My first thought when I saw these in-store today was ‘too soon!’ My second thought was ‘I must get one this year too!’
I bought the luxury calendar last year and was thrilled with it. I used a 20% discount available at the time, plus a points voucher, so it worked out cheaper. Even at full price, the expensive calendar is outstanding value. Everything is full size and there was an enormous selection of goodies. I used most of it myself but the things that did not suit me (products for oily skin, nail products, eye liner etc) I gave to friends and family, who were delighted.
You cannot choose what is in the calendar but a good tip is – if you don’t mind not having a total surprise behind each door every day – looking at the contents of the different calendars on YouTube reveal videos. That way you can decide which one suits you best. I know it takes the surprise out of it but it is still nice to open the little boxes.
