Some of you may already know but on Wednesday it was my birthday so I thought today’s blog post would be birthday related. I have always wanted a beauty advent calendar but always find they are so expensive, so this year my parents surprised me by buying the L’Occitane Beauty Advent Calendar for my birthday. I was so excited when I opened this present as my mum knew how much I wanted this advent calendar.
So I wanted to give you my first impressions of the advent calendar, obviously I will only be opening this at christmas. On the back of the advent calendar it lists all the product included so I thought I would give you my first impressions to help any of you who are stuck on whether or not to buy this one.
I am completely obsessed with the illustration on the front of this advent calendar. It’s a beautiful watercolour drawing with a fabulous illustrations, reflecting such a warm and cosy environment, making me want Christmas already.
The inside of this advent calendar is just as cute as the outside. I love the way they have illustrated how the L’Occitane product are made and sold in a cute building. It makes the inside very personal to L’Occitane and it’s such a lovely idea. I really like the way this advent calendar has 24 doors for you to open throughout December and they are all travel size products. Bellow is a list of all the products in this advent calendar so you can get an idea of what to expect.

I think I have only ever tried a hand cream from L’Occitane before, have you tried any others? This looks fab! I really want to get a beauty advent calendar, not sure which yet though!
Yes I have tried most of their body product and love them all. I haven’t tried any of their face skincare range but I know there are a few in the advent calendar, so excited to try them out. There is so much choice this year, its so difficult to choose x
