L’Occitane Samplage

My younger brother’s wife found out that she was pregnant and so for her birthday I decided to pick up a Gift Set from L’Occitane that consisted of a few of their bestsellers including the cult-fave Almond Oil. I’m already an aunt (thrice over) to my sister’s kids, but the eldest (whom I took shopping in the previous posts here and here and here and here) just turned 11, and my nephew is 9 and their younger sister is 7, so it’s been a minute since we’ve had a baby in the family. That’s why I’m super excited for the new arrival! I’ve never been pregnant (and don’t plan on getting pregnant, ever, because some people are just not meant to be parents), but most of my friends have popped out several babies at this point, and the one thing they all complain about is stretch marks. As such, I figured this particular Gift Set might possibly help in that department. The Almond Gift Set came with the Almond Shower Oil (250ml) – Almond Supple Skin Oil (100ml) – Almond Hand Cream (30ml) – Almond Milk Concentrate (200ml) all beautifully packaged. I must admit, I gave the testers a sniff in-store and they all smelled lovely! Hopefully, they’ll help keep those pesky stretch marks at bay! The Sales Assistant even tossed in a few samples (as per usual, L’Occitane were very generous with their samples!) that included a Foaming CleanserFace CreamSerumEye Balm, and I can’t to play around with them!

The Body Shop Addendum

At the Avenues with my darling sister-in-law (my younger brother’s wife), I popped into The Body Shop and picked up these 2 Eye Creams. I was so impressed by the Oils of Life Sleeping Cream (hauled here) that I wanted to try out something else from the Oils of Life range, which happened to be the Oils of Life Eye Cream-Gel. While there, I was also quite charmed by the Unperfumed Eye Gel (which happened to be on sale) so I got 2 of that, as well; 1 for my sister-in-law and 1 for myself.
