The L'Occitane Festive Shea Bergamot Collection

(Features press samples - see disclaimer)

When it comes to beauty at Christmas, one brand that always does it so well is L'Occitane and the twist on the much loved Shea collection 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 Shea Bergamot Collection features a handful of products that will keep skin soft, well moisturised and smelling gorgeous. Each of the products are made using shea butter as well as a blend of almond, honey and coconut oil for added nourishment - the invigorating citrus scent of bergamot just gives it that little bit extra!

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. 

With COVID taking the limelight this year, constant hand washing has meant I've relied on hand cream even more than I usually would so some festive fancies from L'Occitane have been very welcome.

The Shea Bergamot Light Hand Cream (£21.50) is a great twist on an old favourite. It's the classic shea butter formula with the subtle perfume of Bergamot giving it its citrus scent. 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 Shea Bergamot Shower Foam (£15.00) has to be my favourite product from the collection which is no surprise to me as I loved the Festive Garden version from 2019. 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 with the fresh scent of bergamot 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 Shea Bergamot Ultra Light Body Cream (£32.00) is the dreamiest body cream I've used in ages. I find that L'Occitane just nail post-shower products for me and they never disappoint. The body cream combines the nourishing properties of a balm with the light formula of a mousse to create this ultra whipped cream to moisturise the skin. It's made with 5% shea butter and that all-important dose of bergamot.

I really notice my skin getting dryer this time of year this has been a dream to use. As a huge bergamot fan, I cannot get enough of the scent!

Another fab product I wanted to show you from the Shea Bergamot Collection is the Shea Bergamot Extra-Gentle Soap (£5.00). 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, it's super creamy so foams and cleanses well and you have that beautiful fragrance of bergamot again. 

It would make a great stocking filler.

Lastly is the Shea Bergamot Lip Balm (£8.00), enriched with 5% Shea butter, this creamy balm helps to nourish and protect lips while enveloping them with a subtle scent of bergamot. It has not left my side!

I've lost count of how many times I've mentioned Bergamot on my blog over the years, it is one of my favourite scents and I can sniff it out in anything so the Shea Bergamot collection couldn't be more perfect for me. It's such a brilliant collection of products that I'm sure anyone would be happy to see under the Christmas tree this year.
