L'Occitane Shea Sparkling Leaves Collection

I don't think L'Occitane will ever release a product that I am more obsessed about than the Almond Shower Oil, or indeed the entire Almond Collection, it is just the best. However, that doesn't mean I am not wanting to try every other product that is released, especially when it sounds so scrumptious.
L'Occitane Shea Sparkling Leaves Collection
Meet the Shea Sparkling Leaves Rich as Honey collection, described as being a citrusy green scent of Sparkling Leaves where fresh notes of mandarin and ginger, glister against the warm backdrop of woody shea and sandalwood. Simply divine. The collection comprises of some amazing products and I am sharing five of them with you in this post, so whether you choose to love one of them or all five of them, you are in for a treat.  

Starting with the Shea Sparkling Leaves Rich as Honey Shower Gel (£17.50) you have a product which is suitable for all skin types and one which is enriched with softening shea butter and moisturising olive oil to gently cleanse the skin while at the same time leaving it delicately fragranced with what is described as being 'a scent inspired by a walk in the Proven├žal olive tree fields, combining fresh and sparkling notes of olive tree leaves and fruits'.  Not only does it smell exactly as that description envisages, it has a texture that looks just like dark honey and is divine on the skin.

The second product is the Shea Sparkling Leaves Body Exfoliating Scrub (£30) and it is designed to soften and smooth the skin.

Again, it has an infusion of shea extract, olive oil and olive leaf powder which again has those scent notes of sunny fruit and olive leaves, but the best part is the indulgent jelly texture which I was not expecting to find and it reminds me of a crushed Kiwi Fruit, though it smells a whole lot better. On the skin, the Olive Leaf Powder works its magic to exfoliate your skin to leave it feeling not only soft and smooth to the touch, but also delicately scented too.

Up next is the Shea Sparkling Leaves Extra-Gentle Soap (£5.50) which you can get a real scent of before removing the wrapping.

Again, this soap is enriched with shea butter, an ingredient known for its softening and nourishing properties, it not only cleanses the skin but also envelopes it with that same citrusy green set of notes which runs throughout this collection. When mixed with warm water, it creates a generous lather, so whether you choose to use it to just wash your hands, or elsewhere, the scent lingers on the skin and in the room it has been used in.

One brand that is guaranteed to have me using their body creams is L'Occitane, so within this collection is the Sparkling Leaves Ultra Light Body Cream (£34.50) and again, packaged similarly to the Body Scrub, it is just a delight to use.

Again, formulated with 5% shea butter, this body cream works to leave the skin feeling supple, comfortable and moisturised. It has a really unique whipped like texture which melts onto and into the skin when applied and as it does so, those green citrus notes again, lightly scent the skin.

Then finally, fans of the brand won't be too shocked to see that this collection features a hand cream, The Sparkling Leaves Light Hand Cream (£22).

Again, formulated with 5% Shea Butter, this hand cream has the same whipped cream texture as the body cream and when used, it leaves skin feeling soft and protected from dryness. If like me you make your way through a tube of hand cream as quick as a box of Maltersers, then this one is super special, those cirtusy green notes are really noticeable and my hands are always left feeling really nourished after using.

If you like the sound of the Shea Sparkling Leaves Collection, then it is a Limited Edition and to get your hands on it along with the rest of the products, you can find them and the web exclusives online right here.
