BLOGMAS DAY 1 | Best Of Christmas Advent Calendars Under £100

It’s that time of year again – everyone is getting ready for the countdown to Christmas, whether that’s planning presents, having a chocolate advent calendar to count down the days or for makeup lovers, splurging on a beauty advent calendar!

I’ve tried Christmas beauty calendars in the past, and I think some of them are really a good deal for what you get inside, but others do seem much the same as you’d buy any time of the year. I’ve had an explore online and found what I think are the 10 best beauty calendars under £100 for 2017!

The NYX 24 Days Of Lips Advent Calendar

Price: £50

Value for Money: You get a fair amount for your money, and there’s so much variety in this calendar that you’ll find both old favourites and new! It contains 24 different lip products in different shades and formulas – not bad for £50!

Availability: Stocked at Boots, Debenhams

Overall Score: 9/10


The Benefit SF Winter Wonderland Calendar

Price: £34.50

Value for Money: The products in this calendar are worth over £70 and contain loads of favourites like the They’re Real mascara and Porefessional! They’re mainly mini products which are perfect for travelling.

Availability: Online at Benefit

Overall Score: 9/10


The ASOS Calendar

Price: £55

Value for Money: Again, this one is pretty impressive, containing brands like Zoeva, St Tropez and Smashbox! I’d be pretty happy with this one, and it’s not ridiculously expensive for the quality included either!

Availability: On

Overall Score: 8/10


The Look Fantastic Calendar

Price: £79

Value for Money: This one is AMAZING – it contains over £300 worth of products in various sizes, including some full size treats!

Availability: Online at Look Fantastic

Overall Score: 9/10


The Makeup Revolution Calendar

Price: £30 reduced from £50!

Value for Money: One of the best in this list, only £30 for 24 days – that’s less than £2 per product! This one has a wide range of products including 6 lip shades, makeup brushes and eyeshadows.

Availability: On Superdrug

Overall Score: 6/10


The Sleek A Gift A Day Advent Calendar

Price: £28 reduced from £35!

Value for Money: I love Sleek makeup, so I think this one is one of the best on the market, especially for the price! It has 25 products inside, so for £28, it’s a steal!

Availability: On

Overall Score: 10/10


The Body Shop Calendar 


Price: £45

Value for Money: I think this one is one of the best – The Body Shop are known for their amazing body products and this calendar contains 24 mini products, perfect for lovers of the brand or new buyers who want to try out The Body Shop!

Availability: Online at The Body Shop

Overall Score: 8/10


The Kiehl’s Advent Calendar

Price: £95

Value for Money: This is definitely one of the pricier ones on the list, but Kiehl’s is known for their high quality skincare products. I think under £100 for 24 minis works out pretty well!

Availability: On

Overall Score: 7/10


The Amazon Beauty Advent Calendar

Price: £35 reduced from £50!

Value for Money: I love the variety of brands included in this calendar, from Rituals to Laura Geller, there are plenty of options for beauty lovers to discover their favourite new brands!

Overall Score: 8/10


The Selfridges Calendar

Price: £40 reduced from £70!

Value for Money: This was way more affordable that I was expecting, especially as it’s from Selfridges! Again it’s a 24 day calendar so £40 is a steal for the brands included!

Availability: On Selfridges

Overall Score: 8/10

    Every year I saw I will buy myself a beauty advent calendar but never do because I’m not 100% in love with the products I receive now I am really gutted because I really love the look of the Look Fantastic one. Maybe next year I will take the plunge. Great post lovely! xo

    Finally got here for a read of your calendar post. So useful, even though I’ve not got one this year it’s really insightful to read about what’s included and value for money etc. I didn’t even know Asos do one! Looks fab and definitely some inspo for next year… fingers crossed.
    Thanks for sharing lovely. Great idea for a post.
