L’Occitane 2017 Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar – FULL UNBOXING

L'Occitane 2017 Luxury Beauty Advent CalendarCan you believe it’s 2018 already? 2017 had it’s ups and downs, but I’m finally feeling like I’m in a good place. My husband started his new job after a long and arduous career change so every month is now quadruple payday month (YAY!).

I lived in pyjamas all December and pulled out my winter boots, my coziest socks, and sat down to open my L’Occitane 2017 Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar every day.

*Note: This post was originally posted as days 1-7 on December 8th 2017, edited on December 15th to include days 8-14, and edited again on January 1st with days 15-24.* You can also check out my 2016 The Body Shop Advent Calendar Unboxing!

2017 L'Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar

L’Occitane 2017 Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar

The packaging of this calendar is fantastic! I love the little ribbon at the top that unties to open the calendar. There are 24 little boxes that pull out to reveal a gift for each day leading up until Christmas. After opening each day I put the box in backwards to reveal part of an image that will make a Christmas tree picture once the calendar has been completely opened.

L'Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar Vervine Eau De Toilette

Day 1: Verveine Eau de Toilette

The gift in each box is wrapped in tissue paper so it feels like I’m unwrapping a gift each day. I was thrilled to see that the first box contained a perfume! This fragrance reminds me of the Bath & Body Works Rainkissed Leaves scent. It smells very fresh and not at all floral. It’s a welcome addition to the (very) small part of my shelf designated for fragrance.

L'Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar Verveine, Divine Oil & Shea Body Wash

Day 2: Ultra Rich Shower Cream

I thought this was hand cream at first and applied it all over my hands. The joke was on me because this is a shower cream! I used it correctly later that day. The scent is soapy, it doesn’t smell like anything else. I found that it stripped my skin more than the The Body Shop shower creams so I was mildly disappointed in this product. It will make a good addition to my travel bag.

Day 3: Immortelle Divine Youth Oil

I sampled a foil of this oil from Sephora once, but we all know how hard it is to get a feel for a product from a foil sample. This face oil retails for $114USD for 1oz. Crazy! I’m curious if I’ll notice a difference in my skin from using this. I’ve used it once and I like that it doesn’t have that typical “oil” smell that a lot of facial oils have.

L'Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar - Arlésienne Eau de Toilette

Day 4: Arlésienne Eau de Toilette

More fragrance!! I do have a tiny complaint though, neither this bottle nor the Verviene fragrance has a spritzer on it. The cap unscrews and I have to dab the bottle on my skin. How hard would it be to put a little spritzer in the bottle!? Arlésienne eau de toilette smells strongly of rose, but it also contains notes of violet, saffron, bergamot, and an array of other fragrance layers.

L'Occitane Luxury Beauty Advent Calendar Almond Hand Cream and Shea Cleansing Oil

Day 5: Almond Delicious Hands Hand Cream

I find the title of this product a little weird, Delicious Hands, what? It smells great though! L’occitane hand creams are great quality, this cream smells like almonds and felt great on my skin. This is the perfect purse size for me.

Day 6: Shea Cleansing Oil

I’m excited to try this! I can’t recall that I have ever used a cleansing oil. It’s supposed to remove even the most waterproof makeup so I’m planning on putting that to the test.

L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream

Day 7: Immortelle Precious Cream

I’ve tried the Immortelle Divine cream but not the precious cream. This is supposed to minimize visible wrinkles and firm the skin. I’m always up to try anti-aging products! I don’t have a wrinkly face (yet) but I am noticing more fine lines when I’m sleep deprived. I don’t know that I’ll see any results because the pot I received is quite small.

    I think if I were to try out any advent calendars, L’Occitane would be it! Their products feel so luxurious, but the calendar is a pretty reasonable price considering.
    Have fun testing out all of these products!

      The price to buy everything full sized is insane, I liked that I could try things out without having to buy the full product. There is also a less expensive calendar than this one that retailed for around $70.
      Thanks girl!

    I’ve been curious to try the L’Occitant Shea Cleansing Oil for ages.
    I hope you’ll enjoy everything you received in the calendar!

      It’s good for this dry weather right now! It doesn’t remove all my makeup if I’m wearing mascara & eyeliner but it does a good job of everything else.
      Thanks! Happy new year Stashy!

    I had a calendar from them a couple of years ago and loved essentially all of the products! Hope you have a wonderful 2018 😊

    • January 2, 2018 / 1:22 pm

      It’s a great way to sample lots of different products! These will last me a long time 😊 Glad you love it too!

    This looks like such a fun advent calendar! How much did it cost?

    • January 2, 2018 / 1:20 pm

      I think it was around $115-125? It was a gift from my Mom so I tried not to worry about price too much 😳 They have another version that retailed for $75Cad!

      • January 2, 2018 / 2:42 pm

        Hahah wow! Well it is l’occitane so that’s not exactly a cheap brand. So understandable!

        • January 4, 2018 / 11:04 am

          Haha yeah, I probably wouldn’t have splurged that much on myself but I enjoyed opening this one ☺

    Ah I’m so kicking myself for not getting an advent calendar in time this year. Next year I will buy TWO to make up for it. This looks great. xo J

    • December 16, 2017 / 1:54 pm

      haha! I’ve been looking forward to opening one for months, there are so many to choose from!

      • December 17, 2017 / 1:17 pm

        Next year I will research them way more in advance!!

    Advent calendars are so fun! I’ve only their L’occitane’s hand creams which I really like. I’m definitely curious to try more! I hate when perfume samples don’t have a spritzer too. I don’t like having to dab them on myself lol.

    • December 9, 2017 / 4:53 pm

      They are, your Look fantastic calendar looks amazing! It just baffles me, I don’t know why they don’t have a spritzer :S I’ll probably spill it everywhere. Both bottles smell nice though!

  7. December 8, 2017 / 4:17 pm

    I recently got a couple of hand creams from L’Occitane and have been loving them! This advent calendar looks fun!!

    • December 9, 2017 / 11:35 pm

      I’m glad you like them too! This calendar has been so much fun to open ☺
