The Cult Beauty Advent Calendar 2023 is set to be bigger and better than last year’s. Here’s everything you need to know about its contents, price, release date, and more
Despite December being months away, Cult Beauty has released its 2023 Cult Beauty Advent Calendar.
Not content with the standard 24 or 25-day beauty advent calendars released by its rivals, Cult Beauty regularly goes a step further.
Last year, its festive edit contained 37 hair, makeup, skincare, and lifestyle goodies, and the 2023 Cult Beauty Calendar contents contain 39 products – 20 of which are full-sized.
Keep reading to find out what’s inside the 2023 Cult Beauty Advent Calendar as well as its price and how to buy.
Separately, we’ve also started listing which of the other best beauty advent calendars are available for pre-order or which have opened their waitlists for 2023.
Take a look at all of the best beauty advent calendars here.
There are 30 products inside the Cult Beauty advent calendar 2023 and 20 of them are full-sized. This includes:
Last year Cult Beauty partnered with two charities for its calendar launch. The first was Mental Health UK, the only UK-wide mental health charity that delivers both national and local services that “empower people to manage their mental health in a person-centred and empathetic way.” Cult Beauty donated more than £75,000 from the sales of its advent calendar to this worthy cause.
The second was more:trees. More:trees planted a tree for every advent calendar sold, helping to restore forests which will help with the sequestering of future CO2 emissions. We’ll update this page once we know more about the 2023 charity partners.
For 2023 it’s donating £65,000 to Mental Health UK and is planting a tree for every calendar sold.
Whether or not the Cult Beauty advent calendar is worth it depends really on your budget. We can’t fault it for anything else.
At £235, there’s no denying that the Cult Beauty advent calendar is a major investment. Yet for that price, you get products worth four times as much – many of which are full-sized – meaning that it’s incredible value for money.
In fact, it’s one of the best-value advent calendars on sale this year. Another thing going in Cult Beauty’s favour is the massive range of products and brands that it works with.
Every year we discover a host of new brands through the Cult Beauty advent calendar, or we get refills of some of our favourites, such as the Olaplex No.3 Hair Protector.
What’s more, it’s not just makeup and skincare. The Cult Beauty advent calendar contains beauty tools, accessories, candles, and more.
Last year, the Cult Beauty advent calendar was up there as the best advent calendar we bought, alongside SpaceNK.
We highly recommend the Cult Beauty calendar but if you want something cheaper, we also recommend the following multi-brand calendars:
Last year we did a daily unboxing of a number of advent calendars and this year we’ve taken things up a notch. Ahead of the festive season, we’re unboxing some of the biggest advent calendars of the season so we can reveal which are worth the money, and which are worth avoiding.
