The most luxurious Advent calendars for beauty lovers

Are you there, Santa? It’s me, Holly…


Countdown to Christmas with a daily treat from these most opulent beauty brands…

Space NK, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Charlotte Tilbury Glittering Galaxy of Make-up Magic Beauty Advent Calendar, €185

Last month,  Charlotte Tilbury visited Dublin and showcased her festive beauty offerings to a crowd of enraptured Irish beauty editors. “As my son says, this is what you buy someone when you love them thiiiiis much,”  Charlotte Tilbury told us with her arms outstretched, and you can’t argue with that – the Glittering Galaxy of Make-up Magic Beauty Advent Calendar is worth €250 and includes 12 full size and travel size Charlotte Tilbury make-up and skincare icons.

Jo Malone London Advent Calendar, €360

Behind 24 beautiful doors lies a scented surprise from Jo Malone London, from home scents to candles to fragrances to bath and body delights. The Jo Malone Advent Calendar is available now, but it sells out notoriously fast so don’t think about it for too long…

Diptyque Advent Calendar, €350

The Diptyque Advent Calendar includes thirteen 35g candles (including Verbena and Roses), a 70g Pine Protector candle, metal pendants, the new Rose Water scent patch, skincare products and eau de parfum and eau de toilette.

On sale Thursday 24 October, the No7 Beauty Advent Calendar already has a whopping waitlist of 226,834.
