If you’re going to face heavy competition, go big or go home. This is Elemis’s newest advent and they’ve gone HUGE! It’s basically the most awesome Elemis set disguised as an advent and has a value of £319, but it’s very pricey at £150. I think you have to really like the Elemis brand or really want to discover it.
I can’t say I’m not impressed with it because I really am. Each product is in an individual box (I’m praying that they’re recyclable – I’m sure they are) and heaven help you if you drop it because they’re arranged like a jigsaw. I can’t think you’d ever get them back in the right places if the worst happened!
In terms of contents, it has everything from face masks and micellar water to body creams and oils (Frangipani Monoi – my favourite) with the grand gesture saved for the 24th with a full sized jar of Pro Collagen Marine Cream (apparently one of these is sold every 9 seconds around the world) which has a retail value of £82. So I guess after that the rest of it doesn’t seem so expensive.
My sister is a massive Elemis fan – she can’t use a lot of creams but has been completely fine with all Elemis products so I think I know where this is heading! My daughter, having never shown the slightest bit of interest in an advent calendar (even when we had the ‘proper’ ones when they were little) wants the forthcoming Asda Cheese Advent!
Anyway, something like this is a good one for those hard to buy for November and December birthdays I think, regardless of advent. I’m a January birthday and I’d rather have this as an early gift than yet another woolly hat. You can find it HERE.
I would absolutely advise ordering this on-line – it is SO heavy you wouldn’t want to be carrying it.
