Latest L'Occitane Reviews

Verbena Body Lotion
3.0
Created with Sketch.

25 days ago

I received a trail size bottle of this as a gift. I would've never bought it for myself. The scent is lovely. Its light, lemon-y, and a bit green. But it doesn't seem to last an hour on my skin, and when I wear lotion I want to smell it. Also the tiny little cap is a joke. There was no way to get all of the product out. This lotion was not super moisturizing either. I can get past very little scent if it was moisturizing, but it's not. It's not that it's a bad lotion. It's just not what I like. I used it up, but wouldn't repurchase.

Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap - Milk

I received this as a gift. It was pretty good for a bar soap, but I prefer liquid soaps. I was impressed that unlike other bar soaps I've tried, this one didn't make my skin feel dry or tight after using it. However, I also didn't find it to be particularly moisturizing either. The fragrance is almost nonexistent, and while I'm not docking it points for that, I love my shower products to be fragrant. I've been using this as a body soap, but the website's instructions make it seem like a hand soap: "Massage L'Occitane gentle soap onto hands. Rinse thoroughly." Either way, it's been working just fine. I think this is best suited for those in need of a very gentle soap. For my own needs and preferences, this isn't something I'll be buying.

Rose Eau de Toilette

This review is for the 2018 release. This is a clean, fresh pink rose brightened by raspberry. Despite the fruit, it is not a sugary or fruity frilly rose. It is a true fresh rose, perhaps on the more sour side when compared to Chloe etc. Unfortunately, a sweet plastic-like note came up on my skin so I couldn't enjoy the base. L'Occitane says the base has patch and musk. Still, I think it can be given a chance if you like pleasant, clean rose scents. OK sillage and lasting power of 4-5 hours on my skin.
