L’Occitane Dry Skin Hand Cream with 20% Shea Butter

I posted about the Almond Shower Oil before here. The Fleur Cherie Bath and Shower Gel is part of the orange blossom line at L’Occitane. It has a very light, feminine, subtle and fresh scent.  It is 8.4 oz and has lasted for about two months for me in the past.  A little goes a long way and you get amazing lather with just a small drop. I love how divine the bathroom smells after using this shower gel. 

L’Occitane Fleur Cherie Bath and Shower gel and Eau de Toillet

I like to layer it with the Fleur Cherie Eau De Toilette which has neroli and orange blossom notes. It’s subtle enough though that you could layer it with anything. The Fleur Cherie is definitely a feminine scent so if you prefer unisex fragrances, it might not appeal to you.

 L’Occitane Green Tea with Jasmine Eau De Toilette

This was my first purchase of the Green Tea with Jasmine Eau De Toillete. The bottle and packaging grabbed my attention. The notes per L’Occitane are bitter orange and cardamom – top,  green tea extract and jasmine absolute- middle, thyme and cedar- bottom. I’ve only used it once so far but I would describe it as a unique, sexy and elegant scent. Like all of the L’Occitane products I’ve tried it was long lasting without being overbearing. It’s light enough to be worn year round, but I think this would be excellent in the cooler months as there’s a warmness to the scent.

If I had to compare, I’d say Fleur Cherie is, “why don’t you and your friends meet us at ……..”, and the Green Tea with Jasmine Eua De Toilette is, “just the two of us, I’d like that….”

L’Occitane Citrus Verbena Shower Gel

The Citrus Verbena Shower Gel smells just like you think it would from the name. The ingredients are grapefruit and verbena lemon. It’s clean, awakening, fresh and great for that pick me up in the mornings when you wake up and realize it’s only Wednesday and not Friday. ( I know I’m not the only one that happens to :0).  It’s a best seller on the L’Occitane website here.

The hand lotions are staples for me. I keep one in the car and one in my purse. I’m always applying lotion to my hands so the one I keep in my purse usually only lasts about a month.

Has anyone tried any of these from L’Occitane?  Who makes your favorite bath gels, lotions, toilettes? I love discovering new products/brands.

Happy Hump Day!
