The Calendar of Dreams by L’Occitane is here to deliver our fave L’Occitane beauty treats every day in December. This luxury calendar is one of two by L’Occitane this Christmas and is the perfect calendar for L’Occitane’s biggest fans… or someone who wants the chance to try the brand out before buying full sized products.
The design of the Advent Calendar is unique in that the calendar splits into two towers which rotate to reveal the hidden drawers (it took me a while to work it out!) – very different to other beauty advent calendars out there!
The L’Occitane Calendar of Dreams is the more luxurious of their two calendars and is heavily focused on skincare, bringing us a few hand creams, lotions, and even perfume. The Calendar is worth £98.50 but is currently on sale for only £89 so there’s a little saving to be made there. At that price point it would also make a lovely Christmas gift for a L’Occitane fan, so why not treat someone this Christmas, to a luxury skincare treat every day!
Each drawer also has a little tip written on the side to help take care of the planet – from reusing water bottles to making new items out of your empty skincare packaging, every one of these helps!
So let’s take a look at what’s inside the Calendar of Dreams:
1. Immortelle Essential Water Mist 30ml
First up is the Essential Water Mist. This product is perfect for refreshing the face when it’s a little hot or when the skin feels like it needs a little more hydration. With winter coming up, the skin can get a little dryer, especially with indoor heating so this is a great product to keep in your bag. It also keeps makeup looking fresh!
2. Almond Milk Concentrate 20ml
The Almond Milk Concentrate is an all over body moisturiser – it smells incredible! The consistency is fairly thin so you don’t feel like you’re applying a thick moisturiser, but the skin feels just as soft. This is the perfect size to try out before you buy.
3. Immortelle Divine Foaming Cleansing Cream 14ml
Next is a product for the face and it’s the Foaming Cleansing Cream. Again it’s a really great size to try the product out fully before purchasing – this size will definitely last a couple of weeks if used every day! The Cleansing Cream removes all impurities from the skin without drying it, leaving is cleansed and fresh.
4. Shea Butter Dry Skin Foot Cream 10ml
This is definitely a product I need to try in the winter! The Dry Skin Foot Cream contains shea butter to keep your heels soft and hydrated.
5. Immortelle Precious Cream 5ml
The L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream is a cream you need to try! It’s an everyday moisturiser which combats early signs of ageing. The skin feels so soft after using it and it’s super rich! This size will probably give you a few uses to try it out before you realise you definitely need the full size version of this in your life!
6. Shea Butter Comforting Eye Patches
Eye patches are a fab pick me up in the winter for the eye area so I’m super excited to tell you that these Comforting Eye Patches are in the calendar! Packed with shea butter these will leave your eye area hydrated and refreshed. If you want to feel even more refreshed, pop the eye patches in the fridge for 5-10 minutes before application.
7. Shea Intensive Hand Balm 10ml
L’occitane is well known for it’s incredible hand creams and this is definitely one of them! Another product packed with shea butter to make sure your hands are soft, hydrated and protected from the winter air. This size is also perfect for throwing in your handbag and taking out and about.
8. Shea Milk Extra Gentle Soap
Firstly – how beautiful is the packaging on this soap? The Shea Milk Soap not only cleanses the skin but also re-balances the pH and moisture levels. The soap smells super fresh and is gentle on the skin making it suitable for all skin types.
9. Almond Shower Oil 35ml
The Amande Shower Oil is probably a little different than your usual shower gel – you’d probably expect it to leave your skin greasy? Nope. This shower oil absorbs into the skin and works to cleanse and hydrate. Another travel sized product too which is perfect for taking on an overnight trip.
10. Shea Light Comforting Cream 5ml
The Light Comforting Cream is a great cream for sensitive skin or any areas of the face which need a little more hydration and soothing. Containing shea butter the comforting cream is really gentle on the skin and isn’t too perfumed.
11. Almond Delicious Hand Cream 10ml
Another one of L’Occitane’s best selling hand creams – the Amande Delicious Hand Cream is the perfect size to take with you on the go. It’s faintly scented with the scent of almond tree flowers so your hands will smell super fresh!
12. Repairing Conditioner 35ml
Next up is another hair product for those with damaged or brittle hair. The Repairing Conditioner contains 5 essential oils including sunflower oil and works to protect hair from any further damage.
The Repairing Conditioner can be found here.
13. Aqua Reotier Ultra Thirst Quenching Gel 5ml
The Aqua Reotier Ultra Thirst Quenching Cream is a must have product for winter – this daily face cream hydrates and nourishes the skin. Great for dry skin or if you want to make sure your skin is hydrated in the colder weather.
14. Shea Shower Oil 35ml
Another shower oil but this time the Shea Shower oil – enriched with Shea oils (of course) it works to cleanse the skin but at the same time helps retain moisture to nourish the skin.
15. Almond Delicious Soap
The Amande Delicious Soap contains ground almond shells to exfoliate the skin whilst cleansing. It smells incredible and is a really good size.
16. Immortelle Divine Cream 4ml
On to one of the more premium skincare products in the Calendar – L’Occitane’s Immortelle Divine cream. This award winning cream works to remove visible signs of ageing and uneven skin tone. This is probably my favourite product in the calendar and whilst the sample should last a while, it probably won’t once I’ve opened it!
17. Shea Butter Hand Cream 10ml
Another one of L’Occitane’s famous hand creams but this time for Dry Skin. This Dry Skin Hand Cream has won multiple awards and I can see why! This is my favourite hand cream from L’Occitane – the subtle scent leaves your hands smelling fresh but not too perfumed whilst the shea works to moisturise and nourish even the driest of hands!
18. Verbena Eau De Toilette 10ml
The first perfume of the Calendar Of Dreams can be found inside drawer number 18 and its the Verbena Eau De Toilette. This perfume smells fresh and floral and the bottle is super pretty! You also receive 10ml which is a large sample and will definitely last a while!
19. Rose Hand Cream 10ml
What better scent to rub all over your hands than rose? The Rose Hand cream moisturises and nourishes the skin whilst leaving it smelling subtly of rose. Plus, the tube is pink – this may be my new favourite hand cream!
20. Repairing Shampoo 35ml
So we tried out the conditioner in Day 12 and now it’s time for the shampoo. Like the conditioner this shampoo contains 5 essential oils to make sure the hair doesn’t dry out after shampooing. Another perfect travel size bottle too.
21. Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 10ml
The prettiest hand cream design award goes to the Cherry Blossom Hand Cream! I love the blossom design on the front of the packaging! This hand cream again keeps hands moisturised and nourished without feeling greasy. It also absorbs super quickly and smells incredible.
22. Overnight Reset Serum 5ml
The Immortelle Reset Night Serum is a richer serum which works to create a more youthful appearance. The serum looks so luxurious and a little goes a long way. Another award winning product and one where you will be buying the full sized product after trying!
23. Ultra Rich Lip Balm 4ml
The lips are definitely an area you can’t afford to forget about in winter – but don’t worry, L’occitance have us covered with the Ultra Rich Lip Balm. This product usually comes in a twist up applicator but for the Calendar it’s in a tube. The lip balm is packed with shea butter to nourish the lips. It smells super fresh – again not too perfumed.
24. Herbae Par Eau De Parfum 5ml
Onto the final day of The Calendar of Dreams and L’Occitane have brought us another perfume but this time the Herbae. Another fresh perfume and a really great size to try out or keep as a handbag perfume to apply on the go.
The Calendar of Dreams is the perfect mix of skincare products – some of our faves and also some new products to try. All of the products are infused with organic ingredients and their focus is to keep the skin moisturised and reduce signs of ageing.
