This must be one of my favourite launches (if not THE favourite) when it comes to aromatherapy / bodycare this year! The packaging just screams vintage apothecary chic and what's inside is even better! The new line from L'Occitane is all about expertly blended essential oils designed to help you de-stress, unwind and... smell amazing!.
There are two groups of products in this range: the Relaxing Line and the Revitalizing Line. For someone who has trouble getting to sleep, like myself, the bedtime and bathtime rituals are a godsend! I particularly love the Relaxing Pillow Mist (€20) that I have been spraying every single night since I got it! The combination of Lavender, Sweet Orange, Rosemary and Bergamot oils is heavenly and truly does help me relax. The same goes for the Relaxing Massage Body Oil (€16.50) - it smells fantastic and feels gorgeous on the skin. If you love your pamper time and relaxing products this range is for you!
The next product I tried was from the Revitalizing Line and it was the fresh, citrus-scented Revitalizing Body Scrub (€27). It's a delicious concoction of sugar crystals, lemon zest and essential oils like lemon, rosemary, grapefruit, mint and orange. I kid you not, this stuff smells good enough to eat and I will admit that I was tempted to give it a go! I am not sure about the culinary value of the product (haven't quite braved it..) but I can vouch for the cosmetic one - the product is beautiful and leaves my skin feeling luscious and fresh. The scents are truly uplifting and perfect for an early morning shower!
I cannot rave enough about this beautiful range! Even if only for the amazing, retro packaging you must go into your nearby L'Occitane Boutique! And while you're there give everything a sniff, you will not regret it! The range launches in L'Occtitane Boutiques in August 2014.
I cannot wait to pick up the rest of the range, I have my eye on the bath salts and the revitalizing roll-on, which will come in handy as a pick-me-up during those long busy days I spend in the city.
Are you a fan of aromatherapy? If so, let me know your star product, I'd love to hear your recommendations!
