6 beauty advent calendars to kick-start the Christmas spirit

Gone are the days where we’d count down to Christmas by crossing ‘X’ on the calendar. It’s 2017 — the year we deemed the year of beauty thanks to big brand launches like KKW Beauty and Fenty Beauty. With these beauty giants making headlines across the globe, we’re not surprised to see an inflation of beauty advent calendars and we are here for it.

Beauty advent calendars are always a joy to give but even more to receive. Opening up these little paper doors of different goodies every day is definitely much more fun compared to marking ‘X’ on your calendar. Imagine waking up to something new to try everyday — now that’s what you call a festive countdown. You may end up with a whole new set of makeup, hair care, or body care by the time you’re done.

This year’s beauty advent calendars come in a huge variation. Skincare lovers can opt for Kiehl’s or L’Occitane‘s advent calendar. If your receiver is a lipstick junkie, 24 lipsticks in NYX Professional Makeup‘s advent calendar will make her jump for joy.  For people who love collecting scents — Diptyque, Atelier Cologne or Jo Malone‘s advent calendar will be the perfect gift.

Time to start shopping so you or your receiver can start counting down, the fab way.
