Christmas is coming! Aren’t you excited? I’m definitely in the festive mood and already started thinking about gift ideas, holiday attire and beauty looks. It might be a tiny bit early to start talking about Christmas since Halloween is still days away but I can’t help it especially after discovering so many beauty advent calendars that launched or will be launching this year.
Now last year, we saw a lot of different beauty advent calendars come from the UK (Boots, Ciate, etc) and a few from the U.S. but that sure has changed this year. Benefit Cosmetics is back with a new one and U.S. familiar brands L’Occitane, Kiehl’s, The Body Shop, Clarins and even Bare Minerals have now jumped on the trend which means more beauty advent calendars to lust over and snatch up.
Check out the 39 best beauty advent calendars for Christmas 2017! (Note: I will be updating the post all through the holiday season, swapping out last years with new beauty advent calendars for the 2017 season, so bookmark this page and check back often).
