Target Beauty Advent Calendar - 12 Days of Beauty Faves
Last year Target had their 12 Days of Beauty Faves available mid-November. This advent calendar is champagne value on a beer budget. And that is exactly my style. Last year, at $25 US, from Target.com this 12-day countdown set included an EcoTools Angled Kabuki Brush, a Sinful Colors Polish and a Me! Bath Soap Bomb among other goodies. It will be available on
Target.com mid-November (we will keep you updated) and it sells out fast.
Clinique 10 Days of Beauty
While Clinique doesn't usually put out a traditional advent calendar, it has a fantastic 10-day countdown option. Not yet released this year, the Clinique set includes a sample of the super popular Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion, cooling eye refresher and a lip color that has been voted a fan favorite. At just $51, it is a great indulgence. Much better than the
two three five sugar cookies I just inhaled.
This option will be available via Sephora in the near future. Keep your eyes peeled here for updates!

The holidays shouldn't just be about the kids. This December, I am making myself a priority. Plus, opening one of these beauty advent calendars should take the sting out of stepping on those random Lego pieces on Christmas morning. Now I just need to slip a copy of this article into the Canadian Tire flyer to be sure that hubby sees it.
