LIKE A YUMMY FROZEN DESSERT

Imagine a cooling and refreshing sorbet in a middle of super hot day. How it lingers your throat and you can still feel the freshness after you swallowed it. That was the feeling I got when I tried the latest range from L’Occitane, Sorbet Verbena.

Another limited edition items to grab quickly before they’re gone, they are pack with mix of lime, grapefruit, verbena, peppermint, spearmint and a base of white woods and musk. Subtle like any L’Occitane products, yet citrusy and sparkling. They were launched to celebrate summer in other parts of the world, but in my hometown (where summer celebrated mostly every day of the year) I wish this range will become a permanent collection. 

There are 5 products of Sorbet Verbena in L’Occitane Indonesia stores: Body Ice Gel (Rp 350.000), Cooling Gloss (Rp 185.000), EDT (Rp 620.000), Exfoliating Shower Gel (Rp 255.000) and Refreshing Mist (Rp 180.000). 

Extra tip: Put Refreshing Mist inside the refrigerator before you bring them inside your bag. Spray whenever you feel like you and your skin need refreshment after a long hot day, especially to get rid of those smell after you got ‘baked’ under the sun. Not sticky at all and the bottle is small enough to carry around. I love it.

A DAY TRIP

There’s always a time when I have to take a day trip and too lazy to bring my whole makeup stuffs. These are my weapons to survive those 24 hours trip.
– Deodorant from Nivea : This particular one helps a lot since I wear black and white most of the time. It won’t leave white marks on black tops and yellow stains on white tops.
– Shampoo, conditioner and body wash from Fresh : I love this brand. It smell terrific and somehow the aroma last longer on your body. Perfect size for travel.
– Moisturizing oil from The Body Shop : Multifunction stuff always works for traveling purpose. This will help moisturize skin, hair and face in a light way, which is cool if we’re traveling to a humid place.
– Lip balm from Vaseline. Another multifunction item to moisturize lips and give a tint of rosy color.
– Face moisturizer from La Mer. Because taking care of our skin while traveling is still a big must.  
– Face cleanser from Clarisonic. I love the machine, Mia, (shown here in pink) and it comes with the traveling size gel cleanser which turns out to be refreshing.
– Eye serum from Biotherm. This Skin Vivo eye serum doesn’t make my eyes sting as I have super sensitive eyes that can go teary if I put on wrong eye cream or serum. 
– Pillow mist from L’Occitane. Being a clean freak myself, I always carry this around when I travelled to protect me from those smelly pillows in the hotel room. 
– EDT from Victoria’s Secret. Sheer Love, my favorite fragrance. It’s sheer and not too overpowering for everyday use.  

ONE FOR ALL, ALL FOR ONE

It’s a bit hard to find those creamy and gentle body wash that still produced a foaming effect. But this body wash did all that. Creamy, smells so tender and foamy as well. L’Occitane Bonne Mere Gentle Body Wash is so gentle, it can be used by those little members of your family (in my case, my two boys). Comes in a huge plastic bottle, it surely delight our bathing routine everyday.
