You know the way you often only find out about something really fab after it's sold out? Especially at Christmas? We’re here to help – here’s the official advance notice of the L’Occitane gift collection, available online and in-stores now. There's an array of price points to satisfy every budget but be forewarned- you'll definitely want to invoke the old one-for-you- one-for-me rule repeatedly. First up, the Classic and Luxury Advent Calendars, both of which are packed full of signature surprises. The Classic (€59, worth €100) contains best-selling products like Verbena Shower Gel, Shea Butter Hand Cream, Repairing Shampoo and Almond Shower Oil as well as an assortment of other popular miniatures.
The Luxury Advent Calendar (€99, worth €151) takes it up another notch. The generous, luxe chest of 24 magic drawers, each containing a different miniature, is full of little joys. One day might reveal a rich hand cream, the next a comforting lip balm or shampoo treat.We love keeping the award-winning Divine Cream and the Terre de Lumière Eau de Parfum desk-side for quick pick-me-ups. Actually, this year we might keep the whole thing on our desk as a special holiday treat.
While we’re at it, we’re going to stock up on some Baubles (€12 each) for Kris Kindle presents – each one contains a trio of delectable products. We love the sweet promise of Spring inherited in Cherry Blossom, the freshness of Verbena and the nourishing goodness of Shea Butter.
There’s a myriad of choices online and in-stores when it comes to gift sets - but the replenishing Trio Hand Set (€28), The Bath and Shower Gel Collection (€28), and the opulent Terre de Lumière Gift Box (€92, worth €117) for body are real stand-outs for us.
And it goes without saying that the Divine Harmony Gift Set (€355), featuring L'Occitane's renowned anti-ageing serum, face cream and Immortelle oil makeup remover, is the ultimate pampering kit for someone super special.
