How Many Products Are Repeats?

Last year, Clarins released a brand new advent called 12 Day Skin Essentials. This is the same advent but with a new name, 12 Day Icons. With 9 repeated products in the advent calendar this year, I'm wondering why the name change for the calendar?

What Is Different To Last Year?

This is the same colour scheme and style as the 12 Day Beauty advent calendar the brand has also released this year. I, again, miss the festive print, but I am very confused as to why the brand has two different advent calendars and yet make them look the same. 

My Thoughts

Also increasing to £75.00, this advent calendar has a £149.00 worth, £10.00 more than the 12 day beauty calendar. I'm really on the fence about this advent calendar. The high number of repeats and the same colour and structure as the beauty calendar makes me wonder why this calendar was put together for release. Both advent's have skincare and a couple of makeup items, both have the same full sized lip comfort oil and 5 other products. I'm just very confused. I question if this advent calendar was needed? I still think Clarins should separate and have one with skincare items and one with makeup items.
