As much as we try to fight it, December is less than two weeks away, which means yet another year is almost over. And while I would never, ever rush through the holiday season (from December 1 to 26, you can bet your ass this is me), that fact truly scares the crap out of me. So, to deal, I do what any other grownup does: get an advent calendar to make the last month of the year that much sweeter. And while my mom never, ever fails to get me a chocolate one (yes, I’m pushing 30–WHAT’S YOUR POINT), this year, I’m reaching for some beauty advent calendars instead. Because, you know, my metabolism is slowing and I just can’t gobble down chocolate like I used to. Plus, I really like beauty stuff. So, for the beauty lover in your life, we’ve rounded up 10 chocolate-free advent calendars for every price range to make your shopping a little easier. (PS: Every day in December we’re going to be popping open our favourite beauty advent calendars, so follow us on Instagram to catch all the action on our Insta stories!)
This budget-friendly advent calendar takes the whole 12 days of Christmas thing (though, fun fact: the 12 days of Christmas is actually the 12 days of celebration that come after Christmas Day. There’s your history lesson for the day) and turns it into 12 days of gorgeous beauty products, including some face masks and other skincare faves, plus some of THE FACE SHOP’s favourite products.
