L’Occitane Bath and Body Products Review and Mother Day 2014 Gift Idea





Every time I pass by L’Occitane at the mall, I have to stop and do a little test drive of the products that are always on display in the front of the store. Have you tried L’Occitane products before? They are literally to die for and I am 99% positive that no one makes a better hand cream. If you are looking for a Mothers Day gift idea, let me tell you, anything that I am showing you today will knock your mommas boots off (yeah, I just wrote that) in the bath and body department.


Review of L'Occitane beauty and fragrance products.



L'Occitane Neroli orchidee  fragrance review


Get ready for awesome. I am even going to start this post off by posing  (oh yeah) with the L’Occitane Neroli Orchidee fragrance, just for for fun. I mean, why not? Plus, my nail color is rockin…gotta show it off somehow.

L'Occitane Fragrance Review


And just for kicks, I am going to pretend that you are in the room with me right now and I am making you try this fragrance because it’s awesome.

side note: This pictures takes me back to high school when my now sister in law was being super annoying and dowsing me with about 100 bottles of perfume. Don’t worry, I made sure to return the favor.





Brand Overview: A tantalizing and lovely fragrance, Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette blends the scents of two precious white flowers in a beautiful harmony. A heart of radiant neroli essence from the Mediterranean is blended with caressing white orchid absolute from Madagascar. Fruity bursts of orange and heart notes of peach complete the sensuous bouquet, which lingers delicately on the body throughout the day.

My Thoughts: Well, when my fragrance picky husband comments on my perfume, I know it’s a major hit. When I first sprayed this one, what I noticed most was the white orchid. Then as the fragrance settled more, I could smell the citrus and something that was slightly peppery. But what stood out to me most about the L’Occitane Neroli Orchidee is that the scent lasted for a long, long time. I could even smell it faintly on my neck and wrists when I woke up in the morning, 12 hours later.

Price Tag: $75.00 2.5 oz



L'Occitane Neroli and Orchidee body milk review


Brand Overview: Envelop your skin with the tantalizing fragrance of our Néroli & Orchidée Body Milk, a lovely harmony of two precious white flowers. Perfect for daily use, this fresh body milk moisturizes the skin, leaving it delicately fragranced. Made with neroliessence from the Mediterranean and white orchid absolute from Madagascar, it leaves behind a floral, fruity fragrance.

My Thoughts: This Body Milk is completely non greasy,  moisturizing, and smelled delicious. When I first applied it, the fruity smell came out the most and then settled into a nice floral/citrus combination. This Neroli & Orchidee Body Milk worked best on my legs, but it wasn’t enough moisture to be a hand cream.

Price Tag: $20.00 5.9oz


L'Occitane Neroli & Orchid bath gel review



Brand Overview: The Néroli & Orchidée Perfumed Shower Gelblends the scents of two precious white flowers to infuse a tantalizing, lovely fragrance into your shower ritual. This delicate shower gel foams generously when applied with water to gently cleanse the skin. Made with neroli essence from the Mediterranean and white orchid absolute from Madagascar, it leaves behind a floral, fruity fragrance.

My Thoughts: This definitely pairs very well with the other products above it. Again, I really like the Neroli & Orchidee fragrance a whole lot. This shower gel was non-stripping, very moisturizing, and left my body smelling oh-so-good.

Price Tag: $18.00 5.9 oz




L'Occitane Fragrance Beautifying Cream


L'Occitane Fragrance Beautifying Cream

Brand Overview: Extend the life of La Collection de Grasse Eau de Toilette fragrances on your skin with our FragranceBeautifying Cream. This innovative formula contains universal floral notes that embrace each of thefragrances of La Collection de Grasse. With a fresh and smooth texture, this cream captures their scent to extend the trail of your eau de toilette while leaving skin moisturized and silky.

My Thoughts: Wow, this product is so rich and moisturizing; my skin literally just drank it in. I think this product is really cool because it pairs with all of the fragrances. Personally, if I was going for body cream to pair with my fragrance, I would choose this one because it’s really moisturizing and you barely have to use any.

L'Occitane Dry Hand Cream

L'Occitane Dry Hand Cream Review

Brand Overview: Enriched with 20% Shea Butter, this super-creamy balm penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize hands. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil are blended with Shea Butter to create this extremely effective formula. The rich texture leaves hands soft and smooth with no oily traces, and can be applied as often as needed.

My Thoughts: If you are looking for the best hand cream ever, you are looking at it. With the L’Occitane dry hand cream, your hands will feel the best they have ever felt. I also love that a little goes a long way with this, it has a baby powder fragrance,  and that it comes in a purse size for when my hands need a pick-me-up. You need to try this stuff, you will thank me later.

Price Tag: $28.00 5.2 oz
