I opened the door and saw to my wondrous eyes appeared a package from L’Occitane. Not a bark from a dog, not a meow from a cat that alerted me to the box’s arrival. I sprang down the stairs to open up the box!

I am very excited to be a recipient of the L’Occitane 2016 Holiday Beauty Advent Calendar which is available now! I love L’Occitane products, and the idea of having one mini everyday in December leading up to Christmas is my idea of happiness! The L’occitane Beauty Advent Calendar is no ordinary advent calendar. It is over a foot high and contains 24 L’Occitane minis for $55.00 with over $100 value! It also qualifies for free-shipping!!! I felt like I was holding an oversized book!

I am not peeking at the back because I want to be surprised by the beautiful, irresistible beauty products. I can’t wait for December to arrive when I can open one door a day to receive a mini holiday treat just for me.

I am a sucker for red ribbons during the holiday season. There is something about opening up a package with a red ribbon that makes me happy. The box has a lavender border whose colors flows into the front of the box. So pretty!

I love it! The scene is a beautiful, whimsical shop scene. I love how they made the product on top and packaged it on the bottom in the back room. It reminds me of a small country shop.  It’s a beautiful scene that is rich in detail and can be kept on display throughout December.

The colors are bright and bold with a few holiday decorations. Look at all the presents! It makes me want to open a window. I must resist opening the Advent Calendar!

Scratch that. How about if I open the first decorative window? I can’t wait until December! I need to know now!

A Hand Cream!

I carefully opened the cardboard window and found a hand cream! We are off to a great start. The complete spoilers are listed here. Note that they’re also listed on the L’Occitane site – just ignore the bottom of the page if you want to be surprised!

The Verveine Hand Cream has a slight peppermint scent which has me thinking of peppermint hot chocolate. Tis the season!

Time to tuck away the hand cream. The cardboard is robust enough to handle multiple openings and closings.

Don’t forget to select your free samples when you check out, plus, get one of these free gift sets. The price of this advent calendar makes you automatically eligible for the first gift – use code HOME!

I can resist opening the rest of the Advent Calendar because it automatically qualified for a gift with purchase. I am happy to see a favorite of mine in the bag, the Amande shower oil. It smells divine! I also received a wonderfully scented lavender soap, a mini hand cream for my purse, and two foils of the Amanda Milk Concentrate Body Cream. I am going to bring everything with me when I go to look at T’s number one college choice in a few days!

Complimentary Samples

I also received three complimentary samples – you get to choose yours at checkout.

I also received a complimentary gift wrapping kit which will be used to wrap up a Christmas gift. You need to add this on at checkout, but it’s free. It’s also a great idea for a quick hostess gift – grab a mini out of the chateau door, pop it in the kit, and you’re set.

I cannot wait until December for when I can start opening a little window each day. It adds a bit of Christmas excitement knowing each day is a surprise L’Occitane product! The advent calendar is beautifully illustrated with a light holiday theme allowing it to be enjoyed by all. It’s a wonderful Beauty Advent Calendar from a passionate company that makes quality products. I can’t wait for December to arrive!

    Love, love, love this one. I bought 2 and have been using them every day since they came out!

      Thanks for letting me know! I kept on meaning to post that one and kept forgetting! I was trying to send Anna a picture text and it was not going! We had this silly little Current box advent calendar when I was a kid. It was so cute. Just little folded paper boxes and it was so exciting!

      • Abby

        This reminds of the chocolate ones I used to get as a kid – these are taking me back!

        The Charlotte Tillbury is really nice! But much to expensive – especially since there are so many more coming out soon.

  • Abby

    I just ordered mine and Im super excited.
    I am also on the hunt for other advent calenders, but I’m mostly finding ones in the UK – one’s in partivular is the Body Shop calendar and Yankee Candles.
    I dunno why US doesnt have those here.
    But Im looking forward to the list you’re putting together.

      • Abby

        Sweet Brandy!
        I have searched far and wide – and I wasn’t able to find anything like what you have! Beyond impressed!!

        I just had some questions – I went thru your list and I’m not able to find the specific items, for example the Body Shop box, Pottery Barn, Marks & Spence, Jo Malone, and No7.
        Is it because they aren’t available for sale yet?

        • Brandy

          Hi Abby – all those other ones besides PB haven’t been released yet. The PB ones are the refillable kind where you source your own goodies. In the next couple of days you will be able to come back and click notify on the individual directory pages so when we post about them you’ll know that they have arrived. (I’m super excited about it!)

            I went as far as checking to see if Amazon UK would ship the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar to the USA. It does not qualify for USA shipping.

            I am curious about the Body Shop Calendar. I check the site every day to see if it has been released.

          • Abby

            Thanks again! I will be stalking this site for the rest of the year!!! 🙂

            PA Anna – I did that too!!! I am so obsessed with the Yankee Candle – it’s such a shame that they don’t have it here!

  • Deb

    I loved this sneak peek Anna! The first item looks wonderful and those bonus samples will keep you busy for a while anyways!

    • PA Anna

      Thank You! I can’t wait to be using my bonus samples in a few days 🙂
