When it comes to gifting, you really can’t go wrong with L’Occitane especially as they always have such lovely seasonal gift sets. I know to some it might sound a little early to be discussing Christmas, but some of us (including myself) only have two more payday’s before Christmas so it’s time to get organised to avoid the last minute rush and the L’Occitane Kelly Hoppen Almond Collection would make for the perfect gift for men and women in my opinion as the Almond Collection is so universally appealing. The L’Occitane Kelly Hoppen Almond Collection is £38 yet the contents are worth £49.50 which doesn’t even include the price of the beautiful bag. The gift set is packaged within a lovely, hessian zipped washbag which is a really generous size, and the design of the bag was created by Kelly Hoppen; an award winning interior and product designer. The pouch has a mixture of textures, and the colours of this particular pouch are quite unisex in tone but there are two other gift pouch collections to choose from if you don’t like the Almond collection.
• Almond Shower Oil 250ml
This shower oil, when in contact with water, transforms into a lavish, softening foam–original and unique in texture–that leaves a satin-like softness all over the body. Enriched with almond oil, it respects the hydrolipidic film and leaves a subtle and mouth-watering scent of fresh almond, for a delightful skin!
• Almond Delicious Hands 30ml
Enriched with Almond milk and Almond oil, the silky-smooth cream Almond Delicious Hand helps to nourish and soften the hands while enveloping them with the subtle and mouth-watering scent of fresh Almonds. Our non-greasy formula has a creamy texture, perfect for hydrating hands throughout the day.
• Almond Delicious Soap 50g
The Almond Delicious Soap is a treat for your skin. Ground almond shells gently scrub away dead skin cells, leaving hands clean and rough areas (elbows, knees, feet) smooth. Sweet almond oil from Provence leaves skin delicately perfumed with the gourmand scent of almonds.
• Almond Delicious Paste 50ml
A delicious blend of almond butter and almond oil, infused with crushed almond shells and sugar crystals, Delicious Paste effectively treats skin by eliminating dead cells and refining its texture. Skin is left perfectly smooth and soft, delicately fragranced with the crunchy notes of fresh almond.
This is such a gorgeous gift set, and I think the Almond Collection is my favourite L’Occitane collection as it smells incredible and leaves the skin feeling amazingly soft and silky. I really like that the set has one full size product (the shower oil), and deluxe miniatures as it allows you to get a good try of the rest of the range and really lather the sweet Almond scent. Before getting this set, I’d never tried the Almond Delicious Paste but I think it might be a new favourite as it’s nice and scrubby, and delicate enough for my super sensitive skin and I can imagine myself purchasing the full size once I finish this deluxe travel sized jar. If the Almond Collection doesn’t appeal to you, there is also the Kelly Hoppen Verbena Collection for those who prefer fresh, herbal scents and the Kelly Hoppen Pivoine Collection for floral lovers so there’s bound to be something for everyone, but the L’Occitane Kelly Hoppen Almond Collection is definitely my favourite from the trio.
