L'Occitane Classic Advent Calendar

When it comes to Advent Calendars for Christmas, without question L'Occitane have always got a little gem of an offering up their sleeve. This year there is not one but two offerings to be had and honestly, they are both so beautiful, it is hard not to choose a favourite.

Illustrating this year’s Classic Beauty Advent Calendar for L'Occitane is French fashion house Castelbajac Paris. It is said that when L’Occitane’s ethical and sustainable commitments meet the bright, bold and colourful world of Castelbajac, the result is a happy and poetic expression, beautifully translated in this calendar.

Bright as it is bold, hidden behind every one of the 24 doors on this advent calendar is a bestselling product from L’Occitane and it is made up of a mixture of fragrance, skincare, body and hair care. Opening up as though it is a hamper, this is what you will find inside - word of warning, this post will detail each product that you will find behind the doors.

Inside the Calendar you will find:
  • Almond Shower Oil, 35ml  - This is my absolute favourite product from L'Occitane and the mister and I go through so many refills of this every single year. It smells amazing and is perfect for moisturising and nourishing the skin.
  • Shea Butter Shower Cream, 30ml - Another incredibly moisturising shower product from L'Occitane and again if you like Shea Butter products, then this is worth trying.
  • Verbena Body Lotion, 30ml - This is a zingy scented body lotion which leaves the skin lightly scented with the fragrance whilst being soft and smooth.
  • Verbena Leaf Soap, 25g - As with the Body Lotion, this soap is delightfully zingy and creates a beautifully scented lather.
  • Shea Butter Body Lotion, 30ml - Rich in Shea Butter, this body lotion is amazing if your skin needs some TLC and it also smells just heavenly too.
  • Cherry Blossom Shower Gel, 35ml - As a foaming bath, this gel transforms into a creamy, abundant mousse when it comes into contact with water and in doing so, there is a delicate Cherry Blossom scent that is released.
  • Citrus Verbena Shower Gel, 30ml - If you need a sharp wake up call in the morning then this is the shower gel for you. It is Zingy but fresh scented.
  • Shea Butter Hand Cream, 10ml - One of my favourite L'Occitane hand creams and my go to when my hands are really dry and chapped. It is packed full of Shea Butter which is deeply nourishing and moisturising.
  • Shea Butter Foot Cream, 10ml - As with the hand cream, this foot cream is an amazing treatment for the feet and if my feet need a little extra TLC, I slather it on, put some socks and allow the cream to work its magic.
  • Peony Hand Cream, 10ml - If you love the scent of Peonies, then this is the hand cream for you because it smells as fresh as a bunch of freshly picked flowers and is delightful for the hands.
  • Aromachologie Shampoo, 35ml and Aromachologie Conditioner, 35ml. This range is silicone free and both the shampoo and conditioner work together to help repair, strengthen and protect dry and damaged hair. Using oat amino acid to repair, restructure and improve the hair fibre condition, alongside a patented anti-breakage complex of five essential oils (angelica, ylang-ylang, sweet orange, lavender and geranium) with provitamin B5, and sunflower oil, which works to protect and give softness and suppleness to the hair.
  • Almond Delicious Hands, 10ml - My second favourite hand cream from L'Occitane is from the Almond Range.  It smells just absolutely incredible and I love that the scent lingers for absolute ages on the skin.
  • Verbena Hand Cream, 10ml - In my view, you can never have too many of these hand creams because they fit perfectly into your handbag.  The Verbena Hand Cream is again as zingy as the rest of the collection and does an incredible job at keeping my hands soft and smooth.
  • Arlesienne Soap, 50g - This Soap is subtly perfumed with the floral and captivating bouquet of rose, violet and saffron and lathers to create a beautiful fresh floral scent.
  • Arlesienne Eau De Toilette, 7ml - If you like your floral scents, then without question this is a scent for you. With top notes of Saffron and Bergamot, it opens with a musky floral burst before the heart notes of Rose and Violet bring to life the fresh floral scent.  The base notes of Ambrox and White Musk give a smooth creaminess to the scent without drowning out the floral notes.
  • Almond Soap, 50g - The only bar of soap I ever have in my bathroom is this one.  It smells just like the shower oil but in solid form and I just absolutely love it.
  • Almond Milk Concentrate, 20ml - The only body lotion I have repurchased more than once and actually finished.  It is smooth, it cocoons the skin and leaves the most incredible lingering scent.
  • Shea Butter Lip Balm, 3ml - You can never have too many Lip Balms and this is one that moisturises as much as it does nourish and is perfect for these colder days that are creeping in.
  • Aromachologie Bath cube, 33g - This is a product I have never tried before and I am looking forward to dropping it into the bath to give it a try.
  • Cherry Blossom Body Lotion, 35ml - Taking the scent of the shower gel and turning it into a body lotion, the scent is just beautiful and lightly scents the skin of fresh cherry blossom.
  • Aromachologie Shower Gel, 35ml - If you want a shower gel that is designed to relax, then this is the one for you. It is enriched with a foaming base containing lavender, bergamot, mandarin, sweet orange and geranium essential oils.
  • Shea Light Cream, 5ml - This is without question, one of my favourite L'Occitane creams. The texture is so light and it has an SPF20. Offering a triple action to smooth and firm the skin, while preventing damage caused by the sun.
  • Shea Butter Milk Soap, 25g - One of the gentlest soaps I have ever used and one that smells just divine. It is as rich as it is smooth and above all else, it is so moisturising.

I think L'Occitane have taken some amazing products to create this calendar and even for me, someone who is well acquainted with the brand, it is exciting to see what is behind each door.
