How Many Products Are Repeats?

There are 5 repeated products in the advent calendar this year. In 2020, the number of repeats was 12, in 2021 it was 7 and now we have 5 this year. I like the direction this is going in.

What Is Different To Last Year?

Changing to a single door opening, the advent is still structured with products in individual drawers. The colour scheme is similar, keeping it on brand with the red but pairing it with a striking hot pink. There is no pattern included this year, opting to go for a 'block colour' look. I do miss that festive patterned flare.

My Thoughts

This has increased by £10.00 to £75.00, but comes with a £139.00 worth. Looking through the contents list, having 2 full-sized products, one being the double serum, is where the extra cost on the RRP is. With the number of repeated items being lowered, I can see customers who purchased the 12 day beauty calendar last year may not mind them and want to repurchase it. However, with very similar items in the brand's icons advent calendar, which has also been released this year, there isn't as much choice in the calendars as is in their Christmas Boutique. This is one of those advent calendars to sit and think about.
