Selfridges 25 Days Of Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar // Calendar Countdown

Selfridges 25 Days Of Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar - £210.00

What Do The Brand Say About The Advent Calendar?

The brand say; "The countdown for Christmas truly starts when each day of December is spent layering on a new lipstick or eyeshadow from your Selfridges beauty advent calendar. This year, within each drawer, you’ll find 25 of the top make-up and skincare formulas – and rumour is Mrs Claus has it marked as number one on her wish list. Packaged in an impressive case with an illustration of our London store on the front, it looks just as good displayed on your garland-strung mantlepiece as each treatment feels on your skin.".

How Many Products Are Repeats?

There are 2 repeated products in the advent calendar this year. With the complimentary appointment card also being repeated as a gift in the advent calendar. 

What Is Different To Last Year?

This has a double door opening with products in individual draws. The same structure as last year but the draw sizes have changed to accommodate the newer items. This is something I look out for. When brands use the same structure, are they then finding products to fit the draws each year? Which is one of the reasons repeats happen. Or, do they plan two or three years of releases in one go?

My Thoughts

This is £210.00 with over £800.00 pounds in worth. That's the same price as last year with more worth in the contents. This is one of those crazy savings advents with high end, may only purchase the once or be gifted items. I love this advent calendar. I personally would get use of all the products, which is why I would pay the £210.00 price tag if I had the funds, but I can see that some people may not be as drawn to the contents. Especially for those in their early 20's. One thing in particular that I love is having 12 full-sized products and draws filled with more than one item. For example, instead of taking up two draws with shampoo and conditioner, they're in one draw. Leaving room for another product. Fantastic, it won't be for everyone but it's one of my favourites of the year.

I'd love to know what you think. You can find me on FacebookTwitter, Instagram or Pinterest, use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown or comment below.
