There’s something that just gets me so excited about Christmas early and thats the Beauty advent calendars. I remember a few years back when the craze hit and there was a few odd ones out, Benefit seems to be the one that sticks in my mind as one of the first. It was such a unique thing that I just hadn’t seen before. Now, we see them starting to appear from August.
