How is it different to last years?

This advent is a collaboration between a few different brands under the L'Oreal parent group. Selfridges had one like this last year and after going through the contents I've found 62.5% of repeated products. This is one of the highest repeat amounts I've come across this year and it is disappointing for those who are a fan of the L'Oreal group. Although the design isn't festive, it is very sparkly and really stands out

Is it worth the price?

This is not worth the price. At £130.00 you are paying £10 more and getting over 50% of the same contents as last year. For people new to the advent you are getting what you pay for and you get some good variety but I honestly would look elsewhere. I my opinion company's like L'Oreal who do collaborative advents have the flexibility to change up the contents, it's disappointing to see they want us to pay more when it feels like they haven't put as much effort in.

What do you think of them repeating so many products? Would you buy this advent?


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...
