Balmain 10 Day Advent Calendar // Calendar Countdown

The Balmain Advent Calendar is an unusual calendar. Not because of its contents but because it is only 10 days long. Priced at £150.00 this contains hair car products and tools.

How is it different to last years?

This is the second year Balmain have brought out their unusual 10 day advent. Sporting a very similar design to last year with a more minimal and sophisticated edge this features 3 repeated products. 
I am still confused as to why they haven't brought out a 12 day calendar or even a 24 day one with mini's. I feel like the 10 days is quirky and unusual but in my opinion, it's not a unique selling point, if anything it makes me compare against other brands where I may get more for my money.

Is it worth the price?

Increased by £10 to £150.00 this works out to be £15.00 an item. I still don't think this is overall worth the money. Balmain products are gorgeous but the mix of travel, deluxe and full sized items paired with the silver accessories makes me question where the consumer gets the value from this advent. 

What do you think of a 10 day advent? Would this one by Balmain interest 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. 

As always, thanks for reading...
