Beauty Advent Calendars are a pretty genius way to justify getting a pre-holiday gift for yourself. Plus, you can discover new products!
I’m a big fan of Biossance for skincare products, and started by ordering this small sample set, which let me try some of the products without a huge investment. Then, I discovered more favorites by the travel and sample sizes they’d send me when I’d order products. (you can read my full Biossance review on the blog, if you’re curious!)
I’ve also ordered samples from other brands – and discovered I did NOT like the products. I didn’t have too much invested and didn’t have to toss out a full-sized product!
All of this is to say – starting with a bunch of samples (like these advent calendars!) is a great way to discover new brands without spending a lot of money on full-size products. Target has a few EXCELLENT beauty gift sets under $20, which make either a fun gift for someone else or for yourself to try new brands.
