This year's beauty advent calendars

It's almost December! Not only does that mean that Christmas is finally nearing (YAY), it also means that we get to celebrate that with advent calendars. I am a huge fan of advent calendars and get a chocolate one every year. If you follow me on Snapchat (minnebellesnaps) you'll probably remember my daily advent calendar snaps from last year. I promised myself I'd get myself a beauty calendar this year, but it looks like a couple of brands beat me to it.. Let's check out the calendars you'll be discovering on my Snapchat & Instagram Stories this year!

Christmas Advent Calendar The Body Shop 2016
The Body Shop Advent Calendar 2016
The Body Shop hits a home run every year with their amazing advent calendars and they usually sell out pretty quickly. This year they have the calendar in three sizes, of which I got the smallest one. This one retails for €75.00 and contains 24 beauty products from their regular range and their Christmas range. Each product comes in a different box with a slogan on the side, this will be such a joy to unpack everyday! I'm not going to post any spoilers here - in fact, I haven't even checked out the exact content of each and every box yet. I love being surprised. Just like other years The Body Shop is donating a portion of the proceeds of a selection of Christmas gifts to the Bio Bridges project which raises funds to help protect rain forests and the wild animals that live in them in Vietnam, Indonesia and Malaysia. And more good news: I went to check my local The Body Shop today and the small and large sized advent calendars are still in stock.

Christmas Advent Calendar Benefit 2016
Benefit is not doing an average, traditional advent calendar and who would have even expected them to.. Their take on the advent calendar is fun, pink & different! The Girl O'Clock Rock advent calendar has super fun packaging, plays music when you open it & contains 12 bestselling travel sized items. I wasn't going to have a peek at the content of the box yet, but unfortunately social media had a different idea and presented me with a huge spoiler. The upside? I can vouch for the contents: it's pretty good. This calendar retails for €49.00 and can be found in Inno Galleria stores in Belgium.

Christmas Advent Calendar Star Wars Lego 2016
And just like last year.. I'll also be showing you the unboxing of the Lego Star Wars advent calendar this year. My boyfriend got it last year as well & it's really fun to open every day. It contains 24 Lego figurines and figures to assemble. I can't wait to see which minifigs will be surprising us this year! This calendar retails for €35.00 and is still available on various webshops.

Curious for more beauty advent calendars..? Unfortunately I can't have ten advent calendars at once, but these are a few others I like:
