L’Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar

22nd November 2018

We are getting crazy close to December and if you’re still undecided on which advent calendar to choose and you know you definitely want a beauty calendar, the L’Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar could be ‘the one’. I’ve reviewed the L’Occitane advent calendars for the past two years so I’m excited to be able to do it for the third year in a row as they’re such exquisite calendars with such a great mix of products. For 2018 L’Occitane have two different calendars; the L’Occitane Standard Advent Calendar and the L’Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar which is the one that I own.

The L’Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar is £89 yet the contents are worth £112.50, and if you’re interested the Standard version is £49 and the contents are worth £85. I’ve featured three advent calendars on my blog this year and I’ve seen bloggers review calendars but not actually show the products behind each door which feels very pointless so I have fully unboxed the L’Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar so you can see which products you get behind each door. The design this year is so cute and kitsch, and I’ve never seen an advent calendar design like this before.

Make the countdown to Christmas 2018 exciting with this luxurious beauty advent calendar, containing 24 travel sizes of our most popular premium products. Each drawer opens to reveal a fragrance, a hand cream or skincare containing the secret to youthful skin, all infused with organic ingredients such as shea butter, almond, and cherry blossom. 

This year, our premium Advent Calendar comes in a unique moving design! The two towers rotate a full 360 degrees, revealing distinct designs on all four sides, as you find the numbered drawer you’re searching for. This is definitely our most fun and interactive Advent Calendar yet.


**Spoiler Alert** Going beyond this point will reveal the products inside the L’Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar for 2018. Read on to see what’s inside the twenty four drawers, and the description of each product within the calendar…

In Burkina Faso, women produce shea butter by hand. While one might expect this technique to weaken and damage the skin, in reality it leaves it incredibly soft. L’OCCITANE discovered that the shea butter produced in Burkina Faso using traditional methods is particularly rich in omega 6 and karitene. These molecules have exceptional properties and help to moisturise, nourish and give extra protection to the skin every day.”
