This (to me at least) is the beauty of advent calendars and the fact that 20 products are full-size is giving me life. This isn’t full of your viral products (with the exception of Paula’s Choice) it’s full of high-end skincare, hair care and makeup worth more than £1,000.

What’s inside the Lush Advent Calendar 2023?

The Lush Advent Calendar is usually a great way to get hold of a host of Lush products at a reduced price. This includes shampoo bars, bath bombs, perfumes, and more. For 2023, Lush launched two calendars – a 25-day calendar that cost £195, and a 12-day, £80 version.

The larger model (as seen in our unboxing below) has sold out but you can still buy the 12-day calendar. You can find out more about what’s inside the 2023 Lush advent calendar here, but to summarise it contains exclusive products, only available in the calendar, alongside “retro” products.

These are Lush products that were previously on sale, were discontinued, and are now back for a limited time only.

@victoria_woolly_web Filming this Lush Advent Calendar unboxing was carnage 🥲 The calendar costs £195 but is absolutely huge and stuffed full of 25 amazing smelling products. I’ve put the full list of what’s in the 2023 Lush calendar below. The Marzipan Bubble Bar and the Santa Shower Foam smell so gooooood.

What’s inside the Mark Hill Advent Calendar 2023? 

The Mark Hill Advent Calendar is a little different than many of the other beauty advent calendars on this list because it’s dedicated entirely to hair. It costs £75 but it’s worth £155 and contains a full-size curling style with multiple attachments.

The calendar contains the curling wand handle plus a bubble waver, unicurl barrel, blowout brush, tapered curling wand, and mermaid styler. This is alongside a hair wrap, a tangle brush, a comb, sectioning clips, claw clip, and a heat mat.

@victoria_woolly_web The Mark Hill Advent Calendar is a little different than many of the other beauty advent calendars I’ve unboxed and tested this year but I like that it’s different. It costs £75 but it’s worth £155 and contains a full-size curling styler. The calendar contains the curling wand handle plus a bubble waver, unicurl barrel, blowout brush, tapered curling wand and mermaid styler. This is in addition to a hair wrap, a tangle brush (which I LOVE btw), a comb, sectioning clips and a heat mat. I’ve used the blowout brush and tangle brush and I’m a big fan of both. I haven’t tested the other wands yet (and I’ve never used a bubble waver so that’s going to be interesting 😏) Not an ad but was gifted. #advent #adventcalendars #adventcalendars2023 #adventunboxing #markhilladvent #markhillmusthaves #markhilldventcalendar2023 #premiumadvent #hairadvent #adventcalendarreviews #adventreviews #bestadventcalendar2023 #advent2023 #christmascalendar #christmas #countdowntochristmas #hairstylers #wavyhair #hairvolume ♬ Strangers – Kenya Grace

Again, like the Pandora calendar, the Oliver Bonas Advent Calendar 2023 isn’t a beauty calendar but it might make a good gift for the type of person who would enjoy a skincare or makeup advent calendar.

Advent Calendar FAQS

Below we answer all your advent calendar questions.

What is a beauty advent calendar?

Lush advent calendar contents 2022Lush

A beauty advent calendar is a take on the standard advent calendar but instead of religious pictures, or chocolate, you get beauty products behind each door.

You can buy standalone makeup or skincare advent calendars or you can buy calendars from retailers that contain a mix of beauty products.

For instance, Revolution sells a makeup advent calendar, Dr Barbara Sturm’s calendar only contains skincare, while Cult Beauty’s advent calendar sells a mixture of makeup, skincare, hair care, and accessories.


When do beauty advent calendars come out?

The first beauty advent calendars come out in August and September and the releases start ramping up from October.

The Body Shop and Lush advent calendars are usually the first to go on sale, followed by Liberty and Charlotte Tilbury. This is based on previous years, and what we already know about the 2023 versions.

If you’re interested in one advent calendar in particular, it’s worth signing up for its waitlist as you’ll be given advanced notice of its release. We’ll also be adding to this list of best beauty advent calendars as and when new calendars are announced, and go on sale.


Are beauty advent calendars worth it?

Cult Beauty Advent cAlendar 2022 contents price and launch dateCult Beauty

Beauty advent calendars can be worth it if you like trying out a variety of beauty products and brands. They’re a fun and exciting way to count down to the holiday season while uncovering new favourite products.

Many beauty advent calendars are also worth a lot more than they cost. In the case of the Cult Beauty and Liberty calendars, as two examples, the calendars represent savings of £800-£900.

What’s more, you can get cheap advent calendars for less than £50 so, in our opinion, beauty advent calendars are worth it!


Why do we call it Advent?

Clinique advent calendar 2020Clinique

We call it “Advent” because, in Latin, “adventus” means “coming” or “arrival” and it’s linked with the arrival of Jesus Christ on 25 December.

The official Advent tradition, practiced by Christians, starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and usually lasts around four weeks. During this time, candles are placed on an advent wreath which represent hope, peace, joy, and love. Each candle is lit in order each week on the run-up to Christmas day.

However, you start an advent calendar on a different day (unless you’ve got a religious advent calendar or candle).


When to start an advent calendar 2023?

ESPA Advent Calendar 2023 contentsESPA

Knowing when to start an advent calendar depends on the type of advent calendar you’ve bought.

All 24-day and 25-day advent calendars start on 1 December and you open a door every day until either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

If you have a 12-day advent calendar, you should look to start it on 14 December if you want to open the final day on Christmas Day.


Do beauty advent calenders go from 1 to 25 or 25 to 1?

Advent calendars go from 1 to 25, not 25 to 1. The number of the door corresponds with the date so you’ll open door 1 on the 1 December, door 2 on the 2nd December, and so on until Christmas Day.

You can, of course, open advent calendars in any order you want – you can even open every door on the day it arrives if you prefer! – but the correct order is from 1 to 25.

This is because door 25 is typically reserved for the best item in the advent calendar, which is usually a full-sized product.


What number do you start with on a 12-day advent calendar?

If you have a 12-day calendar, you start it on 13 December if you want to open the final door on Christmas Day.

Although you can technically start it whenever you want. Like with 25-door calendars, you start with door 1 and open door 2, door 3 and so on until you reach door 12.


Who does the best advent calendars in the UK?

The brands that do the best advent calendars are multi-brand beauty retailers like Cult Beauty and Harvey Nichols because you can get a wide range of products, product types, and brands.

If we had to choose the best advent calendars from the very long list above, we’d have to choose:

  • Best advent calendar for value: Harvey Nichols – it’s expensive at £250  but you get 45 products behind 24 doors. This is more than any other calendar and the total worth of these products and treatment value is more than £1,300.
  • Best cheap advent calendar: The word cheap is, of course, relative but in terms of the range of products, worth, and price, this award has to go to the Lookfantastic advent calendar. It has 27 products behind 25 days, 12 of which are full-sized, worth £565 yet the calendar itself costs just £99 (or £89 if you’re a Lookfantstic beauty box subscriber).
  • Best luxury advent calendar: Technically the Harvey Nichols advent calendar is the best luxury calendar, but we’re also very excited for the Harrods advent calendar 2023. For £250 you get 25 doors and 25 products. Each one is a premium brand found in the iconic store’s beauty hall including Charlotte Tilbury, Aromatherapy Associates, Dr. Barbara Sturm, and Kylie Cosmetics. It’s worth £1,170.
  • Best single brand advent calendar 2023: This award has to go to MAC. The 2023 MAC advent calendar contains 21 full-sized products and a great range of skincare, makeup, and tools for your face, eyes, and lips.
  • Best multi-brand advent calendar 2023: Again, we’d technically give this to Harvey Nichols but in lieu of that calendar taking all of the awards, the next best multi-brand advent calendar is the SpaceNK calendar. It contains Augustinus Bader, Olaplex, Malin+Goetz, Drunk Elephant, The Ordinary, and more. See what’s inside the SpaceNK advent calendar guide here.
  • Best makeup advent calendar 2023: The Wonderful World of P.Louise Advent Calendar 2023 costs £210 but is worth £500 and all of the contents are exclusive, unreleased products.
  • Best skincare advent calendar 2023: We’re awarding this title to the ESPA advent calendar. Spa-quality skincare that does as it promises. We’ve also started listing all the best skincare advent calendars in our skincare advent calendar UK 2023 guide.
  • Best makeup advent calendar 2023: With a large number of beauty brands getting into skincare, it’s rare to find an advent calendar full of just makeup. The best of the bunch though is the Makeup Revolution Advent Calendar 2023. It contains loads of full-size products worth £96 for just £48.

How to know which beauty advent calendar is best

Harvey Nichols Advent Calendar 2023Harvey Nichols

Knowing which beauty advent calendar to spend your money on can be difficult because of the huge amount of choice. Here’s what you need to consider:

  • Budget: How much you can feasibly spend on a beauty advent calendar will obviously play a huge role but you don’t have to spend a fortune. Every year, a great range of cheap advent calendars go on sale that cost less than £50. Our favourites include Revolution’s makeup calendar and the smaller Boots No7 advent calendar.
  • Value for money: How much a calendar is worth goes hand-in-hand with your budget, but it can often be better to spend a little more to get better value for money. For example, the Liberty advent calendar costs ~£250 but it usually is worth ~£1,000 and many of the products are full-sized. This makes it an expensive calendar, but fantastic value for money.
  • Type: Are you running low on makeup? Do you want to try new skincare, or is there a brand you particularly love? This will help you determine which beauty advent calendar to buy. In our opinion, the best beauty advent calendars are those from retailers such as Cult Beauty, Lookfantastic and Liberty. This is because they offer a huge range of brands and product types. Our favourite single-brand calendars are then P.Louise, and MAC.
  • Sustainability: An increasing number of brands are offering more sustainable packaging with their advent calendars, while others are also donating money to charity and planting trees alongside their calendar releases. The best one for this is Cult Beauty, as well as The Body Shop.

What is a good teen advent calendar 2023 in the UK?

Essence Advent Calendar 2023 contentsEssence

The majority of advent calendars will suit teenagers – depending on your/their budget of course – but there are a number that are better suited to younger people and younger skin.

Our pick of 2023 teen advent calendars include:

Discover more options in our best advent calendar for teens guide here.


What are the best advent calendars for adults?

Technically, any advent calendar can be an adult advent calendar because – as adults – we can choose which type of calendar we want! We’re guessing the distinction comes from the fact many advent calendars contain chocolate or toys and they’re seen as quite a child-like purchase.

However, if we take the term “adult” in the context of adult content, then we’re talking about calendars from the likes of Ann Summers and Lovehoney. These all contain toys and bedroom accessories to make the run-up to Christmas a little hotter…

The best we’ve seen is the Lovehoney Womanizer Advent Calendar, but we’ve listed a host of other options for different budgets in our adult advent calendar 2023 guide.


Does Sephora have an advent calendar?

Is the Sephora advent calendar worth it?Sephora

Yes, Sephora does have an advent calendar. In fact, it has three!

The main, bestselling, and most popular version is the Sephora Favourites Advent Calendar. It’s a multi-brand calendar that contains the likes of Aromatherapy Associates, Glow Recipe, Elemis, and more. You can see the full list of what’s in the Sephora Advent Calendar 2023 here.

There are then two calendars in the Sephora Collection range.

The cheaper of the two, called the Sephora Collection Advent Calendar 2023, costs £49.99 and contains 24 days of Sephora’s own-brand products. The more expensive version, the Sephora Collection Premium Advent Calendar 2023, costs £79.99 and contains 24 days of Sephora products, although more are full-size or expensive than on the cheaper model.

Sephora advent calendars typically reflect the brand’s diversity of products, often featuring a mix of its bestselling or most popular items. These latter two calendars, particularly, are a great way to sample products from Sephora’s range without committing to full-price purchases.

They also make for a luxurious gift option for beauty enthusiasts. While the exact contents can vary from year to year, you can generally expect a well-curated selection that offers a comprehensive beauty experience, from skincare to makeup and other beauty tools.


Chanel Advent Calendar 2023: Is Chanel selling an advent calendar this year?

Chanel Advent CalendarChanel

Chanel is yet to announce if it’s selling an advent calendar in 2023 but judging by last year’s controversy, they may take a wide berth.

That’s because its $850 Chanel Advent Calendar caused an uproar on social media following its unveiling in 2022.

An influencer called Elise Harmon posted an unboxing video of the 2022 Chanel advent calendar to TikTok and criticised it for being full of “knickknacks” such as keychains and stickers alongside travel-sized versions of Chanel makeup and skincare. Despite being one of the most expensive calendars of the year.

Chanel allegedly then blocked Harmon which added fuel to the fire and people took to Chanel’s social channels to lament the French fashion brand.

As a result, Chanel may choose to not even bother with a calendar in 2023, or it will release one designed to get back into people’s good books!


Will there be a Florence by Mills advent calendar 2023?

Florence by Mills lip balm for girls cute whaleFlorence by Mills

As of right now, there is no official announcement from Florence by Mills about a 2023 advent calendar. However, the brand has released an advent calendar in the past, so it is possible that they will release one again this year. If they do, it is likely to be available for purchase in late October or early November.

We’ll update this page once we know more but in the meantime, we recommend checking the Florence by Mills website or social media pages in the coming months for more information about a potential 2023 advent calendar. You can also sign up for its email list to be notified when new products are released.


Will there be a Drunk Elephant advent calendar 2023?

Drunk Elephant was recently found to be the most searched-for beauty brand in the UK so it’s no surprise that fans are crying out for a Drunk Elephant Advent Calendar 2023.

The brand doesn’t typically release advent calendars. Instead, it focuses on Christmas gift sets and bundles.

It also partners with a number of retailers to make its products available in existing calendars. For instance, the Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream features in the 2023 SpaceNK calendar, while the Beste No 9. Jelly Cleanser is in the Cult Beauty calendar.

With this in mind, it’s unlikely we’ll see a dedicated Drunk Elephant advent calendar in 2023 but if that changes, we’ll update this page.

Will there be a The Ordinary advent calendar 2023?

Will there be a The Ordinary Advent Calendar 2023?The Ordinary

Like with the Drunk Elephant advent calendar, Deciem (the company that owns The Ordinary) doesn’t tend to release a The Ordinary advent calendar. Instead, a lot of its products feature in other calendars.

For example in 2023, The Ordinary is already set to feature in the 2023 Space NK advent calendar, the Sephora advent calendar, and the Lookfantastic calendar.

If that changes, we’ll update this page!


Will there be a Ralph Lauren Advent Calendar 2023?

If previous years are anything to go by, there is unlikely to be 2023 Ralph Lauren Advent Calendar. Well, certainly not one that is readily available to buy.

Reports suggest that Ralph Lauren does create an advent calendar each year but it’s only exclusively available for friends and family of the brand. That means unless you work for Ralph Lauren or know someone who does, you won’t be able to get a Ralph Lauren Advent Calendar in 2023.

If anyone knows different, please let us know or if you’re lucky enough to get one, let us know what’s inside so we can live vicariously through you!


Will there be a Sol de Janeiro Advent Calendar 2023?

Just like with the Glow Recipe calendar (and The Ordinary Advent calendar), there is unlikely to be a Sol de Janeiro Advent Calendar 2023 because you often find Sol de Janeiro products inside other calendars.

Last year, we got the Bum Bum Cream and the Coco Cabana Cream in last year’s calendar offerings. We’ve posted a few advent calendars to TikTok in our Advent 2023 playlist and a couple of those also include Sol De Janeiro advent calendar content.

In lieu of a 2023 Sol De Janeiro calendar though, the brand has announced the Sol De Janeiro Ultimate Icons Set.

At the time of writing, it’s only currently on sale in the US but the details are as follows:

Is there a Clinique Advent Calendar 2023?

There was a Clinique Advent Calendar in 2022 – in fact, you can still buy it from a few places – but we haven’t had an official word about a 2023 Clinique Advent Calendar.

If/once that changes, we’ll update this page. In the meantime, we’ve pasted the contents of last year’s Clinique advent calendar to give you an idea of what the 2023 version could contain.

Too Faced Advent CalendarToo Faced

The last time there was a Too Faced Advent Calendar was 2020 and the brand was criticised for the calendar’s high price and poor selection of products. Given that Too Faced hasn’t released a calendar since we’re not holding out hope for a Too Faced Advent Calendar 2023.

However, if we’re proved wrong, we’ll update this page. Below we’ve listed what was inside the Too Faced Enchanted Advent Calendar 2020 to give you an idea of what a Too Faced calendar could contain.
