It’s been a few years since advent calendars took the beauty world by storm, and they’re not going away anytime soon. Pretty much every cosmetic major brand launched an advent calendar with 24 tiny products just in time for Christmas, and here are the pros and cons worth keeping in mind before buying one.

Pro: Great Variety

One of the best things about advent calendars is the great variety they have in store. They offer a wide range of products, allowing you to sample different items before buying a full packaging.

Con: Sample Sizes

Your advent calendar would be pretty gigantic if it didn’t feature products in tiny sample-sized bottles. If you’re looking for products you can use on multiple occasions, you probably won’t find them here because the packaging is pretty tiny.

Pro: Value for Money

Advent calendars offer a cost-effective way to try many new products because the value of the products included is usually higher than the cost of the calendar itself.

Con: Waste of Money

Despite offering great value for money, advent calendars can be pretty expensive. It also doesn’t help their case that you’ll probably find some of the products useless, so they’ll end up going to waste.

Pro: Amazing Gift

Advent calendars can be a great gift for yourself and other beauty lovers in your life. They bring an element of surprise and a sense of excitement that can’t be created any other way.
