The 10 Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2023

[unpaid/affiliate/ad] If you’re wondering which is the best beauty advent calendar for you, my top ten should help you choose. Apparently, the popularity of beauty advent calendars is on the wane but you’d never guess from the luxury offerings for 2023.

Beauty Advent Calendars, as well as being a wonderful pre-Christmas treat, are such a good way to discover new products so never be shy to buy your own – you’ll make all sorts of discoveries.

The Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2023 is a smart edit so you only head for the best from the hundreds available. I’ve added a link at the end of each product list should you wish to buy, and I’ll update regularly – many sell out very quickly, so I have a line-up of replacements should that happen (Selfridges has reportedly sold out already).

MAC Frosted Frenzy Beauty Advent Calendar 2023

Best beauty advent calendar 2023 for: the colour curious cosmetics fanatic.

MAC Frosted Frenzy Beauty Advent Calendar 2023. This is 100% for the make up lover – the white and chrome packaging make it full on Christmassy and will be on everyone’s wish list. It’s a good blend of mini and full sizes as well as some limited edition products that you won’t find anywhere else.

MAC Cosmetics is a very popular brand loved by all ages and this is a thoughtful edit that includes skin care, brushes and a mirror – everything the make up lover could possibly need.

It’s £170 with contents worth over £485. It’s the one advent I would suggest buying and splitting up to give as individual gifts – it’s not at all in the spirit of advents but worthwhile if you are on a budget and tend to give skin care or make up as presents.

The Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar 2023

Best beauty advent calendar 2023 for: The beauty curious.

Does anyone ever get tired of the Liberty Beauty Advent Calendars? They made their mark with exciting packaging that depicts the Liberty London Store and even the empty boxes can be found on eBay ready to fill up the following year. 2022’s Liberty Beauty Advent Calendar was their fastest selling product ever in the store’s 137 year history so expect a sell-out.

The Soap & Glory Beauty Advent Calendar 2023

Best beauty advent calendar for: tweens and teens keen to experiment with beauty products

Every year I get asked what a good ‘tweenager’ beauty advent calendar might be. There’s never really a specific category for teens and tweens but they don’t want to be left out of course! It’s a question of suitability I guess, but I’ve picked the Soap & Glory Beauty Advent Calendar because it’s more about fun and playfulness than any ‘serious’ beauty, featuring hair scrunchies, nail files, body washes, a lip mask and bubble bars.

The one anomaly is the Plumping Hydrating Day Lotion, but it feels innocuous. Everything is decently sized and at £46, it’s one of the more budget friendly beauty advent calendars.

SpaceNK Beauty Advent Calendar 2023.

Best beauty advent calendar for: those who aren’t easily impressed!

SpaceNK Beauty Advent Calendar 2023. The best way to describe the SpaceNK beauty advent calendar is as MASSIVE! I have a sample here and it’s huge. I found it interesting that the entire thing from top to bottom is recyclable with water based inks and aqueous varnish.

I like the variety in products – it feels like the brand has made a big effort not to be ‘samey’ and you’ll find some unusual products such as Kosas, Naturium and Bread Beauty, not to mention a 4 pan Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palette. It’s size and the amount of product – 33 of which 19 are full size – gives it the edge over other luxury beauty advent calendars. It’s £240 HERE and for that you get over £1000 worth of product.

The Sephora Beauty Advent Calendar 2023

Best beauty advent calendar 2023 for: Tiktok fans.

Another incredible value best beauty advent calendar from Sephora for 2023. Sephora has many brands that are exclusive to them in the UK, so this advent calendar serves up beauty products that you won’t find elsewhere such as ONE/SIZE, influencer Patrick Starr’s own label and GXVE Beauty by Gwen Stefani.I’d choose this one for a younger recipient as the brands included are skewed to Gen Z (Vegamour, Glow Recipe and Rare Beauty for example) but there is an excellent cross section of hair, skin and cosmetics. It’s £189 HERE and contains over £1000 worth of products – 33 to be exact and we love a double drawer! Full contents listed below.
