How is it different to last years?

I believe Cath Kidston had an advent calendar last year but I cannot find any of the contents to compare whether or not you would receive repeats. From a first time buyers perspective you'll see  this contains a lot of hand creams. It's very much a calendar where you get the same products in multiple scents. Straight away you can tell this is a Cath Kidston product from the design and yet I love the simple Christmas theme to it.

Is it worth the price?

Cath Kidston doesn't sell all of the beauty products this includes separately but gathering an idea of the ml amount from gift sets I would say you are just paying the £40 that this is retailed at. I've always said advent calendars are a great way to try new products and brands as you get more products and variety then what you pay. This doesn't fall into that category so in my opinion it doesn't make it worth the money as an advent calendar. Now alternatively you could buy this and repackage the products into stockings, gift sets or even make up our own set in a cellophane bag with a candy cane or chocolate. You could get little gifts for 5 - 6 people from this which makes it more of a bargain for the £40 price point.

Do you think an advent calendar should have this many hand creams? Do you think Cath Kidston should go down a different route next year?

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...
