Is it too early to whisper the word “Christmas”, probably but before you are inundated with countless gift guides, I want to quickly draw your attention towards a great gift with a difference; L’Occitane x Unicef – a trio of wonderful bath and body treats in which £10 of each sale goes directly to Unicef. Now who you happen to bestow said suggestion upon is entirely up to you, maybe it is a loved one or maybe that person is yourself, zero judgement from me.
L’Occitane are renowned for their charitable endeavours and this recent collaboration is probably one of their mightiest to date, with no less than £10 from each £29 purchase going straight to Unicef to provide Vitamin A supplements to prevent childhood blindness. It is a great cause and with the festive season right around the corner it is also a great opportunity to grab a gift or two whilst helping others in need – a win/win situation if ever there was one.
In my mind, the L’Occitane x Unicef Gift Sets are the perfect gift for those in your life that perhaps travel a lot (the products are perfectly sized for such occasions) and/or those who enjoy the little luxuries in life. On a more personal note, this is also the perfect opportunity to try out a L’Occitane range that you’ve perhaps had your eye on for a while with next to no commitment (nor guilt).
As mentioned, there are three L’Occitane Gift Sets to chose from:
L’Occitane Botanicals Scents Collection £29 (worth £32) – link.
A beautiful green box full of botanical treats centred around two cult L’Occitane fragrances: Verbena and Herbae for a lush and aromatic sensory experience. Neatly presented such box is: 70ml Verbena Shower Gel, 75g Verbena Soap, 50ml Herbae par L’Occitane Body Milk, 30ml Herbae par L’Occitane Hand Cream and 5ml Herbae par L’Occitane Eau de Parfum. This is perhaps the most adventurous option out of the trio and one I would recommend to those that enjoy fresher and more uplifting fragrances.
L’Occitane Delicate Petals Collection £29 (worth £32) – link.
Soft, powdery and gently floral is how I would sum up the two fragrances that help to make up the L’Occitane Delicate Petals Collection. A beautiful combination of L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere and L’Occitaine Neroli & Orchidee products are nestled into the super pretty, pink hat box. The contents are as follows: 5ml Terre de Lumière L’Eau Eau de Toilette, 75g Terre de Lumière L’Eau Perfumed Soap, 50ml Terre de Lumière Shower Gel, 50ml Néroli & Orchidée Body Milk and 30ml Néroli & Orchidée Hand Cream.
L’Occitane Cocooing Comforts Collection £29 (worth £32) – link.
I’ve yet to met a person who has tried the now iconic L’Occitane Almond collection and not all but instantly became a fan. As you may have guessed, the striking blue box contains an assortment of Almond scented products, alongside a few key Shea Butter treats too, If you are partial to dry skin this is the one for you: 75ml Almond Shower Oil, 30ml Shea Butter Hand Cream, 12ml Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm, 20ml Almond Milk Concentrate and 50g Almond Delicious Soap.
As mentioned above all of the L’Occitane x Unicef gift sets do costs £29 each but £10 of each sale does go directly to Unicef to help prevent childhood blindness, making this so much more than a beautiful gift under the tree.
