L’Occitane Anniversary Giveaway: 40 Years, 40 Prizes!

l'occitane 40th anniversary giveaway

I have a rather special giveaway for you; as part of their 40th Anniversary celebrations, gorgeous beauty brand L’Occitane have forty prizes to give away to UK readers of A Model Recommends. And that’s not all: the forty winners will be able to pick their own prize! They can choose any one product from L’Occitane, whether that’s a simple bar of soap or a pot of luxury cream.

I have to say that I’d be really stuck if I was asked to pick one product from L’Occitane; I’m a habitual user of the Almond Milk Concentrate Cream (an unctuous, beautifully scented body treat) but the Divine Cream for face would be very high up on my list – it’s a little pot of luxury.

Or there’s the set of special editions that have been given a makeover to mark the brand’s 40th – the Verbena Eau de Toilette with its pretty new box, the Lavender Foaming Bath with its decorative bottle, the rough cut soaps with their crushed lavender and verbena pieces…

My Beauty Interview in Canary Wharf Magazine

canary wharf magazine

I am absolutely terrible at keeping track of interviews and little features that I’ve done. I do collect the clippings and links, but actually the most efficient way of archiving them is to pop them into the website and so here’s my latest Q&A, recorded for posterity. It’s for the very glossy and lovely Canary Wharf magazine, and you can read the full pages online by clicking here. It’s on pages 64 and 65. I thought that the questions they asked were very good, at the time, and they’ve written the answers up as little “soundbites” – I like their style.

July Favourites

July favourites, including a response to some of the comments on my Best Budget Foundations video and one new product that I just don’t get. I don’t usually include dislikes in my favourites videos (mainly because they are supposed to be about things I love) but this particular product really took me by surprise.

You’ll have to click play to find out what it is – as usual all of the products are listed below the video pane. Enjoy!
