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. The Body Shop and Benefit Cosmetics is back with a new one and U.S. familiar brands L’Occitane, Kiehl’s, 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 87 best beauty advent calendars for Christmas 2018! We will be updating and adding new beauty advent calendars daily throughout the 2018 holiday season so bookmark to check back often!
