The best beauty advent calendars 2019
An editor-approved selection of the best beauty advent calendars 2019 has to offer, because luxurious products beat tiny chocolates
Most beauty calendars are actually worth double or triple in retail value – meaning you get to try testers and full-size products (often award-winners and bestselling heroes) along with new must-haves before anyone else, all at a discounted price. Plus, if there are any items you’re not totally sold on – they also make the best stocking fillers for friends and family too. Here’s our lowdown of what you get inside the best luxury beauty advent calendars Christmas 2019 has to offer.
Also, be warned that the best of the bunch always sell out long before Christmas tunes start taking over the airwaves, so make a note of the on-sale dates and be ready.
