Last year our Boots Advent calendar sneak peek went down an absolute storm, Beauty Markdown wasn’t even a month old, and it’s STILL one of our most visited pages. So obviously we had to get another invite to the Boots Christmas show. This year we brought along a real camera to take high quality pictures, and you’re in for a treat, as the Boots offering this year is EVEN BETTER.
Scroll down to see calendars from old favourites like No7 and Jack Wills, as well as new kids on the Advent block: Sleek, Zoella and Soap & Glory. Omg, you’re going to love this!
This is always a sell out, and Boots have brought it back for 2017. The waiting list is already open for 2017, and it will be available to buy on the 25th of October.
How much do they say it’s worth: £169
What’s inside: a range of skincare, makeup, nails and for the first time there’s body care products included this year.
If you want this calendar we advise you to get on the waiting list ASAP, there are already more than 40,000 people on it, and it’s more than a month away from being released. It’s a saving of £129 – who wouldn’t want that?
The world went crazy for the NYX calendar last year and this is already available on the Boots site.
How much do they say it’s worth: they don’t, but you’re getting 24 mini lipsticks (we will come back and do the maths on this later, we promise).
What’s inside: minis of pretty much every lip product NYX do – including butter gloss, liquid suede, soft matte lip cream, butter lipstick and more!
You’re lucky we go the extra mile for you, because we got a high def picture of all the colours inside, so you can cross reference them with your existing collection.
Like what you’re seeing? You can buy it here.
Soap & Glory
Soap & Glory haven’t brought out an Advent calendar for quite a few years – but this year’s edition is online now.
How much do they say it’s worth: we’ve done the adding up in our heads and the product value is about £67.
What’s inside: loads of your favourite body products, as well as makeup like the sexy mother pucker lip gloss and the thick and fast mascara.
How much do they say it’s worth: we totted it up to be worth £75, so you’re more than doubling your money.
What’s inside: makeup, makeup, makeup: all your Sleek favourites including THREE palettes, and brushes!
With such a big saving we recommend picking this up ASAP if you like the look of it. It’s a really beautiful calendar any makeup obsessive is going to LOVE.
Another newbie to the Advent calendar world… well, strictly speaking, this is a 12 days of Christmas calendar, but we thought you might want to see it anyway – it’s out now if you fancy it.
How much do they say it’s worth: they don’t, and it’s difficult to say because it’s all new lifestyle products.
What’s inside: not makeup! We sort of expected it to be body care, but there’s a candle, room spray, biscuit cutters etc.
I don’t know if you can tell from the picture, but it’s pretty massive actually.
As we said, this is available in store and online now.
Liz Earle’s 12 days of Christmas calendar is available here now.
How much do they say it’s worth: we don’t know! We’ve asked them for more details so we’ll keep you updated.
What’s inside: lots of incredible skincare minis – take a look at the photo below and tell us if you recognise anything.
This beauty is already out. I’d just like to state that this was the HEAVIEST Advent calendar we held yesterday. Like, I actually almost dropped it.
How much do they say it’s worth: We’re not sure yet but we’re going to find out for you!
What’s inside: loads of body and bath stuff. This would be great for someone who needs pampering. You can see a list of everything it contains here.
For an Advent calendar this isn’t actually all that Christmassy looking, so if you don’t celebrate Christmas this could be an option for you. Pick it up here.
Teen favourite Jack Wills is back with a second beauty Advent calendar after the success of last year. You can get your hands on this year’s edition here.
How much do they say it’s worth: we aren’t sure yet!
What’s inside: it’s a mystery, but we are on the case, just like Sherlock Holmes.
So, what do you think? Are you going to be picking up a beauty Advent calendar from Boots this year?
We think they have some of the most reasonably priced offerings out there, especially with the No7 calendar – the savings are just MASSIVE.
If you’re looking for something that isn’t on this list we’ve just finished our ultimate list of 2017 beauty Advent calendars and there are calendars to suit absolutely every budget.
