Five Fabulous Beauty Advent Calendars

Countdown to Christmas with our pick of five smashing sets to give or get


Molton Brown 12 Days of Christmas collection $80. Countdown without the calendar, with a differently fragranced wash for each of a dozen days in this gift box from the London brand. From Smith & Caughey’s Queen St.

The Body Shop 24 Happy Days, $329.95. A good number of 60ml sized bottles makes this offering add up. Features skin and body care, cosmetics and beauty tools. The Body Shop is also helping endangered animals and restoring rainforest from this year’s Go Wild Christmas range.

Benefit Girl O’Clock Rock, $78. Open the set and it sings. Inside you will find 12 mini versions of the brand’s best-selling items, including Hoola bronzer. Selling like hotcakes, so you may need to substitute another set. From Smith & Caughey’s Queen St and Auckland International Airport airside.

Clinque’s 24 days of Clinique, $169. A particularly varied box of goodies well worth grabbing for easy holiday season packing. A 10-day set costs $150. From selected department stores and pharmacies.

House of Jo Malone London, $380. Thanks to a wait-list, the (pictured) gem of a Georgian townhouse is gone, but a similarly boxed set of decent-sized scented items is available. From Jo Malone, Britomart and Smith & Caughey’s.
