[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] While new supplies of the Cloud are in production, due mid-February, it’s a good time to look at the new soap launches from L’Occitane. I love a soap over a hand-wash although we seem to have quite a lot of washes at the moment. I tend to keep soaps for the bathroom and washes everywhere else but can’t really explain why.
My favourites are these Bonne Mere soaps in new scents, Rhubarb & Basil and Rosemary & Clary Sage. They’re well scented with no over-sweetening so rhubarb actually smells like crisp and fresh rhubarb while the Rosemary & Clary sage bar smells properly but smoothly herby. I have to say that the rhubarb predominates for me – I didn’t get much basil but I didn’t really want to so I have no complaints. That’s the block that I’ve put through its paces and the scent intensifies as you use it. The lather is creamy and rich of course using sunflower and coconut oils – and for £6 I feel they’re real treats that look beautiful…nice for little cheer up gifts if you’re feeling like spreading some joy. You can find them HERE, non-affiliate HERE.
A mention too for the annual Solidarity Candle – every year L’Occitane produces a scented candle where all the profits go to UNICEF to treat and prevent blindness around the world. I love the way that each candle purchase translates to a year’s worth of Vitamin A for a child (a vitamin deficiency is one of the leading causes of blindness internationally) who needs it.
It’s a gentle vanilla scent that’s both warm and soothing and costs £8 HERE.
