While it may seem a little premature to discuss Christmas, it’s October which only means one thing - the best beauty advent calendars for 2023 are dropping. And they’re dropping fast. All of the major brands are already sharing their offerings, think Liberty London, Harrods, Sephora and Cult Beauty, to name a few. There’s no denying we’re spoilt for choice.

The latest brand joining the beauty advent calendar line-up for 2023 is M&S which has long been considered one of the best beauty advent calendars out there thanks to its low price point and luxury contents. And we can confirm that this year is no exception. It’s jam-packed with some of the most-loved brands in beauty, from spoiling self-care essentials to glow-up heroes. Scroll on for all the spoilers.

    Is the Marks and Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar worth it?

    Our Verdict

    Rachael Martin, junior beauty editor:

    'Honestly? As beauty advent calendars go, this one is up there when it comes to excellent value for money. I love the fact that it comes in a reusable metallic case for starters – there's minimal waste and it looks beautifully festive. And that's all before I can get started on the products. Trust me when I say there's something exciting behind each and every door. Stand-outs for me include the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara (amazing for mimicking falsies) and the Aveda Botanical Repair Styling Cream (ideal for tempering flyways) - these two products have become failsafes in my beauty routine. And a reminder of those savings, too. For just £45 you'll receive a whopping £340 worth of products. A Merry Christmas indeed.'

    Overall rating

    M&S does it again. 5 out of 5.
