All the exciting beauty releases you need to take note of before they're gone!
We KNOW it’s only September and it’s too early to start talking about Christmas, don’t come for us, BUT there are a lot of exciting Christmas beauty drops happening right now and we just have to talk about it.
Even though it isn’t Christmas time *yet*, the advent calendars we have been seeing have been getting us a little excited we have to admit… We are giving you a rundown of some we have seen so far in case you’re in the mood for some early shopping or even a browse.
1. Pretty Little Thing
Pretty Little Thing have really gone all out with this beauty advent calendar. We see lashes, skincare, hair care, makeup and more, the 24 day calendar has €160 worth of gifts for just €42, Bargain!
This is perfect for a teen in your life if you’re stuck for a present although it is currently not in stock, but we have a feeling it will make a return before the winter months, keep an eye on PrettyLittleThing for updates.
2. The Body Shop
The Body Shop has not one, not two but three different calendars to choose from depending on your budget and need! Each one looks very appealing and makes us want to have a long spa day at home. They range from €100-€200 and are filled with anything and everything you could need for your skin this Christmas season, from bath bubbles to body butter and hair care. These are a gorge present for anyone who loves a bit of self-care.

Complete with special advent candles every Sunday your house will be so zen you won’t feel any Christmas pressures. Perfect present for mothers or sisters if you’re stuck.
4. Charlotte Tilbury
At €185 this one is a bit pricey but for 12 full size and travel sized makeup and skincare bits from Ms Charlotte Tilbury, it could well be justified! The contents of the boxes has not yet been revealed but the surprise is all part of it isn’t it? Any makeup lover in your life will be delighted to receive this, or buy it for yourself, you deserve it! There is currently a wait list on the website for this product.
5. Cult beauty
Another pricey purchase, the cult beauty calendar has a mix of all the beauty best sellers on the site. Worth €1000 the box is priced at €230 and also has a waitlist on the website. €17 from each purchase will be donated to Beauty Banks which is a charity a charity geared towards helping those living in poverty access the hygiene essentials and personal care that are vital for health, wellbeing and self-esteem, we love to see a good cause included in our purchases!
We already know this one will have our house smelling amazing before it’s even opened. Lush has a 24 day advent calendar full of their own best sellers and it’s packaging is made from recycled materials which can be kept and reused. The set can be pre-ordered on the Lush website now, and will have you taking baths all Christmas, which sounds pretty great to us!
Whether you’re treating yourself or someone else an advent calendar is always a good idea, investing in your happiness especially in the dark mornings of December is something we all need to do more of. Which one do you have your eye on?
