L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam

Had 2 of these 50mL/1.7fl oz. pump bottles of L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam from 2 separate gift sets, the Brighten Up Collection and the Divine Secret Collection. I ended up using only one and gave the other to my mum.

This is a cleansing liquid scented with the same crushed dandelion scent as the other Immortelle products, which doesn't bother me. It foams a little bit when pump through the foaming dispenser, although the foam itself is very thin, if at all foamy. While the cleanser is decent I needed about 4 pumps each time for an adequate wash of my neck/decolletage and face, and between my husband and I we went through this bottle in about 3 weeks! The thing is, 4 pumps are what I needed but they leave my skin slightly dry, and if I were to use any less, say 3 pumps, my face just doesn't feel clean. What's up with that? :(

L'Occitane Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash Part II

After the last success of L'Occitane Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash Milk I caved and gave the Honey one a try too. 

It's just as gentle as the Milk one, although doesn't smell anywhere as nice and soothing. This Honey one smells like perfumed honey, very flowery and cloying at the same time. I don't hate the scent, but I much prefer the Milk. I'm glad I bought backups of the Milk body wash as well as the Gentle Cream. Love that stuff!

See my previous L'Occitane Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash post.

L'Occitane Hand Creams Part III

So I've gone through another score of L'Occitane Hand Creams, keeping a tube in different bags (handbag, gym bag, book bag, etc.). Here they are in a short list, though not in any specific order.

- Winter Rose Hand Cream: a soft rosy scent that's surprisingly pleasant, mild yet lingers for quite a long while. I was at a conference for a week where I had to handle lots of paperwork and therefore constantly got alligator hands. Good thing I brought this tube with me, because it gave almost instant relief to the dryness and discomfort. And then one morning my colleague asked me discreetly, "Hey, what perfume are you wearing? It smells really nice." I shook my head, "I'm not wearing any perfume," and she looked at me, confused, "Really?" Then I remember I had put on some of this hand cream an hour ago and held up my hand to her, "Is this what you're smelling? It's just a hand cream." She smelled my hand and nodded, "Yup, that's it!"

All nice and good, but there is one thing I don't like about this hand cream - it has shimmers in it. I actually didn't notice at all, until the afternoon sun shined in over the conference's glass roof one day and I saw that my nails were shimmery. I did a double take and finally realized my whole two hands were shimmery! Yeah, no. But other than that, I like this hand cream very much!

L'Occitane Red Rice Exfoliating Rice Powder

After Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser, I started using this 50g/1.7oz. L'Occitane Red Rice Exfoliating Rice Powder. I actually picked this up while in Seattle for a family wedding 2 years ago but totally forgot about it as I headed straight back to Japan afterwards :X So this exfoliator is actually quite old and long discontinued. And of course, I LOVE it T.T

L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate

Found yet another favorite for body in this L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate. I had a 50mL/1.7oz travel size from the Almond Voyage Set and I'm so glad I didn't give it away as it was love at first sniff!

This is a super light body cream with the texture of fat free Yoplait and the scent of almond heaven! Wow. I'd gone through 2 bars of the Almond Exfoliating Soap and the tube of Almond Hand Cream and loved both (will review soon), but this Almond Milk Concentrate smells even better than those two!

L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Beauty Milk

Last of the L'Occitane stuff, I think... I do like this Pivoine Flora Beauty Milk very much! It is supposed to be paired with the Shower Gel and I gave away one of my two pairs from the Pivoine Flora Spring Set and the Brighten Up Collection GWP to my cousin J.

L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Shower Gel

Almost done with the L'Occitane bath and body ^.^ This is the 75mL/2.5fl oz. travel size bottle of the Pivoine Flora Shower Gel. I have two of these, one from the Pivoine Flora Spring Set and one from the Brighten Up Collection I got as GWP. I ended up giving one, along with the Pivoine Flora Beauty Milk (will review next) to complete the pair, to my cousin J. when she visited me in March.

Pivoine Flora Spring Set, which includes 75mL/2.5fl oz. each of this Shower Gel and Beauty Milk, 1oz. Hand Cream, and 100g/3.5oz. Rose Bonne Mere Soap (will review later).

L'Occitane Spring Cherry Velvet Moisturizing Gel

This 75mL/2.5fl oz. L'Occitane Spring Cherry Velvet Moisturizing Gel is to be paired with the Iridescent Shower Gel, both from the Springtime Cherry Collection I bought a few months ago in spring. I have to say I like it much better than the shower gel, because at least it moisturizes my skin, even if a little.

L'Occitane Spring Cherry Iridescent Shower Gel

Almost done with this 75mL/2.5fl oz. travel size bottle of L'Occitane Spring Cherry Iridescent Shower Gel from the Springtime Cherry Collection this past spring.

The Springtime Cherry Collection comes with 75mL/2.5fl oz. each of this Iridescent Shower Gel, Velvet Moisturizing Gel, which I will review next, 50g/1.7oz. Spring Cherry Soap, and a 1oz. Spring Cherry Hand Cream.

L'Occitane Verdon Spring Set

Bought this L'Occitane Verdon Spring Set for hubby to try and immediately regretted it the moment I opened the box. This Verdon line is strongly scented with woodsy manly cologne. Sounds nice, only it's way to overpowering, as if someone poured an entire bottle of cologne into these products. It makes me wonder if L'Occitane thinks men stinks in general and need this much help in escaping their evolutionary residual caveman aroma. Urgh. 

Verdon Spring Set, which includes a 100mL Invigorating Shave in an aerosol can, 50mL/1.7fl oz. Fresh Water Shower, 15mL/0.5fl oz. Energy Moisturizer in a squeeze tube, and 100g/3.5oz. bar of Verdon Soap.

L'Occitane Ruban d'Orange Sunny Shower

Next up is the 30mL/1fl oz. bottle of L'Occitane Ruban d'Orange Sunny Shower, also from the same French Travel Treasures Set. It is to be paired with the Ruban d'Orange Soft Skin Milk, which I gave away to mum in law long ago.

L'Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Shower Gel

Among the dozen of travel size bottles of body wash in my shower is this 35mL/1.18fl oz. L'Occitane Aromachologie Revitalizing Shower Gel. It came from the French Travel Treasures Set and is supposed to be paired with the Aromachologie Relaxing Body Lotion

L'Occitance Bonne Mere Gentle Cream

I think it's about time to declare some love for this L'Occitance Bonne Mere Gentle Cream Milk ^.^ It all started with the Gentle Body Wash Milk. Even though the scent may be strong for some people, hubby and I like it so much I couldn't wait to try out the cream. I figured since this is an all-purpose cream, if I don't like it on my face, I can always use it on my neck, hands, feet, or just slather it all over myself LOL!

But still I was cautious, buying several 15mL/0.5oz. travel size tubes from Ebay to try first. Turns out this is one of the most gentle all-purpose creams I've ever tried and I fell pretty hard for it upon the first use xD I gave hubby a tube and my mum a tube to try and they too love it! Time to get the full size, pronto!

The Bonne Mere Gentle Cream Milk full size 75mL/2.6oz tube comes with a pretty neat twist cap dispenser that's sealed with a clear sticker for freshness. After this sticker is removed, you just twist the cap to open, squeeze to dispense, and twist again to close. The cap does not come off at all, so there's no worries about dropping it, etc.

L'Occitane Immortelle Essential Water

Been using this travel sized 30mL/1fl. oz. spray bottle of L'Occitane Immortelle Essential Water as toner/pre-moisturizer on my neck and d├ęcolletage (why not?). I have two bottles, both were freebies from GWPs Divine Secret Collection below and Brighten Up Collection. Will probably give the second bottle to mum as I'm ready to move on.

See below screencap for content details of the Divine Secret Collection.

L'Occitane Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash

After the Green Tea Shower Gel let down, and I was pretty wary and was frankly hesitant of trying more of the L'Occitane stack I had just bought. I go through phases like that, and then I quickly got bored of the travel sized body washes (there are about a dozen) in my shower and added this Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash to the lineup.

L'Occitane Marvelous Flowers Voyage Kit

Bought this L'Occitane Marvelous Flowers Voyage Kit for my mum on mother's day, and with her permission I opened it up for a few pictures ^.^ My mum loves it, but again these were too strongly scented for me. Just taking pictures of them were enough to make me never want to use them LOL!

The kit includes a 75mL/2.5fl oz. Shower Gel, 30mL/1oz. Hand Cream, and 50g/1.7oz. Perfumed Soap.

L'Occitane Cherry Princess Silky Body Gel

Like the L'Occitane Cherry Princess Pearlescent Shower Cream, the Silky Body Gel is also very strongly scented - the parfum/fragrance is pretty high up in the list of ingredients!

The Cherry Princess Romantic Escape Gift Set includes 75mL/2.5fl oz. each of the said Pearlescent Shower Cream, this Silky Body Gel, 30mL/1oz. Hand Cream, and 10g/0.3oz. Solid Perfume which I gave to my mum.
