Marks & Spencer's beauty advent calendar is back for 2022 - and it's better than ever

·3-min read

There’s a reason why they call it "the most wonderful time of the year". Dressed in cosy knitwear with Michael Buble continuously on loop and full permission to indulge in multiple Quality Street selection boxes, it’s fair to say Christmas is a season worth getting excited for – even in September.

It goes without saying that chocolate advent calendars will forever remain a tradition, but we’d really rather be unwrapping a beauty treat each day in December. Every year the competition grows, with retailers and brands competing to pull off the most extravagant offering. While there are some that never fail to induce delight – including Charlotte Tilbury and Jo Malone – few achieve the popularity of the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar.

Featuring a mixture of M&S own-label products and big name brands including Philip Kingsley, Eyeko, Clinique and L'Occitane, beauty advent calendars are a great way to test out best-selling products before you invest fully into them.

Unlike a tiny chocolate that gets consumed as soon as it hits 9am each December morning, the most exciting part of a beauty advent calendar is that you can continue to use the products – and even the beautiful festive box – well after the festive season ends. It really can be Christmas every day (as the old song goes).

How much is the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar?

As usual, you get a lot for your money in the M&S advent calendar. It’s filled to the brim with 25 festive goodies (many beauty calendars only have 12) worth a whopping £300, and you can bag it for only £40 when you spend £30 on clothing, home or beauty in store or online. We just cannot wait.

When does the M&S Beauty Advent Calendar go on sale?

You’ll have to sit patiently as the calendar won’t be available to buy until the 27th of October – so make sure to put it in your diary as we expect it to be a quick sell-out.
