November 1st means one thing in our world... it's officially acceptable to talk about all things festive!
If the retail industry is anything to go by, Christmas is creeping up earlier and earlier each year and personally, we're okay with it!
But, extra layering-opportunities, mulled wine sessions and party-sequined everything aside, beauty advent calendars are yet another reason we get filled with childlike-excitement once Halloween has passed.
In our sophistication, we've moved on from the days when the countdown to Christmas involved cheap-tasting chocolate that disappeared in one bite to a new world of opening up tiny paper doors each morning, to reveal everything from mini serums and fragrances to little nail polishes and lipsticks inside.
Whether you opt for a high street calendar or splash out on pure luxury, you're in for a treat this festive season, as it boasts such an array of beauty advent options to choose from!
