Gone are the days when Advent calendars were filled exclusively with chocolate. Large brands such as Nivea now offer a colorful potpourri of selected products at Christmas time. We have opened the 24 doors.
The year is 1905, when Nivea is registered in the German Patent and Trademark Office. Just six years later, the well-known cream in can format is already available in numerous drugstores – and can still be found there today. The range now includes a wide range of different care products for women, men and children. Whether cosmetics, hair care, shower gel, body lotion, hand cream, deodorant, soap or facial cleanser: Nivea tries to meet all the needs of daily personal hygiene. But does this also apply to the Advent calendar?
Spoiler alert: All the products that are hidden behind the 24 doors are listed below.

With a price of just over 50 euros it is in the higher priced segment. The question here is what the person receiving the gift gets in return – and whether the value of the goods is justified. To find out, he… star Christmas was brought forward and all 24 doors opened one after the other. At least 13 care products in their original size, numerous travel sizes with slightly less content and various beauty accessories were revealed: such as a glass file, a hair clip, a bracelet and a scrunchie. On top of that there is an original Nivea pocket mirror.

Can the packaging and design convince?
Even though the Nivea Advent calendar was delivered shrink-wrapped in a plastic cover, it must be acknowledged that the entire packaging is made of cardboard. Except for the care products it contains, plastic has been largely avoided, so that the calendar can be safely disposed of in paper waste after Christmas. A plus point in the area of sustainability.
The design, on the other hand, comes with a Christmas-appropriate decor and looks very high-quality. The 24 doors are spread over both sides of the cardboard box, so the calendar is painted on all sides. The weight is estimated at just under two kilograms, so that the gift can be sent easily and accepted at the door by anyone.
Conclusion: moments of pampering to give away
All in all, there is nothing wrong with the Advent calendar – provided, of course, that the person receiving the gift likes Nivea products and enjoys using them. Because even if the contents contain a balanced mix of care and cleaning, the 24 surprises all come from the same company. The small travel sizes are particularly practical, as they fit into any toiletry bag and are therefore ideal for on the go. The sustainable packaging is also positive, as is the high-quality design.
Conclusion: For 51 euros, the Advent calendar is a perfect gift for the Christmas season for anyone who would be happy to receive care products from Nivea.
