I wanted to create a L’Occitane beauty edit simply because I’ve been using their products for a while now. Without stating the obvious, L’Occitane is one of my favourite beauty brands; it felt right to put this edit together ahead of Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. My latest gift guide is live but if that is not enough, here are more gift ideas to get you in the mood for love and self-care.
Put an extra spring in your step (no pun intended!) with a L’Occitane uplifting fragrance. My go-to day perfume is Osmanthus which smells like a fresh daisy. I am often complimented on how lovely I smell whenever I wear this fragrance. It always makes me smile. If you appreciate a scent that emanates spring renewal and the warmth of summer, Osmanthus may satisfy your taste.
Hold onto your seat while Terre De Lumiere almost takes centre stage. Mild with edible notes such as honey and almond, this fragrance has an earthy scent. It also oozes evening elegance that goes perfectly with a little black dress. Why not create a His ‘n’ Hers gift set by combining this perfume with L’Occitane Homme Bois Flotte? After all, we all desire a match made in heaven. A fragrance gift may not consistently score high in originality; thus, make a special effort to find one that complements the wearer’s personality.
L’Occitane offers a plethora of products for all skincare enthusiasts with different skin types. Enriched with sweet almond oil from Provence, crushed almond shells and sugar crystals, the Delicious Paste gently exfoliates the skin. Although I prefer natural scents, this body paste is not overpowering, nor does it irritate my skin. After exfoliating my body, I apply a small amount of L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream, containing 25% shea butter. Suitable for dry and sensitive skin, this moisturiser has a heavy consistency. If you have itchy or dry skin, you may want to moisturise with thick cream. You could mix and match such products to create a bespoke gift that the recipient is far more likely to use.
Let us not forget hand hygiene which has become more critical since the pandemic. L’Occitane Verbena Hand Liquid Soap Refill Duo would make a thoughtful gift. It contains shea extract, known for its nourishing properties. Furthermore, liquid soap nourishes the skin while improving our hygiene and wellbeing. The eco-recharge refill allows for 82% less packaging, while the liquid soap pump bottle is small and chic. Luxury in a bottle sounds like the perfect gift, especially if it makes you look and feel your best.
