Here are the best beauty advent calendars of 2023! Listing them has become a tradition that not-so-secretly starts my Christmas season every year. I always look forward to searching the most interesting, lovely and fun beauty calendars from different categories. Though I have to admit – the best ones are hard to beat and usually stay great year after year (Rituals I’m looking at you).

Whether it’s affordable or luxury you’re after, I got you, so let’s see what goodies we got!

And yes I know I know, it’s September when I’m posting this – but beauty calendars tend to go fast.
And on the other hand, as I mentioned, I kind of start my season early. If you like that vibe, come follow me on my Christmas Instagram account.


This list updates as new calendars come on sale.

KICKS Beauty Advent Calendar The Expert 2023

Last year I had this calendar and I loved it. There’s a really nice selection of different items from makeup to skincare to hair. You’ll find lots of products from KICKS’ own line Beautyact – which is a good thing, because having tried the brand’s makeup, it’s great. Price is also fair!

Rituals Premium, Deluxe & Classic Advent Calendars 2023

Rituals has three calendars. The biggest difference is that two of those calendars are in a village form, where you get led lights as well. I’ve had that version once, and it looks super cute with the lighted houses. But I have to say, the Classic calendar also looks super cute! When it comes to contents, all of them contain lovely pampering products for body, face and hair. Both the Classic and Premium contain one of my favorite serums for the face: namaste anti-ageing serum.

Lumene’s calendars tend to look like beautiful artwork. Not to forget the contents that your skin loves (and needs, in the winter).

Some makeup there too – good choice if you want a bit of everything and love trying new products.

Lookfantastic Advent Calendar 2023

This year Lookfantastic’s calendar is quite fantastic. There are some products you tend to see every year, but this year offers more surprises. I like seeing MAC, Medik 8, Rituals and NARS represented, to name a few brands. 27 products, 12 of them full-sized. A nice deal!

This calendar is a great chance to try out a natural brand – and get the most basic skincare stuff on the shelf (a hydrating serum, a nourishing face cream, an eye cream and an oil – plus more). £95, worth over £180

essence Advent Calendars Merry Everything & Happy Always & X-Mas Mail DIY

As usual, essence has two calendars. One ready to go and other DIY one, where you wrap the presents yourself. Merry Everything & Happy Always contains a great brow gel and nail polishes. There’s also eyeliner stencils, which sounds interesting! The DIY calendar is also tempting, since it contains two mascaras (the best product you can get from essence, in my opinion), lots of nail polishes and other fun stuff.

I’m not-so-secretly excited, that every year I get to start my Christmas dreaming early, listing the best beauty advent calendars. It’s a task I take seriously and look forward to every Fall.

And I know – some of you are reading this and checking the date. It’s September, why on earth am I talking about Christmas? But as you may know, most beauty advent calendars are sold out on october – though luckily some are still available for longer. In my experience: when you find one you like, you should be fast.

Rituals Advent Calendars 2022

Rituals have become my new beauty advent calendar favorite, because of great quality products that I know are going to use. Lovely foaming shower gels, body creams that actually do the job and some nicely scented candles. You know, the every day luxury one longs for.

This year Rituals also offers three calendars – 2D, 3D and a premium one. The 3D and premium calendars come with christmas lights (important detail as these act as your Christmas decorations). When it comes to contents, the 2D and 3D calendars have quite many similar products. You get most full-sized products in the premium calendar.
