Remember when you were little and the most exciting thing about December was opening your advent calendar and counting down the days to Santa's arrival! If you were lucky, you got one that had a little Dairy Milk chocolate behind the window. In our house, my sister Scooby Lou (as I affectionately call her) and I would fight over who's turn it was to gobble it down!!!! Oh happy days!
Now the advent calendar is SERIOUS business and none more serious than the BEAUTY and BODY ADVENT calendar. Let's face it girls, some of them are better than actual Christmas presents. They're like the ultimate TEASER!
This year is no exception in terms of the wonderment of advent calendars currently available. More brands have jumped onto the advent bandwagon meaning we girls are just spoilt for choice when it comes to a festive treat!
BUYER BEWARE - better get yours quick as they are bound to fly out the doors faster than santa's sleigh at midnight!
This is our top pick of calendars which will have us bounding out of bed for the whole of December to see what's behind todays little window!
Some of them are SUPER pricey but hell, we're worth it!
If you don't know who Charlotte Tilbury is then you've been asleep the whole of 2016! This truly fabulous collection includes 12 of her amazing skin and beauty treats including her now infamous Wonderglow and Magic Cream. What can we say. WE WANT!!!

It's one serious advent calendar that is jam packed full of delightful products for the most discerning amongst us. Personally, I'd chop a leg off to receive one of these from my Boo! (before you get jealous girls, that is categorically NOT going to happen. He's not got a clue who/what/where Diptyque is!) It epitomises luxury as you'd expect from this iconic Parisian Perfumer House.
Discover the spirit of Molton Brown with this limited edition advent calendar and reveal behind each hidden door a delightfully decadent treat - body lotions, hand washes, haircare, all infused with the distinct and recognisable aromas we've come to know, love and recognise as signatures of the Molton Brown brand.
