Product Review: L'Occitane Cherry Princess & Shea Limited Edition RangesTuesday, April 24, 2012
Hello beautiful people! I am reviewing L'Occitane's latest release today - their Cherry Princess range. I mentioned this range in the Mother's Day video that I posted last week, and promised to have more information and a proper review posted, so here it is! This was just released last week, and if you haven't already seen and smelt them in store, you have to go now!
The entire range of products is available at L'Occitane stores. This includes the products I was sent above - the body gel, hand cream, and solid perfume - and a pearlescent (how exciting is this?!) shower cream, as well as, of course, the EDT.
What I love about this range is how unexpectedly beautiful it smells. I expected it to have a very sweet, candy-like smell. It does smell exactly like that when you first apply it (the smell is almost exactly the same throughout the range, no matter what product), but then it does almost a complete 180 and changes into this beautifully dusty, slighty woodsy scent, whilst still maintaining its fruity notes. I love it!
The body gel is a particular favourite of mine - once I apply it, the smell seeps into my clothes and creates this little cloud of perfume heaven. I am addicted to this smell!
As mentioned previously, these are already in store, and they have a fantastic Mother's Day gift pack for this range, so if you haven't already bought your Mom something, this is definitely one range you should check out!
Another range a little less recently released (but still every bit as incredible) is the Shea Limited Edition range - a collection of the Ultra Rich Body Cream, the Hand Cream, and the Lip Balm - which comes in three different scents inspired by three beautiful flowers. They are the Desert Rose from Morocco, the Egyptian Hibiscus, and the Cocoa Flower from the Ivory Coast.
All have the signature shea butter scented undertone. The beautiful designs you see on the packaging are inspired by traditional Bogolan fabric, patterned according to the different villages and dyed using mud.
These are extremely rich, moisturising products, which you probably already knew if you know anything about shea butter. My skin always feels beautifully moisturised after using these products. The lip balm is a total heaven send for my extremely chapped lips!
The lipbalm retails for AUD 14, the body cream for AUD 32, and the hand cream for AUD 39.
L'Occitane have many more gift sets available for purchase that would make the perfect Mother's Day gift, so definitely check them out in store or online.
