L'OCCITANE Repairing Shampoo & Conditioner

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Anyone who is anyone will love trying new products, so after ordering my Mum a magazine subscription of Elle Decoration for Christmas and receiving a free L'occitane shampoo and conditioner set, I was over the moon when my Mum allowed me to keep it!

And after trying it, I was even higher above that moon!

Oooooo it's a special little product!

Let's start with the packaging, they come in a tinted green bottle, which actually makes it feel really organic, I'm not even a fan of the colour green, but it does remind me of nature and makes me feel clean and healthy, and the label is pink, and well we all know how i feel about pink stuff, the lid is a silver flip top, with a pearlescent effect, leaving the bottle smart and appealing to the eye, but not over done, and the hole in the lid is the right size to squeeze the perfect amount out.

Talking of squeezing the perfect amount, I can 100% say this product goes a long, long way. I poured a small amount into my hand, leaving the bottle open, as I was expecting to use this for my roots only, and it lathered up and literally spread to the ends of my hair, which my hair is medium length and quite thick, so I was highly surprised! At that point my partner walked in to say goodbye and leave for work and I was like you need to take a snap of my hair!!

It felt luxurious, the lather was so soft and full, and usually when you rinse out your hair, it can feel quite dry before conditioning, as it has been stripped of all the natural oils, but it still felt moistured and I could run my fingers through it.

The conditioner did not disappoint either, fully moisturising, got quite a lot out of the amount used, the scent is beautiful, again clean, refreshing. After rinsing out my hair, it felt hydrated, almost like the product hadn't been fully rinsed out, but without leaving the heavy residue.

I always blow dry and straighten my locks, but even when I took it out of the towel, my curls looked full of life, thick and bouncy, and it even for that split second made me want to leave my hair curly, but then the realisation quickly kicked in, that I hadn't done that in over 5 years and wouldn't know how to handle it!

But I just felt good, even usually the day I wash my hair I normally have to have it tied back as it can go a bit cray cray, but I opted for the half up, half down, and it seemed to hold, even considering it was like the windiest day ever!

The shampoo and conditioner claims to help repair, strengthen and protect dry and damaged hair, so I can't wait to see how my hairs doing after a few weeks of using it, as I'm loving it already, and the product also contains 5 essential oils which are, Ylang-Ylang, Sweet Orange, Lavender, Geranium and Angelica, and have Plant- derived restructuring amino acids, which I say win, win for the product and the scent!

So thank you L'occitane for working with Elle, Mum, for wanting the magazine, Mum for also giving me the complimentary items, and maybe myself for buying you it as a pressie ;)

I have the L'occitane repairing shampoo in 300ml and the conditioner in 250ml, both RRP at £16 each, which is extremely good value for money, and you can also purchase different sized bottles from the L'occitane website,


If you guys have tried any of their other amazing products, please feel free to let me know what you like best!?

Muchos Love,
