If there’s one thing that L’Occitane excels at, it’s shea products. This October sees the launch of the Melting Honey range and it’s absolutely sumptuous! I don’t even like honey, and I like this. The range comprises an Exfoliating Sugar Scrub, a Shower Gel, an Ultra Soft Cream, a Hand Cream, a Lip Balm and the L’Occitane annual Solidarity Soap (£3) that gives 100% of profit to sight health.
I really like the way that L’Occitane offers something very affordable as a fundraiser – the soap is beautiful quality and it’s just a lovely thing to have on top of the fact that for each soap purchased, someone from a rural area in Burkino Faso (where L’Occitane sources its shea) will have access to eye care and glasses. When you can’t see properly, everything in your life is affected; it’s unimaginable really that something as simple as glasses changes not only your view of the world (your children, your family maybe) but enables you to work and provide. To give you a benchmark of how many people this little soap can help, L’Occitane raised EU162,000 last year.
My top selection from the L’Occitane Shea & Honey is the Exfoliating Sugar – it’s £22 and a heavenly treat for the body that leaves it super smoothed and moisturised. Of course, if you love the scent of honey, the Lip Balm (£8.50) will do it for you!
The L’Occitane Shea & Honey launches in October – World Sight Day is the 8th October.
