Every time I step foot into a L'Occitane store, I fall in love with not only the lovely smells but the selection of beautifully packaged goods. Each item is something to admire and I love to display them in my beauty corner. L'Occitane is also very close to my heart as I first discovered the brand during my time in NYC with my mum for my 18th birthday which feels like such a long time ago now!
I had never been a huge lover of floral scents until recently. I remember reading articles containing tips for better sleeping which always suggested spraying lavender mists over bed linens or having the scent around the bed in some way. I always wanted to put this to the test but could never find a nice lavender scent which was not too over powering. That is why I instantly fell in love with the Lavande collection. Each product smells natural and sweet, not too overpowering yet gives off a great amount of scent.
As I became quite obsessed, I ended up purchasing not just one item from the collection but four... oops! These included the; Lavande scented candle, hand cream, soap and foaming bath bubbles. Although I have fallen in love with the bath bubbles, which have all been used (sob), and the hand cream, I have yet to actually light my candle or unwrap the bar of soap! This is because they each kick off enough scent already so I utilize this by keeping them next to my bed which I do have to say, may actually ease me to sleep!
Having used the bath bubbles and hand cream, I can confirm that they both do an exceptional job! L'Occitane are well known for their hand creams and this one certainly lives up to that as it is so light and sinks into the skin beautifully, making it my top hand care pick of the year up to now. The bubble bath is amazing! I have never experienced a more relaxing bath in my life and can only appreciate the insane amount of bubbles which make bath time oh so fun and leave my skin feeling beautiful and smelling delicious, just in time for a wonderful nights sleep.
