L'Occitane - New Lip Care

Looking after your lips is perhaps something we don't discuss enough, it is definitely a little bit more than just applying a lip balms every now and again.  I am someone who suffers from cold sores, they usually rear their ugly head when I am feeling run down or stressed and they arrive with a big bang, are sore, unsightly and make me feel really paranoid.  So, I do everything I can to ensure my lips are in as good a condition as they can be - I exfoliate a few times a week, I am obsessed with lip balms and lip oils, if I wear lipstick, I make sure I prime my lips and when I get home of an evening, I always ensure I clean my lips, even if it is just with a warm flannel, to ensure I have removed absolutely anything that can lead to nasties.
L'Occitane - New Lip Care
From L'Occitane we have an incredible collection of Lip Care products whether you like lip balms, lipsticks or scrubs, there is a lot of choice from L'Occitane and depending on your preference for colour, everything comes beautifully and brightly packaged in Yellow!

I do love a good lip scrub, I have used them for as long as I can remember and have never been one to use an old toothbrush and sugar, something I have seen others do.  L'occitane has a choice of three scrubs Marmalade Kiss, Raspberry Crush and the one I have been kindly sent which is Fabulous Fig.  Nestled inside a cute little jar there is an 11ml scrub and Fabulous Fig smells as fresh as those freshly picked figs from a tree. 
L'Occitane Lip Scrub
Described as being 'Addictive exfoliating lip care for instantly soft, smooth and comfortable lips!' this scrub is not only packed with Fig Extract but it also contains vitamin E, along with carrot, pomelo and pomegranate oils.   The 'scrub' being made up of Walnut shell powder and on the lips, the texture feels a bit like Jam and it also looks a little bit like Jam too, once the lid has been removed from the pot.

L'Occitane Lip Scrub Swatch
To use these scrubs, you need to ensure that your lips are dry and then simply apply directly to the lips, massaging in circles as you do so.  If you find your lips are really dry and chapped then you can apply more pressure to really give your lips a workout.  Once you have worked the scrub across both lips, you can then remove using warm water and a cloth to give your lips a final scrub before finishing.  Whenever I use a scrub, I always ensure I apply a balm to my lips afterwards, to help moisturise and nourish.

Each of these Lip Scrubs is priced at £14 here*.

If lipsticks are more your thing then L'Occitane has a collection of 9 to capture your attention and with everything from nude to red and everything in between.  I was kindly sent Provence Sunset and again, the first thing you notice is the bright yellow packaging.

L'Occitane Fruity Lipstick Provence Sunset
Provence Sunset is described as being a natural pink shade and it is infused with a fruity combination of Pomegranate, Carrot and Pomelos oils rich which are rich in vitamins C and E. What I really love is the texture, which is almost like a lip oil and this is in part due to the Castor Oil which gives it that lovely moisturising feeling as it glides across the lips.
L'Occitane Fruity Lipstick Swatch
This lipstick has a really lovely sweet citrus scent which I really lovely and the natural pink shade gives my lips a really lovely shiny touch of pink. The swatch above is totally unedited and I have found it to be really hydrating on my lips.

Each one of these lipsticks is priced at £18 right here*.

As ever from L'Occitane, this has been quite the introduction to a new launch of products and if, like me, you are a fan of the brand, they have a whole lot more newness waiting to be discovered.

  6. It is always important to look after your lips whatever the weather. Sometimes when the lips get dry and flakely they also end up sore, so this looks like a very good product to help address that.

    Much appreciate the sharing!
