2020 Beauty Advent Calendars From Sephora!

I know what you are all thinking: is this girl crazy, writing about advent calendars in early October??

And trust me, yes, I do think that is a bit crazy as well, haha! However, as retailers and stores launch their advent calendars in September now and most of them are actually sure to sell out within weeks, I thought today would be the best moment to merge two of my favorite topics - beauty and Christmas! - and talk you through this years advent calendars from Sephora!

I will include prices, values and also content, so here is a warning: if you want to be surprised by the content of your advent calendars, please make sure to scroll past the content list (and probably avoid any other article written or Youtube video made about them, haha!).

Withouth further ado, let's jump right into it!

1. Sephora Collection Wild Wishes Advent Calendar

Now, this one seriously made my heart beat faster! Sephora launches their very own advent calendar every year containing bestselling products of their in-house brand Sephora Collection.


This years version contains 24 gifts for every day leading up to Christmas and they include everything from skin- and bodycare, to haircare, beauty accessories and even makeup. You will get 15 full-size products and 9 mini sizes, which I think is awesome, becauselong gone are the days where you were stuck with travel sizes in your advent calendars!

The design absolutely lives up to its name: wild prints and an array of super fun colors! Not super Christmas-y, but makes for an amazing mood boosting pop in your room!


The calendar is also a true steal at only $45 - which leaves it under $2 per daily surprise!

2. Voluspa Advent Calendar Mini Gift Set 


It would not be a Christmas blogpost without some gorgeous smelling, luxurious candles, am I right? The Voluspa Advent Calendar is the perfect choice for the scented candle lover (aka everyone!). 

It comes with 12 mini sized Voluspa Candles for the 12 days of Christmas which will fulfil all of your scented candles wishes for the whole of next year to be honest haha! Each candle is 1oz and has a burning time of appr. 15 hours. It's priced at $75, which makes each candle $6.25. Hack: an idea could also be to divide the box and make the 12 candles individual gifts for friends and family!

The design is very sleek and sophisticated - definitely a looker on your vanity!

Spoiler alert! Here is what's inside:

It includes 12 votives of the signature Japonica collection: Goji Tarocco Orange, Persimmon & Copal, Santiago Huckleberry, Japanese Plum Bloom, Yashioka Gardenia, Panjore Lychee, Mokara, Nissho-Soleil,French Cade Lavender, Baltic Amber, Moso Bamboo, and Crane Flower.

Price-wise this advent calendar truly is a winner: it's priced $65 while the value is a whopping $139! 


Now, while the packaging is definitely very girly and very... PINK, I like the unique shape and the way you "unfold" your beauty goodies - such a fun touch!

4.  Ciaté London Mini Mani Month Advent Calendar


And last but not least: something for the mani lover! I personally love doing my own nails, it's even a bit therapeutic for me, hahah and this advent calendar really has you covered in all your nailpolish needs.


It contains 22 different nail polish minis that range in a huuuuge array of colors, a lip oil and a full size nail polish as well! What's amazing: they recently re-formulated their products and these minis now contain 80% organic ingredients - way to go Ciaté!


It retails for $65, which makes it $2.70 per product - for comparison, a full size Ciaté polish usually costs $14 and a mini $9. If you have tried Ciaté before, you would know that their quality is amazing - I especially rate their glitter polishes! 


The packaging is fun and girly and I just think this would make an awesome gift for someone that likes to play with nail colors!
