Every Christmas day I look forward to opening the special present chosen for me by my sister-in-law. I know exactly what it will be, but that doesn’t make it any less welcome or exciting. In fact, it couldn’t be more perfect, because Lina takes a trip to luxurious bath and beauty brand L’Occitaine, and always gets me one of their beautiful gift boxes. And who, frankly, wouldn’t want to find one of those in their stocking on Christmas morning?
L’Occitaine, the world renowned natural beauty bran, is famous for a whole range of incredible products, from the traditional Marseille soaps, to the fragrant lavender that is the essential part of one of their most popular ranges. Their Shea Butter hand cream is one of the best selling hand products in the world, whilst they have won lots of plaudits for the Immortelle Divine Cream, including being rated best miracle cream by the 2014 Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible. My own personal favourite fragrances include the Almond Oil (also a favourite of Kate Moss apparently.), Cherry Blossom and the stunning Pivoine, which smells just heavenly.
L’Occitaine have recently released their lovely new video for the festive season, and with it, their gift collections for Christmas 2014. As in previous seasons, the gift collections offer great pound for pound savings on the individual products, with some of the gift sets offering savings of more than £20, based on if you were to buy the products separately. All the selections are beautifully packaged in the signature L’Occitaine boxes. There is also the launch of the latest fragrance from L’Occitaine, Arlesienne, which is a range of three floral scents, rose, lavender and Saffron. (I can’t wait to try this).
Here are a few more of my key picks from the L’Occitaine festive gift guide for Christmas 2014.
