Bath and body products… always such a great gift idea during the holiday season.
I have a few posts coming down the pipe outlining my top picks from a few different B&B retailers this season, but this was actually my first year receiving some items from L’Occitane.
In case you aren’t familiar with the brand, L’Occitane, short for L’Occitane en Provence, is an international retailer from France. The company boasts products for the body and face, as well as an assortment of fragrances and home products. The company sources the majority of its production from Provence and contributes to a variety of initiatives, such as preserving certain rare species through the planting of their own field of Immortelle flowers in Corsica, developing partnerships with organizations that support the development of scented and aromatic plants, and much more.
Anyways, L’Occitane’s holiday collection is off the charts, and best of all, the brand has partnered with PUR Projet this season, meaning that each holiday edition purchase equals to $1 towards their goal of planting 10,000 trees in North America, meaning that you can turn your holiday shopping into helping future generations to preserve our Canadian biodiversity. Total win-win, right?!
If you’re looking to pick up some gifts to do good this holiday season (in more ways than one), than just keep reading…
Limited Edition Shea Butter Dreams set
This online-exclusive set (C$64, valued at C$76.50) features four Shea Butter items all meticulously wrapped in a beautiful gift box. Included in the set is the Shea Body Shower Oil (250ml), Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream (100ml), Shea Butter Hand Cream (30ml), and a Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm (4ml).
This set is perfect to gift this winter season since the ultra rich shea butter will just melt into dry skin, leaving it smooth and supple for the cold, dry winter ahead.
L’Occitane Shea Honey Dreams
If you’re looking for something a little sweeter, then take a look at the Shea Honey Dreams set (C$64, valued at C$72).
Their limited-edition Honey Harvest line is infused with extracts of lavender honey that are produced according to organic standard. Also enriched with shea butter, this light body cream melts into the skin and helps to nourish and protect it, all the while giving it a nice scent of honey. This set is perfect for those who have normal to dry skin.
This set contains the Honey Harvest Hand Cream (30ml), Honey Harvest Lip Balm (12ml), Body Honey Harvest Ultra Soft Cream (100ml), and Honey Harvest Extra Gentle Soap (150g).
I love giving out crackers to coworkers, so it’s always a treat when beauty brands come out with a set of them.
The Crackers Quatour are so cool because they come in a set of four (C$34, valued at C$38) that you can either gift by itself or split up. Each cracker contains two mini products from their Cherry Blossom, Almond, Aromachologie, Lavender, and Shea collections.
Included products are:
- Cherry Blossom Bath & Shower Gel 35ml
- Cherry Blossom Hand Cream 10ml
- Almond Shower Oil 35ml
- Almond Delicious Hands 10ml
- Aromachologie Relaxing Shower Gel 35ml
- Lavender Hand Cream 10ml
- Shea Body Shower Oil 35ml
- Shea Butter Hand Cream 10ml
I always find these to be the best ideas since it’s a splittable gift and you really kill multiple birds with one stone here. Plus, who wouldn’t want a mini hand cream to throw in their bag or a little shower gel for their next trip?
L’Occitane has a ton of more items available this season (like their advent calendar I talked about last week) that would be suitable for just about anyone on your list. I recommend popping into a L’Occitane store near you or checking out their offerings online. Plus, you know with Cyber Monday being today, maybe you can score some money off these items as well.
Is L’Occitane on your gift list this year?
Please note, I was sent these products from PR. All opinions are my own.
