Skincare - Body -L'Occitane - Olive soap with Olive Tree Leaves
blushed 11/16/2003 8:01:00 AM
The rather large bar of soap looked promising. A lovely rustic looking bar of green olive soap flecked with bits of olive tree leaves. Smelt like nothing and didn't do much exfoliating either. I suspect the leaves are there to beautify the soap bar and make it look more authentic. It's a soap and it cleaned well but it smelt like I was using nothing! I like my bath products to smell good so this was quite a disappointment
Bath Treatments -L'Occitane - Lavender AOC Shower Gel

This smelt beautiful and just a little is enough for a good and thorough cleansing. I also love how it leaves my skin feeling very clean but soft and smooth. Took off a lipstick for being so expensive!
Cleansers -L'Occitane - Lavender Cleansing Face Gel
blushed 11/16/2003 7:51:00 AM
This mild foaming clear gel cleanser leaves my skin soft and smooth but not taut. Again like all the rest of the Lavender Harvest line, it smells wonderful and makes cleansing my face something enjoyable. It won't remove makeup but it's great to use in the mornings and in the evenings after using a makeup remover/milk cleanser for that extra clean feel!
Usually I'm too lazy to use a toner but this beautifully scented product makes me look forward to adding an extra step in my cleansing regime. It smells absolutely wonderful and it's mild. It leaves my skin soft and smooth but never taut.
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - Lavender Gel Face Cream

Nice basic soothing moisturizer but not much else. It is a pleasure to use though, the scent's lovely
Very pretty sheer and non-shimmery pink lipgloss that goes a soft light pink on my lips even though it looks milky in the wand. Again I love the packaging, no need to carry a separate lipbrush. Expensive but worth it because I can actually finish the gloss!
The shade is a lovely bright pink with a touch of coral that has no shimmer but lots of shine. I'm glad I got this lipglaze as I don't think I'd be able to take such a shade in lipstick/creme form. I have no problem making this gloss last on me though, I love it :) I also like the packaging, saves me carrying a separate lipbrush. I'd definitely get this again

It is so pretty in the tube and the SA told me it's the best selling shade so I promptly got it. Unfortunately the colour doesn't show up on me at all!
I love L'Occitane, for the packaging and the quality. Yes I'm sure there are similar ones out there but to me, L'Occitane's just much more enjoyable. I would not even rate it expensive. It is worth it's pricetag. I love the Lavender and Verbena Harvest candles. Lasts for a long time, the scent's beautifully subtle and there's nothing "perfumy" or synthetic smelling about it. Right now I'm burning the Aromacologie range and it's beautiful! Packaged in a heavy clear glass container with a tin lid. Aromacologie candles come in two types, Relaxing with Tea Tree, Geranium & Lavender essential oils - bliss Revitalizing and Purifying has Lemon, Cardamom and Eucalyptus essential oils in it. I love this when I have guests around.
I like the way this beautiful smelling hand cream is packaged. Freshly moisturized hands are very slippery and this tube is therefore accident free. It is non-sticky and did I say it smelled beautiful? The soothing lavender smell helps soothe me and make bedtime really enjoyable :) However if you have very dry hands, this will be too lightweight for you
The scent made me sick. Worse than the shower gel..honey something also.
This smells really good in the shop. Alas when I got it home, it is really overpowering! Feels good though, a nice runny smooth cream that moisturizes very well. Unfortunately it's a bit too heavy for those who live in perpetually humid weather.
Very pretty looking pink bar. Smells sweet yet faintly dusty. I don't really like this bubble bar - there's no kick. I'm not into sweet scents but I don't find this bubble bar strongly scented at all.
I like this much more than Bare Naked Lady. The scent in this is heavenly and the powder isn't exactly finely milled but it does it's job. The cocoa butter bits in there are a lovely touch but seiously most of these bits fall onto the floor anyway waiting to be picked up! The smell of this is enough reason for me to buy this again!

This smells like very sweet honey and leaves my skin feeling clean but not dry. However the smell really gets to me. It is too sweet especially in the shower. However the scent that gets left on my skin is just right.
