Whether you’re looking for an extra-special treat for a loved one, or simply want to have yourself a merry little Christmas, I can’t think of many better ways to count down to Christmas than with a beauty treat every day.

I’ve been scouting out the best beauty advent calendars of 2017 to buy now; they’ll sell out quickly, so get them while you can!

Charlotte Tilbury Naughty and Nice Magic Box


OK, so there’s only 12 days rather than 24, but with full-size beauty heroes as good as these it’s worth the wait. The matte revolution lipstick that’s included will be a party season essential.

Diptyque Advent Calendar


Mini candles, fragrances and body essentials await in this luxury fragrance Christmas countdown. I love a Diptyque scented candle, especially at this time of year!

Look Fantastic Advent Calendar


Worth over £300, this ‘beauty in wonderland’ chest of drawers will be great for storing products in long after Christmas.
