It’s almost December which means it’s almost beauty advent calendar season! I found the L’Occitane was the best one in terms of quality of products and cost. If you’re new to beauty advent calendars, or if you’re still looking for the perfect one check out this lil review I’ve done.
What is it?
The beauty advent calendar offered by L’Occitane that includes a wide array of sample sizes from all areas of beauty that they offer – hair are, skincare, shower gels, soaps, creams, etc. It offers samples from all the different collections and scents that they offer and is perfect if you’re looking to check out L’Occitane’s products without wanting to spend the big $$$ on their full-sized products without being sure of it. Also, how cute is the packaging?
The L’Occitane beauty advent calendar is $59.00 CAD, and claims to be of $117 CAD value. It comes with 24 days worth of generously sized samples. This year, a lot of beauty advent calendars have opted for a ’12 days of Christmas’ style calendar instead of an advent calendar. In this case they only have 12 products rather than 24, and they’re generally around the same cost as the 24 day advent calendars. The 12 days option has the opportunity to offer 12 full sized products rather than 24 samples for around the same price -in which case I would totally be interested. However, I have noticed that a lot of the 12 day beauty calendars still only have small sample sizes of products, similar to those offered by L’Occitane, and are just as expensive. When it comes to value, I definitely think that L’Occitane is your best bet. As a poor student who doesn’t have the money to be spending on the luxury advent calendars that seem to be the only options this year, the L’Occitane beauty advent calendar is a dream come true. LOVE! IT!
Where Can You Get It?
The calendar is now sold out on the L’Occitane website, but you can still purchase it for the same price from Hudson’s Bay here. Add me on snapchat (arcticsabrina) for daily updates and unveiling of the products in the calendar!
