5 OF THE BEST BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS

Blogger Jessica Harris's top 5 beauty advent calendars



Here it is, my first Christmas blog post! I’m so excited. Last year I feel like I missed Christmas entirely. We’d just bought our house after 6 months of waiting and we moved in a couple of days before Christmas Eve. I was full of cold, stressed and completely had to give in to the fact that there wasn’t enough time or head space to blog. So this year, expect to see a lot of Christmas content and I can’t wait! And where better to start than with the best beauty advent calendars?

To give you a bit of background, I’m one of those annoying people who loves the festive season. I start talking about where we’re spending it in September, I’m one of the first to watch the John Lewis ad and will be counting down the days until it’s socially acceptable to buy a tree. So the fact that I can buy something that will count down the days with me is the best thing since the Cocoa Cola ad.

Over the last few years beauty advent calendars have become one of the biggest festive trends in the industry. While we all patiently wait for our stockings to be filled, opening a little present every day builds the momentum and makes those dark days all the more fun. With so many available for almost every brand going, I admit that some beauty advent calendars can push the limits of what we might spend on a calendar. As the price tags climb into the hundreds (I’m lookin at you Harrods), I wanted to bring you 5 of my affordable favourites that I think will bring you the most festive joy!

HELLO DECEMBER ADVENT CALENDAR, £65 DECLEOR


Decleor has quickly become one of my favourite brands when it comes to spa treatments. Since I had a facial with them, I’ve been hooked on their products to try and imitate that relaxed feeling at home. Toff actually bought this one for me (probably in an attempt to de-stress me!) and I absolutely love it. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to the brand and try so much of the range without committing to full size. It includes

LOVE OPI XOXO, £44.95 OPI


With Christmas drinks, work do’s, the odd family meal here and there, I don’t feel completely put together unless my nails are done. There’s something glossy and chic about a deep nail in the winter and I rarely stray from dark reds and purples or nudes but with som many colours on offer, it’s impossible not to try them all.

KIKKI-K ERASER ADVENT CALENDAR


OK, I know this isn’t a beauty advent calendar but I couldn’t resist putting it in because it’s charming, fun and different to any other I’ve seen. With 25 little house-shaped boxes, each contains a funny little stationary eraser and a motivational prompt card. Whenever Christmas rolls around, I’m always drawn to the Scandi way to the festive season. From the cozy interiors to the simplicity of it all, there’s something wholesome about their take on it all. So, seeing these sweet little houses on my kitchen counter makes me very excited to open them throughout December.
