We have five sets to give away, with Mint Verbena Eau de Toilette, Body Ice Gel & Shower Gel, each set worth £85

Light and fresh as a sea breeze by the blue green waters of the Mediterranean, this is one of our favourite ever offerings from L’Occitane.

A word about this very special brand first. L’Occitane founder and philanthropist Olivier Baussan started creating skincare from the fragrance flora of his native Provence in the 1970s, at the age of 23. His interest was sparked when he found an old distilling machine, in pieces in a back yard. He started making essential oils from the lavender and rosemary that grew abundantly all around him and sold them at local markets. The rest is beauty history.

Today, L’Occitane is a successful global brand, with a charitable foundation that focuses on the prevention of blindness and sight loss in Burkina Faso as well as the economic emancipation of women. The company has established fair-trade agreements with women’s cooperatives there, which produce shea butter for L’Occitane’s bath, body and face care products. The co-op originally numbered just 12 local women; today over 12,000 benefit from secure regular income.

So you can see why we love the philosophy and ethics of L’Occitane. And, of course, the products are just heavenly to use and wonderfully effective.  In fact, the skincare has consistently won Gold (and even Platinum) awards from Beauty Bible. (Check it out here.)

For this prize draw, each of the five winners will receive the following set of limited edition products:

• Mint Verbena Eau de Toilette (normally £46 for 100 ml) – the fragrance equivalent of sipping a frosted lemonade topped with fresh crisp mint leaves. Top notes of lime and grapefruit cede to a verbena and spearmint heart, above a base of white wood and musk. And it’s unisex!

• Mint Verbena Shower Gel (£16 for 250 ml) – revive a sun-drenched body and invigorate your mind with this sparkling shower gel.

Mint Verbena Body Ice Gel (£24 for 250 ml) – cool your skin from top to toe with this moisturising body gel and veil your body in this minty-fresh citrus scent.
