The Best Beauty Advent Calendars For 2023 To Give Your Besties This Year

There’s no better time in the year than October through December, IMHO. The weather finally starts to cool down enough to pull out all my sweaters and leggings, seasonal Starbucks drinks are back, and the most wonderful time of year — holiday season — falls upon us. Now, I know it may be a little soon to bring the holidays into the forefront, but it’s for good reason. Tons of beauty brands have already released their seasonal advent calendars, which should be a holiday in its own right. Here are the best beauty advent calendars for 2023 to consider adding to your cart.

Beauty advent calendars are some of the perfect gifts because they include an element of surprise with each day in the calendar, plus they offer quality and quantity. Advent calendars are perfect to purchase as a gift to others – or a gift to yourself. These make the perfect holiday gift for the girlies who love anything within the beauty sphere, but don’t like the often-high prices. Along with advent calendars, there are also amazing holiday beauty gift sets for those who aren’t into the element of surprise that comes with advent calendars.

Here are the perfect beauty advent calendars and holiday gift sets to pick up this season.

Olive & June

Your favorite polishes and nail-care sets from Olive & June are now included in TWO holiday advent calendars! There’s the Christmas Calendar, which is 25 Days of Mani Magic ($65), with a value of $127, and the Hannukah Calendar, which is 8 Nights of Mani Magic ($55), valued at $105. These advent calendars have everything you’d need for the perfect mani, including mini nail polishes, glosses, top coats, files, and more. It’s a great deal for those who love doing their own nails at home.


Anthropologie is everyone’s fave high-end store, and this holiday season, they have the 2023 George & Viv Beauty Advent Calendar ($88) that features over $350 worth of premium products from brands like Elemis, Sunday Riley, Caudalie, Supergoop, and more. High-quality products and an amazing price point? That’s too good to turn away from.

Benefit Cosmetics

Benefit Cosmetics is offering an unreal holiday advent calendar for 2023, valued at $329! The All I Want Beauty Advent Calendar ($149) includes some of the best makeup products on the market, with 24 of Benefit’s best-selling holy grails. My favorites in this calendar are the Hoola Bronzer, Roller Lash Mascara, and Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain. I’m definitely going to get my hands on this calendar this holiday season.

Huda Beauty

If you’re dying to snag some Huda Beauty products, I suggest purchasing the House of Huda 12-Door Advent Calendar ($105), which features 12 of Huda’s amazing goodies. My fave products in this bundle are the three eyeshadow palettes and the Samantha Lashes. This one is sure to go quick, so get it now while you can!

Charlotte Tilbury

The viral makeup brand Charlotte Tilbury is also giving makeup lovers a chance to purchase incredible products this holiday season with Charlotte’s Lucky Chest of Beauty Secrets ($210). This 12-day advent calendar includes Charlotte Tilbury’s cult classics, such as the raved-about Beauty Blush Wand and Beauty Light Wand.

Sephora Collection

The Sephora Collection Advent Calendar ($49) has 24 makeup, skincare, and bath products to keep December exciting all month long. Valued at $111, this calendar is full of long-lasting and high-quality products that will keep you glowing all Christmas long.

Another Sephora Collection advent calendar is the After Advent Calendar ($30). This calendar has 11 (!) full-sized products for you to open between Dec. 25 and Dec. 31 to help you get through those post-Christmas blues.

And while it’s not necessarily an advent calendar, the Sephora Collection Holy Sheet Mask Set ($50) is packed with 18 face masks and two packs of cleansing wipes to keep your skin clean and pampered during the holidays. These masks are great for anyone with dry skin who needs extra hydration or wants to have a spa day at home.
