Beautiful sets that will add value for money, bursting of little extras. Usually you just pay for the full size product inside and get rewarded with a bunch of minis. A great way of stocking up.
In this post im going to cover the first of Advent Calendars released – the L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar (€59). I need to warn you, this is a spoiler post! If you don’t want to know, please look away. However, if you want to know what its inside and if its good value, continue reading. To keep one element of surprise, i mixed the little gifts so they don’t match their appropriate doors. I’m good like that.
This years L’Occitane design is really standing off from other years, the french beauty powerhouse has teamed up with the Fashion House CASTELBAJAC Paris. Together they released luxurious, vivid and bright packaging that will get you in the festive spirit. Anyone would be delighted to receive one of these gifts.
What’s Inside the L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar
Come 1st of December, get ready to peel back door number 1. Besides finding a lovely Amande shower oil to moisturise your body, if you read the message on the door it sais “My Commitments”. A lovely way of doing a positive little change in your daily life. Being committing to a random act of kindness, being sustainable or being very particular in avoiding waste that day – its just a very positive way of starting your day.

L’Occitane Supports UNICEF
This year L’Occitane are also working with UNICEF to help raise money to prevent childhood blindness. They have released the Solidarity Candle in their iconic cherry blossom scent and a beautiful tin packaging for the festive season. 100% of the profits from the candle are donated to UNICEF to help the cause.
1 candle sold = 1 year of vitamin A for 5 children
If you are looking for a new candle scent or you are already thinking of stocking filler ideas, I would at least take a sniff of the Solidarity candle! It’s €10/£9 for a 100ml candle.
