It’s that time

of year again…

You have landed on this page, so I presume you are a big Christmas lover too!! So what a way to celebrate than counting down the days with a Christmas advent calendar of joy?!

Now, I will be honest… I do find the world of beauty advent calendars quite wasteful. There is often soooo much single use plastic, not to mention, loads of products that we likely won’t actually like or need.

That being said, This year, I have been SO HAPPY to see many brands offering more eco friendly and vegan advent calendars, and I have got very excited over this..in fact, I cannot decide which one I want myself! Please help me decide with a comment of what you would go for in the box below.

So without further ado, I present to you…


Beauty & Wellness


Holland & barrett

£55 (worth over £180)

The Holland & Barrett 25 days of concious beauty advent calendar has such a great variety of products. So many well known, ethical brands such as Weleda, Ethique, Faith in Nature and Dr Organic. From natural deodorants, candles, bath salts and even a gua sha, it really is a month of pampering. I think this really, at £55, with 14 full size products is quite a bargain!


evolve beauty

£76 (Worth £134)

I have to be honest… it think this would be my favourite choice out of the beauty calendars because I am OBSESSED with Evolve skincare. I cannot shout about them enough, and get all of my friends onto them. They are a really powerful skincare range where I honestly think using their products have transformed my skin, and to top it off, its all eco friendly! THE DREAM. This is the first year they a have done an advent calendar and I think its the perfect chance to get to experience their products and see if any work for you. There are 12 days in this calendar and hold Evolve classics such as the gold retinol mask, the cleansing melt and even hyaluronic acid. HEAVEN. Plus you can get a further 15% off with my code EMJ15 which makes it just £64.60


up circle


A great one for clean and ethical skincare lovers… If you havn’t already heard about UPCIRCLE, they are taking the sustainable beauty space by storm. Packed with powerful upcycled ingredients which would of otherwise been discarded (such as coffee granules) it really is a beautiful brand. We have 12 doors of are you ready for this…BRAND NEW PRODUCTS (very exciting I know!) all ranging between 15ml to 120ml. Not to mention that they have hidden 3 golden tickets within some calendars with the chance to win £100 worth of Upcircle beauty products.


Greener beauty

£177.95 (worth £350)

This eco calendar is jam packed full of beauty and pamper treats, all from small indy businesses. A great way to discover new beauty and brands to support. Not only that, but this calender is 100% plastic free and ZERO waste. 24 windows, with 23 full size items. You will find 9 days of skincare, 8 days of body care, 3 days of makeup, 1 days of hair care, 1 day of nail polish, 1 day of perfume and 1 candle!




25 days of heavenly pampering, made entirely with recycled or recyclable packaging, the LUSH vegan friendly calendar has x4 unique products only found in the calendar. You will find an array of bath bombs, some perfume, shower gel, soaps, Body lotion and shampoo! In true LUSH style they have collaborated with a fabulous charity called ‘Art house’ to design the boxes of joy too!

I can’t find out how much the box is worth, however most of the treats are all full size!


Tasty advent calendars

popcorn advent

What a brilliant idea!! A blooming’ popcorn advent calendar, what will they think of next! For those who are not into sweets and chocolate this could be an excellent idea. Behind every door there is a mini snack back of different popcorn flavours such as Salted Caramel, Toffee Apple, Salted Maple and even some exciting savoury options like Olive Oil, Black Pepper and Sea Salt! Fabulous!


pukka herbs


For my fellow tea lovers…this is a fun edible calendar and something healthier than a naughty piece of chocolate every morning! A brilliant way top try out lots of teas without buying the whole box too! We get 24 sachets which takes us up to Christmas Day!

candy kittens


Yes that is right…Candy Kittens have an advent calendar and if you didn’t know, Candy Kittens is vegan friendly! Hip Hip hooray! This is a really fun ‘build your own’ Christmas tree, great for kids, and great for adults too! This 3d Christmas tree is genius! Plus it’s packed with all of the yummy flavours Candy kittens comes in.

Hotel chocolat

If you havn’t tried the nut milk chocolate from Hotel Chocolat yet….you are in for a treat!!! Honestly it the most luxurious, creamy chocolate. One of my favourites for sure. How exciting is it finding so many dairy free chocolate advent calendars these days! This is certainly a treat and I will be asking my fiancé for this one for sure.



They really do a calendar for everything don’t they! This is the perfect advent calendar idea for coffee lovers, with 24 doors which include roast and ground coffee, decaf, vanilla flavouring and even a coffee cup! I will be getting this one for my Dad for sure!
