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.
♡ BEST BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS 2023 ♡
This list updates as new calendars come on sale.
Benefit All I Want Beauty Advent Calendar 2023
This year Benefit’s calendar has 24 products and it’s really impressive. You’ll find all the best-selling products like the Hoola bronzer, Porefessional (it really does smooth your pores like no other), Roller Lash mascara and not to forget all those great brow products. For true makeup lovers – this calendar is for you!
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!

The Body Shop
Advent of Change – Big Advent of Change & The Ultimate Advent of Change
The Body Shop tends to offer multiple calendars and so is the case this year as well. The Advent of Change calendar is 79€, Big Advent of Change 109€ and The Ultimate Advent of Change 149€. All of the calendars contain great value with trusted lovely TBS products for bath, body & hair (no makeup products). The two bigger calendars have 25 boxes, whereas the cheapest one 24.

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 Nordic Beauty Secrets Advent Calendar 2023
Lumene’s calendars tend to look like beautiful artwork. Not to forget the contents that your skin loves (and needs, in the winter). This year’s calendar offers products from all the different product lines, including the most loved Nordic C and Nordic Hydra. 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!

♡ LUXURY BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS ♡
Charlotte Tillbury ‘Charlotte’s Lucky Chest of Beauty secrets’ Beauty Advent Calendar 2023
This celebrity makeup artist’s calendar tempts me every year and I’m on the waitlist. This wonderful beauty chest contains 12 products, which gives a great chance to try some of the best-selling products like the Hollywood Beauty Light Wand highlighter. But scrolling through the products, I would honestly be happy to try any of those gorgeous products.
Cult beauty Advent Calendar 2023
Cult beauty’s calendar, as the name suggests, contains some very nice cult classic products. It’s a great pick for someone who wants a big range of makeup, skincare and hair products from bigger, known brands. It contains 39 products, 20 of them full sized! You’ll get your money’s worth at least with Olaplex nro 3 hair perfector (travel size), a Jo Loves ‘Roasted Chestnuts’ small candle, Sunday Riley’s Sunday Genes full sized product (£70) and a really pretty Roen eyeshadow palette (£43).
♡ ORGANIC BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS ♡
Neal’s Yard’s Remedies Beauty Advent Calendar 2023
NYR offers you skincare pampering with their dreamy blue calendar. It contains only 12 products, but I’ll let it slide, since I love their products. 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
♡ Affordable beauty advent calendars ♡
Makeup Revolution ’25 days of glam’ Beauty Advent Calendar 2023
When it comes to eyeshadows, lipsticks and pencils, you can get good ones on a budget. This pink calendar puts a smile on my face with the happy (yet wearable!) colors and sparkly textures. A good choice for a makeup lover. 55,95€ worth over £96
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.
