How Many Products Are Repeats?

There are 7 repeated products in the advent calendar this year. This year, Origins has gone from a 12-day to 24-day advent, so it is a pleasant surprise that there weren't 12 repeated products.

What Is Different To Last Year?

I really miss the London buses. Last year, Origins decided to encase each product in a box shaped like a London bus. This year, the brand has gone for a traditional book opening with products behind perforated doors. I will say, I love forest green, so the colour palette for this is one of my favourites.

My Thoughts

Because this has gone from a 12-day to 24-day advent, naturally, the price has increased. At £99.00 with a £164.00 worth, it is still surprising me. With last year's £60.00 price tag, I was expecting it to be around the £120.00 - £150.00 mark. For me, even with a moderate number of repeated products and no buses, this advent calendar is so worth the money. Origins is a brand that has built its customer base through hard work in formulation and, with this advent having a great mix of product types and formulas, it is, in my opinion, one of the best on the market this year. If you have already tried Origins, and it worked well for your skin, this is going to give you a lot more to try. If you have never tried Origins before and this has enticed you, I would recommend their gifting range first and maybe treat yourself to the calendar next year if the products work for you. Here's to hoping the number of repeats will decrease next year.
