Wishlist: Top 5 Beauty Advent Calendars 2014

Hey there!

Christmas is just around the corner, it feels like wherever I go there's a festive reminder that I need to get a move on with my shopping! The lights are up in London, every shop has it's seasonal display in full glory and even the long awaited Coca Cola advert has been premiered. Which to me and my family, is a festive time mark that announces the beginning of Christmas.

So what better way to kick off this season, than with my personal Top 5 'Must Have' Beauty Advent Calendars. 



Any self professed lover of beauty will know about the gorgeous variety of beauty calendars which are available online and on the high street. I personally discovered this phenomenon last year, and spent most of the run up to December lusting after them but never actually got round to purchasing one. So this year I've decided to do my research and have compiled a list of my Top 5, to put on my wishlist to Santa Claus. 



5. The Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar - £85.50

Arguably the most desirable of the array of calendars available, with an incredible mixture of brands ranging from Lancome to YSL. However this gem, comes at a price (which is very reasonable for the products you recieve inside, but a little outside of my budget.) Plus it has already sold out in store and online! For this reason, it only makes it to #5 on my list. Maybe next year I'll be able to bag myself one of these babies!


4. The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar - £50.00

This glorious calendar is jam packed with miniatures to buff you beautiful from head to toe. All of The Body Shop's best selling fruity creams and lotions make this the perfect choice for any skin care fanatic! Plus The Body Shop have teamed up with War Child, a charity supporting children in countries affected by war. So buying this will make you feel good both inside and out. 



3. Ciaté Mini Mani Manor Nail Polish Advent Calendar - £49.00

If like me you're constantly changing up your nails, then this is the calendar for you! Ciaté's cute 'Mani Manor' features 17 miniatures, 5 textured polishes, 1 full size paint pot and festive themed nail transfers. Not only is this calendar bursting at the seams with goodies, but it's packaged in a sweet dolls house-esque box. For this reason it easily makes it into my Top 3. 



No7 Beauty Calendar - £35.00

This amazing calendar has reached #2 on my list, the combination of the pretty pink packaging and the No7 branded products make this a beauty 'must have'. Not to mention that the total price of the products is £135 if you were to buy the cosmetics separately in store. That's an incredible £100 discount! For this price, and the consistent high quality of  the No7 brand who can argue? 


1. Benefit Advent Calendar: Candy Coated Countdown - £60.00

And finally *drum roll* my number one spot goes to the Benefit beauty calendar, packed with a variety of everyone's favourite cosmetics. Including: Highbeam, BADgal lash, Posietint and so many more! This sadly already appears to have sold out online, but is still available in store. If you can't find any near you, Benefit have also bought out mini 'Sweet Shoppe' gift sets. They include a smaller selection of their top products which make the perfect beauty quick fix or stocking filler for a loved one. This calendar is any cosmetic obsessed girls dream and undoubtedly deserves to reign as Queen over the rest! 


Of course this post is just my personal opinion, and in no way a reflection of the products or calendars themselves. Frankly I'd be over the moon to recieve any of them! 

Have any of you been lucky enough to get your hands on a Beauty Advent Calendar this year?

I hope you enjoyed this post,

Thanks for reading!
