Loving & Learning at L'Occitane!


This week I attended my first blogging event - the #bhmbloggermeet with L'Occitane! I have to firstly do a shout out and say thanks to Abbigayle and the L'Occitane team for hosting a fantastic event. I have loved L'Occitane since my husband first bought me the Pivoine Flora hand cream (£14, 75ml) a few years ago. The scent is of Peony and my hands were left feeling so soft, so I was thrilled when I found out the event was in association with the brand.

The event started out with introductions, and I was very excited to meet some fellow beauty bloggers! Throughout the event we took part in games, all of which were super fun and allowed us to explore the variety of products they provide. All in all, a fab event!


Fun and games with @sheeba_ali and @sophie_etc

Now, let me talk to you about some of the products I came away with. I bought the Relaxing Pillow Mist (£14 100ml) because, let's face it, as a mother of two, I need my sleep. I was told that the essential oils within the mist cause a natural physiological response that actually relaxes you. As soon as I heard that, I thought 'I need this in my life!' I also bought the Petit Grasse Fragrance Collection (£18 3 x 7.5ml EDT). The scents were so beautiful and I thought these would make great stocking fillers for my sisters. (Let's hope they're not reading this!)

Goody bag products

With my purchases I got a free goody bag, which included lots of products, such as Neroli & Orchidee Body Milk (travel size 50ml £5 or 250ml £20), which gives off a very floral/fruity scent - the kind of scent everyone loves - and smells divine. Another product included in the goody bag was the Almond Shower Oil (£18 250ml or £26, 250ml refill). I was particularly excited to see this in there, as I had a demo of it whilst at the event and the smell was gorgeous and left the skin feeling so soft!

To my surprise, as the event came to a close, I was named winner of the a competition to caption a Christmas cake. My winning message was 'Merry Blogmas & a great new year!' and I was so happy with my prize, as I had been eyeing it up earlier as a potential purchase!


Tinted Lip Balm trio prize.

The Pivoine Sublime Tinted Lip Balm Trio (£30 3x 4g) is a beautiful gift set of three lip balms, two of which are tinted with colour. I love these so much that I will be doing a separate post on this product, so watch this space! (Click here to view) Needless to say, the smell is gorgeous and the texture on the lips is beautiful. Aren't I a lucky girl?!

All the products I came away with!


Have you ever tried any L'Occitane products? Which are your favourites? I would love to hear your comments!
