It’s coming to that time of year again when I start to think about my beauty Advent Calendar. I love this time of year, the excitement of getting something new in the lead up to Christmas. The wonderful thing about Advent Calendars is that you get something lovely every day for a whole month to open with your coffee first thing in the morning. What a treat!
There are now so many to choose from, it can get confusing and sometimes a little overwhelming, so I thought I would put together a little list of my favourites for this year to give you an idea of some of the nicer beauty and make up advent calendars to suit a variety of tastes and budgets.
I don’t want to spoil your surprises, so I’m not going to list everything that is in each one, but will outline each Calendar with a mark out of 5. This is based on product sizes, usefulness, quality, general gorgeousness!

Reasonably priced at £75 with £125 worth of products inside.
There are 3 full sized products including Hair Care, Moisturising and Cleansing products, a lipstick and Eyeshadow set and Mascara. It has great reviews so far, packaging is a little dull but that shouldn’t deter you.
