This weekend I stepped right into the Christmas spirit as I set about the task of photographing the beautiful L’Occitane Classic Beauty Advent Calendar*. Throughout the last few years Beauty Advent Calendars have become so popular, and they continue to get better and better each year with more and more brands offering their own take on the tradition.
This year I was kindly given the opportunity to share with you the L’Occitane Classic Beauty Advent Calender* and, to top it off, I am also able to give one away to one of you as a Christmas giveaway. The Classic Beauty Advent Calendar is one of two from L’Occitane this year, so, depending on your budget or indeed preferences you have two options to choose from. The classic calendar retails at £49 and is worth £87.00 which I think is pretty good if I’m honest, therefore, if you are curious to see what is behind each door this year (spoiler alert), then carry on reading below.
The Classic Beauty Advent Calendar is presented so beautifully and features the stunning illustrations by French artist Kanako. The products inside have been carefully selected in order to fill the calendar with some of the brands most loved products behind the 24 doors; that’s 24 little mini treats right before Christmas Day and also the perfect way to be introduced to the brand if you haven’t tried L’Occitane before. I will admit to being quite new to the brand myself as I have tried very little from them in the past, although, funnily enough I do have a product from them coming up in my latest empties post. That being said, I cannot wait to try these miniatures out in order to become more familiar with what the brand has to offer.
• 35ml Cherry Blossom Shower Gel
• 10ml Shea Butter Hand Cream
• 50g Almond Delicious Soap
• 30ml Verbena Body Lotion
• 10ml Pivoine Flora Hand Cream
• 35ml Repairing Conditioner
• 30ml Ultra Rich Body Lotion
• 5ml Shea Light Comforting Cream
• 35ml Repairing Shampoo
• 25g Verbena Soap with leaves
There are some awesome looking products within the calendar, some of which I have heard of and know that they are supposed to be really nice. The first ten doors contain the above miniatures, of which I am most excited to try the Ultra Rich Body Lotion and the Shea Light Comforting Cream. Of course like most people I have tried and loved the hand creams from L’Occitane. They are somewhat of a handbag staple so I am delighted to have a new one to pop into my bag.
• 30ml Ultra Rich Shower Cream
• 10ml Almond Delicious Hands
• 35g Revitalising Sugar Bath Cube
• 30ml Citrus Verbena Shower Gel
• 3ml Shea Butter Lip Balm
• 50g Arlésienne Perfumed Soap
• 35ml Relaxing Shower Gel
• 20ml Almond Milk Concentrate
• 25g Shea Milk Extra-Gentle Soap
• 35ml Cherry Blossom Shimmering Lotion
• 35ml Almond Shower Oil
• 10ml Shea Butter Foot Cream
• 10ml Verbena Cooling Hand Cream
• 7.5ml Arlésienne Eau de Toilette
Again, there is so much to try here! The last fourteen doors contain an array of products from the different ranges that L’Occitane have to offer. I have already started to use the Lip Balm, in fact this mini size is ideal for me as I never, ever make it to the end of a lip balm.
