Holiday 2016 Gift Guide: Best 10 Beauty Advent Calendars That Ship Worldwide

When I was growing up, my Dad and Gramps, both of whom worked in shipping, used to bring home chocolate Advent Calendars, with enough sweets to last until March. As an adult, I am addicted to Beauty Advent Calendars. See the best selections from last year here.
Beauty Advent Calendars seem to be more of a UK-centric thing, though brands in the US and elsewhere are fast catching on. So much so that the LookFantastic Beauty Secret Vol 2 Advent Calendar for 2016 has sold out while on pre-order - a good 24 hours before the release date. See the spoilers here.
With 12-25 beauty products that you can open each day of the Advent (or for the 12 Days of Christmas), what is not to love? Think of it as a best-of-the-year surprise beauty box. I've been showing you individual calendars over the last couple of weeks; here is the round up of the best ones currently available - they all ship worldwide.

Scroll down for the ultimate list of the best 10 Beauty Advent Calendars for Holiday 2016.
