I learned about L’Occitane en Provence some years ago thanks to my boyfriend. He knows that I’m a lip balm addict so he got me a present – a whole bunch of lip balms, all from L’Occitane. They were amazing! (I still keep some of the tubes as you can see below…sweet memories). Through the years I got to know more of their products and step by step, L’Occitane turned into one of my favourite brands. My blog isn’t very popular so as you can guess I’m not paid to write this post, I just decided to share with you what I like most from the brand and maybe you can tell me what I’ve missed. So, here are my favourite picks with no particular order.
1. Lip balms.
Have to start with them because they’re the first thing that made me fall in love with the brand. The white tube is their most popular Moisturizing Certified Organic Shea Lip Balm and also my all-time favourite lip balm. If you suffer from extremely dry and chapped lips, you’ve tried everything and it didn’t work, look this way. The colourful ones are from a limited edition and they were Desert Rose Lip Balm, Hibiscus Flower Lip Balm and Cocoa Flower Lip Balm. All of them are having 10% shea butter and are amazing.
2. Shower oil.
Is there anybody that hasn’t heard of the Almond Shower Oil? It won’t be exaggerating if I say that it’s the best shower oil in the world because it really is. Smells fantastic, leaves your skin smooth and soft and you don’t even need a moisturiser after going out of the shower.
3. Body and hair care.
Here I’m showing a small part of my travel essentials – the Aromachologie Repairing Conditioner and the Ultra Rich Body Lotion. I keep them in travel sizes because when I’m on the way my hair and skin are more stressed than ever and these products are giving me the nourishing I need. And of course the lovely Rose 4 Reines Body Milk! Wonderful texture and great for moisturising. I’m using it after my evening shower and on the next morning, I’m waking up to the beautiful rose scent which lasts forever.
I’m also including the soaps although I’m using them only on my hands but I wanted to mention them because some are exfoliating but they exfoliate your skin very gently and they’re hydrating your body as well. Also, they’re very pretty and I’ve noticed that people like them as a gift.
4. Hand creams. I use both of the hand creams on the picture together because the one on the right is the Immortelle Brightening Hand Care SPF20 which gives you the protection but for bigger hydration I apply the Shea Butter Subtle Violet Hand Cream (it was a limited edition) before the brightening one. Of course you can use them separately. Another hand cream that I love but isn’t on the picture is the Cherry Blossom Hand Cream, wonderful…just wonderful!
5. The Angelica range
There are only two products from the range on the picture but the whole Angelica series is fantastic if you have oily/combination skin. The Ultra Matte Fluid is going to keep you shine-free all day long when you apply it before your primer or use it as a primer. There isn’t anything else that has helped me so much. The eye roll-on is giving you a refreshing feeling, you can use it night and or/day, I store mine in the fridge and apply it in the mornings.
