L'Occitane & My Little Box event

L'Occitane is a brand I am absolutely loving the discovery of and there are a few products to share on the blog in coming weeks, but last week I was invited along to the Covent Garden store to a blogger event which was in conjunction with My Little Box, a beauty box which has taken the blogging world my storm and one I was keen to learn more about.

On arrival I was treated to an absolutely amazing and most relaxing hand massage and then was introduced to the My Little Box which is filled with L'Occitane hero products. For those not in the know, My Little Box is a hand-picked and beautifully designed box of fashion, beauty and lifestyle surprises. This box aptly named My Little Provence Box is adorned with a floral pattern and a striking figure of a woman.



Inside the box there are seven items in total. The first item I saw is a card with the saying "In Provence, the sun rises twice a day - once in the morning and once after nap time" by Yvan Audouard, a writer and journalist. There is also a newspaper which opens right out into a huge print after you read all the articles, including what the fabulous Really Ree has inside her vanity bag!



Next is perhaps the best item I have come across in a beauty box. My Little Provence Doll. Not an actual doll but a magnetic one with magnetic clothes, hours of fun to be had with this.



Sunny Things inside Cuff - This I love. I am not the most artistic of people, but being able to make my own bracelet really appeals. The cuff is described as being the ultimate DIY accessory for the summer. Inside this box you have the cuff bracelet and two different coloured cotton threads, I have a navy blue and bright blue and all you need to do is follow the instructions to create it.




Naturally being a beauty box there is a little tote bag which has those four L'Occitane hero products inside and this is what there is:

  • Mer & Mistral Shower Gel - The Mer & Mistral Fresh Shower Gel gently cleanses the skin, leaving it freshly perfumed with the aquatic and aromatic scent of the Mer & Mistral fragrance. Skin is left clean and perfumed with an invigorating scent which lingers on the skin all day.
  • Roses et Reines hand and nail creme - Enriched with shea butter and vitamin E, the Roses et Reines Hand & Nail Cream helps nourish, soften and protect the hands while helping to strengthen the nails. This is a lovely little handcream, it smells very much of fresh roses and it leaves your hand so soft and moisturised.
  • Verbena Body Lotion - Enriched with organic Verbena extract and grape seed oil, this body light lotion gently moisturises, nourishes and softens the skin, leaving it delicately fragranced with a uplifting zesty aroma.  This is a perfect for those mornings when you just need a poke in the ribs to wake you up, a sharp scent which really hits the senses.
  • Soap with Verbena Leaves - Crushed verbena leaves gently exfoliate as you wash or shower. All-vegetal, non-detergent cleansing base won't dry skin. Rich and creamy, with a light citrus scent.  I am not the worlds biggest fan of soap, it isn't something I tend to get that excited over, but I do love the scent of this and as L'Occitane state, it doesn't dry out your skin.

The final item is The Amazing eyeshadow crayon (rrp £9) of which mine is a metallic brown shade and it is a shade I actually quite like. Like most eyeshadow crayons, it is easy to use and features a twist bottom so you don't have to sharpen it.


As a L'Occitane fan, I absolutely love this box, it contains products I have never tried and it is a perfect weekend away treat all rolled into one with a bit of fun when it comes to the magnetic doll and cuff bracelet.
