Yellow is the colour of happiness. It is also synonymous with positivity and energy. The world is shifting from a tumultuous time towards optimism. What is more, the summer season fits in perfectly whilst uplifting our mood with bursts of sunshine yellow, fresh sunflowers, butterflies and daisies. To celebrate yellow as the colour of hope and renewal, L’Occitane has put together their edit of exhilarating products, including the new Happy Shea and Verbena collections.
Good things come in yellow as well as in small packages. The new limited-edition Happy Shea Ultra-Light Body Cream by L’Occitane has a soft, whipped texture. Presented in an ochre-yellow 200ml container, it gently hydrates the skin while providing a promise of a new day with hints of freshly squeezed citrus fruits. Base notes of peach and musk add a special touch to the shea collection. The Ultra-Light Body Cream is an excellent option for the summer months and perfect for use after exposure to sunshine.
An essential handbag must-have is hand-cream. L’Occitane offers a new limited-edition Citrus Verbena Swirl Hand Cream in 30ml. In addition, it keeps dry hands perfectly shiny for an Instagramable hand-shot. Inspired by toothpaste tube technology, their hand cream contains a coloured gel that will keep your hands nourished. Alternatively, their multipurpose Petit Remedy, made with 100% naturally derived ingredients, helps to soothe dry skin on your hands, face and body.
The Shea and Verbena collections conjure up the spirit of Provence. They make you feel alive and look youthful as daily stress can take its toll on your skin. The L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Light Cream SPF20 in 50ml has a cashmere-like texture. It also helps to reduce complexion irregularities and dark spots.
Your wellbeing routine would not be the same without a beautifully scented perfume. All ladies must smell delightful. Osmanthus Eau de Toilette in 75ml offers a divine scent. I adore the feminine notes of apricot, pear and bitter orange juxtaposed with masculine base notes of cedarwood and sandalwood. Historically, the osmanthus flower is a symbol of good luck and honour in China. Albeit a delicate fragrance, Osmanthus by L’Occitane is long-lasting without overpowering the wearer. If you like a fruity, fresh scent, this one is for you.
