When we were kids it was all about the chocolate, fast forward to grown up times and it’s all about the Christmas beauty advent calendar! On a mission to keep you stocked up in the latest make-up and beauty products well into the new year, all the best companies reveal their calendars as the most exciting and beautiful way to countdown to Christmas!
Not only that, but the products (priced individually) are often much more expensive than the cost of the advent calendar, so really – you’re saving money! And if you want to be really nice (tis the season and all that) – and you’re not a beauty product hoarder like me – you could even give these out to friends and family as sweet little gifts. I wouldn’t, but you totally could!
If you need anymore convincing about why you need to get yourself a beauty advent calendar this year, read on to check out my round up of the best ones to hit the shelves… but you’ve got to move fast as these babies sell like hot cakes – or chocolate yule logs!
