L'Occitane sent me a bottle of their Verbena Body Lotion recently. I'd never heard of this company before seeing a YouTuber talk about in one of her videos. She said she'd been so fond of the sample sizes in a bed and breakfast place she'd stayed at that she had to visit the nearby boutique and buy some to take home. I looked them up online and found they are a French company but have boutiques all over the world. (None near my, like all good things. *sigh*) I contacted them and asked if they ever sent out samples, and they sent me a whole dang bottle. Nice!
As for the lotion . . . I *love* this stuff. The scent, being verbena, is obviously lemony. It's not a fake lemon cleaner type. There is more of a 'green' note, but also reminds me of lemonade in it's sweetness. And it's quite strongly scented. Not overpowering, but you definitely smell it for a while after applying it.
Described on the website as a lightweight lotion, I would say it has a medium consistency but yes, does feel light on the skin. It's spreads very easy and absorbs super quick. There is no greasy after-feel. Even using it on my hands has been wonderful, and I usually have thicker, heavier lotions for that.
This 8.4 oz. bottle sells for $25.00 on the L'Occitane website. I couldn't believe they'd sent me a whole bottle to try for free! There are many other things on their site that I'd love to try but they are quite pricey, so I'll have to make a wish list and hope for generous gift givers. lol
I would really like to thank L'Occitane for providing me with the opportunity to try this product. I wasn't sure what to expect when I'd heard it was high-end boutique and coming from France, but I am impressed and really do like it.
Are you familiar with L'Occitane? What products have you tried? I'd love to hear about it!
