L’Occitane Ramadan Mubarak Beauty Calendar

 A rather thoughtful soul gifted me the Ramadan calendar from L’Occitane at the start of Ramadan. I am a fan of their hand creams and was curious about their skincare range, but it was a little outside of my price range, so it was nice to get a range of products to try out.

The box itself feels sturdy and beautifully put together. Split into ten sections covering three days each, each section slides out and is itself split into three boxes. Each box contains a little treat.

I opened the first few and found a mix of classic, instantly recognisable products and newer skincare offerings. The classic, shea butter hand cream, the cherry blossom hand cream (my favourite) and the verbena range. I was surprised to find they do perfume too, including a perfume version of the cherry blossom scent. 

Some of the products were a good size, like this toner which is 30ml. I have been using the Clarins green Purifying Toner for the last twenty years and love it, but I am curious enough to try this product from the Immortelle range. I visited the L’Occitane shop in the Ashford (Kent) shopping outlet last week and saw the whole Immortelle range showcased in the most gorgeous packaging and left with them on my mental wish list (the Immortelle night serum was also in the calendar).

I love a good skin oil, and this Almond Supple Skin Oil was also a good size (15ml). It was the first product I tried and smells amazing. A few drops in the palm of my hand and then massaged into my face left my whole face feeling moisturised and dewy, but not greasy. I could smell the scent for ages afterwards (I still can as I write this). You only need  a few drops at a time, so this should last ages.

I didn’t take pictures of all of the products as I didn’t want to spoil the surprise for anyone else that has bought, been gifted, or wants to buy this. There were 30 products in total, split into seven body (hand and body creams), eight face (my favourites and the ones I can’t wait to try), eleven bath and hair and four scents (the most generous I thought). The sizes are great to try the products or for travel.

The L’Occitane Ramadan Mubarak Beauty calendar costs £99 (with a product value given as £130) and is available from their website.


Is this something you would buy? Do you use or have you tried L’Occitane products and what do you think of them?

Jazkah’Allah khairun to the kind soul who gifted me this, I will enjoy trying out the different products and creating little moments of self-care for myself.
