If you love the aroma of lavender in your body products, as do I, then you really must try L'Occitane's lavender soaps, creams and lotions. I realize that lavender seldom elicits a neutral response– people either tend to love it or dislike it. For me, high quality scented body care products  tend to transport me to Provence upon first inhale, and make me supremely happy. I have used many L'Occitane body products over the years, and their lavender gems rank among my very favorite on the market. They are high quality, a pleasure to use, and they are affordable and infinitely accessible!
L'Occitane Shea Butter Extra-Gentle Lavender Soap ($12.00 for 8.8 oz. from L'Occitane, Nordstrom, Sephora and QVC): This delectably scented lavender soap has a creamy, non-drying lather that is gentle, non-stripping and nourishing. Furthermore, it thoroughly cleanses without leaving a greasy film, and one bar lasts a very long time. I love using it in the shower, and have even used it in lieu of a shave cream to save my legs and underarms, and it does an fantastic job in this capacity. If you love lavender, then this is a soap that you will likely covet.

According to L'Occitane,

Rich in softening and protective shea butter, this soap's foamy lather gently cleanses the skin, while preserving its natural moisture balance. The 100 percent vegetable base is ultra-gentle and suitable for everyday use. 

Ingredients: Sodium Palmate**, Water**, Sodium Palm Kernelate**, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter**, Fragrance, Glycerin**, Palm Kernel Acid**, Sodium Chloride**, Linalool, Tocopherol**, Limonene**, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract**, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil**. **Natural Origin Ingredients. Free of Parabens, Phthalates and Triclosan.
L'Occitane Lavender Hand Cream ($12.00 for 1 oz. $ $22.00 for 2.6 oz. from L'Occitane, Sephora, Nordstrom, QVC and Essential): This light-medium weight hand cream is utterly luxurious in its smooth and creamy texture, and its delightful lavender scent. The formula is fast absorbing and fast-acting– it immediately renders hands soft, supple and ultra-hydrated. The lavender aroma is neither cloying, nor in the least bit pungent. Instead, it leaves a thin veil of scent close to the skin, and it fades away altogether after a couple of hours. I have a tube this in my work bag, and in my purse, and I delight in using it every single day! 

According to L'Occitane,

Enriched with shea butter and lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence, this smooth, light-textured cream gently helps to nourish the hands leaving them softly perfumed.

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cetearyl Alcohol, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Cetearyl Glucoside, Tocopherol, Polysorbate 60, Sorbitan Isostearate, Phenoxyethanol, Corn Starch Modified, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Coumarin, Linalool, Limonene, Geraniol.

Overall Assessment: If you adore lavender, then you need to try these out on your next trip to L'Occitane! If you are not a fan of lavender, then you ought to check out some of their other scents– they really make such lovely products!

  4. It's been a while since I have used anything from L'Occitane. I used to use their soaps for years and their lotions, but stopped about 2 years ago just because I couldn't keep up with the cost. But these sound and look absolutely beautiful to use.
