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.

Beauty advent calendars are the ultimate Christmas gift to yourself. Who doesn’t like to explore new products and brands – or possibly fill their makeup bag with things they already know they’re gonna love and use?


Here are this year’s best beauty calendars, including makeup, skincare, hair and body products. And once again, I’ve chosen calendars from different price points.


*This list will updated as new calendars come on sale!*

For most calendars, you’ll find the the full contents on the site, so I recommend checking that out. Then you know what you’re paying for and won’t be disappointed. And then again, you won’t remember it in December and will be happily surprised!

The Body Shop Advent Calendars 2022 

The Body Shop offers three calendars to choose from. These always go fast, maybe because they’re quite affordable, yet they have good value.

If you’re into creamy shower gels, fruity body creams, face masks and other deliciously scented beauty products, these calendars are here for you. I’m personally most drawn to the red (Box of wonders) calendar and have my eye on products like Coffee Face Mask, Camomile Cleansing Butter and Almond Milk Shower Cream.

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.

2D Advent Calendar 76,50€ (worth 142,90€)
3D Advent Calendar 109,50€ (worth 175,90€)
Premium Advent Calendar 164,50€ (worth 274,90€)

If you want a variety of brands and products, Lookfantastic is a good choice. I’ve had it 3 times and always loved it. I feel like this year the focus is on skincare and high-end brands like Elemis, Drunk Elephant and Zelens (or maybe those are just the products that caught my eye looking at the contents). If you’re into lux creams and love to try new stuff (hello face cleansing brush!), check out the lookfantastic calendar.

What are the best beauty advent calendars in 2021? Here is a list of the best ones!

It’s never too soon to talk about Christmas. Especially when it comes to beauty advent calendars. Listing the very best is a task I take very seriously (and as a Christmas person I enjoy it really much). On this post you’ll find the most interesting calendars from different price points. So whether it’s affordable or luxury you’re after, I got you covered.

Usually these beauty calendars sell out quickly, so you need to be early to get one.


Most stores come out with their calendars in October, so I’ll update this list as new calendars come on sale.

Most sites list the contents of the calendar, so I recommend checking them out. That way you can take a peek and know what you’re getting (forgetting it is a part of it so you will anyway be surprised in December).


Rituals Advent Calendars 2021 (59,90€ & 89,90€)

Rituals’ calendars are always at the top of my list. I’ve had their calendar two times now and I always recommend them to my friends as well as a “safe bet”. The calendars themselves are gold this year, but similar style than before. (I’m only a little sad that my calendar from last year is red and not this gold one, heh).

The contents are also great, if you love Rituals products. You know, lovely scents, dreamy shower creams, body oils and lotions and much more. They add that bit of luxury in your every day products.

I think both the contents are great – though you get a bit more variety in the deluxe version. And obviously – the deluxe version is a whole Christmas village with added lights and everything. And you can reuse it (what I’m doing this year).

The Ritual of Advent Deluxe 89,90€ (


Lookfantastic Advent Calendar $115 (worth £500)

Lookfantastic’s Advent Calendar is a classic, that always manages to surprise positively. I’ve had it three times and I’ve always been pleased with it. This year I’m loving the purple red style of it – and of course – the trusted selection of beauty products for body, hair and skin (including makeup). I’m happy to see brands like NARS, Illamasqua, EGF, Rituals and REN in the contents!
