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!

The Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2020




Merry Christmas! There, I said it. I can’t be the only one who’s ready to turn the wheels towards Christmas and just get excited about, well, something else than 2020. (You do know this year is cancelled right?) Even if sad things happen and life seems scary at times, Christmas always comes. I will not let anything ruin my Christmas spirit!

And what better way to get into the Christmas spirit than taking a look at this year’s beauty advent calendars? As you know, you have to be early, if you want to get one. These calendars are crazy popular, and I don’t wonder why. They are probably the most exciting launch every year – it’s just the perfect Christmas gift to yourself.


In this post I have listed the best beauty advent calendars. Most stores come out with their calendars in October, so I’ll update this list as new calendars come on sale.

Most calendars have the items listed on their site, so if you want to take a peek and see what you’re buying, just click to the site. Actually, I recommend doing that. When you take a peek now and buy your calendar, you don’t remember the contents anyway. Then when December comes it will be a nice surprise opening the boxes!


*Lookfantastic Advent Calendar $110 ( Shop in *UK & *FI/EU )

Lookfantastic is promising an even better calendar than before, but they really don’t need to do that. Their calendar is at the top of my list each year. It’s just one of those safe bets! I’ve had this calendar for many years now and I always find new amazing products from it. Fun fact: this has been sold out five years in a row.

*Feelunique Advent Calendar  £89
Feelunique’s calendar launches 5.10 and is another great option with a good variety of beauty products. I spotted some pretty amazing products there!

Rituals Advent Calendar Deluxe 89,90€
This must be the most beautiful calendar on this list. I mean.. it’s a a christmas town! With amazing bath and body products. I’m totally into calendars that also act as your Christmas decorations. I love Rituals’ products -they bring such luxury to the bathroom.

Rituals Advent Calendar Exclusive 59,90€
The more affordable version of Rituals’ calendar is still very pretty and a great choice! In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with either one of these. By the way, if you haven’t tried a shower foam from Rituals, you haven’t lived.

Cult Beauty Advent Calendar £199
Available 12.10. Cult beauty’s calendar this year looks amazing. Appropriately, there are some great cult classic products there! Another nice detail is that 15€ is donated towards a charity for every calendar sold.

Lumene 24 Nordic Surprises Advent Calendar 89,90€
This calendar packed with Finnish goodies is available soon. In my experience Lumene’s skincare products are beautiful and gentle on the skin. I also like their mascaras and there’s one in the calendar as well!

L’Occitane Classic Calendar Holiday $105

If you like French skincare and body products, you’ll probably enjoy L’Occitane’s calendar!


*The Body Shop Advent Calendars 50-130£
Last year TBS came out with multiple calendars and that’s the deal this year as well. I love it, as you can choose the suitable calendar for your budjet! The calendars are pretty and come with delicious beauty products.

LUSH Advent Calendar £185
LUSH Advent Calendar is packed with bath bombs and cute body products. Vegan. Available for pre-order!


You can totally get a beauty Advent Calendar on a budget. At least essence, Catrice and Makeup Revolution has calendars. The DIY means that you get to wrap your products in little boxes yourself – I did that last year for my sister’s Catrice calendar. It was quick and pretty fun!

*essence Ho Ho Home for x-mas Calendar 24,95€
I think both of these essence calendars are a great choice for essence lovers. The Ho Ho one is a cuter calendar though.
*essence DIY Advent Calendar 19,95€

*Catrice Advent Calendar DIY 34,95€
Nice selection of makeup products, including eyeshadow palettes, beuatiful nail polishes and other goodies.
*Revolution The Advent Calendar 59,99€
Okay, this is more pricey, but the contents also look nice. If you love makeup and like the brand, it’s a steal!

Finally, a quick word about chocolate calendars. We’ve often bought ours from amazon. Check out their selection, including *this one from Lindt!
