Christmas is in the air! More of our beauty favourites

More of our favourite beauty Christmas advent calendars

Hi everyone! I hope you managed to get your entries to the Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards in on time! We’re going to have a really busy time in the run-up to Christmas but it’s absolutely worth it because these awards are so much fun to do! Then we can all have a well-deserved Christmas break! Speaking of Christmas fun, beauty advent calendars are becoming increasingly popular and make a wonderful gift to a loved one. As much as I love the chocolate ones, I think it's great that finally there’s some more creativity around the tradition and it makes a lot of sense because December is a month where skin can really suffer from the weather. Personally, I find the Christmas period is also a lot more social than the few months preceding it so many of us will want to feel more confident when we are seeing friends and family who we haven’t seen in a while and meeting up with colleagues out of work. Now, having just checked the leading fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazines, all of a sudden I’m not feeling so original as just in the last few days, they have all posted their own lists of the top beauty advent calendars. And they are long lists too, illustrating how popular these have become. Here are some of the titles: Glamour Magazine - 59 best beauty advent calendars of 2022 containing makeup, skincare, fragrance & haircare goodies Hello Magazine - 60 best Beauty Advent Calendars 2022 Cosmopolitan - 58 Best Beauty Advent Calendars 2022 I like how these lists cover not only the major brands in beauty but also include independent companies. They are also very clear regarding prices so we can quickly make a decision as to whether something is in our price range. I have to say though, the standards of the advent calendars are really high. The packaging is beautiful and they would definitely make fantastic gifts. We do need to make sure we are aware of the sizes of the different products. Many of the products are in travel-size or sample size containers so make sure you check before you buy. They all boast of huge savings compared to buying separately - but be sure to check any special products you have your eye on are full sized before buying. If you are considering buying one of these, remember that you need to get them quick! Kiehl’s stunning and limited edition offer is already out of stock although you can register for notifications on their new website so you can be alerted once they are available again. If, like me, you tend to leave Christmas shopping until the last minute then getting advent calendars in time for December 1st is not quite as simple as it seems but I do love how these traditions add a little bit of love and magic to each day in December and no doubt these are really thoughtful gifts for people who we want to feel special! Thanks again for joining me. I’ll be back again soon but right now I need to peruse all the advent calendar gift sets a bit more! Ciao for now Dan
