Additional Things You Should Know

What Are Some Things to Consider When Shopping for a Beauty Advent Calendar?

When it comes to finding a beauty advent calendar, there are a few things to keep in mind. 

  1. Ask yourself, do you want a box that only has skincare, haircare or makeup products? Or do you want a mix of beauty products across categories? 
  2. Next, consider whether you or your gift recipient would prefer products from a specific brand or get to try a bunch of different brands in one set?
  3. Finally, analyze how many products come in each set to get a sense for its total value and take a close look at shipping times.

What Are the Most Popular Beauty Advent Calendars?

Although we’re not in the thick of the holiday season just yet, there are a few popular picks to get a headstart on your shopping list. A quick look through social media and it seems that people are sticking with annual beauty advent calendars like LookFantastic and Charlotte Tilbury, who never disappoint with their splurge-worthy sets. Another advent calendar we’re predicting is going to be huge this year is the MAC set, which features some of the brand’s best-sellers and has many TikTokers adding it to their wishlists.
