version. These are limited editions, so get in quickly, before they sell out.

Mavala Switzerland Advent Calendar



The 12 day Mavala Switzerland Advent Calendar is designed as a clever way to get everything you need for a DIY at home manicure (or pedicure). Housed in pull out drawers, the Advent Calendar contains four nail care products, six best selling Mini Nail Colours, tweezers and a hand cream. The decorative gift box is packaged in a gorgeous vanity case topped with a pink satin bow. The best part is, as the products are housed in the pull out drawers, you can store them away afterwards, and never lose anything. I know what I’ll be doing with my down time in January – giving myself a mani/pedi – I think I’ll start with Sunset Orange!! Advent Calendar RRP $59.95.
