Beauty Advent Calendars 2014

With christmas fast approaching its time to start thinking about advent calendars. This month most beauty advent calendars are being launched and if they sell like they have done in previous years its going to be hard to get your hands on one. Here I have put together my pick of the best advent calendars available this year.

1. The Body Shop 24 days of joy

If your a fan of the Body Shop this is going to be a must have. Pack full of mini products. Also with every calendar sold a donation is made it War Child which is a great cause which provides education to children in war-torn areas.

The Body Shop advent calendar costs £50 (but contains £83 worth of products) and is available in stores from the 8th October.

2. Benefit Candy-coated countdown

This calendar is packed with a mix of Benefit makeup and skincare minis as well as some additional surprises. Ideal if you want to give more Benefit products a go without having to commit to buying the full size.

The calendar is £63 (with the value of £109.53) it will be available from Debenhams.com and Benefitcosmetics.co.uk from the 16th October and then available in store from the 1st November in Benefit stores and the top 100 Debenhams Benefit counters.

3. You Beauty

This box comes with a mix miniatures from a variety of brands including Laura Mericer, Glam Glow, Essie and Philp Kingsley. All of the products appear to be deluxe samples sizes so you'll be able to get a good idea of what the products can do.

The calendar is £49.95 + £4.95 p&p to non you beauty members however the boxes valve is a massive £240. This calendar is available on youbeautydiscovery.co.uk

4. Ciate Mini Mani Manor

The calendar comes with 23 x 5ml mini bottles and 1 x 13.5ml full sized bottle. This is great for nail polish addicts as there is a great mix of colours.

The calendar is £49 and is available from several stores including John Lewis.

5. No7 Beauty Treats

Packed full of deluxe minis this advent calendar including both beauty and makeup. Available exclusively at Boots this is the cheapest of all the beauty advent calendars. I hope to get my hands on of these myself so I want to give it to my mum as a pre christmas treat.

Priced at £35 (valued at £130)

6. Selfridges Enchanted Spells

This calendar is full of the world's most luxury beauty brands including Lancome, YSL, Kiehl's and Victor & Rolf. It comes with a selection of fragrances, makeup and skincare.

The calendar costs £85 and is available exclusively at Selfridges.

7. Jo Malone

Now this is the most luxury and lustable advent calendar if I have ever seen one. Containing a mix of mini fragrances and body lotions this calendar is a girls dream gift. Jo Malone fragrances are designed to be layered so you can create your own personal scent, this will allow you to do just that.

Priced at a massive £250 this calendar is available from Harrods from the 20th October and nationwide from the 10th November.

There is a calendar available for every kind of beauty junky and if your anything liked me you'll be putting your name down on waiting lists to make sure you can secure one for yourself.

However if you can't get your hands on one of these calendars why not make one of your own? 
There are some great empty calendars available, which you could stuff with your favourite minis or even convince someone else to fill it up for you. 

Here is my favourite calendar I've found online and have purchased, with the plan to fill with treats for my family. The best part of buying an empty one means you can also reuse it every year!
