How is it different to last years?

Another advent that is new to the market this year. Birchbox are well known for their beauty subscription boxes and they are always well reviewed so seeing this doesn't surprise me. What does surprise me is the lack of a full contents list. It's nice to have a surprise but it's also nice to know what the ratio is going to be purchasing this. They give you a sneak peak as to what brands are included and it's an amazing variety but I couldn't judge this as being more makeup or more skincare based. The design is stunning on this advent! I love the royal blue base for the colour palette and it's just so snowy and festive that it stands out for all the right reasons. 

Is it worth the price?

At £65.00 this is an advent where I am on the fence because of the lack of contents information. Even if all products came in a deluxe sample size you would get your money's worth it's just the question of what are you paying for? Will all makeup items be in dark colours? Will all skincare items come with a certain scent? It's very hard to put your finger on and without watching an unboxing video beforehand (which could make you feel swayed one way or the other) I would say Birchbox need to give more information on an item like an advent calendar for it's consumers so it can be decided whether it's worth purchasing.

Are you someone who reads the full contents list before purchase? Do you think one should be mandatory on all advents?

I am doing another month of #CalendarCountdown, I'd love to know what you think of all the different advents and you can find me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram. Use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown if you have one of these or if you have your own way of counting down to Christmas.

As always, thanks for reading...
