Countdown with Beauty Advent Calendars

If discovering a new beauty product every day in December sounds like your kind of thing, then your dream advent calendar’s right here. Not only do these beauty advent calendars offer an amazing selection of mini products which allow you to test and try before you invest in the full-size versions, they’re also an exciting way to experiment with new looks for your upcoming Christmas parties – and they’re a handy size for your clutch bag, too. From cult-favourite Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar (filled with goodies from the likes of Dr Barbara Sturm to Sunday Riley) to Lancôme’s advent, it’s time to get your festive face on.

“We have such an amazing range of beauty advent calendars this year! My personal favourites are by chic fragrance brand diptyque (one I’ll be self-gifting), and of course, our very own Selfridges Advent Calendar that’s jam-packed with bestselling products from our iconic Beauty Hall.” – Grace Gargini, Selfridges Beauty Editor Countdown with Fragrance.

Fragrance Advent Calendars

Christmas is the perfect time to treat yourself to the most magnificent fragrances. Enter iconic British brand (and three Royal warrant-holder) Penhaligon’s calendar, filled with a selection of its most-loved scents for you to spritz each day in December. And for the homebodies? diptyque has you covered with its much-anticipated annual calendar (candles, room sprays, body washes and perfumes included) – personally, we can’t think of a better way to countdown to Christmas.

Countdown with Food Advent Calendars

Looking to start the Christmas feasting a bit early this year? A food advent is a great way to delve into festive indulgences and give some new flavours a try, too. Selfridges Mini Mince Pie Advent Calendar is one of the favourites, closely followed by the brand new Selfridges 12 Days of Coffee Calendar (it’s launching very soon and is packed full of an incredible selection of 12 ethically sourced coffees from the best coffee regions across the world). The Naked Marshmallow Co.’s tasty advent is a gooey twist on the classic advent, and Tony’s calendar packed with ethically-sourced delicious bites. Yum.

“More than ever this Christmas, people are ready to celebrate! What better way to count down to the big day than with an advent calendar? Our Selfridges mini mince pie advent has a mince pie a day to count you down to Christmas Day, with an extra-special treat behind door 25. If mince pies aren’t for you, we have our 12 days of expertly sourced coffee to caffeinate your countdown.” – Jessica Abela, Selfridges Selection Product Developer.
