L'Occitane Holiday Collection-8

When we think of L’Occitane products, we not only consider the quality of their ingredients but the in-store service experience as well. Even during these pandemic times, you’re still welcome to test their out skincare, wellness and fragrance items.

During a recent visit to one of their Vancouver boutiques, I was introduced to a couple of hand care products (via a self mini hand treatment) and discovered two nourishing shea butter items to consider for our winter at-home ritual: Intensive Hand Balm and One-Minute Hand Scrub, great to give as a gift duo.

Mathilde Cabanas

This season, the French luxury brand launched a recycled aluminum Shea Butter Hand Cream tube with a limited-edition design by French illustrator Mathilde Cabanas. And speaking of sustainability, did you know that you can bring in used beauty and skincare containers – even non-L’Occitane ones – for a 10% discount on your next L’Occitane item?

They’ll accept everything from lip balm and hand cream tubes, facial cleanser and body lotion bottles, hair care packaging such as pumps and caps from shampoo and conditioner, plus refill pouches. All will go into a bin to be recycled off-site.

For every purchase of L’Occitane’s best-selling collections through December 25, a dollar will be donated to One Tree Planted to preserve biodiversity and to help the environment by planting trees.

From L’Occitane’s charming advent calendars to new Rose Calisson Gel Perfume, we’ve got some ideas for everyone on your list.

L'Occitane Holiday Collection-3

Lavender Collection

Inside this simply illustrated holiday box are five lavender products, three of them full-sized and two ideal for travel. Spray Cocon de Sérénité Pillow Mist before going to sleep to breathe in a relaxing combination of geranium, mandarin, lavender, sweet orange and bergamot.

We also enjoy spraying this in the room when we’re winding down from a day at our home office. The lavender essential oil-infused exfoliating soap contains almond shell powder to help soften your skin as you massage it in to remove dead skin cells.

L'Occitane Holiday Collection-5

Another popular lavender essential, L’Occitane’s Lavender Body Lotion, contains shea butter but in a lighter formula for all-over body moisture, this one in a handy 75ml size. The Lavender Foaming Bath is ideal for winter months when a hot soak relaxes our muscles before bedtime. A little tube of Lavender Hand Cream tucks into a purse or backpack for a soothing top-up on the go. CAD $89 (valued at $100); USD $79 (valued at $88.50)

L'Occitane Holiday Collection-6

Hand Cream Collection

Also ready to gift in a red holiday box, L’Occitane’s included six of their popular hand creams to nourish year-round. The set includes 30ml versions of Verbena Cooling Hand Cream, Almond Delicious Hands, Cherry Blossom, Rose, Shea Butter and Lavender.

L’Occitane regularly sells these travel-friendly sized hand creams individually, but this boxed set includes a good range for gift-giving. CAD/USD $54 (valued at $72)

Signature Advent Calendar

This year, L’Occitane is offering two advent calendars, with two price points and assortments. We found it hard to decide which of the two would be better to showcase, as each offers a great selection of product, so we felt it best to show what each advent calendar contains. Not only do these make lovely gifts but the recipient can discover some new faves before committing to full sizes!

Tradition des 13 Desserts Home Perfume

The French have a winter tradition of sharing 13 desserts with their guests in an act of generosity and warmth. L’Occitane’s new 13 Desserts Home Perfume is a hearty mix of dried fruit, cinnamon and sweet orange, to infuse your home with a sweet and fruity holiday atmosphere. A couple of sprays will linger for awhile, so you don’t need to use much.

The royal red and gold label evokes the holiday spirit, so it’s perfect to wrap as a hostess gift or stocking stuffer. CAD/USD $34
