How are they different to last years?
The £60 and £80 advent calendars both have 7 repeat products from the previous year and there a quite a few repeat products between the 3 calendars this year. The main difference between this years and last years are the new scents released as limited edition for Christmas and the mini's of new products released in 2016. I personally think that by keeping the same design concept with the boxes, they've had to use a lot of repeat products or products of the same size which is cost effective from a business point of view but as a consumer you always look towards something new.

Are they worth the price?
Honestly, no. Each calendar has repeat products from the previous year, with the same design concept and are mainly skincare based. I do love the box concept to the design, you could always keep those to create your own advent the next year, but with the repeats its very samey samey. The majority of The Body Shops products are affordable and they release some amazing sets for Christmas, even though the saving you'd get on an advent calendar is brilliant, the product loot isn't (in my opinion) worth it. 

What do you think of The Body Shop Calendars? Would you purchase one?

I'm not just reviewing skin care and beauty advent calendars in my Calendar Countdown. If there are any you'd like me to review catch me on Twitter or Instagram or use the hashtag #CalendarCountdown.

Thanks for reading!
