I featured the Revolution Christmas Tree Beauty Advent Calendar here on my blog and I was really disappointed with the price and products, so I thought I’d feature the I Heart Revolution Gingerbread House Advent Calendar too as a comparison. The I Heart Revolution Gingerbread House Advent Calendar is a massive £160 which shocked me for a drugstore advent calendar, especially when the Revolution version was £120. Revolution really have capitalised on the whole advent calendar trend, but I never expected to see a £160 offering, which is currently available from Superdrug.
“Forget the basic advent calendar, the I Heart Revolution Gingerbread House Advent Calendar is the only way to countdown to Christmas this year. Open the doors to find 25 boxes filled with must-have I Heart Revolution goodies.
Filled with full-sized surprises including a full-size chocolate shadow and face palettes. Plus I Heart Revolution’s iconic heart highlighters, scented glosses and super cute accessories. Every day of December will feel like Christmas day!“

I do think this calendar has a nice mix of palettes, lip colours and blush/highlighters with some calendar exclusive shades. The value of the products when checking against products within the main range work out at £140 so the fact Revolution are charging people £160 is again disappointing. Last year there was a big drama with them doing the same with their gift range, and they claimed it was Superdrug’s doing.
However it is the brands that choose product prices so I can’t believe it’s happened again this year. Revolution always reduce their gift range during October so the price will come down but right now it’s on sale for more than the value of the products so I wouldn’t recommend purchasing until it’s discounted. It’s available right here.
