Beauty advent calendars are my favourite type of advent calendar and every year I purchase between one to three different ones. These advent calendars spark so much joy for me and I love the anticipation of opening a window in these calendars each day to reveal a new self care beauty treat with which to pamper myself in the busy lead up to Christmas.
One of my favourite beauty advent calendars is the L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar. Although the exact contents of this beauty advent calendar vary from year to year they do remain fairly similar. So the 2022 contents will give you a good idea of what quality and variety of products to expect in your 2023 calendar as well. I’ve written this L’Occitane Advent Calendar Review to help you decide whether this is a beauty advent calendar you would love to spoil yourself with too.
Read on to discover whether this advent calendar is well curated, what categories of beauty products are included, what the size of the products are, and whether this advent calendar offers good value for money.

L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar 2022 Design
The L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar design 2022 is stylishly Christmas-y without being over the top Christmas-y. The packaging depicts the four seasons beautifully illustrated in the Christmas colours of red, green and yellow.
L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar Packaging 2022
The 2022 L’Occitane Classic Advent Calendar comes in a large rectangular cardboard gift box measuring 44.5cm x 30cm x 4cm.
The rectangular box lid opens up and has Christmas tree shaped side flaps that slot into the base keeping it open. When open it is 34cms high. It looks beautiful and festive on display.
Each day’s beauty treat is hidden behind a perforated push through window rather than a pull out drawer. Thus this L’Occitane calendar box cannot be reused again in subsequent years to make your own DIY advent calendar.
The gift box is however made out of 100% cardboard obtained from sustainable forestry and is fully recyclable. Impressively, even the insert holding the products in place is made from cardboard and not plastic.
