29 Best Beauty Advent Calendars of 2020

If Advent Calendars strike you as a kids’ tradition, wake up and smell the sheet mask essence—it’s 2020, and beauty brands are going all out to treat skincare lovers, makeup addicts, and fans of an at-home pampering to boxes filled with beauty goodies! These daily-treasure-style beauty boxes have established popularity in the UK, and are gaining traction in the US where we’re learning to treat ourselves more readily (it’s about time). On top of making for great self-love booty, they serve as fantastic gifts—know as you shop around that some boxes feature slightly different US and UK versions. Our focus is on the US boxes, but scroll down to the bottom to see some of our UK-exclusive recs.

On this list, you’ll find month-long options alongside 12-day offerings from some of your favorite cosmetics and skincare subscriptions (like Glossybox, Look Fantastic, and Macy’s), as well as sought-after beauty brands for which a round-up is more of a rare treat (get ready for Benefit Cosmetics, L’Occitane, and ASOS).

But how will you choose? Okay, that one’s entirely up to you, so pause for a moment to think what you might want from a beauty Advent Calendar—a new lipstick, eyeshadow, or liner to surprise you every day? A tour of cleansers, toners, and face oils? There’s totally something for every beauty personality out there.

Okay, you’re in, when can you get your hands on a 2020 beauty Advent Calendar? Oh-so-soon! Some beauty brands have already opened up pre-orders. Most go live for purchasing in October. We suggest getting your ducks in a row now and setting your calendar—a lot of these babies sell out fast.

Ready to explore your options? Scroll down—spoilers ahead!

Comments (15)

  1. Net-a-Porter is not on the list and it is high value. I was looking for a thread that Luna gave her evaluation of calendars cost vs value but couldn’t find it here. It would help if this post showed the still available calendars

  2. All these small plastic bottles are giving me anxiety. I was just at Nordstrom yesterday and they have a recycling program so when you are done with your sample bottles please recycle.

    They accept all except perfume, nail polish, nail polish remover, electronics, or full bottles of products.

    If you don’t have a Nordstrom near you, you can try Terracycle. Mac and Kiehl’s have their own programs.

    • Oh my gosh Vivian, that’s a great tip! Thank you for sharing that info. Absolutely worth spreading around.

    • Yes, thank you for this info! I knew MAC has an empties recycling program, but I think it’s just for their products (tho I definitely could be wrong!). I had no idea Nordstrom does this. Awesome!

  3. I’m surprised that Seohora’s advent calendar is near the top of this list! It has been notoriously bad! This year’s does look more promising, but I don’t think that warrants it’s high rank. Ulta’s advent looks great and wasn’t even mentioned here.

  4. I got Yesstyle advent calendar, this is the third year in a row I try to get it and I was finally able to. Costed $130 (after million coupons) and has a value up $400. 24 kbeauty full size products, I’m obsessed!

    • Yes!!! I was going to post a comment about this as well. I was able to get it after the gold presale cause it sold out so quick.

  5. The cult beauty calendar shouldn’t even be on this list considering it sold out in hours and would not be available for shipping to the United States after posting on Instagram that they would. Don’t give them any more advertisement.
    It’s not getting restocked

    • Thanks for your feedback, Cara. Some of these calendars really do go so fast! I added this one to our small UK-only section at the bottom since some of our readers aren’t from the US, but we’ve updated it with a note that it’s now sold out.

    • Eek, thanks, Rachel! Yay for you getting your hands on a beauty chest, hope it’s amazing!

  6. Which one has flowerbomb?

    • Same question, here for anything that has flowerbomb 😆.

    • Hey Jenna & Sona! Flowerbomb was in Glossybox’s 2019 advent calendar—so sorry for the misleading imagery, we’re working on updating it to reflect 2020 goodies right now. <3

    • This years GlossyBox has flowerbomb nectar
