The Essence Advent Calendar 2023 is on sale now, and there’s even a DIY version that lets you create your own 24-day calendar for a loved one
Not only is the Essence Advent Calendar back for 2023, but the fantastic cheap makeup brand is releasing two versions of its makeup and skincare advent calendar this year.
The first is called The Merry Everything & Happy Always Essence advent calendar, and the second is called the Xmas Mail DIY Advent Calendar.
Both contain 24 of Essence’s bestselling products including lip balms, powders, face masks, and more. The first Essence Advent Calendar comes pre-packed, and the second DIY version comes with the box and the products and you can design your own calendar for a friend or loved one.
We’re big fans of Essence, its mascara is as good as products that cost 10 times as much, and its skincare has consistently performed well in our best serum and best moisturiser group test. The Essence Advent Calendar is usually the only place to get Essence products during advent as it doesn’t tend to partner with other brands.
Below we’ve detailed everything we know about the Essence Advent Calendar 2023 collection and we reveal where to buy them (because it’s not readily available in the UK sadly!)
