2015 Beauty Advent Calendar Roundup!

Beauty Advent Calendars 2015

Look I know it’s early and we shouldn’t be saying the C word until after Halloween but the unfortunate reality is the beauty world started launching festive gifts at least a month ago and there are advent calendars-a-plenty! I don’t know what it is about a beauty advent calendar but they just make me a bit giddy! I feel the same excitement as I did about the chocolate ones as a kid – actually that’s a lie, I still feel the same about the chocolate ones as well. There’s just something lovely about not knowing what you’re going to get and having a little surprise every day for the month of December. Here are some of my favourites of the advent releases this year, with picks for all budgets…

Benefit Party PoppersBenefit Party Poppers -The Benefit calendars have caused pandemonium over the last few years having sold out in hours and caused general mania. This years offering is just a 12 day calendar making it cheaper than previous years but its probably as pricey per product. I do like Benefit minis though I find I have a lot I use in various makeup bags.

Launches: Online now, In store 31 October

No7 Advent CalendarNo7 25 Days of Beauty Wonders – Well I bought this one last year and it was every bit as good as I thought it would be. I got a lovely mix of skincare, body care and makeup. The dinky nail polishes are so handy and I’ve been loving the toiletries for travelling. I’d highly recommend this one if you’re a No7 fan. This year’s offering looks just as good as last years.

Launches: 28 October

makeup revolution AdventMakeup Revolution Advent Calendar - Well I can’t have a post with one of my favourite brands Makeup Revolution. They have also launched an Advent Calendar for Christmas in Superdrug. The calendar contains 25 full size products. It’s a bit more pricey than I thought it would be but I might buy it when I’m doing my Christmas shopping!

loccitane advent calendarL’Occitane Advent Calendar 2015 – I just love the look of this one, it’s just super chic and parisienne, you’d expect nothing less from lovely L’Occitane. This contains a  selection of their face and bodycare and a few Christmas treats thrown in for good measure. British Beauty Blogger has a link on her page to order this from the UK site and you could parcel motel it to Ireland if you can’t live without it. I can’t get a date for the Irish launch yet but I’d assume the start of November.
Cost: £39/€52

body shop adventThe Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar 2015 – The Body Shop are releasing two calendars this year. One is slightly more glam and priced a bit higher than the other (£80). The £60 version is already on sale on their website and contains a selection of Body Shop minis including bodycare, skincare and a bit of makeup. No word on when this lands in Ireland but you can order from the UK site and parcel motel to here if you’re keen!
Cost: £60/€80

Lookfantastic adventLook Fantastic The Beauty Secret – The contents of this calendar haven’t been released yet but I just know in my bones that it’s going to be a good one! I was delighted with the Look Fantastic box I ordered here and they work with some great brands. I like the fact that I can’t find any spoilers, if I do treat myself to this one I won’t be peeking before December. The only downside is it’s a little spendy because of the poor exchange rate at the moment:-(
Cost: £70/€96
Contents: Top Secret!
Launches: 1 November here

charlotte tilbury adventCharlotte Tilbury Book of Makeup Magic – I have many Charlotte Tilbury products on my wishlist so this little countdown would be a dream. It’s a 12 day countdown but contains a mix of full size and travel size products. Apparently it will contain her new Magic night cream that hasn’t launched yet. This will be available in Brown Thomas.
Cost:£150 (€200 I assume)
Contents: Still Secret!

Advent Jo MaloneJo Malone – Well a girl can dream I suppose! This calendar just screams luxury, if I did have it I’d have to have a special unveiling song for each day – ta dah! This contains a mix of colognes and body creams in some gorgeous Jo Malone scents.
Contents: Spoiler Here!
Launches: November


There are soo many calendars this year I couldn’t possibly cover them all, there are also offerings from You Beauty, Selfridges super glam offering, Lush’s dinky 12 days of Christmas and also rumour has it Marks and Spencer will have one at a reduced price with purchase. The only problem is now I want them all!!!!!!!! Which ones do you like? Let me know if I’ve missed any cool ones!

    I want the Charlotte Tilbury one so bad but there’s not a HOPE unless I win the lotto! So pretty! The Jo Malone too, divine! Essence are releasing one too, not sure about Ireland but definitely in the UK.

      Ooh hadn’t heard about an Essence one now I would be interested in that, I’d saya it’d be good value!
