It feels like I have been using all those melting cleansers and cleansing balms for ages now. I don’t even remember when I did use something different, and really enjoyed it.

But today I want to tell you about such product, and it’s L’Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam. I actually got it as a gift with purchase after buying quite a few products from L’Occitane.

L'Occitane Brightening Cleansing Foam Review

And I can’t believe how much I like it. First of all it smells amazing ( is it immortelle floral water that smells so good?), has a very convenient pump which makes it easy to use the product, and has a nice design in general. All these factors make it a pleasure to use such cleanser.

The product feels

Although, I think, my favourite lip balms are liquid, like this Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Elixir which I adore, I still like a good ol’ lip balm.

But it has to be very soft and moisturizing, I hate dry and hard lip balms! When I think of a good one, Fresh Sugar comes to mind, as it is soft, as  butter!

And today I want to tell you about L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm. And it  is actually a nice one. I have been carrying (and using, obviously) it  in my bag for several weeks now.

Luckily, my lips are in a (relatively, they are still dry) good condition now, so  I can’t report on how it deals with the cracks/very dried out lips.

But  I can definitely see that

Since I have very dry skin, body moisturizer is a must have for me, otherwise my skin feels tight and looks patchy.

Today I want to show you the product that I have been using quite a lot recently - L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion.

The texture is light and non-sticky  so it absorbs very quickly, at least this is the case with me. Besides shea butter, it also contains  natural honey and apricot oil which moisturize the skin and leave it smooth and soft.

However, for the cold season I find that

The only beauty related product that I’ve asked for these holidays was the Body Shop  body butter but I’ve actually received two L’Occitane sets which was a total surprise.

So today I would like to  tell you about the brand’s Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner for Dry & Damaged Hair which I’ve got as a part of Escape to Provence set. I am not sure if you can still get it and  about the price, as it was a gift.

These are actually the best-sellers from the brand. And,  although I am not the best candidate to judge the performance of this  range, as my hair is not dry & damaged, I still want to share my impression.

Repairing range is formulated with five essential oils of a natural vegetable origin:  angelica, lavender, geranium, patchouli, ylang-ylang and also wheat proteins.

Both shampoo and conditioner  smell amazing and are a pleasure to use!  My hair looks  and feels shiny, soft and smooth afterwards  it,  but at the same time  it cleanses properly  and the products don’t weight the hair down. And this is exactly what

First of all I apologize for the lack of reviews and swatches. I still haven’t bought a camera. I plan on getting two cameras – one a purse friendly “simple” camera, something like Nikon S3100 or S5100 and one pro camera.

For some reason I find it so hard to choose what I want/need but I promise to get it at the end of this week/beginning of next one.

I have so many new exciting products to show you so can’t wait to get a camera. Luckily, I have some photos  I’ve taken before my camera was gone.

I don’t want this post to be completely off topic so here is a review of the soap which I’ve recently purchased  at L’Occitane.

I never use soaps because of
