The Glow Recipe Advent Calendar 2023 is on sale now – here’s everything we know about what’s inside, price and release date
UPDATE: The Glow Recipe advent calendar has now sold out. The site doesn’t say that it will be getting more stock in but we’ll update this page if/when it does.
You can get Glow Recipe products in a number of other calendars including the Cult Beauty Calendar but we know that’s not the same as getting a calendar full of the brand’s products.
We’ve posted our Glow Recipe Advent unboxing video purely for reference, or if you want to buy it via eBay or similar, below.
Alternatively, Glow Recipe is selling the Glow Recipe Vault.
It costs £180/$199 but it’s full of products worth $296.
This includes eight of Glow Recipe’s bestselling skincare, the majority of which are full-sized, including the Avocado Ceramide Moisture Barrier Cleanser, Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream, and Serum, Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops and more.

@victoria_woolly_web This is the last of the advent calendars 2023 that I’m unboxing (unless any arrive from PRs that I haven’t ordered or remembered!) and it’s the Glow Recipe Advent Calendar. It’s full of some of the best Glow Recipe products including a mini tube of the Glow Recipe Dew Drops and a selection of other Glow Recipe mini sets. I was hoping for the Glow Recipe toner but alas, it was not meant to be! This advent calendar has sold out, sadly, so you can’t buy it directly from Glow Recipe but I have seen it for sale on eBay (albeit for MUCH more than what it was on sale for…!) Which has been your favourite beauty advent calendar 2023? Which ones have you bought? I want to knowwwww. #AdventCalendars2023 #GlowRecipeAdventCalendar #Adventskalender2023 #GlowRecipe #BestGlowRecipeProducts #GlowRecipeMiniSet #AdventCalendar2023 #GlowRecipeBestProducts #GlowRecipeDewDrops #GlowRecipeReview #GlowRecipeSkinCare #BeautyAdventCalendar2023UK ♬ Style (Taylor’s Version) – Taylor Swift

If you’re into skincare, and especially K-Beauty, then you’ll understand the hype around Glow Recipe.
Renowned for its fruit-based serums, creams, lip balms, and more that hydrate and nourish the skin, this range is well-loved, but also expensive. Such great skincare comes at a price!
This means that getting Glow Recipe for a discount, no matter how small, can’t be sniffed at.
It’s also why we’re so excited that the Glow Recipe Advent Calendar 2023 has now officially dropped.
Worth $95, you can currently get the 12-day calendar for $75 when bought directly from Glow Recipe.

So, you’re eyeing up the Glow Recipe Advent Calendar and wondering if it’s worth it?
For $75 – £61 – you get a mix of full- and travel-size Glow Recipe favourites worth $95.
This includes the Watermelon Glow AHA Night Treatment that’s pretty much a sleepover for your face, to cute pink hair clips.
This isn’t the greatest discount but if you’re a Glow Recipe fan, you may well be tempted.
The downside is that this discount will likely be eaten up by the time you’ve paid fees and customs to have it shipped over from the US.
When we bought the calendar we paid $90 (£76), and that was with a 10% off code.
The breakdown was as follows:
If we didn’t have the 10% off code, this would have been at least $98.46 although realistically the fees may have been higher if the overall cost was higher so it might have even tipped over the $100 mark.
That said, even at that higher price, this still means you can get hold of 10 Glow Recipe products for £80.
So, is it worth it?
If you’re into Glow Recipe and live in the US, this calendar’s a pretty decent deal. If you’re in the UK and you’re a big Glow Recipe fan, we still think it’s worth the investment. If you’re in the UK and only have a passing interest in Glow Recipe, this calendar won’t be great value for you.
As well as the Glow Recipe Advent Calendar, the South Korean beauty brand recently launched its 2023 Glow Recipe Best of Glow Wishlist Vault.
It contains eight of Glow Recipe’s bestselling skincare, the majority of which are full-size for £180. This includes:
Last year we did a daily unboxing of a number of advent calendars and this year we’ve taken things up a notch. Ahead of the festive season, we’re unboxing some of the biggest advent calendars of the season so we can reveal which are worth the money, and which are worth avoiding.
