Beauty Love: L'Occitane

Beauty Loves
One of my beauty splurges is L'Occitane. These beauty products have a rich texture and smell delicious. They make great gifts, and the bath soaps add a touch of sophistication to any bathroom. My favorite product, and the one that draws in compliments, is the lavender hand creme. The lavender scent is subtle and it lasts for hours. It is the perfect cure to dry hands. Since this line is a bit pricier than other beauty products, I only use it on special occasions and buy it for my closest friends.

What beauty line is your splurge?

Here are pictures I took at my local L'Occitane store.

  3. I've never been there before but clearly need to find one STAT. I splurge on... More than I should. Let's leave it at that. And cupcake, how was I not following you? This is a travesty which I plan to correct immediately.

  4. This store is amazing! I don't have anything from there right now but after this post, I want to sprint to it right away!

    My beauty splurge is definitely Dior's makeup. I can't get enough of it...Oh, and Sephora. My bank account hurts when I go in there!

    Great blog! Just started following!

  5. Ooh I love L'Occitane too! Such beautiful and decadent scents unlike any other :) My favorite is the Green Tea collection - I have a bottle of the eau de toillete and it's amazingly refreshing! My fave scent for the summer!

    I don't really have a beauty splurge of my own - but I do get a bit of La Mer face cream from my mom (so i guess it's really her splurge that I get to benefit from). It's such a hydrating cream, I only use it at night and my skin always feels and looks amazing the next day :)

  14. I have to admit I tend to splurge on Fresh products ranging from bath to body.

    I haven't tried L'Occitane, but have always been interested. Maybe the lavender hand creme would be a good start. Thanks!

  16. I've never bought any of their stuff....
    Really, I don't spend that much on beauty products. I have a chanel lipstick, and that's about it!

  17. LOVE L'Occitane! One of my favorites, I used to live down the block from the store in NYC and I went in there all the time! Not only do I like their products but their packaging is so beautiful!

  19. I've actually never tried L'Occitane (I know, shocking, right?). Everyone loves it though, so I better get with the program and check it out. I splurge on Ole Henriksen or Caudalie mostly. But I switch around a lot and try new things, so this will be next on my list!

  20. Oooo la la. I haven't heard of this product. I am a splurger on fragrance. And I have to admit it changes every time! I like to explore the world of scents.

  21. L'Occtaine seems like a great splurge choice :) Mine is Givenchy -- I looooooove their lipglosses, but at 25 bucks a pop, it's definitely a special occasion buy (not even "blog research" can justify that!).

  22. I've never tried this brand before, but I am such a sucker for hand soaps... I don't even use them really, but I like to use them as a clean smelling air freshner. I may have to check them out =)
