My Top 4 Advent Calendars of 2017

My Top 4 Advent Calendars of 2017 Partylite Holland & Barrett Lookfantastic ASOS

It is October and all sorts of advent calendars have been hitting the shelves, I'm still yet to fully decide which one I will pick up for myself this year, but right now I have my top 4 picks and I thought I would share them with you.

PartyLite Advent Calendar – £19.95

After getting to try out PartyLite last Halloween on the blog, I became a great fan of how well the scents throw and the huge range of different scents they offer. I did actually buy their 2016 calendar for myself and loved it, so this December I am really considering doing the same again. After all, you get 24 days worth of tea light fragrance, with the calendar offering 2 of each scent across the days, allowing you to really try them out and know if they are for you.

You can buy the PartyLite Advent Calendar via your local rep or their website.

Holland & Barrett Natural Beauty Advent Calendar – £35.00

This is perhaps the first calendar that made it onto my list this year. Containing all natural beauty product such as Dr Organic Snail Gel, Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton Facial Oil, Facetox and so much more this really is a calendar full of beauty products I think I would use. After all, it is really playing into my current love of trying out different skin care products, rather than including makeup items in colours I will never use.

The Holland & Barrett Natural Beauty Advent Calendar includes 12 different items, with a total RRP of over £70 for all the items included.

Lookfantastic Beauty in Wonderland Advent Calendar – £75.00

If you have a bit more money to splash out on an advent calendar then the Lookfantastic calendar may be right up your street. This one of a kind calendar includes 16 deluxe samples and 9 full-size items, of which 19 are completely exclusive to Lookfantastic. The fact this one includes good sized products and isn't in the £100s of pounds like some other offerings makes this one a perhaps on my list.

If you fancy trying the Beauty in Wonderland Advent Calendar* it is in stock now.

ASOS The Advent Calendar – £55.00

For those who love ASOS they have, this year, brought out their own calendar. Which includes a mix of makeup, skincare and haircare and includes brands such as Smashbox, Eyeko and Cowshed. As someone who has used ASOS for many years, I know this will offer great value and will include some great brands, making it a real “maybe” on my list.

The Advent Calendar from ASOS is on sale now.

So there are a few calendars I am thinking about getting this year if these don't take your fancy, but I have made you fancy something similar then please do check out the lovely Beauty Queen UKs advent calendar round up.

What do you think of these 4 calendars, do any take your fancy?

    They all look wonderful and makes it hard to choose which one to purchase. Maybe splurge and get two.

  2. Alli Smith

    Beauty in Wonderland is my favorite. They all look like great advent calendars, but that one caught my eye. I imagine the products are pretty awesome!

  3. valmg @ Mom Knows It All

    I have always been fascinated by Advent calendars. My favorites are the ones that are reused year after year and passed down, no products just characters, animals or something else meaningful.

  4. Amber Myers

    These are some lovely advent calendars. Normally I just stick with ones filled with chocolate, but maybe I’ll branch out this year.

  5. Tomi C

    My fave is the Holland & Barrett Natural Beauty Advent Calendar. Looks like a great way to sample some new products while gearing up for Christmas.

  6. Christy Maurer

    I have always loved advent calendars. I’d get so excited to see what was behind the windows! These are great grown up ones!

  7. Isabel

    Ohhh this post is brilliant, I love beauty and lifestyle advent calendars so much. I really really want the ASOS one!

  8. Jeanette

    I love advent calendars. I am a kid it hurt when it comes to Christmas and I love having the countdown. These are some pretty nice looking advent calendars. Would be fun to get one of them just because they are fancy.

  9. Jess

    I REALLY want a posh calendar this year but I can’t find one that has a product behind every door I like haha. I’m too picky! I was really disappointed by the Asos one cause there were only a few bits I liked.

    I’m obsessed with watching all the unboxings on Youtube. Having said that I haven’t yet seen the Look Fantastic one – it looks AMAZING! I’m watching an unboxing on my ipad now and day 1 has me excited already.

  10. Joanna @ Everyday Made Fresh

    Those all look like great options! We always end up with the Lego Friends advent calendar since my daughter is currently obsessed.

  11. Ashley

    I would pick the natural beauty calendar. Did you see they have a wine one now? I know lots of people who would want that one!

  12. Chubskulit Rose

    The Beauty in Wonderland design is beautiful! Time is flying by, and I have seen some of these in our store as well.

  13. The Jedi Wife

    You know, for me being a beauty blogger, I have never picked up a beauty-related advent calendar! I may have to change that this year and am eyeing the one from ASOS.

  14. Jenn

    I don’t know much about beauty products, but the Beauty in Wonderland calendar looks really nice. Any of these would make for a great gift for our older daughter.

  15. Aishwarya Shenolikar

    All these calendars are so pretty & amazing! I liked Beauty in Wonderland the most!! 🙂

  16. Patrick

    Is it fair to ask why these calendars are so expensive? The first is priced fairly as our calendars are priced the same but after that…..just wondering its a cultural thing. Thanks for letting me ask.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      It depends on the content, for instance, the £75 has £300 worth of content so it is rather a bargain really. There are calendars that got up into the £100s for all different things, be it alcohol or beauty etc..

  17. Anne Yedlin

    They all look like great Calenders and would be so hard to choose from. I think I would be pleased with any one of them.

  18. Heather Johnson

    What a great selection of Advent calendars! I am thinking of making an Advent calendar for my kiddos this year.

  19. Lavanda Michelle

    These are some nice advent calendars. Normally I purchase for friends, but maybe I’ll get one for myself.

  20. Jennifer Bendewish

    Oh my gosh…. it is almost that time of year and you just got me excited about it. My girls are 7 and 8 and we actually use a couple of different calendars, strategically placed around the house.

  21. Ivianat

    I like 3 out of the 4! I love the beauty in wonderland and the Asos one the most! Might consider getting them. Cheers!

  22. Marysa

    These are so neat! I had no idea they made such lovely advent calendars, no less for adults! What a treat to be able to open up a new goodie every day.

  23. Lian

    I love advent calendars. It is especially nice to have one that carries fun products to try. If I had to have any of the ones you featured, it would be the one from ASOS. I am a fan of their products and opening a treat every day until Christmas!

  24. Sapphire Kharyzma

    What interesting choices you have listed. I don’t know which I would prefer, as I think I like a few of them!

  25. Terri Beavers

    I have to have an advent calendar and haven’t seen these before. I think I’d buy the Lookfantastic Beauty in Wonderland Advent Calendar.

  26. Sondra Barker

    Advent calendars are one of my favorite Christmas traditions! Can’t wait to buy mine for this year!!

    Sondra xx

  27. five little doves

    An ASOS calendar?? How did I not know about this! What an amazing idea, I love advent calendars but would love something a little special!

  28. bradley allen

    Wow that’s a lot of money for an advent calendar! Give me a chocolate one any day! (But I do think it’s interesting that companies are capitalising on this idea!)

  29. Morgan Smith

    OMG I want all of these! They all look so nice.

  30. Madeeha

    You picked some interesting advent calendars. Asos one looks good to me.

  31. Kita Bryant

    I can see why they are the top picks! I really love the Beauty in Wonderland one.

  32. Elizabeth

    What super ideas for advent calendars! I quite like the look of the Holland & Barrett one. I’ll have to drop a not so subtle hint to my husband!

  33. Bonnie G

    These are super cool! I really want to get these for this year now.

  34. Margaret Gallagher

    I want them all!!
    Seem to get Better year on year
    Beauty in wonderland will be top of my list

  35. Jen

    I love that you can get Advent Calendars with a little treat in each door, and not just chocolate (seeing as I don’t even like chocolate). Would be nice to buy for yourself, but fab as a gift too.

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      It is really awesome you can get them with so many different things in now and for all different prices as well, Wilko’s have a beauty one for just £5!

  36. Anosa

    I too am yet to decide on which one I will get this year but the ASOS is always the fan favourite in my home.

  37. TColeman

    That Lookfantastic Box is so awesome! I would love to do one of those styles this year.

  38. Susie Wilkinson

    I’ve seen that Asda are going to be selling a cheese advent calendar, I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited!

  39. katrina downie

    This is fab, ive done my top 3 boots advent calendars i need to work through other stores now. I like the asos one most out of these

  40. Mimi Green

    I never thought about having an advent calendar in our home. Lately, I’ve seen several in stories that I really enjoy. I’m thinking about getting one this year.

  41. Cristina Leau

    I like the Beauty in Wonderland Advent Calendar. Maybe this year this will be my Advent Calender

  42. Annemarie LeBlanc

    I have not tried any Advent calendars but I guess there is always a first time. The ones you featured here are all so pretty, I will surely have a hard time choosing!

  43. Emman Damian

    Ber months means Christmas season. I love the Wonderland Advent calendar. My parents would really love it.

  44. Lisa prince

    last year i had a candle one and loved it , i missed the chocolate but having something i could keep was better in my opinion , i would love the beauty and the beast makeup one that was ,limited to a different country though

  45. Kylie

    Oh my time passes by so quickly! It’s that time of the year again! So exciting! And yeahhh, it’s so hard to pick one from those!
