One of most luxurious and most expensive advent calendars is here by Harrods, a mix of skincare, perfume and make up, different luxury brands and the big question is if this advent really is worth the money I mean it cost £250 so there is a lot to think about.As I said it will cost £250 pounds and they have 25 products on it, clearly paying £10 per each, so this is the full list of products:
111 SKIN Celestial Black Diamond Eye Mask, 6ml: 111 Skin is a very nice brand but have tried their face masks before and there is nothing impressive with the results, the retailer price is £12 so not big saving here.
Ex Nihilo Fleur Narcotique Candle, 35g: Again would depend if you like Ex Nihilo fragrances, I’m a bit picky with them, this is a very small candle and would come to the price of £8,75.
After doing the numbers we can say this calendar has a real value of £584,10, so the saving is of £334, if I have to choose the products that actually worth paying for and the ones which are not worth the value drops to £341.
The problem i noticed is too many face creams, too many eye creams, very small sample sizes so won’t be able to say if a cream works or not you will be only available to try the txture and the same feelings of getting a sample from the store counter, I feel like is very unfair to pay for samples that brands should provide to promote their products, I don’t pretend full size products but at least bigger sizes, £250 is way too much money for the amount you geti know it has many expensive brands but from 2 or 6 gr I can’t test well enoug if a product if worth paying for full size in the future.
In case you are interested the calendar would be avilable since the 1rst of October HERE
