I've tried every skincare going and still trying to find the right one. Was wondering whether anyone here had tried L'Occitane and your opinion of it please?

Have only used Shea hand cream, which is fantastic. I also had some of their Rose 4 Reines range (which seems to be discontinued now): perfume and body lotion, which was lovely, really nice scent and lasting lotion.

I've used it. It's all lovely. They'll give you samples in the shop if you ask.

I like their lavender hand cream but find their other stuff can have a bit of a chemical scent to it.

I love the Shea butter intensive face cream but it's so bloody expensive. I've recently started using Weleda skin food at night and the white mallow baby cream during the day. They seem to be working!

Very good quality, I do find that the packaging is quite poor quality though. But the products are great quality.

I bought the whipped shea butter handcream. It didn't last a week and was over 10 euro.
A bit steep..... but lovely.

I bought some of moisturisers in a set of 3 travel sized jars from QVC ( blue jar,(Divine) Yellow jar (Immortelle) and a Shea
I love the moisturiser in the blue jar (I think there are a couple of different ones instore)
The one in the yellow jar that has won many awards (that they say smells 'herbal' ) actually smells like pee and mildew hmm
I used it on my neck so it wasn't anywhere near my nose.
The shea was too rich for my face , used on elbows and hands.

I love the soaps , they last really well in normal water, our water is really hard.

Verbena is gorgeous

Honey (they used to do some amazing honey soaps, then honey/lemon, didn't like them sad )

immortale is blue
divine is yellow

it was definately the Yellow one that smelled funny .

The soaps are lovely . Have you tried SBC products ,we have had success with them in our house .

I love their lotions and scents. Haven't tried facial stuff. Have tried hair care and didn't like it, not cleansing enough nor rich enough conditioning.

grin I have just been on another thread talking about the dirty dishcloth Divine Cream!

It gets rave reviews, and I must admit I loved its texture and what it did to my skin, but there's no getting away from that "herbal" twang to it.

The blue pot, Divine Immortelle, is cheaper (slightly) and doesn't have the twang.

The soaps are fab, the creams and handcreams are fab, and the shampoos are lovely.

It's good stuff, and invariably (esp at this time of year) there are loads of codes, and free gifts available.

Though my Holy Grail skincare remains Neal's Yard Frankincense. Have you tried that OP? I'm dying to try the new Intense version, might treat myself before Christmas.

I use the Shea Ultra Rich Face Cream and I love it, best night cream I've used.

chockbic Sun 16-Nov-14 21:32:29

Not keen on their hand cream, too greasy.

Absolutely addicted !

The Precious Night cream is an absolute must for me and my DD- nothing and I mean nothing keeps my(her) skin so smooth and strangely keeps the spots at bay.
In the past I have drifted to try other creams and regretted it.
No chance now - its amazing !

I do have the Divine cream as well which I use when my skin is extra dry. it is lovely but v expensive so I eek the pot out and use it 2- 3 times a week in addition.
I am 52 - a (lovely) person thought I was 39 -40 last week. I have been extra careful with my skin though.

I use the shea hand cream which is easily the best I've ever used.
I also use some of their soap and perfume. The face range seems so expensive and combined with the fact I associate the brand more with body care I've never tried the face products.

I'm a new convert to Nuxe

Don't like the Shea hand cream. Love the lavender foot cream.

Their perfumes are very alcohol heavy and give me a headache.
