The L’OcciBox:  This adorably packaged beauty sample box offers you the opportunity to sample the brand’s latest and greatest products once per season with no annual sign up required! Each season a limited quantity of L’OcciBox is produced with a curated sampling of L’OCCITANE products and an exclusive gift from a special partner. Box #1 was a huge hit with L'Occitane fans. Now, Box #2 is available. These sell out quick, so snatch one up if you can. It is an amazing box!!!

L'OcciBox Box #2 Box Opening: Lets see what is inside this *adorably packaged* beauty box:

Box # 2 Contents:
  • Jasmin & Bergamote Eau de Toilette, 1.2 ml: the Jasmine & Bergamote Eau de Toilette offers the fragrance of a delicate flower blossoming in the light of dawn. Revealing the many facets of the jasmine flower, this eau de toilette blends absolutes from Grasse and Egypt. The addition of bergamot essential oil from Italy balances this floral fragrance with fruity notes.
  • Immortelle Precious Serum, 7ml: This serum offers the patented anti-aging power of more than 1000 flowers in every jar.Its lightly textured formula helps to protect and restore the skin’s luster with the power of Immortelle, a flower with exceptional longevity that never fades, even after being picked.
  • Immortelle Brightening Essence Sample, 1mlL: This essence combines the "flower so flight"-Immortelle and Bellisperennis-to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, to help even out skin tone and illuminate the complexion. The reformulated serum helps to diminish the appearance of wrinkles while making the complexion more even-toned and brighter thanks to its ultra-concentrated formula.

  • Shea Butter Hand Cream, 10ml: Sold once every three seconds world-wide, this hand cream is enriched with 20% shea butter and penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize hands. The rich texture leaves hands soft and smooth with no oily traces, and can be applied as often as needed. Considered a “beauty must-have” by many, this “life-changing” hand cream is essential for home, work and on-the-go.
  • 1 Shea Whipped Hand Cream, 30ml The Shea Butter Whipped Hand Cream has a playful yet smooth texture. Made with a high concentration of shea butter (25%), it helps to nourish, protect and soften the skin.
  • Bonne Mere Rose Soap, 3.5oz: The Bonne Mere Rose Soap gently cleanses the skin without drying. Our formula contains a sustainable and eco-friendly palm oil. The result is pampered, soft, supple and lightly scented skin.
  • 1 cube of Sugarfina Champagne Bears®: Infused with the flavors of exquisite French champagne ,these effervescent little bears are spiked with a bit of the bubbly. As cute as they are chic, you'll have a hard time choosing a favorite between classic Brut and fashionable Rose.*
I certainly try out a LOT of beauty sample boxes and let me tell you, the L'OcciBox Box is extremely well done! From the beautiful packaging to the adorable goodies inside, it is an adorable luxury beauty treat! The box retails for $20 and has a value of over $50 in products inside! Plus, I am totally going to re-use/up-cycle this cute box for something! :) 

Mother's Day Gift Sets:
L'Occitane is offering beautifully packaged and ready to gift sets just in time for Mother's Day! Prices range from $21 to $186. These pre-packaged gift sets really make your Mother's Day shopping easy! I tried out a couple of the sets and think they are beautiful: well selected products, lovely scents, great value, and beautifully packaged! From fragrance, to skincare, to bath & body products, I am sure you will find something
  • Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc Gift ($78): transport Mom to the fragrant gardens of Grasse, France with this new Spring Collection Gift Set! Cultivated by traditional and passionate experts in the region, the NEW Iris Bleu & Iris Blanc fragrance boasts the velvetly rich notes of the Blue Iris Flower combined with the luminous and transparent notes of White Iris. This precious set includes an Iris Blue & Blanc Eau de Toilette, Shower Gel, and Body Milk (all full sizes).  I immediately fell in love with the understated subtleness of this fragrance! It is a very easy-to-wear scent that, while floral, just reminds me of smelling clean and fresh
  • Roses et Reines Collection ($72): Known as the flower of Queens, Mom will love the delicate and subtle fragrance revealed in this elegant rose collection. The set includes a Roses et Reines Eau de Toilette, Bath & Shower Gel, Hand & Nail Cream, Body Milk, and Bonne Mere Soap (all full sized). Lovers of Rose scents, you must check out this fragrance! Roses will forever remind me of my Mom. They are her favorite flower and favorite scent. I am going to give her this gift set for Mother's Day and I just know that she will adore it! 
L'Occitane's NEW Peony Collection: 
This is re-launch and re-envisioning of L'Occitane's popular and classic Peony Flower (Pivione Florale) fragrance into a new complete collection of fragrance, skin perfecting, and body care items. The packaging was re-designed and L'Occitane cosmetics (yes, makeup!!!) is introduced with this range! :) 

This fragrance and collection focuses on the perfection of the rare and lovely Peony flower. The plant-based products contain L'Occitane's proprietary Peony Perfecting Complex (patent-pending). This includes peony extract as well as mineral-based correctors. 

Key Ingredients:
  • Peony Extract: derived from the bulb of the plant, this extract helps to visibly correct skin texture irregularities.
  • Hyaluronic Acid: actively works to hydrate and help plump the skin.
  • Chestnut Extract: helps reduce the appearance of complexion irregularities and promote a fresh glow.
  • Mineral-Based Pigments and Pearlizers: multi-dimensional pigments use light-reflecting properties to minimize the appearance of imperfections while pearlizers give skin a translucent rosey glow. 
  • Natural Powders: delivers and instant smoothing effect on the skin.  
I tried a few items from this new collection. I adore the fragrance and have really been loving the skincare/makeup additions! :) 
  • Pivione Sublime Perfecting Mist ($24): This mult-purpose hydrating mist can be used at any time of the day for a boost of hydration: after cleansing as a toner (love using it this way!), as a setting spray after makeup application, and throughout the day as a refresher! The formula moisturizes "up to 8 hours". I do find it very hydrating and soothing to use. 
  • Pivione Sublime Tinted Lip Balms ($16 each): Yes, L'Occitane has makeup in this collection. Yay for tinted lip balms! Four shades are available: Rose, Amber, Plum, and Sheer. They are gorgeously packaged and super slim and sleek for easy carrying (I always end up sticking lipbalms in pockets and such). Added bonus? SPF 25 included which makes these perfect for Summertime wear! 
  • Pivione Flora Fragrance Eau de Toilette ($50): This is such a light, fresh, and ultra feminine fragrance. From the gorgeous packaging to some of my favorite fragrance notes (Freesia and Peony with Musk), this is a girlie flirty treat to wear. Top Notes: Black Currant, Bergamot & Pink Pepper. Heart Notes: Peony & Freesia, and Base Notes: White Musk, Sandalwood & Peach.  
There is no doubt, L'Occitane has a gorgeous assortment of new items and special edition gift sets that would be perfect for Mother's Day! I know that I would love any combination of these for a gift and I will enjoy treating my Mom, as well, to some L'Occitane treats! What has caught your eye from L'Occitane's Spring assortment?
