As as adult, a chocolate advent calender just doesn't have the same appeal, especially as in recent years retailers have created much more fun ways for grown ups to count down the days until Christmas.
Most notably two of the best inventions being booze and beauty advent calendars.
Each year beauty junkies search high and low for the best one on the market, which is sure to be filled with 25 handy little miniatures of sought after products for a lot less than retail price.
Wondering what the most popular choice of 2018 is? The No7 Beauty Advent Calendar at Boots is definitely going to be high up in the rankings. It hasn't even been released yet and already has a waiting list of over 97,000.
Yes, you read that correctly.
Why has it amassed such a following?
With a range of No7's most popular must-haves behind each of the 25 doors, from skin saviours to miracle working make-up, its easy to see why so many have been keen to get there hands on it.
Not to mention, the retail price of all the beauty products in the calendar come to a whopping £177. Yet, you can snap up the calender for a much more reasonable £42. That's one hell of a beauty bargain.
So, if you're a beauty fan Christmas could come early. Just be sure to set an alarm and be quick off the mark when the advent calendar hits Boots stores and online tomorrow.
