Beauty Advent calendars are in high demand at the moment, long gone is the daily “chocolate for breakfast” ritual. Now, many of us are longing for a fab little beauty treat that we can indulge in during the frantic run up to Christmas.

It also seems that the little ladies in our lives, children, grandchildren, nieces, sisters have also taken on this new found beauty addiction and want to be a part of the beauty Advent Calendar Craze. I have tried out a couple of really cute Beauty Calendars from Superdrug that I think would make fab little gifts for any budding nail technician, beauty junkie or make up artist.
|Flutter Advent Calendar from Superdrug|
First up is this ultra cute puppy calendar which is part of the Superdrug Flutter range. It looks so cute and pretty as its pink and decorated in little Jammie Dodger biscuits and the cutest little puppies and kittens in Santa hats and stockings. If you have a little lady that loves animals this is perfect for her. This calendar has 24 doors containing a cute selection of 8 eye shadows, 4 lip gloss, 4 lip balms, 4 eye applicators and 4 lip brushes. Now as a mother of boys I wasn’t really sure which age this would appeal to as obviously every parent has their own rules about make up for their children. In this instance I asked my sister-in-law as my niece is 7 and she would happily let her use the make up. It is suitable for vegetarians and does say on the back not suitable for children under 3 due to small parts.
|Flutter Make Up Advent Calendar from Superdrug|
I only opened 4 doors so as not to spoil it for anyone reading, but the make up is very cutesy in plain white flower shaped and round containers and I think would bring so much joy to any little girl. A really lovely Advent calendar which at the time of writing is currently half price in-store and on the Superdrug website for £6 HERE
|Studio London Advent Calendar|
A chic calendar which is part of the Studio Make up range in Superdrug, another great little calendar which is currently £6 instead of £16 online. A more stylish looking calendar for the older child/teenager, this contains 4 glitter polishes and 8 high shine nail polishes. Each polish is 3.6ml in size but enough to get a couple of manicures out of with a nice coverage and longevity. The range also has full sized polish, make up brushes and make up palettes so definitely take a look. Again not suitable for under 3 due to small pieces and it is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. Obviously you know the boundaries for the children you are buying for and which age is acceptable but my 8 year old niece loves these as would any teenager or young adult.
|Studio London Nail Polish Advent Calendar|
Both these calendars are fab and at the moment Superdrug have these on sale so do be quick. Superdrug also offer lots of 3 for 2 deals in store and online so if you want to purchase more from the Flutter or Studio range there is lots on offer. I think they are both really lovely.
Let me know your thoughts on these collections and which age child you would choose which for, as I said I have boys so its a little harder for me to judge.
