Aldi Beauty Advent Calendar – what’s inside? UPDATED – Full contents listed



One of the biggest complaints I’ve heard about beauty advent calendars is that they’re a lot to splash out on yourself right before Christmas. So you’ll be glad to hear that Aldi have jumped into the fray with the Aldi Beauty Advent Calendar. It’s one of the most pocket-friendly calendars of the season. Go on, Treat.Yo.Self.

Aldi are being pretty tight lipped with information on this one and haven’t released a photo of what’s inside. I’ve asked for more details because I know lots of you like to know what to expect from a beauty advent calendar. Will update this post when I know more.

As you can see above, the calendar is designed in a beautiful gold and white theme which looks like it would make a lovely gift.

Aldi Cuvée Royal, to give it its proper title features 24 beauty products from the brand new Cuvee Royal skin care range. Twenty two of these are exclusive samples aiming to lift, moisturise and refine skin ahead of the Christmas period. What do the other two do? Your guess is as good as mine.

Aldi’s skincare range has been widely lauded over the last year. In product tests it has repeatedly performed well against much pricier brands, so this is an excellent way to explore the range.

Aldi Beauty Advent Calendar launches on the 9th of October 2016 and will be available online and in store. RRP is just £19.99, but you’re limited to two per customer. I don’t think there’ll be a huge markup in terms of value, since these aren’t very expensive products to begin with. The value here is in building a nice collection of samples to try out.

And if that has whetted your appetite, don’t forget to check out what’s inside the Marks and Spencer Beauty Advent calendar and the L’Occitane Advent calendar – both amazing.

UPDATE – 10th October 2016

The Aldi Cuvee Royal advent calendar is now on sale and has already sold out online. So if you want one, you’re going to have to go instore. Now that it’s in the shops, Aldi are happy for me to tell you the contents in detail. They are:

  • Cuvee Royal Twin Phase Vita Serum (2x1ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Oxy Serum (4x2ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Refine Serum (4x2ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Moisture Serum (4 x 2ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Power Serum (4x 2ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Lift Serum (4 x 2ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Skin Care with QT40 Luminous Serum Concentrate (1 x 7.5ml)
  • Cuvee Royal Skin Care with QT40 24HR Cream Mousse (1 x 7.5ml)

So it’s all about the serums! Aldi say that: Used together the products have been independently proven by scientific studies to:

  • Help increase skin hydration by 37%
  • Improve skin firmness by 14%
  • And assist skin elasticity by 9%
  • After 28 days of use.

Most of the products in the calendar are exclusive to the advent calendar, apart from the 24HR Cream Mousse and Luminous Serum Concentrate, which both retail at £7.99.

What do you think of this? Will you be buying a beauty advent calendar this year?

  • Oooo not this could be doable. I don’t want to spend a fortune on a beauty calendar when we’re saving to travel. This I could do though! Interesting

    Honestly Aine

    • It’s quite tempting isn’t it? Plus all those mini sizes could come in handy if you’re travelling. #enabler

    Oh I love an advent calendar! Especially with beauty treats.Great price too!

    • Me too. I’m feeling very Christmassy already, and it’s only September.

  • I love those advent calendars! I had no idea Aldi made them too. A beauty advent calendar sounds like a fun concept!

    • As far as I know this is the first time they’ve done a beauty one, so high hopes!

    Love to read about advent calendars, didn’t think Aldi would do them. I like Aldi too.

    • The only problem is which advent calendar to choose! They all look great.

  • I’m definitely making a diary note for the release of this. I think I like that there’s no reveal as well. I seem to be overly judging the other calendars and dismissing them because there’s 1 or 2 things in them that don’t appeal to me! I never did that with the Cadbury’s one!

    • I know what you mean, I’ve gone off quite a few once I’ve seen everything that’s in them. I think for the price you can’t go wrong with this one as long as you like skincare.

  • Jenny Mastenbrook

    Do you know how small the samples are in the Aldi calendar?

    • No, they haven’t released details like that. I have a request in to the Aldi PR for more info and hopefully a photo of the contents but they haven’t got back to me yet. Watch this space, cos as soon as I know more I will add it in to the post.

    • Hi Jenny – Just heard back from Aldi and listed the samples and their size above. They are mostly pretty small at 2ml but you do get multiples of them so there will be enough to try them out properly.

  • Justyna

    It’s on sale in Republic of Ireland right now. 14,99! 🙂

    • Good news! I hope lots of people get to enjoy it.

  • Tracey Hand

    It was on sale in our local Aldi (on 30th November) for £2.99!!!

    • Oh what a great bargain Tracey, I hope you snapped up two

      • Tracey Hand

        I didn’t! (I wish I had, but I didn’t have any money in my budget as I’d also picked up my son a dressing gown)
        I’m hoping there’ll still be some left when I go next week though.
