60 Best Beauty Advent Calendars for Christmas 2020: Liberty, Jo Malone, Harrods and more 🎅

The countdown to the festive period has begun – and we can’t think of a better way to get excited than browsing the latest crop of beauty advent calendars.

Don’t get us wrong, we still plan on treating ourselves to a traditional chocolate calendar, but what beauty lover can resist waking up to a lipstick, fragrance or candle each day in the lead up to the most wonderful time of the year.

Beauty advent calendars just keep getting bigger and better. Each year, the best-known brands in the biz compete to make their calendars the best one yet. The good news for us is that it leads to epic iterations, filled to the brim with beauty favourites. We’re talking all the major players – think Jo Malone, Liberty, Harrods, Elemis, Rituals, L’Occitane and many more.

Housed in intricately detailed boxes with suitably festive illustrations, there are calendars in every shape, size and price points, from the most luxurious, £100+ options, to fan-favourite purse-friendly versions under £100 and under £50.

​These calendars give you the opportunity to sample their hero bestsellers, or exclusive new products worth hundreds of pounds all yours for a fraction of the cost. Open a window or drawer every December day until the 25th to discover the product inside. Get travel or full-sized versions of the most hyped about makeup, skin and haircare essentials, giving you more for your money and truly allowing you to try before you buy.

If last year was anything to go by, don’t ponder these purchases for too long as these covetable calendars sell out ridiculously quickly – the race is officially on.
