 How Many Products Are Repeats?

There are 4 repeated products in the advent calendar this year. That's a very low number for ELLE and when brands do repeat a couple of items I always ask myself why those few were chosen. One item is a beauty tool and the other three are cult / best selling items. 

What Is Different To Last Year?

I am loving the Valentino pink. It's stunning, and so different from previous designs and colour schemes. They have kept the same structure, where products are in individual boxes in a drawer, with a double door opening.

My Thoughts

Priced at £175.00, it has a £755.00 worth. The RRP has increased by £26.00 this year but the worth by £105.00. It is 100% great value for money. I like the concept of magazine advent calendars as they are the ones doing beauty edits, looking at the popularity of products, seeing which ones get the best reviews and the ones that don't. With the price being so high, I again, as always, say to read through the contents to make sure you get full use of the items, but if you are new to beauty and skincare, or you want to just take a chance, this would be the advent calendar to do that. I especially love the free tracked delivery and the one-day window with three different mascaras. 


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