BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDARS 2016



It's fast approaching that wonderful time of the year and Christmas Advent Calendars are no longer restricted to just finding a surprise chocolate behind the numbered door, as over recent years an array of different types of beauty advent calendars have "popped up" containing either a selection of 12 or 24 beauty treats. 

The calendars generally house a mixture of miniatures,trial or deluxe sizes and occasionally a full size of either fragrance,make-up, body, bath, nail products and beauty accessories and even though I love my chocolate give me a beauty advent calendar any day, well 12 or 24 to be more precise...


Beauty Advent Calendars are a "big" thing and often in limited supply and due to their popularity, it really is a case of "snooze you loose", so here is a heads up of what's already available or coming very soon.
Every year they just seem to get better and better and I literally want them all, but as you can see they tend to come with a hefty Christmas price tag.
Unfortunately many are not available here in South Africa, but if you have a fear of missing out, then you can order from the brands overseas websites.

I have already found my favourites and my eldest London 'kiddie wink" 
is making a plan 
(I hope, hint, hint Lee).
