A beauty advent calendar is the most decadent sort of advent calendar.
Loaded with luxurious samples, full-size products, cosmetics, skincare, fragrance, hair treatments, and the lot, there’s guaranteed to be a beauty advent for someone special in your life (or for yourself).
Of course, paying for one makes sense if you want to test a lot from one company and know you’ll get more bang for your buck by sampling numerous goods at once.
