How is it different to last years

Clinique have decided to go with products in individual boxes, a popular choice for beauty advent calendars. I've said before that I understand the appeal but I feel like this can become a massive game of Jenga when pulling out odd boxes. The design is very on brand, striking and stands out well amongst their gifting range.  
Disappointingly, this is another year where the advent has such a high number of repeated products....just look at what's highlighted above. 

Is it worth the price?

Increasing the price for you to get 72% the same as last year isn't very appealing. For £85.00 this is not worth the money. Like I said last year, a 12 day advent with just their newest products would be beneficial for those who love Clinique. The consumer would hopefully get their money's worth and the brand would have an alternate product to boost repeat business. 

Are you disappointed to see so many repeated products? Would you buy this advent?

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...
