Beauty Advent Calendars: The Best Way to Treat the One You Love Most (Yourself)
There are only two days out of the year that I consider really worth counting down to. The first, of course, is the day my summer vacation starts, but surely not far behind is the magical, glorious, festive celebration of Christmas.
When I was small, we had an Advent calendar in my house where I could find candy and small toys hidden behind the flap for each day. Designed with children in mind, these calendars are the perfect “mind-your-behavior-or-Santa’s-not-coming” tools, doling out Pavlovian treats once daily for good behavior, and I loved them.
Now, as a grown beauty addict, I am thrilled that my industry has adopted my favorite holiday tradition into their own yearly production of BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS!! Every brand has their chance to shine in this special opportunity to taste test 24 travel-sized products leading up to the Big Day, from lipsticks to eye pencils to mini-facials and bath products. Is there anything else you would rather do while waiting for the holidays to roll around?
Here are all of the Advent calendars to gift others and ourselves for Christmas 2017.
