As the month of November looms, I’m starting to list my expected gifts needed this Christmas ahead of the rush. Often the best time to source a Christmas gift is the Christmas and New Year sales. For some brands and items however, they tend to sell out leaving no bargains to be had. This was the case with the beauty advent calendars 2018. Most of the big brands and most wanted items sold out late November and never came back in stock. Acting now can mean the difference between securing your beauty advent calendar 2019, and missing out.
I’m writing this article to list a few of the favourite beauty advent calendars expected this year. I’ll state the cost expected for the 2019 beauty advent calendar and then list the contents in as much detail as possible. As always, if you see something you like look to cashback sites and ways of boosting your savings with apps like Boom25.
