How is it different to last years?

With only 1 repeated product this is the lowest number of repeats since they began releasing Beauty Advent Calendars! This features more of their "higher end" products, which have targeted purposes like revitalising and purifying. So, with that in mind, I'd have a look at the products on their website just to make sure it won't react with any issues you may be experiencing. 
With the same gorgeous vintage design, featuring a very festive Santa on a rocket!, it again comes with products being in individual boxes.

Is it worth the price?

Priced again at £99.00 with £248.50 value claim I was very confused to find my calculations add up to £238.00 minus the headband. I did check this three time and I concluded two scenarios. They are either charging more for certain products that have the exclusive scent(s) picked for Christmas or they are charging £10.50 for a novelty reindeer headband...I remember coming to the same conclusion last year when calculations for this advent didn't add up. 
Nonetheless, you are getting double the price you pay. I wouldn't buy this for someone who isn't a regular Body Shop customer as they may feel they didn't get the value. I would target this more towards 25 years and up because of the targeted skincare products and definitely talk to them beforehand. It may spoil the surprise for them but the £99.00 you put down doesn't then go to waste. 

Are you a fan of The Body Shop? Does this advent appeal to you?

Calendar Countdown may have changed it's schedule but I'd still love to know your opinion. You can find me on FacebookTwitter & Instagram or use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown.
