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 The Advent Calendar, €215, at Space NK Grafton Street

Worth over €600, the Space NK Beauty Anthology Advent Calendar is split into four chapters – Pre-Party, Night Out, Morning After and Every Day with full size and miniature products to see you through party season from all your favourite brands, including Fresh, Slip, Olaplex, Charlotte Tilbury, IGK, Oribe, Drunk Elephant, Sunday Riley, Nars and more. 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. Santa, if you are listening, I have been extraordinarily good this year…

 

M&S Advent Calendar, €40 when you spend €30 on clothing, home or beauty

In-store at Marks & Spence and online from October 31st, the M&S Advent Calendar is worth €370, but can be yours for just €40 when you spend €30 on clothing, home or beauty. There are 25 full size and miniature products, including Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, Emma Hardie Purifying Pink Clay Detox Mask, This Works Sleep Together Calming Spray, STILA Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick and the incredible Aveda Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair.

The No7 Beauty Advent Calendar, €50

On sale Thursday 24 October, the No7 Beauty Advent Calendar already has a whopping waitlist of 226,834. Last year, the No7 Advent Calendar sold out in just 3 days, so you have to be quick when it comes to this one. Worth €235, the 25 door calendar includes make-up and tools, plus all your No7 skincare favourites, including a mini No7 Laboratories Line Correcting Booster Serum and the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Day Cream, Night Cream and Serum.

The beautifully packaged Nuxe Advent Calendar includes 24 iconic Nuxe heroes, including Huile Prodiguese and Crème Fraîche de Beauté as well as some brand new members of the Nuxe family, like Insta Masque and IMAGE favourite Huile Prodigieuse Florale.

L’Occitane Luxury Advent Calendar, €99

L’Occitane’s Luxury Advent Calendar is the most indulgent set of pampering products you’ve ever seen, including their cult favourite Immortelle Reset Serum, delicious Almond Shower Oil and the beautiful Herbae par L’Occitane fragrance. Filled with 24 little luxuries, each drawer uncovers a tip to help nurture nature.
