The Benefit advent calendar is back and this time it’s a ‘candy-coated countdown’. It’s packed with mini versions of the brand’s bestsellers and some beauty accessories that will sweeten up your wardrobe. I missed out on the opportunity last year so if you don’t want to lose your chance either,  you can head down to your nearest Debenhams store to reserve yours. Available on also. Out 16th October.

L’Occitane, £45

This box features 13 ‘Pampering Treats from Provence’.  Why that name? Well Provence is a holiday tradition that serves 13 deserts on a festive table. These gifts are like deserts so I like what they’ve done with the wording. You will receive a range of fragrances, body and skincare delights and surprises. Available at from 3rd November.

polished couture yankee candle calendar

Yankee Candle, £23

What better way to get into the festive mood than the scent of a Yankee candle? This advent calendar is available NOW and this 3D calendar is packed with festive candles such as; Christmas memories, spiced orange, candy cane lane, snowflake cookie to name a few! I’ve heard there is hidden surprises too behind one or two of the doors but nothing more has been mentioned.

polished couture selfridges calendar

Selfridges £/tba!

I love the look of this advent calendar, it’s gone away from the festive look and more of a fantasy approach. This calendar is filled with 24 luxury treats from the must have brands. The selection includes makeup, skincare and fragrance from the best brands of Yves saint Laurent, Victor & Rolf, and Urban Decay. Price and when it arrives is hush hush at the moment but you can sign up at their website to get the details asap.

As it is only early October rumors are circulating that even more beauty calendars will be announced. I haven’t mentioned every one but other brands such as W7, Boots, The Body Shop, You Beauty and even L’Oreal are thought to be bring one out, or maybe i’m hoping they are!

    Ohhh! I’m so tempted with the No7 one. One of my friends had one last year and put it up on Instagram every day. I was very jealous.

    They’re expensive though. I don’t know if I could justify it as I have loads of samples from sub boxes etc to use!

    I’ve got my name down for the Benefit one but I’m going on holiday now, so totally stressed in case I don’t get it! Also I was looking at the picture with my eyes half open, I want to peek, but I’m trying to be good…

    I think these are so fabulous but to give as a gift kind of means another one is needed for Christmas day. Ok now I sound like the Grinch. I have seen the Yankee Candle one as fortunately we have a brilliant section for YC in my local garden centre. They are pretty gorgeous! x

      They can be a gift for yourself 😉 i havent seen it in person i bet it looks even prettier in person. I think im getting the No7 and Benefit one x
