L'Occitane En Provence Fleur D'or & Acacia ~ #2013ChristmasGiftGuide & #Review

There is one hand cream I absolutely love and it is by L'Occitane.  There is one location that is a short walk from my husband's office and I told him to shop there if he was thinking of purchasing me a present.  I told him there are hand creams I would love to have from that store, and once he did finally remember and bought me one.  However that is a distance memory and hoping for another purchase from him.

As I wait for my husband to clue in how much I love L'Occitane.  I discovered that L'Occitane has launched a new collection, Fleur D'or & Acacia recently.  This collection is created by Karine Dubreuil, perfumer for L'Occitane, has a scent of musky floral.

I had the opportunity to try the Shimmering Shower Gel and the hand cream.  When the package came in the mail I immediately tried the hand cream.  My hands screamed "OMG" it is so good and creamy.

Of course L'Occitane has never let me down because I crave their hand creams.  One of the best hand creams in my collection.  I love to put these in my purse because they are small and great for on the go.  I love the scent and the cream goes on smoothly and it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin hydrated and matte finished.  I wish these scented hand creams comes in a bigger size too.  I can't get enough of it.  My little 30ml might be finished in matter of days...

The shower gel is a nice treat.  I love the smell when I was in the shower.  The scent relaxes and calms me.  It is not harsh and once I was toweled off and dry it only left a just a hint of scent.  I never noticed any shimmer left on my skin.  After I rinse off the gel and it drys off, it didn't get left behind.  My skins feels nice and smooth.  I felt wonderful after the shower.

The Fleur D'or & Acacia collection consist of:
Eau de Toilette (75ml, $75), Body Milk (175ml, $24), Shimmering Shower Gel (175ml, $20), Hand Cream (30ml, $12), Sparkling Lip Gloss (15ml, $18), Perfumed Soap (50g, $6)

This collection has been released so that you have enough time to include this under their Christmas tree this year.  This would be perfect Christmas gift for someone who love bath and body products like me (hehehe), mothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, mother in law, or even a grandmother.  I am hoping to see another L'Occitane hand cream in my stocking...
