L'Occitane Lavande

L'Occitane have come up with yet another beautiful collection of products, this time based on Lavender. The range also consists of a Hand Purifying Gel(£6), which I thought is quite innovative for a skin care brand to come up with.

The Body Lotion(£18) from the range is really light and fluffy but as it contains Shea Butter, it tends to lean slightly on the moisturising side once absorbed fully. It's not extremely sticky or heavy on the skin but just makes it soft and supple hence perfect for the summer or the coming Autumn.

Of course you would need something a little more richer for the chilly winter.

The Hand Cream(£13.50) on the other hand is slightly more thicker in consistency than the Body Lotion however still absorbs pretty well on to the skin, without leaving any sticky residue. Again, this contains Lavender Oil and Shea Butter as main ingredients and works superbly at smoothing out the skins surface. 

It's almost like a manicure in a tube and such a great treat for those hard working hands. Available in 30ml and 75ml sizes, this one's a must have in my opinion. 

Both the products have a very distinct and substantial Lavender scent to them, that lingers around for a good few hours of wear. I noted that the Lavender smell is quite different to the typical one that you would smell in The Body Shop for example. 

It smells very pure, woody and relaxing, almost like aromatherapy as compared to the usual  light and floral smell associated with Lavender. You have to be a Lavender fan to fall in love with the collection really! 

Available to purchase from uk.loccitane.com.
