L’Occitane Divine Collection


Every year L’Occitane pull out all the stops on their Christmas gifts – something literally for everyone, from a tree bauble or a set of crackers through to very, very special gifts indeed. Beauty Bible is proud to have played a role in putting L’Occitane’s Divine skincare on the map after it performed so stupendously in our Beauty Bible Awards ‘Miracle Cream’ category, wowing every one of the testers who trialled it.

Since then, Divine has grown into a comprehensive skincare collection for which we have a massive affection – and this is a stonking gift for the many, many other Divine-lovers out there. A saving of £30 on the normal prices, it offers a 200 ml sizes of the delicious-to-use Immortelle Oil Make-up Remover and Divine Lotion (which ‘preps’ the skin, leaving it super-soft and helping to accelerate skin renewal in its own right), plus a 50 ml size of the iconic, best-in-class Divine Cream.

As ever, the collection is infused with the fabulously aromatic scent of immortelle oil, a potent de-ageing essential oil from the island of Corsica. (It’s this scent which has many Divine devotees hooked, leaving aside what they see in the mirror after using the skincare…)

If this is just a bit too blow-the-budget for those on your list (and you can’t justify it for yourself with all that Christmas shopping to do), we’d still point you in the direction of L’Occitane for gifts of all prices. Personally, we’d be thrilled to bits with pretty much anything – but would really, really love the 40th Anniversary Hand Cream Trio, offering 30 ml sizes of the Shea Butter, Cherry Blossom and Roses and Reines Hand creams, in a colourful tin emblazoned with the word ‘LOVE’.

Which definitely sums up how we feel about L’Occitane!
