Beauty Advent Calendars 2013Tuesday, October 22, 2013
Every year there seems to be a new Beauty Calendar released, and this year there are two! They are a great alternative to chocolate advent calendars, I mean who wouldn’t like opening a door to a little beauty treat every day? Here is a run down of what is available this year, but be quick as they always sell out quickly!
Starting with the cheapest one available this year, we have Boots’ first ever beauty advent calendar. This is definitely one of the more affordable calendars and so I can imagine this will sell out very quickly. Inside you will find products worth more than £65, featuring many different brands, including their own, such as Soap & Glory, Nails Inc, Paco Rabanne, Juicy Couture, Rimmel, Mavala, Umberto Giannini and Many More.
Ciate Mini Advent Calendar // £42
The second cheapest is by Ciate, where you will open the door to a mini nail polish each day! Included are 17 of the best selling shades, 4 mini caviar blends and 3 exclusive glitters that you cannot buy elsewhere. This is always a sell out, so if you would like this I would buy it now!
Benefit Advent Calendar – Countdown to Love // £50
Another newbie this year is the Benefit Advent Calendar which comes in a show-stopping pop art box. You will find many of their bestsellers, including high beam, coralista and Porefessional, along with a necklace, bracelet and barrette. Stocks are limited so be ready on the 2nd :)
Available: 2nd November
You Beauty Advent Calendar // £59.95
There has not been any information released for this years You Beauty Advent Calendar, however if last year is anything to go by then this will be a good contender. The total content value last year was £210, so this is a great bargain. A little tip however, last year this went down to £29.95 after December, so I think I may hold out for this one!
Selfridges Advent Calendar // £84
Lastly, the most expensive of them all is the Selfridges advent calendar. If you fancy spoiling yourself then this is the one for you. At a whopping £84 you receive many high-end luxurious products, ranging from skin care to make up and fragrance. It includes luxury brands such as Viktor & Rolf, Yves Saint Laurent, Kiehl's and Giorgio Armani to Lancôme and Maison Martin Margiela. Reviews have been varied as it would appear some products are samples that you could pick up from counters for free, so I think I may give this one a miss.
Available: Now (Although currently out of stock!)
Yankee Advent Calendar // £21.99
Alternatively, if you are not after a beauty advent calendar then Yankee Candle have introduced a lovely candle advent calendar. Every day you will open the door to a tealight in one of their 6 seasonal scents with an extra treat on the 24th!
Contents: Snow In Love, Balsam & Cedar, Merry Marshmallow, Red Apple Wreath, Snowflake Cookie, Sparkling Cinnamon
I definitely want to try and get my hands on one this year, possibly the Boots or Benefit calendar! Which are you hoping to buy?
