One of the traditions that always accompanies Christmas are the advent calendars. When we were little we used to get all chocolaty, but growing up doesn’t mean giving up surprises. Although our tastes have changed, we still like to treat ourselves a little until Christmas Eve, and if we are someone who loves cosmetics and makeup, we couldn’t have it easier.
Every year, many cosmetic brands release an Advent calendar with up to 25 surprises inside. These chests are so highly anticipated that edition after edition they take more care in their designs and beauty ‘influencers’ are unable to wait until December 1 to completely gut them.
It is never too early to talk about one of the most magical times of the year, so for you to get ready, we leave you with a list of Advent calendars that we will not let escape this Christmas.
From facial treatments to the best makeup products, Sephora’s Advent calendar is one of those that fly as soon as it goes on sale. This year it has innovated with post-christmas calendars, but we are left with the premium, whose gifts are all ‘full size’, that is, no miniatures. The real value of the 25 products it houses is 183.66 euros, but we found it on sale for €69.99.
One of the most anticipated calendars for lovers of Korean cosmetics is undoubtedly that of MiiN Cosmetics. This dream calendar hides 24 surprises among the most elegant and original products of the MiiN family, from body and face masks to serums, toners, cleansers, eye contours or hair treatments.
Its real value is more than 260 euros, but its price is €129.95. Unfortunately the units are very limited, so we must hurry if we want to get hold of one.
The Body Shop
The Body Shop presents us with three different proposals for calendars that adapt to all budgets, making it possible for us to afford this whim. Focused on ‘self-care’every day we can find a facial care product, a body care product or adorable accessories from the brand.
Differentiated by size, the largest and with products premium costs €139; he medium €89, where we can find a little bit of everything; and the smaller €59, loaded with mini products.
