The best Beauty Advent Calendar 2022 list you need to see

Holiday season is fast approaching, so here is the best and only beauty advent calendar 2022 list you need to see.

But first what is the meaning of advent?

The meaning of advent

Advent or Latin for “coming” or “arrival”, is the anticipation of Christmas. The first advent calendar dates back to the early 1900s. Traditionally, it enclosed a piece of chocolate, an image, or a bible verse behind those little closed doors. Advent calendars usually mark the 24 days leading up to Christmas. These days are characterized by anticipation, hope, internal reflection, and prayers. Now that the meaning of advent is a little clearer, let’s see what advent calendars warrant for these days.

Today, advent calendars have evolved into so much more. Makeup, skincare, chocolates, candles, and pretty much anything that fits the bill (but not necessarily the tiny doors) has a spot in the calendar. We express our love by exchanging gifts, so eventually, advent calendars became another medium of gift-giving.

Beauty Advent Calendar 2022

But don’t be late as the best ones run out of shelves faster than you can say “Advent”. Make your own DIY Advent Calendar with these remarkable gift ideas!

Not to worry, I have compiled THE ONLY and the best beauty advent calendar 2022 list you’ll need this holiday season.

John Lewis & Partners- John Lewis Beauty Advent Calendar

Price: £179.00

The John Lewis Skincare Advent Calendar 2022 is by far my favorite for the holiday season 2022 and is well worth its £179.00 price tag especially when it offers products worth well over £700. That sounds like a sweet deal!

This season’s box includes 14 full-sized products from some top names like Olaplex, Dermalogica, Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Sunday Riley, and Augustinus Bader and that’s only to name a few.

Space NK- Space NK Beauty Luxury Advent Calendar 2022

Price: $280.00

My favorite products are featured in the Space NK’s Skincare Advent Calendar 2022, which is why it comes second on my list.

Why second? Because these are the products I’ve enjoyed over and again.

There’s more to these advent calendars than ticking off boxes on a list; it also allows you to discover some new favorites.

If you were unsure about a newbie that you haven’t tried yet, this is the perfect opportunity!

The only disappointment in this box is the La Mer. Basic ingredients shouldn’t cost that much money, especially when many other brands offer better products for a fraction of the price.

The Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant is the star of this box. It has truly changed my life, and it’s one beauty product you won’t want to miss out on! Other products worth mentioning are Nécessaire’s Hand Cream, The Ordinary’s Niacinamide, Tatcha The Dewy Skin Cream, and Dr. Dennis Gross’ Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel.

Do I think these calendars are worth it?

If you have the money to spend, sure why not. The beauty advent calendars make for a gorgeous gift. If you are lucky, you’ll get an excellent deal. And no one can say no to that.

So, the real question is do you need a store-made advent calendar?

In my opinion, not really.

After all, the effort and thought behind the gift matters and not the price tag.

If you are didn’t find anything worthwhile from this beauty advent calendar 2022 list, you can easily DIY your advent calendar!

I do have some interesting picks if you are thinking of DIYing the calendar this season.
