With Spring right around the corner, it’s about time we actually did some spring cleaning with our bathroom cabinets. Remember that shampoo you’ve been keeping at the corner of your bathroom that you’ve promised yourself to toss out because it wasn’t doing any good for your tresses? And what about that body lotion sitting under your sink that you haven’t touched in decades? If you’re the kind who finds it tough to let go of these items from your bathroom, well, we strongly suggest you reconsider your actions — besides, the last thing you need is an allergic skin reaction from using any of them.
Now that you’ve thrown the unnecessary chunk of products out of your cabinet because, 1) they’re outdated, 2) its impractical, or 3) they’re just flat out unnecessary, then its time to dive into updating your shelfie with the necessary goods like the ones from French luxury beauty brand, L’OCCITANE. (Besides, what better excuse to shop for new things now that we’ve cleared the cobwebs in our stash!)
Ahead, we’ve listed out some of the latest additions that L’OCCITANE has in-store for us for the new season ahead.
LE PETIT REMÈDE UNIVERSAL BALM
Whatever generation you’re in, whether you’re a millennial or a boomer, finding a multi-beneficial product that’s convenient and effective at the same time has been something that’s been growing in popularity over recent years, and for obvious reasons. In an age where we’re always on the go, with little or no time to spare on our beauty routine, incorporating a product that does it all would definitely do us some good considering the lack of TLC we give ourselves on the daily.
So what should you do if you have dry, irritated skin or even lacklustre locks you might ask? Consider Le Petit Remède.
Formulated with a unique blend of L’OCCITANE’s most iconic ingredients, the Le Petit Remède sees a mix of the brand’s signature Immortelle flower, shea butter, lavender and almond — topped with one additional ingredient: arnica. Typically used to treat muscle pain, bruising and inflammation, arnica has been considered a staple ingredient, especially when it comes to healing balms.
With up to 50 ways of using the balm, the Le Petit Remède can be used on areas such as your hands, face, body and even your hair! We’re not kidding, it’s a promising pod that just keeps on giving.
Encased in a small and convenient pod, you can also slip the Le Petit Remède into your bag and bring it wherever you go! Now you’ve no excuse for not pampering yourself when you can do so even when you’re on the move.
The Le Petit RemÈde ($24) will be available from 2 April 2020 at L’Occitane stores islandwide and on SG.LOCCITANE.COM.
SHEA BABY RANGE
Now this one’s for your little bundle of joy. L’OCCITANE has just expanded its coveted shea butter care range made for your little ones and it encompasses the brand’s iconic ingredient, well, uh, shea butter, duh.
If you love the heavenly scent of baby powder, then we’ve just found what you’ve been looking for. Formulated with natural and gentle ingredients, the Shea Baby range features their Cuddles & Bubbles Foaming Cream, Shea Baby Lovely & Gentle Moisturising Milk and their latest addition, the Shea Baby Infinitely Gentle Cleansing Water — that’s made specifically to cleanse and nourish your baby’s delicate skin, hair and scalp! It’s time to soak up, baby!
Shea Baby range retails from $28 to $48, and will be available in stores and online at SG.LOCCITANE.COM.
2020 HIBISCUS SOLIDARITY BALM
Similar to the Le Petit Remède balm, L’OCCITANE introduces the 2020 Hibiscus Solidarity Balm, a balm that is said to nourish the legs, body, hair and lips. To celebrate the women of Burkina Faso, this limited-edition set is formulated with 100% fair-trade shea butter, just like the brand’s iconic shea collection, and is also accented with a sweet, floral scent.
But that’s not all. In fact, the sale of the solidarity balm also supports a good cause, of which 30,000 Burkinabe women have benefited thanks to L’OCCITANE’s movement!
L’Occitane’s 2020 HIBISCUS Solidarity Balm ($8) will only be available exclusively in retail stores.
GENTLE & BALANCE SHAMPOO
Last but not least, a new haircare range to cleanse and soothe even the most sensitive scalps — presenting to you L’OCCITANE’s Gentle & Balance Shampoo and Conditioner. Formulated with PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) lavender essential oil, the haircare range delivers its promise when it comes to soothing irritated scalps while gently cleansing your hair from impurities. To top it all off, it’s also SLS-free, so it works perfectly fine for all scalp and hair types, including coloured hair!
