Beauty advent calendars are a great way to introduce yourself to new brands and new products, so here is a round-up of some great calendars at a student friendly price point.

Amazon Beauty Advent Calendar 2020 - £60

Priced at £60 with products totalling a worth of £215 this advent calendar is a real steal with 19 out of the 24 products being full-sized. The calendar has some really exciting picks in it, like the Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Liquid Glow – which is great for exfoliation, the Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner, and my personal favourite, the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, perfect for taking off stubborn make-up. With a good mix of make-up and skincare, this calendar has something for everyone.

L’Occitane Classic Beauty Advent Calendar - £53

Fans of the French brand L’Occitane will be all over this calendar. With 24 doors, the calendar offers some of the brand’s cult classics like their Overnight Reset Serum, Almond Shower Oil and Shea Intensive Hand Cream. I actually purchased this one myself two years ago and the luxurious quality of the products was an absolute treat to open each day.
