Target's Beauty Advent Calendar Is An Amazing Buy

Skincare and beauty fanatics, rejoice: You can make counting down towards Christmas more exciting this year with Target's 12 Days Of Beauty Advent calendar. Remember Advent calendars of the past? When you were a kid, you'd pop open the little tabs to get stale pieces of chocolate. It was cool, but this time around you can indulge your beauty sweet tooth with a bevvy of makeup products and tools waiting for you behind the marked doors.

Target's 12 Days of Beauty Faves Advent offers nearly two weeks of beauty goodies for the incredible price of $25. With something that affordable, you'd think you'd be receiving mostly itty-bitty sample sizes, but Target came through and offered a wealth of goodness in the mystery box. From bath soaks to makeup brushes, this calendar has you covered.

According to Target, the box is a 65 dollar value and it'll do more than quench your present thirst this season. "The 12 Days of Beauty Faves Calendar helps you shimmer and shine brighter than holiday lights this season. Open a new door each day to find everything you need to create the ultimate holiday party look," says the calendar's product listing.

According to beauty blog Nouveau Cheap, the box offers both sample sizes and full sized items. Among the sample sizes, you receive a Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic, a Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, Nexxus Volume Medium Hold Comb Thru Finishing Mist, Mayfair Body Crème in Sea Lily Jasmine, Acure Day Cream, Pacifica Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash, and Me! Bath Gotta Have It Pomegranate Mini Bath Ice Cream, in the form of two mini bath soaks.

In case you're not familiar with those products, the Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic is an oil-free, alcohol-free, gentle toner that's heavy in aloe vera to help moisturize your skin as it cleans it. The Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is a lightweight, gel-textured mask that hydrates your skin as you sleep, while the Nexxus Volume Medium Finishing Mist is a hairspray that gives you natural-looking control that offers softness, body, and bounce.

Mayfair Body Crème in Sea Lily Jasmine is a heavy body lotion that drenches your skin in moisture with the help of shea butter, cocoa seed butter, and sunflower oil, while Acure Day Cream is an anti-aging face lotion that firms skin and evens out tone. Lastly, the Pacifica Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash is a deep cleanser that washes away dirt and makeup, and the Me! Bath Gotta Have It Bath Ice Cream is a delicious mix of pomegranate, cranberry, apple, and peach scents.

Accompanying those seven sample size products are five full sized products, which are the EcoTools Kabuki Brush, a Sinful Colors Nail Polish, a NYX Xtreme Lip Cream, an Umberto Beverly Hills Lifting Powder, and a Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin.

The EcoTools Kabuki Brush is a high quality brush that offers an even cover, and retails for 10 dollars. The Sinful Colors nail polish comes in a deep red that would retail for a little over two dollars, while the NYX Xtreme Lip Cream is a velvety liquid lipstick that sells for six dollars. The Umberto Beverly Hills Lifting Powder helps you revive and boost hairstyles throughout the day and goes for around 11 dollars, while Burt’s Bees Lip Balm goes for three. When it's all broken down, this deal is pretty amazing.

While there's still some time left until December, it'd be best to snatch these up while they're around — there's no guarantee how long something this cheap and amazing will stick around!
