Being a beauty blogger I get a lot of press releases, but one brand I get very excited about is always L’Occitane. Their products are luxurious, beautifully packaged and always smell amazing!
I was recently asked if I would like to try some of the new Limited Edition Sorbet Verbena collection from L’Occitane and as always jumped at the chance. Here are my thoughts on 2 of the products I was sent to share with you…
Sorbet Verbena Cooling Gloss and Sorbet Verbena Eau de Toilette
Here’s a little information about the Sorbet Verbena Cooling Lip Gloss…
The Sorbet Verbena Cooling Gloss not only moisturises lips, but also provides a cooling sensation, perfect especially during the heat of summer! Enriched with shea butter, this gloss also provides nourishment and protection.
My first impressions of the lip gloss were really good. The tube has a secure screw top lid and an angled ‘head’ making application a breeze.
I was really intrigued by the ‘cooling’ claims and can only say they are amazing! When you apply the gloss to your lips you get an instant cool sensation (Almost like that fresh breath feel you get from toothpaste, your lips feel cool and fresh). I have never tried a lip gloss which has this sensation before and was really impressed.
The Cooling Gloss on my lips is clear, the gloss is clear
The gloss at first when applied feels a little ‘wet’ although not sticky, but after a few seconds seems to sink into the lips leaving them moisturised and hydrated with a nice glossy sheen. The gloss also lasts incredibly well, as does the cooling sensation.
I really love this feel of this gloss on my lips and will definitely be buying this again!
A little information about Sorbet Verbena Eau de Toilette…
In Provence, when summer comes, and the temperatures rise, verbena leaves are used to make refreshing and tangy sorbets. The Sorbet Verbena Eau de Toilette gets its inspiration from these traditional recipes and combines invigorating citrus aromas with an aromatic bouquet of mint, for an intensely refreshing summer fragrance. Contains lemon and mint essential oils and an organic verbena extract.
The fragrance really is something special – L’Occitane fragrances are one of my favourites as they last really well on my skin, smell amazing and I often get compliments when wearing them (And what girl doesn’t like compliments?). This fragrance won’t be for everyone, but I am completely in love with it!
This is a very Summer time fragrance and reminds me of Summer evenings and lemon groves. It’s very unique and not like anything I have smelt before.
Top Notes: Lime and Grapefruit
Heart Notes: Verbena, Peppermint and Spearmint
Base Notes: White Woods and Musk
I am completely in love with this fragrance and applauded L’Occitane for creating it!
