Beauty Advent Calendars 2022
The Body Shop

With December just a few days away, now's the time to shop for beauty Advent calendars before the time comes to start counting down the days in anticipation of Christmas. The highly-anticipated early Christmas gifts come in the form of a collection of makeup, skincare, fragrance, and hair care goodies that you get to open every morning in December. It's never too early to get your gifting done before these limited-edition advent calendars become elusive. 

Beauty Advent calendars are often similar to traditional candy-filled ones — though in some ways, they might be an even sweeter way to get in the holiday spirit. You still get in the holiday spirit and open a little luxurious gift behind cute doors — but instead of chocolate, you're greeted with makeup and skincare treats like mascara, face serums and hand cream, among other must-have items. Plus, with the wide selection of products packed into these calendars, the value sets are often worth more than the price you pay. 

Our favorite makeup and skincare brands such as Kate Somerville, Kiehl's, and La Mer created beauty Advent calendars for 2022 that are not only a great gift idea, but also a great deal, so they tend to sell out quickly. From budget-friendly to extra indulgent, gift the beauty-loving friend in your life — or yourself, of course — one of the best beauty Advent calendars of 2022.
