Let's be honest, advent calendars are one of the best things about the lead up to Christmas. But if you've gone off chocolate or want to avoid piling on the pounds before the big day comes around, there's good news as there's a whole stash of beauty advent calendars available this year. Whether you're looking to splash out on a really expensive calendar or are looking for a budget option - here are our five favourites.Charlotte Tilbury, £150This calendar is on the pricier end of the spectrum but you just know the products will be seriously high quality. There are only 12 doors to open rather than 24 but they include some serious treats such as the ruby red Hollywood matte lipstick and the best-selling cream eyeshadow in Champagne Pink.Gloss, £12.50This advent calendar from Boots is much more budget friendly but still includes 24 beauty essentials including a nail file, three lip glosses, three eyeshadows and two nail varnishes. Ideal if you're looking to restock on beauty basics or as a gift for a teen who's just getting into make-up.Marks & Spencer Beauty Calendar, £35 (when you spend £35 on beauty products)This one is a serious bargain - although you do have to spend £35 on other beauty products to get it for this price, that shouldn't be too hard as it's a motivation to get started on your Christmas shopping early! This calendar includes 24 treats from a whole range of brands including Nuxe and L'Occitane.Body Shop 25 Days of the Enchanted, £65This is the mid-range price of The Body Shop's three beauty advent calendars this year. It has one up on many of the other calendars as it includes 25 doors - so you get an extra treat on Christmas day! The treats include make up, body butters and bath products and are worth £121 individually!Estée Lauder Companies’ The Beauty Countdown, £150This incredible calendar also has 25 doors and features products from all of Estée Lauder's top brands - including Smashbox, Clinique and Mac.
