L’Occitane is often at the top of a Christmas wish list. Their advent calendars have a cult following, bursting with divine products for the face and body, and this year is no different. The L’Occitane Classic Beauty Advent Calendar ($79) looks like a book of myths and legends. It tells of the incredibly rich and fascinating ecosystem that exists in Provence, with a particular focus on the almond tree. Through a story that begins in 1956 and continues to the present day, it tells how L’Occitane took the decision to help reintroduce this tree into Provence.
Since 1976, L’Occitane has been committed to cultivating native ingredients and partnering with producers for sustainable sourcing. L’Occitane is committed to protect 1,000 species and variations of plants by 2025 in Provence. This Christmas, L’Occitane has also partnered with PUR PROJET to fund dedicated tree plantation schemes, here in Australia.
Nature is the heart of L’Occitane. They use high-quality, traceable and natural ingredients such as Shea, Almond, Cherry Blossom and Immortelle flowers that make their products as unique as they are effective for your skin. As well as the fabulous Advent Calendars, L’Occitane have an array of gift sets to celebrate Nature and make it festive and colourful. The Festive Garden, Classic Shea and Honey Harvest collections alternate between blue, pink and orange to make your Christmas a true rainbow of colours and shea! There are lip balms, body creams, hand creams and even some new products, such as the Festive Garden Shower Foam with shea. They all ensure that Christmas brings you closer to Nature. There’s also a host of stocking fillers on offer, from Christmas Baubles ($25 each) to Star Ornaments ($25 each).
