L’OCCITANE FAVES & MUST HAVES
Celebrating 40 years in the beauty industry, L'Occitane (pronounced LOX-EE-TAHN) has more than their fair share of cult faves. From beautiful scents, to luxurious hand creams and silky body oils, there’s something from everyone, men included. I’ve teamed up with the French brand to bring you My Top 5 Favourites, along with some note-worthy mentions.
Scented candles are the easiest way of mellowing your mood and creating a comforting atmosphere. I keep candles all over my house - by my bedside; coffee table in the living room; front foyer and even on my desk. This one is infused with neroli & orchid for a subtle floral scent that’s perfect for spring/ summer.
TIP: Candles make an excellent gift! I gifted Michael, aka, Global Garcon, a beautiful candle for Xmas an he was over the moon.
Facial mists are one of my all-time must-haves for good skin. I use them after I wash my face to prep my skin for serum and moisturizer; I spritz them on to set my makeup; and I like to mist my face throughout the day to feel hydrated and fresh. This one offers hydration for up to 8 hours and is made with peony extract to give the skin the appearance of a balanced complexion.
I wish, I wish, I wish you guys could smell this beautiful scent! With blue iris from Grasse, France, the perfume capital of the world, and white iris from the Mediterranean, this scent is unique, light and feminine with floral tones. It’s made with natural extracts for the purest and cleanest notes. I think I need this in a candle!
Like a good facial mist, oils have become one of my go-to products in my daily skincare regimen. They nourish the skin and leave it feeling softer and looking more radiant. Who doesn’t want that? This is one 100% natural and contains 5% shea oil to protect and nourish skin. It’s one of my favourite oils because it smells heavenly and doesn’t break me out in a rash like some others I’ve tried.
This cream is probably L’Occtiane’s biggest cult fave. I keep a tube in my handbag at all times and another one at my desk. I love this product so much that I’ve gifted it many times now because every woman (and man!) needs a good hand cream. It’s creamy and highly moisturizing without being greasy and it contains 20% shea butter which means it smells amazing! (Can you tell I love shea butter?) If you’ve never tried this cream, I urge you to because you’ll fall in love!
If you need another reason to love L’Occitane, here are a few things that they do to give back; they are dedicated to saving sight, the emancipation of women in Burkina Faso, West Africa and the return of almond trees to the south of France. They’ve also set up a support fund for lavender in Provence.
So I’ve shared my top 5. What are yours? Are there any L’Occitane products I didn’t list that I should try out? Let me know!
