Cast your minds back a few years and the best beauty advent calendars were hot property. Sometimes selling out quicker than you could say "what's behind door 24?", it wasn't unheard of for these money-saving bundles to cause queues outside department stores on the day of launch (we're looking at you, Liberty London).

Thankfully, cottoning onto beauty shoppers' demand, brands no longer make quite such limited supplies of their coveted calendars – though that's not to say they don't still sell out year after year. If you have your eye on a particular brand, it's always smart to make a note of its on-sale date to avoid disappointment. 

There are really two routes you can go down when selecting one; either look to a specific brand you love – Charlotte Tilbury, Kiehl's, or MAC, for example – to get your hands on a selection of their much-loved miniature and full-size products, perhaps sprinkled with a few limited edition treats. Or, go for a department store or e-tailer (Space NK, Cult Beauty, Selfridges and co), to get a mixture of iconic products across makeup, haircare, skincare, and even the best perfumes for women. Something you love is almost guaranteed to be in there, but it's also a great way to discover new beauty favourites - meaning it's also a perfect beauty gift idea

Some people are of the opinion that it's never too early to start thinking about the holidays, and we think that's certainly true in the case of beauty advent calendars. Ahead are some of the best buys for 2023, and most are already on sale.
