The Best Beauty Advent Calendars For Christmas 2021

In the middle of a mini heatwave, Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind but 2021’s advent calendars are already making their way into stores and online. Chocolate may be the most popular tradition but it’s the beauty versions you don’t want to sleep on — and this year’s offerings are shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before.

Every year, big-name beauty brands compete to present the most impressive advent calendar, concealing everything from cult makeup products and perfume to luxury moisturisers and body care behind those paper doors. After a tough couple of years, it seems our favourite beauty brands are keen to treat us.

Including Cult Beauty and Lookfantastic as well as Lush, Jo Malone and more, here are the most exciting beauty advent calendars to look forward to opening in the lead-up to Christmas 2021.


Available this week, ASOS’ 24-door advent calendar is the biggest treat, brimming with products by MAC, Olaplex, Origins, Clinique, Charlotte Tilbury and many more hyped beauty brands.
