AS THE hol­i­day sea­son ap­proaches, beauty ad­vent cal­en­dars are land­ing on shelves, with even more op­tions to choose from for 2016. Dis­missed by some as a pass­ing trend, the beauty ad­vent cal­en­dar has re­ally taken off, with more ways than ever to count­down to Christ­mas with a se­lec­tion of sur­prise beauty gifts. Op­tions are now avail­able for all bud­gets too, as a host of brands have re­leased more af­ford­able beauty ad­vent cal­en­dars this year.
