5 beauty advent calendars to celebrate the holidays

in Beauty

I think we can all agree that advent calendars are the best. Containing 12-24 little surprises, they’re a fun way to help count down the days in December. While they might not be as big in the States as they are in other parts of the world, the appeal and awareness have been growing at a consistent rate, and now they’ve become a lot easier to find (lucky for me)!

Traditionally they contain chocolate but now you can get advent calendars containing all sorts of things. Teas, alcoholic beverages, legos, and even treats for your pets are just an example of the types of calendars offered. And of course, beauty versions have come out in full force. To help you find the perfect one, I’ve created a list of 5 that are full of amazing products.

      I LOVE their lipsticks! I picked up a chocolate one (for a whole $1!) but haven’t decided on a beauty one yet. I love them all so it’s hard to choose!

    I love the idea of a beauty advent calendar! The Target Care is right up my alley when it comes to thriftiness around the holiday. Thanks for the awesome list.

    These are so cute! I didn’t get an advent calendar this year. Maybe next year! I saw that Target is also having sock advent calendars this year! How cool is that?!
