L'Occitane the GREAT

WHAT L'Occitane review
WHEN 25th October 2010

" L'Occitane Tried and Tested "
One of my favorite beauty brands offered me the opportunity for me to review some products. What I love about L'Occitane is how the beauty product are so enrich with minerals, vitamins and leaving anyone skin looking health, soft, glowing and gorgeous.
"For over 30 years, L'OCCITANE has drawn inspiration from Mediterranean art de vivre and traditional Provencal techniques to create natural beauty products dedicated to your well-being. Our effective products are rich in natural active ingredients and essential oils, which are often organic and always of controlled origin. Our body care, skincare, bath and hair care products feature luxurious fragrances and textures from ingredients like shea butter, lavender, verbena and immortelle."

L'Occitane's products are specially developed and produced from its base in Manosque. The company sources the majority of its production from local producers who rely on traditional production methods. 

L’Occitane boutiques are always fun to browse through, with their wonderful array of fragrances and body creams. But working with the amazing PR team, I was able to select any products i desired online and test. As you know I am always on the look out for a new skincare routine. Having been trying to finish the skincare products I already own so I can move on and try something with better results. But already being a farmilar with the brand I knew the products wouldnt disappoint.

1) Pour Homme- L'Occitan eau de toilette - Created through the distillation of authentic A.O.C. lavender, blended with the peppery, nutmeg scent of burnt wood. A panoramic and complex fragrance, redolent with the rich scents of Provence, in all their ruggedness and mystery. Intended for men, but women love it - tested on 15 girls. 

2) Cade Shaving Oil- Enriched with Cade complex and organic vegetable oils, the Shaving Oil: 
* softens facial hairs for a gentle shave 
* enables the razor to glide easily for a fast shave 
* helps reduce redness and irritations.
The shave is close and precise (goatee, sideburns…). Skin is soft and supple. Ideal for men who are in a hurry or are travelling. May be used for about 50 shavings. This product is a MUST have for MEN. I rarely shave but the Oil was so delicate, soft and left my skin feeling so youthful. 

3) Cade Youth Concerntrate - Enriched with Cade complex (purifying and invigorating), birch sap (invigorating and firming) and beech bud extract (soothing and anti-wrinkle), this daily skincare treatment will: 
* moisturise for an immediate feeling of comfort 
* fortify and protect against the harmful effect of environmental aggressions for a better anti-aging prevention
* provide effective action to fight the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Skin is moisturised, supple and comfortable, and is firm and smooth and regenerated. The appearance of wrinkles is diminished. Apply every morning and evening on the face and neck and you'll see such a dramatic change. Another MUST have products for me and women.

4) Creme Fleurs de Lumiere- L'Occitane uses for nearly 10 years of immortelle essential oil in its anti-aging range. Cette année, L'Occitane renouvelle la gamme et associe l'immortelle à la pâquerette ( Bellis perennis ) pour offrir des soins aux femmes souhaitant préserver la jeunesse et l'éclat de leur peau. This year, L'Occitane and renews the range combines the immortal to the daisy (Bellis perennis) to provide care to women wishing to preserve youth and radiance of their skin. En effet la pâquerette âgit aux 3 étapes de la production de mélanine et lutte contre les tâches qui gâchent l'uniformité du teint. Indeed the daisy acts with 3 stages of melanin production and fight against the tasks which spoil the uniformity of the complexion. Un gros travail a également été fait sur les textures, qui sont fraîches et légères. Much work has been done on the textures that are fresh and light. the cream-gel texture is very cool and very pleasant to apply, especially during the summer. 

5) Huile De Douche - Shower Gel Oil
 “Transforms into a lavish, softening foam–original and unique in texture–that leaves a satin-like softness all over the body. Rich in almond oil and nourishing lipids. Cleanses gently to impart a delectable perfume. Keep handy in bath or shower as an extra-pampering alternative to Shea Butter Soap and our fragrance Soap. Suitable for men and women.”

What i loved about the shower gel was the foaming action, texture and the gorgeous smell. Also InStyle Magazine loves it so much "Add this super-hydrating shower oil to your bathroom beauty arsenal and you'll never look back." Lisa Durant: InStyle's acting beauty

  1. Some all natural skin care products that are geared toward anti aging are made with humectants. These are used to draw moisture in the air. These are use to keep the moisture in the skin and air out to prevent over drying. This is just another all-natural way to maintain healthy skin.
