Get Christmassy with L'Occitane Festive Garden

When it comes to beauty at Christmas, one brand that always does it so well is L'Occitane and the Festive Garden range is at the top of my recommendation list if you're looking for something beautifully festive for a loved one this Christmas or ya know, for yourself. 

The Limited Edition Festive Garden Collection features a handful of products that will keep skin soft, well moisturised and smelling gorgeous. Each of the products are made using responsibly sourced green mandarin from Brazil and ylang-ylang flowers from the Comoros Islands so you can just imagine how great they smell. Spoiler - bloody fabulous!

It's a really great collection of products and skin will not know nourishment like it.

I've only started to appreciate hand cream in recent years, constant hand washing from nappy changes will do that to you and I have relied heavily on L'Occitane for hand cream. My favourite and the one I use daily is the Shea Butter Hand Cream (£21.50), it has won countless awards and for good reason, it's absolutely brilliant and leaves my hands feeling so loved again. 

The Festive Garden Hand Cream (£21.50) is a great twist on an old favourite. It's the classic shea butter formula with the subtle perfume of green mandarin and ylang-ylang. Its whipped texture helps thoroughly nourish and soften skin and the packaging means you get every last bit out of the tube.

I'd love to find one of these under the Christmas tree.

The Festive Garden Shower Foam (£16.50) has to be my favourite product from the collection. The creamy, moisturising shower foam has a unique texture that envelopes skin into a nourishing hug, softly cleansing skin. It is enriched with shea and is subtly perfumed much like the rest of the collection.

It's great for shaving your legs as the foam helps guide you and it leaves your legs super soft!

For an after shower treat, the Festive Garden Fabulous Oil (£26.00) is the dreamiest oil I've used in yonks. I find that L'Occitane just nail post-shower products for me and once I run out of this I'm going to have to find a standard line alternative because my skin feels incredible.

I really notice my skin getting dryer this time of year but a few spritz of this, paying special attention to elbows and knees means I have soft, nourished skin that smells delightful. I cannot get enough of the Festive Garden scent, the green mandarin and ylang-ylang flowers are a match made in heaven.

The final product I wanted to show you from the Festive Garden Collection is the Festive Garden Scented Soap (£8.00). We've switched back to soap from handwash pump bottles so we can combat our waste so something like this is a great gift for someone wanting to reduce their waste too. 

The gorgeous scented soap is formulated with a botanical cleansing base and free of palm oil, it's also enriched with shea, super creamy so foams and cleanses well and you have that beautiful fragrance of green mandarin and ylang-ylang again. 

It would make a great stocking filler.

There are eight products available within the Festive Garden collection, including two gift sets which would make the perfect gift this Christmas.

I'm an L'Occitane Verbena girl through and through but Festive Garden has just knocked it off the top spot!
