SPONSORED: It’s that wonderful time of the year for giving. Finding the perfect gift and wrapping it to perfection has become a yearly ritual we all enjoy and love. However, many of us have also grown increasingly concerned on what environmental impact all the glittering packaging has on our planet – especially in the beauty sphere.

If you’re looking to make a conscious purchase this season that will also make that someone special in you life, then look no further than L’Occitane. The luxury French brand has cleverly created three stunning ranges for the holiday season.

The Honey Harvest, Classic Shea and Festive Garden collections alternate between orange, blue and pink. There are lip balms, body creams, hand creams and even some new products, such as The Petit Cleanser soap with shea to choose from. 

Making their products appealing yet environmentally friendly is a challenge that L’Occitane is very happy to take on. Not only have they improved their packaging, but they continue to protect and highlight up to 350 varieties of plants from their regions. Their aim is to achieve 1,000 by 2025.

Now that L’Occitane is definitely going on your shopping list, the next step is to choose the perfect range for you.

Honey Harvest Collection


This limited edition range is made with extracts of lavender honey and produced by L’Occitane’s certified- organic beekeepers. Not only does lavender honey offer a rich and smooth texture, the scent filled with floral notes is extremely relaxing.  The collection includes hand cream, lip balm, body cream, solid soap and shimmery bath pearls.

Classic Shea collection


The much-loved range has been given a festive makeover thanks to award-winning illustrator Hsinping Pan. The six products have been decorated in deep, festive blue decorated with colourful pictures. Our top pick is the brand-new The Petit Cleanser hand soap that’s made with 10% lipid-replenishing shea oil. It’s particularly great for those who suffer with dry skin.

Festive Garden collection


This range is also limited edition and thanks to responsibly sourced green mandarin from Brazil and ylang-ylang flowers from the Comoros Islands, the products actually smell like Christmas. It is available in a form of Eau de Toilette, solid soap, light hand cream, perfumed body oil, ultra light cream and our personal top pick – the fluffy shower foam. 

We are hoping to find one of these goodies under our Christmas tree.
