The Best Beauty Advent Calendars to Treat Your Skin this Christmas

Christmas is a time for giving, and while you bet we’ll be giving the gift of socks to some members of the family, the best presents are the ones we save for ourselves. And we’re starting early! December 1, to be exact.

You see, advent calendars build excitement and stretch out the joys of the festive season by allowing a small gift in the 25 days before Christmas. 

Though once an excuse for kids to eat chocolate for almost three weeks straight, advent calendars now cater to almost all industries — beauty being our favourite of the bunch.

Instead of sweet treats, you’ll find cult skincare products, makeup and perfume samples hidden behind the little doors. Even better, beauty advent calendars allow you to test and trial product in a cost-effective way.
