Battle Of The Beauty Advent Calanders.


Up until a few weeks ago, an advent calendar to me was a traditional Christmas ritual in which we got to treat ourselves to chocolate each day in the run up to the big day. However, since reading many beauty blogs I have learnt about a whole new world of advent calendars - beauty! Yes, that's right an advent calendar filled with beauty treats all for you! There's some really good brands you can choose from including Benefit, Boots and Selfridges! I must also apologise if you roll your eyes when you see Christmas gifts everywhere a few days into October, but I get so excited deciding which gifts to treat others to (and maybe myself too!)

Selfridges Christmas Advent Calendar - £84.00
Whoa, this one is pretty pricey isn't it?! It certainly looks luxurious though, imagine how pretty all these mini products would look on your dressing table?! The advent calendar itself includes goodies from Lancôme, Victor & Rolf, Giorgio Armani, YSL, Kiehl's and more so it looks like you'll definitely be getting your moneys worth! This calendar is not out to purchase yet, but if you sign up your details here and you'll be the first to know more details.
I'm pleased to say this is a much more reasonable price compared to the previous calendar! Anyway, here we have Boots very own beauty advent calendar, including 24 beauty treats all for you. For £30.00 you will receive both mini and full sized treats from brands such as Rimmel, Seventeen, Nails Inc, Soap and Glory and more! If you are interested in exactly what you're getting for your moneys worth, you can find the full spoiler contents on the web - I didn't want to spoil it. The calendar is available to buy now.
This is the perfect advent calendar for any nail polish lovers! The calendar includes "seventeen of Ciate's bestselling mini paint pots, four mini Caviar blends, and three extremely special exclusive Paint Pot glitter shades you'll not find anywhere else, ever." The Ciate calendar is available exclusively to Selfridges and they are recommending you snap it up quickly if you fancy it as they sold out pretty quick last year apparently!

 Benefit's Countdown To Love Advent Calendar - £50.00
This is the one that excites me the most! I'm really getting into using Benefit products at the minute (which is bad news for my bank balance) so I'm definitely considering buying this one! The calendar will include 24 days of gorgeous treats. If you fancy this, mark the 2nd November in your diary as it will be available for this day ONLY. Exclusive, eh? You'll be able to buy it at Debenhams, Benefit Boutiques and Benefit's own website.

  1. They all look so good! I wish I had the budget for the Selfridges or Benefit one but maybe I'll give Boots a go instead :) xx

  2. I'd love the Selfridges one but I can't afford that, even though I'm sure the contents would be more than the price of the calendar...Perhaps I'll pick up the Boots one x

  3. these all look sooo nice! I wish they were all available in the US-- although it's probably a good thing they're not :) haha

  4. They all look amazing. I feel like one with a balance of beauty and chocolate would make a good compromise? I'm also loving that Benefit one! Xx

  5. I really, really, really want the Benefit one! I'm on a diet so can't have the traditional chocolate so make-up will just have to do! x

  6. I've just tried to convince my mother that the benefit calendar is something I need... she unfortunately didn't agree.
