L’Occitane En Provence 2015 Advent Calendar

Hello everyone! So excited to be bringing you my first Christmas post of the year! 🙂 Beauty advent calendars make really great gifts because they let you try a little bit of everything from a brand without committing to one big purchase. My sister and I actually found this one while shopping for our mom. We end up getting her something from L’Occitane every year because they have such gorgeous products and many of their holiday gift sets are very well priced.

This really is a gorgeous gift, it’s full of 17 best selling products as well as 7 gift treats. I was very impressed to see that every product is a nice travel size instead of being a one use sample. Not to mention the lovely packaging. It’s a gorgeous wintery scene and each product comes out of a shop window. The whole gift comes in at $50–which is about $3 per product. The gift contains:

• 35ml Almond Shower Oil
• 10ml Almond Delicious Hands
• 5ml Pivoine Flora Eau de Toilette
• 10ml Delightful Rose Hand Cream
• Nail File
• Set of 5 gift tags
• 50g Jasmin & Bergamote Soap
• 10ml Shea Butter Hand Cream
• Star-shaped Pastry Cutter
• 50g Milk Extra Gentle-Soap
• 10ml Pivoine Flora Hand Cream
• Set of 10 stickers
• 10ml Ultra Rich Face Cream
• 30ml Ultra Rich Body Lotion
• Set of Place Cards
• 35ml Repairing Shampoo
• 35ml Repairing Conditioner
• Bow Tree Hanging Decoration
• 30ml Verbena Shower Gel
• 30ml Verbena Body Lotion
• 10ml Cherry Blossom Hand Cream
• 3ml Moisturising Lip Balm
• 10ml Shea Butter Foot Cream
Sachet of Stars.

The only downside that I see are the items that are not beauty products. As I mentioned above, there are 7 ‘gift treats’ on the list as well. Now this is a trend with all beauty advent calendars that I’ve seen. They include little holiday themed items to keep the price of the gift reasonable. Keep in mind that the ones in this gift are actually quite cute but there are some advent calendars that contain paper clips and mini pencils as gifts…But when you consider all the great products you’re getting for just $3 each it starts to make sense. (Think of how much you’d be paying to get 25 products!)

All in all this makes such a lovely gift and I can’t wait to give it to my mom! If you do plan on getting it make sure you act fast these guys sell out quickly! Let me know if you are planning on getting this advent calendar for someone this year or if there are any other Christmas posts you’d like to see. Have an awesome rest of the weekend!
