L’Occitane’s new Melting Honey collection has to be one of my all time favourite L’Occitane ranges.
For this collection L’Occitane have combined the fabulous benefits of shea butter from Burkina Faso with the soothing and protective properties of honey from Provence.
While I deteste the taste of honey I adore its scent and this range did not disappoint.
The guys at L’Occitane chose to blend their iconic shea butter with an organic, rare lavender honey from the Provence region of France. The bees spend their summer in aromatic lavender fields which create a beautiful and exceptionally special honey.
This honey combined with the soft, nourishing properties of their shea butter creates a stunning, warming, treat for your body and senses.
My hero products from the range include the Ultra Soft Cream (£18) which contains 10% shea butter and leaves your skin feeling silky soft and smooth. The non-greasy, rich Hand Cream (£8) contains a whopping 25% shea butter and is a handbag staple while the Lip Balm (£8.50) melts onto your lips leaving a gorgeous sheen and smells delectable!
Also available is the Soft Shower Gel (£14) and Exfoliating Sugars (£22) which do a fabulous job of buffing and cleansing your skin to silky smooth perfection while leaving behind a delicate and delicious hint of honey scent.
The final product in the range is the Solidarity Soap (£3) which is a little bit special.
October 8th is World Sight Day and every year L’Occitane sells a fund-raising ”solidarity soap” with the support of the L’Occitane Foundation,to finance NGO programmes aimed at fighting visual impairment in Burkina Faso, where their fair trade shea butter is produced.
100% of the profits from the sale of each soap will enable a person from the rural area of Burkina to have access to glasses and eye care.
Talk about beauty with a conscience.
The L’Occitane Melting Honey collection is available now.
